Quick one.

Criticism continues to pour in for MSNBC’s Martin Bashir over his disgraceful comments about former Alaska governor Sarah Palin last Friday.

Appearing on Fox News’s America’s Newsroom Tuesday, media analyst Howard Kurtz called them “sad, pathetic, and disgusting” saying that Bashir is a “practitioner” of “the politics of vitriol and destruction”

Kurtz wondered aloud to Martha MacCallum about the lack of response from the executives at MSNBC. Why would they respond? This is precisely what they are paying Bashir for. A mediocre intellect at best and possessing no on-camera charm at all, Bashir is pretty much the MSNBC vitriol chihuahua. The network’s only hope for ratings is to hurl vile slander at Republicans and hope their viewers are out of jail that night to see/hear it.

Stephen Kruiser is a professional comedian and writer who has also been a conservative political activist for over two decades. A co-founder of the first Los Angeles Tea Party, Kruiser often speaks to grassroots groups around America and has had the great honor of traveling around the world entertaining U.S. troops.

Gotta hand it to Bashir, though. Don't like the twit one little bit, but the man knows how to apologize. None of that namby-pamby "I'm sorry if you were offended" crap. He puts it out there. He should.

The mainstream media, where Kurtz lives, encourages this sort of thing when they let Democrats and liberals off for lesser offenses that they'd crucify conservatives and Republicans for. E.g., Letting people like Froma Harrop get away with villifying the Tea Party and at the same time is in charge of an organization preaching civility in politics.

I see American politics as the "All-Star Wrestling" shows I watched as a kid. The formula was that 1) there were good guy wrestlers, 2) there were bad guy wrestlers, 3) there were "referees", 4) the bad guy wrestlers could get away with everything, and 5) the good guy wrestlers couldn't get away with anything. While the "referee" was chewing out one of the good guy wrestlers from some slight or imagined infraction, the bad guy wrestlers were trying to make the other good guy wrestler chew on a turnbuckle.

The good guy wrestlers are the conservatives, the bad guy wrestlers are the liberals, and the "referees" are our impartial, unbiased, objective, and completely fair "news media".

Bashir somehow found a way, for once, to offend one of the "referees". It's not in the script. They hate it when that happens.

Look: any sin, left unchecked, continues along this path. It is human nature to overreach. We're like wolves in that regard, the smell of blood is just too much for us. Apparently, it's an old Eskimo trick: if there's a rogue wolf hanging around, they bury a bloody knife in the ice, blade up. When the wolf smells the blood, he can't help himself, he has to lick the blade and winds up killing himself because he can't stop the blood lust even when it's his own blood.

That's pretty much what happened to Bashir. Here's the difference: that would have ended a conservative's broadcasting career, right there. I suspect Bashir will be around awhile. I hope they prove me wrong.

I'e used this analogy many times before myself. We must have grown up in the same era.

My father was a part-time pro wrestler. Perhaps Alinsky was a fan too, as he stole lots from their script for Rules for Radicals.

See, this is why I'm so biased against Eskimos. Lousy sneaks, to take unfair advantage like that, and for evil motive! I'd like to devour them all.

Come to think of it, for Eskimos read "mainstream journalists." G-d, I miss Andrew Breitbart.

Quote: "Bashir is pretty much the MSNBC vitriol chihuahua. "

"Bashir is pretty much the MSNBC rabid vitriol chihuahua. " - there, fixed it!

Small dogs have security issues and inferiority complexes, ya' know.

I had mentally inserted words attack dog, but Chihuahua is the more poetic choice.

On the up side, "bashiring" could become a substitute for some potty terms.
