Esteemed And Judicious Colleagues

November 11, 2008

Here’s Michael Barone, whom Jeff Jacoby referred to as “esteemed and judicious:”

“Barone was speaking at the Palmer House Hilton in Chicago, to the 121st annual meeting of the National Association of State Universities and Land Grant Colleges, which calls itself the nation’s oldest higher-education association.
‘The liberal media attacked Sarah Palin because she did not abort her Down syndrome baby,’ Barone said, according to accounts by attendees. ‘They wanted her to kill that child. … I’m talking about my media colleagues with whom I’ve worked for 35 years.’
Barone, a popular speaker on the paid lecture circuit, is a senior writer for U.S. News & World Report and principal coauthor of ‘The Almanac of American Politics.’
About 500 people were in the room, and some walked out.
Barone did not dispute the accounts of his remarks. Asked about the comments, Barone said in an e-mail that he “was attempting to be humorous and, as many in public do, went over the line.”

HAHAHAHAHA!!!! Wait a minute, I don’t get it…how is this funny, again? How is this not sick?

Remember that these are exactly the same people who tell us that Joe Biden is gaffe-prone and John Kerry needs to apologize for offending our troops.
