Mrs. Alan Greenspan Explains Why
We can't have nice things.
In this advertisement for MSNBC (that last bastion of Commie trickery and America-hating cut-and-runniness left in Jesusland) Mrs. Alan Greenspan takes great pains to denounce unnamed "political parties" and "interest groups" who are ruining everyone else' good time.
OK, then, which "political parties", Mrs. Alan Greenspan? The Whigs? The Copperheads? The Natural Law Party? The LaRouchies?
Of course, these questions are purely rhetorical because no grubby groundling is ever permitted within asking distance of Mrs. Alan Greenspan to challenge her Centrist bullshit, but the fact that this is passed editorial muster at MSNBC and now appears in official MSNBC advertising (as did Mrs. Alan Greenspan's previous advertising spots she has both inferred that she personally was the first female reporter in American history, and that she was also the first reporter on Earth of any gender to be hassled by a dictator for asking a mouthy question) is depressing.
Perhaps after hosting so many thousands of Washington D.C. cocktail parties and after so many years making the Galt-with-two-backs with an 800-year-old Ayn Rand fan boy (who was also one of the chief Conservative architects of the near-destruction of the global economy), it is no longer physiologically possible for Andrea Mitchell's mouth to form itself to say anything other than "Both Sides Do It".
But now the calls are coming from inside the house.
And MSNBC management should fucking well know better.
