When they do put up a seemingly pro-Teaparty piece, it is not genuine. They think they are being cute. Allahpundit is narcissistic enough to believe that he can appease what he sees as the embarrassing but necessary grassroots hillbillies and push his enlightened establishment agenda all at the same time.
"Everybody thinks that Jenny has the crabs, but not me. I don't care what everyone else says, I think it would be okay to go ahead and date her if you want."
Man, what a swell guy for taking up for Jenny like that!
In his 8/22/13 thread Allahpundit managed to insult Rick Perry's intelligence, add a hint of credibility to left's totally predictable claim that Cruz is too smart to be a true Teabagger, and use the very cosmopolitan and centrist sounding word "reactionaries" all in the same paragraph.
Then he went on to echo the words of one of those ignorant reactionaries almost verbatim:
Allahpundit (Hot Air - 4:11 pm on August 22, 2013) How to explain Ted Cruz, then? In two ways. One: Liberal messaging on conservatives is that they’re necessarily stupid, crazy, or evil. If you can’t get Cruz on either of the first two counts, you’re naturally going to lean heavily on the third. Simple as that.
BC (im41.com - 7:00 am on August 21, 2013) The left have only three weapons in their attack arsenal: They are dumb; they are racist; they are evil. Since he is an Hispanic who is highly intelligent, look for the for them to paint him as Jack The Ripper…Brilliant! I couldn't have said it better myself!
