One thing about Liveshot, he knows when to back a loser
By Howie Carr | Friday, May 8, 2009 | http://www.bostonherald.com | Columnists

Sen. John Forbes Kerry has spent the week futilely trying to prop up two of his oldest, dearest friends - the Boston Globe and a convicted kiddie-porn pervert named Wade Sanders.

You know about the Globe. Despite Kerry’s Senate hearings into the implosion of arrogant left-wing newspapers, El Globo continues to circle the drain.

You’ve heard less about Wade Sanders, or nothing at all if you rely on the Globe. He’s a liberal and a pervert and a criminal, and he’s been a close pal of John Kerry’s for 43 years. Nothing to see here, folks, move along.

Anyway, Liveshot’s fellow Swift Boat veteran just got 37 months, despite the junior senator’s letter (on stationery with the Capitol on top) to the judge attesting to Sanders’ good character.

Liveshot said he was shocked, shocked to learn of the despicable kiddie-porn charges against Sanders, who at the time of his arrest was a “senior adviser” to the lieutenant governor of California, a Democrat. “I find myself surprised,” Liveshot wrote. “Completely baffled . . .”

And not for the first time, either.

Wade Sanders got bagged with over 600 images of kiddie porn on his computer, and then claimed he was viewing them for research purposes. Stop me if you’ve heard this one before.

Then Kerry’s pal offered an even more hackneyed defense:

Bush did it! That’s right, Sanders told the judge he didn’t start sampling kiddie porn until after he tried to defend Sen. Kerry against the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth. That made him a “target” of those rascally Republicans.

“That experience caused a serious resurgence of the PTSD (post-traumatic stress syndrome) symptoms . . . I encountered (kiddie porn) while accidentally downloading what I thought was a comedy video.”

Alas, as The Wall Street Journal noted, the chronology doesn’t work. The Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, who supposedly drove John Kerry’s pal to kiddie porn, weren’t formed until May 2004. Sanders began downloading his “comedy videos” in November 2003.

Sen. Kerry, it’s too late now to save your perv pal, but maybe, just maybe it’s not too late to throw the Globe a life preserver. Not with another of your windy perorations, but with cash - Mama Tee’s cash. Pinch Sulzberger would unload the rag for a buck.

Liveshot, you could be the next publisher of the Globe. Those Ivy League bust-outs will be lining up to mindlessly do your bidding - just like they’ve been doing for the last 40 years, come to think of it.

BUMP!

raccoonradio,

It is my opinion that this column (as well as any other column by Howie that is not too Massachusetts-centric) deserves its own thread. Howie’s columns are too good to have your threads glossed over by freepers who aren’t familiar with Howie Carr and therefore don’t stop to click on the ‘Howie Carr thread week of...’ titles.

FWIW

FRegards,
LH
