Republic. I like the sound of the word. It means people can live free, talk free, go or come, buy or sell, be drunk or sober, however they choose. Some words can give you a feeling that makes your heart warm. Republic is one of those words. - John Wayne

Dusty Harry & Company Concerned About Disney's Bottom Line
by Cordeiro
ABC/Disney's Path to 9/11 has caused a near-panic on the part of former members of the Clinton (Sorry Excuse For) Administration. This panic has resulted in uncontrolled whining which at this moment is rising in pitch and shaking windows from Chappaqua to Little Rock.

The panic induced whining has now spread to the leadership of the Senate Jackass Caucus. Senators Dusty Harry, Dick Durbin, "Do Nothing" Debbie Stabenow, "Helmet Head" Byron Dorgan, and last but not least, the Junior Senator from New York, Chuck Shumer dispatched a letter to Disney's CEO Robert Iger. The letter begins with a veiled threat couched in a reminder of Disney's

free broadcast license predicated on the fundamental understanding of your principle obligation to act as a trustee of the public airwaves in serving the public interest. Nowhere is this public interest obligation more apparent than in the duty of broadcasters to serve the civic needs of a democracy by promoting an open and accurate discussion of political ideas and events.
After citing third hand media reports of the upcoming mini-series, the Senate Jackass Leadership ventures into territory previously unknown to liberals. They express concern about Disney's bottom line - in other words - profit.

Profit is an evil term to leftist liberals. Profit is to be shunned, taxed, and if all else fails, those who manage to make a post-tax profit are to be made to feel guilty for having done so.

You see, evidently The Path To 9/11 is going to run sans commercials. While on the surface this may seem to be a money losing deal for Disney, it also deprives leftists of any opportunity to demand boycotts of show sponsors. Dusty Harry and Company had this to say about Disney's plans to broadcast the show commercial free:

Finally, that Disney plans to air commercial-free a program that reportedly cost it $40 million to produce serves to add fuel to these concerns.
I'm making a note here for future reference. Senate Democrats have, for the first time that I'm aware of, expressed serious concerns about the bottom line of a major US corporate entity.

Memo to Robert Iger: There is but one response you can give Dusty Harry & Company. Their arrogance and obvious panic in response to this show cannot result in the show being pulled, edited, or otherwise modified to appease their misguided sensibilities. You must simply tell them to pound sand. Anything less would be capitulation.

Here endeth the lesson.

If, in fact, you are a "conservative", you wouldn't need to hide behind the "Anonymous" label and pimp my blog to make your point.

And, just so you know, I read Dean Barnett. I consider him to be an excellent blogger. Your quote from him was completely fabricated and thus your comment gets canned.

Go pimp someplace else.
