'The Rachel Maddow Show' 3/8/2011 : ("We Won in Wisconsin", Maddow's premature celebration)
MSNBC Transcripts ^ | March 8th, 2011 | Rachel maddow

Posted on 03/11/2011 8:38:29 AM PST by sickoflibs

Thanks to you at home for staying with us for the next hour.

Hey, Wisconsin, you won. There has been no ceremony, there has been no applause yet, there has been no formal surrender ceremony—but I am telling you, you have won. Congratulations, Wisconsin.

After 22 days of protests in the state that is the cradle of the rights of Americans who work for a living, after 22 days of protests against Republican Governor Scott Walker‘s efforts to strip union rights in Wisconsin, the governor has started to crumble. The governor started to cave. The governor started to do what he said he would never do.

(Walker clip played here by Maddow)

MADDOW: No room to negotiate. That was Governor Scott Walker more than two weeks ago insisting as he did repeatedly that he was not willing to negotiate. He was not willing to budge on union stripping.

But as it turns out, that after picking this fight, after saying he would never negotiate, Governor Walker is negotiating now

clip

Then came news today that Scott Walker‘s own party, the state‘s Senate Republicans caucused, and the news from that caucus was not good for the governor. Remember, the governor can only afford to lose three Republican senators and still get his union-stripping bill passed. And three Republican senators have now made public comments that the Republican governor should compromise

Governor Walker was Masterfull leaking his surrender videos shortly before dropping the nuke on the Democrats hiding out of state.

You had to see Maddow again Wednesday night after the nuke dropped, she asked the Democrat Senators in Il "Did you know this could happen?" It was priceless!

"Did you know this could happen?"

Apparently Madcow was the only one unaware of the possibility. This rule came to light within a day of this becoming a story. Another example of the ignorance of the Commie Rats. Hard to believe they have no ratings over at PMSLSD

Even more hilarious is her recitation of newspaper headlines which appeared to be critical of Walker. Who subscribes to the “opinion leader” model anymore? Rachel, wake up. Not only are newspaper editorial endorsements (or criticisms) not important in elections anymore - no one looks to them to form opinions on policies either.

One vestige of the newspaper era I’d like to see is an errata sheet - a corrections page for Maddow’s show. But I will not hold my breath.

The knew it could happen, it’s been talked about since the beginning of the FLEE PARTY. They were just counting on Republicans not having the balls to actually DO it.

Ms.(?) Maddow, how does that crow taste?

Normally, I don't like to twist knives, but she(?) is so snarky and mean that I find it enjoyable.

Thanks for the ping!!! <3

I am laughing hysterically at that thing. Remember Pat from Saturday Night Live?

Everytime we win something I purposely turn on MSGLBTC to see the psycho libs go nutty!!!

On the other hand I HATE to say this because it is an AWFUL, horrendous tragedy, but tomorrow's union protests are null and void due to the devastation in Japan.

And if the media chooses to cover turds complaining instead of the horror in Japan then they just will prove themselves to the left and center as union outfits.

I swear when I saw the video from Japan it reminded me of the movie "2012", utter devastation. I pray for those affected, they are saying hundreds dead. That is going to rise into the thousands.

And some prick on Chicago Tribune started bashing Fox News and Congressman King on a thread about the Japan Earthquake! Liberals are truly evil people.

Thanks, normally I ad the video link to the post but was too lazy to find it today. I watch her pretty regularly and saw this gloating segment and of course her reaction the next day when the Senate passed the bill.

The MSNBC liberal Cenk Uygur (6pm EST) did the same sort of gloating that day, but I don't find him as annoying and arrogant as Maddow. Maddow always plays the ‘Republicans are stupid racists’ theme.

It is all over but the shouting. Wisconsin, you won.

Can we just take a second to let that sink in for a moment?

OK. As I said, the out of state Wisconsin Senate Democrats are still out of state. They are not claiming victory on this yet.

Oppps.

The ugly, little, skinny guy that's on msnbc at 9:00 stepped on his crank with steel tipped golf shoes.

In the words of maddow's lover, "Just another premature exclamation, anticipation, ejaculation, celebration...".

No lefty bias here. No sir.

I don’t care if she says we won. Just admit you are a leftist, tell that to or audience and let the chips fall where they may.

It isn’t the communists that bother me. It is their lying about not being one that does.

During an interview with conservative talk radio host Charlie Sykes this past Monday, Democrat Mayor Tom Barrett of Milwaukee (and Scott Walker’s former opponent for Governor) said, “You could vote on those without those missing senators. You could vote on those tomorrow morning. You don’t need 20 senators to vote on those changes to the collective bargaining. Again, if someone really wanted to end this standoff, the way you would end it is simply have a separate vote.

Sykes responded with, “Would you favor that?”

“I would certainly favor that”, replied Barrett, who’s top five campaign contributions came from labor unions.

So, great idea and thank you Tom Barrett!
