Why were they seeking endorsement from a “alternative” newspaper? Everyone knows that “alternative” is just code speech for liberal rag.

I’d have gotten more irate than that. In fact, I’d have probably asked the little punk to step outside. Either that or on the way out said “I hoped you had fun sucking **** in journalism school”.

And the reporters threw him out.

Liberals, and in particular the liberal media, are taking us to a very bad place.

I just now posted on Mark Levin’s page that we MUST CALL THESE IDIOTS OUT BY NAME! ALWAYS AND WHEREVER POSSIBLE! Cowards and narcissists cannot stand it.

Good job, S-Hound!

The “alternative weeklies” are generally run by progressive hippies and hipsters and given away for free. Many of them fund the operation through sex ads in the back (for “personal connections”, “massages”, and other escort and sex line ads).

Village Voice Media has been implicated numerous times because of underage sex trafficking in their ads.

Reporters don’t have to ask Democrats questions to obtain answers at press conferences. They already collude in private on who will ask which questions about which topics before the Democrats open the floor.

Even the Bengahzi talking points memo makes it clear that the Democrats are colluding with the media on news items and dictating which news items should be buried and what the tone and focus should be.

I can’t believe they all didn’t walk out.

My thought exactly. And that is why Republicans continue to lose, they do not stick together. They all sat there like geldings and thankful for the few crumbs that were being thrown their way.

“I can’t believe they all didn’t walk out.”

Exactly. It tells me exactly who Callahan (sp) is, and who the others are not.

The lady is Dr. Monica Wehby. The man with the glasses iss State Rep. Jason Conger.

We should all ask these two why didn’t they walk out, too?

I think “blah, blah, blah” is acceptable shorthand for the kind of boiler plate rhetoric he was hearing.

Maybe, but it sounds like the reporter didn’t care to actually write down anything the Republicans said because he already knew the Rat would receive the endorsement.

I’ll bet he’d heard it ten times and blah, blah, blah was just shorthand. He’s on Lars Larson all the time; he’s a responsible journalist.

So the whiney babies over at the Willamette weekly posted an article about the event.

http://www.wweek.com/portland/blog-31574-blahblahblahgate_watch_what_really_happened_when_we_kicked_a_us_senate_candidate_out_of_our_offices.html

it really has to be read to be believed. They are proud of how they treated this man.

They are getting hammered in the 700+ comments on their own site.

The candidate who got thrown out obtained the greatest endorsement. Any actual endorsement from this paper would not be helpful.

The reported did what he did because he is an smug, arrogant, condescending asshole liberal.
