Media double standard on over the top rhetoric
Of course we all remember the howls of outrage from the mediots over Ann Coulter’s comments about the “Jersey Girls” – but what I’m wondering is: where’s the outrage over this (emphasis added in bold)?
Sacrificing Our Troops on the Altar of Republican Politics
Larry C Johnson
Leave it to the Porcine Draft Dodgerâ€“Karl Roveâ€“to impugn the character of combat veterans. Can’t blame him for trotting out the same playbook that worked so well in 2004 against the candidacy of John Kerry. If it worked once it should work again.
Of course I am referring to Karl’s speech Tuesday night to Republicans in New Hampshire. According to a piece in Wednesday’s Washington Post:
In a speech to New Hampshire Republican officials here Monday night, the White House deputy chief of staff attacked Democrats who have criticized the U.S. war effort in Iraq, such as Sen. John F. Kerry (Mass.) and Rep. John P. Murtha (Pa.), who he said advocate “cutting and running.”
“They may be with you for the first shots,” Rove said of such opponents. “But they’re not going . . . to be with you for the tough battles.”
Karl is a shameless bastard. Small wonder his mother killed herself. Once she discovered what a despicable soul she had spawned she apparently saw no other way out. It would be one thing if his vile tactics were simply mere smears of politicians like Kerry and Murtha. They are big boys and should be able to defend themselves quite ably against this turd.
I ask again: where’s the outrage?

Hat tip to AllahPundit, who has much more.
