I like how MSNBC is now going the Fox News route by hiring attractive women to sell their brand. Because, you know, the hardcore MSNBC viewer doesn't drop the feminism card at the drop of a hat.  I applaud the choice of brunettes. It says "We are doing the same thing as the enemy. but our ladies aren't held down by a stereotype."

I enjoyed watching Krystal Ball go full herbal teabagger on the left-wing moderates.

It's as if they crazies on the left saw all the attention the crazies on the right have gotten over the last couple of years and decided they could have it, too.  And all it takes is the complete evisceration of their political party.

You know what else is purplish?

Sour grapes.

MSNBC has a relatively diverse lineup compared to other cable news outlets.  Too bad one of them is too attractive for Studman69s to take seriously.

I might have to rethink my whole aversion to television news if that happens.

To be fair to MSNBC, when Chuck Todd is the most respected journalist in your lineup you can only go up from there.
 
2014-03-14 09:24:34 AM  
Actually, if the GOP becomes more socially moderate I think they'd win back the younger voters...they're just too stupid to realize it.
 
2014-03-14 09:32:44 AM  
I would care about that, if the GOP didn't create policies based on Grover Nordquist's teenage poetry.

Krystall Ball? Really? What parent names their kid Krystall Ball? I guess the same kind that names their kids Dick Trickle or Ima Pigg.

Nope. She was just learning to walk when I was a student.

I'm related to a Candy Bahr. She kept her name when she got married, she's always been in sales of one kind or another, and people never forgot her name.

Well, at least she ensured herself the young, liberal vote.  Which is probably why she lost in a landslide, but I digress..  We were saluting the slutty congressional candidate..

I haven't seen a whole lot of her commentary, but I have seen some, and what I saw of it was well-thought-out.  What's the difference if she has an odd name or is pretty?

It's basically, "The moderates are ruining the Democratic Party!  We need to send *real* liberals to congress to fight uncompromisingly for what we believe in!"

The nose was on her husband.  What's slutty about that?

That was some serious ranting. But hot women ranting I can live with.
 
2014-03-14 10:34:32 AM  
She didn't "rant" or "brutally eviscerate" anything. She made the same reasonable argument I've seen here and in other places for - oh, I don't know - like five years now.

For me, the difference is someone in the C-suite believes the odd name and the pretty are good reasons I should be listening to her.

Wait, what....?

(checks Wikipedia)

In October 2010, Ball received national attention when photos taken six years earlier emerged showing her at a holiday party dressed as a "naughty Santa" sucking a red dildo attached to her then-husband's nose.

Oh man...

"The second reason the GOP is irrelevant is because your economic ideology is toast, debunked, discredited. Your intellectual heavy is Paul Ryan. Paul Ryan! You've been flailing around in a house that Reagan built for three decades and still haven't realized it's just an empty frame with no foundation. Come back to me when you have some actual evidence for your economic ideology, and no, Ayn Rand novels don't count."

She's right on this part,anyway.

Her insistence that the age gap between the Democrats and GOP will remain constant is historically inaccurate.

As people get out of school and go into the real world they start to form their own opinions start shedding the liberal leanings of today's educational institution.

I came out of school democrat, move to the GOP, back to Democrat (thought I would give them a second try), now I am Independant for life.

I'm socially liberal (support gay marriage, support anti-discrimination, support civil and workers rights) and fiscally conservative (we need to actually be able to pay for this shiat instead of kicking the bill down the street to the next generation) and anti-banker/wall street.... if we could afford it, I would be all in for single payer healthcare, but history has shown that politicians would just raid the fund like they did with social security.

Not a single party out there makes sense to me anymore.

To normal people, sodomy is slutty and immoral no matter who it is employed on. That's why conservatives fight so hard to outlaw it.

Maybe the fact that she was also letting her friend felate her husband's nose penis?  Or is that considered "normal" sexual behavior amongst the liberal crowd?

We could afford it if we stopped spending 8X what the next nation spends on the military. We don't need 500billion dollar planes that don't work, naval ships the Pentagon doesn't want and tanks rotting in an Arizona desert. Just saying.

And then you have me, a child of the Reagan Revolution who has become more liberal as he's gotten older because he is now able to put Reagan's philosophies into their proper intellectual and historical contexts.

Not just that, we are giving billions away to other countries every year that eventually stab us in the back anyhow.

Personally, I would like to see the 'federal' military decentralized back to the states... we should make it extremely hard for politicians to get us into any war except for self defense of our own lands... for such a 'peace' loving country, over the last 225 years we have been to war more than any other country on earth.
