Riddle Me This

How many Republican Plants were there at the last Democratic debate?

And, before you say Oh, it's no big deal, here's how that exchange gets offered and answered at Michelle Malkin's site :

Being a Democrat does not make one a “plant.” I support Hillary Clinton. Does that not mean I don’t deserve the chance to ask the Republican candidates a question?

Yup, that’s exactly what it means. It’s called a primary which is only for members of the party. And these Dem plants took away valuable question time from those that actually have a stake in the voting. You get to question the candidate the party chooses to run for President. Until then, it’s not your issue unless you switch parties.

So, to sum up, so far there were four "plants" last night:

1) Abortion questioner is declared Edwards supporter
2) Log Cabin Republican questioner is declared Obama supporter;
3) Lead toy questioner is a prominent union activist for the Edwards-endorsing United Steelworkers
4) Retired Brig General/gays in the military is Lobbyist/Hillary-Kerry supporter.

The biggest irony of all this, was that the Republicans agreed to go on CNN (Clinton News Network) while the Democrats refused to go on a Fox supported debate. What exactly did the Democrats fear, and how is that different from the treatment the Republicans got? Dishonest and despicable.
