Salon editor Joan Walsh took a truly disgusting cheap shot at the late Andrew Breitbart Friday.
Appearing on MSNBC's Hardball, Walsh said, "I didn’t think it was possible to get lower than Andrew Breitbart, but his spawn have gotten lower than Andrew Breitbart" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
MICHAEL SMERCONISH, SUBSTITUTE HOST: Here, by the way, you can see the 1991 literary agency photo and description of President Obama unearthed by the folks as I say at Breitbart. You know, Joan Walsh, I have to make this observation. The folks at Breitbart say, “We don’t buy the birther argument. We’re putting this forward because we think it’s evidence of the shoddy job done by the media four years ago to vet the now president.” What do you make of that?
JOAN WALSH, SALON: They’re bottom feeders. I mean, my God, I didn’t think it was possible to get lower than Andrew Breitbart, but his spawn have gotten lower than Andrew Breitbart.
Does Walsh have absolutely no shame or respect for the dead?
Is nothing sacred when it comes to getting Barack Obama reelected?
With shills like Walsh appearing on this farce of a so-called news network, the answers are clearly "No" and "No!"
