Salon communications director declares Bush worse murderer than Gosnell

If there’s a water cooler inside the Salon offices, remind us not to drink from it. It was bad enough being told that there’s been “copious” coverage of the Kermit Gosnell murder trial (like that opinion piece at in 2011 saying that the case highlighted the “need for more access” to abortion).

We suspected Salon couldn’t go much lower, but its communications director managed to do so in spectacular fashion, injecting the case with a dose of Bush Derangement Syndrome he must have been storing in the freezer for just such an occasion — or, more likely,  every occasion.


Or hired at Salon.

    It didn’t take long for the left to change the subject. Pro-Life is to blame and know tired shots at George W Bush.

  • Daniel Gilfillan

    “George W. Bush!” for leftists is the equivalent of when a writer has to explain a plot hole and yells “Wizards!”

  • The Sanity Inspector

    “This gets you laid at poetry readings.” wins the internet for today!

    • truckee22

      Line of the day for sure.

  • Randi Starr

    A man with a cutesy title and no common sense……….desperate for an audience working for a rag tag media site. Someone give this fool a hug, he’s needy!

    • nc

      A hug? I’d feel dirty just standing in the same room with him. Ugh.

      • Randi Starr

        squeeze like really,really tight……then tighter

  • TJ

    Everyone knew this was coming. If not by being called open baby killers but by wrecking the economy to make poor people have to go Gosnell as they did not an employer paid abortion.

  • CatHerder

    Death in war equals infanticide exactly how?

    This is not a rhetorical question! How the HELL do you equate adults who enlisted to fight for their country with babies who didn’t have a voice to protest their own murders?

    • grais

      Nobody Does/Can logically equate them. But a dope can Try to when he’s got absolutely nothing else.

  • WilliamAmos

    Someone get him to ask Obama about drones.

    • CatHerder

      Well said, if unlikely of reply.

      • angeleyez

        The abortion is over when the baby stops screaming.

        • The Sanity Inspector

          Oh, that stung!

    • TocksNedlog

      Drones don’t kill babies!

      Military-style assault weapons (definition: ANY weapon that is used to assault someone) with one-use magazine clips that hold more than seven bullets — THEY kill babies!!!

      • rennyangel2

        None used at Newtown.

    • Brian H (wackobird)

      Why…..that’s just UNCIVILIZED! {feigned outrage}

    • ICOYAR

      Obama is nothing more than a drone. A stupid drone.

  • cgraham77

    These people are truly deranged.

  • Squirrel!

    Wow…. just wow! They found a way to blame Bush. Seriously? Bwahahahahaha!! Purely twisted, ignorant logic!

  • Spatial Awareness

    *cough* Drone *cough* I’m not a dictator *cough* 0bama

  • disqus_e2F2oUH6C7

    @Liam_ODonoghue Ask Obama about when he was a Sen. and said YES to the bill that would let babies born alive die if they survived late term abortions.

  • 3seven77

    “It’s Bush’s fault”, “Raaaccisssm”, and “You must hate (insert word here)”. The last resort of brain dead lefties.

    • Brian H (wackobird)


  • Brett McMicken

    when all else fails: blame bush

    • mike_in_kosovo

      Nah…it’s the default answer whenever anything bad happens.

  • Jack Deth



    salon people, you are trashy humans

  • TocksNedlog

    So . . . Liam O’Donoghue is OKAY with what Gosnell did?

    • TugboatPhil

      In a word, Yes.

      • CDUB

        I watched the 3801 Lancaster 20 min video, before the graphic warning message was up.
        I covered my eyes after I saw the first image…… I can’t get that out of my head and what kind of monster and staff could do that………Liam is rotten to the core to invoke GW Bush…. Pure rotten. Peace little babies….

  • rennyangel2

    The left never fails to achieve the worst kind of moral and ethical equivalence no matter what the issue.
    Why doesn’t Salon, The View, and the NYTimes just come out in favor of infanticide and be done with the fiction that abortion is somehow ONLY removing “masses of cells”?
    Just declare yourselves baby murderers and get it over with.

    • Judy B

      Here, here, good call out.

  • Kate

    He’s one of those people who is perfectly okay with declaring GWB a “mass murderer,” but criticize Obama’s choice of shirt color and you’ll get a lecture about how the POTUS “deserves our respect.”

    It must be hard to harbor that much anger.

  • Jack Deth

    This is so very lame. Though I expect no less from Salon. Trying to divert attention from Planned Parenthood’s very own Dr. Mengele.

  • cscape

    the psychosis is simple…… no matter what the argument……. no matter what the context……. it always will go back to BUSH

  • Chip

    And Salon is a worse rag than The National Enquirer….


    I don’t like Bush, but compared to Gosnell, he is a saint.

  • tsluf273

    That is so 2004.

  • George Best

    Obama is going to honor Gosnell by naming a drone after him…The Kermit…

  • Proud_Conservative

    Geez, those unhinged liberals, always with the Bush bashing, those roughly 100,000 dead iraqis aren’t nearly as bad as 7 dead AMERICAN babies!

  • Sermattei Genga

    how long will we continue to use the f-word, referring to babies?
