It's true. I can't recall any prominent conservative pundit or blogger ever going after who Rachel Maddow chooses to sleep with. None. Sure, she's a habitual liar who goes out of her way to smear FOX News and conservatives in general and yeah she looks like a dude (something she's admitted too several times on her own), but going after her choice to be a lesbian? I feel confident in saying that most conservatives could care less. So yeah, it's shocking to even me that she'd play the gay card even if it does go with the liberal doctrine to play the victim (esp. when your back is against the wall). But seriously, if Stanley's Crouch's girlfriend has to resort to making up stuff when her critics fairly call out her lies and smear tactics, then she should go back to Air America or whatever-it-is the hell she came from:
The folks at MSNBC should be deeply embarrassed and ashamed of their prime time commentator Rachel Maddow.
Having been exposed by Politifact for lying last week about Wisconsin having a budget surplus, Maddow on Thursday hypocritically defended herself by playing nine cherry-picked words from the broadcast in question while disgracefully calling her critics homophobes....
But also pathetic was Maddow playing the gay card.
During her segment Thursday, Maddow indirectly referred to an article at Johnny Dollar's website concerning herself and Fox News's Shepard Smith.
She went on to say (with a picture of JohnnyDollar.us on the screen):
MADDOW: Because this particular burst of anger is a pure right wing Internet phenomenon, if you have seen anything about this, you have probably seen it retweeted at some point as Rachel Maddow is wrong and she looks like a man. Also favorite Rachel Maddow is wrong and also gay.
You know, just because you don’t like the way it sounds when I say it or you don’t like my hair cut, or you don’t like that I’m gay, it does not mean that what we say is not true. [...]
And if you squint a little bit it is true, I do sometimes look like a dude, and I am definitely gay.If you look at Johnny Dollar's piece or mine, you will see no references to her appearance or sexual orientation.
I don't care what political commentators look like or who they choose to couple with. For Maddow to use the gay card to evoke sympathy from her viewers, as if the only reason she's being criticized is because of her appearance or sexual orientation, is disgraceful.
