As renewed calls come from our very own Junior Senator Debbie Stabenow to enforce what is known as the fairness doctrine, I am digging the trenches for our stand on free speech. Michigan’s senator Stabenow is just a political tool. Debbie Stabenow hasn’t had an original thought in the years she has “served” this state in the political capacity of senator, state senator, representative and state rep. Her entire political career has been THAT… merely a career.
We all seek job security, but she has contributed NOTHING outside of the public life she has enjoyed. Debbie Stabenow has only had publicly PAID FOR employment, beginning while she was in graduate school. Her entire motivation has been the pursuit of public office and early in her political career even tried for the Governor’s seat. In 2003, Stabenow married Tom Athans, who was/is the executive vice president of Air America? (yeah.. also the same guy who was NOT prosecuted for his 2008 hooker adventure, while the hooker was..)
And now she is actively rent seeking through her advocating of the fairness doctrine. The implementation of which “levels” the playing field for the failing liberal radio networks like those her husband is actively earning an income from. The very same networks which cannot find a real market audience that supports its radical left agenda enough to be profitable.
The Hollywood types such as Barbara Streisand seem to take an interest in Michigan’s welfare, with a consistent support of Stabenow and Levin both. In fact Stabenow raked in $671,727 for her 2006 campaign cycle from the great state of California all by itself. California interests didn’t worry as much about Carl Levin and gave him a paltry $307,185 for his recent round.They Know Carl, with his 30 years is not at risk, but Debbie is.
Why? Stabenow is a tool. This isnt by itself an insult to the lifelong politician, but it speaks to her worth to those who have been rubbing their hands waiting for payback for McCarthy’s “communist hunts” several decades ago. She is a tool of the elite leftists with agendas from “gay rights” to socialist green efforts. She isn’t recognized as the brightest bulb in the senate, and they know they can mold her will to meet their own, yet need to keep her propped up, because she couldn’t do it without their help. And she doesn’t care because its a job with benefits.
Why am I saying all of this?
Because I can. At least right now I can offer my opinion. But if Debbie Stabenow’s handlers get their way, and after the conservative radio is silenced, I, and my conservative blogging friends will be next.
