Tea party favorite Dana Loesch, the editor-in-chief of Andrew Breitbart’s Big Journalism and a CNN political analyst, is a big fan of the Marines who were videotaped urinating on Taliban corpses, and would gladly “drop trou and do it too,” she said on her radio show yesterday. “That’s me though,” she said, incredulous that such an event could be a scandal. “I want a million cool points for these guys. Is that harsh to say? Come on people, this is a war. What do people think this is?” On Twitter today, she can’t believe anyone is outraged, at her or the troops.
“I was actually defending them from the ridiculousness of the reaction, but you wouldn’t know that since you repeat hype,” Loesch wrote to one critic. “Speaking of defile, you’re pro abortion, right?” she shot at another. “You all took the bait and proved my point. You folks never change,” she added.
Loesch’s baiting and railing demonstrate that she is very good at being a conservative radio host for a station in St. Louis; she may be a little extreme for mainstream cable news.
