Another "Classy" Hollywood Liberal

These words from Bette Midler, spoken during a recent Madison Square Garden Pay-Per-View concert for the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

I could stand up here and talk for hours about ineptitude, stupidity, blame, inequality, global warming, the dangerous destruction of the wetlands. But if I did, what will all those other people have to talk about? I'm telling you these are -- these are not just dangerous times, these are -- these times are disastrous. We're surrounded by disasters! The war, the hurricane, the Fox News. It just goes on and on. I get so depressed!

A terrible thing happened to me. Today I got a letter from the Republican Party thanking me, thanking me, thanking me for supporting this administration's policies. I did what any self-respecting American of integrity and class would do, I wrote "Go [bleep] yourself!" I sent it back! Postage due!

"Self-respecting American of integrity and class" - She doesn't even know the meaning of the words!

Bryan, what interests me is the mentioning of Fox News. Fox is a breath of fresh air in many ways, but they are hardly the voice of the National Review or the Republican Party. They are quick to mention negative polls, to interview pundits of the Democratic Party... and where are they on Able Danger and the Air America scandal?

The outcry against Fox News is indicative of the fact that liberals know they don't do well when both sides of the issues are treated with respect. They've had a monopoly on news information for so long, that it must appear to them that their sky is falling when their Ministers of Propaganda suddenly start losing audience to the truth.

Still, I believe that Fox News is sensitive to the criticism of the Left and sometimes because of that fact... they disappoint.

I was also intrigued by the mention of Fox News, but I think that her mention of Fox is really just typical of what the left does. They often simply repeat phrases and key words that they have heard without having the slightest idea what they are talking about. How many times have you heard someone say that they didn't like Bush, and when asked why, they said, "Because he lies." When you ask them how he lied, they reply, "WMDs." When you push them on the issue, they have no clue what they are talking about. I think Fox News is getting to be just another liberal buzz word. I wonder if Bette Midler has ever even watched Fox.
