That’s for every democratic politician who thought this would get votes for them!

And for Oprah and Arianna Huffington and anyone else who paid people to come.

They are still talking Colbert on Morning Joe. I have yet to see them mention the DOJ scandal this week, Washington post front page not withstanding.

Politico right now is saying that Democrats regret having him up there, I think the administration doesn’t regret it at all. Mission accomplished!

Remember the worst media bias is not the actual report, it is choosing what stories get reported (re: Time and Militia this week) and those that do not (DOJ scandal).

For your discussion and debate #1 Some poll results are more permanent than others

Looking at current polls. Obama is shown in poll with only 40% or so believing he deserves re-election. Joe points out in perspective saying that his polls were comparable with Clinton 2004 & Reagan 1982, can’t make this the last word…

…then in the same poll Obama is shown beating Sarah Palin in a 2012 match up and the Same Joe Scarborough touts this as more proof that she can sell books but can’t be elected and Mika breathes a sigh of relief.

My take: How is one poll a snapshot of time and the other set in stone? Joe’s point about the president is right but it applies equally to Sarah Palin. How was Reagan polling in 1978 for example?

For your discussion and debate #2 Some stories are more relevant than others

Colbert took his act to SNL The comedy connection a congressional hearing on Friday and Mika’s reaction indicates she found it just as appealing and appropriate as leading the day’s news with Paris Hilton. Her comment was classic: “Who are these people who are the 21% that approve of congress?” Mark Halperin pointed out Pelosi & Hoyer disagreed on the appearance noting that this should be a bigger story….

…yet there was not a word about the other Friday Hearings on the air DOJ RACISM SCANDALS made the Washington Post front page but as of 7:08 Morning Joe hasn’t touched it. I submit that this is not coincidence. I think democrats wanted that coverage off of TV and as far as Morning Joe goes, that’s exactly what they’ve got. As John Nolte put it: Mission Accomplished.

My Take: I know they had their education day scheduled for a while but I’d like to see Mika decide for the 8 a.m. hour to lead with Christopher Coates testimony instead of Colbert a-la Paris. She has 45 minutes. Will she do it?

Different individuals have different expertise, I don’t know if Stephen Colbert has any more specific information about illegal immigration than anyone else, but I do know this.

If you are going to testify on the people’s dime in the people’s house it is not meant to be a publicity stunt done in character.

But clown Colbert’s Democrat enablers aren’t interested in serious debate. They’re interested in promoting illegal alien amnesty by any means necessary — even it means turning a House hearing into a Comedy Central stage.

If democrats want to know why they are heading for the defeat they are, it’s because they have the same respect for the voter as they do for the people’s house.
