Ω Meaningless "Victories": Whoops, Soledad. Your Biased Stupidity Is Showing. | Chicks on the Right

|

The right wing blogosphere has been whipped into a frenzy because Soledad O’Brien used Talking Points Memo, a far-left blog, as a source during her interview with Barbara Comstock.

O’Brien’s obvious bias has always been clear as she campaigns for President Obama, and she does a good job of pounding the Dem’s message home for them in her interview. And if there’s anybody who appears flustered, it’s Comstock. She hardly gets a complete statement in and could take a lesson from the unflappable Condoleezza Rice. O’Brien, biased or not, is actually prepared for Comstock’s response and only appears to be searching through her material to locate the exact quote she requires.

So she found the quote on TPM; it’s a non-issue. TPM actually links to a Slate article which sources the original quote to the HuffPo-where Wyden published his piece in the first place. I.e., HuffPo is the barn in which the horse (or ass?) spoke. Which liberal media outlet would you rather she quote?

Comstock would have been much better off sticking with the “Is there a question in there?” line. “I thought this was to be an interview, not a campaign stop for President Obama,” would have been a much better response.

At any rate, this kind of video is the kind that makes me sick because we conservatives look like idiots for rallying around a hollow, meaningless non-victory, instead of having real victories to promote. What we need is superior firepower (think Rice) based on sound facts, not contrived campaign rhetoric. The R&R campaign should never have attempted to make more of Wyden’s policy statement than there was to make in the first place. Yeah, they should say that the Medicare aspects of Ryan’s budget were, in fact, derived from a liberal Democrat’s policy statement. But to imply that it was co-sponsored? Sigh…

I am a staunch conservative, but this is a meaningless rallying point.
