One thing we have to give to the loony left is that they can be entertaining. Today’s merriment comes from Carol Fowler, chairwoman of the South Carolina Democratic party and Matt Damon, movie star and renown political analyst.
Carol Fowler is from the Fowler family of entertainers. Readers may remember that her husband Don was the wacky guy who a couple of weeks ago said that hurricane Gustav was a gift from God to the Democratic party. According to Jonathan Martin’s blog at Politico.com, Ms Fowler said this of Gov Sarah Palin in an interview
"whose primary qualification seems to be that she hasn’t had an abortion.”.
This not only shows that the idiocy on the left knows no end, it also shows the indignation by many on the left at Palin’s decision not to abort her son after finding he had Down’s Syndrome. I mean, women abort 1000’s of perfectly healthy babies everyday, how could Palin choose to keep a damaged one? Oops, there goes that choice word again. Funny how the left gets upset that she made her own choice about her unborn baby. A cynical person would think that they don’t really care about choice like they say. In their mind there is only one choice, ignoring the obvious fallacy of this argument.
Finally, it gives us an indication that the attacks on Sarah Palin’s decision not to abort and the even more horrific attacks on her precious son are not going to end anytime soon. There is that little voice in the back of my mind that says let them keep it up because they will attack themselves right out of the election. In this instance though, I told the voice to shut up. This child is not a political football for anybody. The attacks on him and about him need to stop.
Finally, to prove that she is not only an idiot but also has the usual liberal penchant for denying the obvious, Ms Fowler continued:
“Among Democratic women and even among independent women, I don’t think it helped him,” she said. Told of McCain's boost in the new ABC/Washington Post among white women following the Palin pick, Fowler said: "Just anecdotally, I believe that those white women are Republican women anyway."
Finally we have Matt Damon. Mr. Damon told the Associated Press that he thought that a Palin Presidency would be like a “bad Disney movie” Story here:
"I think there's a really good chance Sarah Palin could become president, and I think that's a really scary thing," he told the Associated Press, referring to the Republican vice presidential nominee.
Damon suggested the odds are John McCain won't survive his first term.
"It's like a really bad Disney movie," he said. "The hockey mom, you know, 'Oh, I'm just a hockey mom'... and she's facing down [Russian] President Putin... It's totally absurd... It's a really terrifying possibility."
Further, to show he’s no political dummy, Mr. Damon offered up the analysis that the pick of Palin by McCain was for "political purposes.". You can almost see him nodding his head knowingly and winking.
The best part of this is a quote by him in Conde Nast Traveler last month:
"For a lot of actors, our biggest fear is that we're going to start talking about things we don't fully understand and sound like idiots," he said. "In the long run, I'll do much more good if, when I open my mouth, I have something worth saying."
He may want to go back and review that article again, because this was actually pretty good advice to himself.
Love them or not, the far left can be fun.
