Giving Credit Where Credit’s Due

Larry Pratt, head of GOA, does a pretty bang-up job of handling Piers Morgan:

I think every time you get discouraged, or think this struggle is too difficult, or too time consuming, just watch yourself some Piers Morgan. He’ll fire you right back up.

h/t to Miguel who has more.

UPDATE: Dave Weigel on Twitter: “Piers Morgan is doing Mike Bloomberg a favor by becoming the new most insufferable gun control advocate.”

Yeah, really.

    The best part of this “interview”… aside from Morgan getting his behind handed to him, and acting like a petulant child… is when he starts whining “Stop laughing! Stop laughing (at me)!”

    • TS says:

      It is a toss up between that and “you are an incredibly stupid man”. When you have no answer other than “you’re stupid”, you’ve lost the argument: see Laci the Dog. And this coming from a professional TV talk show host?

      He gave Alan Gottlieb the same “stop smiling” bit. Both Gottlieb and Pratt were smiling because of his constant interrupting.

  2. I took Miguel’s statement, looked up the data on Wikipedia and turned it all into graphs.

    When you look at it we don’t look half bad.

    Piers, like many Leftists is REALLY racist.

    I taught elementary school for a while, and the remarkable thing is, by 3rd or 4th grade, most of my kids realized that you already lost the argument if you were reduced to name calling. Who’s smarter than a fifth grader? Apparently not Mr. Morgan.

    as someone totally opposed to gun control, I try to get as many people as possible to watch good old piers!

    I’m not usually a big Larry Pratt fan but I too have to take my hat off to him for that performance.

    I think we are giving Piers too much attention however.

    I wish we could deport that Smug, Mary Poppins motherfucker back to England where all the poofters live. (No offense to Sebastian’s gay readers, any of whom are probably more of a man than all of those British weenies combined!)

    • Crotalus says:

      No! Don’t deport him! Keep him! He’s doing so much damage to the gun control freaks!

    Piers Morgan is a reminder of what the American Revolution got us away from, and why it’s been such a good couple hundred years for us, while Britain has declined miserably. I wouldn’t be surprised if one of Piers ancestors was responsible for inspiring the Second Amendment. I suppose that, at least in part, one was.
    Piers Morgan’s soul is a pink rubber bag made in China with a hose and a nozzle.

    Amazing how calm he is at being called names.


  1. SayUncle » Is it 1775? Because there’s this angry British guy demanding Americans be disarmed - [...] with ‘You’re an Unbelievably Stupid Man, Aren’t You?’ instead of, you know, making his case. It’s to be expected.…
