Rupert Murdoch's Most Admirable Decision?

This is an easy one for me. It was when he (through his paper, The New York Post) endorsed Ed Koch over the spongy incumbent, Abe Beame, and the equally unappealing Bella Abzug in the 1977 Democratic primary for Mayor of New York. Yes, it was kind of an obvious no-brainer but kudos still.

There's others reasons to be thankful for Murdoch: Giving us the Fox TV Network: Yes, Simpsons! And they generously gave Michael Moore a left-wing news/stunt "magazine" variety show beyond all ratings possibilities.

And I must thank him for Fox News. Because why not have a right-leaning TV news organization when all the others are to the left. But I know there are those who want it gone: those who don't understand the basic idea of freedom of the press/speech, and want the only voices in the public space to be those they agree with.

For the record, whether or not I agree with their content, I support the broadcasting/distribution of Fox News... and CNN, CBS, NBC (various forms), "Coast to Coast", Limbaugh, Hightower, BBC and other foreign sources allowed in, ABC, Democracy Now, Pacific Radio, and just about all of them. I am not afraid, and we have more to fear from those who would silence any of these than we do from any of the news these stations/etc present.

Well,it seems we have found the female Joe Biden....you know someone who opens mouth and inserts foot.

Its Wendy Davis...yes that Wendy Davis,the Texas state senator now running for governor against State Attorney General Greg Abbott.

Ms.Davis became the democratic darling last year when she filibustered an anti-abortion bill for 11 hours....it was good theater but really accomplished nothing.Ms.Davis is pro-abortion...up to and including the day before full term birth it must be added.

Well,it seems over the years Ms.Davis has touted herself as a poor single mom,living in a mobile home who put herself through law school and became successful.As a Dallas newspaper reported last week her story is partially true but highly embellished.Seems she actually married a rich lawyer who paid for her Harvard Law degree and cared for her two kids while she was in school.She later divorced the guy.

Here's where she becomes the female Biden....Ms.Davis blamed the newspapers story on her opponent Greg Abbott and yesterday Tweeted "Greg Abbott has never walked a mile in my shoes."......Seeing that Greg Abbott is a paraplegic confined to a wheelchair I'm sure that statement is true.

And oh yea......Wendy Davis is blonde.....figures....
