SCLM Watch

John Cole:

A Wide Range of Opinions

How are Obama’s policies playing at home and abroad? Well, lucky for you, David Gregory is going to tell us on Meet the Press, and to help him, he has two Republicans as guests.

I wonder what their thoughts will be.

*** Update ***

Even better. The two Republicans are Mike Murphy and Joe Scarborough. You can’t make this shit up. Liberal media.

On a more general note, TBogg:

It goes without saying that the Sunday Gasbag shows aren't about "journalism" so much as turning cocktail party bullshit into conventional wisdom gold.

JC's post is just that quoted bit, pretty much, unless you want to know what he thinks about the shape of Murphy's head. It's worth reading all of TBogg's, though: a rare not-kidding-at-all post.

[Added] On a related note, Willard "Mitt" Romney was invited onto "This Week" (George Stephanopoulos's yakfest) yesterday so that he could blame Obama for the Iranian election crisis. Seriously.

The good news, though, is that Stephanopoulos challenged him, hard, as any responsible journalist would do.

Yeah, that last was a joke.

(h/t: Oliver Willis)

[Added2] Turns out, the conspiracy may go even deeper than Willard knows.
