"It's going to take a scandal," McCain Tells Chuck Todd

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

NO!

 

In a discussion of the role of money - and the pipe dream of campaign financing reform -- in campaigns and politics, something spilled out of John McCain's old, white pie-hole that made sense. Worlds apparently collided when we were watching the intelligent and informed peoples.

"It's going to take a scandal," the senator fake-mourningly shook his head with a whisper of regret and a shrug of his shoulders to MSNBC's Chuck Todd … who is headed for Meet the Press. Humph.

 

John McCain

No sympathy for McBombBombs, he's got plenty of plenty. Plus he made that Palin thing happen to us.

 

This is where lumbering gridlock and champion partisanship run mutually amok, hit each other head-on and produce a brief period of bruising Reality.

Here Ya' Go GOP-Tea … Pay For Palin

Palin embarrassMINTS

Will there be a Putin Cam, Live from her porch?

The rumors were true. The Tundra Twit Sarah Palin has launched her own lame stream of media. 9.95$ a month.

Did she not have Op-rah level cable network dough? No high rolling investors? Facebook wouldn't let her stream video that poorly produced? Or would that have been selling out to the lame mainstream media that she wants to be so clearly separate from?

That's the Problem With Palin … all questions, no good answers.

For whatever coco-loco reasons, half-Governor Sarah Palin has birthed The Sarah Palin Channel, or SPC for mocking purposes. Oh, and it truly is special.

MSNBC had some reporting on the venture.

“Are you tired of the media filters? Well, I am! I always have been. So we’re going to do something about it,” Palin said in the video introduction. “Together, we’ll go beyond the sound bites and cut through the media’s politically correct filter.”

Palin announced the website late Sunday, describing the website as both an alternative to the mainstream media and a digital home for all things Palin. In her announcement, she derided the media for their bias.

Now you can subscribe for a year to save enough bucks to get a few big gulps for the kids, it's only 99$ for a whole year of Sarah interviewing public figures foolish enough to stream with her, a recriminating national debt counter, and for the edification (does she think Bill O'Reilly's words are too hard?) of all, a SPC Word of the Day.

Sunday's offering was 'rectitude'. SPC must do Formal Sundays.

John McCain had darned well better have sunk some cash into this thing, he ought to be paying as long and hard as we are for unleashing this thing on the Lower 48. Now she's on the Intertubez 24/7!! Damn You McCain.

Here's her exciting announce video. Apologies.

So apparently that home shopping network endeavor tanked? Saturday Night Live usually gets it right.

See … SNL predicted a long, long time ago that she had aspirations to be a white Op-rah. They do usually nail it. Hope you didn't mind the gratuitous commentary, LiberalViewer does some good stuff on the Youtubes, h/t to him and his silky sarcasm.

'Get Out and Push', Says Maddow of the Useless, U.S. Congress

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

World's End

Maddow finally did it! Put her head on the desk in despair and choked out a couple of frustrated, choked "Gaah!!!"s in the opening block of her Friday evening show … on the gobstoppingly absurd absenteeism of 25% of the American diplomatic forces.

Key positions are vacant because the actual Do Nothing Congress is Out of Order. They won't even appoint or confirm - it's the mind-blowing equivalent of laying off 1 out of every four American diplomats and foreign service personnel around the world.

For sheer spite. Obstructionism and putting some degrading 'asterisk' next to Obama's presidency is more important than our national security - to the GOP, neo-hawks.

The capper: Congress is currently less popular than Putin with the American people. As they are about to go on vacation themselves, it's going to be a race to do as little as possible.

We currently have no ambassadors to Russia, Guatemala and more than a few other hotspots in foreign affairs this summer.

Bernie Sanders was slightly optimistic about the hopes of VA Reform early this afternoon. Despite both houses having passed the actual bill - Bernie Sanders and John McCain were the bloody co-sponsors, they had it down. Congress looked ready to pass a bill, #wtfbbqlaw??

Partisan bickering and final budget wrangling have ground even the Veterans Administration reform efforts to an astonishing new level of Gonzo Gridlock.

Funny-Office-Signs-02-Microwave-Toaster

Bernie joined Rachel at quarter past the hour to offer his perspective. He was no longer just optimistic. He seemed to be working his way up to projecting the announcing of an imminent deal. "Yesterday was a very rough day … but we will look abysmal if we cannot produce legislation to help the Veterans. … We plan on working tomorrow and Sunday, and despite the huge ideological differences … we can come together." {paraphrasey} Have a look.

Earlier in the day a veteran called Sanders 'intractable' and a bit of a problem in the gridlock, which raised my hackles but nonetheless deserves a look. Sanders is indeed determined to include mental health and traumatic brain injury as high priorities, and perhaps he is holding out for ideals. But he is fighting hard for progress within this dysfunctional congress.

By contrast, the sub for Hannity had Paul The Younger on to bloviate about the Middle East, then let little Randy suggest an Iron Dome for the U.S.. Isolationist much?! Then he had a spin around the entire feeble Feck question on Ukraine, and did the obligatory 'lack of leadership' schtick.



"Staring down Putin" … he has been reading his Ayn.

Sorry for the early bird Fvx, but these side by side comparisons between the two cable networks, one delivering actual news with a stated liberal slant and a fan of facts, one that sells hysteria and propaganda like it's a new investment op; are critically important in the two views of this Dysfunctional Congress and the state of breaking bad they have sunk to.

fox-news_o_1179933

These compare and contrasts are so critical - the harsh disinfectant of light shining on the murk and hate at Fox Noise and diagnosing the brainwashing for what it is, a propaganda and cult network bent on guarding the wealth of the upper tier.

Oh, and that Rand Paul baldly boasted of calling the president to advise him was just that last bitter note that Fvx Nation is addicted to.

It's going to take the mother of all Twelve Step Programs to sort out those zombies and zombettes when they stumble away from the mother ship … a wrecked and listing Tea Party clipper.
