Colmes got sick of being ideologically and personally overshadowed by Hannity and eventually the show became known as “Hannity” and Alan Colmes tried to make a difference on his own.
But he is still trying. Which is why today during an interview regarding the Republican presidential race, Alan Colmes tried to mock Republicans based on the ever changing frontrunner status of their candidates. Colmes tried to claim that the G.O.P. field is an extremely weak one and everytime the spotlight gets focussed on one of them, they can’t stand up to the scrutiny.
Colmes then claimed that Rick Santorum is the most recent example and added that when people find out that he took home his dead baby and played with it for two hours, they will find that Santorum is too weird for their liking. [ See the actual interview below this post.]
Colmes actual words were;
“Once they get a hold of the crazy things he’s said and done like taking his two-hour old baby who died right after childbirth home and played with it for a couple of hours so his other children would know that the child was real.”
The reference was to the Santorum families painful loss when Rick and his wife Karen were told by their doctor that an ultrasound revealed their unborn baby Gabriel had a fatal defect and was going to die.
But Gabriel was born alive;
Santorum once reflected on the personal, family tragedy by saying;
“For two hours he lived a life that knew only love.”
The same Fox News segment that hosted Colmes during his ugly remarks, also had National Review writer Rich Lowry on and after Colmes made the outrageous statement, Lowry took Colmes to task and stated;
“That’s a cheap shot, Alan. To say it’s crazy, something that’s that personal and hurtful as losing a child and to mock it like that is beyond the pale and beneath you. I even think some of the dastardly characters we have in the main stream media are not going to go as low as you just have Alan.”
Colmes defended his statement during the rest of the interview and stuck to his guns claiming that his remarks were perfectly legitimate commentary. But by late 8:00 pm, Colmes liberal brain finally caught up with his mouth and he phoned the Santorum’s to make a formal apology and he tweeted the following:
Rick and Karen Santorum may have accepted the apology and ultimately that is all that really matters. But I have to tell you that I am unfortunately not so easy to forgive. It is not impossible for me, especially since I know that I myself am in need of forgiveness when I demonstrate my own lack of judgement. However I am not going to be able to easily forget the tactic that Alan Colmes tried to get away with here.
It was another fine example of just how truly ugly liberals are willing to get in this election. It is clear to me that with a President representing them at the top of the ticket, with a record Democrats can not run on and in many instances will have to run away from, they will have no qualms about resorting to some of the most despicable and disgraceful tactics that we have seen in presidential history. Their tastelessness will not prevent them from doing anything it takes to win, be it mocking ones faith……something that will be of particular importance if Mormon Mitt Romney wins the nomination, to dead baby jokes, nothing will be off limits to the mainstream liberals like Alan Colmes who represent today’s Democratic Party.
Ultimately, if Rick and Karen Santrorum can forgive Alan Colmes for his unbelievably outrageous comments, than we all can. But like the symbol of our Party, we don’t ever have to forget.
