Where Liberalism Is Alive and Well!

Jane Hamsher Is A Petty Person Who Should Not Be Representing Liberals!

The incredible Shoq at Shoq Value has written extensively about Jane Hamsher, the woman who seems to be the leader of the hateful left these days. Her vitriol and irrational hatred for President Obama oozes from every pore of her body. When she appears on MSNBC, she can’t even look like a nice person anymore, the sneer on her face overwhelms any fake smile she tries to flash. In catching up on my Shoq reading, I came across this piece of “niceness” from ole Jane that in my opinion, shows precisely why she should be ignored, shunned and never put on television to represent anything but her petty self.  From Shoq Value

Her lowest moment, after the “GOP operative” ploy flopped, was her confusing a true story of me moving 1000 miles from Washington, to live nearer to my mother, who, approaching 84, lived alone in Florida. She characterized this as “living with your mother.”  Even if that were true, which it isn’t, or I’d be eating a lot better, no one was grasping why this 51 year old woman was casting aspersion on a desire to care for one’s aging parent. Had she no sense of proportion, if not decency? Was any criticism of her work so unbearable that it was worth unleashing such a comment, likely to achieve little beyond making her about 3 feet tall, even in the eyes of her most loyal supporters?  Was this the formidable “pro-left” leader,” as the media, and even the White House has called her? If so, the professional part was not in evidence this day.

Apparently, it was worth it to her, as she made no attempt to apologize or soften it before thousands of people. Her failure to do that was another sign that her judgment has been grossly overrated by a lot of people over the years. But then, it is that very same judgment that led me to post my criticism in the first place.  If she wasn’t considered an important voice on the left, I’d be giddy over someone making such an atomic asshat of themselves in public. But since she still does have that reputation in many quarters, I don’t think it helpful to progressivism that any leading liberal’s reputation be dashed to pieces in front of thousands—and potentially—even millions of people.

  1. I heard a rumor that some democrats are registering as Republicans in a Trojan Horse Strategy. What they assume is that Obama is going to run unopposed in the primaries and they want to get Ron Paul as the opposition canidate so Obama can slaughter him.
    This seems unfair to me but my friend reassured me the Republicans will be overjoyed to increase their black Republican voter base.

  2. In states with “open primaries” like Texas, one can go to either party’s primary polling place and ask for a ballot. However, you can only vote in ONE party’s primary. Several years ago, when the Democrats mostly had one or NO candidates for each position, many Democrats “became Republicans” and voted for the weakest candidates in their primary. I joined in and regretted it when later, my name getting out to the Republicans, my mailbox, emailbox were full of candidates’ petitions for my vote. Worse were the robocalls. So my one insignificant vote brought me a lot of pesky interferences.
