Why Not “Test Drive” the Fairness Doctrine At the Oscars?
By: John Lillpop
With liberal heavy weights like former President Bill Clinton and Shreeker of the House Nancy Pelosi clamoring for a return to the Fairness Doctrine, perhaps we who dwell on the right wing side of the universe should open our tiny minds, just a smidgen, to the concept?
After all, fairness is all about balance and the absence of bias, right?
That being the case, why not “test drive” this fairness notion during a major public event where narrow-minded and ill informed folk are known to congregate?
Why not impose a “Fairness Doctrine” on the Academy Awards show scheduled for this Sunday evening in Hollywood?
Just as an experiment to see how it works out, mind you.
With luminaries like Sean Penn, Brad Pitt, and Angelina Jolie in the running for Oscars, there are bound to be several liberal outbursts to 1) Thank goodness for the arrival of the New Age Messiah, Barack Obama, and or 2) Thank goodness for deliverance from former President George W. Bush, a man of low degree with a drink problem.
So when, say, Sean Penn dedicates his Oscar to the memory of Harvey Milk and pronounces the planet “saved” by the grace of BHO, once the wild applause and cheering subside, the stage and microphone would be turned over to Mel Gibson and Clint Eastwood.
These stalwart conservatives would proceed to remind Hollywood and the world that, in just over 30 days in office, Barack Hussein Obama has:
*Escalated the war in Afghanistan with a “surge” of young Americans sent in harm’s way;
*Signed, without reading, an 1,100 page bill that will drown future generations in red ink, but which includes funding for liberal programs that will do nothing to create jobs or stimulate the economy;
*Decided to close GITMO and reverse other anti-terrorist measures, thereby making America more vulnerable to terrorist attacks;
*Nominated tax cheats and others suspected of felonies to important cabinet posts;
*Promoted the official decline of America into the abyss of Marxism.
And the winner for the most egregious failure by the Obama administration after 30+ days is:
Osama bin Laden is still on the loose!
