Patrick Moran smashed in his girlfriend's face; Tommy Christopher slams the real villains: Ace and Twitchy

Let’s recap: Patrick Moran, son of Dem Rep. Jim Moran, entered a guilty plea for assaulting his girlfriend, Kelly Hoffman. She now says it was “accidental,” but officers on the scene witnessed the woman-beating sleazebag slam Hoffman’s head into a metal trash can cage. She was “bleeding heavily” from what appeared to be a broken nose and her eye socket was so swollen a medical technician suspected a skull fracture.

But you know who’s “really horrible and stupid”? Conservatives, natch. You know, no redeeming (D) after their names.

Sensitive, lady-loving Mediaite feminist Tommy Christopher was so distraught over the appalling domestic abuse that he immediately lashed out at the filthy lowlife. Er, make that lowlifes: Twitchy and blogger Ace of Spades.

In the first paragraph of his (COLUMN), Christopher writes, “It’s a horrible story that highlights an important, serious issue, but ….”

But? But what, Tommy? Domestic violence is totes important to Tommy and he’s all about the ladies, but … but … Twitchy hurted his widdle feelings by including one tweet about him from Ace:

Christopher claimed that “shortly after the news was reported” Twitchy “decided that the real villains were Rachel Maddow, Sandra Fluke, the media, Rep. Moran, and, somehow, me, while using Ms. Hoffman’s injuries as inspiration for pop-culture riffs.”

Actually, Tommy, the handful of curated tweets mentioning Maddow, Fluke and somehow, you, were added as an update nearly four hours after the post was published. Like intellectual honesty, time stamps are hard. And shockah, it isn’t all about you.

As for Rep. Moran, evidently Tommy finds the Democrat’s history of violent behavior irrelevant to the current story about his son’s violent behavior. Gosh, what could the connection be? To Tommy, two plus two equals … octopus!

Tommy also refuses to touch what he calls Rep. Moran’s “boilerplate statement” about the incident. That would be the “boilerplate statement” in which he hoped these “good kids” could put “this embarrassing situation behind them.”

His “good” son rearranged a woman’s face. That’s not embarrassing — it’s criminal, making that statement nothing short of depraved.

Here’s what is relevant to Tommy:  Twitchy’s “horrible” effort to demonstrate that Moran family values include providing cover for a degenerate, woman-beating son and an apparent history of knocking around uppity dames.

Nothing to see here. Move along.

But since Ace’s tweets were the target of Tommy’s latest dishonest descent into a form of Blame Righty Syndrome, let’s let him destroy the (COLUMN).

Prescient!

Indeed, Tommy had nothing to say about this “horrible story that highlights an important, serious issue” until publishing his (COLUMN) shortly after 11 p.m.

Oh, there’s an explanation for that. See, Tommy doesn’t think Moran “got off.” He sees the sentence of probation, counseling and community service as just about right, all things considered. He writes:

That still seems like a very lenient sentence for a guy who fractured his girlfriend’s skull, but not when you consider that Ms. Hoffman covered for Moran, and wanted the case dismissed.

Did he forget about the officers who witnessed the crime? The medical techs who treated her?

Bingo! Tommy complains that Twitchy, and by extension, Ace, “exploit[ed] this sad situation for cheap points.” Exploiter of sad situations, heal thyself.

No need for Google. Tommy read all about Rep. Moran’s greatest hits in the Twitchy post he whines about in his (COLUMN).

Funny you should mention Amanda Marcotte. Because hey, you know who the real victim is here?

Yep, Twitchy and Ace are the real villains, and as always, Amanda Marcotte is the victim. She got her femme-a-gogue knickers in twist yesterday when conservatives, led by the awesome @LilMissRightie, eviscerated the feminist Left for ignoring the news about a Democrat going old-school ECW on his girlfriend’s face.

Like Tommy, Amanda responded by noting how horrible conservatives are and pretending she was already hard at work on a piece about Moran.

Don’t look too hard for those tweets.

Hey, maybe that’s where Tommy Christopher got the topic for his latest Mediaite drivel.

Ace also noted the deafening feminist silence, long before Amanda Marcotte and Tommy Christopher got around to publishing anything on Moran.

Once again, Ace called it accurately. Marcotte was embarrassed into crapping out an article at The American Prospect. And because she thinks you’re stupid, for cover she published a hilarious post at Raw Story: a timeline to “prove” she was already working on the Prospect article when wingnutty wingnuts tweeted her about the Moran story.

No, really, she published a timeline!

Thank goodness! Meanwhile, what’s the #WarOnWomen crowd up to today?

