  •  rachel maddow has talked about this a lot (4+ / 0-)

    just a couple of years ago, a pol caught doing or saying something outrageous was forced to apologize and then slink away, career over

    now, nothing disqualifies these scumbags on the right, because the media has begun to look at their "faux pas" not as disqualifying exposes of their dirty little minds, but as "entertainment" that needs to be encouraged and milked for all it's worth

    i say it's because of sarah palin...her history is so corrupt and the shit that comes out of her mouth so egregious that 5 years ago, she would never have gotten out of wasilla, but she has become catnip/cocaine/heroin/great sex to the american media, who cannot get enough of her...this palin syndrome has now been extended to any "colorful" rightwinger who can provide "entertainment" for the increasingly desensitized masses

    what the fuck does "man up" mean?

      Getting Democrats together and keeping them that way is like herding cats that are high on meth, through L.A., during an earthquake, in the rain -6.25, -6.10
