Another Question Planted by Team Hillary?

In a telephone interview with Fox, Geoffrey Mitchell, 32, says he was approached by an operative for the Clinton campaign to ask a planted question about standing up to President Bush on Iraq war funding.

Cheering the efforts of Fox News is not something I find myself doing often.

Today around 1:28, they reported a story with the specific name of a Clinton Campaign operative trying and failing to plant a question back in March. When the Campaign was unable to make the plant, Sentator Clinton declined to take any questions at the event in question.

I don’t like being caustic. However, anyone who supports Clinton deserves exactly what they get, unless I suppose she ends up running against Rudy, where one can argue she is the lesser of two evils.
