Far be it from me to tell NBC how to spend their money, but……….

….if they want to throw money around to find out why no one watches Meet the Press anymore, I am very affordable, certainly more affordable than any “consultant”.

The Washington Post reports that NBC hired a “psychological consultant” to interview David Gregory as part of a desperate effort to find out why ratings for Meet the Press have fallen to their lowest point ever — as in,since 1947.

As The Other McCain points out, the first problem is David Gregory himself. He is smug, and boring. The second problem is that shows like Meet the Press are dinosaurs, their time has passed. They are boring, stale, pretentious, and oh yeah, BORING! You want ratings? Hire someone interesting, and funny to host. No, not like Stephen Colbert, who is neither funny or interesting, I mean someone who actually makes people laugh but who can also make political points. Greg Gutfeld or Andrew Klavan come to mind.  Next have some guests that are not BORING and who do not come across as obnoxious and snobbish. In short make the show fun to watch. David Gregory? NOT FUN!

Finally, you need to remember that sex sells. Along with the funny, engaging host, try getting a co-host who is, how shall I put this, HOT! No, I do not mean a bimbo, I mean an intelligent woman whose smile and beautiful face just happens to make me stay tuned. There are MANY choices there. And it does not even matter what her politics are. It matters that she is HOT. If you ask me, right now your top choices there would Tamron Hall, Robin Meade, or Brooke Baldwin. I do not know their political leanings, but they are, smart, engaging, and oh yes, HOT!

My point is, make the show interesting rather than coma-inducing. NBC you have to be honest, who would you rather listen to, Gregory, who has the sense of humor of a clam, or Klavan or Gutfeld who are both very funny. See EASY choice there. Now, ask yourself who Americans want to look at, Gregory, who looks like a complete tool, sorry, he does, or one of these three? Yeah, I thought so

Is every Republican Pundit named David an idiot??

I only ask this question because David Frum, whom I despise, and David Brooks are both idiots. Brooks is the media’s favorite Republican, AKA  a useful idiot. He got the role of favored Republican because he goes on TV and says the things about Conservatives that the media wants to hear. Stacy McCain, who holds no respect for Brooks either, takes great pleasure in sharing this video clip of Brooks being verbally horse-whipped for being, well, a idiot!

Appearing on “Meet the Press,” David Brooks declared that intellectual strength commands support for the Gang of Eight bill:

“You know, I’ve seen a lot of intellectually weak cases in this town. I’ve rarely seen as intellectually a weak case is the case against the Senate immigration bill.”

And then Rep. Raul Labrador ripped Brooks to tatters:

OUCH! That will leave a mark

 

Political has been heart broken Congress did not pass gun control after Newtown

Ah Peggy Noonan, who continues to get air time even though she is well past relevant

On this weekend’s broadcast of NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Wall Street Journal op-ed columnist Peggy Noonan said Congress has betrayed the public trust after the Newtown, Conn. elementary school massacre.

“I think a big part of this story is that people don’t trust Congress,” Noonan said. “After Newtown, there was a great bubbling feeling of, my goodness, there must be at least some things we can do legislatively to make this whole gun situation better. If the Congress, if the Senate had moved quickly on discrete, small bills having to do with background checks — I mean quickly, in the weeks after Newtown … They failed to move quick and small.”

I wonder what “small” gun grabbing bills Noonan would ask for. She mentions background checks, which we already have. Maybe she thinks the feds should stick their nose into every private gun sale? Such a bill would hurt the law-abiding and do nothing to stop criminals.

Not to mention that Congress really should NOT “move fast”. Thomas Jefferson certainly would not be a fan of that. Bills passed quickly are antithetical to liberty and open government. Frankly bills ought to take a long time, so the people can know what is in them and have their say.

