Jim Lehrer, on his NewsHour program on PBS on Friday night, ridiculed John Kerry for calling for filibuster from "the ski slopes." Click the link above for the entire transcript. Liberal Mark Shields and conservative columnist David Brooks both joined Lehrer for some Kerry bashing.
This exchange is making left-wing radicals furious, who are now calling Mark Shields a "Republican stooge" and a "Fox News Democrat." One leftist website had this to say to Mark Shields, long time CNN analyst:
"This is the most despicable performance in your long career of pretending to be a Democrat. If you love George Bush with such devotion, then go register as a Republican today. Better yet, pick up a gun and go fight his disastrous war in Iraq. And give your "Democratic" spot on PBS to a REAL Democrat - someone with the cojones to stand up to the Emperor Without Clothes and his mouthpiece, Jim Lehrer!"

When I arrived at the university studio for the televised trans-Atlantic debate with George Soros, the financier, and other representatives of the global elite gathered in Davos, Switzerland, a visibly shaken Florian Rochat of the Swiss delegation was waiting for me.
Swiss are known for being impassive, but Florian was visibly shaken. "They are arresting protestors in Davos and other places in Switzerland," he told me. "Theyre killing democracy in our country. Our friends there are asking you to support them in calling for the shutting down of the World Economic Forum."
Just a bunch of Commies worshipping at the alter of $oro$.

NPR is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Democratic Party. Any remarks by Shields/Lehrer et al should be cleared by the Party leadership before being aired.
Shields and Lehrer should either step down or else apologise for abusing their microphone. And then step down. They've shown themselves to be unreliable spokesmen for the Party.
If what was said was an attack, a fleas sneeze is a hurricane.
Libs don't tolerate anyone breaking out of lockstep even for a second. For a bunch who prides themselves on being "freethinkers" they sure hate people thinking freely.
More proof that JFK hasn't got a clue as to how he might be perceived by those outside of D.C.
You'd think his handlers might know better, however, guessing this reaction might come about.
Thin-skinned bunch, aren't they! Geez!
That's their favorite line. Yep, the "champions" of the First Amendment say you must go fight in Iraq to have an opinion they disagree with.
And they've started using it in debates that have nothing to do with the Iraq War.
I always thought Kerry looked like he was on embalming fluid. It hasn't reduced his presidential ambitions, however.
Shields and Lehrer are Republican stooges... Heh, heh, heh....
you know skerry was in vietnam
Hey stupid Dems, this is how you make new Republican converts by bashing people like Lehrer and Shields for offering constructive criticism. And that's why you dumb dumbs never learn because you usual don't want to acknowledge your faults. Speaking as a former DEM myself.
As long as they keep ex-communicating the only Dems with a lick of sense, we will keep rejoicing...
Kerry calling for a filibuster from the ski slopes---
hilarious---but just a variation on the Lifestyle of
the Linousine Liberal.
