Compassionate Consevatives Speak: "Shut Up, Elitist Creep!"

Charles Hurt / Washington Times:
Shut up, Jimmy Kimmel, you elitist creep  —  ANALYSIS/OPINION:  —  This is why America hates Hollywood.  —  Late night “funny” man Jimmy Kimmel delivered a heart-wrenching monologue Monday night that every mother and every father could relate to.  —  In the emotion-drunk moments last month …
Essentially this is an anger reaction to the death of Affordable Care Act repeal & replacement. All their lies on the subject have been exposed, & when Kimmel makes a clear & simple case for Affordable Care he becomes the target of their now-powerless rage, shouting "Politics!" as if the entire mess has ever been anything but political & "Using his children's health problems!" whatever that means in this context.
Conservatives soon began their attacks on Kimmel for daring to speak about politics. Washington Times columnist Charles Hurt wrote an especially vile piece titled, “Shut up, Jimmy Kimmel, you elitist creep,” stating that Kimmel’s monologue “went horribly awry” for talking about “grubby, dirty politics.” Hurt described Kimmel’s plea to provide healthcare to children as a “slobbering wet kiss to federal bureaucracy,” and called him a “dirty, self-absorbed, narcissistic exhibitionist.” He also demanded Kimmel, “shut your fat trap about partisan politics and go care for your kid, who just nearly died, you elitist creep.”
We can only hope this means a future w/o the usual right-wing idiots going on about their children.
