Moby vs. Drudge

New York Daily News - Home - Lloyd Grove's L: "Among [Margaret Cho's] saltier observations, during [MoveOn.org's] celeb-studded gala to honor political ads attacking President Bush: 'Despite all of this stupid bull-- that the Republican National Committee, or whatever the f-- they call them, that they were saying that they're all angry about how two of these ads were comparing Bush to Hitler? I mean, out of thousands of submissions, they find two. They're like f-- looking for Hitler in a haystack. ...George Bush is not Hitler. He would be, if he f-- applied himself.'

After Drudge's account was linked by the right-leaning FreeRepublic.com, Cho received dozens of ugly E-mails, most of them unprintable in a family newspaper. (A typical message advised the California-born Korean-American: 'Go back to Asia you slanted eye whore.')

On her own Web site this week, Cho wrote to a concerned fan: 'I know that I have not pulled punches with the way that I beat the s-- out of Dumya, I mean Dubya.'

Moby told me: 'The only good to come of this is that the extreme right has shown their true colors. ...Bush is masquerading as a 'compassionate conservative,' but they've now exposed their extremely right-wing, misogynistic, racist agenda.'


OK, so Margaret Cho is free to associate President Bush and his supporters as Nazi's (undeniably extremist position, and also wrong), but extemists on the other side are misognyistic and racists (and, in this Blog's view, equally wrong).

Sound like the pot calling the kettle.... oh wait, that may be an extremist's expression.
