When will the progressives learn that their newfound love of smear tactics have only hurt the party? I may have had severe disagreements with Larry Johnson and the No Quarter crew, but I can certainly agree with Johnson's anger over the latest lies and rumors surrounding Sarah Palin.
Progs are spreading the ridiculous lie that Sarah Palin's youngest child -- the one with Down's syndrome -- is actually the offspring of Palin's oldest daughter, Bristol. Evidence? None.
This is a smear, pure and simple -- and naturally, Daily Kos has provided one-stop shopping for all your smear-mongering needs.
Let's demonstrate how desperate the smear merchants have become. The comments on this
Reddit page display the work of an armchair detective who found the MySpace page of a young Alaskan lad who declared his love for Bristol. We should not find this declaration surprising -- she's very pretty. But in the eyes of our armchair Sherlock...
So. We have what appears to be the father...
That's an Olympian
Then, of course, we get the note of false probity:
This entire issue is not about the baby but honesty and judgment of a woman who could become President...
Sarah Palin's honesty is not to be assailed by a bunch of deception-addicted progs.
As readers know, I am careful to describe my politics as "liberal," not progressive. What's the difference?ALL PROGRESSIVES LIE. ALL.
For the lowest of the low, consider this "progressive" comment, from someone who describes herself as a "journalist":
Down Syndrome, my ass.
I prefer the more accurate term, “drunken teenage mother fetal alcohol syndrome.”
A commenter here
suggests that Down's syndrome was a cover for the fact that Sarah took an Eskimo for a lover.
And back here
, we have this gem -- from an Obama supporter:
Drag that 16 year old hussy out into the shining light of the moral majority.
The Palin campaign was forced to disclose that Bristol is five months pregnant. Not long ago, liberals would be the first to argue that a teenaged pregnancy was the business of exactly no-one outside the families involved. Now we have the progressive HinesSight
proudly displaying its Prussian blue nose:
PALIN'S FORNICATING, UNWED DAUGHTER IS PREGNANT
So next time you see Juno
, just use this handy moral calculator: If Juno's parents are Democrats, then her pregnancy is not to be judged by the likes of you; her body is her
business. If Juno's parents are Republicans, then she is a tramp, a whore, and deserving of public humiliation in the stockade.
(Actually, Juno comes from a mixed political family. J. Jonah Jameson is a Republican, but CJ once worked for a Democratic president.)
I've never seen such ugliness. I am that
close to advising the PUMAs to vote not only for McCain but for every downticket Republican. The Democratic party does not deserve any power until the consummately emetic Markos Moulitsas and his crew of disgusting prog-monsters have been kicked out
: I think it is telling that Sullivan passes for a prog these days. Sullivan bought into the "Bristol's child" smear, and Larry Johnson retorted with a classic challenge to a mano-a-mano fight.
Sully, if you're scared of a guy with CIA training, consider placing your nose within punching range of yours truly. Even in my present state of chubbification (I never met a lasagna I didn't like), I think I can break your spine, if you have one. And my hell-hound Bella will devour
your damned beagles.
