Comedy gold: Salon editor can’t name any extreme voices on the left

posted at 7:43 pm on April 20, 2010 by Allahpundit

High comedy from this a.m.’s “Morning Joe.” The funny part, actually, isn’t that Walsh blanks on any lefty names. I can almost understand that given that they’re talking about Rush and Beck initially and there’s simply no liberal pundit with as long of a media reach as those two. To find the “extremists” on the left, you need to move down several weight classes.

No, the funny part is that Scarborough and Brzezinski do have someone in mind and it’s painfully clear to everyone on set — except Walsh — who that person is. If you follow the MSNBC soap opera, it’s also painfully clear why Joe and Mika can’t name him, but between the hand gestures, facial expressions, and Scarborough cracking up with laughter at their dilemma, I dare say you’ll be able to figure it out. (In case you’re struggling, here’s a tiny hint!) Exit question: Couldn’t they at least have named Frank Rich? Click the image to watch.

Oh their producer at the gauges is like putting his hands on his head. Classic. Joe deserves to have to deal with this. What exactly is extremist that Rush has said lately? All his done is counter with “facts” the nonsense about Tea Party Protests being about racism and violence. How is that extremist? If what Rush is saying is extremist than everyone of the TownHall columnist, Dennis Prager, Hugh Hewitt, Michael Medved, even Hot Air would be considered extremists. Why does Joe give them that? Because you have to be an non-extremist like him who WILLINGLY has his freedom of expression controlled by none other than the extremist Lefty? And what’s with those two goons over there saying that Joe & Mika were being mean. Stupid is as stupid does. Stupid IS what needs to be “called out”. If not you may be painted with the broad brush that the guests you keep must mean you’re of like minds.

What an incedibly stupid woman. Far too stupid even to be in denial. Dumber than a box of sinkers.

Sean Penn, Kieth olberman, Rosie Odonnel, Joy bayhar, john Stewart, that idiot rachel Maddow, whoopie goldberg, chris matthews. etc etc etc etc etc etc.

What a stupid woman.

Play the race card to keep blacks in the goat pen. Keep Detroit blacks chained to poverty, and demonize any black with a rational opinion. Without goating blacks into believing everyone other than a democrat is a racist, they hope to lock in their votes.

Lets see what the blacks do this go round. Will they wize up, or continue be used. That is the question.

For shame you lying stinking liberals. If you get your way, the public is helpless and the elite egg heads can use the people like slaves.

Stupid liberals. They have no clue the consequences of what they strive for. For God’s sake, don’t empower the people. How then could you control every aspect of their miserable lives? Power baby power for the elite liars and thieves.

Mika’s Daddy, Zbig, and Naomi Wolf.

They’re not necessary Loudest, but they’re certainly Extreme, imho. The arrogance with which Zbig talks about the damage that he’s done to our country is immeasurable, and Wolf rails against beautiful American Women in TV interviews at the speed of sound as though she’s been on week long coke binge. She’s in the verbal diamond lane with the Rest of America’s self-hating femmes.

That was priceless!

Joan Walsh is the poster-girl for whiny, weak feminism. It was wonderful to see Mica be the one who actually called her out on her memory loss closed-minded-liberal-bias.

MississippiMom on April 21, 2010 at 2:14 PM

You know if you surf over to morning joe in the morning that’s Mika’s usual expression….just sayin :)

Loved it when they went to the editorial as directed by the producer and went into a lefty screed by Eugene Robinson and Walsh still didn’t get it.

jpmn on April 21, 2010 at 4:34 PM

Joan Walsh called Republicans traitors for criticizing Obama, saying, ironically, “It‘s traitorous, in my opinion. Do you want to give aid and comfort to our enemies? Continue to treat this president like he wasn‘t elected and he doesn‘t know what he‘s doing!

So, no, I doubt she could think of any “extremists” on the left.
