Video: Whiny baby cuts and runs when reporter asks unwelcome question

posted at 9:25 pm on October 31, 2008 by Allahpundit

Via Bill Amos, yet another example of our right-wing media trying to “distract” well-meaning progressives by asking them why they’ve taken to calling their constituents cretinous racists and rednecks.

This must be the video William Amos was talking about?

carbon_footprint on October 31, 2008 at 9:26 PM

Duh, If I would read first. Sorry Allah.

carbon_footprint on October 31, 2008 at 9:27 PM

Yes Carbon I sent it and was pushing allah but Allah is all seeing and I can never get ahead of him.

William Amos on October 31, 2008 at 9:28 PM

Spew talking points. That’s all dems know. Health Care, Economy…blah blah

carbon_footprint on October 31, 2008 at 9:28 PM

Murtha’s going down on Novembeer 4. You heard it here. You heard it from Manly.

ManlyRash on October 31, 2008 at 9:29 PM

I wish they had him actually walking away like a crybaby he is.

William Amos on October 31, 2008 at 9:29 PM

LOL congratulations on the hat tip!

carbon_footprint on October 31, 2008 at 9:29 PM

That video is too short to prove the anchor’s point. If he walked out, they should have shown it.

Nice catch William. God willing, that will be one of the final video clips we see of that miserable, corrupt traitor.

ManlyRash on October 31, 2008 at 9:33 PM

This guy is such a limp-wristed pantie-waist. He had no problem with the media when he was smearing honorable soldiers. or his constituents in a good part of the state.

Gutless wonder.

Murtha time is passed. Somebody help this man go home and stay.

You’re getting away from the real issues that these ignorant rednecks care about.

Time to redeploy to the retirement home, congressman.

thirtypundit on October 31, 2008 at 9:36 PM

Just like Ed Schultz walking off of Fox and Friends. Just like Biden on the Orlando local news. These libs, they can’t stand to be challenged. How DARE you?!

Tony737 on October 31, 2008 at 9:36 PM

VanPalin … awesome name!

Tony737 on October 31, 2008 at 9:36 PM

What a jackass. Retire, Murtha, you knee jerk pansy.

Metro on October 31, 2008 at 9:36 PM

Character is not an issue?

Well… hopefully not an issue if you don’t have any.

Sucks to be you Murtha.

Hog Wild on October 31, 2008 at 9:39 PM

Schweinchen Murtha deserves to go down. If he had any shame, or grace, he’d retire.

Entelechy on October 31, 2008 at 9:39 PM

He acts like he owes you NOTHING. These people think they are God almighty.

Time to correct that problem.

Bicyea on October 31, 2008 at 9:41 PM

Whaaa!

CP on October 31, 2008 at 9:42 PM

If John “back bacon” Murtha is not fish in a barrel on 4 Nov 08 then we have lost more than we could have ever imagined. I for one will actively explore punching out of the twisted and spent hulk of America before it augers into the footnotes of revisionist history.

GW or the media…who do you blame?

dmann on October 31, 2008 at 9:43 PM

It is very hard to understand why the polls show a close race. Martha Murtha is the biggest crap weasel east of Nancy Pelosi. He deserves to go down, big time in disgrace.

JellyToast on October 31, 2008 at 9:48 PM

Murtha: “I’m sorry. I’m sorry that you are too ignorant to ask a coherent question that I have a boilerplate answer for. It’s obvious your parents came from a shallow gene pool. Good day.”

Dr.Cwac.Cwac on October 31, 2008 at 9:49 PM

I refuse to talk about anything except the “real” issues….

Because I’m a damn Democrat and the moral, character, patriotic and loyalty to this country issues don’t apply to me.

I can pal with Code Pink biyatches who gave 600,000 smackers to the families of the Fallujah insurgents.

I can call my Semper Fi Do or Die Marine buddies “Cold Blooded Murderers” and get a pass in the press.

I can call my constituents racists and rednecks and damn well get away with it, because the MSM has better things to do.

Like try to see one more time if they can’t dig up some dirt on Cindy McCain adopted daughter or Sarah Palins Downs Syndrome son.

Oh, BTW, I can certainly count on the MSM to make sense out of my stupid comment about redeploying troops from Iraq to Okinawa while they attack that bitch from Alaska about not answering questions about the Bush Doctrine and not saying which newspapers she reads. Because that is so much more telling.

WOW!!!,..right out of the obama play book!!!

BTW,..just posted on Drudge:ZOGBY SATURDAY: McCain outpolled Obama 48% to 47% in Friday poll. He is beginning to cut into Obama’s lead among independents, is now leading among blue collar voters, has strengthened his lead among investors and among men, and is walloping Obama among NASCAR voters. Joe the Plumber may get his license after all..

That’s only a 1-day poll lead in a rolling poll…and it’s ZOGBY. However, I’m a poll whore so I’ll take it.

ManlyRash on October 31, 2008 at 10:15 PM

Acolyte, there will be no tears from one such as her, rather it will be recriminations against the racist nation that she has never been less proud of.

You can feel it coming. Arm yourselves.

Bishop on October 31, 2008 at 10:18 PM

It’s another poll. Free yourselves, ignore this positive one so you can dismiss the negative ones when they unfold. All else is night, fog and lies. Why should polls be looked to as trustworthy?

BL@KBIRD on October 31, 2008 at 10:18 PM

I used to think I’d enjoy Chris Matthew’s and Olbermann’s tears. Now I want to see the Fox News AllStars cry. How sad is that?

You know what’s happening at Odimwit HQ right about now?

Crying, shouting, physical attacks, fainting, whining, raging.

This wasn’t supposed to happen, Oloser was supposed to be coasting right now, denying interviews and doing whatever it takes not to say something stupid.

Hee hee hee heeeeeee…I love it.

Worth reposting on this thread:

I want only her tears. I want to savor them, one drop at a time, savor the salty bitterness, the wretched torment. I want to laugh as I drop each of those tears on my tongue and delight in her misery as I imagine the sweet, sweet gasping sound of her anguished sobbing.

In an extremely ironic sense you are correct; because we possess the audacity of selflessness, the sin of historical perspective, the inclusion of all willing to defend integrity, and above all the desire to conform ourselves to the disciplines defined by honor. We created the path to our defeat, well said Manly, cue up Alanis Morrsette!

Poet, cast your eyes on the prize, and spurn the martyrdom. Martyrdom is UnAmerican. Teach and inspire with the gift of your words. Lift a victim from victimhood, and don’t quit until you have done so to the satisfaction of the 12-man jury within your own conscience!

Murtha thinks the press should just be stenographers, and write down his talking points.

I mean, who really think John Murtha has anything interesting to say about health care, the economy or education? The man is a crook and a hack. He has survived by bringing home the pork, and has not done a damn thing about health care, the economy or education in the decades he has been in Congress.
