Probably my favorite site as a source of documented proof of the dementia that liberal thinking can take is Salon.com! I swear, reading some of the lines of reasoning that goes on in some of those articles is like watching a train wreck in slow motion. And I use the train analogy for a reason, because their trains of thought are often that: train wrecks!
Even in Salon.com articles that try to sound more centered as opposed to very left wing, a quick glance to the comments section demonstrates that even their readers have the same sort of train-wreck-in-slow-motion thinking. But oh! Friends, that's not even the best part of it! The best part of it is not so much what they cover as what they don't cover! It's there that you get a true taste of where their thinking lies.
If you do a Salon search for "Palin", you'll get three pages of recent articles about Sarah Palin. BUT, do a search for "Gosnell", who is Dr. Kermit Gosnell, the abortion doctor who recently was in the news over his atrocious abortion clinic, you get one recent article on it (as of the time I wrote this blog entry). One. Further down in the archived search results, you two more articles, and you also see this same line repeated: "Dr. Kermit Gosnell got rich off of his "house of horrors" clinic -- now he faces eight...", which means it's referring to the same line in one of those articles. You also see a lot of references to Raja Gosnell, who is a movie director.
Yes, I know what some of you will say: Palin is a public figure while Dr. Gosnell is not. However, Gosnell's inhumane barbarity goes to the very heart of their support of legalized abortion. Here we have a man allegedly "helping" women exercise their "right to choose" and they are paying for it with their health or their lives. So I ask, why isn't this man discussed more on Salon? Why is the "dimwit dingbat" Palin occupying so much of their web space, while this monster is not? And Dr. Gosnell isn't the only example of a horrible abortion doctor, so why doesn't Salon do one of their classic exposés on the abortion industry?
You know, I was going to continue a point, but I think what I'll do instead is stop here and see if Salon makes any more articles about Dr. Gosnell over the weekend and compare that to how many Sarah Palin stories that they make over the same time frame.
Check Salon.com for yourself over the weekend and make your own comparisons, and then I'll report back on either Monday or Tuesday.
Have a great weekend!
