Average Voter

The voting populace does this

Liberal Media

Because liberal media does this

GOP

While conservative media does this.

And we’ve had just about enough of this on The Overnight Open Thread.

    Howard Do-tell a true liberal in the best sense of the word, who got sold out by his liberal friends for the “little monkey” innocuous comment he made in 1983 about Alvin Garrett of the Redskins. Cosell meant it affectionately.

    Don Cherry is in no way a liberal, and I resent him being used to represent such. Does Molson still pay him to do his coach’s corner on Monday nights? It’s been years since I lived close enough to get Hockey Night in Canada.

    @ Calo:

    Don Cherry only matters to Hockey fans. He coached the Boston Bruins during the 60′s and 70′s, and was probably the loudest and most outspoken coach in the 12 team NHL. He led the Bruins to the Cup, and retired afterwards. He’s been given 5 minutes on Molson Hockey Night in Canada, which he uses almost exclusively for America bashing, (not our culture, which he praises, but our Hockey players.) Those wild sports coats were things he wore, regularly.

    YES they do. He just got back from Afghanistan visiting the Canadian troops, and he’s no youngster. It’s not the first time he has done so either. He is a Canadian nationalist to the core and knows his hockey inside out. His late wife originally used to make his jacket iirc. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen him wear the same jacket twice. He loves to be in your face. EH

    Rachel Maddow Using Multiple Fake Twitter Accounts To Boost Mentions Of Show?

    Free Republic has a pretty interesting screen cap of a large number of Tweets from multiple accounts. Hmm.

    A poster on Twitter, upon seeing what he thought were very similar posts referencing MSNBC host Rachel Maddow’s show, did some searching and found out that Maddow has been using phony twitter accounts to boost her “mentions” on the popular website.

    As can be seen by screenshots collected by a tweeter named @LeftyBollocks, Maddow has massive amount of accounts posting the exact same claim that “Confession: I yell at my TV while watching Rachel #Maddow talk about filibuster reform in the same way most people do during football.”

    In high school, I was friends with a kid who was an exchange student from Australia. He managed to get himself deported from the U.S. basically because his favorite activities were drinking and then carrying out what ever moronic activity drunkenness flitted unfiltered through his alcohol addled brain. His stories about Australian rules football always had us in stitches. They all ended with the phrase, “so I kicked him in his wanker.”
