Introducing: The Next Moderator in the Republican Debates


Yes, the Stupid Party has agreed to more debates sponsored and moderated by the Demedia. We are now introduced to the new moderators.

[Warning: Link to that Old Gray Strumpet]
NBC is to announce on Monday morning that it has hired Chelsea Clinton to become a full-time special correspondent for NBC News.

The appointment is immediate. Ms. Clinton will show up at the news division offices on Monday morning, said Steve Capus, president of NBC News, and will begin work on stories that NBC expects to use as part of its “Making a Difference” series, which runs on “NBC Nightly News.”

Isn’t that just lovely? Aren’t you excited?

This is the same Demedia that positively nailed President Barky with this hard hitting question:

“Last night at the Republican debate, some of the hopefuls, they hope to get your job, they defended the practice of waterboarding which is a practice you banned in 2009. Herman Cain said, quote, ‘I don’t see that as torture.’ Michele Bachmann said that it’s, quote, ‘very effective.’ So I’m wondering if you think that they’re uninformed, out of touch, or irresponsible?” CNN’s White House correspondent Dan Lothian asked President Obama in Hawaii.

Whew. I’ll bet he was sweating bullets trying to come up with a fast and furious answer to that!

Yes, it will be difficult for our next moderators to surpass Scott Pelley’s pathetic failure as a moderator (or actually, in this instance, he was functioning as a debater, not a moderator, but still – as the LOLcats would say, UR doin it rong) but I suppose it could still be done.

Heh. That is just for my viewing pleasure.

Any suggestions for questions for our new moderator? Here’s what she has in the pipeline now:

If you are elected President, how would you expect to defend your record to the American people once you have pushed Granny from the cliff, starved the poor chillrun, and foreclosed on all the homes of hardworking, poor Americans for the benefit of your fat cat banker buddies?

But never fear, they will provide a fair and balanced Republican moderator as well.

Meghan McCain, daughter of John McCain, is a contributor to MSNBC.

Meggie Mac’s entry?

If you are elected President, how are you going to control the extreme right wing elements in Congress who want to women to die on the floor, take us to war against poor defenseless people everywhere and kill caribou and polar bears just so we can pollute the world with cheap oil?

And of course, after that Westminster Dog Debate Show, we will send our candidates over to Kos for their online debate. They’ve never yet considered the suggestion of a debate hosted by Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, Thomas Sowell and Bill Whittle, though that would draw conservatives from all over the world and actually give us some questions about the things we need to know to decide our candidate for this election.

Instead, we debate on these non-partisan Demedia networks and allow them to distort our debates with their silly talking points and distortions. We send our candidates onto their Sunday shows for interviews and allow them to drive the narrative in our primaries and in the general election. Why are we the stupid party again?

I was born in Saginaw, Michigan, and I grew up in a house on Saginaw Bay. My daddy was a poor, hardworking Saginaw fisherman. Too many times he came home with too little pay.

Naw, not really, but it sounds more interesting than the real bio, so there you are.

In the scientific community, more and more professionals are speaking out, resigning their memberships in professional societies, etc., over the abandonment of standards, judgement and outright fraud and unprofessional conduct within their ranks, especially in re ‘global warming’. Not so much in the journalism sphere. People like Dave Weigel, Eric Klein, et al, still get quoted and invited to all the parties, thus lowering the bar for people like Dan Lothian. There is no way Chelsea Clinton can fail. Her legacacy as a journalist was set in stone by NBC’s announcement that she is coming on board. The shame is… Read more »

I don’t view journalism as a real profession anymore. The rise of the internet with personal websites, blogs, etc. has shown that “untrained”, educated people can perform better than purported journalists on news gathering and reporting, and can generally be more trustworthy in what they write than “journalists”. The rise of celebrity journalists, such as Chelsea and numerous others, have diluted and made worthless any claims that being a journalist requires extensive training and education. By allowing such people to be treated as, referred to, and categorized as “real journalists”, journalists have cut their own throats (so to speak) on… Read more »
