Trying to keep this site from becoming RomneyPwnage.com… (here it comes) but… if you have not seen Mitt’s Romney/Ryan chant, enjoy someone who can’t handle his partner getting some praise, however if you have be sure to catch Joe Scarborough’s reaction to the clip. Unlike many videos you see here Joe is not attacking an opponent. Joe is a former two term Florida Republican Congressman. He’s behind the GOP but “The Chant” is too much for him to take. Mika Brzezinski gives a sincere apology amid the panel’s uncomfortable glances that’s lacking any signs of a staged response. Dropping pretenses she just feels bad for her friend who’s clearly in despair and looking for spiritual assistance. It’s what television, and this site, were made for.
Piers Morgan, who typically supports politicians like Obama, calls out Davis Guggenheim, a relatively well-known documentary producer (“An Inconvenient Truth”) for basically being paid to create a pro-Obama propaganda piece over an actual documentary where the user is typically given both sides of the story and presumably enough information to make up their mind on the subject at hand.
Much of the interview consists of Morgan trying to give Guggenheim an out to show he’s not a complete shill for Obama, but Guggenheim just ain’t biting. Over and over Guggenheim states the only problem w/ Obama was that he did “too many” good things and he wasn’t able to fit them all into the movie. Finally, Morgan tires of Guggenheim’s shilling and says he’s not impartial enough given his admission he believes that Obama has done no wrong; Guggenheim sheepishly agrees.
While there may no ranting or raving, the pwnage still shines crystal clear.
After hearing Romney’s gaffe about airplane windows I originally thought it was an insignificant slip of the tongue. Seeing as Mitt has been a regular here lately I figured it wasn’t worth finding something to post. Then I found out that Mitt was really telling people that he didn’t understand why you can’t roll down airplane windows. And then I found out he was actually talking about rolling them down while in the air. One search on YouTube later and I found this gem of a family trying to do their part to help educate America. Hilarity ensues. Congrats Elijah. You just pwned the Republican Nominee. 🙂
Thanks to The Young Turks who have been providing great political coverage now since 2005. It’s surprising this is their first video to make it to this space. It starts with Chris Matthews calling out Reince Priebus (RNC Chair) for his party’s questionable “birther” and racially based tactics. Brokaw comes to their defence. Cenk Uygur then provides a spot on analysis of Bill Maher’s response to the exchange detailing the complicity between the mainstream media, the government and how neutrality is their given excuse for collusion in mus-informing the public.
We expected The Daily Show to be on fire this political cycle but recent events in the US Presidential Race have exceeded our expectations. In obvious damage control mode Rupert Murdoch, FOX News, their anchors, correspondents, pundits and probably some camera men too began to show a desperation rarely seen. Then the contradictions and double standards start flying towards the Comedy Network as joke fodder. I’m beginning to think Jon Stewart might have the easiest job in America.
