How Dare Anyone Suggest I'm Leaving MSNBC, Fumes Ed Schultz

Ed Schultz's lofty opinion that he's indispensable at MSNBC is apparently not widely shared at 30 Rockefeller Center.

Schultz responded angrily on his radio show yesterday to a New York Times story about the network that contained an eye-opening disclosure close to the end of the piece (audio clips after page break).

MSNBC Didn't Matter - Until He Came Along, Suggests Ed Schultz

This is a man whose ego has become so inflated, he needs crowbars to get his head through doorways.

On his radio show yesterday, Ed Schultz paused from his repeated spiking of the football in response to the election to make an unintentionally revealing remark about MSNBC, where he hosts a primetime cable show on weeknights (audio) --

Wealthy Conservatives Are 'Evil People' Taking Over America, Warns Easily Spooked Bill Press

Ever notice how liberals never seem to have a problem with genuine evil and instead use the word to describe those who don't share their rarefied opinions?

Libtalker Bill Press provided an example of this on his radio show yesterday, venting about the Koch brothers, Karl Rove, Sheldon Adelson and Foster Friess for their alleged nefarious plans to seize control of the country through its politics (video after page break) --

With Fearful Election Looming, Bill Press Claims Romney Would End Federal Disaster Relief

Liberal radio host Bill Press counts himself among bedwetting left wingers who are claiming Mitt Romney wants to eliminate the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

All this claim demonstrates is that those making it sense disaster on the horizon -- specifically, Election Day -- and that they can't distinguish between moderate-since-birth Romney and unapologetic libertarian Ron Paul who actually would abolish FEMA. (audio clip after page break)

Maddow on Mourdock Another Example of Her Rhetorical Vandalism

Ever wonder why so few Republicans appear on "The Rachel Maddow Show"? Its namesake would have you believe they are deterred by her hypercaffeinated cerebral intensity. Instead, it's because they find Maddow's frequent lies, reliance on half truths, glaring omissions and paraphrasing of what they say beyond recognition inherently repellent.

On her MSNBC program Friday night, Maddow waded into the controversy that resulted after GOP Senate candidate Richard Mourdock's remarks about abortion during pregnancies resulting from rape. (video after page break)

It's Official: Rachel Maddow Completes Conversion to Baghdad Bob

"The Rachel Maddow Show" really shouldn't air weeknights on MSNBC. It is much better suited for Saturday mornings, you know, along with the other cartoons.

Maddow is so deep in the tank for the Obama administration at this point that she no longer cares how ludicrous she appears in her melodramatic inveighing against the staggering mendacity of one Willard Mitt Romney, a man who clearly haunts her fitful dreams and restless nights.

Letterman Slams Obama for Auto Bailout Lie - Followed by Maddow Parroting Same Lie

For a hot New York minute the other night, it looked like there might be hope for David Letterman.

Ed Schultz Suckered by Bogus Story That Tagg Romney Owns Voting Machines in Ohio

My condolences, Ed. I know how much you wanted to believe this was true -- how much you needed to believe it's true.

Not only that, you claimed on your radio show that it was accurate, and more than once, only to learn -- from a political ally! -- that it wasn't. Such are the seldom-felt joys of slogging through left-wing media. (audio clips after page break)

Full Moon Already ...? Thom Hartmann Suggests Benghazi Attack Part of Right-Wing Plot

Looks like we have a new leader on the left for proponent of this year's most delusional conspiracy theory.

Romney Sweating 'Like a Whore in Church,' Opines Stephanie Miller

Based on her experience as a frequent churchgoer. Obviously.

When Gotcha Goes Horribly Wrong: Pataki Swats Back at MSNBC's O'Donnell

How about that, it was actually mentioned on MSNBC last night that President Obama responded to the deadly attack on the US consulate in Benghazi ... by winging to a fundraising "jaunt" in Vegas the following day.

Of course, the awkward fact that Obama did this wasn't cited by one of his innumerable apologists at America's cable version of Pravda. Instead, it came from a Republican acting as surrogate for Mitt Romney after the third and final presidential debate. (video after page break)

Just When You Thought Ed Schultz Couldn't Get More Deranged ...

... the bellowing voice of liberal belligerence outdoes himself again.

Managers at radio stations that carry Ed Schultz's radio show were surely rethinking the rationale for that after his rage-filled and bizarre remarks on Friday, clear evidence of desperation on the left at the specter of Mitt Romney defeating President Obama (audio clips after page break).

