"I'm Sure She Apologizes..."
Television viewers had not played witness to such a scandal since a drunken Groucho Marx on "You Bet Your Life" made "cocksucker" the secret word.
Marcy Wheeler, aka Firedoglake's emptywheel, saying "blow job" to make a good point raised the specter of the "angry liberal blogger" that we'd first heard about 4 years ago after the Washington Post's now-infamous hit piece on the largely-forgotten Maryscott O'Connor.
Note how these MSNBC talking heads are tripping over themselves putting words in Marcy's mouth for using the phrase "blow job." As if what Marcy was saying wasn't an old and oft-reiterated if true sentiment: That Republicans are happy to spend tens of millions of dollars over a five year period over a blow job while blanching about investigating the much more serious crimes of the Bush administration.
Immediately forgotten was Fox "News" contributor and professional assclown Bo Dietl who just two months ago said, "jerkoff" on the air without so much as a word of admonishment from Geraldo Rivera or anyone else.
And anyone who's ever listened to the filth spewed out into the airwaves by the likes of Melanie Morgan, Don Imus, Michael Reagan and other DSM IV chapters come to life can tell you that much more offensive content than the phrase "blow job" gets troweled out without condemnation or even acknowledgment. So stop falling on your fainting couch with the vapors, you hypocritical fucks.
