Yesterday, a hall-of-fame level jackass, Eric Boehlert, was excoriated on Twitter for implying that Navy Seal Team 6 was gutless.
I like the Maggie’s Notebook summary:
From the first photo below, you see that Media Matters’ Eric Boehlert, on the left, is clearly NOT gutless, he’s a muffin top. Every SEAL I’ve had the pleasure to see was clearly a flat belly. Believe me, Eric Boehlert is not only NOT a flat belly, he’s not the sharpest knife in the drawer either. In 2008, Boehlert predicted Fox News was dead meat (or in his actual words “F**ked). A quick look at Boehlert’s work at Media Matters and elsewhere shows that he will not vote for Mitt Romney, and he is ticked that the SEALs, SpecOps and US Intel in the Dishonorable Disclosures project might do so. The nerve of those SEALs.
More here – including the Muffin Top pic.
But if you have the time, I’m reposting the video that started it all – the Navy Seals’ dressing down of Obama.
