Okay, every night I come home and turn on the news flipping between MSNBC, CNN and Fox...trying to get a sense of the punditry and track the news trends.
See - this is the commentary people will take as fact. This is the stuff that the middle of America will hear and believe. That's what happens. That's how decisions are made...
I'm sure I'm not the first to write about this, but Chris Matthews and MSNBC is loaded with total douche-bags....I have NEVER (not even on Fox) seen such biased programming and skewed commentary. I know that Matthews runs conservative - but, unlike Fox which is bashing both candidates -- Matthews is making Clinton bashing his favorite pastime.
Thank god for CNN/Lou Dobbs and even (on some level) -- Fox News. Fox, unapologetically right of center at least is presenting the Democratic debacle in a way where they're making fun of everyone - bashing everyone.
The dumb-ass, dipshit, douche-bag that is Chris Matthews and his permanently upside down smile is making me want to vomit - I watch it just to see if he can continue to spin every story as a negative against Hillary Clinton.
There was a time when newscasters and networks reported and discussed the news as impartial observers - but, seriously - Chris Matthews doesn't even TRY to be unbiased. Its no surprise he's anti-Clinton-and has always been, but seriously, he delivers SUCH a biased perspective of ANYthing that's happening in the news. Its really, seriously off-putting. But its also like watching Rush Limbaugh - I can't take my eyes off of it - because it amazes me just how much spin and couched commentary he applies when "moderating" a discussion. From cutting people off, to blaming party nastiness solely on Clinton.
He's just a dick.
Last night, he said that the media (including his show) makes it seem like she has more of a chance at securing the nomination than she does...Um...does he watch his own show? He never wastes a second saying how she has no chance. Selectively ignoring the nuances that make this election a cluster-fuck.
He's truly worse than anyone on Fox.
On a plus side, he seemed a little more amenable and forgiving when talking about the "joint-ticket" Hillary's team has been suggesting. It was bizarre.
As an aside - I do think that's the only thing that's going to save the party. An Obama-Clinton or Clinton-Obama ticket. Obama closed the door on the latter idea like a petulant child consistent with ever-growing ego. If he closes the door on the reverse, he'll be committing political suicide. I mean at least keep the possibility open.
With 28 percent of Hillary supporters deciding to throw their support behind McCain if Obama gets the nomination - its the only hope he has in winning....that is, IF he ends up bullshitting his way into a nomination.
After McCain's speech on foreign policy and expected speeches to reach out to Hill's 28 percent Obama-haters...I have to ask myself if I'm one of those 28 percent. I actually think I might be....
For all his baggage, McCain can't be worse than GWB.
