Today, David Gregory had Ted Cruz on to tell him about the rabbits.
Of course, David already knows all about the rabbits, but it's just not the same unless Ted tells about them.
David also knows that he'll only get to tend the rabbits if he is very good and does as Ted tells him to do.
Sure there was the usual kabuki about the effectively of Teddy WreckSpin's marketing strategy -- as if the point of running his face hole for 21 hours had a damn thing to do with "persuading" anyone of anything:
...You've made all these arguments. My goodness, you went and spoke for 21 hours to make these arguments. You haven't moved anyone.
But, as always, Mr. Gregory allowed his guest's long, ludicrous farrago of lies to sail, sail, sail right on by unimpeded. Because, as Chuck Todd at long last made helpfully clear to the handful of rubes out there who still thought NBC News is in the fact business, it is not the policy of NBC News to tell it's audience then they are being lied to.
Of course because we no longer live in a sane society, the Right saw this same exchange a little differently -- as a vicious, unprovoked partisan attack by an Ultra-leftist Commie Goon and Obama sock-puppet on the last, noble American left in politics.
And since Mr. Gregory will now be impotently pilloried for the next couple of days by both the Sane Left and the Irretrievably Batshit Right, he can go back to bragging to his bosses about what an irreplaceable Pillar of Electrifying Centrist Teevee Entertainment
he obviously must be.
All of which is why we no longer have a functional democracy.
But Gregory and Cruz?
They're gonna live off the fat of the land!
Oh yes they are.
