RUSH: Carol Costello, my former stalker at CNN. She has a corner on the market on laughing at things. Did you hear what happened? Did you hear what she… (interruption) Yeah. And this is so classic. This is just typical.
What happened was Bristol Palin, the daughter of Sarah Palin, got beat up. She basically got beat up and ended up calling the cops, and Carol Costello at CNN just thought it was the greatest news that she’d ever heard. Oh, yeah, Carol talked about this as being something that we hadn’t enjoyed in a long, long time. Here, grab audio sound bite 15. This is how that started, Wednesday morning, CNN’s Newsroom. This is a portion of — well, she used to be one of my stalkers. They assigned her to cover this program. That’s what I mean. Now she’s an anchorette, full-fledged infobabe. She even wears the glasses and everything to look like she’s a serious Walter Cronkite type person. And this is what she said.
COSTELLO: Okay, I’m just gonna come right out and say it. This is quite possibly the best minute-and-a-half of audio we’ve ever come cross — well, come across in a long time, anyway. (laughing) A massive brawl in Anchorage, Alaska, reportedly involving Sarah Palin’s kids and her husband. It was sparked after someone pushed one of her daughters at a party. That’s what Bristol Palin told police in an interview after the incident. And now police have released audio of that interview. It does include some rather colorful language from Bristol. Here now is Bristol’s recollection of how that night unfolded, so sit back and enjoy.
RUSH: Enjoy. Sit back and enjoy. The best minute-and-a-half of audio she and CNN have ever come across.
BRISTOL: I’m gonna defend my sister. She’s 20 years old.
Unidentified Police Officer: A guy comes out of nowhere and pushed you on the ground?
BRISTOL: A guy comes out of nowhere and pushes me on the ground, takes me by my feet in my dress, in my thong dress in front of everybody. Come on you (bleep). Come on you (bleep). Get the (bleep) out of here. I don’t know this guy. I’ve never seen this guy in my life. (bleeeeeeeep).
RUSH: Carol Costello was just eating it up and in fact said…
COSTELLO: I think that long beep was my favorite part. We should point out that no charges were filed on this incident and in a September 19th Facebook post Sarah Palin defended her daughter writing in part, quote, “I love my Bristol. I have to say this is a proud mama, my kids’ defense of my family makes my heart sore.” You can thank me later.
RUSH: She means you, the audience, can thank Carol for exposing what we are all supposed to think is the continuing idiocy of the Palin family. Now, here’s Carol Costello, a supposed feminist, a supposed opponent of violence against women. I mean, would just be angry as hell if any other woman had been treated this way. Had they been attacked and it was on audiotape and she was playing it, she would be righteously indignant and probably blaming the Republican War on Women. But here she’s eating it up. Here she just loves it, a supposed feminist, a supposed opponent of violence against women, presented an audiotape of a young woman describing being attacked and beaten by a bunch of drunken men as the most delicious thing she had ever heard in her life.
Now, we must be fair, Carol Costello has subsequently been forced to offer a halfhearted apology, one of those, “I apologize to anyone who is too stupid to understand my happiness” kind of apologies. “That’s not really me. I apologize to anybody who may have been offended by what I didn’t intend to convey,” blah, blah, blah, blah. If she were a conservative, she would already have been fired, but since she’s a rabid left-wing activist masquerading as a journalist on CNN she’s on velvet. She has apologized, but refuses to on the air. (interruption) No, she will not apologize on the air. So the low-information crowd will never hear her apology.
Second, I wonder maybe if she didn’t think she would get away with it in the first place because nobody would ever hear her say it because she’s on CNN. Maybe that’s what this is all about. She felt safe in saying ’cause she knows nobody watches that network.
