So much for calling you a "RINO" like I have seen on this forum. I want to share with you an email that I received this morning from a very good friend of mine who wrote Fox News about their political coverage of malcontents among conservatives:

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,109552,00.html

This is the small, noisy extremist fringe, a corrolary to
the Kucinich folks in the Democrat Party.

To pretend that these folks represent anything unusual is
for FoxNews to be used by their spinmeisters to manufacture
a story that benefits their fundraising and that feeds the
Democrat hate-machine.

These are the folks who supported Pat Buchanan's ranting
attacks on former President Bush and the GOP, and of ex-NH
US Senator Bob Smith's self-righteous departure from the
GOP and his Quioxic run for the Presidency.

Most of these grumbling-campaigns are sponsored and fed
by a Buchanan, Perot, or Smith whose ego compells them to
seek power no matter the cost to the GOP, the nation, or
the truth.

How about more attention to the flood of hate ads from
George Soros and his ethically-challenged cohorts on the
left. The Nazi-like propaganda method "tell a lie long
enough and loud enough and eventually people will believe
it" is too obvious to be ignored.

Why is it that the rich manipulators on the Democrat side
get a pass while anyone who gives more than a few hundred
dollars to the GOP is labeled an illegitimate interloper
and an evil special interest?

A little balance and more completely researched reporting,
please?

Great email. Sadly, here on FR the naysayers are represented way beyond their true proportions.

The list, the compilation, the email to FOX.

All worth keeping. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Thanks for the ping, PKM! Following is my 'favorite' part of the letter you posted. 

"How about more attention to the flood of hate ads from
George Soros and his ethically-challenged cohorts on the
left. The Nazi-like propaganda method "tell a lie long
enough and loud enough and eventually people will believe
it"
is too obvious to be ignored."

President Bush has been attacked in the most vicious manner with advertising, internet sites, speeches by candidates, candidate debates, minions of the candidates, TV pundits and 'journalists' for months.  

In addition to the substantial list of accomplishments posted by Southack and Wolfstar, President Bush has had to try to ferret out and eliminate 'land mines' left for him by the previous administration.   Last week the excited announcements came, "Poll numbers down!", "Dean could beat him!", "Kerry could beat him!",  well, keep up the incessant drumbeat of lies and the dogcatcher could beat him.

The strength of character, control and resolve this man has is amazing.  The response of most people to these assaults would inevitably be a familiar country song, "Take This Job and Shove It!".  I'm grateful that President Bush has the sense of commitment to seek to continue in the office.

I have noticed that the democrats say the republicans and the president have special interest groups. What about the democrats special interest groups--NOW, NARAL, SIERRA CLUB, NAACP, Unions, Planned Parenthood, trial lawyers, rich multimillionaires and the Holly wood elite. I truly believe that the republicans should speak in the same "tongues" as the democrats and refer to these groups as special interest groups.
