Open thread: Sunday morning talking heads

posted at 8:01 am on October 20, 2013 by Allahpundit

Because he’s the main lightning rod for tea-party upset after the failure of “defund,” I thought Mitch McConnell would want to lie low for awhile in the aftermath. Nope: He’s the star guest on “Face the Nation” this a.m., where he’ll field questions like “Did you really know this was doomed back in July?” and “How do you feel about Sarah Palin wanting to send you into retirement?” Look for him to reassure tea partiers that he loves them lots and lots in between pronouncing the last three weeks a disaster that won’t soon be repeated.

Intriguingly, Ted Cruz and Sunday-morning mainstay John McCain will both be on CNN’s “State of the Union” — almost certainly not in the same segment, but a man can hope. Oh, and Marco Rubio will be on “Fox News Sunday” to remind people that he still believes in the American dream. The full line-up is at Politico.

I know what you’re thinking: “I wonder if the network news cabal is going to air all viewpoints and give a fair reading today on the issues of the day?”

Don’t be silly. See under each show, the total number of conservatives among the 4 to 6 involved in the discussion:

“Meet the Press” on NBC
• House Monkey Liberal
• Kook Left Lib
• Lame Duck conservative who likes to hang out with Libs
• Irrelevant Isreali

Conservatives: 0 (or 1, if you are more gracious than I)

“Face the Nation” on CBS
• Senate RINO leader
• Lib who pretends not to be a Lib
• Senate RINO Lieutenant

Conservatives: 0

“This Week” on ABC
• Red Queen
• Conservative Rock Star
• RINO Poseur

1 out of 4!

“Fox News Sunday” on Fox
• Conservative with amnesty fetish
• Communist
• RINO
• Conservative

All Republican views aired!

“State of the Union” on CNN
• Con
• Liberal Republican

Republican views “moderated” by Liberal activist — what could possibly go wrong?!

“Political Capital” on Bloomberg TV
• House Monkey Liberal
• Lame Duck Liberal

3 for 3 Liberals

“Newsmakers” on C-SPAN
• Kook Left

Kook Left only

“Al Punto” on Univision
• Closet Communist Muslim doing his race politics schtick
• Senate House Monkey Liberal

Kook left only

There it is … same old, same old.

As you read the piece, it’s not “thousands”, it’s hundreds of thousands, maybe millions who are losing their health insurance this month.

Nope, I must have been only half awake to suggest that the woman in charge come on a Sunday show and talk about the clusterfark.

Will Face the Nation ask McConnell about the $3 billion Kentucky Kickback? Doubtful. They’ll save those knives for another day. Today, their laments and tsk-tsk’ing are reserved for Cruz and the Tea Party.

Panel of Fools: REPUBLICANS!

Panel of Fools: TED CRUZ!

Journolister: And who won?

Jeb Bush: I think Republicans need to be mindful that the country is changing which is why they need to nominate a Rubio/Bush ticket for 2016. I of course would be that Bush.

I can’t be as angry at McConnell as the rest of you. Historically he has been pretty conservative and I’ll bet he doesn’t end up bashing the Tea Party. I woke up to a Huckabee lecture on calling fellow Republicans name and giving up on the “The Party”, I might have missed it but I don’t think he took John McCain, LindseyBell, King, etc. etc. to task.

Everyday I am becoming more convinced that the 2016 GOP nomination will come down to two men:

Ted Cruz vs. Chris Christie

That is the GOP civil war in a nutshell right there. Plus for all the people (mostly party elite) who want the GOP nominee to have an easy ride, I would refer you to Obama vs. Hillary in 2008. For all the people who think this won’t happen I will just say this..all the base will mostly rally around Cruz and all the Big Business / Neo-Cons / elites will rally around Christie. They both have the ego, the ability to speak, and personify the two competing factions well. Obviously I hope Cruz kicks fat boy’s ass.

Also the Democrat nomination will be a boring as heck in comparison…so that will be a good thing for the GOP.

That’s another thing, the Left keeps defining deviance down and somehow our folks are the only ones who suffer from it. Except Weiner, of course, but that’s only because we had Brietbart back then. I was watching Red Eye last night and Shultz (kidding, I assume) started saying that the Obamacare website was only having problems in states with Republican governors. I can actually see that catching on and becoming the narrative.

In what regard are they on the same page/mission? Based on observation, I’d say that it’s quite clear they are not.

