The Risks For Politicians Who Link & Advertise With Bloggers
Sean Hannity: Now Terry MacCauliffe, the DNC advertises on a…I believe they call it a blog — called the Daily Kos. There was a big flap last week when a Markos Zuniga from that website seemed to support the murder of those 4 American contractors in Fallujah and the desecration of their bodies. By giving the Daily Kos advertising money, aren’t you endorsing their views?
Terry MacCauliffe: Terry that’s outrageous. We certainly would never support anything like that. I think you may be mischaracterizing what he said….
Sean Hannity: Here’s a quote, “That said, I feel nothing over the death of mercenaries. They aren’t in Iraq because of orders, or because they are there trying to help the people make Iraq a better place. They are there to wage war for profit. Screw them.” Why do you think it’s appropriate to talk about ex-soldiers, Americans, who were over in Iraq protecting food that way?
Terry MacCauliffe: You…Sean..I…I really didn’t know about this link. I think there was an aide….
Sean Hannity: It’s despicable Terry, despicable…
You know, I can’t say that I’m happy that the Bush campaign treats conservative bloggers like a bunch of lepers (they don’t even have links on their blog), but I can understand it. Personally, I think John Kerry is making a big mistake by linking all those lefty blogs. If contenders for the presidency are held accountable for their campaign contributors, people who are allowed to stay overnight in the website, and controversial groups they meet with, then it certainly makes sense to hold them accountable for blogs they link to.
PS: On the other hand, people running for Congress, like my advertisers, Bryan Coffman, Robert Lamutt, and my soon to be advertiser Nathan Tabor, all obviously deserve your money since they’re smart enough to recognize the genius that is Right Wing News and understand that unlike the Daily Kos, we’re not cheering on the murder of Americans in Iraq…
