I Would Rather Hang Out with a Motorcycle Gang than Martin Bashir

I would rather Hang out with a Motorcycle Gang than Martin Bashir.

Why did Martin Bashir get his bowels in an uproar over Sarah Palin’s comment that the growing national debt would become as problematic a chapter in US history as slavery?

With his radar for finding prejudice when there is none, was he implying that Palin was insulting Blacks?  Liberals are like that.  They sniff out false bigotry like human feces. They feed off it.  They identify with it.

Yet doltish Bashir didn’t begin to understand that Palin was referring to our economic decline under Obama and that we will become slaves to his fiscal failure and his diminishing our credit worthiness.

BashirBashir then apologized, “I deeply regret what was said….”  I mean that’s a non-starter.  Of course he regrets what was said, it cost him universal embarrassment and his job.  That doesn’t mean that he regrets his suggesting that Palin eat human feces.  It means only that he regrets that his comment caused him to lose his job.

Bashir hides behind “what was said” rather than “what I said.”  He doesn’t really take full responsibility.  He acts like the gross statement was made by someone else, not “I.”

It is amazing how violent liberal rhetoric tends to get.  Progressives are always accusing conservatives of being rednecks, bikers and violent people.  I would rather hang out with a motorcycle gang than Martin Bashir.  At least the right wing is not known to make scatological comments about women.
