OK - I’m going to stop watching MSNBC.

I’m really going to miss Chrissy Matthews and Rachel Madcow.

I think I’ll boycott the RNC over amnesty instead.

Why would Reince call on conservatives for anything? I thought you not only don’t need conservatves but don’t even want them as well.

Here’s a quarter Priebus, go call someone who cares what you think.

I’d suggest we deport Runtz down to Juarez where he seems to think the rest of us want to live.

Hey Reince. Why don’t you call your buddies at the Chamber of Amnesty to do it?

Please, Reince. Quit spending your time on such trivial pursuits. Go back to bashing Tea Party candidates and scheduling open primaries.

Uh, Reince - - - .

Yeah - - - .

Here is the way it is: we are boycotting you.

Yeah, you are just NOT cut out to be a WARRIOR.

We vividly remember your support of “Romneycare” Romney.

Bye.

As far as I’m concerned, conservatives have already dealt with MSNBC in our own way.

An apology from MSNBC may not mean a lot but it does force them to face their own bigotry.

Classic Marxist. MSNBC host insults Romney's bi-racial family photo and then apologizes.
They quickly produce a very expensive ad accusing the republicans of being the ones who are against bi=racial families.

Um Reince, what makes you think we aren’t already? Good grief, he really thinks any Republican still watches PMSNBC? Is this really the way this man thinks? No wonder we are struggling when we should be flourishing. I want Haley Barbour back.

Isn't RNC chairman supposed to be a real strategist? And this is what he's been worrying about? Mid-term election year, no less.

I think the upper echelons of the GOP will be screwing the base (besides the usual stuff) in more inventive ways.

Reince, we have much bigger fish we should be frying right about now. Speaking of overdone dishes, how soon can we RINSE THE REICE AWAY? This year, I hope, and take J. BON, with you! (J.Bon=Boehner)

Does anyone still watch PMSNBC? If nobody is watching can there really be a boycott? Andy why this fight for the RNC? There have been plenty of times I wished the RNC would have spoken out...they finally do and its this issue?

He’s just using the old tactic of finding an enemy outside to direct attention elsewhere.

In this case, conservatives dealt with this issue immediately and decisively last night with Michelle Malkin leading the charge.

They didn't produce any ad. Cheerios did. In the commercial, a girl apparently likes the Cheerios her dad gives her. To conservatives, just like any other cereal commercial. But to liberals, it was a biracial girl with a white dad. They notice such things.

So then MSNBC put out a news item predicting the ad would outrage conservatives.

Who gives a crap what the left says?

When are we going to start fighting back? How about discussing the disbandment of the Black & Hispanic Caucus? How about discussing disbandment of all race based political and lobbying groups? How about discussing Affirmative Action and all other anti white BS?

People watch MSNBC? Who knew? You could walk into my office right now and offer me $1 million to tell you what channel it is on my TV, and I wouldn’t be able to.

It ended up that the people most offended by the commercial were black women, but that doesn't quite fit the narrative.

Is this the same out-of-touch-with-the base Priebus who, last week, excused the Democrats for their lies and misrepresentations of a Huckabee statement, thereby giving them "cover" for those lies.

You know, to Priebus, those bad old conservatives (even Huckabee) don't respect the "fence" so-called "Progressives" have put around free speech (PC) and must self-censor every word so that their statements are so meaningless that even Democrats can't misinterpret or lie about them.

Now, that's smart thinking about how to engage in the battle of ideas! (Sarc)

Why would any right wing person watch MSDNC anyway, other than to analyze the enemy and for a few snorts and giggles?

Why in the hell should he even have to call for Conservatives to boycott MSNBC? Why would any Conservative watch that line-up of sexual, political and social perverts? I’d rather watch a dog crapping in my yard.
