Denial is a river that runs right through the heart of MSNBC.
These people are parodies of parodies…
That sounds like stick practice for a drummer.
MSNBC’s 1%ers announced “Big Money” won? Last I checked, that was who Walker’s supporters were fighting.
No, no, no. By big money they meant the unions. Wait a minute. The unions lost. Oh, the pain.
They’re “reality” based.
I think you mean “reality challenged.”
Just more proof that acid consumes 47 times its weight in excess reality.
Wasn’t that the stuff that the Florida cannibal was supposedly inhaling?
Maddow Eats Fat Eddie’s Face Off
Now for that, I could watch, msnbc.
Hell, I’d HAVE to buy the extended version…!!!
Who the hell clicked “dislike” for this hilarious comment (and one below)? Please, identify yourself. Did you have a mouse malfunction?
It was me, Rachel Maddow, masquerading as Towson Lawyer. I thought that I had you fooled.
Makes sense! Public unions cannibalize taxpayer dollars.
My God – they must be actually inhaling it.
We keep trying to tell them: To Serve Man is a cookbook.
Cookbook? Progressives? Pow Wow Chow?
It all makes sense now….
“To Serve Man” is a science fiction short story written by Damon Knight.
The title is a double entendre, meaning either “to perform a service for humanity” or “to serve a human as food.”
If money is the only factor in elections, then Meg Whitman would be governor of California. She lost the election even though she spent over six times more than her opponent, Jerry Brown.
Whitman spent $160 million. $140 million of it her own money. Jerry Brown only spent $24 million.
Do they all consume the same hallucinatory drug?
“Memories are made from this”…???
FANTASIES are made from this!
“It was a big night for Obama.”
Wul, yah. But not in a good way…
Amazing, isn’t it? These so-called members of the fourth estate no long even try to hide their bias. I’ll bet even if obama started sending people to death camps, these people would still support him and not report his actions. Congress did, after all, give him the tool to do this. Communists all. I’ve wondered for a long time if members of congress are stupid or on the take. Probably both.
You see how they’re all decrying his apparent growing addiction to video war games, assassination by drone. /sarc
I left journalism back in the mid-1970s. Post-Watergate, people who came to the field were ideologues, plus with the huge influx of people with other resources (i.e. Daddy’s dirty old money), people like myself could not survive. I’ve never looked back, except in longing regret, sad for a profession that used to take seriously its Constitutionally-mandated watchdog role.
The once-Free Press, the vaunted Fourth Estate, has now become a willing Fifth Column for the Democratic Party. Thank God for the Internet and bloggers, who are indeed the latter-day equivalent of the old-time Pamphleteers!
Puuur Ms. Madcow.
She just could not take it in that her daddy network had thrown her under the bus…
in 49 minutes….
I think you nailed it, Rags. Madcow was looking forward to some serious on-air time. What a shock it must have been to find out that her “election night marathon” had turned into a sprint.
Democrats have this quaint idea that elections are crooked unless they win and, as we have found out, they will work them until they do win.
Maybe we can make ’em feel better if we give ’em a losers’ trophy.
Also, is it me, or does Rachael Madcow always look like she’s just has a snort of crank or taken a handful of diet pills?
TJS, they don’t recognize losers. One of the networks referred to Tom Barret as the “runner-up”.
The thing is: Dems always assume everyone behaves as they themselves do. They KNOW that they win by cheating the election process, so if they lose, they think that the Republicans must have cheated their way to the win.
This projection is why they call right-wingers “racist.”
You see, I have an interesting perspective because I lead two very separate lives – one permeated by the left and the other permeated by the right. I can tell you that behind closed doors the right is exactly what you see in public. But the left behind closed doors talks of murdering their conservatives in gruesome, sadistic fashion… then they get up to the microphone and say, “We love our troops, that’s why we want to bring them home!” B.S.! They despise anyone in uniform. (I could give a long list of similar two-faced blathering.)
So they think that the right is the same: they think, “Behind closed doors they are as crazy as we are.” So they take what they see Republicans do and say in public and then extrapolate it into a demented behind-closed-doors version with their nasty imaginiations. Hence, the “racist” garbage they fling around. Hence, the weird reasons they concoct for right-wingers being pro-life (“Hatred of women,” “Controlling people’s lives,” “Fear of sexuality,” etc.) when the truth is exactly what’s said in public: It’s murder; don’t do it.
The left is truly unhinged and dangerous.
Rkae, you are right. I’ve worked for both parties. At Dem headquarters the bigwigs were constantly huddling in the back room, out of sight and hearing of the troops. At Rep headquarters the back room had the coffee pot and people came and went at will. No one was ever shut out of a discussion…even the registered Dem they welcomed with open arms. I always felt a little sleazy after I’d put in a day at Dem headquarters but the feeling I had on leaving the Rep offices was sort of akin to the one I used to get leaving church.
Apparently pulling your coverage on election night (CNN) and lying about the outcome (MSNBC) are not winning strategy for news channels.
