Huffington Post readers flay Campbell Brown for marrying right.
This afternoon, the Huffington Post ran a blurb on this weekend’s Colorado wedding of NBC correspondent Campbell Brown, 37, and Fox News analyst and GOP strategist Dan Senor, 34.
Below are some of the comments posted by HuffPo readers in response to the two-paragraph item:
randomizer37: “Oh my God, is he fucking ugly! Yet more proof that women are whores!”
Vaughn: “That guy looks like a fucking bug … He has the job of a cockroach … She probably fucked several TV execs to get where she is now.”
bootedbydailykos: “Campbell Brown is From Conservative (mostly Republican) Richmond Virginia … My husband who does video work knew her when she worked for a local station here in Richmond VA. She is a GOP whore. Which is why she married another partisan Hack / Whore for the GOP (Group of Parasites).”
TXfemmom: “How could she possibly ever trust someone who is such an accomplished liar? … Some of these really smart women can be so dumb.”
BushBites: “You know, the NBC woman’s married to Allen [sic] Greenspan, the CNN woman was with Rush Limbaugh. The so-called ‘liberal’ media is controlled by Republicans and their women.”
SBJack: “At her age she has to take what she can get … even if it is gay and younger than she is. Desperate Housewife, indeed.”
AllAmerican: “How appropriate … BEAVER CREEK.”
Jackalheadedgod: “Yeah, and what’s her name, the brunette on CNN, had personal knowledge of Limbaugh’s butt cyst until she took a blow to the head recently.”
Joel: “Ugly dress. Only a gay Republican would marry a woman in a dress that ugly.”
Let’s hear it for those on the left who dismiss a man they don’t like by calling him “gay,” and who take a woman down a couple of notches by throwing around the word “whore” and labeling her ugly, old and desperate. No wonder they hate Senor’s Republican ties so much; Republicans are mean and intolerant people.
Congratulations to Brown and Senor. Here’s wishing you a nonpartisan honeymoon.
