Let's talk about sanctimonious BS for a moment

In specific, that in this post by Michelle Malkin. It's Bill Clinton buttmonkey Lanny Davis, talking about the primary fight between Leiberman and Lamont. He's taken notice of the, shall we say, nastiness some of Lamont's people are displaying, and says this:
This kind of scary hatred, my dad used to tell me, comes only from the right wing--in his day from people such as the late Sen. Joseph McCarthy, with his tirades against "communists and their fellow travelers." The word "McCarthyism" became a red flag for liberals, signifying the far right's fascistic tactics of labeling anyone a "communist" or "socialist" who favored an active federal government to help the middle class and the poor, and to level the playing field.
I came to believe that we liberals couldn't possibly be so intolerant and hateful, because our ideology was famous for ACLU-type commitments to free speech, dissent and, especially, tolerance for those who differed with us. And in recent years--with the deadly combination of sanctimony and vitriol displayed by the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter and Michael Savage--I held on to the view that the left was inherently more tolerant and less hateful than the right.

Apparently Mr. Davis has a very selective memory. None of the name-calling and threatening indulged in by his 'compassionate liberals' in the past counts at all, not even noticable. For that matter, the absolutely vile crap coming out of Air America has registered at all with him. But now that someone is saying bad things about Leiberman, well, this is terrible! This has to stop!

Screw you, Davis. I remember the crap that has come out of your mouth over the years, including when you were helping your old boss cover up all kinds of crap. I remember the garbage your boss said about anyone- hell, IS saying about anyone- who doesn't agree with or won't go along with what he says should be. Anyone else remember what Clinton was saying after the OKC Bombing? And how much upset that stirred up?

For that matter, some of the "...favored an active federal government to help the middle class and the poor, and to level the playing field, since he's apparently forgotten, included trashing people and their beliefs in order to hand more power to the government. As for the 'ACLU-type commitments', the list of BS coming out of that organization has filled books on its' own, including their intolerance for anyone who doesn't agree with them and their commitment to defending those rights that they agree with, but not others; those don't count as 'individual' rights(2nd Amendment, anyone?)

Lanny Davis can kiss my ass. Nothing done by the Left in the past counts, but now that someone gored his ox, he's 'discovered' nastiness on his Left, and he's not happy. Two-faced little weenie.
