Joke of the Day: “MSNBC is a news operation” says Maddow

This is is rich.  Rachel Maddow, says:  “MSNBC is not a political operation.  Fox is.  We are a news operation.” 🙂  🙂  🙂

Now, Rachel it’s just not right to lie.  I guess it’s easy though if the truth is not in you.

She is so focused on finding something to criticize Fox about that she either can’t see or does not care what her own network does.

What a circus this network is.  Just throw a tent over it.  She was able to find one incident where someone asked for money on FOX.  As you will see in the video, there are so many times a candidate asked for money and referenced a website on MSNBC it’s just too many to count.  Right after she makes that profound statement, uh, lie, whoever put the clips together inserted one word used by suspended clown Keith Olbermann – “fart.”  Oh, the depth of thought…..That just about says it all as to MSNBC being a professional news operation

.

Thank goodness at least one money hawker on MSNBC, Alan Grayson, D-FL, was defeated and maybe we won’t have to hear from him again.

Ms Maddow’s examples of this happening on FNC? A grand total of: one. John Kasich, appearing on Hannity, gave out his website URL and encouraged donations. It’s the only example Maddow gave because it’s the one Media Matters cited. That’s called ‘journalism’.

Chris Matthews vs Zell Miller – Flashback (Video)

I am still upset about the election coverage of MSNBC, and it brought to my mind this encounter of Zell Miller with Chris Matthews.  The same Chris Matthews who browbeat Michele Bachmann and Marsha Blackburn Tuesday night.  I added this to the post about the coverage, but I thought it was worth a separate post here.  Mr. Miller is what I would call a southern gentleman, something Chris Matthews knows nothing about.  Enjoy.

WIPE OUT!! Ding, Dong the Witch is Dead – Thank you, Rush (Video)

I would never have thought anything about this but Rush just said that some self-proclaimed feminists were upset by the fact he played this on Wednesday.  I didn’t hear this when it aired, but he’s going on about it today.  Can you actually believe some phoney women’s group is complaining about this, after any number of conservative women have been mocked and called every name in the book, and not one little peep out of any of them.  Makes me sick.  And this, after the treatment that I wrote about after I watched MSNBC election night as I watched them treat Bachmann and Blackburn like they were dog poop on national tv.  What a bunch of assholes.  To disagree is one thing, but after all, they are both elected officials of this country and deserve at least a degree of respect for that alone.

This video is really hillarious, especially now that I am doing it just to honor Rush for making it part of his program and now taking the flak for it.  I may be playing it quite a bit because it makes me LAUGH.  Be sure to listen to the end because there’s another hilarious song called something like It’s big, It’s Nationwide.

Don’t like to see people mistreated and don’t usually like to gloat.  But gloat I will.  The conservatives/republicans beat the snot out of the administration and their agenda.  The natural born snot!!  And Rush is right  – the winners don’t have to compromise with the losers.  If there had been any measure of compromise, there would not be the healthcare law as it now stands.  That’s the way they roll.  Shut the doors, give us the middle finger, and if you don’t like it “that’s what elections are for.”  Yep.  That’s for sure.  Now we’ve had the election.  Deal with it.

And, yes, it is big.  What was it, 65 seats?  Something like that.  and how many state legislatures turned republican.  How many governorships?

I want to thank Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, and other conservative voices who have been voices crying in the wilderness for a long time.  I didn’t even listen to either one of them until Obama the president of the United States called out Rush Limbaugh by name.  That was so low class.  I said right then and there Rush just gained a new listener.

Republicans clean out the House of Representatives

FLASHBACKApril 21.2009, Washington Post, Chris Callizza:

House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (Va.) said in a recent interview that Republicans retaking the majority is not entirely out of the question in the 2010 midterm elections.

“I’m very confident we will pick up seats midterm if we do the necessary work of finding good candidates,” Cantor said. “I don’t remove the prospect that we could take the majority back in 2010.”

Is this simply spin from a House Republican leader who needs to say something to keep his members and the party’s grassroots base engaged? Or is there a real chance for a Republican House in 2010?

The answer is, it depends.

…..

To be clear, the strong probability is that Republicans will pick up seats in 2010 but will come up well short of the 40-seat gain they need to reclaim control.

May, 2009:

Michael Grunwald, Time magazine said:

“These days, Republicans have the desperate aura of an endangered species.”

(I can just see him rubbing his unbiased hands together in unrestrained glee.)

*****

Fast Forward:  November 2, 2010:

Republicans win control of the House of Representatives with a win of 61 seats – at least.  There may be as many as 67 when all is said and done.

Republicans gain 6 seats in the Senate, only four short to win control.  Harry and Barney and Madam Boxer slither through.

Republicans gain 7 – maybe 10 or more governorships.

Now, slam on the breaks, take the keys out of the car, and have a Slurpee.  🙂

“That this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of Freedom”

Today’s the day when we begin to take our country back to its constitutional foundation, one seat at a time, one state at a time.

I heard a politician in a challenged seat lamenting, “At the street level, they know the ratio of debt to GDP.”  Ha. This supposed “riff-raff” group of American citizens have been called many names, ignorant  being one of them.  But that’s the problem for the politician who has ruled against the will of the people, the electorate is wide awake and extremely informed.  And we are everywhere.  From sea to shining sea.

We said that “We Will Remember in November.”  I hope it’s a clean sweep.   It’s a beginning and a beginning only.  The real fight starts tomorrow.  This is America – back to “Of the People, By the People, For the People.”

God Bless Us All.

Then and Now: Decline of Barack Obama

The First one is a Joke – these Next two are for Real

Yesterday, the president and the vice-president appeared together in Cleveland.

CLEVELAND — The arena where President Obama and Vice President Biden are making their final appeal to Democrats to get out and vote in Tuesday’s midterm elections was far from capacity Sunday afternoon.

The crowd estimate stands at 8,000 in the arena that seats just over 13,000 and a couple thousand empty seats are visible above the stage where Obama and Biden rallied supporters.

Obama also had to stop to lecture some of his supporters who were heckling and interrupting his speech as he was in Connecticut for “Dick” (not really a Viet Nam Vet) Blumenthal yesterday.

I heard yesterday the protesters were removed from the arena, but I can’t find anything further about that, so maybe not.
