Skip to comments.Must watch: “Daily Show” destroys liberal columnist over “civility” hypocrisy

An instant classic, possibly even superior to their interview with that imbecile in San Francisco who wants to ban Happy Meals. Let me tweak the headline, though, since its not quite accurate. Better version: Liberal columnist destroys herself as Daily Show cameras roll. Its Froma Harrop, whom youll remember from her column in August comparing tea partiers unfavorably to terrorists who want to blow up the power grid. How they managed to pull off this goof without her wising up, I simply cant imagine. She must have wised up but, for reasons known only to her, decided to play along with the humiliation. (Being a good sport, maybe?) Either that or what were seeing here is actually a tour de force of editing that turned what was a routine interview into a surreal expose of oblivious hypocrisy. No one be this clueless for real. Can they?
Besides, people like Harrop and the DNCs current talking-points robot typically dont do what they do because theyre blind to their own demagoguery, I think. To believe that is to let them off the hook for the cynical choice theyve consciously made to smear their opponents for political advantage. Theres plenty of paranoia involved, no doubt, but its all in service to an agenda. If Harrop was genuinely this myopic, you could almost forgive her for it. Almost.
And just where is this so called clip hiding?
Thank you, Sir.
Indeed, I only wish I could tell if it was for real or just good editing
Excellent. I’m sure some liberal will find a way to call this racist.
I know it’s probably some good editing, but DAMN!!!!
“Fatuous, smug and stupid is no way to go through life, Ma’am.”
She’s clearly smirking along with the scripted gag.
She is smirking, but I don’t think a script is driving her, I think she is clueless.
Different interpretations. To me it just looks like classic bad acting on her part.
Dude! I did not know that Seveus Snape had a sister!
If you want to deceive yourself into thinking that she did this to herself and her organization on purpose and was the eager lead in her own self destruction and discarding of the groups credibility, then go ahead.
And if you want to believe she sat there clueless through the gag of his popping back into his seat 15 times, go ahead.
You can defend this leftist whack case all you want, but the point of the video is that she IS clueless.
