CARLSON: Well, [New York Times columnist] Frank Rich makes the point that if we were that biased against Hillary Clinton, we'd be asking to see her tax returns, and we'd be asking about who donates to her husband's foundation. And I personally believe we'd be asking a lot more questions about a Newsday piece today, about her behavior as a young lawyer representing someone accused of rape. The man was accused by a 12-year-old girl, and Hillary Clinton gave -- from my reading -- this child an awfully hard time in the courtroom, suggesting she was making it up and she had a history of doing things like that. Now their defense is, "Well, that's what lawyers are supposed to do." In other words, it's legal, therefore it's allowed. I guess my response would be, it's still repulsive and immoral. And yet, I bet you not one person will ask Hillary Clinton about that.So, Carlson, a recipient of Wing-Nut Welfare (his granduncle was the famous segregationist Senator William Fulbright) and college drop-out, is lecturing Hillary Clinton on professional ethics. Something of which he has not the wit, basis or eduction to understand.
Making it more painfully ironic, Tucker had been accused of rape in 2003, and discussed this in his autobiography Politicians, Partisans and Parasites: My Adventures in Cable News. Apparently the self-described "traumatic experience" that, allegedly, strengthened his belief in the presumption of innocence, particularly on allegations of a sexual nature only applies if you're white, male and konservative.
But if you're a woman defending an indigent man of those charges as his court-appointed attorney, you're a bitch who deserves nothing but contempt. Even if your refusal could lead to severe penalties. I think John Stewart was right when he said to Carlson:
"You know what's interesting though? You're as big a dick on your show as you are on any show."I concur.
