Scratch a Progressive, Find a Misogynist
You stay classy, Keith -- "Olbermann: S.E. Cupp Should Have Never Been Born, Proves ‘Necessity’ of Planned Parenthood:"
Keith Olbermann is not known for his candor. In a sense, it‘s what’s made him a popular figure on the left. And sure, he makes off-the-wall comments sometimes in order to evoke a response. But he may have gone too far today when he suggested that conservative commentator S.E. Cupp is a prime example of why the world needs Planned Parenthood (PP). Translation, she should have never been born.
At the Tatler, Bryan Preston adds:
Even worse, when caught out on his obviously hateful remark, Olbermann attempts to backtrack, by claiming only that her parents should have seen to it that she was never born.
Because that’s obviously soooo much better. Only in a leftist’s mind is the world a better place for lacking people like S.E.
What is it with liberal men and strong, beautiful conservative women, that the former have to go out of their way to trash the latter so much? Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, a couple of my former bosses, and now S.E. Cupp… They all get the same over-the-top, hateful to the point of wishing them dead, insane treatment from liberals like Olbermann and his tingly mini-me, Chris Matthews. What’s up with that?
To be fair, Olbermann's eliminationist misogyny transcends partisanship -- recall his crack about Hillary Clinton when she wouldn't resign from the primaries in 2008:
On Olbermann's April 24, 2008, program, guest Howard Fineman was discussing the delegate math with Our Hero, stating, "some adults somewhere in the Democratic party to step in and stop this thing, like a referee in a fight that could go on for thirty rounds. Those are the super, super, super delegates who are going to have to decide this."
To which Olbermann replied, "Right. Somebody who can take her into a room and only he comes out."
Or to put it another, whether it's their past or present anchors...
