Tony Perkins and Closely Held Personal Beliefs
Tony Perkins got the short shrift on Fox News' Rivera at Large tonight. Megyn Kendall was guest hosting for Geraldo and she had two guests, law professor Marci Hamilton and Family Research Council's Tony Perkins. Perkins was outside the Kentucky church where the Justice Sunday broadcast was televised. He got one less chance to talk than Marci, and Marci got the last word. At the very end, Perkins tried to break in but couldn't. Just as he was about to chime in, Megyn said, "Sorry, Tony, have to wrap it up." I'm sure it wasn't intentional, it was probably a hard break or time was just up, but still, Perkins was not pleased.
When he did get a chance to speak earlier in the segment, Perkins said that Sen. Harry Reid and Democrats were bringing faith into the judicial nominations issue by talking about their "closely held personal beliefs." He repeated that phrase three or four times, it was clearly his "talking point." Marci made short shrift of it and her last sentence was that the American people aren't buying it and Frist is making a mistake. And then time was up so Mr. Perkins couldn't repeat his talking point.
