Kirsten Powers Challenges Sean Hannity’s Claim That Liberals Get Away With Name-Calling
Mediaite ^ | 8/25/11 | Frances Martel

Posted on 08/25/2011 8:25:38 AM PDT by Nachum

The D.C. area earthquake caused a huge scare in some of the major political centers of the nation, and, Sean Hannity argued, that “crisis” has already been adopted as a talking point by liberals to call for more spending on infrastructure. Citing Rahm Emanuel’s famous “never let a crisis go to waste” quote, Hannity and panelist Mercedes Viana Schlapp challenged Kirsten Powers to explain where the infrastructure came from and dispute the dubious claim that Democrats “get away with” more name-calling than Republicans. Hannity began the segment on the infrastructure point, which Powers explained

I cannot watch clueless Hannity (arguing with clueless liberals) reading his script, the only show more boring than his is that new show that replaced Glenn Beck, called ‘The Five’, double gag.

Think Elizabeth Hasselbeck.... duh...

Powers has but a single useful thing to offer society, and it cannot be shown on national television.

She is a smug, annoying little drone. Her eye rolling is the worst. At least the other liberal moron contributors, the two black women usually on, one skinny, one chubby are full on drones, dead behind the eyes racists Obama worshiping devotees. I want this Kirsten Powers to have a Micheal Kingsley moment on FOX live election night, her babbling out sentence fragments as dreams of her upper west side liberal Nirvana dies a decided painful death. The kind of moment that leaves no room for any doubt in her mind that she is outlier, as are her white wine sipping, John Stewart watching friends. That night Metrosexual America DIES!

Add the left’s calling the Tea Party -Tea Baggers.
That one is disgusting. The rest is obnoxious just like those who use name calling to rile up their voters.

Says a lot for the mentality of their base.

Most of the replays of Waters' comments omitted the most distressing part (which was separated by long applause from the previous sentence):

"As far as I'm concerned the Tea Party can go straight to hell...."

(...long pause for applause...)

"...and I plan to help them get there!

Is not the last comment a call for direct violence?

Powers is the ideal liberal to showcase typical liberal dementia.

She demonstrates that it isn’t just the raving moonbats like Matthews, Maddow, Sharpton, Maxine Waters, Maher, etc. who are afflicted. It is easy to write them off as an abnormal fringe element.

But on the surface Kirsten seems like a normal person.
Then she reveals her inate moonbattery confirming that the liberal disconnect with reality is a mainstream liberal characteristic, not something limited to just a few on the outer fringe.

My favorite Kirsten Powers moment is the time she went up against Megyn Kelly in July, 2010 in a debate over the Black Panther voter intimidation case.

The well informed Megyn easily beat the dog snot out of the clueless Kirsten.

Kelly’s closing line: “It would be more helpful for you if the next you come on, you have your facts.”

Thank you. I can't stand Powers and every time I see her, I have to turn the channel. Calling her anything else would be unfitting.
