MSNBC is ten times more partisan than Fox. It's become painful to watch any part of MSNBC. Today, one host after the other acted like high school adolescents as they reported on Obama and Christie meeting to tour the hurricane damage in NJ. While Chrisitie was acting like a grownup doing his job, the MSNBC hacks practically giggled like gossips wondering if Obama and Christie were going to kiss and whether Christie would be wearing Obama's ring. It's really sad to watch these people unravel.

Chris Matthews has constantly implied that Romney is a racist. On a recent show, Matthews told one of his guests that we all know why Romney looked down on Obama during the first debate, implying that it's because Romney is a racist.
Rachel Maddow is obessed with Romney -- she doesn't talk about much else. Maddow is fixated on Romney and her smears are so shrill that I can't listen for long.
Ed Schultz is bombastic and never misses an opportunity to criticize Romney for his wealth and how Romney wants the middle class and poor to suffer. Yes, according to Ed, Romney is evil and loves it when middle class and poor people suffer. So, Romney is not only a racist, but he's a sadist.
Lawrence O'Donnel took seriously Tag Romney's joke about wanting to take a swing at Obama during the debate because Obama was accusing Tag's father of lying, and O'Donnell challenged Tag Romney to a fist fight on his MSNBC show.
We won't even mention Martin Bashir, Chris Hayes and Al Sharpton. MSNBC is falling apart. Their hosts are literally losing their minds as it appears more and more that Romney will trounce Obama in the election.
I'm familiar with Kain's writing. It's has always been marked by a subtle, intellectual dishonesty. This ariticle at Mother Jones is that, and it's also unintentionally humorous, mainly because half-way down there's a rotating MSNBC ad highlighting the likes of Ed Schultz and Chris Matthews, after Kain has written this:
Certainly politics brings out the worst in people, and it brings out the very worst in our political leaders. In a democracy, this is on constant, gaudy display, becoming only more pronounced in the Fox News era, in which "organic" grassroots movements like the Tea Party are fertilized by talk radio and cable television and the blogosphere.
It's funny that Kain mentions Romney, the Republican primary, the Tea Party and Fox News regarding negative campaigning while failing to mention Democrats, Obama (except to say that Obama sat out the negativity in the GOP primary), MSNBC and the worst purveyors of negativity on tv, Matthews, Schultz and the rest of the MSNBC gang.
It's this type of mealy-mouthed capitulation to politically correct group politics and partisan dishonesty that's destroying credibility among modern liberals. If you're going to discuss negative campaigning then include both parties, because it's the Democrats who are going negative with the most vigor right now, and to ignore their contribution is incredible. But this is Mother Jones, so I understand -- who would expect objectivity?
On Morning Joe today for the first hour and a half, the guests were Mark Halperin, Jonathan Capehart, Lawrence O'Donnell and Eugene Robinson. This show is run like a failing government program -- they just keep on doing the same things, no innovation, just the same old things, over and over. I still watch it because it's a microcosm of the political class in general and the Left in particular. Joe Scarborough is supposed to be MSNBC's fair and balanced effort, but Scarborough has spent way too much times with liberals and progressives. There are good reasons why Morning Joe is way behind Fox and Friends in the ratings, and one is that it's painful to watch these unproductive blowhards sit back and take potshots at those who are actually in the game attempting to do something productive. It would be much easier to take if the smears were intelligent, satirical assessments which enlightened the viewer, but they aren't intelligent, just petty and silly.
Each morning they've attacked Romney for the silliest of reasons, until it's reached the point of Come on, Man! This morning they were showing polls of Obama beating Romney and Santorum in swing states, The polls were the reverse of the polls about a week ago. Has the public changed that much in a week? No. The polls can't be trusted any more than the analyses from these partisan pundits. Although the Left loves to make fun of anyone who calls the MSM on their bias, the bias is getting worse -- it's to the point now that there's no longer any pretense of fairness. This election year will be looked back on as the year of the MSM's final demise. It's over. The spin and propaganda no longer work. The results of the 2012 election will be far different than what's forecasted, because the spin no longer works. There are a lot of liberals who are decent people who will be tarred by the shenanigans of this presidential race -- they should start protecting their reputations now before it's too late. Blind support for the Democratic Party and blind opposition to Republicans are not advisable this year. The Democrat Party is being propped up by a media which is falling apart. If you're going to hitch your wagon to a star, make sure it's not a falling star.
Morning Joe is a MSNBC Super Pac for Obama, as is Ed Schultz, Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow, Chris Hayes, Lawrence O'Donnell, Martin Bashir, Melissa Harris Perry and Al Sharpton. Did I leave anyone out? These media Super Pacs constantly campaign for Obama and against Republicans.
This morning the Mornig Joe Super Pac commercial for Obama was done by John Meacham, Mika, Barnicle, David Gregory, Tavis Smiley, Lawrence O'Donnell and a few other Leftists. Scarborough is still absent, and Mika still looks like she's pissed at the world. Mika gave Barnicle a hard time for being a slob. Barnicle dressed almost as badly as Scarborough dresses when he's on.
There was nothing much of interest on the show -- they simply talked about Biden's attack speeches, how Republicans are flat earthers, how Obama is attacking the whole Republican field, and how Paul Ryan's new video is depressing and misguided as far as solutions go. To boil it down -- Republicans still bad, Obama still great.
They talked for a minute with Richard Engel about Afghanistan -- there is still no broad protest in Afghanistan over the soldier killing innocent Afghans, but there is a lot of talk about getting out of Afghanistan. I hope this expands further than just getting out of Afghanistan -- I hope we begin talking about non-interventionism as foreign policy.
Go, Obama, go! Sock it 'em, sock it 'em! Go, Obama, go!
