You Stay Classy, Alan Colmes


Alan Colmes of Hannity and Colmes wrote a post so inappropriate and offensive the Kos Kiddies would be envious. He accused Governor Palin of not taking enough care of Trig when he was an unborn baby. A man who has no problem with a woman killing her unborn baby through an abortion actually has the nerve to ask if Governor Palin took too great a risk with her pregnancy:

Rogers Cadenhead gives the timeline associated with the birth of her newest child. She had a speech in Dallas and, even after the water broke, continued with her activities, and then boarded a plane for home. She did consult by phone with her doctor.

Still, a Sacramento, Calif., obstetrician who is active in the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, said when a pregnant woman's water breaks, she should go right to the hospital because of the risk of infection. That's true even if the amniotic fluid simply leaks out, said Dr. Laurie Gregg.

In case he takes it down in an effort to hide his idiocy, I captured a screen shot for everyone to see. Click the image to enlarge.


Update By Jay Tea: Yup, as Kim predicted, it's gone down the memory hole. Apparently it was causing some "technical issues" for the site, so it got deleted. Congrats to Kim for having the foresight to get that screen capture. But if some more technically adept person than me can pull up a copy of the article in its entirety, we'll be more than proud to post it here at Wizbang.

In my career at Wizbang, I have unpublished exactly one article (not counting duplicates and other actual errors), and that was it was in incredibly poor taste. I didn't just disappear it, though; I posted another article stating it had been done, why, and apologized for it.

Publishing, then deleting, articles that later prove embarrassing is one of the most cowardly things that can be done in the blogosphere. It's also one of the dumbest, because the internet NEVER FORGETS ANYTHING. It only emphasizes the wrongness of the author who does it. In this case, Colmes gets to add "coward" to the list of epithets that people can toss at him over his initial article.

We don't do that here. It's not just a matter of principle for me, but sheer practicality -- as shown here, it doesn't work. It never works. I learned that when Kos issued his famous "screw them" piece on the American contractors murdered and left displayed in Iraq, then tried to Control-Z his way out of it. Several years later, it's still what he is best known for to a lot of people.

My apologies, Kim, for hijacking your article here. I probably should have made it a separate posting. But once I started, I just started going and going (as is my wont). I'll shut up now.

Not certain how being careless after your water breaks could cause Down's Syndrome, a genetic disease.

I am mildly surprised that I haven't been hearing a reprise of all of those remarks about the "extra chromosome wing of the Republican party" that were going around a while ago.

If you click on the homepage of Alan's site you get this:

"As some of you may (or may not) have noticed, Alan.com has been intermittently going up and down for the past couple of hours. We're working with our hosting provider to determine what the problem is-something, somewhere, is overloading our server, and we're waiting to hear back from the system administrator to see if they can help us determine what the issue is...."

I wonder what that "issue" could be? It seems many people are overloading their system and they can't even admit it!!

I hope this meme gets plenty of airplay...and consequentially, plenty of shoutdowns by people who actually have a clue.

The site to which Colmes links questions her "judgement" and furthers the "not her baby" speculation as well.

Even if one didn't know that the genetic mutation that causes Downs happens soon after fertilization, how does Alan presume a test that Palin had during the pregnancy accurately predicted a condition that would arise from actions surrounding the delivery?

Furthermore, on the "judgement" angle, the big question is why she took her time and flew back to Alaska. Has anyone considered that the very same OB who conducted the tests for Downs would be the most qualified to care for the baby at delivery? Could it be that no risk existed in waiting a few hours that wasn't far outweighed by the risks associated with a team of doctors treating her and the baby who had none of the specifics of her pregnancy?

My wife and I just had our sixth child, and it was considered a "high risk" pregnancy. Still, the health of the mother is a good indicator of an uncomplicated pregnancy and delivery, and things for us went without a hitch. We're not new to that classification; we had triplets eleven years ago. As a result, I am about as educated about pregnancy concerns as any lay person without a uterus can be. Palin made a decision, with her doctor's advice and direction, that resulted in the birth of a beautiful baby boy.

I'm more sure than ever that the "judgement" the libtards most resent is the call she made to actually carry, deliver, love and care for her baby, despite his handicap.

I'm also very disappointed in Colmes. Though he's bordered on flaky from time to time, I always counted him a little more intelligent than this.

I don't get it. Everyone acts like Colmes is some kind of pussycat punching bag for Hannity. No sir my friends, I've seen the guy screaming at the top of his lungs that, just as jon f'ing kerry slandered, our troops do "terrorize" innocent women and kids.

The guy is a piece of feces molded in the shape of a human and it would be good if Hannity told him so. The only person I ever saw with the temerity to speak up to the gutless little pussbag was Steven Emerson, and Colmes about twisted off with outrage. No, I say get some lib with half a brain like Pat Caddell, or even Susan "Whatsherface". Colmes is a hate filled pile of excrement, and he needs to be challenged about all of that hate he spews on a daily basis.

