Liberal talker Randi Rhodes came up with a new attack against Mitt Romney. There’s something a little bit ‘gay’ about the man.
“I guess I’ll call it the, is Marco Rubio too short to stand next to Mitt Romney tour/audition? That’s what it is,” she said on April 24. “And you know, and the answer is yes, because when they stand next to each other Marco Rubio looks like a 17-year-old. God love him,” she added.
But then she veered into territory that would get a conservative talk show host fired.
“He does, he looks like a little boy. It’s almost like the Batman and Robin thing that Quayle and Bush senior had going on there, it’s very homoerotic, I gotta say,” she said.
“Which would be a good thing, if they were liberals, but is a decidedly bad thing, seeing how they’re conservatives,” wrote Newsbusters’ Jack Coleman.
Coleman explained the double standard:
Liberals are more than willing to engage in coded homophobia to suit their purposes, followed shortly thereafter by their angry denunciations of conservatives as homophobic.
“It’s this kind of keen insight and lacerating wit that made Rhodes the scourge of the junior high cafeteria where, not incidentally, she still finds herself today,” Coleman added.
Brian Maloney of the Radio Equalizer noted that when Texas governor Rick Perry was briefly in the lead last year, “he was suddenly homosexual.” The same thing happened when Rick Santorum – the scourge of the radical gay left – surged into the lead, Maloney said.
“Win a primary or enjoy a bump in the polls and it’s automatic,” he wrote.
Coleman adds that Romney and Rubio have “fathered nine children,” and Romney went “so far as to marry his high school sweetheart to maintain this decades-long ruse,” he added.
In 2008, the liberal radio network Air America said they suspended Rhodes for using “abusive, obscene language at a recent public appearance in San Francisco.”
Coleman wrote that she described Geraldine Ferraro and Hillary Clinton each as a “f***ing whore,” and the Huffington Post’s Danny Shea wrote that she quit the network, refusing to apologize for her comments.
“No one is upset. She made the move but there’s relief and joy,” an anonymous source at Air America reportedly told Shea.
“Remember, it’s conservative talk radio that’s the real problem, there’s nothing to see here! Move along, people,” Maloney concluded.
