Skip to comments.You Stay Classy, Alan Colmes
Posted on 09/01/2008 1:35:56 AM PDT by Delacon
Alan Colmes of Hannity and Colmes wrote a post so inappropriate and offensive the Kos Kiddies would be envious. He accused Governor Palin of not taking enough care of Trig when he was an unborn baby. A man who has no problem with a woman killing her unborn baby through an abortion actually has the nerve to ask if Governor Palin took too great a risk with her pregnancy:
Rogers Cadenhead gives the timeline associated with the birth of her newest child. She had a speech in Dallas and, even after the water broke, continued with her activities, and then boarded a plane for home. She did consult by phone with her doctor.
Still, a Sacramento, Calif., obstetrician who is active in the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, said when a pregnant woman's water breaks, she should go right to the hospital because of the risk of infection. That's true even if the amniotic fluid simply leaks out, said Dr. Laurie Gregg.
In case he takes it down in an effort to hide his idiocy, I captured a screen shot for everyone to see. Click the image to enlarge.
Update By Jay Tea: Yup, as Kim predicted, it's gone down the memory hole. Apparently it was causing some "technical issues" for the site, so it got deleted. Congrats to Kim for having the foresight to get that screen capture. But if some more technically adept person than me can pull up a copy of the article in its entirety, we'll be more than proud to post it here at Wizbang.
In my career at Wizbang, I have unpublished exactly one article (not counting duplicates and other actual errors), and that was it was in incredibly poor taste. I didn't just disappear it, though; I posted another article stating it had been done, why, and apologized for it.
Publishing, then deleting, articles that later prove embarrassing is one of the most cowardly things that can be done in the blogosphere. It's also one of the dumbest, because the internet NEVER FORGETS ANYTHING. It only emphasizes the wrongness of the author who does it. In this case, Colmes gets to add "coward" to the list of epithets that people can toss at him over his initial article.
We don't do that here. It's not just a matter of principle for me, but sheer practicality -- as shown here, it doesn't work. It never works. I learned that when Kos issued his famous "screw them" piece on the American contractors murdered and left displayed in Iraq, then tried to Control-Z his way out of it. Several years later, it's still what he is best known for to a lot of people.
My apologies, Kim, for hijacking your article here. I probably should have made it a separate posting. But once I started, I just started going and going (as is my wont). I'll shut up now.
That was especially bad coming from him. What was he thinking?
The left have decided that their new strategic plan is to attack the children of the VP nominee.
Downs syndrome is genetic. The extra chromosome is fixed at conception. Nothing after conceptions can impact it.
Of course the entire left thinks that an unborn baby is just a lump of Play Doh that has no shape or features until it is the process of passing out of the birth canal.
Of course it does have a head at that point or else they wouldn't know where to sink the scissors. Alan has in aces the particular deformity common to most liberals. Rectocranial inversion.
Thinking? We're talking Alan Colmes here - the man is lucky if he has two brain cells close enough together in his skull to fire an impulse across the lone synapse!
To put it another way - the reason Allan's neck is so skinny is that he doesn't have to hold up much weight above his shoulders.
“That was especially bad coming from him. What was he thinking?”
The natural inclination of any pundit to appear reasonable and intelligent was overcome by his innate liberal desire to do anything to get Obama elected.
Maybe, but the low life nature of the shot was not what I expect from him.
People who confess to not believing in God do not have the value system it takes to be overly classy.
Alan Colmes has been tweaked to months now that Conservatives have criticized Michelle R. Obama. He feels that it is inappropriate. Attacks against family members ought to be forbidden. But she is campaigning for her husband, making politically charged speeches and statements, thus Conservatives pile on the criticism.
Of course, if Todd Palin said something political and made campaign speeches in place of his wife, the Libs would be all over him with blistering, nasty criticism.
I’m really saddened by all this. I have to get out of here, the freerepublic is going crazy over this, every single thread is Palin this and Palin that, it seems a little sick?
I guess human genetics is above Alan Colmes pay grade.
And to think these types of people think they know when human life begins.
Aren’t they the “experts” on everything scientific from global warming to stem cell research? Aren’t they the same one who are always saying how ignorant Republicans are about science?
The poster child for the Obamanation, Colmes may
energize the conservative base.
Time after time on Hannity I hear Alan parrot the Liberal talking points and it really does not affect his image as a decent person. This does.
I feel sorry for Colmes.
Night after night he has to deal with looking and sounding like an idiot next to Sean Hannity.
He has to defend and promote points that are usually Un-American against Hannity’s points that are very American
It is easy to see how all that could make him finally snap and go all in and a liberal hatemonger.
(Im really saddened by all this. I have to get out of here, the freerepublic is going crazy over this, every single thread is Palin this and Palin that, it seems a little sick?)
Really? Has OBAMA, day and night 7 days a week on TV print and airwaves for the past 4 months been okay for you though?
