GLENN: So Lee Stranahan wrote Daily Kos--this is on the Huffington Post--Daily Kos embraces the Palin fake pregnancy rumor, but rejects the Edwards story. I love this. It's the whackiest rumor about Sarah Palin or any other politician so far this election. It's making its way through the Internet and, of course, it came from the Daily Kos. Let's hear from the noted reporter, Arc XIX, what is that, Arc 19? Following up on a story by widely respected Inky 99. You know, here's the thing. If you are going to report stories, you should probably go with something a little more credible than Inky 99. Maybe it's just me: Well, Sarah, I'm calling you a liar. And not even a good one. Trig Paxson Van Palin is not your son, he is your grandson and the further forward you come with this revelation to the public, the better.
You know what's really impressive to me is how inconsistent, how inconsistent people like me are being. You know what I mean? Here I'm saying let's not go after these things because there's nothing there, they're discredited. But then I immediately spend so much time on the fake birth certificate of Obama's. Oh, no, wait a minute. That doesn't work. What was it, last Friday somebody called up and said, Glenn, how about his fake birth certificate? And I said, stop with the fake birth certificate. There's nothing there and it discredits you. Did we really, Stu?
STU: Yeah. Remember, that was a couple of weeks ago.
GLENN: We did an argument against the idiots on it?
STU: Yes, disproving some of the ridiculous myths about Obama, that that's not the reason for him not to be President. There's real reasons for him to be President.
GLENN: Okay. So anyway, this is on the Daily Kos from Inky 99 and Arc XIX. The whole story is based on an insulting view of fundamentalist Christians. Listen, this is the Huffington Post. The whole story is based on an insulting view of fundamentalist Christians that they would be so freaked out by the teenage pregnancy that they would have the governor, the most highly visible and public woman in a small fish bowl in Alaska fake a pregnancy to cover up the sins of her daughter Bristol.
First of all, if she's faked it once for her kid, why isn't she faking it a second time? Anybody think of that? Let me ask you this question. Women, can you get all technical with me and tell me how you're five months pregnant when you gave birth to a baby in April? How does that can somebody get all technical with me?
Let's see. It goes on and on and on. Then he says, the irony for me, of course, is that despite making over 50 short political videos with a clear progressive point of view, I was banned on the Daily Kos for saying what seemed reasonable that John Edwards was seen at the Beverly Hilton late at night. To be sure, some on Daily Kos pointed up the numerous problems with the Palin story, but the community in large part embraced it and it is part of a trend. The election hasn't even been won yet and there is already liberal hubris developing. Progressive standard bearers such as the Daily Kos and Keith Olbermann have been showing lines lately listen to this. Again this is from the Huffington Post. Does it sound familiar have been showing signs lately of a nasty tendency towards stifling dissenting opinions and promoting the sorts of crazy rumors usually associated with the right than the real based community. It's not effective, it's not progressive, and it's not good or accurate reflection on Barack Obama or the Democratic party.
Again, does it sound familiar? The Democrats have been hijacked by the uber left. The Democratic party. How many times have I said on this program, Democrats, good Democrats, when are you going to stand up. Good Democrats, when are you going to recognize that you have been hijacked and you are being used by the left and you're about to be discarded? You must grab your party again. How many times have we said that? How many times have we said we are entering a time that if the left, the uber left gets control of congress and they get control of the White House, your point of view is going to be squashed. People like me will not exist.
Here's a guy who is a blogger for the Huffington Post, who they wouldn't let speak out about John Edwards. Remember, that John Edwards story, that wasn't in the mainstream media. Nobody in the media wanted to cover that story because it wasn't relevant, and it was only coming from the blogs. I'm sorry. Wasn't even the blog. It was the National Enquirer. They didn't want to cover it. They sat on that story for over a year.
Has anybody noticed the play on this story? Has anyone noticed the play on this yet? This is everywhere, and it came from Inky 99. It's amazing. The Daily Kos immediately shuts it down on John Edwards. The mainstream media immediately shuts it down on John Edwards. This one, well, we the Atlantic Today is calling for the obstetrician: We want the records, we want them and we want them now. Excuse me? Has anyone yet called for the records on John Edwards' child? Which, of course, isn't his.
