Quote of the day
Posted by: McQ on Friday, March 31, 2006

Howie Kurtz on Jill Carroll's release and subsequent statements on her treatment:
Why make a terrorist group who put her family and friends through a terrible three-month ordeal sound like they were running a low-budget motel chain?

Of course, Kurtz goes on to say:

when that interview was taped, Carroll was still in the custody of a Sunni political party with ties to the insurgency.

But hey, why not trash her anyway.

Good grief, I wasn’t trashing her.

While my sense of humor may be somewhat warped, I thought his characterization was funny (if you’ve read her description). Call it black humor if you will but I got a chuckle out of it.

I meant Kurtz, should have been more clear, sorry (I was likely influenced having just come from redstate.com where the comments to a post on the same Kurtz line are revolting).

My quote of the day is Pelosi, saying of a member of Congress punching a cop "I would not make a big deal of this"

Fair enough. For whatever reason the "low budget motel" in the context of a terrorist kidnapping and then her description of her treatment just struck me funny.

You really want a good sense of where many wingers stand on jill, surf on over to Little Green Footballs. I would re-print some of the comments here, but they are beyond disgusting. They aren’t just nutty, they are scary.

She is alive. She has survived 3 months of imminent death. Joking aside she deserves a salute.

Regarding the comments at LGF, I read some last night and I saw some that were awful and some that were reasonable and supportive of Jill.
