Mary Mapes, the former CBS News Sixty Minutes producer who lost her job in the wake of the Rathergate scandal has published an essay entitled The Monster is Dying at the Huffington Post celebrating the pending victory of Barack Obama and the demise of her conservative internet tormenters, including Free Republic.
Mapes likens the domination of conservatives and the McCain-Palin campaign to Fifties sci-fi flicks where the mad scientist gets it in the end but the pretty female assistant survives.
Mapes, who was fired after forged documents were used in a Sixty Minutes hit piece on President George W. Bush in September 2004 in an effort by CBS News to undermine Bush's re-election bid, mocks Republicnas for using "phony" imagery and "bogeymen."
An excerpt from Mapes' gloat-fest:
Americans aren't responding to the old plays -- the fake fears, the faux outrage, the conservatives who yell "Communist" at the news cameras, the pompous right-wing bloggers who once held such sway.
I know all too well how scary and effective these old tactics were in 2004.
Today, they are toothless.
Nothing makes me happier than seeing once swaggering players like Powerline, Free Republic and Little Green Footballs forced onto the sidelines, left to limply watch this campaign pass by like a parade in which they play no meaningful part.
They just don't matter anymore.
Still unemployed, huh, Mary?
She’s such a loyal little Stalinist.
YOU WERE FIRED FOR AIRING FORGED DOCUMENTS SO SHUT UP MARY!!!
(Hi from FR)
Bitter old woman.
What she isn’t that old, oh just bitter.
Homely AND overconfident...
Oh sure, all of us conservatives are just going to go away.
This woman needs to seek professional mental health services immediately.
She's one to talk isn't she?
Wow, she took it personally, didn’t she?
FR needs to continue despite any of their insane attempts to shut it down.
Unhinged.....hardware in pile on the floor.
Hey,Mary,Scotty is still available!
The corrupt little old Dimbohag is glorying in her wishful thinking..Like a con daydreaming at a bench in the exercise yard...or what she’s gonna do when she wins a scratch card lottery.
