Fred V. Keller : "Michelle Obama is a C***."

Remember the outrage from some on the right when illyT made reference to Jessica McBride in a rather unflattering way? I sure do, and I'd love to know if those same folks will now gnash their teeth and express their outrage at one of their own, former FranklinNOW blogger Fred V. Keller. In response to a photo of four individuals wearing shirts that used the "C" word in reference to Sarah Palin, Fred said:

Two things immediately popped into my head when I saw this picture:

1. Hey, look, these four Mensa members misspelled Michelle Obama.
2. So, what does this make Joe Biden?

Of course I questioned Fred on whether he was implying Michelle Obama was a "C," and Fred's response went a little something like this:
Actually, Zach, you're correct, I am implying Michelle Obama is a cunt. There are times when I won't "turn the other cheek," and this is one of those times. This is beyond the pale.

I know I'm outraged, because that kind of rhetoric should never be acceptable, and I'm wondering if those same folks who were so quick to attack illyT will now condemn Fred Keller as well.


  1. I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you. I'm still waiting for the wingers to condemn this t-shirt.

    I also don't know why you even read Keller's garbage. The fool doesn't even know his right from his left.

    Must be something to do with the name Fred. It makes them insane or something.

  2. I read Fred's blog because it's like a car crash...I don't want to look but I can't stand to tear my eyes away.

  3. Yet no condemnation of the Palin t-shirt. How pathetic, sad and disgusting. I would expect better of liberals, but I guess not.

  4. It was me who left the last comment.

  5. Actually, Dan, Zach did cover it in the last paragraph. Nice knee jerk reaction, though.

  6. Sorry, but Zach certainly did not make it clear what he is outraged about. I stand by my comment.

  7. You know what, Dan, who cares? The point of the post was about Fred Keller, not the fools in the t-shirts. So, because those nitwits wear stupid ass t-shirts with an incredibly insensitive statement, it's somehow okay for Keller to do the same?

    Let's note than in all of Dan's sanctimonious whinings he has yet to condemn Keller's use of that ugly word.

    What an ass!

    1. Agreed. I wonder if he uses that word on his wife or daughter? I know he has used it on his sister.

  8. Yeah, the point of this blog entry was to point out how Fred feels about Michelle Obama, but for the record Dan, I think that kind of language has no place in our political dialogue, no matter who's using it.
