Video: Hillary plant insists he’s not a Hillary plant

posted at 12:17 pm on November 29, 2007 by Allahpundit

No campaign contributions, no volunteer work, just a little name-lending and endorsement. Let someone on one of Giuliani’s steering committees get waved through a Democratic debate to pose a question and see how that defense flies with the nutroots. John Roberts grudgingly admits there’s a “lesson” in this for the network but the point of this segment is obviously to do damage control — while, just coincidentally, giving Kerr another three minutes to make his case against “don’t ask, don’t tell.” Add up his airtime here to the minute and a half follow-up he was given last night. Did any Republican candidate get that amount of time to address a single issue?

The more I read, the more I’m agreeing with Jason Coleman about this debate thing. I hope he doesn’t mind me posting a snippet from his website regarding his outing of the “corn questioner” Ted:

“The purpose of Primary Election Debates is for members of a party to evaluate their candidates, to compare them to one another in a fair and relatively complete manner, so that we, the Republicans, can choose who we would like to be our candidate in the General Election of 2008. By including General Kerr (a man who has openly endorsed Hillary Clinton and who is also a member of Hillary’s steering committee), by including others who have openly endorsed Democrat Candidates, by including a person who works with Democrat Senator Dick Durbin’s office, by including a prominent union activist for the Edwards-endorsing United Steelworkers, by including a Democrat aspiring TV writer who has a fondness for racially insensitive “pseudo-satire”, and by including you, a former intern for Democrat Congresswoman Jane Harman, CNN has deprived us, the Republicans, the opportunity to have a fair Republican Primary Debate.”

Really, the purpose of the Primary debates are for us Republicans to listen to and choose our candidate. Same for Democratic debates.

When they’re chosen, we can move on to questions from all over the spectrum. But at this point, we should be hearing them answer to the issues that concern our respective sides.

Rush just said, “you can’t tell me that this General who was FLOWN in from California to be at this debate is not a plant”.

What kind of plant is he/she? A Tulip?

Retired General Kerr is a plant for Hillary, but I guess he is so comfortable in the closet that it didn’t occur to him to tell the truth about his affiliations.

Bill Clinton gave us “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”
Why support his wife?

“Our bad for not investigating” Ha Ha
Incompetant idiot

The General/Colonel was not a plant he was a little boy who had reached his peter principle and just had to tell. That’s the reason for his reason for his retirement.

tis only the beginning. How much more friggin trickery are ya’ll gonna tolerate from this woman? Plant or no plant.
Has anyone heard her even talk about anything in a week?

Is CNN biased, stupid or both. I think the latter. If not for Lou Dobbs they would be unwatchable, but I remain a fan of his…

The Free Republic is reporting that Kerr was a guest on CNN on Dec. 11, 2003 as a spokesperson for gays in the military.

What more can CNN do to destroy its credibility? There has been a long history of similar abuses.

Considering that CNN has repeatedly claimed it worked hard to make sure that the sort of people who got air time during that debate [liberal partisians] wouldn’t, I smell a rat. Contact your elected US representatives and DEMAND an FCC/FEC investigation into this fraud filled debate broadcast by CNN! These questions must be answered:

1) Who was behind this conspiracy?

2) How much did CNN really know?

3) Which democrat politicians took an active part in this conspiracy?

4) How much money changed hands?

5) How much in in-kind contributions changed hands?

The FCC is supposed to investigate anything malicious which is broadcast on America’s airwaves. The current Democrat Congress is well known to investigate almost anything. Demand that they investigate this, and that they do it now.
