Do you suck up to Republicans with that mouth?
To set this up, you first have to read Hindrocket’s latest on 8+ inches and rising:
The stupidity of these people, as well as their malice, is mind-boggling. Can anyone discern what this guy, and the dozens if not hundreds of Democrats who have sent more or less identical emails, are talking about? Why are liberals obsessed with the fact that Jeff Gannon was once a gay escort? Beats me. Why does this character think that as conservatives, we are duty-bound to hate gay escorts? Beats me. We’ve done close to 10,000 posts on this site, and I doubt that we’ve ever mentioned gay escorts one way or another. Would I want my son to be one? No. Do I think that having once been a gay escort should disqualify Jeff Gannon from becoming a reporter, or entering any other occupation? No. Why do liberals find this so hard to understand? And how on God’s green earth does this make us “hypocrites”?
Of course, what we’ve criticized the left-wing blogs for is posting nude photographs of Gannon. How does the twisted “logic” manifested by these emailers justify that contemptible practice? Once again: beats me. The only conclusion I can come to is that a great many liberals are so consumed by hate that they have gone stark raving mad.
That’s the public stance.
Here’s the private stance to one of those bull-goose looneys who had the audacity to email the Time Magazine Bloggers of the Year:
MN Politics Guru sent Mr. Hinderaker a note questioning a post he did about “Jeff Gannon.” Hinderaker’s reply was a model of civility:
You dumb shit, he didn’t get access using a fake name, he used his real name. You lefties’ concern for White House security is really touching, but you know what, you stupid asshole, I think the Secret Service has it covered. Go crawl back into your hole, you stupid left-wing shithead. And don’t bother us anymore. You have to have an IQ over 50 to correspond with us. You don’t qualify, you stupid shit.
Do they teach you how to write so eloquently at Harvard? Clearly, I need to take lessons.
I’ve read MN Politics Guru email to Der Rocket and it wasn’t anything that I would find offensive (but then , you know me) and so I asked the Guru to post the originating email on their blog. Hopefully you will find it here soon.
Ward Deacon? I think you need to have a little talk with the Beaver Rocket.
Thanks to Mark for the original heads-up.
Added: MN Politics Guru has the email up.
