Ostroy breaks his own flip-flop record: TWO days!

It seems our favorite liberal wingnut, Andy Ostroy, is determined to make it a 3-peat and walk home with 2011’s Fraudie award. He has accomplished a feat that I did not think even Bush or McCain would deliver. Taking only TWO days to flip flop.
Three days ago Ostroy wrote an article titled, "The Tucson Shooting: We Must Place Blame Where It Belongs" [January 10, 2011], in which he said this:
“There are those, like me, who seek to place the blame squarely where it's deserved: on the backs of right-wing hate-mongering radicals like Sarah Palin, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck.”

YESTERDAY, in his article titled, "Palin Defiantly Feeds the Beast" [January 12, 2011], he said this:
“To be sure, Jared Loughner did not go that parking lot Saturday with Palin's inflammatory rhetoric as his driver. He very likely never heard any of her speeches or seen her website. So to blame her directly is nothing more than partisan vitriol, no matter how much some may dislike her or condemn those words and actions.”

If that colossal flip-flop [in record time, I might add] was not bad enough, in the very same article [at the end] he goes back to blaming her again, saying this:
“Palin could've used the Tuscon tragedy as a mechanism to chart a new, more effective course for herself. Instead, her message to America is, 'My toxic rhetoric is here to stay. Deal with it.'”
To make matters worse, in TODAY’S article titled, “The Political Implosion of Sarah Palin” [January 13, 2011], he says this:
“Palin was right about one thing: it's unfair and inaccurate to blame her toxic political rhetoric for the Tuscon shooting.”
So, in essence, Ostroy is simply saying, “Blame her/it’s partisan vitriol to blame her/blame her/it’s unfair and inaccurate to blame her”
Jesus, my head is spinning from the winds of Hurricane Flip-flopia
To make matters even worse, Ostroy’s blog is nothing more than a litany of hate-filled toxic rhetoric from day one to the present day. Here are just a FEW examples of many, many, many I could list:
[Keep in mind, the following are just the TITLES of his articles]
April 1, 2005, “It’s Time To Take Down Tom Delay”. [Hmmm. “take down”? Take down in what way Andy? Injury? Murder?]
February 14, 2006, “Cheney’s Days Are Numbered” [What exactly do you mean here Andy? Planning on killing Cheney?]
February 15, 2006, “Cheney’s Got A Gun” [This is re-written words to “Janie’s Got a Gun” making fun of the Cheney shooting incident. Yes, Ostroy is mocking a very serious shooting]
July 4, 2006, “Washing Post’s Dana Priest Bitch-slaps Bill Bennett. It Was a Beautiful Thing to Watch” [violence was beautiful to watch Andy? No violent vitriol from the LEFT, huh?]
October 12, 2006, “Bush Predicts GOP Victories in November. If That Isn’t The Kiss of Death for Republicans, What Is?" [Hmmmm. “Kiss of DEATH for Republicans? You want Republicans DEAD Andy? ]
October 9, 2006, “Sean Hannity is a Big, Fat Lying Hypocritical Repuglican Blowhard” [Ahhhh, no hateful vitriol from the left. Move along...nothing to see here]
July 28, 2007, “The Right Wing Media’s Hillary-Bashing Heats Up” [Posted on this story is a picture of Hillary Clinton with a giant machine gun with bullets strapped over her shoulder and a caption above saying “take no prisoners tour". At the bottom of the picture it says "Rambabe: Conservative Body Count"]
Here is a screen shot of his story incase he tries the ole edit-aroo!
May 31, 2009, "Message to Republicans: Attacking Sotomayor is Another Nail in Your Coffin". [Hmmm. Coffin? You wish them DEAD Andy?]
November 9, 2009, "F**K You Sean Hannity!" [Nope. No hateful rhetoric here!]
These are only a few. I was only browsing TITLES and not even checking every month!
Ostroy constantly called the Bush administration “Busheviks” and called Republicans “Repugs”, so for Ostroy to claim that violent and hateful rhetoric ONLY comes from the right is a massive lie, as I have just demonstrated.
Good job Andy, you’re starting off 2011 with a bang [oh no, did I say “bang”? Has that word been outlawed yet?]
