Repubs get equal time

Posted By on Fri, Oct 10, 2008 at 3:29 PM

I thought the Republicans didn't think much of the old fairness doctrine and all that. But let the other side get in a few words on TV and suddenly a little equal time sounds like a good idea to Dennis "What we need is another 9/11" Milligan, Arkansas's Republican Party chair.

An appearance by Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen on Channel 4 set him off. Read on.

Hey. I think they should put me on whenever they let Bill Vickery talk.


Earlier today Hollywood actors Mary Steenbergen and Ted Danson visited the set of KARK 4 Today to supposedly speak about get out the vote efforts in Arkansas and around the country.  What this interview quickly turned into was the typical McCain bashing symposium that Democrats are leaning on for leverage every day. 

Due to the one-sidedness of this interview KARK 4 Today has invited Republican Party of Arkansas Executive Director Karen Ray and me to speak on behalf of Senator McCain and Governor Palin.   Please tune in between 6:30 – 6:45 on Monday morning (October 13) and show your support of this effort and the McCain/Palin ticket!
