Charles has always been an idiotic, race-hustling jackass, but his Twitter performances during the Mesa debate were over the top, even for him:
Let me just tell you this Mitt “Muddle Mouth”: I’m a single parent and my kids are *amazing*! Stick that in your magic underwear. #CNNdebate
— Charles M. Blow (@CharlesMBlow) February 23, 2012
Here’s a selection of some other deuces he laid during his frothy-mouthed viewing of the Republican debate:
When are they going to ask Rick “The Risen” about the devil? [This is one of three times where Blow used "The Risen" to refer to Santorum.]
Hey look, Rick “Niggerhead” Perry is in the audience!!! That’s so sweet…
Panicking! Have to blog abt this debate and so far I have nothing. Can somebody check Santorum’s head for 6′s on TV? Give me something.
Santorum: We need a new president or “we are going to have a cataclysmic situation.” < There he goes w the crazed/scary talk...
Charles, as you know, has a lot of sanctimonious things to say about others’ public pronouncements.
You can read the comments of Jim Geraghty and others about Blow’s bloviation and the background of Blow’s civility grandstanding at the link above, but unfortunately for Blow, he pissed off Ace of Spades who mocked him mercilessly on Twitter, even changing his avi to a picture of blow so that he could speak in a Blow persona. Ace on Sex Rebel Charles:
Earlier Charles M. Blow announced something like “Hey wingnuts, every time you score you’re not looking to have a baby. It’s called recreational sex. #dealwithit.” I don’t know exactly what he wrote now because he blocked me.
But now, all butthurt or whatever, he’s going after people’s religion, which is a shock to me, because I thought we weren’t supposed to mention that Obama was a Muslim in Indonesia.
Blow has received kudos from New York Magazine this morning, but nothing will happen to him for a comment quite as offensive as the much-ballyhooed ESPN “Chink in his armor” headline. The magazine praises him for his succinct and unqualified apology, but here’s the graf:
Buzzfeed called Mormon magic underwear temple garments “a rough equivalent of Jews’ yarmulkes or tzitzit,” and sought comment from the Times, but received no response. This morning, Blow tweeted, “Btw, the comment I made about Mormonism during Wed.’s debate was inappropriate, and I regret it. I’m willing to admit that with no caveats.” (Other Twitter offenders should take note of the succinct apology, free of justification.)
“Inappropriate”? It’s not as though you used the salad fork on the main course, Charles. How about spiteful and intolerant?
When were they going to ask Rick Santorum about the Devil? As Newt Gingrich pointed out during the debate, Obama was not asked once on the 2008 campaign trail about his support of infanticide. Crazy Maxine Waters called a couple of Republicans “demons,” by name last week. Just a few days ago, an unindicted Blago co-conspirator Jesse Jackson, Jr supporter characterized his political headwinds as “demonic.” There’s a term that liberals like to throw around, demonization, and these are perfect examples of the process, but I don’t find Blow talking about them anywhere.
Tommy Christopher went ballistic over a hackneyed joke a couple of days ago, calling for Frank Luntz’ firing on the basis that a black man was dragged behind a motor vehicle years ago. Maybe I missed it, but I didn’t see any tweets from Tommy over Blow’s idiocy. The difference between hate speech and indiscretion is entirely a matter of liberal characterization, though Bill Press believes liberals are underrepresented in . . . the press. Here’s a good example:
Inappropriate? My ass.
