Not too shabby, huh? It goes for about $7,000 a night.
H/T: Huffington Post
I watched about five minutes of a certain morning show this morning before I had to change the channel, but I heard a guy at the table, I guess what they call the round table, making some pretty astonishing statements.
I can’t remember the exact numbers he cited but he said there was a poll showing a large number of republicans who believe Obama is not a citizen, and another number showing some republicans believe he is the anti-Christ. He at first said this was a Rasmussen poll, but then changed it to a New Jersey poll. (I guess he was referring to this)
Then he made the statement that there were some republicans who actually compare Sarah Palin to Esther of the Bible. Well, can you think of a more despicable idea than that? That’s the one that got me ticked off. Imagine someone having the audacity to think of a biblical character.
I didn’t know who he was but I searched around and found out his name. He has a new book that is #15 on the bestseller list. Fifteen, not too good. I won’t even mention the name of it because I don’t want to type it.
I noticed that a lot, if not all, of his “work” is very anti-Christian.
But why would we need Christ? We have Obama.
They should never have given him a “place at the table” because he is renowned for making gotcha films ranging from some drunk Jewish-Americans, Michelle Malkin (“Michelle Malkin goes unhinged and launches a hysterical tirade into the lens of my camera”), Sarah Palin (“The witch hunter annoints Sarah Palin”) to, more recently, a film on the 9/12 protesters, where he “captures the protest’s atmosphere of ignorance by interviewing the rally’s most delusional attendees.”
But when you see where “his work” has been featured, it all comes together.
His work has been featured on NPR, MSNBC, The Nation, Washington Monthly, The American Prospect, The Huffington Post, Salon Magazine, Al Jazeera English, Alternet, Democracy Now, Countdown with Keith Olbermann, and The Rachel Maddow Show. He also writes for the Daily Beast.
Top it off:
He is also a Puffin Writing Fellow at the New York-based Nation Institute, a research fellow for “Media Matters for America.”
That just about says it all.
Seems to me to be a hateful little man who has little tolerance for views other than his own. But how could this be? Isn’t he on the loving left?
UPDATE: This is the poll he was referring to — one done by the Daily Kos – not exactly the most reliable poll, to be sure. Goes right along with his Media Matters credentials.
