« One Down, Two To Go | Main | OK, So Obama's A Liar »

HEH!Some list of heavy hitters.

(I thought you were gardening. )


Bwaaahhhhahahah. I am certain ABC is just quaking in their boots I tell ya.

OTOH, looks like some biggies are missing - weren't they invited to the signing party?

Markos "Screw'em"?
Joshua Micah?????

Someone has some 'splainin to do.

Patrick R. Sullivan

Some people take themselves waaaay too seriously.

The only specific gripe is about the capital gains tax question--which IS a policy issue--and Obama agreed with Gibson.


The people at The Nation are journalists? Who knew!


WTO says the US needs to 'be careful what it's asking for' I'll take all the money, but I won't work.

Patrick R. Sullivan

Here's John Lott giving us a reason not to ask questions on policy. The answer will probably be a lie:

In fact, I knew Obama during the mid-1990s, and his answers to [Independent Voters of Illinois]’s question on guns fit well with the Obama that I knew. Indeed, the first time I introduced myself to him he said “Oh, you are the gun guy.”

I responded “Yes, I guess so.” He simply responded that “I don’t believe that people should be able to own guns.”

When I said it might be fun to talk about the question sometime and about his support of the city of Chicago’s lawsuit against the gun makers, he simply grimaced and turned away, ending the conversation.

If taken literally, Obama’s statement to me was closer to what the IL State Legislative National Political Awareness Test found, indicating that Obama's bans would extend well beyond handguns.

John Lott is brilliant. He's more brillianter than all those journamalists put together, and I trust his account of Obama completely.


Awww, they're just bitter.

You go into some of these small irrelevant news organs across the country, and their relevance has been gone now for 25 years and nothings replaced them. And their relevance fell through the Clinton Administration, and the Bush Administration, and each succesive administration has said that somehow these irrelevant news organs are going to regenerate and they have not. So it's not surprising then, that they get bitter, they cling to modems or Das Kapital or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-War sentiment or anti-American sentiment as a way to express their frustrations.

Charlie (Colorado)

Brad DeLong?


"“I don’t believe that people should be able to own guns.”

I can't believe that the leaders of the Democrats think Obama can win a Presidential election.


Heck why didnt they post the entire masthead of the Nation? Do they have more than three employees? Who reads the rag anyway? Even Mother Jones probably has more readers than the pitiful little socialist workers rag.


I read the list, is there a section missing, the one that lists the journalists?


The quaking is usual when the Pope talks to the UN. Lucifer gets mad - bitter.

It's like everywhere Bill went someone got shot. Gun hater.

Those blogs are losers.


"A journalist is a reporter who is out of a job." Mark Twain.


Its amazing how transparent they are in their zeal to stifle any contrary opinions and control every aspect of their vision.

"Journalism" left itself open to this by its failure to act as an ethical profession.

People don't know what to believe.

Clearly these groups and individuals DID influence other debate questions. How about CNN's plants debate.

Journalism is done. It does not exist.

Scott Meyer

Who are these people? I may have seen articles by two of them. Maybe.


Reads like the roster of speakers at the International Blowhards Convention.
