Hugh Hewitt on The Situation Room:
"No, that’s not right, because talk radio, when you look at Rush, at Sean, at myself, at Laura Ingraham, Michael Medved, Dennis Prager, we all conduct ourselves appropriately on the air, or the FCC will smack — smite — smack us down.—So, I think what we have got is basically a monopoly on responsible new media on the center-right side, and talk radio is responsible new media, even though that fever swamp on the left, the Michael Moore-disease-ridden Democrats on the left, they don’t want to admit that, so they won’t. But, in fact, talk radio is quite responsible."
The "fever swamp" isn’t on the left, Hugh, and Wolf, you let that one pass? There are plenty of easy targets that you could have pointed to, but that’s why Jane asked us to help you out, since perhaps you’re a bit too busy to notice the flaming pile of crap that exists out there on the right.
The racist, sexist bloviating Neal Boortz sounds like a font of responsibility when he tosses his hat into the ring with commentary like this, about Rep. Cynthia McKinney (D-GA). These statements about her hairdo (which as far as most reasonable people can ascertain, has nothing to do with the facts of her run-in with the Capitol Hill police), sound quite responsible:
"She looks like a ghetto slut."
"It looks like an explosion in a Brillo pad factory. It’s just hideous. To me, that hairstyle just shows contempt for — no, it’s not an Afro. I mean, no, it just shows contempt for the position that she holds."
"She looks like Tina Turner peeing on an electric fence."
I thought that the FCC might like to hear about this new level of responsible broadcasting from Mr. Boortz. It only took an avalanche of emails and phone calls to finally make him apologize for his verbal diarrhea on Monday. That’s a rare occasion on the right. You know, I kind of like that term swamp. I actually use it when referring to The Free Republic, that bastion of freedom, patriotism and mainstream conservative thought. I frequently turn to this desperate, filthy blogosphere underbelly of The Republican Base to find the level of responsibility that you declare exists only in the left’s fever swamp. Read friends, this statement by the founder of the Free Republic, Jim Robinson; he says he keeps his swamp tidy, clean and you’ll only see intellectually pure responsible conservative discourse.
We oppose all forms of liberalism, socialism, fascism, pacifism, totalitarianism, anarchism, government enforced atheism, abortionism, feminism, homosexualism, racism, wacko environmentalism, judicial activism, etc.
Remember Wolf, this is the Republican base. As Coretta Scott King was being laid to rest, the Rev. Dr. Joseph Lowery said this (Think Progress):
We know now there were no weapons of mass destruction over there. [Standing Ovation] But Coretta knew and we know that there are weapons of misdirection right down here. Millions without health insurance. Poverty abounds. For war billions more but no more for the poor.
The moment those words left Lowery’s lips, you knew it was only a matter of time before the Swift Boating would begin, and the responsible thoughts of the Freepi were released almost immediately.
Lowery : Blah Blah blah bash bash bash bull bull bull Dubya : What a maroon. Laura : Please let me kick his ass. Please OK – give it your best
"I would like another roll with dinner please."
"Two classy people sitting behind a pile of trash."
Colonel Sanders has been palling around with George Hamilton.
Lowery: And yesim, we’s be black and we’s be proud. We’s for the gubmit but not Bush’s gubmit. Bush’s gubmit is against us black peoples…
"psssst, look Laura, his trousers move when he’s talking out his arse."
"They’re running this funeral like a PLANTATION!!! And you KNOW what I’m talkin’ about!!!"
W: "What’s that old saying, ‘Better to be thought a complete race baiting moron than open your mouth and remove all doubt.’"

"Psst…Laura, you sure that ain’t Looter Guy?"
Un-by-God-believable! These people have no shame at all! To take a funeral that was supposed to celebrate a life and turn it into a political hack job has got to the lowest act possible. I hope that black america sees this and knows just how disgusting their leaders are.
Wolf, what did you think about the 500,000 people who recently marched in L.A. over Fed immigration legislation? Did you know that I found some stimulating, responsible discussion in Freeperland that you might like brought to your attention.
Actual Freeper Quotes™
Encircle the rally. Move the herd back to Mexico.
