MSNBC on Newt and Lady O

MSNBC on Newt and Lady O

Today's entry comes from the PowerWall blog, an extension of WonderWall, a property of MSNBC, which is of course a subsidiary of MSN. Of course, is a blog a certain amount of artistic liberty is allowed, but I believe it is safe to say that MSNBC is a left wing news outlet. But just how left wing are they? Take a look at their latest article on Republican hopeful Newt Gingrich, compared to their take on the First Lady in a photo gallery linked right beside the article.

First let's talk about Newt. The idea that he's a serious presidential candidate is preposterous. Even if he were the nominee, he'd get about 44 percent of the vote. He'd say crazy things. He'd reignite the whole Obama-is-a-Kenyan-anticolonialist business. Or he'd think up something newer and weirder. He'd be a disaster. I'd submit that even his home state of Georgia would be in play if he were the nominee. Georgia right-wingers would turn out in droves to support him, for sure. But the state's left-wingers would turn out in droves to vote against him, and its moderates would probably tilt against him. He could conceivably do worse in a general election than Herman Cain.

Well it's clear to see that those are some pretty harsh words. And of course, the trashing isn't limited to that one paragraph. With a scalding like that, I am almost afraid to hear what they will have to say about the First Lady.

Flotus Fashion: Mrs. O shows the rest of us how to dress to the nines for any occasion.

Of course, the link is to a photo gallery which is filled with glowing words about a wide variety of Lady O outfits, and what occasion each is suitable for. Somewhat glaringly conspicuous from the list was Michelle's "I Just Lost My Job In The Obama Economy" sweatshirt and stained T, suitable for joining the other 1,999,999 Americans who have lost employment on her husbands watch in the local unemployment line or soup kitchen.

Yes, Michelle may know how to "dress to the nines" while the Country struggles to get by, but thanks to MSNBC we see that dressing for the "Nine Nine Nine's" might be the way to go in 2012. After all, Herman Cain has a much stronger chance of getting elected than does Gingrich, right guys?

I find the Gingrich article to be more humorous than offensive. Yes Newt has some baggage, but so do the homeless people living in their cars thanks to the terrible Obama economy. Will they vote for Newt? Most likely not. But it is rather funny to see the left assume they will step over their own baggage to pull the lever for the guy who is Presiding over this mess.

    Watered Down Travel Ban

    I have some friends and family who supported President Trump from early on in the process. From time to time they will ask me when I will admit that I was wrong about him. "If Trump does x... If Trump gets y... If Trump supports a policy that results in z... will you admit that you were wrong?" My answer is always "no", because I wasn't wrong. To be clear, I could be wrong in practical application, but that isn't what an election is about. Elections are about theory and speculation and, generally speaking about judging records. Trump had no record to speak of, and his history of stances on issues was all over the map. I opposed his candidacy for several major reasons, all of which are proven valid in this single issue we now refer to as the "travel ban". Here were my reasons.

    Fraudulent Rant by Judge Jeanine

    If you're not familiar with Justice with Judge Jeanine, it is a show on the FOX News Network starring Jeanine Pirro. She is known for her over-the-top rants where she serves up gobs of fresh red meat for her largely hard right wing audience. While it's not unusual for her to be a little fast and loose with the facts, she has been known to occasionally return from the break with a correction from her producers. Last night, however, there was no such correction to an outright lie she told on the show, and the matter being discussed should have (at the very least) contained a disclaimer from the host. I would cut her some slack, but as a former prosecutor and judge, she should be well aware of what proper protocol should have been here.

    Wake The Hell Up, GOP!

    It's not cute anymore, Republicans. The President of the United States is completely detached from reality, and you can't fix that. You can't cover it up, you can't explain it away, and let me make this as clear as I possibly can for you. You cannot possibly undo the damage you are doing to the party brand by trying to pretend this man is anything other than completely unhinged. I'm watching Sean Hannity borrow guests from the Alex Jones show in an attempt to bolster Trump's conspiratorial claims. I'm seeing relatively mainstream conservatives make themselves look like the crazed fringes of the paranoid right wing. Don't believe me? Look at this.
