Mr. Hair was on Scarebarrell this mourning, spouting his expertise about the presidential campaign. His take?
Romney had a really good week. Despite people trying to distract him (including the president) he kept on message, and that message is resounding and will bring him victory. The distractions? Immigration (not an issue anyone cares about), Health Care (Obama deserves to lose by passing it), Fast and Furious (Congress is just doing its job).
Mr. Hair was so obviously bent in favor of Romney, it immediately reminded my why I never watch this foppish dandy.
While Gregory did not exactly spell out those other issues with such commentary, his disdain for Obama and his failure to realize just how badly Romney actually did this week, clearly showed him to be a partisan no less in favor of Mittster than Fox News.
I suspect that we will continue to see Sunday talk shows favoring the GOP, just like they have for the past 10 years.
Hmm, there was another president against whom the entire GOP was united and obstructive. Except when he twisted them into pretzels by agreeing with their positions. They even tried to impeach him. If I recall, the US public was so fed up with GoPee tactics that the re-elected him to a second term. Now what was his name . . . ?
Tonight's the night, Meine Damen und mein Herrs. Das Supreme Court will issue its ruling on Health Care tonight. Regardless of what the decision is, there will be a flurry of commentary, again drowning out that stick figure mittens and his "on message" message. Take that, Gregory, you floating turd.
Tonight's also the night that some assistant coach gets convicted of serial child rape. I suspect that might be in the news. Which also means that the Catholic sex abuse cases will bubble up into the public consciousness once again, partly because there are so many cases pending, a few new allegations, and large settlements, but because the Church has never really paid a price for its systemic crimes.
Tonight's also the night when Team Obama will pull off another surprise. Subtle, quiet, effective, and unsuspected. It seems as though when they want to have a long term impact, say, like on immigration issues, they do it in a low key way, then let the decision or position grow on its own. (see generally, recent questioning of Romney on immigration)
