netroots - 1, fox noise - 0

score another win for blogtopia and yes, we coined that pharse. the democratic debate that was sponsored by the congressional black caucus and to be broadcast exclusively on fox noise has been cancelled due to lack of interest. asspress:

fox news and a black political group say they will not hold a sept. 23 democratic presidential debate in detroit, which the leading candidates already were planning to skip.

a new date had not yet been set, fox news spokesman michael murphy said thursday.

the campaigns of u.s. sens. hillary rodham clinton and barack obama and former sen. john edwards had said they would not participate in the debate. opponents have criticized fox as biased against democrats.

the debate, co-sponsored by the congressional black caucus political education and leadership institute, was to have been held at the fox theatre.

institute chairman u.s. rep. bennie thompson, d-miss., said in a statement on the group's web site that the "overwhelming number of party presidential debates has created a scheduling challenge."
skippy himself sent $50 to sen. edwards to reward him for being first to pull out of that debate (and now skippy keeps getting more emails asking for more money...go figure!) and steve bensen at c&l reinforces the idea that "the netroots worked very hard on this, and deserve a lot of credit for the outcome."

now what we hope doesn't happen is that the hardly-ever-right tries to spin this as discrimination against the congressional black caucus (tho in light of recent efforts to protray michael vick as the vick-tim in his trevails, we would not be surprised). after all, equal rights doesn't mean never getting called on bone-headed ideas.

Serves ya right!

I'm glad the Dems are giving Fox the cold shoulder. Fuck Fox. Me, I wouldn't piss on Rupert Murdoch's asshole if his hemmerhoids were blazing...

They will spend every cent you sent them asking for more, That is what it's for, after all.

And then, the rest of the dems will pile on. I have been solicited for over two years by Hil, the DNC, and various pols. Teach me never to donate again.
