Skip to comments.Palin Smearing Baltimore Sun Columnist Whines Readers Being Mean to Her
Posted on 09/06/2008 7:13:09 AM PDT by mathprof
Susan Reimer, columnist for the Baltimore Sun, is shocked, SHOCKED I tell you, that people took exception to her tactless bashing of Governor Sarah Palin in her September 1 column, "A woman -- but why this woman?" In fact, Reimer is so upset that people where exercised enough to drop her a note, give her a call, or write an email about her baseless smearing of Palin that she says in her September 5 column that she feels "frightened." Do you want some cheese and crackers to go with that whine, Reimer?
On Monday, I wrote a column criticizing the McCain campaign for what I saw as a cynical attempt to gather in unhappy women voters by naming Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin his vice presidential candidate and for exploiting the poignant story of her youngest child to appease the Republican Party's pro-life base... And then the storm began.
Reimer was shocked to find that her substance free, lie filled attack on John McCain and Governor Sarah Palin generated "More than 8,200 comments were posted to the column on The Baltimore Sun's Web site. I received more than 700 personal e-mails and about 50 phone calls."
Even worse for Reimer, her gutter scraping column was read by Rush Limbaugh and Brit Hume and was linked by Drudge as an example of the outrageous treatment that Palin has gotten at the hands of feminist media elites like Reimer.

Here's the one whining about its reception: http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/nation/bal-te.reimer05sep05,0,3664358.column
Here's my advice to this whining "columnist":
Ok Baltimore Freepers, let’s stop buying this newspaper. Let’s hit them where it hurts...the wallet!
You want to get hate mail, Susan? Argue that Palin is trotting out her Down Syndrome baby to “look good” to those Christian rubes.
When the Obamaniacs swamp radio call in shows or political discussion sites, the media calls it enthusiasm. When the right does it, the media calls the police.
Actually, we need to find every speck of dirt on this whiner and show her what it means to be smeared.
Note to Newsbusters, I think you need a dash between Palin and smearing to avoid confusion.
Is Susan a dog and just jealous of a pretty, smart, sassy, strong mom who is also a very effective leader? Sometimes women are their own worst enemies.

We stopped buying it long before. The Sun is so desperate and disorganized that they often deliver it anyways. I read her column in one of our free deliveries.
They just don’t get it

Confidential to Susan Reimer: they aren’t just readers, they are customers, and they have the right to choose or not choose your product. That doesn’t mean you have to pander or even be balanced, just that you have to be fair.
Does anyone have Sue Whiner’s e-mail address????
I think we should further “frighten” her more with our outside the Washington Beltway comments to her.
Keep pouring that whine Reimer; I’ll cut the cheese.
Did she also mention how Obama's selection of Biden is a cynical attempt to attract white men over the age of 50?
