Tuesday morning Politico’s Roger Simon posted an article which was clearly not meant to be taken seriously. The thrust of the piece was that Paul Ryan had become unhinged and was “marching around his campaign bus, saying things like, ‘If Stench calls, take a message’ and ‘Tell Stench I’m having finger sandwiches with Peggy Noonan and will text him later.'” Stench was supposedly Ryan’s new nickname for Mitt Romney.
If that weren’t outlandish enough, on page two of the piece, Simon writes, “A word about PowerPoint. PowerPoint was released by Microsoft in 1990 as a way to euthanize cattle using a method less cruel than hitting them over the head with iron mallets. After PETA successfully argued in court that PowerPoint actually was crueler than iron mallets, the program was adopted by corporations for slide show presentations.”
Lawrence O’Donnell at MesSNBC took the piece seriously and took the airwaves repeating the story as the gospel.
Hey Larry, satire – it’s a vocabulary word taught in middle schools across the country that apparently overpaid liberal talking heads refuse to understand. Clearly these people didn’t even have the education or professionalism to finish reading the article. If you can’t realize that a computer slideshow presentation program was not released as a way “to euthanize cattle,” I’m not sure there is any hope at all.
When I heard this guy my soul ached… not because he was attacking Romney, but because of the abhorrent tune he gave to his voice. He’s in the media for Pete’s sake! He can’t go around bashing a candidate with such offensive “sarcasm” when the one he protects is out there feeding innocent American lives to the Muslim Brotherhood everywhere in the world.
It makes me sick; it literally fills me with nausea. To think this guy is somehow influencing people with his abominable lies makes me want to cry of sorrow for the millions of Americans that will suffer if Obama keeps the White House.
O’Donnell and his cronies are just gutter snipes. He is worse than Olberman and we know what happened with him. When I see him talk, it is like snake oil is coming out the corners of his mouth. He can smile and say the most ridiculous things at the same time. How bad will it get before no one but the kool aid drinkers will watch? Matthews, maddow(MadCow) are all snobs. They think they the air heads that they know so much more than we do…that they will inform us the groveling zombies what to do on Voting Day. They are ignoring highest gas prices and going up, Insurance going through the roof, High grocery and meat prices, no Jobs, businesses going out of business, freedoms taken away, our military gutted, coal mines closing this month in record no because of epa new regulations, no oil drilling, no new trade agreements, homes in foreclosure, and in Dec/Jan you will be hit with the highest taxes ever and don’t blame Republicans, this has been on Obamas docket for 2 yrs. It was his big idea for sequestration and now doesn’t want to say it was his baby
It baffles me how the dems have their heads so deep in the sand and continue to give Obama a free pass no matter what he DOESN’T DO. And on the same token, some of his own party can’t even support him because of his broken promises and failures. We are headed toward a European way of life and this president will continue to take us there if reelected. I do not want to leave this earth knowing my daughter will struggle to make ends meet from the decisions Obama chooses for her. From the beginning he basically lied to us as Americans that the penalty to waive health care coverage was NOT a tax. We found out otherwise, it’s the largest tax imposed on Americans in history. His budget cannot pass his entire 3 year term it has been voted down.
I’d take any horror movie with more blood than life people in it than this kind of press…being examples, yet he chose to keep it partisan.I can keep going, anyone else want to continue where I left off??. as a voter I have always went to the polls on election day and casted my vote believing I did my part as a citizen. But this time around its much more than casting a vote. Its more about trying to convince anyone who will listen- those being a democrat- who still are on this trip Obama is this great leader and has been good for our country. If you take the blinders off and see that this great speech giver has fed you nothing but promises he can’t deliver, hopefully you will see his record will prove why we are where we are. And it’s not from an inherited mess he claims to have been handed.
