Neil Cavuto went on Don Imus' Fox Business show this morning and defended Fox pundits' wildly incorrect predictions about the 2012 election, including Dick Morris'. Imus asked, "Why should I ever believe... anything Karl Rove or Dick Morris or Newt Gingrich or Laura Ingraham or any of those morons have to say?"
Cavuto said they should be judged on the "totality" of their careers and "by the way, we are all family."
From your link at Teh Blayz . . .
Despite the grim outlook, Beck, an entrepreneur who, like other business owners across the country will face substantial challenges in the next four years, still believes that path forward is to âdouble down.â
Well, that about sums it up.
Beck long ago admitted he was nothing more than a “rodeo clown,” and was quoted as saying, “if you take what I say as gospel, you’re an idiot.”
As the above makes clear, Beck and other rightwingnut noisemakers are the modern incarnation of hucksters selling elixir to the stupid — and getting rich from it.
And, in order to maintain that profit, he’ll have no choice but to “double down” — double down on the fear, double down on the smear, double down on the anger, double down on the stupidity.
To do otherwise would lose them their audience/livelihood — which is why I firmly believe Beck, Limpballs, Hannity, et. al., despite their public outrage, are secretly DELIGHTED President Obama was reelected: with no Obama in the White House, who else would they target for their smears, and on who else could they focus their sheeple’s anger towards?
Now, if you’ll excuse me, after taking that brief stroll on Teh Blayz, I feel the need to take a shower — at a decontamination facility . . .
TRANSLATION: we share a hive mind.
BTW, speaking of defending wildly wrong predictions, has anybody seen Glenn Beck lately? I’d love to hear his defense of this:
Sure, they work for a major media despot, Rupert Murdoch with his phone-hacking, police and political bribing tactics & strategy. Like Hitler’s gestapo , Murdoch’s minions are corrupt liars and racist cowards. That is The Totality of their careers.
- and "by the way, we are all family. -
Like The Mob.
