Rachel Maddow vs. Dick Armey
MSNBC trumpeted this weekend's episode of Meet the Press because Rachel Maddow and Tom Daschile would be squaring off against Repugnicans Tom Coburn and has-been, fat fuck Dick Armey.
First, I'm sure Tim Russert is spinning in his grave at the thought of weakling David Gregory moderating any episode of MTP, especially this one.
But after trying my best to listen to Dick Armey's convoluted jibberjabber and Coburn's Okie horseshit, I have to say I loathe Armey as much as I loathe Dick Cheney, and Republican dicks in general.
What a condescending, finger wagging piece of shit.
Maddow's reports of Armey's non profit group being behind disrupted townhall meetings caused him to be fired from his regular job as a legislative mouthpiece for some bigshot firm. The details don't matter- she got him canned and that's why I was licking my lips at the prospect of them squaring off on Meet the Press.
But David Gregory was unable to keep things on track, unable to prevent the Republicans from filibustering based on bullshit, and unwilling to man-up and take charge of the show by insisting his questions be answered.
When Maddow was allowed to talk uninterrupted, Dick Armey would mug for the camera and fiddle with his fingers like she was lecturing a 4-year-old on quantum physics.
Though I love the idea of a Ph.D. lesbian taking on a Dick Armey, Gregory's benign moderation made sure she was denied the courtesy of speaking without being spoken over by the two special-interest owned Republican assholes on the panel.
Next time I hope they pit Keith Olbermann against Republican liars like these. He'd never be as polite and patient as Dr. Maddow.
Fuck Dick Armey.
And that mealy mouthed wimp David Gregory.