‘Conservatives’ and ‘Republicans’ are simply not the same thing – don’t have the same goals at all. ‘Republicans’ seem to simply be happy being the minority party in DC, so long as they get the perks, a bit of power, etc. They simply seem quite content letting the Dems call the shots and do whatever they want to do, 90% of the time.

Went in, got the brisket, and went piling out the back door with it balanced on a smoking rack. Scared the living daylights out of about a dozen deer that had wandered into the back yard. They went flying in all directions. It was quite a sight.

Although I get really bored with the “Republican Civil War” news themes, I wonder if the media is actually aware that Republicans would love to have immigration reform and national healthcare? The only difference is that in the end their versions would benefit their donors instead of the Left’s donors. The media doesn’t even care that the Left’s donors got the money from the taxpayer, they just know that the are louder and have the victim patter down to a science.

Yeah, they don’t hunt them here on the ranch so there are quite a few of them around. They don’t have enough fear of humans, either under some circumstances. I think they would walk right up to you if you didn’t look directly at them. They seem to think they are invisible. Then if you do look at them they get all flustered and nervous. Of course, if there is food that they want involved, they will walk right up to you which is not a good thing. Even the does will kick the hell out of you if they get scared and you are too close.

I do see a lot of them hit out on the roads. I even put some of those deer whistles on the car. They’re probably useless, but they make me feel better.

The crazy part (if you followed my arithmetic) is that every single show in “the lineup” is run (moderated isn’t the right word) by a Democrat. Fox News, as they do in almost every case, puts up someone in good faith — Chris Wallace is, in my opinion, the fairest journalist on Sunday morning, anywhere. But make no mistake — he is no conservative Republican.

Every other show is run by someone who normal, thinking people would regard as an activist, liberal Democrat. (I don’t count C-Section, and apparently no one else does, either.) I often come back to this inescapable fact when idiot liberals attempt to claim that network political bias is not an issue; response — “really, then why does every network run their only political show with a liberal? Every one…

Mcconnell delivered us the sequester in the 2011 deal, which is the only leverage the GOP has left.

McConnell is a brilliant parlimentary tactician.

McConnell held together 40 GOP senators against Obamacare in a fractured caucus, despite every goody and threat dangled in front of every GOP senator to give the legislation the patina of “bipartisan.” Every GOP senator faced immense from K Street, Reid, Obama, and the MSM; McConnell held them together.

I’d like to see any of the complainers here do half as well.

Anyone who wants McConnell defeated is suffering from Obama Derangement Syndrome.

The irony is that, at the beginning of the year, the Left was snickering, that by refusing to set up state-run exchanges, Republican governors were opting for the more liberal version of exchanges run by the feds.

Now, of course, they’re blaming the Republican governors for the feds’ failures.

Perino thinks very highly of herself. She ‘s a Bush baby and a real dumb one to boot.

As Valerie Jarrett told David Remnick in “The Bridge,” Obama’s “uncanny” abilities need to be properly engaged, or he disengages. “He’s been bored to death his whole life,” she said. “He’s just too talented to do what ordinary people do.”

MD, this idiot can’t even wipe his own butt.

I simply do not believe that Obama is that smart. He can’t even speak well extemporaneously and for me that is a huge tell.

Greta interviewed with Bibi and Cruz on the same evening the other week. Both spoke rapidly, succinctly, coherently, and clearly on their respective issues and concerns. Their intelligence was quite evident as they expressed their thoughts. There’s no need to wonder what’s on their transcripts.

Anti-Tea Party :

Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Peter King

Pro-Tea Party :

Ted Cruz, Sarah Palin, Mike Lee, Marco Rubio, Samuel Adams, John Hancock, Patrick Henry, Paul Revere

I know which side I’d rather be on.

December 16 is the 240th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party.

John McCain – taking the title of the Senate’s biggest media whore from Chuckie Schumer….and once again demonstrating that Senator Nightingale really needs to follow the Arlen Specter path.

ROCK STAR!! – 8-minute Standing-O For Ted Cruz On Return Home

When even the state run media start using the words “rock star” when describing a conservative, you are seeing something unique.

I think we are watching the beginning of a movement.

The crazy part (if you followed my arithmetic) is that every single show in “the lineup” is run (moderated isn’t the right word) by a Democrat. Jaibones on October 20, 2013 at 12:17 PM

They post an R or D after the name of their politician guests, but why don’t they post the affiliation of the interviewer?

Like Piers Morgan D, or Joe Scarborough RINO, or Ed Schultz CPUSA.
