    at least FNC is an effective Republican infomercial. MSNBC can't even get that right. they should absolutely "ban" them, whatever that means.

    Actually... it was picked up by a reddit thread (here)

    There wasn't any feined outrage. Actually there wasn't much of any outrage at all. People EXPECT this kind of behavior from trolls.

    And yes, the trolls that post this kind of vitriol are by in large right wingers.

    Obviously Pribus wants to keep Republicans away from MSNBC; they're a partisan organization that's going to ask tough questions. It doesn't take a genius to figure out that letting Tea Party Republicans speak off script destroys their electability. I mean, this is an MSNBC staffer tweeting a hypothetical question that's actually kind of fair. Contrast that with the "hypothetical" questions Fox News has asked on air about liberals.

    The modern GOP believes that America loves their policies, just as long as know one knows about them.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Have you read the GOP platform recently, or don't words taking over women's lives count.I like GOP women like Marsha Blackburn, until she opens her mouth .

    That's quite a quantum leap into a black hole of spin.
    Is calling a DEM a communist or a nazi like when you accuse us of calling you a racist, which I didn't btw ?
    One good turn deserves another.... You're a big boy, I'm sure you can handle it....Oh wait, I forgot, your a liberal progressive, they are only good at dishing it out. My bad.

    I have paid income taxes even when I was a bit poorer than now, but it appears we now try to exempt as many as possible form having to contribute in that manner...
    I don't often change my signature, but this was just too over the top to let anyone forget with what this country is up against...

    I haven't noticed that.
    I'm too busy fighting my own union over their lawsuit against the state of Illinois for trying to fix the pension system.

    Care to elucidate me ?
