is Halperin a conservative or a disenchanted liberal? (I don’t follow these guys...so I’m not being sarcastic, I really don’t know and would be curious to know).

He's a lib but has lately been more pragmatic with his analysis...in other words, he's told the truth.

You can only use that sort of language when you’re talking about a Republican on MSNBC-and it helps if you’re Chris Matthews.

Well, consider this: Halperin, who also is an editor-at large for Time

I don't think you get to sit in THAT chair if you're conservative.

My initial reaction to the headline was “What, he said that Obama wasn’t perfect?”

It has to be absolutely exhausting having to tow the party line and compliment the beautiful clothes the naked emperor wears...

Mark Halperin wrote “Game Change,” and it was highly complimentary about TDIC. (The Dick in Chief). But in liberalville, one still must toe the line or be punished.

The WHOLE MSM TV INDUSTRY is patently LIBS and LIBERTINES. Means DEMOCRATS. With little moral or family values.

Slo-mo the video.

Note the sound room at the time of the "dick" gaffe. A total of FOUR FOR FOUR of the technicians have smirks on their faces, especially the sound babe in the extreme background. These are sinners in judges robes. They are ALL NASTY and corrupt to the core.

Not to be confused with Mark Helprin - conservative author and commentator (I was confused for years)

That explains why Obama has been screwing us.

At least he didn’t call Obama a Flake.

Halperin’s father is employed by George Soros. This isn’t the first time junior has wandered off the rez.

Halperin is right, instead of putting his hand over his heart during the Pledge of Alegance, he uses both hands to hold up his D—K!

Wouldn’t it be great if he signed a deal with FOX News now?

Dick defined: One whose hair is always messed up; his relatives are nuts and his closest neighbor is an a**hole.
