Lost Thought 00: Why on God's green Earth would he go on Maddow? What did he think was going to happen?


It doesn't matter. There aren't 10 people in his entire district that have watched MSNBC in the past 10 years, beyond flipping past it channel surfing. He could have went on her show, stripped naked, masturbated to ejaculation, and rubbed the semen in his hair while singing Deutschland Uber Alles, and he'd still get 65% of the vote from the Big 1.

Maddow did nothing to him, she just let him talk. He did it to himself.

With that being said,you know his base viewed this very differently from how normal people did. They were all probably clapping and cheering him on, claiming that he suck it to the Liberals.

She challenged him slightly, and that seemed to cause his brain to short-circuit. He wouldn't have had the same break down on Fox or CBS. But yes, this will not harm his electoral prospects one bit. His party's larger goals, perhaps, but not his personal ones

She didn't challenge him in the slightest, she just asked him to explain the shiat that was falling out of his mouth.


That's a challenge, obviously

There's an anti-Obama, Super-American minivan that drives around here that's plastered with god knows how many right wing bumper stickers plastered all over it.

Nonetheless, watching Huelskamp's inconsistent messaging was like watching that minivan lose control on the expressway, barrel-roll into the median and, finally, explode --littering the highway with broken, little, super-patriot bon mots.

Being citical a few times and spending 99% of your time just going attacking the "other" side pretty much makes you a cheerleader. Just like the clowns at fox.
I can't blame her too much because it is basically a mob mentality. When you are surrounded by people who wear their badge of bias like an honor you can't help but be sucked into it. And that is the most disappointing part, because she is very VERY smart but unfortunately she goes for the low hanging fruit and overwhelmingly only points out the "others" faults.
But I guess if that is your cup of tea than or your "team" than I guess you are offended that this.

Maddow is clearly a liberal. Everyone knows that. But she is not partisan. She does not blindly support Democrats by any stretch of the imagination. If you watched her show with any regularity, you would know that she very frequently is critical of the Obama administration. In addition, criticizing conservatives is not necessarily a display of partisanship and certainly is not cheerleading for Obama. Sorry if reality isn't as binary as simple minded thinkers need it to be.

He followed that with "Obama hates the military because he ran on a platform of brgining them home from the wars in which they were dying.".

Then he ended with "Well, Obama is subverting the will of the people when he bypasses Congress." Yeah, they 'Congress' that has something like 6% approval or something right now? If they were actually representing the 'will of the people', they'd have approval in the 90's...
