Police Beating Demonstrators in Georgia's "Growing Democracy."

In a weak moment, I made the mistake of turning on Fox News today. A jingoistic Fox reporter asked Ralph Peters, an equally jingoistic guest, about the Georgia crisis.

Peters called for massive sanctions against Russia. The obliging reporter egged him on by volunteering that Georgia had a "growing democracy." Perhaps she missed this revealing footage from 2007 showing police in that country beating up demonstrators to enforce martial law.
