Protecting evil: that is the subject of this evening's "Talking Points Memo".Okay, one comment: O'Reilly is the dumbest f***ing man alive.
A few weeks ago, New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof criticized me for fabricating the war on Christmas, his words, and for allegedly ignoring real stories like human rights abuses in Darfur.
I replied that did advocate aggressive U.N. action in the Sudan and that all violations of human rights should be condemned.
Now we have a gross violation of a little girl's human rights in Vermont. Over a four-year period, as you may know, beginning when she was just six, a little girl was methodically raped by a man named Mark Hulett. When Hulett finally confessed to the crimes, Vermont Judge Edward Cashman gave him just 60 days in prison. The judge suspending the rest of the sentence so Hulett could get treatment.
So a little girl was brutalized, excuse me, and the vicious predator gets two months and probation. This, of course, is a gross violation of the girl's human rights. But The New York Times has not even mentioned the story, nor has any network news organization.
Yes, things are bad in Darfur. Nicholas Kristof's right. But there's a gross human rights violation going on in Vermont. And the media and politicians could not care less. Somebody tell Mr. Kristof and his editors.
