FOX DEMANDS THAT LOTT DO THE SOUTHERN CRAWL | 2002-12-14

In order to be a good boy, every Southerner must grovel and sob and drool when segregation is mentioned. I call this the "Southern Crawl".

In order to be respectable, every Southerner must do the "Southern Crawl" and conservatives must be the first to demand that every Southerner do the Southern Crawl. If a Southerner doesn't do the Southern Crawl or a conservative does not demand the Southern Crawl, that Southerner or that conservative goes on the liberal Black List and is not allowed to comment in the public media.

No one but me ever mentions this, but we all know it. It's called Liberal Free Speech, which means free speech is only for liberals.

No conservative who wants to stay Respectable can complain about this rule.

So Fox commentators demand that Fox do more than just apologize for his statement about Strom. They want him to sob and drool and grovel and renounce his ideological errors in detail.
