Mapes: 'Ha-Ha: Right-Wing Bloggers Don't Matter Any More'
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 10/24/2008 10:04:26 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

Mary Mapes is in gloat over-drive. Dan Rather's erstwhile producer, the woman behind Memogate, is beside herself with joy at what she sees as the impending death of the conservative blogosphere.

It's her expectation that Barack Obama will win the presidency that has Mapes so hopeful. Annotated excerpts from her HuffPo column, The Monster is Dying [emphasis added]:

* This whole thing is starting to feel a lot like the climactic death scene at the end of a 1950s monster movie. * Palin actually resembles that old monster movie staple -- the beautiful-but-bookish brunette working as a lab assistant for the older scientist whose irresponsible experiments lead to tragedy.

Gee, with one or two emendations, couldn't that be a description of . . . Mapes herself?

This place was born thanks to klinton. If Obama wins we will only become stronger.

My gosh where do these people get these descriptions and “fantasies”. I mean that is not even intelligent to come up with some 1950 movie with the disgusting descriptions of McCain and Palin. I think this is worse than some of the stuff they have called Palin. This is so low that I am stunned.

Hardly, the right wing blogsphere will grow in such proportions in the near term after the election that Mapes won’t know what happened to her fantasy views.

OK, that’s enough Mary, Back to work.

As, I was saying, I’ll have a Whopper with cheese, fries and a medium Coke.

And tell Rather in the back there to make sure the fries are hot this time.

She’s wrong. I see the leftwing politico sights and lefty bloggers dropping out in droves. One well known lefty site is up for sale now.

Most of those sites began in 2001 to counter the right.

They think they’ve won.

Conservatives will get stronger.

She lost her job due to her lies, but the AcornObanuts are cheating with impunity and getting away with it, so she feels discriminated against.

Schadenfreude in an Obama victory, if it happens, won’t restore her job or credibility. McCain was never popular at FR. He is a lesser of two evils choice.

What a self absorbed twit.  Whether McCain/Palin or Obama/Biden win, right wing
forum participants will have plenty to say, and plenty of people seeking truth who
read their comments.  Very few movements in history have lost no battles.  If we
lose this one, we come back stronger next time.  Bring it on Mapes.

BTW: Mapes, you're going to be very unhappy on November the 5th, 2008.

    Would some of you like to be a part of the Final 300?

Impending death? Here's to your ignorance, Mary. It's almost as great as that foot in your mouth.

An Obama Presidency will only breathe new life into Conservatism, in blogs, outside the beltway, and (best of all) within the Republican Party/RNC itself. It was primarily the Party that has doused water on the conservative flame. But we're about to erupt from a glowing faint ember into a f****** 5 alarm fire. And the RNC party hacks will be the first to get burned. They'll jump from the ship *(buying us bouyancy), and we will get under way again. Mark my words.

I loved reading those excerpts from Mape’s book where she tells just how distressed she was her 60 Minutes fiction fell flat on it’s face. She went from pure joy over sticking it to Bush to pure terror at being found out. I am so pleased that she told us how she felt so we could gloat.

It’s HAVE FUN WITH MARY DAY!

Go to Amazon:
http://www.amazon.com/Truth-Duty-Press-President-Privilege/dp/0312354118/

and review her book. Right now there are 66 reviews split down the line giving her a 3 star rating. Let’s see if we can make that 1 star by the end of the day.

The comments on the original article are scary. They wonder where the 48% of conservatives are coming from. What ARE we thinking? How stupid can we be not to see that the "one' is a centrist?

I wonder where those people get their news. Oh wait....the MSM.
