‘Frat-boy conservatism in the Rose Garden’

Joan Walsh (Salon): What a buffoon.

Daily Caller “reporter” Neil Munro …. shouted, “Why do you favor foreigners over American workers?” while reportedly identifying himself as an immigrant….

…. I’m not one to revere the imperial presidency, but it’s unbelievable how wingnuts treat this man with such unprecedented and bullying disrespect….

…. And for right-wingers who insist Democrats are too quick to cry racism: Really, what else explains this constant, in-your-face (literally) contempt for a president?

Certainly they disrespected President Clinton, too, but never with such in-person abuse. Clinton was impeached after a political witch hunt and treated poorly even by the so-called liberal media, but he was never stalked into the Rose Garden or congressional chambers and heckled, as Obama has been.

…. It’s no accident that Munro works for bow-tied, sexually anxious bully Tucker Carlson, who famously (but not believably) boasted of beating up a gay man who made a pass at him in a men’s room, and admitted that when he hears Hillary Clinton speak, “I involuntarily cross my legs” …. This is your modern Republican Party, folks. It only gets worse.

I’m no fan of Joan Walsh – at all – I don’t think she’s always shown much respect to PBO either, but I thought she was spot on here.

I honestly can’t even begin to describe how much I ***ing despise these people.

Back in a while.

And happiness is ….. knowing Joan is back in action.

Joan underwent surgery recently that she was very nervous about, and you all were completely great in offering her your love and support.

But I was worried that we hadn’t heard from her, even though, of course, it would take time for her to recover.

Just now?

An email:

Joan K Shaw has donated $25.00 to your barackobama.com grassroots fundraising page!

Joan, if you’re reading this: you’re an invincible treasure!

Love ya.

Come back to us soon.

****

She’s back!! Joan just commented in the previous thread:

I’m fully dressed for the first time in what seems forever, sitting at the computer, and I see I’ve missed half a lifetime of TOD happenings, not the least of which is your BIRTHDAY HZ! So please forgive me for being so LATE, but Happy Happy Birthday today.

I tried to catch up on the news, kept paging backward, got as far as Herm Cain’s speech and stopped cold. Please tell me the surgeon hasn’t abstracted part of my brain along with my kidney stone – but could anyone here understand what he was SAYING? It all sounded vaguely scatalogical and mean, but altogether incomprehensible. Perhaps it’s the hydrocodone I’m taking?

By the way, thanks hugely for all the well wishes from you all. My oldest daughter copied them off and brought them to me!
