Unfunny, Mean Spirited, Obnoxious Punk
This Clinton defenderâ€™s hatred of the President is malignant. I did, however, find his thoughts on president hating to be quite revealing. The following exchange took place during the course of a â€œhard hittingâ€ interview of Mr. Begala by Buzzflash:
Buzzflash: How can you explain the virulent hate that so many people in the right wing have for Clinton? It just seems inexplicable. I mean, it is so bilious. And you think of people like Judge Bork who, at one conservative meeting said, he could have hung Clinton.
Paul Begala: You know what I’m thinking it is? I’ve thought about this a lot. My latest pet theory is projection — the psychological theory that says you take things you hate most about yourself, project them onto somebody else and attack them for that. So in other words, I think this is self-hatred projected on an innocent man. That’s what I believe.
Ergo, hate thyself, you piece of shit. He then applied this mindless psychobabble to Mr. Clinton:
I believe these people hate themselves. I believe they hate our country. I believe they hate our culture. And they can’t deal with that. They can’t accept the level of self-loathing that they have, and so they project it onto someone else. I mean, for all of his faults and the troubles in his marriage, Bill Clinton is still married to a girl he met in the library 25 years ago at school. Can we say that about many of our other leaders today in America, including on the right wing? I don’t think so. For all of his many faults, he is a man who, until he became the President of the United States of America, never earned more than $35,000 a year because he put service first. He is a man who, despite all of his many flaws and sins, has raised a good kid in as difficult a circumstance as you can possibly imagine. I mean, by any standard of measure, he is a good man. He is a decent man. He is a successful man. And yet they heap this hatred on him. I believe it is because they hate themselves. And for that, I’ll continue to pray for them.
Keep your prayers to yourself, punk.