Shape up or ship yourself back to your old training grounds, the commie gulag, you spineless, bedwetting bastard! And as far as what you are saying about a fine American like Gov. Palin goes, just remember, we will all have to answer for everything we do and even say here in this life, unless you accept Jesus Christ as your savior, so good luck with that Mr. Colmes.

And as for any of you fellow travelers, America haters, and otherwise whiny souls who want to call me a hypocrite for "not loving my 'brother' alan colmes", it is not hypocritical to call a spade a spade. More to the point, I'm standing up for Mrs. Palin and you can't do that without noting what a canker sore the enemies of truth really are, so stuff it.

Colmes should know better. Down's Syndrome is a genetic condition and not a result of pre-natal care. What has liberals in a tizzy is that she didn't abort and still raises her child while doing her job. Nothing pisses them off more than not getting to practice their eugenics or minority who doesn't tow the party line.

Colmes is an ignorant dirtbag. Down's syndrome is a genetic disorder that was determined shortly after fertilization. Whether she flew back to Alaska or not after her water broke had nothing to do with Trig's disability. Gov. Palin made a decision after consulting with her doctor... a doctor that knoew a heck of a lot more about the particulars of that pregnancy than whatever doctor would have treated her in the city she was in.

I have been dealing with a major illness for the last five years, and I can tell you that having a doctor that knows the particulars of your situation is very important. If you get a doctor that doesn't know your medical history they can treat you based on the fundementals of medicine, but not on the particulars of your situation. Sometimes -- when dealing with life and death issues -- those particulars can mean the difference between a funeral and a welcome home party... believe me, I'm speaking from experience.

Down's syndrome is caused by an the baby having an extra chromosome. Remember when Gore got blasted for saying extra chromosome right wing and was told that he had equated republicans to folks with down's syndrome. There is nothing a mother can do during labor to prevent down's syndrome. Colmes commment is as ridiculous as the tripe that he spouts. He is one reason I dont watch Hannidy and Colmes. Hannidy's mouth is the other but I can deal with that to hear some of the quests respond to questions, when it is Colmes turn to speak I change the channel.

If Colmes were on the channels like ABC, NBC, and CBS, more folks would vote republican.

First off I write often against abortion on my blog, and am repulsed by the daily aborted babies in the us.

Secondly I am extremely conservative. I have a hard time even watching Hannity and Colmes.

Now I must take a stand here. I could not read the whole post by Colmes because it was gone, so I am commenting at the snippet you posted here. Regardless of Colmes opinion on abortion changes nothing on his snippet. As a mother of four that were high risk pregnancies he brings to light an important issue. One must be cautious. Oh and although Down's is a genetic disease, Palin is over 40, which places her pregnancy in the high risk category.

So here's the thing are we bashing Alan because he is for killing the baby in womb-and therefore can't make a statement on the other end?

Because this is a weak attack against Palin. For two of my kids I was on complete bedrest..and let me say this, I often walked to the fridge, the bathroom and just stood up...so I understand Palin continuing on...as doing nothing is hard. But Colmes in the part I read was only pointing out the dangers of water breaking(and why a high risk pregnancy person did not go in to a doctor?she isn't 25...)

Please do not jump all over me...I just about vomit at this mentality from the Left and rarely see this from the right that I was compelled to comment. And if Colmes wrote more that the snippet and questioned her motives than I would stand corrected...but in this post I haven't seen it.

Just by her actions, she has, in my opinion, saved the lives of countless children. She isn't a theory or a catagory. She is an alive, thinking human being who makes well thought out decisions.

Now THAT was a case of irresponsible, selfish parenting. Yet, I read so women's lib types extolling her for making a brave decision to parent without a man. Dumbasses.

So, for liberals to even try to deride Palin for maternity shows just how hateful they are toward the traditional family unit.

Alan has made no such link to Down's in his post and the referenced article clearly states that Down's was a separate issue. Maybe if people discussed what was stated - a question on her judgment - instead of just assuming that any remark on the birthing process implies ignorance of disorders and complications, you wouldn't look like such lunatics.

Jennifer, there are several points to this issue. The point I prefer to make is that Palins' prenatal care for her baby is not any business of Alan Colmes or for anyone else for that matter, period. Did Colmes look into the prenatal care Michelle Obama provided her kids & spalsh it across the world to make it an issue? Secondly, to insinuate that Palin put her baby at risk by her actions is also absurd & out of bounds for a professional journalist to make such a claim.

Jennifer (#18),If ... (Below threshold)

Jennifer (#18),

If you'll refer to my comment #5 and Jim C's comment #15, you'll have my take on why she went back to HER doctor for care, rather than relying on whichever doctor she may have seen at her current location.

