Neil Munro, briefly famous for interrupting Obama last week since he knew the president wasn’t going to take questions, refuses to take questions about his actions.

I think “hypocrisy” requires some degree of self-awareness.
He approved of, gloried in, his every action; yet he wasn’t vain, exactly, and he wasn’t the hypocrite that Gertrude said he was. He had not evolved to the stage of moral development at which hypocrisy is possible. To him the action was right because it was his–he had never learned to judge his own act as though it were another’s. If he had told you that he would do something he did it, unless there was some reason for him not to do it. He had the morals of a State; had, almost, the morals of an Army.
This is obviously a quote from something, but (whatever that says about me) I don’t know what, and my Google-Fu appear weak. Some help?
Randall Jarrell, Pictures from an Institution. Highly recommended.
I was curious about that quote myself. Will try to take a look at it.
The quote describes a college president, if that makes it any more interesting.
And it was pretty interesting to begin with.
Stank hypocrisy also too.
Yo liberals, I’ll let you finish…but Muntadar al-Zaidi had the best presidential interruption of all time.
Yes, a foreign President who helped him lose who knows how many friend and relatives to death and/or displacement, in a display of blatant lying and authoritarian hubris, never, or rarely, seen before in this county.
This Munro punk is just some Conservative shit-stain, who’s too stupid, too poor a writer, and too intellectually lazy, to get a job writing for someone other than that feckin’ idjit Tucker Carlson, and who doesn’t like it that one of them there Darkies is the President of a country that shit-stain wasn’t even born in!
No comparison at all!
That should read “… in an invasion, a war, and an occupation brought on by that American President in a display…”
lets go with helen thomas then. her wiki entry says she interrupted bush. haven’t looked into the details tho.
Is Manju a Tucker Carlson sock puppet? You have to admit the argumentative style and commitment to research are both uncannily similar.
And you’ll notice that Munro blatantly lies in his account of the event; he claims that he knew the President was finishing up, so called out his questions as Obama was leaving, but the transcript shows he interrupted the middle of the speech. That’s why Obama called him out on it.
Johnny Cash, when interrupted at San Quentin – “I’m sorry, I couldn’t hear you. I was talking.”
lying to congress is like the most amusing crime ever. not even burning a cross on robert byrd’s lawn can top it.
oops, meant 4 the clemons thread.
If you watch the video, you’ll see Munro hyper-ventillating, he was getting pretty amped up for his 15 minutes of fame
While the precise definition of the term ‘conservative libertarian’ will no doubt remain contested for the forseeable future, this incident lends further weight to us arguing for ‘dickhead.’
