My friend and utter badass Cliff Schecter ran circles around ousted (and quite racist) tea party leader Mark Williams on a show called Crosstalk yesterday. The real fireworks begin around 9:40 and Cliff gets off a great run about Iran and tea party financiers the Koch brothers at 21:40.
I’m not sure how or why Williams continues to be invited on television. The corporate media just loves villains. Chris Matthews used to have Tom DeLay on all the time. Erick Erickson is a regular CNN contributor. Pat Buchanan has somehow managed to have a permanent role on MSNBC.
And yet this is the first time I’ve seen Cliff on TV in months.
