Casey vs. Casey

In response to E.J.:

Gov. Robert Casey was prevented from speaking at the 1992 Democratic convention precisely because he wanted to defend the unborn. Sen. Bob Casey Jr. was allowed to speak at the 2008 convention and chose not to defend the unborn. I'm not sure how the second event addresses or balances the first. It was a small deal that could have been a big deal -- with a little courage.

Column is aptly named. Republican boosters like Gerson and Krauthammer rant while Democratic supporters sound reasonable. Next week EJ and others will be squawking while Krauthammer and Gerson will find a lot to like and little to criticize.

Typicaly Republican zombie lies. Try to construct a narrative that matches reality next time.

Gov. Robert Casey was prevented from speaking at the 1992 Democratic convention precisely because he DIDN'T ENDORSE CLINTON. That's the only reason! My post-partisan lies. Maybe you should rename the paper. Neo-Con Lies Post.

Mr. Gerson you're a bought-and-paid for hypocrite rant.

Perhaps you should try doing something of actual value for the nation?

Like landscaping. That would be a good career for you.

Gerson, I notice your "piece" about how Hillary didn't endorse Obama in her speech got taken down pretty quickly, after we ripped you a new one on the comments board this morning. You can't even find it using the Post's search engine. Ouch.

All right, just found it. But you're living proof that any idiot can be a journalist.

You're such a freak, Gerson. Anyway, you should be worrying about the Republican nominee, McCain, who will pick a pro-choice running mate, Ridge or Lieberman, if he thinks he can get away with it. You're living in a dream world if you think McCain really gives a damn about fetuses.

Has this putz apologized yet for serving as Bush's speechwriter?

There's a special place in Hell for you, Mr. Gerson.

Folks, let's just call Mike Gerson what he is. A self-promoting, limelight-hogging, hypocritical Republican hack, who is overly proud that he used to craft words for the oh-so-Godly George W. Bush. The man has no shame or humility. Yet he deigns to lecture the Democrats and lies while he does so.

Hey Mike. When a Republican, like say Chuck Hagel, is allowed to get up at the GOP convention and say that invading Iraq was the single greatest strategic blunder in US history, then we can talk.
