Skip to comments.Classless Alan Colmes: OMG, the Palins Eloped!
Posted on 08/31/2008 3:57:05 PM PDT by chessplayer
Alan Colmes has been on a downward spiral for the ages since John McCain introduced Sarah Palin as his presumptive Vice-Presidential nominee.
Fellow NewsBuster Warner Todd Huston caught Colmes scraping bottom at his Liberaland web site last night, as the lefty talker and Sean Hannity piñata asked "Did Palin Take Proper Pre-Natal Care?" in connection with Palin's pregnancy and childbirth earlier this year. Trig Palin was born with Down's Syndrome on April 18.
whiff of sanity appears to have prevailed, as the entry is now empty. Also not present: an apology. (Update, 3:30 p.m. -- Here's Colmes's "apology." You can decide whether it's adequate or simply blame-shifting.)
But apparently Colmes has no problem with this entry he put up on Friday afternoon about the circumstances surrounding Todd and Sarah Palin's wedding (full entry follows; links were in original):

Oh pleaseeee I hear that reason why they elope is because their fishing season wasn’t that good to cut cost they decided to have small wedding
Governor Palin has already said that they eloped because of the enormous costs of staging a wedding. In Alaska, those costs are even higher. Besides, I think that Sarah and Todd were also trying to cut down on the size of their “carbon footprint.” Take that and shove it Colmes.
And how does Mrs. Colmes feel about all those on the down low?
Yes, in an attempt to shock social conservatives against her....LOL! Colmes is absolutely clueless.
Well, of course Colmes would consider it scandalous that a couple would elope if they found out they were pregnant. The only proper choice that he would support would be aborting the ‘inconvient’ child...
That’s pretty funny esp. when you consider half the liberals out there have children (via whatever means) and never got married. But as always for them it’s different.
Well, Alan, Sarah Palin is no John Edwards, that’s for sure.
Yeah, the majority of Americans could never identify with someone who was challenged to afford the cost of a traditional wedding. < /sarcasm >
Colmes is grasping at air here. Empty balloon, basically.
If the left ever had the moral high ground, they lost it long ago.
Oh please, we’re not living prior to the 50’s. Eloping no longer has the past connotation of what a couple does to get married without their parents permission.
Good grief. I thought pre-marital, extra-marital and whatever sex was a staple of the RAT environment. As if Sarah and Todd (or anybody else for that matter) would be the first people in history to have anticipated their marriage vows.
Alan Colmes is so unattractive and so clueless--who does he have kin to him in media who gave him a job--or who did he blackmail into giving him one?
I have never been able to understand how he got on with Hannity. However, since he is the ditzy lib, he does make a good foil for handsome Hannity, the (mostly) conservative.
Ya mean he’s married??
Colmes is a candidate for a post natal abortion. Unfortuantely were you to stick a syringe into the back of his skull and suck you would find “Nothing”. Can’t extract brain matter if there isn’t any!!!
Alan Colmes is an ugly piece of garbage, and stupid, to boot.
We are ashamed to call him part of the Jewish community.
Even if that is true, SO WHAT.
I would bet dollars to donuts quite a few of firstborns are born "early" under nine months after the wedding
Enough people need to raise the roof at FOX until Colmes is fired. I am sick of him thinking he can say anything and get away with it. He reached my limit when he said Palin’s neglect was the cause of the baby having Down’s. I am going to call, email, and fax FOX on Tuesday when all the big shots are back in the office and I hope others will too. I have just had enough of Colmes- if he was trashing Obama or Biden in the same way he would be history, and everyone knows it- we just need to stand together against these people and not allow them to get away with it.
Colmes’ “apology” and the comments that follow. The first one is anti-Palin but the rest really jump on Colmes.
I could care less if she was pregnant when she got married or not- just not my business- and I can’t imagine that would change anyone’s mind one way or the other. This is just trash talk and needs to stop.
But you'll tell me Obama is the best man for president?!
OK. Let us say that Sarah was pregnant with a child before she was married.
