Ideology aside, I gotta say these guys lack any sense of proportion.

The quote:

"Bozell is a hater, and he also, like, has a long, sordid history, like, hating Karl Rove, too. So he has, like, a weird personal axe to grind," Collegio said.

If anything, he should be fired for being a professional political spokesman and talking like a 15-year old girl.

I do get a little "mimbo" vibe off of him.

Trump bashed the veteran Republican consultant in a series of messages Thursday, calling him a "total loser" and encouraging people not to donate to Rove-controlled groups.

If we're going to play this "fire the people who say mean things game," does that mean we can finally and poetically fire Trump?

Mr. Bozell is what we call in our movement a "legacy."

legacy, nepotism...to-MAY-to, to-MAH-to

Seriously?  Fire that guy because he was a meanie to the guy with the famous family?  Pathetic.

Demonizing the poor = ok
Demonizing homosexuals = ok
Demonizing women = ok
Demonizing minorities = ok
Demonizing ignorant tea party members = not ok

If your base is motivated by greed and bigotry the only way you can get elected is to prey upon the ignorant.

Anyone should be fired for calling someone a "hater". Especially if they use the phrase "hates on" in conjunction with it.

He was fired from Trump Tower in 2012

I didn't know Brent Bozell had a Family Legacy thing going in conservative circles.

I always thought he was the bastard offspring of The Chuch Lady and Mr. Weasley from the Harry Potter movies.

//yep, I'm a hater.

It probably flew over Bozells head but when you mention Bill Buckley as a relative people will look at you and think huh, Bill was actually a smart and polite fellow. Who the hell are you?
 
2013-02-08 12:12:00 PM
I find it telling, that when they try to defend Brent Bozell (whoever the hell he is), they can only point to the work done by his father and two uncles.  Why are they bothering to defend a guy when they can't name a single thing he himself has done?

And would be considered a filthy communist sympathizing socialist liberal RINO today.

Also going to echo that if these bloggers had half a brain they would demand that he be fired for writing like a 13 year old girl, not due to he be hatin.

We, the free men and women of this great nation, affirm everyone's natural right to speak their mind, but we cannot and will not abide the unjust, personal broadside your aide Jonathan Collegio leveled against a man whose family has dedicated itself to advancing the cause of liberty for over half a century.

Ha ha oh wow.

Bozell runs the so-called " Media Research Center". They produce a reliable greenlight for the Fark Politics tab called "Newsbusters."

In a letter, a number of conservative activists -- including Mark Levin and Tony Perkins -- called on American Crossroads president and CEO Steven Law to fire Collegio.
"We, the free men and women of this great nation, affirm everyone's natural right to speak their mind, but we cannot and will not abide the unjust, personal broadside your aide Jonathan Collegio leveled against a man whose family has dedicated itself to advancing the cause of liberty for over half a century," they wrote in a letter.

Yeah, that's exactly the point where I stopped reading.

The Republican brand is dying. I think it is looking more and more likely that they will be re-branded. The Conservative Party or that they are replaced by something called that. Anyway all the Republicans I know deny being Republicans and call themselves Libertarians, Conservatives or Independents. They get mad when you point out they are spouting Republican talking points.

They have to. At this point they are on a slow slide to obscurity. Maybe they will pull a few more tricks with gerrymandering and other crap, but the actual numbers keep dwindling. There are only so many stunts they can pull at this point short of kidnapping the opposing candidate until after the polls close.

He's also the head of the PTC. So not only does he have the "it's the LIEberal lamestream media" angle covered, he's also got the "think of the children" beat as well.

Which makes him, for my money, the biggest pants-crapping baby in the US. A truly pathetic person.

Advancing the cause of liberty by demanding that someone be fired for practicing their freedom of speech in a public forum.
