Defending Erick and Marshall.

Quin Hillyer of The American Spectator Blog defends Erick and Jim Marshall from Jane Hamsher’s vicious attacks:

Erickson, of course, is perfectly capable of defending himself and of putting a mirror up to Hamsher’s own record of hatefulness. He notes, for instance, Hamsher’s execrable tactic of doctoring a photo of Joe Lieberman to make it look like Lieberman is in blackface. And that’s just the tip of the hate-berg for Hamsher and/or Firedoglake. Just lat night at 7:52 p.m., for example, consider this absolutely sick, demented, vicious, callous reference to the late Terry Schiavo.

    Oh please! The day you guys remove all the hate from Free Republic, LGF and RedState is the day I’ll start caring about whether a Democrat participates in FDL or DailyKos.

    Can we focus on REAL issues?

    Guys, I know the Marshall vote was a big deal, but by mentioning this lady over and over in the posts, you just give her more attention. Totally not what you want to do, is it?
