MSNBS head furious over Megyn Kelly’s hotness, demands investigation!

I was really enjoying owning noted race pimp @rolandmartin when I ran across this at The Daily Caller.

MSNBC president Phil Griffin suggested journalists should investigate how the ratings for Megyn Kelly’s new 9 p.m. show on Fox News shot up on its second night after debuting behind MSNBC.

When Kelly’s new show debuted Monday on Fox News, her competitor Rachel Maddow held her own in the ratings, and even topped Kelly in the key 25-54 demographic, according to Nielsen Media Research. But on Tuesday night, it wasn’t even close with Fox News dominating the rest of cable news.

Griffin complained about the jump in an interview Friday with TVNewser’s Alex Weprin.

“Monday we had a really good day in the key demographic, on the night that Fox News debuted their three shows, we either tied or beat them in those hours,” Griffin said. “Tuesday — you guys should be doing some investigations — I have never seen it in all my years of cable, same overnight, same everything, and they doubled their ratings in a day? It is impossible.”

Allow me to explain something to Phil Griffin. First thing is this Phil. MSNBS sucks, and has been getting its tail kicked by Fox in the ratings for a long time now. Second Phil, lots of men consider Megyn Kelly hot, while Rachel Maddow is, well, how should I put this delicately? She is Chris Hayes more masculine sister. Third Phil, and this is the most important thing. Megyn Kelly is smart, tough, and entertaining. Maddow? Well she is the opposite of those three things. Also Phil, there is another possible explanation. Maybe Maddow’s audience was out buying more aluminium foil, those hats are not going to make themselves now are they Phil? Or, maybe Maddow’s audience was online trying to enroll in Obamacare? Lord knows that is not going too well. Lastly Phil, the most likely explanation is that you are a whiny little man who refuses to accept that your network, and I use that term loosely, is simply unwatchable. Face it Phil, the only thing MSNBS has going for it is the lovely Tamron Hall, who I have a shameless crush on, even if she is a Liberal

Here is an idea Phil, hire a genuine Conservative or two, no Phil not Morning Joe, or Michael Steele I said a genuine Conservative, and give them a show. You will see better ratings Phil trust me. See Phil, you are targeting and audience that is not very big. Face it Phil how many Moonbats are there, so your base audience is not great. You need to expand to appeal Phil, targeting malcontents is a recipe for failure. Tamron Hall

Oh, one more thing Phil, this advice is free, but, if you want to show some thanks, tell Tamron Hall to call me, just sayin’ Phil.

526K Farms Threatened By Tax, Where’s Streep?

– Sweetness & Light

From the Washington Examiner:

526,421 family farms threatened by new death tax

By Paul Bedard | December 11, 2012

New legislation that jumps the death tax to 55 percent of estates exceeding $1 million threatens 526,421 family farms, or about 25 percent of all farms in America, according to a Senate analysis.

According to the analysis from the Senate Republican Policy Committee, chaired by Wyoming’s John Barrasso:

If President Obama and Senate Democrats do not act, the federal government will begin taking more than half the value of family farm estates exceeding $1 million beginning next year. This summer, Majority Leader Harry Reid and Senate Democrats passed legislation (S.3412) on a party-line vote that allows Washington to take up to 55 percent, a huge increase over today’s top rate of 35 percent, and drop the tax’s exemption from $5.1 million to $1 million. The lower exemption – combined with soaring farm real estate values – could put more than 420,000 additional farm estates at risk from the death tax.

Farm values are largely tied up in non-liquid assets like land, buildings, and livestock. Many farm and ranch families would be forced to sell their assets to satisfy Washington Democrats’ insatiable appetite for tax money. Up to 24 percent of America’s farm and ranch families could be forced to hand over a large chunk of their heritage to the Internal Revenue Service when a family member dies. This would economically devastate rural communities. The President and Senate Democrats should join Republicans in rejecting this irresponsible policy.

Quick! Call Meryl Streep! Call Sissy Spacek! Call Jessica Lange! They are famous for their deep concern over families losing their farms.

And speaking of economic experts, we have this from Politico:

180 economists oppose tax hike

By KATIE GLUECK | December 11, 2012

A letter signed by 180 economists opposed to tax increases as part of a fiscal cliff deal will be delivered to Congress on Wednesday, according to a national anti-tax group.

The letter argues that hiking tax rates would have a “significant, negative impact on the economy” and is slated to be sent to Capitol Hill on Wednesday, said Pete Sepp, executive vice president of the National Taxpayers Union, the low-taxes advocacy group that coordinated the effort.

“This was organized… in order to provide some perspective that’s often overlooked in Washington amid hotly contested and hotly political negotiations: the fact that the economic policy community has a contribution to make here,” Sepp told POLITICO. “We hope that members of Congress will take a step back to read this statement and understand there’s much more at stake here than just some political fortunes. There are genuine policy questions that need to be resolved and resolved properly.”

The letter’s signatories include Douglas Holtz-Eakin, who directed the Congressional Budget Office under President George W. Bush, and Jim Miller, who directed the Office of Management and Budget under President Ronald Reagan.

“Increasing taxes would likely slow or reverse our nation’s fragile economic recovery and undermine long-term growth,” the letter reads in part. “Restraining the growth of expenditures, however, would help stabilize the government’s fiscal imbalance and create a more conducive environment for robust expansion.”…

Notice that even these economists can’t bring themselves to call for spending cuts. They only call for “restraining the growth of expenditures.”

Still, if there aren’t any movie stars on that list, why bother? Who cares what non-celebrities think?
