“I Like Talking About People Who Don’t Have Any Power”

That would be my favorite recent quote.

Joe Biden: “Buck Up”

Joe Biden told us to “buck up” tonight on Lawrence O’Donnell’s new MSNBC show, the “Last Word.” (I’ll post a link ASAP.)

(O’Donnell smiled and nodded and seemed to agree with Biden.  God.  The guy — O’Donnell — is SO in the loop — and I don’t mean that in a good way.)

Kind of reminds me of the billionaire vice-chairman of Berkshire-Hathaway telling us to “suck it in and cope”  last week.

Obama Dismisses His Base Base

When the patient, wise and politically savvy Peter Daou writes a post titled: Liberal Bloggers Are Bringing Down the Obama Presidency, you know it’s time for Obama to stop whining and to listen.

This is serious stuff.

Barack.  Joe.  Pull your head out of it.

MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell Thinks Fox News is So Nice

Lawrence O’Donnell’s new show debuted on MSNBC tonight.  Why MSNBC hired him, I don’t know.  The guy seems to be an accidental “political commentator” who slid along in life, getting a lot of breaks, for who knows why.

I have no idea what they see in him.

One of the first things he did on his debut day was to praise Fox News’ Greta VanSusteren:

(The top tweet reads:  “Beautiful bottle of wine arrived from the Queen of 10pm.  Thanks @Gretawire.  Since I don’t drink, the staff will be opening at 11pm.”)

Hey, Larry.  Has it occurred to you that the “Queen of 10pm” might have ulterior motives in sending you that bottle of wine?

Bad start corporate media guy.

They should have hired Cenk UygurRatings soared when he subbed for Dylan Ratigan.

Newsmax v. MoveOn.Org

Whether a comparison between Newsmax and MoveOn is fair or not, I think it’s interesting to note — “enthusiasm gap-wise” — that I’ve received five emails from Newsmax today — today alone — while I haven’t received a single email from MoveOn since September 22.

The Obama Administration’s Election Strategy: Yell at the Base

Do they really — REALLY? — think that yelling at, and trying to humiliate the base is the way to go?

At a fundraiser in Manchester, NH, today, Vice President Biden urged Democrats to “remind our base constituency to stop whining and get out there and look at the alternatives. This President has done an incredible job. He’s kept his promises.”

No.  He.  Hasn’t.  Joe. Oh, and there’s this and this too (and that’s in just the last ten days).

These guys are so out of touch it’s scary.  They need therapy.

I mean, Republicans actually do stuff their base wants them to do.  Democrats?  They do what Republicans let them do and then they expect their base to think they’re awesome.
