Neoconservatives, Rupert Murdoch, Fox News, and the Weekly Standard
Edited on Mon Aug-21-06 04:36 PM by MikeyJones
Until today I had no idea there was any connection at all and then all of a sudden a friend of mine tells me Murdoch owns both Fox News(which I already knew) and also the Weekly Standard. That shocked me. Stunned me.

That might explain why William Kristol has a "Kristol Clear" segment on Faux News. If only Buchanan and James Baker and the rest of the old guard right-wingers would kick these bastards out of power we could actually go back to our own sane fight over the size of government and moral issues but these insane wackos have warped the debate so far I can't even recognize that party any more. It's like half the people followed Bush like lemmings off the cliff and into the ocean.

At least the old guard was actually intelligent and coherent in their beliefs and they didn't go about spitting mindless and psychotic talk of redrawing the political maps of the Middle East for the greater Likudnik good.

I think if anything has fucked this country up so bad it's got to be these neocons and their insane agenda. To see even traditional Republicans who were sane but wrong in their beliefs like Buchanan hop ship then you know the boat is sinking fast. If we allow these wackos to continue they're going to destroy this country within the decade.

What do you guys think is an effective strategy at wresting control of the country away from these nutjobs?

1. I did not know either, but am not surprised
Actually, the world needs worms like Murdoch. Their end result is great at producing new plants and making seedling grow strong. So is crap from any other source, though.

Our best strategy is telling the truth in simple, understandable (not John Kerry-ish) and provable terms.