Cursed Fiends! Bill Press Condemns Media for Citing Gallup Poll With Romney Up by 7

Liberal radio host Bill Press wants it both ways.

He's "blown away and upset" that Gallup's daily tracking poll yesterday showed Mitt Romney ahead of President Obama by seven points. Press also wants everyone to know that the poll is meaningless. (audio clip after page break)

Overwrought Much? Thom Hartmann Compares GOP to Mafia, Third Reich

Raddatz is So Dreamy, She Oughta Be President ... Maddow Reveals New Crush

Smoking-gun evidence that ABC's Martha Raddatz was a biased moderator in the vice presidential debate -- Rachel Maddow is gushing about her.

Ed Schultz Takes Credit as 'Coach' for Biden's Debate Clown Act

The vice presidential debate isn't the only place you've seen that bizarre mix of jocular bellicosity displayed by Joe Biden. It's on MSNBC every weeknight in the form of  "The Ed Show."

Not surprisingly, its host Ed Schultz is taking credit for Biden conducting himself in a manner all the more unsettling when one considers that Biden is a heartbeat from the nuclear launch codes. (audio clips after page break)

Americans Are 'Most Warlike People' in World, Bill Press Sneers

And they wonder why we sometimes question whether they love America.

On his liberal radio show yesterday, Bill Press was disparaging Christians as hypocrites when he expanded his criticism to Americans as a whole (audio) --

Four Security Guards Shield Maddow From Book-Wielding Fans

Perhaps it's just me, but this came across as a tad excessive.

On her MSNBC show last night, Rachel Maddow told of speaking on Sunday at the Arlington Theatre in Santa Barbara about her book "Drift: The Unmooring of American Military Power," before an audience she estimated at 2,000 people. (video after page break)

What it Looks Like When Maddow Plays it Straight

Behold -- Rachel Maddow, sans snark, smarm, irony or spin. Enjoy while this lasts, you might never see it again.

For fleeting moments on her MSNBC show last night, Maddow described the presidential race in a way that liberals and conservatives watching together might nod in agreement and refrain from sneering at one another. (video after page break)

Lies, Damned Lies and Jonathan Alter on Romney Tax Plan

Isn't it amusing when liberals allege deceit by Republicans while engaging in it themselves?

Yet another example of this shabby dynamic was on display during last night's Rachel Maddow show on MSNBC when its host and one of her guests, Bloomberg gnome Jonathan Alter, tried their best to buff a gloss on President Obama's mail-it-in debate performance. (video after page break)

Maddow Asks Plouffe If Debate Strategy Was For Obama to Be a Wimp

Give the woman credit, this would explain it.

After last night's debate in Denver, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow asked Obama adviser David Plouffe to be "candid" in explaining the president's lackluster performance (video after page break)

What Romney Did to Obama, Giuliani Does to MSNBC's Chris Hayes

You might think of this one as a sequel to the Debacle in Denver.

MSNBC weekend host Chris Hayes was not his chirpy self last night after running into a buzzsaw known as former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani in an exchange reminiscent of that between a befuddled President Obama and a nimble Mitt Romney (video after page break) --

Mitch McConnell Resigned to Romney Defeat, GOP Loss of House, Maddow Dishonestly Claims

Ed Schultz and The Nation's John Nichols Duped by Politico's 'Stench' Satire

Libtalker Ed Schultz and The Nation magazine's John Nichols could soon be receiving a flood of offers to buy swampland in Florida. Perhaps by then they will each be a bit more skeptical.

Both were among numerous liberals who yesterday took hold of a bogus story by the hook and swam for all it was worth. (audio clips after page break)

Golly! Citizens United Ruling No Big Deal After All, Admits Daily Kos Creator

Notice how quiet liberals have gotten about the Supreme Court's Citizens United ruling?

Seems like only minutes ago they were gnashing teeth and rending garments that it was the end of democracy as we know it. (video clip after page break)

Does Ed Schultz Believe New Deal Emerged From US Experience in WWII?

Sure sounds like it, but you be the judge.

Here's Schultz on his radio show Wednesday, doing his part in the liberal media pile-on after Mitt Romney dared suggest considerable overlap between President Obama's supporters and those Americans most dependent on government (audio) --

Maddow Unintentionally Exposes Obama Admin for Fatally Lax Security in Benghazi

Keep up the good work, Rachel, even when it's not at all what you intended.