If her side of the story is true (and nobody has indicated it wasn't), she behaved with the consent and direction of her OB physician, and all went quite well.

Would you have been comfortable at the conclusion of any of your high-risk pregnancies to trust whatever doctor you could find handy to take care of your particular needs, or would you have greatly preferred to see the obstetrician with whom you've been dealing the entire pregnancy for your delivery? Having been there, you certainly must recognize the value of continuity in care for circumstances such as that.

As I stated initially, I hope this gets LOTS of sunlight on it. We're seeing the opening salvos in a smear campaign the likes of which have never been seen.

The woman had gone through 4 pregnancies...I think she was familiar enough with her body to know if she was in labor and amniotic fluid "leadkign" is not the same as "waters breaking." Moreover, show of hands, ladies, how many of you - after your water broke - were told to walk around the hospital to help bring on the labor.

And yes...we all want OUR doctors when we're close to giving birth. She did not travel iwth an anticipation of labor occuring.

Finally, excuse me, but since when do women on the left tolerate MEN talking about what their doing with their uterus?

She demanded to be flown back to Tennessee - said no way her son was going to be born in Virginia! She labored all through the flight, and Tyler was born in Tennessee.

Bravo to Jennifer for recognizing what Alan was actually saying and not making stuff up like her rabid brethren. This wouldn't be such a big deal if these loonies weren't creating a false link to Down's from Alan's words. Heck, in the article Alan linked it was clearly stated that Down's was a separate issue identified much earlier.

Now that the *real* issue can actually be discussed correctly (oh I can dream can't I?) I would say that doing whatever you can for a child you are planning to have is much different from an abortion (As it is past the first trimester.) Being pro-choice doesn't mean you don't care about the condition of a child that WILL be born.

Colmes has put up a post explaining why he took down the original post, and also defending the original post. Here's the link to that piece of work (yeah, I'm trying really hard to keep my comments family friendly).

Basically, his response comes down to this; "I took the post down because those mean Republicans were saying mean things about me because of the post I put up. By the way, that post didn't say what everyone thought it said, but just in case it did... I should have been more clear about what I was trying to say". In other words, he first tries to weasel out of taking the post down by blaming the whole thing on mean republicans. Then he tries to weasel out of ever making the original post by claiming that it didn't say what everyone thought it said. Then he realizes that's not going to work, so he says "gee, I should have been more clear about what I was trying to say."

You know, it seems to me it would be much easier to just say something along the lines of I posted something really stupid and cold hearted and took it down out of embarassment. I apologize. Of course, then he wouldn't be the skelator we all know and love.

When my waters broke two we... (Below threshold)

When my waters broke two weeks early, my doctor told me to wait till I had labor pains to go to the hospital. He said that if I had no pains by the next morning (this was late afternoon), I should call him. He also said it was OK to go to a baby shower that night. On his advice, I went to the hospital 17 hours after my water broke. I tried walking to start labor and finally had to be induced.

Gov. Palin followed her doctor's advice. He thought she had enough time to fly home and it turned out he was right.

She is a liar and a dope smoker. She is corrupt and should not be near the Whitehouse, McCain is really slipping and it shows he is not able to make good decisions.

Colmes is just wrong :

When my wife was pregnant, she started having contractions on Saturday night and they stopped. She took a bath, and we went to bed. Sunday, we barely felt the baby moving around so we went to the hospital. They put on the baby heart monitor and all was well, except there was the odd drop in the heart rate a couple of times over the 4 hours we were there. Monday, my wife had an appointment with the doc anyway doing the non-stress test. They saw the heart rate drop a couple of times and decided to take a closer look. They moved her over to the hospital and the baby was on a pulse monitor when the pulse dropped. About 10 people rushed in, got the baby moving by pushing my wife around which trying to get her undressed. The pulse went back up and they decide to admit her. This was at 10am. They kept an eye on her all day and decided to induce labor. The baby didn't like the contractions so they decided to put her in for a C-Section. However, at this point the shifts changed and a new doctor came on. She decided to an ultrasound to see what was going on.

Turns out my wife's water had broken while she was in the bath, our baby had spent another 2 days without water, and it was only in the evening did someone think to do an ultrasound.

So remember this, water breaking doesn't mean that much and doctors can often miss the simplest of things, and the more I deal with them, the more I feel they aren't sure what they are doing when obvious logical steps aren't taken. For this reason, it's probably quite easy to find a doctor to backup your politically biased assertion.

Oh, and as for the baby, he's fine, and turning 3 next month. In honor of the events surrounding his birth we don't give him anything to drink for the 2 days before his birthday (j/k).

heh. Bowers and Joel F's posts show a couple of things: 1)it's laughable the left consider themselves intellectuals, and 2) this pick has them shaking...really shaking.

