Rachel Maddow - Bitchslap Artist Extraordinaire

Thanx for posting TJ, just by me watching this I think MSNBC ratings doubled :).

The rampant hypocrisy on both sides of the aisle has frustrated me greatly over the past little bit. Dems fought hard for minority rights when they were the minority, now seek many ways to freeze out the GOP minority. They used the filibuster to perfection now complain when the GOP uses it.

GWB has trouble getting relief to New Orleans because he is a racist, BHO has trouble getting relief to Haiti, because of those darn gangs of looters.

Two great truths about politicians, they are liars and hypocrites.

I don't see how pointing the finger at the other side makes this any less of a problem for you and I today.

Not this time, just counterbalance to Maddow. Any politician who opposed the stimulus then took credit for it's passage is a hypocritical weasel. Much like Bidden taking credit for the successful campaign in Iraq.

Yeah, it's hard to back Biden on that (although, I think I know what he was trying to say, he's just not as eloquent a speaker as others, ie: Obama, Clinton) but it's equally hard (or maybe even more so) to let one coherent point from that blowhard Cheney counterbalance the warehouse full of idiotic statements he's levied against the current administration.

He blasts Biden on taking undue credit without issuing a "Thank You Bush" with regards to Iraq, as if making a few appropriate "surges" toward the end of the Bush/Cheney administration should require a "Thank You" for even entering us in the Iraq clusterfuck to begin with.

That's like a burglar locking up on his way out and wanting appreciation.

Not to mention Cheney continues in that very same "Thank you" interview, he pretty much confesses that ousting Hussein was the main goal, not locating wmd's.

He criticized the administration's handling of the failed Christmas Day bomber, implying that he should have been waterboarded for information instead of merely interrogated for an hour, Mirandized and then later arraigned.

He also criticized why it took three days to address the media and public, which I find ironic because of the time allotted to Pres Bush to respond to 9/11 and the shoe bomber with no complaining from either party.

I could go on but I think you see the point.
