Who Invited Fox into the Democratic Henhouse?

I do not know who are the 'responsible' parties in this "plan" (I suspect the Carville/Schrumm/Brazille axis of idiocy), but it utterly defies credulity that Fox News convinced the Democratic Party to let Fox host a nationally-televised Democratic presidential primary debate this summer in Nevada! This MUST qualify as one of the DUMBEST FUCKING MOVES in history.

And Fox isn't even a legitimate news channel! It's a goddam right-wing mouthpiece like Rush Limbaugh—dedicated to smearing Democrats. (Recently, Fox anchors, reporters, and pundits unanimously trumpeted the FALSE STORY Sen. Barack Obama attended a terrorist school, and the network is committed to undoing Obama altogether!). There is no organization functioning in the public sphere--"legitimate" or not--that is more antithetical to the candidates and platforms of the Democratic Party than FUX Noise.

Since the announcement this week, there's a growing backlash of people demanding that Democrats drop Fox. Can you help out by signing this petition to the Democratic Party of Nevada? It's really easy—just click this link.

Just DO IT!