Now she's a dope smoker and would have had an abortion. ROFL. Really, keeping going. I haven't laughed so hard and felt so much pity for someone in so long.....

She used pot once and didn't lie about it, (unlike Biden) when it was legal in Alaska, unlike Obama who used marijuana and cocaine on multiple occasions when it was illegal. And by the way, you claimed she is a liar and corrupt. Care to elaborate? Apparently you have stumbled on to a deep dark secret that nobody other than you knows. Maybe you just really hate women? Have mommy issues, do we?

Kevin -

Don't you understand? Simply making the accusation of corruption is supposed to be sufficient to cause everyone to start screaming and running away from her. Whether it's true or not should have NO bearing whatsoever on the situation.

Man, I hate those drive-by shit-slingers.

Actually, according to my OBY/GYN you have 24 hours before you need to report to the hospital. Someone who says "right away" is afraid of law suits.

And, for the record, I can speak from personal experience that you can have a healthy baby if you do wait. My mom waited 12 hours after her water broke to go in for me, and I gave my son 24 hours (didn't want to be on Pit if I didn't need it).

She had four babies before Trig...she KNEW she wasn't in labor.

A lot of consblogs jumped all over Obama's campaign, and rightly so, for demanding that WGN do something similar for hosting an Obama critic.

Senator McCain, would you please stop with this silly equivocation between Stanley Kurtz having his civil rights violated, and alan "Look Ma, No Scruples!" colmes. One is a victim of intimidation by the Obamessiahs' crime family, and the other is a professional charecter assassin.

Please to explain sir, why do so many of "us" find it necessary to legitimate these scumsuckers by aligning them with people acting heroically in the face of thugs and criminals? I just don't get it. Why would you want to get along with vermin like that?

Last evening I see the "Sarah Palin isn't the mother emails" and now I see the left is questioning if she had proper care (as if they were there see every single test, doctor visit and vitamin she put into her body to even ask the question)

Let me just say this - we all knew this race was going to get dirty, and Sarah was aware of what she was getting into but if someone questions Obama on, say, ties to Crime in Chicago it's totally and 100% off limit. Not only that, the person who asked it is evil!

Talk about a double standard!

Interestingly enough, when I was pregnant with my first son in 1989 - my water broke, but I wasn't having any contractions. The doc advised me to hang out at home and don't bother coming in to the hospital until my contractions were 5-7 minutes apart.

So, I hung out..and didn't go to the hospital until 12 hours later. I delivered a healthy baby boy - - and, in retrospect, could have taken a flight - - or two, in the time I waited.

For him to be advising Gov. Palin like this is ridiculous and arrogant.

Ann J.:

Colmes is such a chickensh*t. Always the one to have a snarky remark as his guests are cut off the air. Always the one with the innuendos and lefty talking points. Now, writes something on his blog, only to take it down when the heat comes on. What a wuss. Time for Fox to give him a map, a moped and a shove.

Oh, and if Alan thinks that I'm the only one who understands that he can't change history, have him review the half-dozen other commenters here that grabbed a copy as well. :-)

The thing is, the Left loves to think that everyone they preach TO, and ABOUT, are more stupid than they are. After decades of this, they believe their own propaganda.

I have always disliked Alan Colmes, but today he has reached a new low. I am so disgusted by his and other left winger's attempts to destroy a 17 year old girl and now her mother over the birth of a child. Just goes to show you that nothing is sacred. Not even the birth of a child..but then again we are talking about the left here. I just hope that Alan Colmes never ever creates life (doubt he has the b*!!$ for it)- Imagine the shame his child would have to face -- oh that's right Alan Colme's isn't a prolifer......Nevermind..

DAMN! I knew it was coming I just didn't know from where! It wasn't kos or DU it was some nutjob lefty from elsewhere....


"I DO think she [Palin] flew at a dangerous time in her pregnancy and then took her time getting to a hospital in an attempt to force a miscarriage, however. Or I suspect that's the case, and there's no way to prove that."

I knew it! I knew it! I knew it! And it frightens me because they are all so effing crazy and they VOTE!!!!!!!!!

Colms Radio show recieved a call from a conservative stating he voted against Obama BUT
stands behind the new president in unity for America. Colms brushed him off and then does a tirate against conservatives and Republicians.
Can Colms be considered an American for America or is Colmes showing his stripes as one against Americans and unity? A trador to united America? Well, if Colms posts his comment you will have a answer. As for me - I consider Colms as one who is against America with zero pride in the American system. There is no trust in colms at any level.

Hmmmm we are talking about down syndrome here. I don't see a problem with the abortion. His action has prevented a lot of potential suffering and thanks to our medical advancement, his decision was able to manifest. It sucks to kill an unborn but it sucks even more if the unborn was introduced into society.
