AP says it’s a “pathetic, virtuoso exercise in milquetoast jackassery,” and of course he’s correct. But for my money Ace is the one who gets the ball across the goal line: Dirty Harry Reid is a “cocksucker.” And I mean one of Lovelaceian proportions, too. Also a “rotten shitheel.”
If this doesn’t serve to highlight the difference between us and them, I don’t know what will. As bad as the Rethugs are sometimes, I can’t remember ever in my life seeing such a wholly disgraceful exercise in suck-butt partisan dishonesty, opportunism, and all-around knavery. What an utter, utter creep Reid is. How anybody can objectively observe today’s Demo-rats in all their vile, shameless infamy and stand up and publicly admit to being on their side is beyond me.
I mean, Jesus H. Christ.
Update! Somewhat related:
If Limbaugh was talking about Corliss, he and his cronies must have dug up everything Corliss had ever written for the purposes of intimidation. Gangster stuff. And so reflective of our crazy culture. A blowhard can boast to millions of listeners about blackmailing a member of the press, and someone who once admitted to just doin’ what comes naturally cowers under the sheets.
Cry me a river, cupcake. Pot, kettle, etc. That kvetching rings awful hollow in the light of this, and other similar tactics used by you Thought Police officers over the years. Go ye and fuck yourself.
Credit Where It’s (Not) Due Update! The balls-out chutzpah of these loathsome scoundrels simply beggars belief:
Today, Reid was more conciliatory to Limbaugh and whoever is paying for the letter. Though he said on the Senate floor that as he had watched the bidding throughout the week, he never thought it would get to $2 million.
“Now, everyone knows that Rush Limbaugh and I don’t agree on everything in life and maybe that is kind of an understatement,” Reid said.
“But without qualification Mark May, the owner of the network that has Rush Limbaugh, and Rush Limbaugh should know that this letter that they’re auctioning is going to be something that raises money for a worthwhile cause. I don’t know what we could do more important than helping to ensure that children of our fallen soldiers and police officers who have fallen in the line of duty have the opportunity for their children to have a good education,” he said.
The bidding ends at 1:00p.m. No mater what, Democrats are going to make a ton of money for a charity off their political vitriol.
Umm, excuse moi, you filthy, wretched, propagandizing piece of weasel dung, but last I looked that “ton of money” was being put up exclusively and entirely by two REPUBLICANS, two REICH-WING CHICKENHAWK FASCIST WINGNUTS. And last I looked, despite being cordially invited to participate in a more meaningful way than merely barging in and trying to steal credit they in no way whatever deserve, NOT ONE GOD DAMNED DEMO-RAT has ponied up ONE RED FUCKING CENT.
Even when Limbaugh and his most generous co-donor hand them a means of supporting the troops on a silver platter, these asswarts can’t bring themselves to do it. Instead of seizing the opportunity presented them by the happy chance of a more noble response than their lying skullduggery deserved, they can only manage to skulk mendaciously in the noisome shadows they always hide in, trying to swipe the plaudits earned by far better men and women than they’ll ever be.
Gall so powerful it could raise a blister on a galvanized pot, that’s what. Once more, with feeling, for the Dems’ Old Media remoras, which obloquy this ABC propagandist has so unreservedly earned: ask yourselves why we hate you.
