Gibson radio show producer: Edwards 'whored his wife's cancer as a fundraising gimmick'

This is bottom-feeder disgusting stuff. Look at this exchange between Fox News shill John Gibson and his exec producer “Angry Rich”. What class. (Media Matters):

GIBSON: Our John Gibson program fraud alert today focuses on the biggest fraud running for president, and that takes some doing. We’re talking about the Breck Girl, Silky, the former senator from North Carolina, the baron of a 28,000-square-foot manse, the protector of the poor while ensconced on a pillow of 100 million dollars.

ANGRY RICH: A man who whored his wife’s cancer as a fundraising gimmick.

This is how they appeal to the Base. The right wing cannot sell its ideas (and certainly not its values, given the endless string of sexual hypocrites), so they just get in the gutter and fling excrement like this on the air.

The larger issue here is the misogyny of the Right — the continual attacks on John Edwards, the whole feminizing-as-an-insult routine says a lot about their utter  contempt toward women.  They want to control their wombs, their sexuality, and their independence. In their book the best way to demean a political opponent is to feminize male candidates or gay-bait them (as they do with Hillary Clinton, since clearly the right is fixated on lesbian-baiting her).

John Gibson needs to be on a couch.
