She's touted by the liberal media as one of the brightest commentators on television, yet MSNBC's Rachel Maddow got thoroughly demolished by National Review editor Rich Lowry on Sunday's Meet the Press.

“MSNBC’s supposed brightest commentator doesn’t do very well when there are folks on the set that disagree with her.”
I’ve come to the conclusion that Liberals do not prize wisdom and intelligence. For them, it’s all about personality and cleverness.
Rachel Maddow argues like a girl - lots of eye rolling, smirks, attitude, and emotion but short on logic and facts.
And that is right about where any female likeness ends.
The Democrats will now savage Romney/Ryan whenever Romney/Ryan says somethign Conservative.
The Democrats will now savage Romney/Ryan whenever Romney/Ryan says something that is not Conservative.
And the media will jump all over Romney/Ryan for their blatant hypocrisy.
It's 2008 all over.
Everytime I follow one of these newsbusters “X destroys Y” I am underwhelmed about 80% of the time.
Lowry could have done better in hammering the point of “Then why are all you Libs bashing Ryan?”
Did I miss something? Rich Lowery didn’t “destroy” anybody. If anything, Maddow looked like she won the argument just by her sheer smugness.
She’s a typical liberal; it doesn’t matter that she’s stupid. She’s got rudeness and most important, to them, she’s Gay. There is no way they’ll figure out what a fraud she is. Like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, helping the poor (i.e., the state) has been very, very good for her.
Surrender much? It's looking more like 2010 all over. The fact is 99% of dim bulb moderates who will decide this election don't know Obama has already cut $700 billion from medicare.
That is LAW the dims will have to defend every single time the Ryan PLAN is debated. They don't want that discussion so we will see more Romney killed my wife ads.
Just watched it. Two babbling idiots talking over each other for 3 minutes is all I saw.
I thought he did a good job up until the end. You’re point is well taken though. When she finally asked the question at the end, his response should have been “Romney is at the top of the ticket however your point is well taken; why is the left attacking Paul Ryan when Obama cut 700 billion out of this program?”
Ya know, the libs are always touting their people as the smartest, brightest, etc. Kinda’ makes you wonder if they really believe that, or maybe they know what we know (they’re not!).
She argues like a Dummycrat. Her gender has nothing to do with it.
Not quite. Yes, the MSM can be expected to trash the Republican candidates for President, VP and every other national office; it's their 'template'. But the biggest difference this time around is that Obama is no longer an empty canvas on which people can paint their ideal President. He is a KNOWN quantity this year, and some who voted for him last time have no intention of making that mistake again. They may not be saying that to the pollsters, because they don't want to be thought of as 'racists', which the media tends to do to folks who don't bow at the altar of Obama. I think this is why the polls are still so close; I don't think the election will be.
When I think “destroys” I wanna see someone so bloody and battered that they are embarrassed to show their face on TV for 2 weeks. They gotta be pinned down to the point where the spin doesn’t work. It rarely happens.
That Rachel Maddow guy really creeps me out.
If you didn’t see Lowry trash maddow, you missed a lot. Maddow thinks being a smart-ass is the same as being smart. Many leftists have the same attitude, which is why she’s popular with the snotty college kid crowd. However, her snarky, smirking, sarcasm doesn’t stand up when confronted by facts. Maddow is too stupid to realize this, and gets her ass handed to her whenever she accidentally allows somebody with an actual command of the facts to speak.
Sorry, I can’t watch Madcow clips without projectile vomiting, or at least, violent dry heaves.
Madcow is the perfect Democrat spokesman. She is a flaming radical socialist atheist lesbian feminist propagandist. If she was also a disabled black Jew* on food stamps, she would be the entire Democrat base in one person.
* There are many cultural Jews who are atheists. Jews socially and by tradition but don’t believe in God, like George Soros is.
So she is going to ask Ryan because he's "running for Vice President" but won't ask Obama the same question who is now President and is running again to be President another 4 years...because she herself is not a candidate? What?
Known to a point. We still don’t know his history, and the Dems will want to hide the facts of the last 4 years, which ain’t pretty.
We need to press Obama to what is ahead in his plans. What exactly is the reason he wanted the Russians to play ball and hold out until after the election with that open mike incident with the Russian President? Why would he need to tell a potential adversary that he needed to wait until he didn’t need public opinion for his power in order to do...what?
A few suspicions I have of Obama in his second term, or prior to leaving office if he loses in November;
-Sweeping gun control, as much as he can ram down our throats, as fast as he possibly can.
-Unilateral nuclear disarmament.
-Massive cutbacks in military spending.
-Increased taxes on businesses and those making $100K.
It's all attitude - eye rolling - and classically feminine. If a man acted like that people would use the term 'drama queen' and his ideas would be dismissed. Maddow's a smart woman - she's capable of better. I suspect she's been hanging out in liberal echo chambers too long...
And no, not all women use feminine wiles in a political debate... but Maddow is not among them...
Lowry gets tough and slams Madcow.
Do you EVER get tired of posting this garbage?
You make a powerful and cogent argument against this observation, and yet I continue to think it is a problem.
Why would anybody name his son “Rachel”?
Why would she have to be running for anything to answer the question? She is an activist and spokesman for the President so of course her answer is relevant. It and being a lesbian is the reason she is on that program.
So I don't think this is a fair criticism. It's politics, and has been for a century.
And that is bad for him exactly why?
He added several times that much for his main constituency, welfare. The loudest, most destructive and "entitled" of all.
Like money in the bank.
Yes, just like Gore... mmmmm... Maybe switch it around and say it’s how dems debate? Nah, some wise freeper would point out a conservative male rolling his eyes... best to stop digging this hole. Thanks for sharing. :)
It was a joke - you missed it. I was giving into your point about it not being a feminine trait. Sorry you didn’t catch it. Oh, and the ‘you’re dismissed’ stuff is rude... childish...
Frankly, most voters don't CARE about Obama's history. They only care about the issues that effect them right now, and Paul Ryan can address those directly, to Obama's detriment.
