CNN Debate: Not Just a Couple Plants– But a Bumper Crop!

(Updated and Bumped)
CNN offered a basket full of Democratic Plants for the holidays…

That basket is starting to fill up fast… and that’s without the CAIR plant.

So… Was the fact that former Democratic intern Ted Faturos asked about corn subsidies a clue that he was a CNN plant?

FOX News reported:

It turns out Kerr wasn’t the only Democratic supporter asking questions. Ted Faturos, 20, a student at University of California, San Diego, asked a question about corn subsidies. It turns out the urban studies and planning major also worked as an intern for Democratic Rep. Jane Harman. John Hess, Harman’s chief of staff, issued a statement Thursday saying Faturos is no longer affiliated with the office.

“Ted Faturos was a high school intern in our district office for the summer of 2004 only and has had no connection to the office or contact with the congresswoman since,” Hess said.

Hat Tip to Suzie who has more on the plants.
Here’s the former Harman intern:

After all, what’s a Republican debate without a gaggle of democratic operatives asking the questions?

Jason Coleman has another Bush-hating John Edwards supporter who aspires to write TV in California… He ought to fit right in.

UPDATE: (Friday) Michelle Malkin writes on CNN’s own ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy today.

Glenn Reynolds notes how almost one third of the questions during the CNN debate came from democratic operatives.
