Kirsten Powers Is An Airhead

Fox viewers voted that they wanted the topic of Fox's Friday Lightning Round to be about Operation Fast and Furious. The panelists included Jonah Goldberg from the National Review, Democrat political analyst Kristen Power, and syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer. It was moderated by Bret Baier.

Goldberg, Baier, and Krauthammer made some good points. Goldberg pointed out that if the economy wasn't so much in the tank and the unemployment rate at 9.2% this would be getting a lot more press. Krauthammer opined that he thought this will continue on into the fall and become an "Autumn Scandal" as well as a summer scandal. Baier continued to bring up the Tampa Field Division and their involvement in walking guns to MS-13 in Honduras.

FoxNews has a lot of attractive and smart blondes on their network. Kirsten Powers is not one of them. I realize that Kirsten Powers' main role for Fox is to spout the official Democrat Party line. That said, she comes across like an airhead whose sole goal was to deflect attention from Eric Holder and try to make the story about Rep. Darrell Issa. She was totally unbelievable and displayed incredible ignorance about the whole scandal. I guess I should be happy because it showed just how weak the arguments being put out by the White House and the Democrat Party really are.

  1. It would be nice for Kirsten Powers to reiterate that Issa has denied prior knowledge of Gunrunner and that the Washington Post story was compiled from "anonymous sources." Hardly credible, I do believe that Issa was briefed but I think it was superficially (without specifics). Regardless, Powers screwed the pooch on this badly, and should have at least mentioned that Issa contradicts this account.