Is Americans having something to feel good about right now a bad thing?
Obviously Alan Colmes was dropped on his head at birth.
I went to his website yesterday, and I agree with you completely.
Alan comes off like a total moron.
and that is as proximate as he has come to female genitalia since
Someone else ask Hannity why this no-class, low-class blovicator is part of the same show.
Colmes should hang his head in shame.
Probably once, accidentally.
I suspect his parents may have thrown him to the ground repeatedly after that.
I think the Libs are worried about Palin although they deny it.
Don’t let the door hit you on the way out. Maybe you can start some ‘all Mitt all the time’ forum of your own for your fellow sycophants to frequent. Should be a real barrel of laughs there.
Thinking? Just like the rest of his ilk, he's not thinking. He's panicking. And he's in a rage because McCain stepped all over the day after glow of the messiah's great speech.
Well, he is funny-looking...;-)
Maybe the scissors were too short when Alan was birthed.
...”Alan must have been thoroughly doped up the day they covered genetics in Middle School health”...
He knows better. Leftists seem to just make it up as they go. Hedonism is scraping the bottom of the barrel days. At one time we had a book by the title of THE RISE AND FALL OF COMPLEX SOCIETIES and I have recently thought about that as mountain loads of information hit us each day with so little time to think or sift through even a small about of it. This leaves fertile ground for the word merchants on TV to just throw anything they want out there for consumption. They know that scandalous fiction is red meat for the uneducated and bored. However, Alan has put his foot in it this time. By the way, does he have kids?
Alan Colmes is the VILEST of the VILE??? This is what VILE people do, and he does it WELL!
Colmes wasn’t born-he was spawned.
...”Im really saddened by all this. I have to get out of here, the freerepublic is going crazy over this, every single thread is Palin this and Palin that, it seems a little sick?”...
Please don’t feel that way. Sarah is someone whose life and actions fits her claims about who she is and that is so refreshing that the “people” rejoice. I was desperate for John McCain to choose Sarah but I never thought he would..She is a pioneer woman, she is a Rennaisance woman, she is not an elitist, a liar, a Washington insider, or a pawn for a corrupt political party..Perhaps her greatest strength is her Motherhood, for she has become a tigress as she works for those children and all children. I believe Sarah took a look at the drift of our society toward socialism and communism and decided to do something about it. The first order of business was to clean up corruption and she did, whether those involved were Democrats or Republicans. Does anyone here think that is not the dream of every honest person in American who loves freedom?? Just watch the the decadent leftist fringe go after those children..They know the strength which lies there. This past weekend, everyone I know and I have friends of all persuasions, is intrigued and excited about Sarah. That kind of joy and hope for change cannot be denied. It just spills over. I know many Democrats and Republicans and none of them were excited about the field until Sarah entered on Friday. Her candidacy is unprecendented in the Republican party..Just pray for everyone and enjoy!
I'm going to barf now!
Fine, see ya later then. We are all excited about the wonderful upturn in the election news and we’re going to talk about it. :D
The first time I ever saw him on TV I actually made a little noise of dismay. I thought he looked like a monster and I was shocked. I’ve gotten used to the look of him now, but it took me a while.
Because hospitals are such clean places? She'd already delivered four kids, I think she understands the process.
My wife (a physician) stayed at home after going into labor simply because she preferred NOT being at the hospital. God bless her, she was at 9mm when we arrived with the second one.
And does Allen think that anything that the woman does after conception determines whether the child has Downs? And Allen is backing a candidate that would have gladly had the baby's head crushed and limbs dismembered at the exact same point in time.
LOL Good One.
Instead of complaining, do something about it. I assume you know how to post a thread. Find something that interests you and that you believe would be of interest to others and post it.
Yep, very worried.
She can relate to ordinary people. Hugh Hewitt had a very good column about how and why she is able to do what Obama and Biden cannot. Very enlightening.
ever see colmes with that evil smile on his face when he sticks are-you-still-beating-your-wife-talking-point skewers
into guests from the so-called right-wing?
as a human he should know better and as a liberal he knows only hard-core, low-down, unprincipled opposition while espousing left-wing “compassion”.
Alan is a great spokesman for he liberal cause.
Want to know how the rats think? tune in.

What ever happened to a WOMAN’s “RIGHT TO CHOOSE?”
Try leaving here and going to Digg. Not much class at all. The top stories there are atrocious.
Not in this lifetime!
Catch his radio program. HE IS A LIBERAL HATEMONGER! No snapping to it.
Should I post a thread about Celtic Music to sooth your hurt feelings?
Colmes should be fired from Fox over this.
Rush just won his bet with Mr. Snerdly! In case you missed it, Rush bet Snerdly that the left would attack Palin for her Down’s Syndrome baby. Snerdly thought that was too low even for a Democrat. Snerdly was wrong.
I would like to see Hannity just pick up and walk off in disgust!
