Video: Chuck Todd spins entire campaign narrative out of McCain’s and Palin’s body language

posted at 7:26 pm on October 22, 2008 by Allahpundit

Golly, I can’t imagine why Team Maverick was reluctant to grant NBC a sitdown with Palin.

No, I kid. I can imagine it just fine. Exit question: If, as Todd hints near the end, McCain’s and Palin’s inner circles are ready to start pointing fingers at each other, wouldn’t we have already seen a bombshell quote or two from the massive NYT magazine cover story that dropped today?

I don’t understand what he means by tension… something like sexual tension between McCain and Palin? To me, his meaning isn’t clear at all.

Sometimes I watch MSNBC and get frustrated at crap like this. Then I remember that no one but Obama supporters and a few people like me watch the channel.

McCain, Schmidt, Salter, and Davis all deserve collective responsibility… they(and other top people) should all just take it collectively rather than keep the finger pointing going…

Wow – Brian Williams delivers comedy like Barack. That first line to Chrissy was painful.

What’s also painful is the complete desperation they are showing now. They. Are. Frightened. They may wish to be in denila, but they can’t stop the feeling.

This is getting very ugly on their side.

Much more realistic, if only Chuck were honest.

Palin is by far more ready to take charge of this country. Obama is any empty suit and the media has filled it with straw just like the scare crow on the Wizard of Oz.

Chris, she’s DRAWING HUGE crowds! Thanks for asking.

She’s doing interviews, unlike Barack and Biden.

She’s calling out Biden, who is not getting called out by MSM for his buffoonery.

originalpechanga on October 22, 2008 at 7:38 PM

Todd is such an annoying plagiarist and imitator of sense. He’s probably 99.9% of why I never watch NBC, especially because he’s made the network “news” outfit all about himself (his ongoing lectures to the suffering Liberals who view NBC are just pitiful).

It’s interesting in a “embarrassing to Todd”-way to see him now COPYING O’Reilly’s “body segment” segments, as an issue of interest.

From that article:

One indication is that turnout in this year’s early Democratic primaries was way up. Nearly twice as many Democrats turned out for the 2004 Iowa caucuses as they had for those held in 2000. The turnout in New Hampshire for the Democratic primary was also extraordinarily high, up 29 percent from the previous turnout record set in 1992–the year Bush’s father lost his reelection bid.

Wait, it gets better:

But look carefully, and you’ll find a couple of nuances in the most recent poll data that point to the potential for a big Kerry win. First, in polls that implicitly assume a higher turnout, Kerry performs better than he does in other polls. Most of the polls you hear about–and the ones that prognosticators trust the most–are surveys of “likely voters.” Among the criteria pollsters typically use to identify likely voters is whether the subjects participated in the last election. These polls have proven more accurate in recent elections, like 2000, when voter turnout was relatively low–of the last nine presidential elections, only two showed lower turnout than 2000. But there are strong reasons to think that voters will turn out in larger numbers this year–especially among Democrats.

Sound familiar?

Yes we would have. But there are no such bombshells. What we have here is a case of desperation on the part of Team Obama.

This was supposed to be a cakewalk – a complete rout for Barry and the Democrats (ugh…sounds like an awful Do Wop band from the 50s)- and it isn’t. Not even close. They will be lucky to hold their own seats in the House and Senate. There will be no veto-proof majority. With passing day it’s becoming clear to them that they are on a sinking ship.

Look for more bluster, more bragging and more ludicrously exaggerated claims in the next 12 days. Look for the attacks to intensify and for “racist” caterwauling to reach a fever pitch. Also, look for a surprise…it’s already coming down the pike.

Most men were allowed to have cigarettes while in Hospital, especially when under stress.

You do realize that they started stopping smoking in Hospitals, and other areas like that in the early to mid 80′s. I still remember my Dad at a Military Hospital being able to smoke in his room after a nasty back surgury in 82.

I have to say, the goatee probably knows a lot about “no chemistry” and negative vibes”. I’d imagine he hears that a lot from the ladies.

sheesh on October 22, 2008 at 8:19 PM

The way Mr. Todd stared into space in front of Brian the whole time said “passion” to me. He’s obviously deeply in love with the man but afraid to express it.

The way he scratched his head shows an obvious disdain for Asians and puppies. He’s probably contemplating genocide.

The way Matthews had his arms crossed said to me that he feels that his breast are too small… or too large… or that he just loves to hug ‘em.

The whole thing just reeks of Asian-hating homosexual love triangle. I predict a ritual killing some time in the next couple of weeks.

Seafood dishes. Salmon, crab, etc.

Poultry dishes, wild game, etc.

Some good veggie side dishes. Any recipes for stuff from the tundra such as lichens, mushrooms, etc?