Chirp. Chirp. Chirp.

    Don’t you guys know it’s totally wrong not to force employers who don’t believe in using contraception to provide it for free to their workers, but it’s okay to ignore actual violence against women by liberal men?

      That’s like Union Goons who bust up a vendor, trying to make a living. It’s okay, because you know, ‘D’ and all.

      Or that Steven Crowder deserved to be punched, after all, he provoked the goons. And of course, Mr. Tarver had pork in his hot dogs, which was offending those union goons that follow the religion of perpetual outrage.

    C-O-R-R-U-P-T-I-O-N. One definition of it is the differential application of laws and standards based upon one’s affiliations. Defenders of Moran’s behavior are explicitly participating in this process of corruption, and are contributing to the demise of the rule of law in our nation.

  • kate_middleton

    Tommy Christopher is the worst. This article made me want to puke. He used to be somewhat sane…but over the past few years, he’s gone off the deep end.
    I’m actually worried for him. The amount of rage he displays in his daily columns can’t be healthy.
    Newsflash – your guy’s in charge! Why are you STILL so angry?

    • videosavant

      The impressive thing about Tommy Christopher is that anyone who has read even one Mediate article written by Tommy can at any point in the future look at any long list of Mediate headlines and quickly, and with great accuracy, identify which of those stories are carrying TC bylines.

    See, here’s the thing. The left — particularly the Women of the Left — are fully indoctrinated and highly disciplined. They will not split from the party line, particularly when it might in some way imperil their precious sacrament of abortion.

    Winning at all costs is a way of life. And while they do frequently win, but they never act or behave like winners.

    “…while being abused for supposedly not writing.”

    “Abused?” Really? Did she seriously make a pun about, or intentionally compare herself to a viciously beaten woman? Being called out on twitter, where you can easily block people or just ignore them is “abuse?”

    Memo to Mr (Page B-4 of today’s WaPo’s ‘Style’ Section) Patrick Moran:

    You may have skated by the police and in the court of public perception. But you now have one very pissed off and payback seeking, beaten young woman who knows where you live and how to get to you.

    I’d be very careful when dining, drinking, crossing the street or approaching car parks and elevators.

    I’d hate for an accident or incident to occur and prove Mr. Kipling correct when he penned:

    “The Female of the Species is more Deadly than the Male” back in 1911.

    So the “War on Women” basically comes down to disagreeing with a woman, or even possibly hurting a woman’s feelings. But physical violence is fine – provided that the perpetrator is a liberal. Moran + union thugs – come git some.

    I’m kind of glad I missed this whole ugly affair, from the guy beating up his girlfriend to the partisan head hunting that followed.

    Michelle Malkin is a magician who can turn a terrivle story about domestic violence into a story about a guy who write for Mediate and a bunch of people who tweeted something.

  • SClanding

    You have to understand that Amanda nutjob is the one who was so stupid that she was joining John Edwards’ campaign before people pointed out she was a anti-religion bigoted LOON. You know ole women-loving John who was shagging cocktail waitresses while is wife was dying of cancer. You know I bet she was horribly upset at the people who were “taking pleasure” in her dear John’s banging other women while his wife died. Dunce little Amanda has the awareness of a barnicle and the intelligence of a slug.
    I suspect that Amanda is not too upset now because she has learn to get ahead that Democrat women are just expected to lie back and take one for the team….then just STFU.

  • ClarkFL

    So glad Ace took that bridge troll Tommy Christopher to task. His column at Mediaite is nothing but the basest liberal bias and d*ckhead snark. Everything is tied into a Conservative or something about race. Nothing is ever wrong with what a liberal does and if you dare try to prove it, he tries to make you out to be the bad guy, which is what he did to Ace and Twitchy. Abrams needs to clean house at that cesspool Mediaite. Its becoming Media Matters there. Half the articles are about Fox at any given time.

    So….. while liberals are allegedly slamming only the real villains Ace and Twitchy, I guess Ace and Twitchy would be slamming the real villains, Sandra Fluke, Rachel Maddow and Amanda Marcotte.

    When a
    female slaps a guy’s face they know that they own their attention mutually for
    a few seconds. When the male “loses it” and slaps a gal he loses the argument
    and his self-respect in my book.

    good thing for him she is not my daughter….if the law will not make it right, then it has failed, when it fails it requires us the people to correct both it and those who are supposed to enforce it. give the prosecutor hell, the reprobate i mean the representative his dad who it seems taught him respect for others and especially women…well i am starting to believe in the old stocks and bonds way of correction, maybe a few days in stocks in public would help him think about his ways.
