Just an FYI Scott Brown (Banking vote not withstanding) is the single most popular pol in Massachusetts.

And here is Mark Penn who keeps saying “8” years taking the time to forget the democrats controlling the house since 06.

Mika’s dad and Pat spar on taxes but are shaking hands on taking troop withdrawals worldwide troops home.

Norah keeps talking government “Investment”. The Government doesn’t “Invest” it taxes business and individuals and then spends said tax money.

The bottom line of their discussion. The people aren’t realizing how much better we are because of Obama. They must be using Cato’s Naked Victoria Secret Models method via Glenn to measure progress.

Update: this is what I’m talking about

I’m going to claim that I enjoyed a week of debauchery with the Victoria’s Secret models. And if any of them are rude enough to point out that I’m lying, I’ll simply explain that I started with an assumption of spending -7 nights with the supermodels. And since I actually spent zero nights with them, that means a net of +7.”

They’d get a lot more attention using this method anyway.

The first being the murder of a young college girl in Virginia.

George Huguely, 22, of Chevy Chase had been the starting quarterback, an honor roll student and a lacrosse all-American at the renowned Landon School.

Yeardley Love, 22, of Baltimore County had been a four-year member of the lacrosse and field hockey teams at Notre Dame Prep in Baltimore.

At some point, they had a romantic relationship. But early Monday, Love was found dead inside her apartment, and a few hours later, Huguely was charged in her death.

This is a horrible thing and our hearts rightly go out to her family and community.

The second despicable thing is Norah O’Donnell report that just showed on MSNBC.

O’Donnell when reporting on the Murder brings up the Duke LaCross case and mentions a letter where the accused murder wrote how those players were treated unfairly.

The only even remote connection between the two cases was the fact that the girl was a lacrosse player and the falsely accused Duke players were also lacrosse players. Update: Apparently the girl’s killer played lacrosse too.

For O’Donnell to bring this up to suggest that Huguely’s support of the falsely accused Duke players has any connection to this and to include it in her report is a journalist disgrace. To use this murder to try to score a cheap political point is disgusting and says a lot about O’Donnell. None of it honorable.

I would hope that MSNBC refutes O’Donnell and she considers an apology. As the report took place on Morning Joe I’ll tweet him to see what they say.

Update: The producers and editors of that story owe an apology too.

Update 2: Legal insurrection finds some slightly less despicable but misleading reporting. Ironically both reporters mentioned are regulars on Morning Joe too.

On Morning Joe today Norah O’Donnell asked a newspaperman on the set why he didn’t publish the Edwards story during the primaries.

Well this question was certainly proper. After all O’Donnell works for NBC so she is certainly not familiar with how a news organization is supposed to operate.

Some people just parody themselves.

Update: Same story different characters. Of course Bill Clinton sleeping around is not really news is it?
