Re: Devil of the Week for July 23
This weeks finalists are:
Fred Barnes: "Meaner. Meaner. Much meaner." is the response to Morton Kondracke www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,1255,00.html claiming that the "MoveOn.org-Howard Dean-Daily Kos-Michael Moore left wing of the Democratic Party" is "just as nasty and mean on the left as Rush Limbaugh and Michael Savage ... on the right."
Glenn Beck: "And we said it was because of weapons of mass destruction. Well, I got news for you: It wasn't. That was just gravy. That was the reason the administration gave us, and it was real. But they gave us this explanation so the public could wrap their heads around going to war. . . The real reason we went into Iraq was Iran. We were going there to stop Iran by planting the seeds of democracy all around Iran. . . At the time, President Bush decided to not tell us the real objective. I'm guessing . . . we just wouldn't understand that we were in the early stages of World War III. We went into Iraq three years ago to prevent World War III, as nuts as this might sound, to prevent the evil Iranian ideology from spreading across the region."
Coulter also said: "Well, Kofi Annan and the U.N. peacekeepers have done a terrific job keeping the peace. And as you know, Israel mistakenly bombed some of them a few days ago. I think most Americans are looking at that, hoping they can hear about the installation on 42nd Street [the U.N. building]."
Tom DeLay: "Well, it's typical John Kerry. And God forbid that he ever become president, because we'd -- he'd be in a bigger mess than we are in today. He is the soul and -- and the -- the soul of the Democratic Party, the banner-carrier, and he reflects what Democrats' first instinct is cut and run."
Richard "Bo" Dietl on MSNBC's Imus in the Morning: "[E]very Muslim family is told to have six to eight children . . . [and fanatics will] "let two of them go get blown up because you always got six more." Dietl advised to "make a parking lot out of Damascus . . . What we should do is start them up, light them up, because then they'll [Iran] send planes over to help Syria. And they have to fly over our no-fly zones, and we could pop them out like popcorn. And we could wipe them out because this is a war right now. In Iraq is a holy war going on right now, fighting these fundamentalists who want to see us dead. . . these fanatics are nuts."
Joseph Farah: "I think we've mis-numbered the global wars so far. I see this conflict - one that has defined history for the last 1,400 years - as World War I. This is the real Great War. . . This war is so big, some people can't even see it . . . This is the way it has always been - since Muhammad first got his demonic visions in the desert. Ever since then, radical adherents to his message have been on the march - beheading, converting by sword, wiping out entire villages, raping and pillaging. Sometimes they are set back - for years, decades, centuries. Sometimes they are on the ascendancy - for years, decades, centuries. This isn't World War III or World War IV. This is World War I. "
Chris Matthews: "And a smart lady. Her book's called Godless. Sometimes being smart isn't enough for a civil discourse. We'd love to have her back." What Matthews said after Ann Coulter had called Al Gore " a total f*g," Clinton a "latent homosexual" and strongly implying that most Americans want the bombing of UN building in midtown Manhattan.
Chip Reid (NBC reporter): "And people on the liberal anti-war wing of the Democratic Party absolutely can't stand the sight of the man, and when they hear Joe Lieberman saying nice things about him and about his war plan in Iraq, they just go crazy. It is amazing how angry they get about this."
Bill O'Reilly: "The reason we're not winning in Iraq . . . is because we didn't level Fallujah when we should have leveled it. Level it! Give every civilian 24 hours to get out and blow the hell out of it. [Muqtada al-] Sadr, this little thug cleric, he should've had a bullet right between his eyes the first year. That's why we're not winning it. We're not tough enough . . . [a few moments later] I'm not a macho man . . . I'm an intellectual. I mean, macho doesn't get you anywhere in this world. It really doesn't. You swagger around being a macho guy and you're not gonna get anywhere."
Savage also explained why "Wolf Blitzer is so anti-Semitic. He doesn't want to appear too Jewish. And in order to make sure he doesn't look too Jewish, and too pro-Jewish, he becomes anti-Jewish, and pro-Arab. That's number one. That's Wolf Blitzer's entire zeitgeist. So he's the worst of the bunch. He's the type who would have let children into the gas chamber in order to stay alive an extra day, in my estimation. The little, bearded Wolfy boy."
Hands down the winner is Chris Matthews and MSNBC. Matthews failed to challenge any of Ann Coulter's wild and inflammatory accusations and rhetoric. He also treated her as a brilliant intellectual who is forced to resort to provocation. Perhaps that's why MSNBC ran commercials for Coulter's upcoming appearance with a clip of her calling Clinton a homosexual. Congratulations to all the MSN for continuing to broadcast such bloviated bovine byproduct as spewed this past week.
