Alan Colmes Mocks Santorum For Bringing Dead Son Home (video)
RealClearPolitics ^ | January 2, 2012 | RealClearPolitics

Posted on 01/02/2012 3:12:20 PM PST by i88schwartz

"Once they get a hold of the crazy things he's said and done like taking his two-hour old baby who died right after childbirth home and played with it for a couple of hours so his other children would know that the child was real," Democratic commentator Alan Colmes said on FOX News today. "That's a cheap shot, Alan. To say it's crazy, something that's that personal and hurtful as losing a child and to mock it like that is beyond the pale and beneath you," Colmes' conservative opponent Rich Lowry said after the personal attack. “I even think some of the dastardly characters we have in the main stream media are not going to go as low as you just have Alan,” National Review editor Rick Lowry said later in the conversation.

I wonder what he and his sister in law, the conservative babe, Monica Crowley talk about during Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner....

Bringing a dead baby home is not weird IMHO.

Playing with it would be. Although I imagine that was not the case. Unless having the baby in clothes, wrapped in a blanket, and holding it and/or rocking it in a crib is considered “playing” by the angry idiot Colmes. (And while perhaps not my style - I could see all of the above as part of the healing process.)

Alan Colmes is a jackass.

Sadly, in the 19th century, people took photos of their dead babies to try to remember and memorialize them.

I used to kind of like Alan even though he was on the left. I now know that he is one of the sickest most despicable people on the planet.

If he did do that, it’s a little creepy. But I still say Colmes is a real scuzzbag for mocking him in this manner.

What a sick, callous statement to make about someone who’s lost a infant. But you’d have to be human or have half a brain to actually feel any remorse for being such a jackass.

Colmes exhibits a progressive neurosis since losing the gig with his name in the title. It seems Hannity help keep Colmes tethered somewhat to reality.

Colmes is ugly, inside and out. Every precious baby deserves to be revered and loved and seen by the family, even if the baby went back to heaven right away. The way colmes mocked it makes me want to scream.

With all the things wrong with colmes he is lucky his mother let him survive. What an evil person to mock a family who went through the worst a family can go through. I can honestly say that I hate this bastard.

Well, as an Irish-Catholic, I can remember how so many of people during my childhood thought it was weird that we had wakes with the dead body on display. We didn’t think anything of it; in fact, it made us very aware of life and death.

Bringing the child home is actually a pretty considerate thing to do for the family. The siblings had a brother pass and deserved to be with the body for a bit and mourn as a family. This is what people do when the most important things in life come before them. Kudos to the Santorum bunch. God bless them.

You would be wrong. I suppose you think funerals in funeral parlors have always been the case. That would be wrong. Funerals for the deceased have historically been held in the home. I am betting you are one of those that walks into a funeral home, takes a 1 second look, and scatters like a rat back to your home. I am also betting that as a young boy or girl, nobody that loved you said it was ok to touch the hand of a favored aunt or uncle or even mother/father/brother sister in the coffin did they. You are in the minority buddy and probably the saddest minority. I am betting you have yet to lose a single loved one.

What the hell is that?

I’ve seen photos of poor little babies dead of cholera (at a museum in New Orleans) propped up in bed, photographed by their parents as a remembrance.

Every century has its eccentricities and rituals. One can only imagine what future generations will think of us!

Alan Colmes is just about the worst scuzz ball on TV — right up there with Bob Beckel. I don’t know why Fox keeps them around.

I think Colmes makes up much of what he says just for shock value. Nobody could really think that way. I hate it when Fox puts him on opposite Monica Crowley like they are trying to provoke a family fight. It seems like a big set up to me, and I just change the channel.

As expected, the beat down on Santorum has begun.

“There, they spent several hours kissing and cuddling Gabriel with his three siblings, ages 6, 4 and 1 1/2. They took photos, sang lullabies in his ear and held a private Mass.”

has turned into “played with it”.

I thought kids were off limits, Alan?....I guess dead kids are fair game, eh?

Do you/we know that was the case or was the event taken out of context and embellished by the MSM as they are wont to do?

Back in the 1990s Colmes said on his radio show, “A worm has more of a right to life than a human fetus”. I heard it.

Colmes has no idea what the Santorum family did when they took Gabriel’s body home. Cuddling and rocking a dead baby is not “playng” with the child. It was a way of acknowledging Gabriel’s life, however brief, and of loving him after waiting for him for so long.

Colmes is a despicable mouth frothing idiot.

Anyone who has seen the film “Gone with the Wind” remembers the terrible scene where Scarlett goes into the parlor to see her mother laid out. Thankfully, I grew up with the balls (you should pardon the expression) to look at death squarely in the face. When my father died 3 years ago, I tucked a love letter into his pocket in the funeral parlor. There is NOTHING to fear from the dead.

Yep.

And it’s the type of thing that will form the “whispered” narrative is he was the nominee. Urban legends of what other out of the ordinary things they do over at his house.

Allan is a fraud. He was criticized for not being tough on Hannity & Colmes, but he was just making a lot of money doing that show. He knew that if he said the things he says now on Fox News that Hannity would destroy him, and he wanted conservatives to like him. Colmes tried to act like he condemned liberals and conservatives on Hannity and Colmes, who said outrageous things, but he’s a fruad. I remember he also said he was friendly with Rush on H & C, but he’s attacked Rush since leaving H & C.

As the title says...”Electroplating the dead.”

There are lots of things that went on in the past that we don’t know about! Ever hear how Evita sat at dinner with Peron, for years after she had died?

Colmes also said the reason Trig was born with DS was because Sarah held off giving birth after her water broke.

The guy is a stupid ass, and my aplogies to asses.

I was talking to my grandmother about this the other day and she reminded me of my great grandmother’s story about her parents doing the same. Seems that it was once quite common especially in the days when most children were born in the home.

My great grandmothers sister died when she was 3 years old and her parents brought her all the way home from Ann Arbor to northern Michigan.

First, did that really happen?
“...PLAYED WITH IT for a couple of hours so his other children would know that the child was real.”

I don’t believe it.

If not true, then Colmes should have his POLITICAL balls cutoff...

My wife miscarried with our third child during the third month of her pregnancy, we went to the hospital and carried the three month old fetus to the hospital in a plastic container so they could determine what was the cause of the miscarriage.
Colmes is, to use the liberals’ ultimates insult, an latent homosexual.

We know a friend who redid her mom’s makeup at the funeral parlor before allowing her to be viewed.

What Santorum did was an act of love. This child was born and died, and for Colmes to even bring this up in such a fashion is evil evil evil.

Yes.

A good wake reminds you of the history of the person and his/her influence on our lives. It is also important to see a dead person to be able to say your goodbyes.

I don’t know how old the other children were at the time, but being around their parents while their parents were with them alone, to explain the death of the baby, would be an important thing for the family. Frankly, this applies to any member of the family, too, in the event that someone passes.

I put roses next to my dad's hands while laying in the casket, and my brothers put pictures next to him.
The way the Santorum's mourned their beloved son coming home from the hospital is the way people mourned a long time ago, what's wrong with that ? as long as the doctors and health department gives their ok.
There were not hospitals like we have it today many centuries ago.
People were born at home, and sometimes died at home.

Piers whatever praises Santorum for doing a great thing, but still calls it “controversial” like the liberal punk he is.

I guess now when your baby dies you’re supposed to throw them away. Incredible for anyone to even question Rick and his wife on this.
