LA Slimes Headline - Karl Rove: America's Mullah, Ayatollah in the White House
LA Slimes ^ | 10-24-04 | Neal Gabler

[Gabler's tripe not posted]

I can't believe this utter tripe wasn't posted.

The LA Slimes hit a new low with this Sunday Op-Ed piece "gracing" the front page of the Opinion section.

The headline is Rove is America's Mullah. And the inside header is "The Ayatollah in the White House".

This is either 1) calling Roosevelt's top political coordinator a Nazi in the 1944 election -- the Mullahs, such as Omar or those from Iran are universally recognized as the worst of the worst today.

2)If this extreme term isn't meant, then what is it? Is the LA Times smearing Islam? Is that the sort of thing a good liberal inclusive diverse paper wants to do?

All in all this is the lowest of the low. The argument is stupid as well. Just hate mongering.

Gabler is associated with Norman Lear's "think-tank" which is a particularly vile hate mongering group.

They're making the same mistake that Bush 41's team made in '92. Mary Matalin recounts this in her book. She said that the Bush team was so intimidated and freaked out by Carville, about what he would do or was going to do, that they wasted a lot of valuable time and energy focused on him, when they should've been focusing it entirely on Clinton and their campaign. Carville was the tar baby, just as Rove is now to democrats.

This is what passes for political analysis in the LA Times? Perhaps the Times is fielding Neal Gabler as a counterpunch to that fresh new firebrand at the San Francisco Chronicle - Mark Morford. SF and LA have been rivals for ages in just about every category that rivalries can be judged - baseball, entertainment, decrepitude, etc.

If I had to choose between reading Gabler and Morford, I would choose Morford. They are both hacks, but Morford is the pig that wallows in his own filth, while Gabler is the one wearing a dress and seated with the family at dinner and driving away polite company. No wait, if I want to make this analogy proper I have to have Morford in a dress too. Very well, Morford is in his sty, wallowing in his own filth, and staining his dress.

Hey, "LA Slimes," I'd watch what you say...Karl Rove's b-day is December 25th... Yet another reason to be happy he's on our side!!! Seems like we just keep rackin' up the goodness and character points in our column, now doesn't it?

"They" can't STAND it, and you are all correct...it IS fun to watch!

I get this fishwrap delivered to my driveway daily. This is nothing new for them. They are uber-liberal and in the tank for any and all DUmbocrats.

Have you ever heard of Robert Scheer, they don't come any worse that this guy and he's got a regular Tuesday op-ed every week that are so vile I won't even read the headers.

They did everything they could think of to keep Gray Davis in office and it didn't help him a bit.

The L A Slimes is the center of the SoCal kool-aid stand.

The LAtimes is also giving Sunday papers away as the election draws near.

In the last ten days, I've gotten three (so far) mailed solicitations for subscribing - way out here in the Palm Springs area.

I've duly sent them back their postpaid envelopes, with only their junk reinserted.

Exactly! He's awful.

I've been waiting for him to explode like O'Donnel and Donaldson did. He got close to it right after the Swift Vets came on the scene - he was wild-eyed and could barely sit still - totally animated .. it was really funny to watch.

However, I am boycotting FOX (for most of their programming) because they are so slanted to Kerry I can no longer watch. Even the split screens of Bush/Kerry show Kerry within a larger window - while in the Bush window is wording and graphics which hides most of the window and barely allows enough room to show Bush's face. Disgusting!!

Just a thought! Gabler is a regular member of FOX's NewsWatch - maybe we should let Eric know how we feel about Gabler's over the top comments - and how these comments render Gabler UNABLE TO GIVE AN UNBIASED OPINION ON ANYTHING.

"Now tell me again why Fox keeps having Neal Gabler on its shows"

I agree - so I sent Eric a little note:

Dear Eric Burns
cc: Brit Hume

Neal Gabler is a regular member of FOX's NewsWatch.

However, Gabler's over the top comments in the Los Angeles Times regarding Karl Rove render Gabler UNABLE TO GIVE AN UNBIASED OPINION ON ANYTHING.

For Gabler to appear on FOX, and your program in particular, and PRETEND that not only is the media not biased, but he's not biased - it is the HYPOCRITAL STATEMENT OF THE CENTURY.

It bothers me that you think the American public is too stupid to recognize a biased individual when they see and hear one.
