Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – sordid sampler edition

OK, folks – time to spin that airlock wheel and enter the iso chamber of horrors. Don’t worry – it won’t hurt – much.

First up -for whom the bell trolls!

Bob Woodward trolled us

Twitter exploded last night, after Bob Woodward revealed that White
House official had warned him he would “regret” saying Obama had moved
the goal posts on sequestration.

Predictably, conservatives
latched onto this, as it confirmed our suspicion about the Obama
Administration’s “Chicago-style” of politics. A lot of mainstream
journalists bought into this, too — reflexively believing anything the
great Bob Woodward says.


Of course, Woodward (who was expert at
trolling for publicity before the internet even existed), benefits
greatly from the publicity (nothing sells books like controversy).

To: Nachum; All

No, Woodward did not troll us.

What is being lost in all of this, is that Woodward got about a 30
minute earful from the White House, and that earful wasn’t whispered
sweet nothings, either.

And Lanny davis and Fournier have been on the receiving end, too.

Even after they just finish reading the rebuke, it still goes sailing right over their collective head.

I don’t think that it is the Chicago way, actually, I think it is Hillary’s revenge.

Watch all of those who are loyal to her line up against the Obamas.

Sour grapes Matt?

No. Just a sensible analysis of the facts.

When
I saw conservatives start to drool over Woodward, I suspected we were
being played.
He probably sold 10,000 books from people who wouldn’t
have considered it before his big “break” from the administration.

Colin Powell Slams ‘Idiot Presentations’ by Some Republicans, Urges GOP Leaders to ‘Speak Out’

Colin Powell Slams ‘Idiot Presentations’ by Some Republicans, Urges GOP Leaders to ‘Speak Out’

In
an interview with ABC’s Diane Sawyer and George Stephanopoulos during
ABC’s special inauguration day coverage this morning, former Secretary
of State Colin Powell lashed out at people in the Republican Party who
spent the last four years spreading “birther nonsense” and other “things
that demonize the president,” calling on GOP leaders to denounce such
talk — publicly.

“Republicans have to stop buying into things
that demonize the president. I mean, why aren’t Republican leaders
shouting out about all this birther nonsense and all these other things?
They should speak out. This is the kind of intolerance that I’ve been
talking about where these idiot presentations continue to be made and
you don’t see the senior leadership of the party say, ‘No, that’s
wrong.’ In fact, sometimes by not speaking out, they’re encouraging it.
And the base keeps buying the stuff.

“And it’s killing the base
of the party. I mean, 26 percent favorability rating for the party right
now. It ought to be telling them something.
So, instead of attacking me
or whoever speaks like I do, look in the mirror and realize, ‘How are
we going to win the next election?”

I understand your confusion. They’re so very hard to tell apart.
And – from the pot calling the kettle black department:

To: Sub-Driver

Colin Powell looked into himself and asked: “m I American or Black?”

He not only decided that question needed to be asked (it doesn’t) he
answered in the latter when he voted and now speacks 100% based on the
latter.

Shut up Colin, you damn racist.

Sarah Palin Out At Fox News Channel

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and Fox News Channel are parting ways,
according to a report in Real Clear Politics. After three years as a
paid contributor for the channel, FNC and the former Republican vice
presidential nominee have decided to cut ties.

A source close to Palin told Real Clear Politics that it was the governor’s decision not to renew their contract.

*”It’s
my understanding that Gov. Palin was offered a contract by FOX, and she
decided not to renew the arrangement,” the source close to Palin told
RCP. “She remains focused on broadening her message of common-sense
conservatism across the country and will be expanding her voice in the
national discussion.”

“Not surprised. Fox News is pretty much has become center-left.”

Conservatives with more than two active brain cells left FoxNews in 2007, when they swung to The Mulatto Messiah and the Left.

Are we talking about the same FOX news? And “Mulato Messiah”? Why not just call him an octaroon and be done with it?

Palin
is not going to be on the same panel as Dennis Kookcinich (a new Hire
at FN), and she sees what we all have seen in the State-Run-Media,
including FN.

She can be a leader in many ways but not a candidate.

press of ALASKA I have doubts about how you will fair (sic) in DC. (maybe as

Agreed. It is apparent to me that she has not invested
her time in becoming more informed. I wish her and her family well. She
is great as a cheerleader, and I mean that positively, but she does not
have gravitas. The media crucified Gingrich. I don’t see her overcoming them in a campaign.

I’m sorry but you are clueless!!! Sarah didn’t resign because of
the press, she resign because the democrats were trying to bankrupt her
by filling frivilous and fake ethical charges against her. She said that
the time to personally defend herself legally well over 20 charges and
more that were coming was taking a toll on the state business. The
Republicans there hated her and didn’t want to come to her aid either.
She sacrifice (sic) herself so that the State could move forward. You are
embarrassing

leaving

Herman Cain Joins Fox News

Well, Fox News needed to fill the void left by Sarah Palin’s absence
… so the network hired Herman Cain as a contributor, it announced
today. Cain, the former president and CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, will
also contribute to the Fox Business Network. He says he’s looking
forward to the job because it is “an opportunity to be one more voice
for intelligent thinking in America.” Fox has been shuffling its
contributor lineup since the election, also recently hiring Dennis
Kucinich and Scott Brown.

    But the Freepers. Living in a world where Woodward’s exposure of Watergate was a partisan hack. Where Faux News went for Obama in 2007.?????????????????
    Also I’ve never understood something from the moment that Rush came out with “half-rican”. Using census criteria, 1/2 black = black. And while I get that they want to avoid to appear to jump on Obama because he is black, what is the logic in using Mulatto / half-rican/etc. as if these were worse than being black?

    Love that cry of “Palin Unchained!”. Every time she quits or gets fired, the “Palin Unchained!” chorus starts up. Because now that she’s not a governor / VP / campaigner for President / Fox News pundit, she’s free to be a true leader! Or join Dancing With the Stars! Or … whatever!
