The Corner

Lanny Davis & Father Coughlin

Just because it’s my thing. Davis writes:

So I can understand why the Obama White House would be angry at Fox News Channel’s evening shows. Some of the hosts, such as Glenn Beck, and the guests attack the president personally at times, using over-the-top venom reminiscent of 1930s right-wing radio commentator, Father Charles Coughlin, who accused President Franklin D. Roosevelt and the New Deal of being socialist or worse. (Sound familiar?)

Yes, well. Except Coughlin wanted FDR to be more socialist, not less. But Lanny’s heart’s in the right place.
