Which Democrats Believe Terrorists Can be Appeased?
On yesterday’s FOX News Sunday, host Chris Wallace asked a question of Senator Elizabeth Dole that I asked no one in particular earlier in the week: “Senator Dole, which Democrats, and I’d like you to name them, which Democrats running for the Senate this year believe the terrorists can be appeased?” Her answer was long but did not name any Democrats, running for the Senate or otherwise, who believe the terrorists can be appeased.

Now, in fairness, I don’t think that Dole has ever made this allegation; that was Don Rumsfeld. Perhaps the question would have more appropriately been directed at him. Still, she is chairing the Republican re-election effort on the Senate side and should be prepared to defend the official talking points–or be ready to distance herself from them.
