Politico's Jim VandeHei Is Finally Honest About Something: His 'Faith In Humanity' Is Only Restored When Conservatives Disappear

I won’t denounce Politico’s Jim VandeHei here. He’s being honest. He hates conservatives and he’s admitting it. That makes him an intolerant, bigoted progressive — a typical progressive, in other words. He should admit that too, and then admit that Politico carries water for progressives. Because it does.

Politico co-founder Jim VandeHei showed up on PBS’s Charlie Rose Wednesday night, and from the comfort of Rose’s pitch-black studio he tossed aside his journalistic objectivity and aired out his own political opinions – particularly his disdain for Republicans.

I will say, I have faith in humanity, I have faith in America in that if you think about a lot of the most controversial figures who’ve gotten big platforms in politics — Michele Bachmann today announcing that she retired, Steve King not running for Senate in Iowa, Allen West in Florida, Herman Cain, Sarah Palin — all these people who were the most bombastic voices on the Right, who were political celebrities…

Notice that all the “controversial figures” VandeHei hates are on the right. His lack of humanity isn’t restored by the fall of anyone on the left. But…media bias doesn’t exist!!11!11111!!!

Honesty is refreshing. So here’s some honesty. Jim VandeHei isn’t fit to shine Allen West’s boots or carry Sarah Palin’s purse. I would have said “Sarah Palin’s rifle,” but the mere mention of the word would probably have sent VandeHei running in tears.
