So last week, good news. This week, importantly defining news. The USA Today OnPolitics blog has announced that Fox has decided not to make its debates with the Republicans free.

This is now a defining moment. The RNC has not yet responded to either the call to free the debates, nor even the request to talk. And while three Dems have joined the call, the DNC and Hilary Clinton are also, so far, AWOL in this debate.

It is time to for these leaders to say something, one way or the other. Some of the best bloggers I’ve read are Republican. Does the RNC support them? And it has taken way too long for Senator Clinton to focus on this issue. Why?

Inquiring minds want to know. And more should ask that these questions get answered.

    Inquiring minds want to know.

    the “free culture” movement hitches its (creaky) wagon to leftist horses and then wonders why the right wing ignores it as it parades by? c’mon professor. in american politics both sides defines themselves by their opposition to the other. it is, like, so much easier than having ideas of your own.

    as for senator clinton, the reason for her silence is obvious: senator obama was first out on this. it makes little sense for her to occupy any other harness than the lead, so don’t expect to hear from her (unless you can come up with a large cash donation or have special expertise in the futures market.)
