Weird! Fox's favorite 'progressive Democrat' just seems to beat up on Dems: "TAMMY, TELL ME UNTRUE: Weird, isn’t it? Tammy Bruce said, two times each, that she was “progressive”—and a Big Democrat! She stressed that she was openly gay, and a Big Feminist to boot (see THE DAILY HOWLER, 12/16/03). But just as soon as she opened her mouth, she began praising Bush—and trashing Dems. Bill O’Reilly even had to fix her fake facts. No wonder our analysts were so kerflubbled as they watched this “progressive Democrat” in action."
look at Faux News' "experts". This seems to be the literal use of a strawman (strawchick, in this case) to further a political agenda.
'Gawrsh Billy O'Really, I'm a democrat and I think everything you say about them is spot on'.
