MTP had two round table discussions that added nothing to what we know and should have been eliminated. If Meet the Press is going to regain relevance it has to change its format. Perhaps a return to the original format of having one guest for an hour and a panel of real reporters actually asking questions. Sort of like a show where news figures “Meet the Press.” What a concept.
Why watching Meet The Press is a waste of your time.
Remember this the next time you hear a gun control opponent utter some kind of jargon rationalizing that every man, woman and child be armed with a gun. Call them on the bullshit.
Please ask Mr. Clemente what the words of my supposed apology were. I’d be interested to know,” he said. “Frankly, I don’t remember any such apology

This kind of crap has been festering for longer than the past couple weeks. I had the misfortune of reconnecting with a guy I went to high school with on Facebook. His mind has been completely dominated by Fox Noise and A.M. talk radio. I can see him in his job in carpentry: the sun baking his head, reducing his critical thinking capacity to the same level as a snail.
Try as I might to talk to him about the politics in a civil manner, he usually responded with logical fallacies, most commonly using ad hominems. I’ve noticed that this is the most common tactic that right-wing ideologues fall back on: they lack the capacity or integrity to argue a point, they fall back to using ridicule of some sort. They also have this kind of immature / narcissistic denial of responsibility for others.
These right wing ideologues have this kind of solipsistic view of the world which denies the existence of people who they agree with like this scumbag in the picture or people who are alien to them like those who depend on public assistance. They toss around abstractions like Welfare Queen and Nanny State when they talk about the poor without knowing anything about the people or how hard it is to get from that state of existence to the kind of self-sufficience that one hears from Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, Fox News, A.M. talk radio, ad nauseam. Try and talk to them about the bigots at their shoulders like the turd in the picture and you’ll watch their heads explode.
I’ve tried reasoning with them — sane people cannot. I’ve come to the opinion that one needs to fight back with fire to over come them.

Lady, can you just answer one question asked of you about Scott Walker?


So Joe Biden, Joe Biden is off the reservation. A little Elizabeth Warren lingo there. Joe Biden he’s just going nuts. Two days in a row now he’s gone nuts. I told Cookie I want the Biden sound bites from yesterday because you know what I saw? I saw that — we’ve played these Biden sound bites where he was going nuts yesterday about “People don’t get us. What do you mean we are against [unintelligible]? What do you mean we don’t want people to get wealthy? what do you mean?”

When you see it, when you see Biden’s face, when you see his eyes, when you see his mouth, the facial expressions, it — well I wouldn’t call it demonic — deranged. I mean, it’s just, it’s astounding, so I said Cookie give me the bites again, I want to play these bites again. I want to paint an accurate video picture of what “bite-me” looks like.

This is What A Cop Out by A Lazy Ideologue Looks Like

It’s a common device by right-wing ideologues when challenged to show their work to demean the challenge and duck it’s propriety.
