My “favorite paragraph of the week” award has to go to columnist Camille Paglia, who said this about The Breck Girl John Edwards pulling out of a debate on Fox News:

Hence my unhappy surprise when Edwards, who has an attractively comprehensive social policy and strong oratorical skills, was the first to pull out of the scheduled August debate moderated by Fox News.

What is this morbid obsession that liberals have with Fox? It’s as if Democrats, pampered and spoiled by so many decades of the mainstream media trumpeting the liberal agenda, are so shaky in their convictions that they cannot risk an encounter with opposing views.

Democrats have ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, the New York Times, Newsweek, Time and 98 percent of American humanities professors to do their bidding. But no, that’s not enough — every spark of dissent has to be extinguished with buckets of bile.

Aside from Paglia’s view that Edwards’ social policy is “attractively comprehensive” (so was Ted Bundy, according to some women) the absurdity of the Fox News paranoia from the left is well stated.

Paglia’s entire column is here.

    I linked to this post, just FYI.
    You don’t have trackbacks, correct?

    I noticed that and commented on your blog. Thanks!

    No trackbacks yet… but I’m working on getting some stuff on here. I might switch comments to haloscan as well when I get a chance. Also, I think some people are having trouble commenting, so that should help.