Good food and wine and friends…ah yes, memories!
I trust that PJ Media won’t mind that I quote my comment at Vodkapundit:
It’s interesting that MSNBC used the exit polls to hype a tightly contested race between Walker and Barrett. But those polls were wildly wrong. So what did they do next? They cited the same wildly incorrect exit polls to tout strong voter support for Obama.
They must think we’re idiots. Michael Barone calls bull— on them
Reweighted for the actual margin of Walker’s victory, the exit polls show a dead heat in Wisconsin between Romney and Obama. Thank you Mr. Barone.
I was thinking the exact same thing last night. Thanks for the link!
Excuse #1: Voter intimidation was rampant!
Response: Voter turn out set records.
Excuse #2: The Tea Party stuffed the box with fraudulent votes!
Response: You mean we should have required IDs at the polling places?
Excuse #3: This was a “bought” election thanks to the Citizens United decision.
Response: Oh, you mean to say your billionaires just put their money on the wrong ads then?
Good video here:
Hitler finds out that Scott Walker won the Wisconsin recall election
Sadly, that dialogue seems to fit the film all too well…..
I thought it was funny that all the conservatives weren’t watching FNC last night. They were watching MSNBC. AND WHAT A SHOW IT WAS!
The most truly unhinged was Lawrence O’Donnell et al. Man, they were nuts.
Were? Or still are?
[…] you love SCHADENFREUDE, check out Legal Insurrection’s MSNBC video. I love watching Rachel Maddow eat crow for dinner instead of […]
These people consider themselves professional, competent, intelligent, and observant?
Yeah. Journalists. Not “opinion” journalists even, but “unbiased” journalists.
Only one way to describe it: “delusional” seems to be the hardest word…for MSNBC, that is. (Sorry Elton.)
But not for me. 😉
They have no self-respect… all willing to fall on the sword of socialism. disgusting
Just to twist the knife….here is something for the liberals to chew on!!!
Breitbart and Palin speak up for Walker!!!
Oops, wrong link…it’s this one:
“Fight like a girl!!!”
The look of disbelief on all their faces was priceless.
Looks like the Democrats recaptured the WI Senate, though (subject to possible recount). 🙁
Yet another reason not to get overconfident for November, not that any should be needed.
Laurence O’Donnel talks about how other governors will look at Scott Walker and see how he “barely survived” and run away from similar policies.
First off, Wisconsin recall election laws are pretty much unique. Second, only a bot-head like O’Donnel could call the election margin “barely surviving”.
Great article in CFP:

When I can’t tell the difference between the report of a supposed newscaster and a guy in a bar who has had about a dozen beers, click. When I hear a supposed interview and the interviewee has just begun to respond to a question and gets interrupted (so that I have no idea what the answer to the question was), click. When there is a supposed informed discussion of a topic among several or more persons and they all begin to talk over one another (I can get this at the local tavern with twice the fun, plus I get to voice my own opinion), then click. When I turn to a broadcast of the news and get someone who sounds like a politician’s campaign manager, click.
Since I discovered I was doing quite a bit of “clicking,” I have abandoned nearly all MSM programming. The vid is a reminder of why I did so.
We need more good songs and lots of fireworks, even for those of us living in the state where absolutely nothing is ever allowed.
Gosh, Sousa’s Stars and Stripes Forever is a great melody.
Thanks, Joy. One of my favorite memories is going to be opening LI on Tuesday night, hearing the Stars and Stripes Forever and seeing the fireworks. That was a perfect match for the mood among us. We ought to start every day with this song.
I honored by your response and pray that the stars and stripes will forever stand for freedom.
It’s fascinating that they were only able to carry on the charade for 49 minutes. Fox kept trying to tease voters, with Hannity saying that they were “close” to calling a winner; they didn’t call it until after 9pm (central). With the ready availability of alternative media sources, it was too easy for people to find facts without the MSM filter.
My disappointment was discovering that Wisconsin does not provide official vote tabulations on election night; they rely on AP. Elected Secretary of State Doug LaFollette (yes, that LaFollette family) lost in the Democrat primary for the do-over to Barrett. The SOS website reads more like a prog recruiting station–government of, by, and for the bureaucracy. Instead of election night information, I wasn’t surprised to find this drivel as a headline in large red letters:
Because of the Governor’s budget passed by the Legislature the Office of the Secretary of State’s functions have been significantly changed.
This Office no longer handles notaries public or trademarks and trade names functions. Therefore, for this type of information, please do not contact this office. Thank you!
I didn’t watch MSNBC because I knew I’d be able to check out the highlights here and elsewhere in all its glory.
49 minutes of yapping about a long, long night and maybe into the morning of an election so close and important.
Then, just like the roadrunner – boom!, ouch! – the anvil falls on the head.
I just love those cartoons.
Rachel, I’ll tell you what happens next. Barbra Streisand sings The Way We Were in her role as Katie Morosky, a Marxist Jew.
