Journolisters On 2008 Election: Insufferable D-Bags Even In Victory

We already knew they were sore losers. They’re also despicably sore winners, as the latest Daily Caller document drop reveals. I’ve been noticing how disturbingly violent in their rhetoric, some of these guys are…Spencer Ackerman, once again, distinguishes himself:

LAURA ROZEN, FOREIGN POLICY (NOW POLITICO): Can you imagine if these bozos had won?

Nov. 7

LAURA ROZEN: People we no longer have to listen to: would it be unwise to start a thread of people we are grateful we no longer have to listen to? If not, I’ll start off: Michael Rubin.

MICHAEL COHEN, NEW AMERICA FOUNDATION: Mark Penn and Bob Shrum. Anyone who uses the expression “Real America.” We should send there ass to Gitmo!

JESSE TAYLOR, PANDAGON.NET: Michael Barone?  Please?

LAURA ROZEN: Karl Rove, Newt Gingrich (afraid it’s not true), Drill Here Drill Now, And David Addington, John Yoo, we’ll see you in court?

JEFFREY TOOBIN, THE NEW YORKER: As a side note, does anyone know what prompted Michael Barone to go insane?


SPENCER ACKERMAN: Let’s just throw Ledeen against a wall. Or, pace Dr. Alterman, throw him through a plate glass window. I’ll bet a little spot of violence would shut him right the fuck up, as with most bullies.

JOE KLEIN, TIME: Pete Wehner…these sort of things always end badly.


What’s this fascination Ackerman has with throwing people through plate glass windows?  Remember this from the Jeremiah Wright emails?

It’s not necessary to jump to Wright-qua-Wright’s defense. What is necessary is to raise the cost on the right of going after the left. In other words, find a rightwinger’s [sic] and smash it through a plate-glass window. Take a snapshot of the bleeding mess and send it out in a Christmas card to let the right know that it needs to live in a state of constant fear. Obviously I mean this rhetorically.

What’s up with these people?

A commenter like that on most right wing blogs would get banned for such violent, unhinged rhetoric.


Dr Zero: Whistling Past The JournoList Graveyard

Doc’s 2 cents is always worth reading:

The general public will be able to digest this story, and they won’t like the taste.  They’ve already got a low opinion of journalists.  It will plummet even further once they get a few bites of JournoList.  No magazine, newspaper, or network that continues to employ any of the people quoted in the Daily Caller story can be trusted by any fair-minded person as a reliable news source.  Period.

The discussion of false racism charges is an outrage. The American public is growing very tired of being pummeled with the racism club.  The cynical plan to pick a random conservative – “who cares?” – and slander them as racists will mix with disgust at the NAACP for trying the same wretched tactic on the Tea Party movement.  The once-feared Race Card is looking rather tattered around the edges.  The Left has been putting a lot of effort into shuffling those cards into the deck for the 2010 and 2012 campaigns.  The nitwits at JournoList just made them much more difficult to play.

By the way, Wired is standing by Ackerman. As Jim Treacher says, “Apparently, lying about somebody who disagrees with you is a “political leaning.”

  1. You know, the Left’s assumption of intellectual and moral superiority, as damning as it is, is beginning to get really irritating. Especially since I could debate any leftist, on any subject of his choosing, and wipe the floor with him. Hell, my Newfoundland puppy could do it.

    Of course, they know that, which is why they prefer to slander their adversaries. Sigh.


  2. Very true.
    Which is why this expose is so valuable. People need to understand how the left operates.

    Their only defense so far is, well, we all know these guys are left of center, what do you expect? Taylor Marsh is shocked by the naivety… because apparently, all of this underhanded lying, plotting, smearing, scheming to destroy peoples’ reputations, etc. is just normal stuff for ideologues.

    Well, I’m an ideologue, and I would never engage in any of that. I would never level any charge against someone unless I believed to be the truth.


  3. I admit, and I guess I should be ashamed to admit this on a quality blog, but I wish this Spencer Ackerman would try to fling me through a plate glass window. I’m pretty good at pushing buttons.

    And my boots need a good licking.

    Now I know that we aren’t supposed to right things like that on Conservative blogs, but sometimes you meet a ‘progressive punk’ that is so irresponsible and incorrigible, they only understand one thing.

  5. But how much coverage is this getting anywhere but the blogs and Fox? Since this came out, the media is Shirley Sherrod 24/7. I doubt it is a coincidence.
