OMFG - just when you thought it couldn't get any more ridiculous.

A pathetic campaign followed by insanely pathetic excuses.  I'd say conservatives like this should be embarrassed, but that would be unfair.  Embarrassment and shame require self-awareness, and they're clearly incapable of it.

Oh, and also:  Not voter suppression.  No matter how you want to torture the meaning.

They can't write articles about how they're offended about everything if they don't try to find things to be offended by.

That's a twist. Usually MSNBC engages in viewer suppression.

Voter suppression is now "24 hour news networks saying things I don't like". It's definitely not instituting poll taxes, eliminating early voting, restricting hours at the polls, or any of that. Right?

I blame Rachel Maddow.
 
2013-01-30 11:51:07 AM  
Propaganda =/= voter suppression.
Creating laws with the distinct purpose of alienating voters = voter suppression.

Nothing is more vile than right wing bloggers.

I thought conservatives stayed home because Dean Chambers showed that the Romney victory was a foregone conclusion...

Here's the actual book in question. Comedy gold.

The biggest story of the election was how the media ignored the biggest story of the election.

Amid all the breathless coverage of a non-existent War on Women, there was little or no coverage of Obama's war on the economy-how, for instance, part-time work is replacing full-time work; how low-wage jobs are replacing high-wage ones; how for Americans between the ages of 25 and 54 there are fewer jobs today than there were when the recession officially ended in 2009, and fewer, in fact, than at any time since mid-1997.

The downsizing of the American economy wasn't the only story the media missed-or suppressed-there was also the unraveling of Obama's foreign policy and the deadly scandals at home (Fast & Furious) and abroad (the terrorist attack that killed the American ambassador at Benghazi).

But instead of serious, substantive journalism, the media reported ad nauseam on trifles (Big Bird), Republican-baiting hysteria (how everything the Republicans said was allegedly "racial code"), and distortions of Romney's remarks (such as the 47% comment).

The media dropped the ball in covering the 2012 election, writes David Freddoso, editorial page editor of The Washington Examiner, and in doing so the media failed in their responsibility to keep politicians honest and the public well-informed. Freddoso, a New York Times bestselling author and former congressional reporter for National Review, fills this volume not only with outrageous examples of media bias, but also with dozens of real stories that genuinely inquisitive reporters should have relished but that the overwhelmingly liberal press didn't even bother to cover.

Full of the news you didn't hear about in 2012, David Freddoso's Spin: How the Media Ignored the Real News and Helped Reelect Barack Obama will be the most provocative and accurate take of just how Barack Obama managed to get reelected amidst the worst economic times since at least the 1970s, and how the media helped him do it.

An elderly woman calls the police to complain about her neighbor, who is walking around his house naked. The policeman comes over and looks out the window. "I'm sorry, ma'am," he says. "I don't see anything." She answers, "Stand on the bed! Stand on the bed!"

FTA: For the near future, conservatives just have to accept that they're going to be held to a higher standard, and use that fact as a motivation to make better arguments and be smarter about their strategies.

The biggest threat to the GOP this past election cycle were the debates. It seemed like every week for way too long they came out and tried to outdo each other with shooting themselves and each other in the foot. Time after time they ratcheted things up so hard to the right they served as their worst enemies. And then they found nothing but contempt for their remaining voters by stating that after the Convention they would be starting anew like the past had never happened.

MSNBC could never have hoped to be as effective as the GOP were. Every day for an entire election cycle they got up, put on their pants and proceeded to screw up.

...and of course Reince is back at the helm again so 2016 is looking to be just as entertaining.

"For example, Chris Matthews asserting that conservatives were giving Romney a long leash (ideologically speaking) because they are racists, I mean, come on - what kind of political commentary is that? That was essentially a voter suppression campaign, to tar conservatism and shame conservatives out of participating in politics."

It's that easy to keep right-wingers from voting? Chris Matthews made them feel bad, and that was enough?

Man, the GOP is farking DOOMED.

"Republicans have recently tried nominating idiots for office - I mean both establishment idiots and conservative idiots - and it hasn't worked out very well," he continued. "It's one thing to lose a race because you chose a conservative, but you never want to lose because you chose an obvious dim bulb to represent your party."

So he recognizes this, but feels MSNBC is what cost them the election?
 
2013-01-30 12:01:30 PM  
To which I say "Pussies." Public scorn is not a conspiracy, it's a reaction to things that are said in public that are objectively completely stupid. If it makes you feel bad that people point out that you are being stupid, then there is an easy remedy, don't be stupid.

More cry-baby commentary from Sandy V. Gina, I see.

At least this Weekly Shopper look alike tabloid is printed on newsprint, unlike the Washington Guardian which only exists as electrons and phosphors, the Examiner get high marks for its effort to create more pollution.

The (big city name here) Examiner appears during election cycles with all the news Fox couldn't stretch. I'm surprised the authors use their real names or a consistent fake name.

Don't forget the sudden rape fetishism. That shiat cost them millions of votes and several seats.

max_pooper: I thought conservatives stayed home because Dean Chambers showed that the Romney victory was a foregone conclusion...


I still wonder why at least in the last week, the Right wasn't using a narrative of "Obama's barely ahead, you need to get your ass to the polls to keep him out"

Grow the fark up you sniveling children.

I see the GOP as being more responsible for turning me off with the candidates they have brought to the election in the past two rounds. The last primary crew was a flat-out joke with Santorum as the punchline.
 
2013-01-30 12:07:32 PM  
So in 2004 when Fox news told me I was a terrorist supporter for not voting for the GOP, what was that?

They were pretty confident the silent majority were huge rape fans.

Yeah Mitt Romney had absolutely nothing to do with that.

Also- the recession ended in 2009? Wow. That's a reason to vote for Obama.

I like how verbatim quotes are distortions.
