  1. #1 Dem Analyst Attempts Chuckle At Dem Catholic For Ashes.

    JOE BIDEN RIDICULED FOR WEARING ASHES

    February 17, 2010

    Fox News analyst Bob Beckel today criticized Vice President Joe Biden for wearing ashes on TV; today is Ash Wednesday and Biden is Catholic.

    In the middle of a discussion on President Obama’s stimulus plan, Beckel gratuitously said, “Sorry about laughing, but I looked at Joe Biden’s forehead, and I know it is Ash Wednesday, but I’m not sure I would wear that ash on the air. Anyway….”

    Catholic League president Bill Donohue wasn’t amused:

    Bob Beckel’s admonishing remark, “I’m not sure I would wear that ash on the air,” makes us wonder whether it is the public display of ashes he finds risible, or the religion that sports them.

    In any event, there is no record of Beckel ever lecturing a Jew about wearing a yarmulke on TV or a Muslim wearing a turban. Must be something about Catholicism that bothers this guy. We’d love to know what it is. At the very least, a clarification about what he meant is in order.
    Surely Biden, of all people, should repent over his many flaws and outright sins. That he may be doing so privately is no matter for public amusement. A Brit newsie also apparently believed that cultural religious practices were off limits to whites (I doubt she would have commented on a Muslim woman's scarf). :mad:

    I'm surprised Oprah didn't try to wipe them off.
    "Our president delivered his State of the Union message to Congress. That is one of the things his contract calls for -- to tell congress the condition of the country. This message, as I say, is to Congress. The rest of the people know the condition of the country, for they live in it, but Congress has no idea what is going on in America, so the president has to tell 'em." ~ Will Rogers

    Beckel is an all around a** hole looking for a laugh.Perhaps we should bring up his procurement of a HO and paying for her by credit card!

    I'm surprised Bob got caught saying something stupid like that. Frankly I like him and a
    remark like that really seems strange. Oh well...
    May the FORCE be with you!

    Beckel has always reminded me of a big city slime politician, a Chicago type. This behavior doesn't surprise me.
