Kirsten Powers was absolutely magnificent discussing gun control on Fox News Sunday today - and a picture perfect example for spineless Democrats - one of whom, former Senator Evan Bayh, was sitting at the table with her. First, she forcefully argued that assault weapons make mass casualties more likely, then she noted that police departments agree with her and when host Chris Wallace tried to argue that Democrats are not doing much on behalf of gun control, she shot back that the NRA and similar organizations "own the Republicans and the Democrats cower in fear.” Even worse for gun-rights advocate Liz Cheney, her fellow conservative, Bill Kristol agreed with Powers.
I'll try to get the video of the entire discussion showing Bayh's timid response that went before Powers had a chance to speak. But the bemused expression on his face and lack of comment on Powers' remarks speaks to exactly the kind of cowardice she referenced.
As I wrote not long ago in another example of Powers speaking truth to power (no pun intended): I've had my criticisms of Powers... But I've got to say this about her: she's got the courage of her convictions and the guts to stand up for them. There are a lot of other Fox News Democrats who could stand to learn from her.
Let's hope some of them were watching today.
A guy walks into the theater, wearing what looks like a batman outfit. Many people thought that he was somehow part of the show. But he immediately fires off tear gas canisters. There was no time for anyone to react at that point. And now there’s tear gas so it’s almost impossible to see the guy. Who would those wannabe macho males have shot? How many more innocent lives would have been lost?
