And yet in all their hand-wringing over Rachel, they offered only personal attacks in response (some untrue, some unfounded) and never defended their Birferism!  Talk about violently trying to change the topic.

And then really did have the nerve to use the "just asking questions" line of bullcrap.

Maddow:  "When Republicans talk to each other about how to spend their time, especially in states like Nevada where elections have been pretty close, where Republicans conceivably could have a shot at being competitive in a national race if they could figure out a way to broaden their appeal, when Republicans talk about these things, do they ever talk about how stuff like they're doing this weekend in Las Vegas might interfere with the whole broadening the party's appeal thing? Do you guys ever talk about Joseph Farah being at your events? Does that ever come up?"

Well, guys, why is Rachel's question any less valid than yours?

Also among my favorite derp:

Farah responded to Maddow's rant, saying: "If you want to get an idea of how the state-run press will look in Maddow's Stalinist dream world, you can get a pretty good idea just by watching her show. She smears people with fallacious accusations, offers no opportunity for another point of view, is afraid to invite her targets on to mix it up with her and relies on name-calling and personal attacks rather than anything remotely connected to facts.

Agree with her opinions or not, if you've ever actually seen her show you know that's not even remotely true.  She gives airtime to, and shows the utmost respect for, some people who I personally do not think deserve it.

"Birther" is a pretty stupid term.  "Idiot" would work.

And she repeatedly, publicly, and politely invites the subjects of her pieces on to discuss the issue, and thanks them afterwards for having the balls to show up.  But usually, she is refused.  Again and again.

FTA: Root also sounded off on Maddow's comments, telling WND: "Obama has destroyed the economy so badly, more people are on food assistance (101 million) than working in the private sector (97 million). Ninety million working-age, able-bodied Americans are not working.

Being on SNAP or WIC does not automatically mean unemployed.  There are a shiatload of working poor in this country.  Some of them are even in the military.

Oh, yes.  Noticed that too.

Highly relevant to the discussion.  And really, fair game since Rachel wears a "Freelance Muff Diver" sign at all times.

If you truly think Obama is ineligible to be president after all of the evidence offered so far, you are infinitely more retarded than my Down syndrome-capable niece and should probably do the world a favor of increasing the average IQ by removing yourself from the denominator.

Fact checkers are horribly biased against conservatives. You can tell by the number of times facts prove conservatives wrong.

You're using facts and reason to argue with people that didn't use facts or reason to believe what they believe.    They lie outright, gleefully spread disinformation, and are motivated by nothing but fear and ignorance.  How the fark do you get through to these morons?  Shame?  Harsh language?

It has been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt for quite some time now that Obama "isn't eligible to be President". This is good news though, because we have a President who is not bound to the heteronormaltive white patriarchy. Finally, someone who has and will continue to give us real change  by continuing the illegal surveillance programs started by the Bush administration, among other things.

So he didn't publish any Birther books nor write the foreword for Where's The Birth Certificate? ? That biat.... Oh wait, she's telling the truth. Maybe he doesn't understand the word "fallacious"? Could be that he also thinks he's clean shaven. Maybe it's Bizzaro World for him?

Gotta love the Survey at the bottom:

WHAT WOULD IT TAKE FOR YOU TO WATCH MSNBC?
A total overhaul in which they fire every host and producer and sell the network to someone who cares about truthful reporting(46%, 839 Votes)

They would have to add a couple good conservative hosts in prime time(less than 1%, 14 Votes)

I'll watch if they get serious and report from a true progressive perspective(less than 1%, 9 Votes)


These are just some options from the FoxNews Nation...

I love how people feel that "the other side" requires equal (or hell, any) airplay.

It's as if whenever someone comes along to decry child molestation and how horrible it is, that you should grant the president of NAMBLA some time to come and defend the practice.
