Shuster: Baucus Sober, Drudge 'Repulsive'
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 12/29/2009 1:40:01 PM PST by governsleastgovernsbest

Wow: David Shuster really lets it all hang out on Twitter . . .

In current tweets, the MSNBCer accuses Karl Rove of "hypocrisy," calls conservatives "wingnuts," claims Baucus wasn't wasted, and denounces Drudge as "repulsive" for supposedly suggesting otherwise.

Excerpts from Shuster's current Twitter feed [screencap after the jump]:

* Thank you Wingnuts! By mentioning my tweets, you are bringing more attention to @karlrove hypocrisy * Wingnuts, just because you want to believe something is true does not make it so. Obama wasn't born in Kenya. Baucus wasn't inebriated. * Baucus speech was at 430pm in the afternoon. He was incensed at Wicker. He was emotional. To smear him, as drudge does, is repulsive. * Re Baucus emotional floor speech last week: He always speaks in a halting fashion. The wingnut claims are lies and disgusting smears.

Wow, not only do reporters selectively disclose facts to shape the news, but now David Shuster is taking it a step further and telling us that what we see with our own eyes is not to be believed. The video feed clearly shows that Bachus is impaired.

I’m also intrigued by his use of this phrase “wingnuts.” The only people that I hear using the term are... well.. wingnuts.

Shuster is to Obama what Lewinsky was to Clinton.

Shuster is an execrable individual. And come to think of it, he’s almost never on Morning Joe anymore. Wonder why...

Dear David,
Just because you want to believe something is not true, doesn’t mean it isn’t.

Obama’s father was a British subject, thus he is not a “natural-born citizen.”

Baucus was either drunk, on drugs, or has an impediment.

OH..4:30 in the afternoon..I mean, NOBODY gets drunk before 4:30 in the afternoon!!! LOL!!! Meanwhile, Baucus can go on and say the most outrageous lies about Republicans, but heaven forbid we should accuse this Dem of being drunk. I truly, truly hate these people.

I changed my tagline for bozo's like you Schuster. Observe:

OK, Shuster.How’s this?

At some point in the future, on a date of our choosing, Baucus agrees to blow into a Breathalyzer on the Senate floor. If he declines, he automatically resigns his seat.

Deal?

I'm inclined to accept the explanation offered by Baucus' office: It's impossible to determine whether of not Baucus is drunk by merely observing his behavior and listening to his speech.

Shuster is to Obama what Lewinsky was to Clinton.

Slight correction:
Shuster is to Obama what Sid Blumenthal was to Clinton.
(Not that there's a lot of difference between what Monica did and what Sidney (or Shuster) did...)
What's that taste in your mouth, Dave?

What a tool. I've known more than a few people in my life who drank before 4:30pm, including my Grandfather, who was usually drunk by noon.

Schuster is a bloviating idiot.

Slurred speech, rambling, repetitive diatribe, more slurred speech.

It’s impossible to determine whether of not Baucus is drunk by merely observing his behavior and listening to his speech.

Because that would be profiling, and profiling is always wrong. (As Ron White likes to say)

The few times I’ve seen Shuster he has that same crazed-eye look that I’ve seen in (the few times I’ve seen) Schultz. I noticed while channel surfing last nite that Keithie had it too.

The proof is in the pudding with these clowns. They’re nutty, off their rockers, filled with hate and low self esteem. Just watch them next time, they try to cover their insecurities with cockiness. Instead they look like lunatics, wild eyed like their heads are going to explode.

LOL

Shuster’s wife Julianna Goldman:
reports on the White House and Congress for Bloomberg News, and he on politics for MSNBC, appearing regularly on “Hardball With Chris Matthews” and “Countdown With Keith Olbermann.”

Democrats all.

Well, if he always speaks that way he is a rather pathetic excuse for a senator. Slurring, repeating words and phrases 3 or 4 times, unable to hold a stream of thought, unable to find the right words....

I had no idea who this Shuster thing was until this post, but I look at him and have a single overwhelming impression:


Frowning takes 68 muscles.
Smiling takes 6.
Pulling this trigger takes 2.
I'm lazy.
