And the award for the dumbest and most revealing comment from a prominent left-wing blog regarding the firing of Juan Williams goes to “DougJ” at Balloon-Juice:
“Juan Williams’ firing did not happen in a vacuum. It happened in the context of him having been the official Fox News
lawn jockeystooge for years.”
Oh, he did a strike-through, so he didn’t really mean it and it’s not a firing offense, right?
Note: Based on the comments over there, it appears the strike-through was added only after people complained, so yes, the author did intend to call Juan Williams a “lawn jockey,” and yes, as one of my readers commented, the folks who run Balloon-Juice also are the first to call conservatives racist.
See my prior post Saturday Night Card Game (Balloon Juice) quoting John Cole, lead blogger at Balloon-Juice (emphasis mine):
“The funny thing about all of this is that no matter how bad all their ideas are, no matter how disastrous their governance has been, no matter how many horrible things they have done to the economy and this country, what really is killing the Republican party is that deep down, they are just complete assholes. You see it in the way they treat women, you see it in the way they treat minorities, you see it in the way they treat homosexuals, you see it in the way they treat anyone who is not a white Christian, and you see it in the way they treat anyone who disagrees with them slightly about anything. They just have no respect for anyone, and it shows.”
