Does Joan Walsh have the hots for Nick Gillespie?

Libertarianism is for petulant children: Ayn Rand, Rand Paul and the movement’s sad “rebellion”

S(t)alon, the leftover website edited by Joan Walsh, a frequent MSNBC contributor, pretty much has a daily piece chock full of howlers attacking libertarians.

For months my hypothesis has been this was just whoring, socialist street walkers after capitalist cash, as the articles usually target particular libertarian divas with a big fan base: Ayn Rand, Ron Paul, Rand Paul.  Essentially this clickbait is a form of pay per view porn, where proglodytes can join  David Sirocco or some other nerdy pajama boy, minimally cooler than they are, in a gang rape of that uppity bitch’s (Ayn Rand’s) bones.

But the tone of recent articles, like the one above calling libertarians juvenile, suggest a new diagnosis.  It’s projection.  These nerdy leftovers are infatuated with libertarians, like a smelly, borderline autistic kid making prank calls or stalking a beautiful and popular student who doesn’t even know they exist.

In her recent appearances it looks like Joan Walsh has had her famously rodent-like dentition ground down, a new hair cut, and maybe a little freshening around the eyes.  If she can’t land Nick for some extramarital hanky panky, perhaps she’s aiming to get a show as MSNBC cleans the Ronan and the Sharpton out of its stables.  The old mare may ride yet!

What a difference a day makes at MSNBC – Bergdahl

PRUDEN: Bowe Bergdahl, bad bargain – Washington Times

Last night the Madcow said the Bowe Bergdahl scandal was fake; today Mika on Morning Joe says “I don’t want to call Susan Rice a liar but….”  The Madcow went on at length claiming any question of our Maximum Leader’s terrorist swap were the result of a cabal concocted by a known avowed homosexual, Richard Grenell, a former Boosh appointee to the UN.  She didn’t actually name Mr. Grenell, or ask whether he might be a secret Jooo.

Some libertarians, like historian Thaddeus Russell, are saying as libertarians we should support deserters.  That may be so in almost all wars.  But joining the other side and helping them target your former co-workers is more than desertion.  And being pro-jihad is not being anti-war.  So it is more complicated.

NBC – Nerdy, Boring Communists?

11 Feb

NBC, which has an exclusive contract with Russia for the Sochi Olympics coverage, has been praising Vladimir Putin and the noble experiment of Stalinism. It also edited out pro-gay, anti-discrimination remarks from its broadcast of the opening speeches at Sochi. No word yet on whether Rachel Maddow and other house gays on the NBC plantation have any comment.

“The towering presence, the empire that ascended to affirm a colossal footprint. The revolution that birthed one of modern history’s pivotal experiments. But if politics has long shaped our sense of who they are, it’s passion that endures. As a more reliable right to their collective heart. What they build in aspirations lifted by imagination. What they craft, through the wonder of every last detail. How magical the fusion of sound and movement can be. How much a glass of distilled perfection and an overflowing table can matter. Discover the Russian people through these indelible signatures. Discover what we share with them through the games that open here tonight.”

Statist disinfo site "Crooks and Liars" spazzes out over the boogeyman of Gary Johnson’s radical libertarianism

Robert Sarvis for Governor

I went to a Virginia Libertarian candidate forum to bring you Robert Sarvis and the other Virginia candidates but…Robert Sarvis wasn’t there!

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

(This first video from MSNBC cannot be viewed on an IPad or some other tablet devices, unlike the YouTube’s below.  Sorry.)

Because he is now doing mainstream media almost full time, as he is getting almost 10% of the vote.

He still has virtually no money.  He has great ads on youtube that could be on TV, if you donate here.

State assembly candidates Laura Delhomme (Arlington), Anthony Tellez (Falls Church), and Patrick Hagerty spoke on Obamacare, the drug war, and abolishing the Virginia income tax.

More Madcow sloppy research

David Koch’s got a dime for you

I worked on David Koch’s campaign as a college intern and I am pretty sure these were minted by independent hard money supporters, not the campaign.

But then, La (?) Madcow once reported that I live in Maine, when I’ve been there once, for a weekend, in my whole life.

I contacted one of the communications staff in the Clark/Koch campaigns’ national head quarters (who I happened to be pre-civilly unioned with at the time) just to check my memory and got this response:
It definitely was not the campaign or David Koch.  Zero chance.

As usual: facts 2, Rachel 0.
Like when she claimed in a published interview to be the only out gay person in her undegrad years at Stanford in the 80s.   Roflmao.

Netroots Nation: "I see white people."

What’s green, liberal, and white all over?

Maybe Jonathan Chait (Chris Matthews, David Gregory, Hilary Rosen, Jay Carney, Dana Milbanks, Chuck Todd, Eugene Robinson, Andrea Mitchell, Bob Bauer and Anita Dunn…) will feel safe to leave his lily white Chevy Chase neighborhood and cover it?
