On Inside Politics today, Bill Schneider did an Oscar round up and said:

SCHNEIDER: The head of the Motion Picture Academy provide a moment that red state viewers, all Americans, in fact, can connect with it.

FRANK PERSON, PRESIDENT AMPAS: We dedicate the 77th Academy Awards services to the men and women in the armed services where are they serve with our gratitude forever for the sacrifices that they have made....

By saying that a dedication to the troops is only a red state issue (even though he corrected himself) was really a shot to all democrats that we couldn't possibly support our troops and live in a blue state. The CNN censors should have done a "Robin WIlliams" on him.

Can you help us out?
