No Depth Limit To Eric Boehlert’s Stupidity
Seriously, how does this clown even have a job? His infantile and idiotic behavior on Twitter alone should have him washing cars somewhere, not making six figures writing drivel all day for David Brock.
It was a banner moment in an otherwise typical day of the piffle that Eric tweets out, but as I scrolled through his stream, this tweet jumped out at me:
simple Q: if GOP’s so sure Harry Reid’s lying why doesn’t Romney release tax returns to, y’know, prove Harry Reid’s lying?

Oh Eric. You silly little man.
This has been the narrative the left has picked up lately on Mitt Romney’s tax returns and the lazy media has been happy to repeat it:
“We have no evidence that shows or even suggests Romney did anything wrong or illegal with regard to his taxes, but he needs to prove he did nothing wrong or illegal by releasing his tax returns!”
A variation of that is to say, “We don’t know if he did anything wrong. He could clear this up by releasing his tax returns.”
Well I don’t know if Eric has midget porn on his computer or not. He should release the contents of his hard drive to prove that he doesn’t.
See how stupid that sounds? But this is Eric Boehlert we’re talking about.
Aside from being lame, Eric is also a big fat hypocrite. It took me a few seconds to find this blog entry where Eric has trouble with CBS making a claim….that is not supported with evidence:
So, the governor wants to meet with backers of the proposed Islamic center, and from that Kramer concludes the center may be moved. Slight problem — there’s nothing in the article to support the newsy claim.
It gets even better:
Will backers of the mosque agree to move the project? It’s certainly possible. But that doesn’t mean journalists should run around writing those stories, and claiming non-existent facts, based on little more than an interview with a GOP Congressman who opposes the project.
Emphasis mine. Wow! How about that? Eric says it is not a good idea to be claiming “non-existent facts.” Surely, the Majority Leader of the United States Senate should be held to higher standard than some local CBS station don’t you think? I do.
Perhaps Eric might want to rethink his idea of telling somebody they have to prove a negative and take into consideration that those who make accusations are entitled to prove them.
But I suspect he won’t.
Because Boehlert is stupid.
