The Tears of Clowns (A bummed MSNBC)
National Review ^ | September 04, 2008 | Stephen Spruiell

Posted on 09/05/2008 3:21:45 AM PDT by nickcarraway

If you watched MSNBC on mute Wednesday night after Sarah Palin’s speech, it looked like the top story was that a hurricane swept through the North Pole and killed Santa Claus, so crestfallen were the network’s stars. It was the same with the sound up. Keith Olbermann’s first words after the applause in the Xcel Center finally died down were, “That appears to be the end of it.” He sounded relieved.

The same man who literally couldn’t find anything wrong with Barack Obama’s speech in Denver last week — calling it “spellbinding,” “fully realized” and “tough” — found that the best he could say of Palin’s speech was, “People who like this sort of thing will find this… the sort of thing they like.”

Chris Matthews, who gets thrills up his leg when Obama speaks, sounded shell-shocked. “Well, I have to say that I was completely surprised by what I saw,” he said, without an ounce of enthusiasm. “She is a torpedo aimed directly at the ship of Barack and Michelle Obama. That’s what she is. She’s an alternative to them. This is not an alternative to Hillary. This is a cultural alternative to Obama and his proposed First Lady. This is a very direct cultural shot.”

After he’d had a moment to compose himself, Olbermann tried to come up with a better reaction. Of the speech, he said there was some “condescension in there towards Obama.” Condescension is an interesting word. Here’s a woman who was belittled for being a small-town mayor by a guy who described small-town people as clinging to their guns and religion because they’re bitter. And yet, when she hits him back, she’s the condescending one.

It wasn’t just MSNBC’s anchors who were struggling to respond. On the floor of the convention center, a visibly depressed Andrea Mitchell interviewed a beaming Rudy Giuliani about Palin’s speech. Some context: Last week, reporting from among the Democratic delegates at Invesco Field, Mitchell relayed the reaction of the delegates to some of Obama’s best lines, literally shouting, “Whooee! Whooee!” into the camera.

But there would be no sharing in the Republican delegates’ joy over Palin’s speech for Mitchell. Instead, after her interview with Rudy was over (sample question: “And you don’t think she’s vulnerable on the size and scale of her executive experience and the brevity of her political experience?”), she stared dead-eyed into the camera and said, “The war has begun.”

Some might say the war actually began when the media decided to aggressively pursue every smear against Palin the left-wing blogosphere could think up. First, they questioned the maternity of Palin’s son, Trig, after a left-wing blog accused Palin of faking the pregnancy to cover for her daughter, Bristol. This forced the campaign to make a very private matter — Bristol’s real pregnancy — public. (Bristol’s pregnancy predates Trig’s birth by two months, proving she’s not his mother.)

The latest smear is an attempt to paint Palin as an anti-Semite. Two weeks ago, the executive director of a group called Jews for Jesus spoke at Palin’s church. Her pastor says she was in church that day. The guest speaker made some controversial comments and insinuated that the conflict in the Middle East is attributable to God’s “judgment of unbelief.” So, just to be clear: This was a guest speaker, not a man that Palin sought out, befriended, and received spiritual guidance from for over 20 years.

Nevertheless, the newest addition to MSNBC’s prime-time line-up, Air America radio host Rachel Maddow, was quick to imbue this story with grave portent Wednesday night after Palin’s speech. “Was she sitting in the pew in her church in Wasilla two weeks ago when a speaker said that the Israelis deserves terrorist attacks because Jews are unbelievers in Christ?” Maddow said. “I mean, there are tough questions she’s going to have to answer.”

Maybe so. Maybe someday, the media’s campaign to bury Sarah Palin will yield something more substantial than the smears and innuendo we’ve seen so far. Maybe somewhere, a left-wing blogger is closely inspecting a JPEG that will sink McCain’s campaign. But there is no joy in MSNBC-ville — mighty Sarah has struck back.

I’m starting to think that MSNBC’s audience is made up of MSNBC employees, who then go on-air and talk about what they’ve just seen.

I can testify to this. Immediately after this interview my phone rang and it was a good friend of mine who asked me if he was imagining it or was Mitchell about to start crying during her interview with Giuliani? Palin has stunned the liberals and you can expect them to double down on their vicious attacks on her. However as seen by everyone, this woman is anything but a shrinking Violet and in fact seems to actually grow in the face of the attacks on her.

On CNN, a visibly shaken and speechless Wolf Blitzer suddenly developed a craving for country music and requested an immediate camera with audio cut to the band playing on stage saying “let’s listen to this country music... this is some we haven’t heard.” I figured he needed time to get over the shock and get his new talking points from DNC as Palin’s homerun changed the previously dictated script. I haven’t seen him so near the verge of tears since Bush got the winning electoral votes for the 2nd term.

Good point - after belittling Saracuda's position as Mayor and even mispronouncing it so the end sounded "silly", Obama and his campaign have the gall to bitch about her explaining that a Mayor differs from an "organizer" in that a Mayor has responsibilities, because that "demeans Barry's work in the community".

Not even See B.S. could contain the damage Sarah Palin did to the good ship make believe. They have it flat even at 42 which means 16 undecideds. The undecideds aren’t. Most of them are probably bradley effect voters.

I watched Matthews on TV yesterday. He said nothing but nice things about Sarah and got in a few jabs at Olberman.

