Williams: Wallace “Wacky”?

October 25, 2009

Fairly balanced? Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace may have abided being called to account by former Prez Bill Clinton (for allegedly being a Fox shill doing a conservative hit job on Clinton). However, he was somewhat more sensitive when Fox’s very own, i.e., Juan Williams, took him to task on the public option.

During FNS’s segment on Obamacare, Wallace declared, “Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi [is] keeping hope alive for a government-run health insurance as a central feature of health care reform,” He further asserted, “It seems like it was only a week ago that everybody in this town said that the public option was dead. Turning to the panel, he asked, “[W]hat happened?”

When Williams’ time came, he sharply stated, “First of all, let me say, the premise of this question is just wacky.” After he and fellow panelist Bill Kristol subsequently debated the matter at length, Wallace declared, “Enough! Enough!” and added, “I’m tired of asking my wacky question.” As the segment concluded, he thanked the panel: Then, seemingly, still smarting somewhat, he glanced at Williams, threw up his hands, and said, “Sorry I asked a wacky question.”*

Obama (Ba)Rocks Hillary

February 20, 2008

The black avatar of JFK cleaned the clock of the erstwhile inevitable Democratic nominee yesterday. Obama stunned Hillary as he took Wisconsin by 17 percentage points and Hawaii by 51 percentage points. Obama continued his running of the table with ten consecutive primary/caucus wins after Super Tuesday. He has closed the Texas race and continues to tighten the Ohio one. James Carville, Clinton friend extraordinaire and CNN pundit, said that Hillary has to win Texas and/or Ohio or the race is over. Bill Kristol of the NYT added that she must win both to continue. Surprisingly, Bill Clinton agreed in an appearance in TX. Hillary looks desperate as stories surface that her campaign is trying to not only woo superdelegates but Obama-pledged delegates. Will her March 4 firewalls in TX and OH go up in flames like her fellow New Yorker Rudy’s did in FL or will she be the Comeback Clinton II?
