After first suspending reporter Joe Williams, Politico announced that inspired him with its editor in chief John Harris saying: “After some cordial discussions, Joe Williams and I mutually decided that the best step for him is to begin a transition to the next phase of his career”. The well read website took the step of firing Williams for his racist comments on MSNBC June 21 that included:
“It’s very interesting that he [Romney] does so many appearances on ‘Fox & Friends’ and it’s unscripted. It’s the only time they let Mitt off the leash, so to speak …. Romney is very, very comfortable, it seems, with people who are like him. That’s one of the reasons why he seems so stiff and awkward in some town hall settings, why he can’t relate to people other than that. But when he comes on ‘Fox & Friends,’ they’re like him. They’re white folks who are very much relaxed in their own company.”
In addition to his “white folks” comments above, some William’s Twitters were publicized that included taunting Romney for his wealth, accusing NASCAR of being racist, and a phallic joke that included Ann Romney.
It is amazing that people on the Left refuse to acknowledge that most of the mainstream and published media are so blatantly biased towards Progressive causes. This bias remained underground for decades. With the new millennia and especially since the election of Barack Obama, the bias has come out of the closet. With the failure of Obama policies and his declining poll numbers, some Leftist reporters are becoming unhinged to the point where even their Leftist superiors can no longer tolerate their bias.

Ann Coulter, a darling of the politically Right, recently showed inconsistency to her often spoken moral outrage. Last week, appearing on Sean Hannity’s show, Hannity rightfully took radical Leftist Bill Maher to task for vulgar, sexist and bigoted comments that he made, video included below. That led to Coulter responding by saying of Meyer: “I obviously don’t believe in his politics, I like him, he’s a true and loyal friend, he always has been,” and finally added: “he bought me dinner, so I’m not going to say anything bad about it… I’m easy. I’m a cheap date.”
Selective morality is but a notch above no morality. Befriending those with different political views is entirely appropriate and American. However, befriending one so vile as Maher brings to question not only Coulter’s judgment, but her convictions.

Leftist moonbat Chris Matthews is at it again. On Friday’s Hardball carried on MSNBC, Matthews used name calling to attack an opponent of his Progressive views. This time Congresswoman Michele Bachmann was the target of the vitriol that has become synonymous with the Left.
Matthews had a laugh-fest at Bachmann’s expense with four liberal male colleges that included ex-San Francisco mayor Willie Brown, Howard Fineman of the Huffingtonpost.com, Eugene Robinson of the Washington Post and Ron Reagan talk show host. Typical of bullies, Bachmann was not a part of the all male sexist party that through the following barbs at the Congresswoman.
- Mathews said: “Let’s take a look at this. My hero and heroine, Michele Bachmann, here, who’s been named today, by the way, to the Intelligence Committee – there’s a whopper”. Again the boys responding with a frat-house laugh.
- Just in case the audience didn’t get Mathews, negative vibes at this point in the show, he said: “You know why, I`ve suggested that Michele Bachmann does sort of represent sometimes the behavior of a zombie, that she does seem somewhat like she`s hypnotized. I`m serious.”
- Then sexist Brown chimed in: “You`re making an assumption that people who get elected to office in all cases are people who can think, people who pursue and reduce themselves for sure to quality information. She is not in that category. The voters elected her and the voters deserve her idiocy.”
- Reagan, then fearful he would not get his pound of flesh added: “We laugh about her – we laugh about her being on the intelligence committee, but that`s an important sort of post. It`s actually a little disturbing that she`s going to have access to – you know, to top secret cables and things. She`s a loon.” Junior, the Left said much worse about your father and that didn’t stop him from achieving, did it?
- Finally, Willie Brown won the battle of sexist behavior with his deep conclusion: “She may not be able to find the meeting room.”
The Left has used name-calling for decades to cut off debate on important issues of policy. It started with (and worked on) Barry Goldwater. In these earlier days Progressives called their opponents “war mongers”. Who can forget the despicable ad run by the Johnson campaign showing the little girl being consumed by a nuclear explosion?
With the ascendance of Ronald Reagan, the Left rightfully feared his popularity across a large political spectrum. Here was a man that could bring conservatism to the mainstream. In an effort to blunt the Gipper’s appeal, they attacked on his I.Q. Unlike in Goldwater’s time, the mud did not stick.
The Left, a group that is genetically gripped by fear of global cataclysmic events, now has another fear to add to their list: the ascendance of conservatives with estrogen. They understand the danger to the Progressive movement from conservative women who raise families and have successful careers. Like Reagan, they can bring a new breed of conservatives to the Country and make it mainstream. So the Left is back to the name-calling that includes the old claim of questioning opponents’ I.Q., but now with the added twist of throwing the “bimbo” bard at these conservative women.
As for Michele Bachmann’s I.Q., its level does not affect the legitimacy of her views. However, that’s the point with the Leftist attacks. Their goal is to avoid discussion on the merits of other viewpoints. At the same time it should be pointed out that Bachmann does have a JD and is a specialist on tax law. Her JD is from William & Mary Law School, which U.S. News and World Report ranked tied with George Washington University for the spot of 28th top law school.
The vitriol of the Left’s current attack on conservative women, as epitomized by Chris Matthews and pals, is a sign of desperation and fear. Given the historic outcome of last month’s elections, the fear is justified. To sexists like Mathews we can only say: “get over it”. The gals have “come a long way baby”!
