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 it’s not quite accurate. Better version: “Liberal columnist destroys herself as ‘Daily Show’ cameras roll.” It’s Froma Harrop, whom you’ll 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 can’t 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 we’re 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 DNC’s current talking-points robot typically don’t do what they do because they’re blind to their own demagoguery, I think. To believe that is to let them off the hook for the cynical choice they’ve consciously made to smear their opponents for political advantage. There’s plenty of paranoia involved, no doubt, but it’s all in service to an agenda. If Harrop was genuinely this myopic, you could almost forgive her for it. Almost.

KEYWORDS: civility; dailyshow; froma; harrop
I don't generally like the daily show, but this is a great clip exposing liberal hypocrisy.

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.

A little of both, I think. The Daily Show would be slick enough to edit it to their satirical liking, but I also think this bimbo's online rap sheet shows she's plugged into another planet somewhere waaay outside our Solar System........

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

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.

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.
