Keep it classy, CNN, MSNBC and the mainstream media

Well, learn something every day.  MSNBC made fun of the protests last night, especially Rachel Maddow, Shuster adds his two cents, and CNN tops it off by having a little giggle party between Anderson Cooper and David Gergen (senior political analyst) when Anderson said it’s hard to talk when you’re “tea- bagging.”

Well. Went right over my head.  I admit it.

But I am so glad that Greg Gutfield ‘splained the vulgar meaning of tea-bagging.  Leave it to what is/was considered to be a respected cable news network.  But seeing as how they couldn’t control the story, and really didn’t want to cover it at all, the best they could do is make jokes about it and laugh at American citizens who just don’t happen to agree with what is going on in this country and who are exercising their/our right to free speech and assembly.  These are hard-working, law-abiding citizens, mothers, fathers, families, ex-military, parents with children now serving in the military, voters, consumers, the people who keep this country running.  More and more people are becoming aware of the game the MSM is playing and more and more people tune them out.

But as I said, keep it classy, MSM.

Anyway, read the backstory Here.

See Michelle Malkin.com for a synopsis of about 800 gatherings today and some great pictures.
