No wonder he won that blogger of the year award. Yesterday, after seeing the Tebow ad that had pro-abortion folks in a tizzy all week, Ed predicted that someone on the other side would claim the ad was akin to domestic violence. Here’s the ad, in case you missed it:
Like some latter day Nostradamus of the interwebs, Ed wrote yesterday:
the people who shrieked over CBS’ completely understandable decision to allow Focus on the Family to buy ad space will have to find some reason to justify their panic. Want to bet that someone will gripe about making light of domestic violence?
Within hours the prediction had been fulfilled. Have a look at this absurd response from the president of NOW:
NOW president Terry O’Neill said it glorified violence against women. “I am blown away at the celebration of the violence against women in it,” she said. “That’s what comes across to me even more strongly than the anti-abortion message. I myself am a survivor of domestic violence, and I don’t find it charming. I think CBS should be ashamed of itself.”
It’s just so utterly pathetic and desperate. It sounds like something Media Matters would put out. But somehow I’m not surprised that the president of NOW has no shame.
In any case, congratulations to Ed who nailed it. I wish he’d just tell me what the stock market is going to do next week so I could make a few bucks.
