$500k of Stimulus Went Straight to MSNBC

August 22, 2012

According to the Labor Department, nearly $500,000 of your tax money went to MSNBC for green-job promoting advertisements on both Olbermann and Maddow’s shows back in 2009 as part of the Stimulus.  These ads played 14 times a week for two months.  The Labor Department defends the expense, citing that the department delegated these kinds [...]

Reince Priebus Knows How to Play the Talking Head Game

April 12, 2012

Effective talking heads are almost essential to successful political campaigns.  Like catchy tunes in a commercial (this being one of my favorite), a party’s message that is repeated often enough sinks into the minds of the voters.  Unfortunately, the left has dominated the talking head game ever since Haley Barbour stepped down as Chairman of [...]

Tea Party: Delusional Addicts They are Not

August 4, 2011

The left gets funny when they get desperate, so we all knew this was coming:  MSNBC had a psychologist on to say that Tea Partiers are exhibiting delusional behavior similar to those of people with addiction.  Off-base and ridiculous, this interview was a simple sore-loser move. This episode reminded me somewhat when the left went [...]

“The Five” Premieres on Fox

July 11, 2011

We now have an answer to who or what is going to replace Glenn Beck on Fox News at the 5pm slot:  “The Five“. Essentially, there are five panelists who each lead a discussion on at least five topics the press is talking about that day. Today, the panelists were Eric Bolling who was my [...]

Keith Olbermann — For Senate???!!

January 24, 2011

Daily Kos contributors, unhappy with Olbermann’s unceremonious exit from MSNBC are now mounting a campaign to draft Kieth Olbermann (Nutjob-CT) for Senate.  Now, a part of me wants to go into Operation Chaos mode and wholeheartedly support Olbermann for Senate.  It will provide much comedic gold throughout the 2012 campaign season, and makes it possible [...]

Keith Olbermann and the Final Countdown

January 21, 2011

I didn’t actually see the announcement, but let’s be honest, no one else did either.  Nevertheless, it happened.  Keith Olbermann is leaving MSNBC.  No more Countdown. It’s tough to say why Olbermann is leaving.  Countdown was the struggling network’s highest rated program.  If the issue is ratings, then every other program should have been shelved [...]

Jay Rockefeller’s Statist “Bug”

November 18, 2010

In a way, political polarization can be a good thing because it gets rid of the blurriness between the sides:  are you for more speech or less?  more government or less?  more personal freedoms or less? etc.  Here is liberal West Virginia Senator Jay Rockefeller on the issue of speech on cable news: Get rid [...]

The Election of 2000, Ten Years Later

November 7, 2010

Shortly after 8:50pm on the evening of November 7, 2000, I became very nervous.  MSNBC decided to call the state of Florida for Democrat presidential nominee Vice President Al Gore, though they admitted it was very close.  Texas Governor and Republican nominee George W. Bush needed Florida’s 25 Electoral votes along with either Ohio or [...]

What Liberals Really Think of the Military

December 2, 2009

It’s always been said that liberals have disdain for the military, and last night, Chris Matthews illustrated it beautifully.  In reviewing Obama’s speech, in which he spoke of President Obama going into “enemy territory” in giving his speech at West Point, and referred to the cadets as rabble that used to be roused by the [...]

Marco Rubio and the Difference Between the Parties

October 27, 2009

I’ve written several times about the situation in Florida, where the NRSC-backed Charlie Crist (RINO-FL) is going up against former Florida Speaker of the House Marco Rubio (R-FL).  Rubio was on MSDNC this morning on Morning Joe, and spoke about the the need for a clear difference between the parties, where the GOP has gone [...]

Obama as “God”

June 14, 2009

Last week Newsweek‘s Evan Thomas went on “Hardball” and told the thrilled Chris Matthews that unlike Reagan who spoke for America, Obama transcends nation and people as a god-like figure: Well, if you take religion and religious ethics out of our institutions, out of mainstream “hip” society, and attempt to force religion into accepting secular values by viewing [...]

General Electric is the parent company of NBC, and by extension owns NBC News, MSNBC, and CNBC.  At yesterday’s shareholders meeting in Orlando, FL, shareholders criticized GE CEO Jeff Immelt for MSNBC’s extreme left-wing tilt.  With the likes of Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews, and Ed Shultz, MSNBC has turned into the TV version [...]

Chris Matthews Is Out

January 7, 2009

No, not that; he’s out of the 2010 Pennsylvania Senate race.  After a year of speculation that Mr. Tingles would challenge Senator Arlen Specter in 2010, the Whiffleball host decided to forgo a Senate run in order to remain with MSNBC. Matthews’ decision is probably for the best.  A Senate run would have forced Matthews [...]

According to Druge, Coulter has been banned from NBC “for life”.  A recently-scheduled appearance on NBC’s Today Show to promote her new book, Guilty.  According to Drudge’s sources at NBC, the theme of the book, which exposes the Media’s unprecedented bias in the 2008 Presidential Election, was the reason for the cancellation. The ironic thing [...]

Matthews Exploring Senate Run

November 28, 2008

Obama-worshiper and MSNBC pundit Chris Matthews appears to be planning a run for the Senate, according to Five-Thirty-Eight. He appears poised to run in his home state of Pennsylvania in the 2010 election against RINO Arlen Specter.  I know, I was surprised too to see Matthew’s running as a Democrat.  He was always so fair [...]

The Democrat Race… as of Right Now

June 3, 2008

Barack Obama is on the verge of officially claiming victory over She Who Must Not Be Named.  This morning MSNBC was reporting that insiders believed SWMNBN was going to effectively drop out tonight.  Then, denials from the campaign.  No shock from NBC, the media wing of Obama’s campaign, for running with the rumors. Later today, talk of a [...]

New Debate Format Needed

February 26, 2008

Barack Obama and She Who Must Not Be Named are debating right now, and I’m surprised to say that I almost have a little sympathy for them. This does not stem from any affection for these two, God knows they haven’t done anything to earn my respect. The problem is the awful moderating job being [...]
