It’s one where you get interrupted when you try to spin the stupid things that your candidates say.
For those without video, it shows: George Stephanopoulos (!) playing a clip of Joe Biden’s infamous ‘buried’ gaffe*; asking Robert Gibbs whether gaffes like this will hurt the Vice President in his upcoming debate with Paul Ryan**; and stopping Gibbs cold when Gibbs tried to claim that Biden was talking about the last eight years*** when Biden clearly said four. Pure entertainment, in other words: oh, I’m sure that there were plenty of softballs and whatnot. It’s Stephanopoulos, after all. But perhaps the Media is figuring out that smacking the Democrats around a bit promises to be good for the ratings…
*ProTip: Never talk about how the last four years have been awful for a particular demographic when you’re one of the people who’s been in charge for the last four years.
**I am not trying to be cute, here: but we – and more importantly, Paul Ryan – need to be prepared to deal with the fact that Joe Biden can and will lie with a straight face in public. It kept him from being President; but apparently the Media doesn’t mind a habitual liar in the VP slot.
***Which is interesting, all on its own. Apparently the habits of 2008 are still strong in 2012; and while I agree that it would be more fun for Obama to run against Bush he’s, well, not.

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES The New York Times had an astounding article yesterday about the lengths to which the Obama administration went to bully everyone to accept the dubious legality of their massive insurer bailouts; bailouts for which there was absolutely no Congressional appropriation. A Federal judge has already ruled that these payments were illegal, and the administration has appealed – principally on the | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES My favorite joke about government and its inanity goes something like this: A guy is running late for a meeting. He’s in his car – stuck on a single lane blacktop behind a county government truck. He can’t pass – it’s a double yellow line. Every fifty yards the county truck stops and two guys jump out of the | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Hillary Clinton’s standard go to excuse for using private email (she won’t address the use of a private server in her house) is that she’s doing nothing different than any other Secretary of State did. “They used private email, too!” Except that is not true. She is not telling the truth at all about Condoleeza Rice and with respect | Read More »
Sen. Marco Rubio, during an “extended” interview on the May 29, 2016-edition of CNN’s “State of the Union,” talked reflectively about the presidential campaign and his future. Rubio said Donald Trump shouldn’t change his campaign style, and that he won’t be running as Trump’s VP, for reelection to the U.S. Senate nor for Governor of Florida.