What did she do? Did she abort, offer the child for adoption? In fact, she married Todd and raised this first child and had four others. Are the five children in need of Social Services attention? We know the answer to that one.
God bless Sarah and Todd Palin and their wonderful family!
The anti-family libs are grasping at straws.
He does look like the Cryptkeeper! lol
I think this shows how desperate the liberals are.
They know she could help McCain win 48 or 50 states and they’re grasping at straws.
Oh for Heavens sake, everyone knows the first child doesn't take nine months.
I see Skeletor is up to his old tricks again. He is truly a flatliner.
Who gives a damn what Ferret Face thinks! He is one of the most dishonest scumbags the libs have next to Obermann!
I think Colmes knows the liberals are headed for a big election humiliation.
It's hilarious to see them tsk tsk-ing at things they don't REALLY care about.
Oh yes, he’s married. He’s married to Dr. Jocelyn Crowley, an associate professor in the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, at Rutgers University, and she does women’s studies!
They probably sit down at night and giggle about raising people’s taxes. But here is the kicker. Jocelyn is Monica Crowley’s sister, who often sits in for Sean Hannity.
Now THEY must have an interesting family Thanksgiving dinner.
Alan Colmes is a affrimative action hire at fox. I think he is trying to make his bones on Sarah. Maybe the dems will let him interview Biden but I doubt Soros will allow that. I would suggest Colmes the odds of a 43 woman ahve a child with down syndrome are 1 in 35. Your even hated by liberals, who have interview Obama, Clinton or even Joe Biden,
Tell you what, Alan. I’ll send 100 dollars to Obama/Biden if you’ll tell Sarah Palin’s husband face-to-face that he fathered a bastard child.
This is actually a bit better than the typical lib, "If I offended anyone, I'm sorry."
You got that right. Colmes is unrepentant. He shows he has a lot of class - too bad it is the type you would rather not associate. I would really rather not have these shrill critics as neighbors and certainly not as friends.
I think what they (MSM diptards) are really afraid of is not necessarily that Palin could not step in if McCain could not continue and or finish his term. I think they see the groundswell of support for this hot outsider that electrifies the GOP base and because of her age could be the female Reagan for the 21st century. Only time will tell but I think Palin could be a serious contender. A successful term as VP and a one term McCain could position her pretty well.
You got that right.
“We are ashamed to call him part of the Jewish community.”
No need to feel ashamed, he’s only a JINO.
They’ve been married 20 years, right?
And their oldest son is how old?
Renfield came up with the quote and Sourcery did the graphic. I LOVE IT!
Alan Colmes is a worthless pile of excrement. Period.
However, the last time I checked, this was still America, and he has the right to "say anything and get away with it". I don't wanna be the speech police, the thought police, or any other kinda police. Let the dufus talk. It is like using a "straight thumbs" grip while firing a revolver (OUCH!, DAMN!)...it is a self correcting problem. These morons will pay a price for their hatefulness towards Gov. Palin, but just like with Imus, I don't want their freedom to say stupid stuff infringed.
By all means, I believe we should make our feelings known to FOX SNOOZE, but I want them to make the decision to fire his stupid ass all by themselves.
I’m with you. What are the addresses to use?
Plus, this question: what does St. Bill O’Reilly, who likes to trash FR to show how fair he is, think of his colleague’s comments? Will he have the guts that Sarah Palin would have to demand that Colmes be fired for this despicable trash?
In fact, if true, I'd love to see Sarah stand up with an evil grin on her face and admit it.
Love young (or lust) is seldom denied and since they married and obviously did well for the first as well as all their other offspring, it's nobody's business but theirs.
On the other thread there were several FReepers who admit to the same er... indiscretion. I am sure they were properly admonished by their pastor and are good with the Lord now.
Cool. Please do something to make the text stand out better — the obama wants to kill babies and raise taxes slogan bleeds into the background.
An awesome billboard!
Me neither, not an issue. Were that all families appeared that happy together. That is what counts. Could have just as easily been me (and a whole lot of others) :-). Just didn't happen that way, so what?
Add my $100.