One thing about being packed in like that in a crowd, ya never know what kind of communicable diseases you are exposing yourself too.
Boy that’s alot of American jobs, food stamps, welfare, housing, while their pay goes to mexico.
It’s officially an invasion now. They’re getting snippy.
If Americans can’t see that we are being invaded, they’re either blind or don’t care anymore.
They weren’t rallying for immigrant rights. They were rallying in favor of anarchy.
They don’t vote. It doesn’t matter if 100 million showed up they don’t vote. they are not citizens they don’t vote. It doesn’t matter. And there are a lot more than those that want reform.
dont be so confident they dont vote
Today we walked out of a restaurant after a non-speaking illegal came to our table before we did we all told the manager we will NOT be back till all illegals are GONE out of this restaurant!
We called our lawn service and told them they better not dare send any illegals to work on our lawn.
We called a foundation company and told them we better not see any illegals working on our foundation or they are so out of here.
Americans need to take a stand and if you go to a hotel and you see a non english speaking person cleaning your room callthe manager and front desk and have them remove the person immediately.
Take a stand, boycott all mexican destinations like cozymel.
Sexual deviants would love for us to become part of Mexico. That way they can watch donkey sex shows and sleep with 12 year old prostitutes.
But why stop there, I can take you over to Jonah Goldberg’s slice o’ mommy heaven, Lucianne.com, where we can peruse the wisdom, the reasonable take on immigration from the right:
Close the borders
Round up the ones that are already here
Check to see if any of them speak English
Separate them from non-speaking English
If the English-speaking ones have no criminal records, if they have been here for a good couple of years, keep them and send the rest back.
Always remember #1…they are here illegally & are criminals.
Cowardly politcians are elected by cowardly people who didn’t do what they should have done at the ballot box. RINO’s are always attacked for listening to what their constituents want instead of what those who didn’t vote for them want. Senator Dole tried to establish an English only amendement and received virtually no support from the populace when it might have had a chance of passing. Tancredo’s firm stance has helps him get reelected by his constituency who faces the problem of illegals daily. As long as it didn’t reach some neighborhoods, too many people just looked the other way while gains were made. Quit blaming only politicians and business and look at what a submissive public allowed to happen. They made the mess and are now grumbling because there is no instantaneous solution.
Perhaps all of this is true. I doubt it, but perhaps. There ARE some things we can do, and do now.
– resurrect the English-only legislation/Amendment. NO ballots (except Braille) in any language but English. NO bi-lingual education anywhere. English immersion (and yes, it works).
– any illegal found here is deported IMMEDIATELY. As in, the very same day, out of the country within 12 hours of apprehension. We can have hearing officers working the night shift. And, we bill the nation of origin for every penny associated with the case. Be creative and employ nasty bill collectors.
— anyone found here illegally can NEVER apply for citizenship or lawful status. We don’t want lawbreakers here.
— immediate federal legislation defining the 14th Amendment along its original lines, which were not intended to grant immediate citizenship to children of invaders.
– build the wall
– ban the Mexican flag
– tell Mexico to shut up and butt out.
Move to a consumption tax and these suckers would be paying for their illegal activities while not reaping the benefits.
Any "plan" that leaves thousands of illegal aliens in our prison system while we pay for them is not a plan. They all need to be deported.
Aaiiii!!! YOU’VE BEEN HIT BY THE

Sorry they have no insurance…heh, found this in the comments section of another site.
The only solution is a wall, followed by stiff enforcement. It may take twenty years to have every illegal alien self-deport, but that’s a change in the right direction.
And, I hate to tell you, but the 14th Amendment has been *interpreted by judicial activists* to grant birthright citizenship to the children born of invaders. That was by no means the original intent, and in fact the legislative history of the debates makes it clear that such was specifically not intended. In other words, it would appear that part of the issue is an outgrowth of our long plague of worthless judges. Claiming birthright citizenship for the children of illegals is much like the guy who stole your car claiming that since he’s in it, it must be his, and in fact has always been his.
So Wolf, I hope that this little primer on the fever swamp on the other side of town helps you out the next time you have a winger guest on the air who tries to pull a Hugh on you.
