Joan Walsh: ‘I Look Kind of Stupid’

“The lying is what disturbs me. He implicated a lot of us. I gave him the benefit of the doubt, let’s just say that. And, you know, I look kind of stupid. But on the other hand . . .”

No, ma’am. There is no “other hand.”

You falsely accused Andrew Breitbart of “savaging a 21-year-old girl” and — on the morning of June 1 — doubled down by emphasizing the need to remind reporters “the story came from Breitbart and his right-wing smear machine.”

If Anthony Weiner did what Breitbart said he did, how is it a “smear” for Breitbart to describe what Weiner did? You still haven’t answered that question, Ms. Walsh and so, yeah, you’re right: You look kind of stupid.

And there is no “other hand.”
