From Howard Kurtz of the Washington Post, to Imus in the Morning minions Bernard McGuirk and Charles McCord, to the shrieky Little Green Footballers on the Internet, and Ultimate Yellow Elephant Jonah Goldberg, you'd think Carroll was the bloodthirsty re-morphing of Osama Bin Laden.
Via Think Progress: From Imus In The Morning, 3/31/06
Don IMUS: She’d have made a bigger dent had she hit the ground because, than she ordinarily would have, because she put on 20 pounds.How vile and sexist can they get? Plenty. Making fun of her weight, then saying it's because she's now pregnant. Oh, and by Zarqawi. Carroll might not then measure up to the famed Bill Napoli South Dakota rape test: sodomized virgins only need apply.
MCCORD: Put on 20 pounds while in captivity, yeah.
MCGUIRK: And why, do we suspect?
IMUS: Well, why do you suspect?
MCGUIRK: She’s carrying Zarqawi’s baby. No doubt about it.
IMUS: Man, you are a such a, you’re a…
MCGUIRK: Did you hear her comments yesterday? She’s wearing the terrorist headgear, and everything points to that.
IMUS: Well, we don’t know. That initial interview — she was taken directly from captivity to that location to conduct an interview with an Arab broadcasting outlet. I think she probably was circumspect in what she was saying, don’t you think Charles?
MCCORD: Well, it is well known that her sympathies lie with the Arab community, not only in Iraq, by the way, but across the region, as pointed out by the Jordan Times in a couple of editorials who had called for her release, saying that they were "silencing a pro-Iraqi voice and harming the Arab and Iraqi cause." The Jordan Times wrote, "She is more critical of U.S. policies than many Arabs."
IMUS: Are we suggesting she’s in lock-step with the terrorists?
MCGUIRK: Something smells.
MCCORD: No, not in lock-step with the terrorists, but she certainly is in lock-step with Arab causes.
IMUS: Well, probably not her, because one of the things she said they did was let her take showers all the time, so.
MCCORD: The Times writing, "She doesn’t just like Arab culture, she loves it. Jill makes one of the best ambassadors Arabs could ever hope for." That during the time of her captivity when they were editorializing there in Amman, Jordan for her release . .
MCCORD: Apparently according to Baghdad’s New Sabba news, "She loves Iraq and went by the name while in Iraq, not of Jill, but rather Zanaib."
MCGUIRK: She’s Taliban Janie, this girl. Taliban Jill or whatever. . .
MCGUIRK: Well except for the fact that she seems overly sympathetic. There’s something wrong. Something stinks.
MCCORD: Well, that was her position.
MCGUIRK: Again she’s wearing the terrorist headgear. She’s saying nice things about them.
IMUS: It’s not terrorist headgear, you moron.
MCGUIRK: It’s just traditional Arab garb, I would say.
IMUS: Thank you, Charles.
MCGUIRK: And I’m alleging she’s carrying Zarqawi’s baby.
Feh. What rock do these guys keep crawling out from under?
(Update here where Ms. Carroll surprises no one but Jonah Goldberg, the Imuses, and the reichwing hysterics, that her TV interview was conducted under the watchful eyes of three gentlemen with machine guns.)
(On a similar note, refresh your recollection here: "She Didn't Act Traumatized Enough.")
