    Teddy Turner, son of billionaire media mogul Ted Turner and Republican candidate for Congress, said his father’s marriage to Jane Fonda prompted his major left turn.

    “I was raised in a different time at the Turner household … a very conservative household with capitalism and all of that kind of stuff,” the younger Turner told Newsmax TV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show.”

    Teddy Turner is running for Congress in South Carolina, where he faces former Gov. Mark Sanford in a Republican primary. His platform includes opposition to taxes and same-sex marriage and he is a global warming skeptic – all positions his father does not share.

    The few times I have seen Ted interviewed didn't strike me as serious interviews. He comes across as a contrarian - someone who cuts across whatever grain he can in order to make himself appear smarter than everyone else.

    Jane, too.

    You are much more gracious than I am in how you refer to her.

    I am hoping she will believe that I have forgiven her and wander into bitch slapping range.

    Aren't Ted and Jane divorced? I thought they got divorced a while ago, which would make their marriage somewhat short-termed. I could be wrong, though, about the divorce.



    I think Ted Turner became a liberal all on his own, because if I'm right and they are divorced, he stayed a liberal after Jane left.

    Four years of college tends to turn kids more liberal, not just because they are associating with a liberal boy or girlfriend, but because they are immersed in a liberal culture. Jane Fonda is an uber-liberal who traveled in leftist circles and continually exposed Turner to leftist elites in Hollywood. He probably didn't have much in the way of core convictions prior to that, and constant immersion seems to have embedded the left's premises in him.
