Polls Closing in the East

Schumer is counting his chickens before they're hatched:

Asked if he is a supporter of telling radio stations what content they should have, Schumer used the fair and balanced line, claiming that critics of the Fairness Doctrine are being inconsistent.

“The very same people who don’t want the Fairness Doctrine want the FCC [Federal Communications Commission] to limit pornography on the air. I am for that… But you can’t say government hands off in one area to a commercial enterprise but you are allowed to intervene in another. That’s not consistent.”

Course, we regulate the sale of alcoholic beverages. We dictate where and to whom it can be sold, so naturally we must regulate Orangina as well. It's a drink, right? We must be consistent.

What a thing to say just before the election. I'll tell you what, redistributing the wealth, instituting the fairness doctrine, manipulating energy prices into the "skyrocket" range: If the Democrats take complete control, it will be because the entire nation has come down with attention deficit disorder.

Hey, you guys out west: ignore the exit polls and VOTE