Why yes, Mr. President, there will be resistance

To the “you knew this was coming” gun grab effort by the Left, an effort that Stacy McCain notes Obama has vowed to put his weight behind

Never let a crisis go to waste:

Recalling the shooting of 20 first graders as the worst day of his presidency, President Barack Obama on Sunday pledged to put his “full weight” behind a legislative package next year aimed at containing gun violence.
In an interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Obama voiced skepticism about proposals to place armed guards at schools in the aftermath of the Dec. 14 deadly assault at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. . . .
Obama said he intended to press the issue with the public. . . .
“Will there be resistance? Absolutely there will be resistance,” he said.
“The question then becomes whether we are actually shook up enough by what happened here that it does not just become another one of these routine episodes where it gets a lot of attention for a couple of weeks and then it drifts away. It certainly won’t feel like that to me. This is something that – you know, that was the worst day of my presidency. And it’s not something that I want to see repeated.

Note that Obama discounted the idea of armed security in schools. That is no surprise, , Liberals have all ridiculed,  the suggestion of armed guards. Not because they do not think it will work, but because they want stricter gun laws. For them this is about getting legislation they want, and not about protecting kids.

 

Noted douchebag: Secession movement is RAAAAACIST!

Ken Burns, who massacred the facts in his documentary mockumentary The Civil War so badly a group of historians felt the need to write a book correcting the many errors is no historian. But, since he is a flaming Liberal, he gets airtime from the Liberal media. Weasel Zippers has Burns take on the recent secession movement

Via NRO:

Documentarian Ken Burns appeared as a panelist on Meet the Press this morning to discuss Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln. As the conversation veered to contemporary politics, Burns argued, in essence, that the secession movement we’re seeing in the wake of the election is spurred by racism. The basis for this claim, I believe, is the same as for the claims that opposition to a potential Susan Rice nomination is an indication of racism.

Good grief! In the first place this guy is a hack, he is not a historian.  And, as the clip shows, he is suffering from Racial Obsession Syndrome, RACE has everything to do with everything in his mind. And note how he is still parroting the lies about the “vitriol” that came from the Tea Party. That is a typical Liberal, just keep repeating the lies, even when they have been disproved.

Oh no! Deranged elderly man stalking President Obama

Well, not really, it is just Crazy Old Joe Biden!

On Sunday’s “Meet the Press” on NBC, Vice President Joe Biden put to rest any speculation that he wouldn’t be on the ticket  for the November election, but not without creating a little bit of controversy.

Biden first gave his thoughts on the being on the ticket instead of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, an alternative candidate some have suggested.

“There’s no question about it,” Biden said. “There’s no way out. I mean, they’ve already printed Obama-Biden. You are looking at a vice-presidential candidate for the United States of America.”

So, given that Biden is a lock, according to Biden anyway. Which possible VP candidate would you most like to see debate Old Hairplugs?

Ah, another Lefty playing the RAAAAACIST card!

When I first heard that MSNBS’s Rachel Maddow had called Stacy McCain a White Supremacist on Meet the Press, I had the natural reaction. I spit out the rib I was eating, and shouted out “how in the Hell did that moron ever get on Meet the Press?” I mean honestly, Meet the Press is supposed to be a respectable show, not a gathering place for hacks like Maddow.

My second reaction, AFTER pulling another rib off the slab, my dog, Tia, had already ingested the one I spit out, was to laugh. Here is another intellectual coward, playing the RAAAAACIST card rather than actually debating ideas. Maddow is no different than other Leftists afflicted with PBS (Perpetual Bitterness Syndrome). She cannot argue facts, or reason, or logic. She cannot refute Conservative ideology, so, she attacks the person that dares disagree with her.

The trouble for Maddow, besides her lack of talent, is that the only people stupid enough to buy the crap she is selling are Leftists like her. Everyone else rolls their eyes when she talks, and hits the channel up button on their remote. That is the problem with being an intellectual pinhead. Pretty soon everyone gets bored with your spiel, and just tunes you out.

So Rachel, keep flapping your gums, or shut up, or do whatever it is bitter douchebags like you do. It really does not matter to me, or to anyone else that matters.
