YOU PICKED A FINEMAN TIME TO CYA:

If Republicans defy the polls and pundits ...: A 'pre-nalysis' of a better-than-expected showing (Howard Fineman, 11/06/06, MSNBC)


What's a card-carrying member of the MSM to do if he wakes up one morning and realizes that in a conservative Judeo-Christian country with gas around $2, unemployment at 4.4% and the stock market at new record levels, there isn't much reason to expect a throw-out-the-bums tidal wave? Well, if you're Mr. Fineman you cite a bunch of completely trivial recent factoids (North Korea returning to 6 party talks?) and accuse Republicans of racism. And he wonders why Americans think the media is the enemy?

YOU PICKED A FINEMAN TIME TO CYA

Is this like "You picked a fine time to leave me, Lucille?"

All together now:

YOU PRAT! YOU GOON! YOU DOLT!

"The controversy it generated actually was the first time many voters in East Tennessee learned that Ford was an African-American."

This is easily the most idiotic thing I've read this election cycle. Even though they're from Memphis, the Fords are a very high-profile (and crooked) political family in Tennessee, and we don't need a manufactured story by the national media to introduce us to one of our own.

I'd like to see Howard deliever this ever-so-mild rebuke during one of his regular appearances with Keith Olbermann. He'd be shouted down as a heretic and possibly even burned at the stake by the time Joe Scarborough came on to placate the Kos/DU/MoveOn folks' anger.
