Rachel Maddow: The Right Needs to Answer for What’s Happened to Conservatism

“While discussing the success of Sarah Palin’s book Mike Murphy echoes David Brooks with his statement that “the noisiest parts of kind of the conservative media machine have far less influence than the mainstream media machine that covers the Republican world thinks they do”. Murphy needs to tell that to those sour-grapes Palin voters hitting those tea bag protests across the country. I also wonder if he thinks there’s a difference between the “conservative media machine” and Fox News?”

The Unauthorized 9.12 Teabagger Tour/Max Blumenthal

Max Blumenthal covers the 9.12 anti-Obama rally on the National Mall, where tens of thousands of teabaggers demonstrated their opposition to healthcare reform by calling Obama the biggest Nazi in the world, claiming he wants to put “real” Americans in concentration camps, and was born in Kenya. But how many of them have health insurance, and do they know they’re pawns in the game of healthcare industry front man Dick Armey? Of course not.

Tea Party Hate: A Month of Ignorance and Fear

The astounding suggestion by Joe Scarborough that the real victim of bigotry during this unbearable month of hatred was Joe Wilson after he was held responsible for his outrageous outburst, was too much for me to take. In response to the morning Joe crew’s utter and complete denial , I made this video. Keeping it ten minutes long was a near impossibility as a result of the amount of clips I wanted to include.

I certainly hope that this is impossible for any reasonably sane person to deny. Since that obviously doesn’t include the Tea Party and Town Hall participants, I hope you at least can see what an embarrassment to this country your behavior is.
