Tonight on Hardball, national braintrust Chris Matthews' 'Politics Fix' featured Joan Walsh of Salon.com, and Ken Vogel of the Politico. Topic of discussion was Barney Frank's recent surreal townhall meeting on healthcare, where he berated damn near everyone who dared question him. What does Joan Walsh think? Barney is a hero to the liberal movement!
Well, bravo Joan.
Walsh continues and calls this behavior "thuggishness," and questions why "we are treating these people like they deserve an equal place at the table." Excuse me? 'Deserve a seat at the table'? What about the 1st Amendment don't you understand, Joan?
Then she says they're falsely trying to portray themselves as regular folks, but they are really being organized by "right-wingers" like William Kostrick who, she says, is a birther and is a member of "We the People." (*GASP!*) We the People? For SHAME, William!
Katy Abram is next up for Joan's lunatic bat, saying she's being portrayed as some kind of ordinary housewife, but she's really a "leader" of the "9/12 Movement, which is Glenn Beck's right-wing insane movement!" (*DOUBLE GASP!*) She even congratulates Lawrence O'Donnell for doing a "good job" on her a couple of nights ago.
Oh, geez, what am I going to do? I'm a member of both "We the People" and the "9/12 Project." Oh, gosh and golly... THE HORRORS OF IT ALL! /sarc
Then Vogel gets in his swipe, saying that the townhall folks are somehow drowning out other folks with "legitimate questions" at the townhall meetings. Excuse me, Ken, but what in the 1st Amendment says it's only for "legitimate" speech?
And these idiots wonder why MSNBC's ratings are in the toilet. Slobbering Matthews & slobbering Barney are quite the pair. Throw in a teaspoon of Joan Walsh and a pinch of Ken Vogel, and you've got yourself an embicile stew brewing. MENSA need not worry about this crew applying anytime soon.
And Joan, the female questioner didn't call Obama's plan a "Hitler" plan; she called it a "Nazi-style" plan, which literally means "national socialism," and that is EXACTLY what a single-payer plan would be.
