RUSH LIMBAUGH: “For liberals to now claim that the atmosphere is somehow more violently anti-Obama is simply preposterous.” Limbaugh also said Smith was “whining and moaning and complaining about emails.” After stating that he, too, got “vile, sick emails,” Limbaugh said, “Shep, you got nothing on anybody out there.”
Atlas Shrugs blogger PAMELA GELLER: Shep, don’t preach to us about anger. This from a guy who hit a reporter with his car as she saved a parking space. He was arrested for it too. (Above photo is Smith’s mugshot) Yup. And who can forget his leftist asshattery last month, when Fox anchor Shepard Smith, on a post-broadcast Webcast, lost it when discussing his opposition to waterboarding, etc — bellowing: “We are America!” (slamming the table) “I don’t give a rat’s ass if it helps. We are AMERICA! We do not f—ing torture!!” He has got to go.
WorldNetDaily’s JOE KOVACS: Ironically, Smith himself allegedly engaged in activity some might deem questionable. As WND previously reported, during the presidential election fiasco in November 2000, Smith was arrested at the Florida Capitol for allegedly driving his Mazda Millenia into another reporter who was standing in a parking space she attempted to save for a friend. The victim, freelance journalist Maureen Walsh of Tallahassee, was hospitalized and released later the same day with bruises on her knees and legs.
On Michelle Malkin’s blog, HotAir – ALLAHPUNDIT: hamfisted attempt to draw a straight line between dopey ‘Hussein’ invective and the sort of decades-long dementia displayed by the Jew-loathing nut who pulled a shotgun in the Holocaust Museum today. (And who, by the way, hated neoconservatives generally and the GOP’s last two nominees for president in particular.) I don’t know how else to read this clip except as Shep warning America that his own viewership is teeming with would-be presidential assassins. If he truly believes that, why doesn’t he quit? How can his conscience stand it?
