Joy Behar has another intelligence-insulting column at CNN.
First, there’s this:
It’s no surprise the Glenn Becks of the world have been attacking Obama since the moment he stepped into the Oval Office. Beck and his “>blathering buddies on the right — you know, the stinky kids in the coatroom who eat their own boogers. Always pick on the kids least likely to fight back.
CNN should be ashamed of itself for allowing this incredibly immature woman to comment. Now, to be clear, I’m not irritated because she insulted Glenn Beck; he’s plenty insultable. I’m writing because a major news organization, with worldwide reach, read by millions, allows a person to write for them who thinks that clever contribution to news analysis involves calling people with whom she disagrees stinky booger-eaters.
This is not commentary. This is not analysis. This is not even a Dave Barry book. It’s just plain stupid.
But don’t worry, the stupid doesn’t last long. It quickly gets replaced by the scary.
Back to the schoolyard, where Barry Obama is being bullied. You know what? He’s big, he can take it. You know why? Because not only is he right in his beliefs, but he knows that if push comes to shove, he can lay out the rest of these runts with a couple of good smacks of his presidential pen.
It’s not time to panic, but President Obama needs to size up one of these twerps, cock back his arm, and take a swing soon, because the Democratic majorities in Congress won’t last forever.
Now, I have no idea what, exactly she means by “take a swing,” but the presidential pen line indicates that she is referring to legal action. Let me repeat that: Ms. Behar, who writes for CNN, is advocating that the president pass a law that would prevent people who exercise their First Amendment rights against the president from doing so.
