Unless your grampy is a racist turd.
Evidently MSNBC’s animatronic wingnut, and the network’s favorite cuddly grampy character, thought the right-wing terrorist who went on a shooting spree in Norway “might have a point” about Muslims.
Yeah. Not a shocker. The only shocker here is that he continues to collect a check from that place.
I’ve been deliberately avoiding MSNBC recently, partly due to an animation deadline, but also because I’m utterly exhausted with it.
I hasten to note that Lawrence has been fantastic lately and, as always, Rachel is a genius, but everything outside of those two hours is skull-crushingly intolerable.
Be it Pat Buchanan’s inexplicable latitude to blurt out all varieties of awful things, or various anchors being unable to read basic prompter copy, or a good friend of mine being replaced, or the insufferable “both sides” meme that dominates the topicality in the morning (and all day long for that matter), or Chuck Todd’s douchey self-righteous seriousness, or the somnambulist Martin Bashir continuing to nap his way through his show, or Dylan Ratigan and Ed Schultz leaning on the fake outrage red alert button with the sincerity of used car salesmen, or, hell, the continued airing of prison rape docs even though the nation is on the verge of economic collapse, MSNBC is a nightmarish melange of stress-inducing hackery.
One thing is certain, it definitely isn’t the liberal network. It’s the shit sandwich station.
