Mark Halperin: Yeah, Liberals Have Smeared Conservatives With The Arizona Shooting But Pointing That Out Only Makes Things Worse

First Halperin said the GOP should stop fighting the Ground Zero Mosque because it was hurting Democrats. Then he said Obama was going to need some "luck" like a terrorist attack (score!) to get his popularity back.

Now this idiot says conservatives defending themselves only makes our political climate worse.

“I just want to single out one thing. I think the media and the politicians have behaved pretty well so far. I’m worried about the anger of the right-wing commentariat,” Halperin said. “Fox and George Will and other conservatives are in some cases justifiably upset at liberals, but they’re turning this back into the standard operating procedure of ‘all this is war and fodder for content’ rather than trying to bring the country together.”

“Wait a second,” Scarborough responded. “I think they would say that you have that backwards, that a shooting was turned into fodder to attack conservatives.”

Halperin: “And, I already made that criticism, as well. they’re right, but rather than seizing on it and turning the other cheek, they’re back at their war stations. that’s not going to help us.”

Look, I can't prove this but someone who writes for a rival of Time magazine, where Halperin works, says there's a chance Halperin might have killed even more dogs than Michael Vick and more people than Ted Bundy. Now should these blatant falsehoods start to spread, I'd really hate it if Halperin defended himself against these baseless charges. If he did, it might turn people against Vick as he enters contract negotiations and it might bring up some bad memories for the families of Bundy's victims. So I'm sure Mark will just sit back while his good name is besmirched by liars trying to sell more copies of his competitor's product. He's just that kind of guy.

Can you imagine for a moment anyone in the press saying, "Hey Dems, sure the conservatives are lying about you and trying to paint you as monsters but take one for the team...lie back and think of England!"?*

Just when you think liberals can not get any more shameless with this story a new one comes along. Of course, we won't have full stupidity closure until we hear from hysterical Frank Rich.

*Thanks to DaveInTexas for that. He's our go to guy for old references.
