Dem's some Senstive Dems
My local newspaper, the Danbury News-Times, ran a front-page story today about a Web page put up by a radio commenator Neil Boortz showing flattering pictures of attractive female GOP members, contrasted with some rather horrible pictures of Democratic women.
(I know the image at left is hard to see -- you can see it full-size here.)
Some local Republicans apparently linked to the images, and that has local Dems all a-dither.
Okay, okay, I love this -- this is my imitation of the local Democratic reaction:
*lower lip quivering* (sniff) You're being really, really mean to us!
Granted, this is pretty hamhanded stuff -- not to my taste.
In fact, I'll go as far as to say I think this stuff is pretty counterproductive and adds nothing of substance to the political dialogue. That's why I don't listen to folks like Boortz or Rush Limbaugh or the like.
But this is a clear case of whose ox has been gored. I mean, when did the Dems become so thin-skinned?
These are the same people who hosted a NY fundraiser a year ago where celebrity after celebrity mounted the stage and shrieked obscenities at George Bush. The best part -- at the end Johns Kerry and Edwards got up and espoused their belief in "strong American values."
And these same Democrats sent 100,000 howling imbeciles into the streets of New York City last year with the express intent of disrupting the Republican National convention.
But they get upset about an unflattering Web site.
And if you think those are isolated occurences, give a daily listen to the crap spewing from Air America.
Message to Dems: Get a grip. Unbunch those petticoats. And try not to be so overly sensitive AND hypocritical.
