So?

Do we expect sports announcers to be as good as the athletes they report on?

I see Subby is a renown expert on That's right headline writing's.

You know, I'll be anything other than amused about this when NewsBusters writes the same article about Rush Limbaugh talking about marriage, or Newt Gingrich, or any of the other dozens of Republicans who think they can talk about the sanctity of marriage after multiple divorces and adultery and everything.
 
2012-05-13 08:40:26 PM  
Well subby he wasn't being hypocritical and talking about how marriages are sacred and that we should define them and one man and one woman.

It's not like he's on his fourth marriage and screaming about an attack on the holy institution.

there are no such thing as "expert" on commentary shows anymore. All it takes to be an expert is to be high profile and have an opionion. That is IT.

I think there's a big difference between former athletes talking about current athletes and being a goddamned hypocrite.

Now for a rebuttal we present the GOP's experts on marriage, Newt Gingrich and Rush Limbaugh.

No, in New York that was a handful of Democratic state senators who were keeping marriage rights jammed up. It was four Republican senators who did the right thing last year.

Spitzer was a sanctimonious phony, and not just for cracking down on prostitution rings while patronizing prostitutes himself.

This is one is actually an upgrade. The last one looked like a dog with his head cocked to the side trying to make sense of the scene before him. This new just looks like a six year old smiling in his first suit.

But Subby's probably no match for the writers of headlines such as "Pricipal . Caught sayof school that has stoped Handstandsing " See, told ya so" Is He dead or not. CNN Says yes. St. Pete Times Looking for chads -OR- "hello, I am write single to salute and wait for answer again"" or "YOU: gun may have for me, BUT I : HABE PIZZA FOR YOU HA"...

I don't give Spitzer a pass on anything. He was tough on crime while committing crimes.

"That right, Elliot Spitzer."
 
2012-05-13 10:10:20 PM  
Hey Noel Sheppard, Eliot Spitzer isn't saying that marriage is sacrosanct, he's saying that idea of "sacred" marriage is irrelevant if two people love each other. Why are you acting like he's some sort of hypocrite?

Hey Noel Sheppard, what's your take on guys like Newt Gingrich lecturing gays on the sanctity of marriage, which is actually hypocritical?

Pretty much. That's why the cable talk shows trot out the same ten people over and over again. Apparently, being an expert gives you a lot of free time to jump in front of cameras.

Somebody in the comments has already come up with an attempt as lessening the cognitive dissonance:

Submitted by motherbelt on Sun, 05/13/2012 - 8:45pm.
Rush talks about liberal plans to institute gay "marriage" but he does not talk about "the sanctity of marriage."
I haven't heard Newt talk about it either.
If you have an example of either, please share it.
Or are you just saying it wouldn't be any different?

It appears to not exist. That's hilarious. i love when right-wing sites have to lock down their registration because they can't handle opposing views. The left-wing sites mostly seem to have no problem with right-wingers making fools out of themselves on their sites.

It's better than one I saw on townhall today. That guy was argueing that we shouldn't allow gays to get married because if kids can have two daddies, then children will get confused about which parent to get a gift on mother's day. Not a joke. Because obviously, civil rights are outweighed by the sanctity of holidays made up by Hallmark, and the inability of people to look two months further int he calendar and find father's day.

Wait, Eliot Spitzer shouldn't go on a "serious political talk show" and discuss same sex marriage because hooker?

But Newt "I got the kid's from my first wife to talk trash about my second wife to discredit her talking about my third wife" Gingrich and Rush "Women who use birth control are sluts" Limbaugh and a multitude of equally slimy Republicans getting on their high horse and weighing in on the pro-bigot side is totally legit?

Oh, Nutclusters you never fail to bring the derp but that noted you have herped up a real doozy this time!

fta: Maybe ABC should have invited one of Spitzer's former prostitutes Ashley Dupre on to offer her views on marriage as well.

Yeah, that actually would have been interesting, I bet someone who's been inside the sex trade industry would have some unique insights into the sanct...

Oh wait, you were being sarcastic.

Never mind.

There's a difference between an expert and a pundit, and the media much prefers a pundit these days, as they give a better soundbite.
 
2012-05-13 10:27:27 PM  
I'm pretty much not going to listen to anything a hypocrite like Spitzer has to say. He may have some valid points but they are all lost to me as all I can hear is hooker, hooker, hooker when he speaks.

Hypocrites are at the top of my list of pieces of shiat.

last I checked, prostitution was still illegal.

Eliot Spitzer is still married to his wife of 25 years, Silda.

/And speaking of sanctity -- is having sex outside of marriage against Jewish law? I seem to remember several patriarchs in the Old Testament who either had multiple wives or had sex outside of marriage without negative consequences.
 
2012-05-13 10:44:43 PM  
Wouldn't working at the level of government that actually issues marriage contracts, um, actually make him an expert on what he's commenting on? It does seem like a Mayor's bailiwick to a large extent.
 
2012-05-13 10:47:36 PM  
If anything, a known philanderer can make a more sound rebuttal to the silly and outdated notion of traditional heterosexual marriage than others.
 
2012-05-13 10:51:20 PM  
What's a "renown"? Subby's headline suggests he's an expert in fame, which...I suppose is true.
