Remember when American comedians went after the powerful in an effort to bring them down to earth with the sharp satire of accountability? Today, they appear to only protect the powerful. Well, unless the powerful aren't liberal enough. As things stand now you have the likes of David Letterman and Louis C.K. savaging Sarah Palin's family, SNL terrified to rip Obama with any real zeal, cartoonists proclaiming President Teleprompter too cool to mock, and Will Ferrell films flaking for corrupt public unions, all in an effort to protect the corrupted leftist elitists currently holding power.
It's like we now live in an alternate universe you might call ... North Korea.
In desperate Hail Mary moves to protect Obama and Democrats from what's looking like a November rout, three of the left's most beloved Palace Guards have just upped their game considerably. Bill Maher's now openly blackmailing Delaware Republican Senate Candidate Christine O'Donnell, threatening a weekly drip-drip-drip of videos he thinks will ruin her candidacy unless she agrees to appear on his show - which is where he'll really pull out the stops to finally win that Emmy by attempting to destroy her:
On Friday, Maher released on his new HBO show, "Real Time," an unaired clip of O'Donnell admitting to a brief dalliance with witchcraft.
"I dabbled into witchcraft - I never joined a coven. But I did, I did. I dabbled into witchcraft. I hung around people who were doing these things. I'm not making this stuff up. I know what they told me they do," she said.
"One of my first dates with a witch was on a satanic altar, and I didn't know it. I mean, there's little blood there and stuff like that," she said. "We went to a movie and then had a midnight picnic on a satanic altar."
O'Donnell appeared on the political talk show on 22 different episodes, and Maher has said he will air a clip of O'Donnell every week until she agrees to appear on his show.
"It's like a hostage crisis," Maher said. "Every week you don't show up, I'm going to throw another body out."
Does anyone find a young naive girl (or woman) under the influence of a guy she digs temporarily taking a wrong turn into witchcraft even a tenth as creepy as a grown man taking his children into Reverend Jeremiah Wright's church? How about Ms. O'Donnell's opponent dabbling, as an adult, in Marxism?
Meanwhile over at Comedy Central, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert have just announced dueling Beck-like rallies. Obviously their real goal is to mock the hundreds of thousands of everyday people who gathered last month to worship God and love their country. What better way to make average Americans who dare to oppose socialism feel like freaks than with big rallies called "Keep Fear Alive" and "The Million Moderate March" (I guess Stewart won't be attending that one).
And yet, as NewsBusters reports, it sure isn't going to be moderates organizing Stewart's "Million Moderates March." Meet Stewart's very own Clintonistas:
We've discovered that a permit application was submitted for the Oct. 30 rally rivalry, on Sept. 8 to the National Park Service by Minassian Media, Comedy Central and Chris Wayne and Associates.
Craig Minassian is a former Clinton administration press aide who is now a consultant to Comedy Central. Wayne is a former Clinton White House event organizer who works on large-scale media events and promotions.
Undoubtedly, the only outcome any of this will achieve will be to further energize those of us backing O'Donnell and the Tea Party. The beauty of this election cycle is that the left has had no Republican leader or figurehead to marginalize and demonize, forcing them to attack and Alinsky the voters directly. For some reason, these ethereal idiots still haven't figured out that is why their poll numbers and futures are circling closer and closer to the drain.
Not sure who the genius was who sent out the talking points to Obama, Reid, Pelosi, and their MSM/Hollywood minions suggesting that a good campaign slogan might be: "We're Superior To You Racists, So Vote For Us" - but I'm sure glad they did.
This is one racist extremist who can't wait to vote... How about you racist extremists? Do Maher, Stewart, and Colbert make you feel all awkward and embarrassed in your shameful love for the Constitution, or will you risk their withering disapproval and turn out in droves November 2nd?
