Another CNN “Questioner” Exposed

Remember last week’s CNN You Tube Republican presidential candidates’ debate?

Are you keeping count of the “questioners” CNN selected who have connections to the Democrats and/or interest groups the Dems appeal to?

If you are, add Yasmin to your list.

Yasmin was the Muslim woman wearing a head-scarf who identified herself as “hailing from Huntsville, Alabama.”

Yasmin said from time she’d spent in the Middle East, she realized “just how much damage the Iraq War and the perception of invasion has done to America.”

She wanted to know what the candidates would do about her set-up question, only neither Yasmin nor CNN ID’ed her question as a set-up.

Now, would you be surprised to learn that Alabama’s own Yasmin is a former CAIR intern?

Michelle Malkin has more, including a clip of Yasmin’s “question” and former Mayor Guiliani’s and Senator McCain’s responses.

I hope you take a look here. Click on Guiliani and the clip starts almost immediately.

It’s well worth a look. Both Guiliani and McCain speak up for what’s right.

Question: Do CNN and their Dem allies have more plants than New York’s Botanical Gardens, or is that just my imagination?

I reported. You decide.

Is Grover Norquist, who personally asked a question, count as a shill by the same logic?

just - I think everyone knows who Grover is. If Bill Clinton had shown up he wouldn't have been a shill either.

Shill: a person who publicizes or praises something or someone for reasons of self-interest, personal profit, or friendship or loyalty.

But I think a lying political activist posing as an innocent Muslim *is* actually a random CNN viewer.

Lots of people don't know who Grover Norquist is, or his group, Americans for Tax Reform. He was not identified as a lobbyist who worked with Jack Abramoff, now was he? Then people would have known who he was within the Washington establishment.

From Wikipedia:

Jack Abramoff pled guilty to conspiracy to corrupt public officials, mail fraud and tax evasion on January 3, 2006. According to an investigative report on Abramoff's lobbying released in June 2006 by the Senate Indian Affairs Committee, Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) served as a "conduit" for funds that flowed from Abramoff's clients to surreptitiously finance grass-roots lobbying campaigns. A second group Norquist was involved with, the Council of Republicans for Environmental Advocacy, received about $500,000 in Abramoff client funds.

Just - Lots of people don't know if WWII was before the Civil War. I'm not talking about them.

You knew who Grover was, I knew who he was, the candidates knew who he was, the announcers knew who he was, etc.

You can aim for moral equivalence all you want, but Grover isn't a shill in the same sense that Jasmine and the others are/were.
