Kerr-Fuffle

Well now! You simply MUST have heard all about it by now. And if you haven’t, here’s Mr. Sheri Annis’ take (and he is as we all know the most objective of all news sources) on the “debate” (ie. carefully stage-managed personal appearance cum fashion show) by the Republican Presidental Candidates, which produced a scandal of simply monumental proportions, my dears.

“CNN expressed regret yesterday for allowing a Hillary Clinton adviser to ask a question at Wednesday’s Republican presidential debate, even as controversy swirled about two other questioners who have declared their support for Democratic candidates.”

Gee whiz, Howie. Doesn’t CNN stand for CLINTON NEWS NETWORK ? That’s what just about everyone over at Patterico’s calls it. So why are they expressing “regret”?

“Retired Brig. Gen. Keith Kerr , who asked why gays should not be allowed to serve openly in the military, is a member of Clinton’s steering committee on gay and lesbian issues, something her campaign disclosed in a news release in June.”

Good Night Nurse!

IT’S A FAG!!!!!! Get General Petraeus the smelling salts!

“Had we known that, we probably wouldn’t have used the question,” said David Bohrman , CNN’s Washington bureau chief, who produced the debate. He added that “you could spend hours Googling everybody. What we cared about was that he was real.” CNN deleted Kerr’s question from a rebroadcast of the debate.
The New York senator’s campaign said in a statement that “Gen. Kerr is not a campaign employee and was not acting on behalf of the Clinton campaign.”
Kerr, a Californian who said he became openly gay after 43 years in the military, was one of 5,000 people who submitted videotaped questions through YouTube CNN also placed Kerr in the St. Petersburg Fla audience, where he followed up by calling the current “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy “destructive.”

And Pat Buchanan is far from impressed.

“Moderator Anderson Cooper acknowledged the error involving Kerr after Bill Bennett, the conservative author and radio host who is a network contributor, raised it during a post-debate discussion. Bennett said yesterday that his radio producer e-mailed him information from a National Review blog.
“It shouldn’t have ever happened,” Bennett said. “You’ve got to vet that sort of thing.”

– said the noted compulsive gambler and dominatrix enthusiast.

“On CNN’s “American Morning,” Kerr said he has done nothing for the Clinton campaign and that the video was “a private initiative on my own.” He also said he has supported Republicans.
Bohrman said network staffers, struck by Kerr’s “very powerful” question, verified his military service and determined from federal records that he had made no campaign contributions. He said CNN never spoke to Kerr and had Google which owns YouTube, bring the retired general and about a dozen other questioners to the debate because their videos were likely to be used, although no decision had been made.”

Here’s a clip of the general’s now banned question and the panels’ answers

Next time try picking something less “controversial” off YouTube.

All this chatter about “plants” brings to mind both Stevie Wonder and Gucky

No not his mendacious book, rather what happens when you put his name in quote on Amazon and press “Go.”

See?

As for General Kerr, we’re suppsoed be believe it’s all about journalistic “standard” when of course it’s all about Teh Ghay

Consequently I think the best reponse to all this neo-fascist bloviating is. . . .something real sweet:

and most of all –

“My romance
doesn’t have to have a moon in the sky
My romance
doesn’t need a blue lagoon standing by
No month of May
No twinkling stars
No hideaway
No soft guitar

My romance
doesn’t need a castle rising in Spain
Nor a dance
to a constantly surprising refrain
Wide awake
I can make my most fantastic dreams come true
My romance
doesn’t need a thing but you”
