Hey Chad it might be that some people had rather watch Rachel Maddow or Christiane Amanpour than Megyn Kelley, I'm just not one of them!!!

I kind of agree with this take on the whole thing.


Is New Black Panther panic the right's answer to militia panic on the left?
15 JUL 2010 12:03 PM

by Dave Weigel

Jesse Walker, keying off my argument about Fox News and the Panthers, thinks that's the case.

The New Black Panther Party plays the same role for the right that Hutaree-style militants play for the left: They're a tiny, uninfluential group whose importance is magnified to keep the base excited. Left and right wind up worrying more about each other than they care about the institutions that actually govern the country. It's great if your goal is maintaining movement identity, but not if you're more interested in changing policy than collecting scalps.
I like this comparison and think it's 99% true. The 1% where it's not true -- the left gets attention when warning about militia dangers because of Oklahoma City. Unfair, probably, but militia members who mean well know how damaging the legacy of Timothy McVeigh has been. The left knows this, and that's why you see a rush to paint conservatives with the "militia" brush -- Americans hear it and think "like those terrorists who blew up the Murrah building!" By contrast, the fringe New Black Panthers are more silly than violent. The only "violence" I can think of them being involved came when they stupidly charged into volatile situations in racial hotspots, in order to get media attention. But I can't think of anyone who's charged them with violence.

That's not to defend the Panthers. It's just to point out the ridiculousness of this story. The Hutaree cult didn't pose a threat to anyone. These idiots don't pose a threat to anyone. It's easy, and lazy, to see a 30-second clip of scary guys in military garb and yell "Open-shut case! Voter intimidation! We have video!" But when you stop and realize that 1) no one has claimed the NBPP stopped them from voting, 2) the Philadelphia precinct was the only one where this tiny group pulled this stunt, and 3) they're about as threatening as any other group of racist newsletter editors, you realize the game being played.

long time Fox viewer here...there is a reason Kirstin Powers is now a columnist at the NY Post instead of on staff at Fox...she had her shot as the stations replacement to Alan Colmes, but she has shown time and again that she does not hold up well in a political argument on air even when she is bringing it from the opposite political side, thats probably why she is only an occasional news contributor instead of on staff

Megyn Kelly rocks...I like the new replacement, Jenna Lee in the Happening Now program

i dont get your satiric angle on this. clearly she knows far more about what it takes to be president than the current occupant does....
:)
funny - with time, her comment that seemed stupid at the time is pretty accurate, she knows more about what it takes to be president now than barrack hussein obama.

and chris mathews' "spoogey-woogyey" up his leg is an even bigger joke now than it seemed at the time.....

I couldn't believe that comment, and what about the last statement, "and that's an objective assessment?"

At that time I couldn't stand Obama.

Was that the night that McCain did his speech where he repeated over and over and over - THAT's not change we can believe in?

Gretchen Carlson has an axe to grind with the current administration....her parents GMC dealership was one of those closed when the govt took over..it shows many times in her lack of objectiveness

I wasn't going anywhere with it. Bon's comment about one of the FOX Babes just reminded me of the exchange.
