That’s Reince Priebus’s punchline to the exchange that started here:
Details here: basically, Chuck Todd opened (well, at 1:30) with a bid of a (female, if it matters) TX GOP executive director saying that men made for better negotiators. Reince raised by pointing out that Joe Biden once claimed that the goal of the GOP was to re-enslave black people, Chuck tried to suggest that that Reince has to answer for stuff said by people in positions of authority, Reince ripostes with Vice President of the United States, Chuck changes the subject.
PS: To paraphrase the immortal Ron Swanson, wait. I worry that what you just heard was, Reince Priebus is just letting Chuck Todd define the debate and throw that woman under the bus! …No. Reince is not actually there to answer for any particular Republican or conservative or convenient hate object for the Left, the media to the contrary. No, Reince is there to provide the rest of us with tools; and in this particular case, the tool is How to shut up Chuck Todd about that comment*. Which he did, handily; and that means that we won’t be hearing too much about this story, because it’s going to be real easy to point out that if we’re going to score people on the stuff that they say it’s hard to ‘beat’ a sitting Vice President claiming that the GOP wants to bring back slavery. The goal here is to talk about the things that you want to talk about, and not let the other guy talk about the things that he wants to talk about**.
Again. Victory: Reince Priebus.
*I should note, by the way, that Chuck Todd is hardly the worst media guy out there. I have actually seen him hit my political opponents, and in a way that has warmed the cockles of my heart.
**Now if you want to argue the original point, fine: but arguing that point doesn’t move the Senate needle our way, and it’s Reince’s job to move the Senate needle our way. No, really, that’s his job.
