The Passive-Aggressive Party

Democrats have cut off their nose to spite their pouty little faces, giving up a spot on the highest-rated news channel, ostensibly to make some kind of point.

Newsbusters relays the quip from Jay Leno:

Well, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and John Edwards as well as a number of other Democratic candidates say they will not participate in a presidential debate next month because the debate is on Fox News and Fox News is biased. Well, how are you going to stand up to terrorists when you're afraid of Fox News?

Conjuring images of obsequious groupies at some pythonesque royal court, Democrats have surrendered before the power of Fox News. ("We're not worthy! Not worthy!") Well, actually, they have surrendered to the supplications spewing from the cyber-orifices of and accumulating in similar dung heaps of the global village. hosted an online petition, to which I will not link:

It's time to take on Fox

The Democratic Party of Nevada just announced plans to team up with Fox News for a presidential primary debate. But Fox isn't a legitimate news channel. It's a right-wing mouthpiece like Rush Limbaugh and the Drudge Report—repeating false Republican talking points to smear Democrats. Sign this petition to ask the Democratic Party of Nevada to drop Fox from the debate.
I will also not bother to debate whether Fox is a "right-wing mouthpiece", except to note that from orbit, Everest and Marianas appear the same height. is so far to the left they couldn't tell a "right-wing mouthpiece" from The Aquarium Channel. Liberals have a lock on the sewer main media, and Fox goes out of its way not to be part of that.

Yet the liberals are indignant that any media would question their assumptions, and would challenge their alleged facts. Who can speak truth to power if the power fails to bobblehead approvingly? Who will do the homework for the candidates, if the media will not?

My message to liberals:

Just deal, already. Try to be grownups. It's hard, but you'll get used to it.

Then again, whining and pouting seem to work.
