Shout

September 1st, 2010

“Will you send a message loud and clear that we won’t back down by adding $50 or $100 to our total today? Will you let Harry Reid know that we can’t be intimidated? That we won’t be shouted down by Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow?” – Sharron Angle email to supporters


It’s natural that Far Rightists who watch only Bill O’Reilly and the rest

Naturally assume that Chris, Keith, or Rachel would shout down a guest.

After all, that’s what right wingers on Fox and talk radio regularly do,

So since rightists don’t watch MSNBC, they assume they do it too.

(As I’ve noted before, this is called projection,

Or looking at others and seeing your own reflection.)


As you might have guessed, I watch the Three MSNBCers every day,

And I’ve never seen any of them such behavior display.

When Rand Paul was on,  Rachel treated him extremely politely,

And that’s the same good manners that MSNBC displays nightly.


Of course, Sharron Angle wouldn’t know that personally,

Since she’s dared to appear on MSNBC.

She wants journalists to only ask questions she wants to answer,

And to turn each interviewer into an affiliate campaign financer.

(Chris even said she could come on and solicit donations,

But of course he might also ask her for a few clarifications.)


No, Sharron won’t be shouted down on MSNBC, as she allegedly fears

In the unlikely event that she on the network appears.

Is it fraud for her to suggest to supporters that she’s already been there

And that MSNBC’s treatment of her wasn’t fair?

(I guess it’s no more fraudulent than her other statements

In which she her views and the facts so regularly misrepresents.)


So try it, Sharron – see what a real interview is all about.

And I’m sure they’ll be polite…

Even though you do make us want to shout.
