Longtime readers know the story: In 2009, after Alyssa Milano re-Tweeted a column by Mickey Kaus, I determined to get mine, too:
Some of my friends say that Alyssa is a dyed-in-the-wool liberal. . . . Surely, however, she would not allow mere politics to prejudice her Twitter habits.
It took 11 months (and the constant incitement of friends), but finally in September 2010, came the Tweet Heard ‘Round the World:
See? Politics isn’t everything. And yet this morning, when it was announced Alyssa Milano was scheduled to appear on “Fox & Friends,” some of her liberal fans were less than . . . bipartisan:
@rsmccain Damn shame. I wouldn't be caught dead watching Fox "News."

Why do people have to be like that? I’m glad conservatives aren’t intolerant like that. Yes, Alyssa Milano is a liberal, but she’s just a regular liberal, not a shrill Bill Maher/Janeane Garofalo obnoxious partisan Hollywood hatemonger. She’s not Sean Penn or Michael Moore or some other America-hating commie.
And did I mention she RT’d me? With 2.5 million followers?
Also, she’s better-looking than Michael Moore. A uniter, not a divider.
UPDATE: More anti-Fox spew from liberals:

This is amusing in several ways. I’m kind of notorious as the conservative guy who Watches MSNBC, So You Don’t Have To™ and lately, MSNBC has been the pro-war channel — “We must bomb Syria! Now!” — and these Fox-haters were all anti-war back when it was important for liberals to hate war. Principles? Standards? They got none.
