Just watched the Theissen interview. That man is either dumb as a brick, or is a blatantly morally bankrupt propagandist.

It's like he's never engaged in a genuine conversation with someone who disagrees with him, and is baffled and angered by the interaction itself.

That interview made me insane.

To tell the truth, I couldn't bring myself to watch the continuation. What I saw on the air was pretty bad and gave me no reason to think he had something insightful to say beyond what he'd already tried.

By the end Stewart has his head in his hands as Theissen refuses over and over to agree with analytically true statements while the audience laughs.

I'm not saying you're a pedophile, just, isn't it interesting that you keep defending them?

You can be both. You have to be dumb in that way that voids self critical review, then be engineered to propagandize because you sincerely believe that it is the Good Thing To Do.

For society/nation/God/whatev

Personally I think that Theissen is the worst type of evil a person can be.

Charlie Crist implicates not only the guy he hand picked to chair the GOP in Florida, but also manages to catch-up Mark Rubio, his challenger in the upcoming primary, in the same sticky corruption/tax-evasion web...

...at this point, i can only guess crist is counting on some of those undead easter-zombie powers

Ruh-Roh

in the wake of Rupert Murdock incredulously denying accusations that his cable broadcast news station is happy, hearty, teaparty-hack central and promising to "look into it," life is getting complicated at teaparty-hack central:

he wrote:
But senior Fox News executives said they were not aware Hannity was being billed as the centerpiece of the event or that Tea Party organizers were charging for admission to Hannity’s show as part of the rally. They first learned of it Thursday morning from John Finley, Hannity’s executive producer, who was in Cincinnati to produce Hannity’s show.

Furious, top officials recalled Hannity back to New York to do his show in his regular studio. The network plans to do an extensive post-mortem about the incident with Finley and Hannity’s staff.

“Fox News never agreed to allow the Cincinnati Tea Party organizers to use Sean Hannity’s television program to profit from broadcasting his show from the event,” said Bill Shine, the network’s executive vice president of programming. “When senior executives in New York were made aware of this, we changed our plans for tonight’s show.”


she wrote:
Shortly after the scheduled book signing (which was canceled) Fox News producers onsite informed the Cincinnati Tea Party senior leadership that Mr. Hannity had to rush home for a personal emergency. The Cincinnati Tea Party expressed a statement of support and concern to Hannity and family.

The Cincinnati Tea Party received information from local media attributing concerns regarding ticketing to a executive vice president at the Fox News Network. The Cincinnati Tea Party has not been able to confirm the authenticity of this message via a source this statement to any @foxnews.com email or http://www.FoxNews.com website. Emails and phone calls to network went unanswered until 7:48 p.m. — more than four hours after the scheduled appearance; this source has not yet put it in writing despite our request.

The [internal rnc] investigation found that the Republican Party's national governing body is losing money on its major-donors' fundraising program -- spending $1.09 for each $1.00 raised, according to RNC members privy to the investigation's findings. It typically costs about 40 cents for every dollar raised from donors who give more than $1,000.


...The report also notes the party's well-compensated finance chief is getting a percentage of the gross, rather than the net, which sets up a questionable incentive

what is it about the republican party that makes it so attractive to gay men, and particularly (apparently) closeted gay men? i mean, you'd think right from the start, they'd see it was doomed to be a totally dysfunctional relationship.

i can't say for certain what it is but tell me -- haven't you met an unfortunate number of people in your lifetime who seem instinctively driven to establish dysfunctional relationships?

I thought everyone knew this already? He resigned from the RNC in part because his sexuality was an open secret.