I was also thinking that we need to work out a substitution menu for the more exotic dishes such as moose, caribou, etc.
although we do need to include the recipes for the real outre stuff like walrus and whale, just fr kicks.

Also, start working on some decent “hearty breakfast” items – no calorie counter or heart-friendly stuff. Screw that. Alaskans are tough and love cholesterol.

ManlyRash on October 22, 2008 at 8:24 PM

The first thing that occurred to me when I heard Todd’s pathetic psychoanalysis was this: he missed whatever chemistry there is between them because he can’t stand either of them; his own prejudice warps his view of each and both of them. I bet that would never occur to him, though.

ELCore on October 22, 2008 at 8:24 PM

“There was a tenseness… There’s no chemistry.”

Just from a grammatical point of view, shouldn’t he have said “tension”? Wouldn’t that have sounded better?

I think the vocabulary of TV talking heads, when let out to talk on their own, is abysmal. they sound like…say…Sen. Biden.

And yes I remember smoking in hospitals. When my oldest daughter was born, one of the first things I gave her mother (my first wife) was a pack of Marlboro 100s. She’d quit smoking as soon as she learned she was preggers, but that didn’t stop the mad cravings!

I also brought her *gasp* champagne, which she was allowed to drink THE DAY AFTER giving birth!

Oh, good Lord, what kind of “chemistry” do these two people really need to have? Andrew Jackson’s first VP was John Calhoun, a man he threatened to kill. Yet we put Jackson’s face on our money. When FDR died in April of 1945, his VP Harry Truman was sworn in as President, only to discover just how much in the dark he was about little things like, oh, the “Manhattan Project,” maybe. Then there was John Kennedy, who wasn’t exactly drinking buddies with Lyndon Johnson.

All this talk about chemistry is a bunch of crap. The two camps for these running mates need to save the pissing contest for after the election. There will be plenty of time for West Wing intrigue and fighting over parking spaces inside the WH gate once we win this thing.

The Year of the Mainstream Media Coup d’Etat.

(Or their absolute best shot, if they fail.)

The Press’ massive derelection of duty is damned close to letting a naive crypto-Marxist cum sociopathic b.s. artiste slip into power.

They’d better wake from their absinthe dream of Mr. Reparations Incarnate, The Annointed Barry, shake their soggy heads, look at this skating clown with a canny eye, and then spit out the truth of this Empty Suit, quick.

Before he and Farakhan end up playing footsie in the Rose Garden.

The Media is complicit in this election fraud.

Doing the same thing to the entire political realm that the bad mortagage delusion did to the economic sector:

-denying simple facts (terrorist Ayers, Barry’s unpleasant facility for telling instant lies; his “typical white woman” crack and its lack of honor; his mentors Rev. Black Crank and Father White Crank; ad nauseam) about Obama’s character ~which would naturally disqualify any normal person from this race~ is nothing less than a treason of the modern intellectuals.

It is dangerous to practice absolution in Journalism.

You end up with what the banks, brokerages, markets… and more and more businesses downstream… are all enduring~ thanks to the Democrats’ last fling at managing the economy: fiscal chaos and near-collapse.

All I can say to the Media is:

Pravda, you magnificent bastard!

That was the most embarrassing interview I’ve ever watched. Not McCain/Palin, but Brian Williams/Chuck Todd. All kinds of stupid psychoanalyzing.

McCain/Palin don’t have chemistry? Are they supposed to be a couple? Typically, the president and vice-president barely know each other.

And they’re guarded? Why would Sarah Palin be guarded around the press? Anybody? Anybody? Bueller? It’s not like it’s a hostile environment, right?

I think the interview is more about wishful thinking by the reporters than anything else. They have effectively done an excellent commercial for NOT watching NBC news

theregoestheneighborhood on October 22, 2008 at 10:07 PM

BS? I hope so.

I assume NBC is just wildly speculating. Mac should call them on it. But just in case…

DO NOT BLAME GOV. PALIN.

If Mac wants to second guess his choice, look in the mirror. Frankly I think Sarah Palin is a great choice and Mac’s campaign mishandled her.

Would Mitt Romney have been a better choice. Yep. But that is because the economy nose dived and Mitt knows more about the econony than all the candidates combined. Mac took a gamble and let’s face facts, McCain never liked Mitt much.

So grow up, keep fighting, and no belly aching.

The old and dysfunctional media really are pathetic the way they try to read loser into the interview. Every day I am stunned more than the next.

Of course Brian Williams did go out of his way to sit down with the world’s littlest terrorist without preconditions and give him a national stage. Like we were going to learn anything from his interview of that nutcase. Maybe that should have been Sarah’s reply to Brian asking her how she defines preconditions. “Well, Brian, you’ve experienced sitting down and sucking up without preconditions. Why don’t you tell us and then we’ll all know.”
