The Other McCain

"One should either write ruthlessly what one believes to be the truth, or else shut up." — Arthur Koestler

Aww, Shucks, Ma’am, ‘Tweren’t Nothin’ …

Posted on | April 18, 2012 | 15 Comments

After yesterday’s post about Jennifer Stefano, Bob Beckel’s F-bomb and Neal Boortz’s “rabid shrew” comments, the ladies at AFP Pennsylvania hail me as a “BeckelGate Hero.”

If a blog could blush . . .

UPDATE: She shares her side of the story:

What I want people to take away
from my exchange with Bob Beckel

UPDATE II: The video, in case you missed it:

No kidding: Despite his ideological liberalism and Democratic partisanship, Bob Beckel is beloved by (almost) everyone who knows him. Beckel is a recovering alcoholic who has helped counsel many others with similar problems. And being the token Democrat on Fox News has got to be a tough job.

Also, you should be sure to follow Jennifer Stefano, Katy Abrams and AFP Pennsylvania on Twitter.

    Re Beckel:  his lot is no tougher than that of every conservative on every news show broadcast by ABCNBCCBSNPRPBSCNNMSNBC for the past five decades.  And if one of them had done what Beckel did, the firestorms would rage for a month.  I’m cutting him no slack whatsoever.  That’s the way they play the game.  That’s the way I play it, too.

     Exactly, we need to be as hard core and hateful with them as they are with us, otherwise we’ll always be at a disadvantage. They want us to fight them like they expect our troops to fight the enemy (whom the Democrats show far more concern for) when they are sent in combat, with one arm tied behind their backs.

    The most shameful episode I can think of in recent memory was when Al Sharpton attacked Allen West for pointing out the Democrats racial history, and how Democrats are running what amounts to a modern welfare plantation. Almost nobody came to West’s defense. We all should have rallied around him and demanded the “conservative” pundits in the media do so as well. And it should be a constant attack, not just a one or two day defensive maneuver.

    I enjoyed seeing Jennifer Stefano again (saw her at CPAC); too bad she was with Bob Beckel who is just snorty-rude.

    Would you like a block of cheese and some crackers to go with that fine whine?

    Clue for the clueless: even if people agree with you (which no one does here), they’re still going to think you’re stupid for posting in text speak.  It’s the height of selfishness to impose on all your readers with your mutilated spelling so that you can save 10 seconds of typing.

    How a conservative can feel bad for the likes of Bob Beckel is beyond me. Every patriot that goes on with these statist scum bags should be trying to get under their skin.

    “Despite his ideological liberalism and Democratic partisanship, Bob Beckel is beloved by (almost) everyone who knows him.”

    If they love him, they would have adored Leon Trotsky.

    That’s true, and besides, I’m wondering if we’re talking about the same guy here….

    I see Beckel and he is irritating.  There are other leftists out there that I don’t dislike as a person.  Beckel strikes me as  jerk.
