Are Republicans Just This Stupid?! Apparently So.
Billie Tucker down in Florida makes an excellent point worth reiterating. The GOP is set, yet again, to have a debate on MSNBC.Seriously.Dare I refresh your memories on the last one? For two hours we were stuck with Brian Williams and John Harris of the Politico asking questions no one cared about in picking the Republican nominee. It was a dreadful debate that was capped off with Al Sharpton, Rachel Maddow, Lawrence O’Donnell, Ed Schultz, and the rest of the crew at MSNBC commenting on the debate.Why does the GOP do this to itself? Seriously? These people are not your friends. The people who watch that network are not the great unwashed willing to be persuaded. MSNBC is actively opposed to the GOP.At the end of the last debate millions of Republicans suddenly cried out in terror and suddenly switched the channel upon seeing the MSNBC panel show up.Those who stuck around saw a network biting the hands of the candidates who had just given that channel more traffic in one night than it probably had ever gotten.The GOP should stop being stupid and just tell MSNBC no way. Why waste the candidates’ time or ours — particularly since every bit of demographic data on that network shows the typical MSNBC watcher would rather vote for Charles Manson than any of the Republicans.
