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
"Got any doughnuts?"
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?
I love this pic...where can i get it to post to my web page??
And tell the ADVERTISERS why!
I watched Sarah Palin’s speech again on YouTube last night. Good Lord! She takes no prisoners. Sarah will do just fine handling the anti-American left.
Wonder who she’s voting for or ever voted for? But hey, here fellow DUers loved it.
Pray for W, McCuda and Our Troops
The media won’t learn. They’ll just think they’re being picked on. Write a hit piece and get hit. Then whine about it.
(Except to the closeout sale at Lane Bryant...)
/MSM treatment of Palin mode>
Lame stream media.
I am one of those that she is whining about. Oh freaking well, talk crap and it gets shoved right back at ya!
Go here for the “Official Democratic Party Seal”
Nice! The same thing happens in my home town. The local newspaper, which actually has the word ‘demo-rat” in its title (how subtle can one be), delivers free issues to my doorstep in the hopes I will buy a subscription.
The whining, cowardly left is a bunch of gutter rats. Two-faced, hypocrites who can dish it out, but these weaklings cannot take it.
Criminal wimps of the MSM.
I went to Google, then used the ‘Images’ tab, and searched: “Symbol of Democratic Party.”
You may have to get permission from one of the websites that has it - I don’t know who first created it, but copyright laws might apply.
Good luck! :)
Oh, make no mistake. The feminist left hates Gov. Palin precisely because she’s gorgeous. All that political stuff is secondary.
The hussy can dish it out, but she sure can't take it...! What about all the nasty things that have been said about Palin, her children, and her personal appearance(!?!?)?
Eight thousand people responded?
And Palin McCain are finding enormous crowds where ever they go. That makes me think the polling is undercounting the support McCain has. They are showing it about 50-50, but I’m suspecting this is a runaway train. McCain and Palin are running away with this thing.
Good for you! They need to learn that words have consequences.
God, this guy eviscerated this reimer chic. What a smack down!! Har Har!!!
I would call the ads and say if you continue to try and sell your products in this rag, I will buy at another business that doesn't advertize in that paper.
I saw where a car dealer made an offer of $5,000.00 for an ad that cost him 25,000.oo last year and they took it.
LET ‘EM WHINE !!! It’s proof positive that they have nothing of substance to attack.
If you go here you can send her an email about her column.
Stopped buying it about 15 years ago. I've had about 4 opportunities in that time period wherein I received a phone call solicitation from them and was able to tell them why I consider it unworthy to even line a birdcage. Not sure how you tell potential advertisers themselves, other than not to subscribe.
You know, whatever happens in November, this will be the most entertaining election I have ever been part of. The MSM is having a serious breakdown. They know it and much to there chagrin, everybody else knows it too. Thank you MSM!! Your arrogance, smugness, & pretentiousness is biting you right in the ass!!!
A stout, reasonably well-groomed, middle-aged woman. Married with two kids, one in college and one a Naval Academy grad.
It’s funny how these older women with reasonably decent family lives (this lady, Hanna Rosin, Peggy Noonan) are going totally buggy about Sarah Palin. It makes me wonder if they might have aborted Down’s Syndome babies.
Susan Reimer has been a columnist for The Sun since July 1993 when, after 14 years covering sports, she was asked to write about life as a wife and the working mother of school-aged children. Her column appears on Sundays and Tuesdays.
A collection of work, "Motherhood is a Contact Sport," was published in May, 1998.
Susan was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pa., and attended Ohio University, where she earned a degree in journalism.
After working at the Associated Press wire service, the Pittsburgh Press and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, and spending six months traveling around the country, Susan was hired by The Sun in 1979 as one of the first full-time women sportswriters in the country.
In that capacity, she covered the range of major sporting events from the Triple Crown of horse racing to the Americas Cup of yachting. She was reporting on the National Football League Colts when they departed for Indianapolis in 1984, just a month after her first child was born.
When her daughter arrived in 1986, Susan returned to work part-time and quit traveling. She became an editor at The Sun and helped the paper co-ordinate coverage of major events, including the Olympics.
Susan was winner in 2003 of the prestigious National Headliner Award for her column. Susan has also won the Vivian Castleberry Award for her writing about the lives of women and the MD-DC Press Association and the A. D. Emmart Memorial Prize for writing in the humanities for a story about the nature of forgiveness.
She lives in Annapolis with her husband, Gary Mihoces, a sportswriter for USA Today, and her two children: Joseph, a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy and a Second Lieutenant in the Marine Corps, and Jessica, a graduate of Annapolis High School who attends Penn State University.
The only noteworthy accomplishment is that her son is a Marine.
Well, she’s no Helen Thomas but she’s no Sarahcuda, either.
I think that more than anything, the feminist left hates her for not even considering an abortion of any of her children. But yes, they hate true femininity. They hate themselves and all of the natural behaviors that they fight to suppress.
Note to Newsbusters, I think you need a dash between Palin and smearing to avoid confusion.
Yes, I thought at first too that it was Palin who was doing the smearing.
