Fight back against media hypocrisy - Defend Edwards' bloggers!

Right-wing media sources have made two progressive bloggers recently hired by the John Edwards campaign targets for character assassination. ABC, CNN, the AP, and the NYTimes, have uncritically "reported" these attacks. The coverage has been riddled with inaccuracies. Tell the outlets to stop being little more than stenographers for their vitriol.

  • Hey - nice comments on Deal Hudson's blog - but Catholics for a Free Choice is a not a good Catholic Group to quote - in fact they are not even Catholic - even us progressive Catholics are not happy with Kissling.

  • Thanks for your comment.

    I think Kissling represents more Catholics that I personally know. Most of them are against abortion personally and would not have one, but they never look down at any woman who made that choice, and they practice some form of birth control. They do not believe in "war" against a candidate, but rather, how do we work this out, and they back someone who doesn't fire people the first week on the job based on some comments made long before the employer hired them.

    But the point is more that Donohue is an entry to the RW hate by shouting out Jews and having little respect for feminists, who have the 1st Amendment to speak out. It is OK for him to have it, but it's not for feminist provocateurs to have opinions on their own blogs that work as technical consultants, not spokespersons? And Donohue used the three letter word more than once "war." We are in one right now and I don't see his plan for peace. Instead, he is loudmouth to get attention. His 15 min are up.

  • Kissling is a world renown heretic and Edwards bloggers are vulgar, crude and pagan anti-Catholic bigots.

    Edwards has chosen to launch his campaign with bigots, we will respond.

  • "oh, look who is here. Eamon, the sexual harasser also known as Eric McFadden."

    I don't know him, but I know about what Deal Hudson has said and this is his commentary:

    So you accuse the feminists of being crude and vulgar, yet a person Bill Donohue supports raped a woman when he was stupid? And Donohue forgives him? Yet, he attacks some posts by them that were well before Edwards campaign invited them to the staff? Yeppers, they said some things that are untasteful, but neither one of them have actually committed an act of crime.

    As John Stosell would say, and I don't care for him, but I like the expression: Give me a break!

  • It wasn't rape Benny, she was hot for him and flirted, went out with him thinking she was going to get the hot professor. Gave him fellatio just like Lewinski. She got upset when she realized it was just sex and he wasn't interested.

    It's tough to wake up in the morning and the man you are attracted to say - what a horrible mistake. She wanted to be paid for the sex and she was. I'm sure the two potty mouth women have plenty of sexual romps to go along with their potty mouth and can relate?

    That's besides the point. You support Clinton I assume? He has, what, 3 women out there accusing him of sexual misconduct? I'm sure you fully embrace his sexual exploitation of women and clap when he's heading the DNC Convention.

    Edwards wants to embrace crude pagan potty mouth Klu Klux Klan women, we'll be there to meet and greet his campaign until he cries uncle.

    peace to you!

    If you don't know who Eamon is, it's Eric McFadden formerly of the katholics in alliance for severing the heads of unborn for the common good.

    He has a stake in the fate of the two Klu Klux Klan bloggers Edwards hired. His political activism included sexually harassing prolife women, threatening, libel, slander and bullying.

    You don't support those kinds of political tactics do you?

    I hope not.

  • Why is it that Deal had to pay a 30K settlement and resign his post at the Crises when 5 other editoral board people demanded it, Peggy Noonan canceled a speech because of Deal.

    You guys, and you are men who are posting on Deal's behalf, probably support Clayton Williams too who said about date rape, "Just lay back and enjoy the ride."

    Move along, not much more for you to see here.

  • I told you, when Deal woke up in the morning and told her they ought not to have done what they did, she got all upset about it. She went to him for homework help to the Mexican bar and watched as they all dirty danced, drank and enjoyed herself. Her Monica Lewinski wasn't as romantic as she expected. She wanted money to console her low self esteem afterwards and she got it. Beats saying "I never had sex with that woman" doesn't it. Integrity is important.

    Peggy supports Deal. Fr. Groeschel was the honoree in her place when her schedule got too bogged down.

    The only difference between Deal and Bill Clinton is, one of them woke up and went to confession and the other one woke up and called the woman a liar and has two others claiming sexual exploitation.

    Can't have it both ways Bennyu unless you want to parse what is is.

    Hey - I liked your observation of Edwards saying thank you to the wait staff. I watch those kinds of things too as it speaks volumes. The snootery of some makes me want to puke. But, be that as it may - hiring the Klu Klux Klan is naughty and will set off an unfortunate chain of events for his political career.


    happy valentine's day

    I guess you couldn't tell when I posted about Eric McFadden's political activism that included sexual harassment,etc., against prolife women - - but I am a woman.

  • You do know that Bill Clinton paid off Paula Jones after he had her escorted up to his hotel room and dropped his pants to the floor?

    He called her a liar too, remember? The poor state trooper was forced to testify against Clinton and admit that it happened.

    If my memory serves me correctly, she still had to fight Clinton in court for years before he finally ponied up and gave her money.

    I'm not sure if the Lewinsky ever sued him. I don't even think she ever got her dress back. The third one Clinton sexually exploited, Flowers, wasn't paid either.

    I am curious - Which would you rather have, a man who wakes up and says he's sorry and goes to confession - - or a man who calls the women liars?
