Mary Mapes Gloats About Pending Obama Victory and Demise of Free Republic
Friday, October 24, 2008 | Kristinn

Posted on 10/24/2008 7:50:22 AM PDT by kristinn

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.

Ha, ha.

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.

If it does come down to this, I'll become a monthly contributor if you can find a "safe harbor" offshore to host the servers.

FR needs to continue despite any of their insane attempts to shut it down.

You've got to understand, deep down she realizes this is her only time to gloat, see, if she truly believed it will happen, she would have the confidence to put off her gratification until after election day.

Ms. Mapes is living in a fantasy world.

Wow, amazing that such an incompetent juvenile would be employed by a serious news organization.

Which is why such news orgs are going out of business.

I’d take this seriously if she had a respectable, ethical, honest, dependable character....BUT SHE DOESN’T.
Hey Mapes, I gotta believe your out there reading these posts....first thing I taught my children is that the most important thing you have is your character. You lose that and you have nobody that can respect you...
GUESS how you’re thought of?....

We won’t go away, but they’ll do their best to make sure we’re not heard from again,

using the government to silence dissenting opinion on the airwaves and the internet.

It’s because their ideology is logically indefensible, and whenever they enter the arena of ideas, they get brutally defeated.

Lord, God, if there are any redeemable cells in her body or being, then by whatever miraculous fiery furnace, bring her to abject utter wholesale confession and repentance and spare her from hell.

Otherwise, Lord, may she reap what she has sown with 100 fold interest on top of it and that speedily, dramatically, vividly as a glaring example of the consequences of outrageous hypocrisy; treason; rebellion and evil.

In Jesus’ Name.

Let any who feel led to pray similarly agree as led.

Mary Mapes?? That bitter and twisted leftist hack who tried to steal the 2004 election with her monstrous hoax?

Any outlet that airs or publishes her is automatically discredited.

DFU SONGS | 11-2005 | Lyrics, Doug from Upland

Posted on 11/09/2005 9:47:07 PM PST by doug from upland

<

MIDI - MORE THAN A FEELING

She woke up one morning and her job was gone
Suits in the boardroom said go away
The docs were phony the FReepers showed
For her and Dan it's a bad hair day

(musical break)

She was sent reeling...she tried to hurt Dubya
Her dirty dealing...had been stopped, and she started to cry
But watch Mary Mapes...still telling lies

(musical break)

So many people she had deceived
Hatred of Bush made them blind with rage
She's claiming that she...did nothing wrong
And she is stuck on the same old page

On the same old page

(musical break)

She was sent reeling...she had tried to hurt Dubya
Her dirty dealing...had been stopped, and she started to cry