He also stated that he believed she could be President one day.

YES SHE CAN

MSN has become such a joke. Maybe that’s why almost no one is watching. Drudge says nearly 3 times as many people have watched Fox during the convention. I suspect only angry lefties, like the scum who interrupted McCain, are the ones watching.

There is no shortage of leftists. Underestimating the number of them would be a mistake. Besides being comprised of loonie-lefties, MSNBC merely caters to that audience. MSNBC is an excellent bellwether for "progressive" reaction, lies, half-truths, and lines of argument.

I watched the same network after Sarah Palin's speech, just for that reason. Andrea Mitchell looked like she was on depressants - Nora O'Donnell was at first enthused by the speech, but soon picked up the contact "anti-buzz" from her peers in the network, that she needed to find ways to criticize.

The guest speaker made some controversial comments and insinuated that the conflict in the Middle East is attributable to God’s “judgment of unbelief.”

I just HATE it went folks do that!


Hebrews 3:16-19
 16.  Who were they who heard and rebelled? Were they not all those Moses led out of Egypt?
 17.  And with whom was he angry for forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose bodies fell in the desert?
 18.  And to whom did God swear that they would never enter his rest if not to those who disobeyed ?
 19.  So we see that they were not able to enter, because of their unbelief.
 

 
Romans 11
 
 1.  I ask then: Did God reject his people? By no means! I am an Israelite myself, a descendant of Abraham, from the tribe of Benjamin.
 2.  God did not reject his people, whom he foreknew. Don't you know what the Scripture says in the passage about Elijah--how he appealed to God against Israel:
 3.  "Lord, they have killed your prophets and torn down your altars; I am the only one left, and they are trying to kill me" ?
 4.  And what was God's answer to him? "I have reserved for myself seven thousand who have not bowed the knee to Baal."
 5.  So too, at the present time there is a remnant chosen by grace.
 6.  And if by grace, then it is no longer by works; if it were, grace would no longer be grace.
 7.  What then? What Israel sought so earnestly it did not obtain, but the elect did. The others were hardened,
 8.  as it is written: "God gave them a spirit of stupor, eyes so that they could not see and ears so that they could not hear, to this very day."
 9.  And David says: "May their table become a snare and a trap, a stumbling block and a retribution for them.
 10.  May their eyes be darkened so they cannot see, and their backs be bent forever."
 11.  Again I ask: Did they stumble so as to fall beyond recovery? Not at all! Rather, because of their transgression, salvation has come to the Gentiles to make Israel envious.
 12.  But if their transgression means riches for the world, and their loss means riches for the Gentiles, how much greater riches will their fullness bring!
 13.  I am talking to you Gentiles. Inasmuch as I am the apostle to the Gentiles, I make much of my ministry
 14.  in the hope that I may somehow arouse my own people to envy and save some of them.
 15.  For if their rejection is the reconciliation of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead?
 16.  If the part of the dough offered as firstfruits is holy, then the whole batch is holy; if the root is holy, so are the branches.
 17.  If some of the branches have been broken off, and you, though a wild olive shoot, have been grafted in among the others and now share in the nourishing sap from the olive root,
 18.  do not boast over those branches. If you do, consider this: You do not support the root, but the root supports you.
 19.  You will say then, "Branches were broken off so that I could be grafted in."
 20.  Granted. But they were broken off because of unbelief, and you stand by faith. Do not be arrogant, but be afraid.
 21.  For if God did not spare the natural branches, he will not spare you either.
 22.  Consider therefore the kindness and sternness of God: sternness to those who fell, but kindness to you, provided that you continue in his kindness. Otherwise, you also will be cut off.
 23.  And if they do not persist in unbelief, they will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again.
 24.  After all, if you were cut out of an olive tree that is wild by nature, and contrary to nature were grafted into a cultivated olive tree, how much more readily will these, the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree!
 25.  I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers, so that you may not be conceited: Israel has experienced a hardening in part until the full number of the Gentiles has come in.
 26.  And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: "The deliverer will come from Zion; he will turn godlessness away from Jacob.

That’s not depression, that’s medication. Valuim or Xanax, she was swallowing them like M&Ms.

I liked Brit Hume. After reading a canned response from the Obama campaign, he looked at the camera and said well maybe they’ll have something more original to say after they have had time to think about it.

I saw that, too. And he delivered it with a great deadpan look. Classic Hume.

Video of Maddow (from last week?) going on and on about McCain's mistake in chosing Palin.
"Decision process of hiring her is shocking"

"This has been greeted with such shock."

"It's becoming less possible by the hour that Palin will be John McCain's nominee by the end of the week"

To sum up what Maddow said: The RNC "has a very short time frame" in which to get rid of her before she accepts the nomination.

Olbermann is the DU’s hero. And that’s who he plays to.

I’ve stopped watching the football broadcasts until he’s off. Rush Limbaugh is unacceptable, but Olbermann is? Who the heck thinks they’re running this country?

“like the scum who interrupted McCain, are the ones watching.”

Can’t those loathesome people shut up for twenty minutes? They are so full of themselves, they think they are more important than McCain’s speech. We know your opinions, lefties, now stuff a rag in it.

"That’s not depression, that’s medication. Valuim or Xanax, she was swallowing them like M&Ms."

Probably the only way she could stomach being amongst so many right-wing Republicans.......
