    “You can’t argue policy with people that are uncivil.”

    “They’re arguing character and we’re arguing policy.”

    I’m quoting those. For irony.

    Shapiro’s psychological projection in this clip should put him in the running for the Bryan Fischer of the Year award.

    I really hate the fact YouTube doesn’t allow viewers to start the player, that it instead starts automatically.

    Well, that’s “result-oriented” thinking for you: Demonizing Obama that much didn’t get the desired result, so you obviously have to demonize him more.

    But then, what do you expect from Ben Shapiro, the guy who thinks that“Sesame Street” has a left-wing agenda – apparently, because the characters don’t hate and exploit each other enough.

    Now I might not be a big city boy, with an electronical computerizer with one of them fancy keyboards with all twenty six letters of the alphabet, but mine doesn’t start it real automatic-like.

    Really? Pat Robertson was just talking to one of the voices in his head. They edited in Shapiro after. It’s movie magic!

    Nasty little dweeb. If Shapiro were bigger, he would no doubt be a bully. Instead, his pugnacity comes across as pathetic overcompensation. I wonder if he is capable of speaking without contempt in his voice. (Perhaps when he speaks of St. Reagan — the artificial right-wing construct, I mean; not the real-life politician who compromised more often than is permissible in today’s tea-party movement.)

    Shades of Rove saying the President practiced “voter suppression” by not being nice to Mittens, while the Republicans were hatching every possible scheme to keep the poor and minorities from voting. But what else can you expect from that socialist, communist, Kenyan, anti-American, pro-Islamic, Barak (Barry Hussain Soweto) Obama?

    Ben Shapiro’s argument is far worse than you describe it. He’s falsely claiming that the Republicans’ general campaign theme, especially ’12 candidate Mitt Romney, described President Obama as a good person who was an incompetent president. That the Democrats were depending on character assassinations while the Republicans lost because they instead focused on policy issues. This is why I argued for Shapiro’s nomination as Fischer of the Year.

    I don’t think Mittens himself particularly tried to demonize Obama. He mostly pretended to be above that. I think what Shapiro may be getting at is that, while the Right in general and the Republicans below the level of Mittens, constantly tried to demonize Obama, the next time, the presidential candidate should abandon any pretense of being, you know, presidential, and bring all the crazy. Lord knows, they have the candidates lined up who can do that … I hope, I hope!

    This guys brains must be a total sack of shit. Do republithugs do anything else but demonize Obama. Did Romney and Co do anything else but demonize Obama. Turn on Beck, Rush, Hannity and the 100,000 lesser lights and tell me honestly if anything but Obama bashing is going on at any given time. Give me a fucking break.

    God, his voice is even more irritating than I imagined. And it’s like his mouth is a bottleneck for the high-bandwidth bile corked up in his head. He can’t seem to get it out fast enough.

    Ugh. If I recall, he’s married. His spouse… poor thing.

    It’s pretty impressive that he found time to write a book. That must have taken a lot of study hall periods.

  12. says

    Every time I see something like that I can’t help but think I’ve somehow managed to tap into the media feed from an alternate mirror universe.

  13. says

    The fact that Shapiro has any respectability inside the conservative entertainment complex after the Friends of Hamas fiasco speaks volumes about how low things have gotten in this country. It’s like no one on the CEC cares if what they say is true or not, just that it bashes the Kenyan Usurper.

  14. scienceavenger says

    Exhibit A as to why I’ve so often suggested to Ed that Shapiro be included among the worst lawyers in the world.

    @12 I thought the same thing. Sounds like Sean Hannity’s nasally higher-pitched cousin, and with an annoying sneer. Just when you thought nothing could be worse than his writing. Standards at townhall are really in the gutter.

    @ Scienceavenger @ 17:

    Exactly! I want to know why Beni didn’t last even a year as a lawyer at Goodwin Proctor. Sadly, No skewers him a lot and has dubbed him America’s Worst Unemployed Lawyer.

    “Even Pat Robertson seemed to think he was a little nuts.”

    Reat that as, “cutting into MY revenue stream.”.

    “It’s pretty impressive that he found time to write a book. That must have taken a lot of study hall periods.”

    I think at his level of education that they still refer to it as “rug time”.

    Too many people voted for him…obviously he wasn’t vilified enough!

    Some day these fruitloops may wake up to the fact that there’s a backlash associated with that sort of behavior. Then again, maybe they won’t — it would require critical thinking skills.

    I’m surprised nobody questioned what on earth Shapiro was doing on the 700 club to begin with.

    I guess it has become so transparently obvious to everyone that xian “fundamentalism” has become so linked to right wing politics… wait, strike that, reverse it… that it’s not even worth noticing any more?

    I did think about that. There’s definitely been a trend wherein not only fundamentalists of different Christian denominations collude with one another, but with different religions as well. Heck, Dinesh D’Souza even proposed that American Christian conservatives make common cause with Muslims against what he decries as liberal excess.

  20. baal says

    Shapiro’s little litany against Romney was pretty much factual. While it wasn’t a point for point comparison on say water policy of the southwest, the question of who should be president does hinge of the character of the ‘decider in chief”. Romney showed a repeated bias towards being a callus uncaring person. The endless attacks at Obama’s character had more to do with silent (and not so silent) racist dogwhistles and next to nothing to do with Obama’s actual past.
