Well, you didn’t think conservatives were going to take “coiffergate” sitting down did you?
What’s the conservative response to Mitt Romney forming a gang of fellow prep school students to tackle and forcibly cut the hair of a presumed gay student while he cried, an incident that still haunts five of the six participants to this day (Romney can’t quite recall it, although he was the one with the scissors)?
You dig through Obama’s old writings and find something you can use to pin Obama as a bully as well.
That’s what Michelle Malkin‘s website “Twitchy” did. And morons across the right wing blogosphere are eating it with a spoon!
Here is the portion that “Twitchy” includes to show what a horrible bully little Barry Obama was. This clipping (as well as the image above) copied under “fair use” terms from “Twitchy.com”
Golly! Pretty immature behavior for a teenager in prep school… WAIT A MINUTE. WHAT???
Let’s find the book, look up the phrase and see just when in young Barry Obama’s life this happened. This clipping doesn’t really set the time period. But if this is the sort of behavior of a prep school student who should be at the stage where he might LIKE girls… I wonder how old Obama was when this happened.
The Twitchy story doesn’t say. Well, guess we gotta resort to the Internet Tubes. We’ll see if we can get this clip into a broader context and see what kind of horrible bully this Obama actually was!
Dreams From My Father.
TEN!!! HE WAS FUCKING 10 FUCKING YEARS OLD!!! AND HE FELT FUCKING BAD ABOUT IT!!! THAT AFTERNOON! AND HE WROTE ABOUT IT IN A BOOK!
Not only is this passage being hacked to remove references to Obama’s age in “Twitchy”, Sean Hannity is going on about it. The entire Right Wing Nut Job Establishment is going nuts about it. Red State, and all the comment sections on every story about Romney are running with the segment cut from Twitchy, which does NOT mention that OBAMA WAS 10-YEARS OLD AND FELT BAD ABOUT IT RIGHT AWAY!!!
Is there no depth to the intellectual dishonesty of conservatives?
CANDIDATE A: Led a gang that tackled a presumed gay kid, tackled him, cut his hair with scissors until he cried, scarring him and the other participants for life. Walked a nearly blind professor into a closed door on purpose and laughed about it. Shouted “Atta Girl!” whenever another presumed gay student spoke. Claims (while chuckling) he doesn't remember ANY of this.
CANDIDATE B: Gave a little girl a shove when being teased about”liking her” when he was 10 years old. Felt immediate guilt. Wrote about it in a book.
WHO IS THE WORSE PERSON IN THIS CASE?
This is what they’ve GOT? This is what they FIGHT BACK WITH?
Good God in Heaven Above!
