The day after the Republican debate on CNN, it began. The pundit madness. Get ready for a year and a half of cable news people talking about Republican presidential candidates like Oscar nominees in lieu of getting into all of the reasons why they’re so wrong about almost everything.
For example, instead of helping America by exposing Michele Bachmann as the dangerous crazy person she is, the Hardball crew spent way too much time [I think that's the correct link, but MSNBC's website is almost impossible to navigate] pumping her up on stylistic political points. She was articulate and energetic, she didn’t fumble, she performed well, etc, etc.
Thanks guys. Let’s make a very serious pitch for a crazy person who routinely botches history and holds some of the most radical positions in Congress during a slow recovery from a previously disastrous Republican administration — based solely on style points.
