Notice there isn't an interview with O'Donnell on that site... hmm... fair and balanced!
He was interviewing someone that was local and currently in a position where is sounds like he did very well. What did you expect him to do? Call the guy a Liberal Douchebag and berate him for 13minutes? Regardless, it's a public cable access talk show, he doesn't have to be fair and balanced any more than Leno, Stewart, Letterman or any other talk show has to be. I'm pretty sure I remember Leno or some others having candidates on their shows that were ideologicaly different. It's a talk show, it's what they do. Personally, I would have had O'Donnell on for shear joy of showing how much of an idiot she is. And I have no idea if she or the other primary candidate were interviewed. It was painful enough sitting through 14 minutes of that drivel let alone more. Have at it.

I expect him not to lie.

 
He said he was going to vote for O'Donnell until this happened.
 
And yet... His facebook says he "likes" Coons...
 
 
You can promote anyone you want, but when you start lying about it, and then "forgetting" to air paid for ads... That is a problem.

Try being informed instead of just opinionated. How long before you admit that Obama was a mistake?

Oh lawl.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that her views were way too far to the right to appeal to a majority of Americans in her state. Delaware has a lot of independents, and idependents aren't normally big on ideologues.

We never did see if she weighs as much as a duck...

She never had a chance in Delaware. The polls all went to Coons from the get-go. Hoopla over the whole witch thing and her not liking masturbation got her a lot of attention, but really the numbers were never there. 

She was predicted to lose by 17. She lost by 16. I guess she made up that one point from angry women voters who read the Gawker story. 

Nate Silver's crazy baseball numbers machine is pretty damn good.

And I'll post this in this thread too, before the gloat and pelvis thrusting starts: 

Congratulations to all of the Republicans that won, and are now in charge of the House. Deep down in my soul, the fan of having different parties in charge of different things in government is smiling. 

I hope that bipartisanship and level-headed debate can win the hour.

I can think of another "R" word that suits her well.

Mike Castle (and the republican party for saying they wouldn't help O'Donnell) was the RINO...

hysterical.
 
Especially loved how Matthews lied about the "thrill" comment... Instant classic
 
 
 
 
 
And since we are speaking of biased reporting... Two Alaska news "producers" got the can from that voicemail where they were overhead planning "producing" a news event to harm Millers campaign.

And most political analysts wagered that the RINO that got defeated in the primaries by the RETARD, would have had a better chance of gaining another senate seat. Guess we'll never know now. Hope it was worth it.

Wow . . . the master of the "if they won't give the answer you want put the words you want in their mouth" reporting technique is quite impressive in action.

The whole message to Obama and the Democrats was clear, 'CHANGE' course. The 'Tea Party' aspect just reinforced the need for a multi party system, the two party option is dieing, and many times was just an option to evil #1 and evil#2, but in reality was just evil #3.
The media will now have to come up with a new mantra, as the Senate with reid in charge will now be the 'NO' block, but the Democrats in the Senate will never be named "The Party of NO".
America is centrists, and the political pendullum swung too far left, and the vote demanded a wing to the right, and that is what last night was all about. I think NY and California staying Democrat in the face of what the party and thier policies has done for the economic conditions of the state deserve what they got, and hope both go insolvant fast, and the rest of America lets those states rot on the vine. I remmember Jerry Brown in California in the 70's and what he did to the state, and 'Papa' Cuomo in NY and what hapened there, comman sense should have said no to either, anyone else would have been a better choice.

Fun fact, I am paying $2.79 for premium gas in Nebraska, and in NY was paying $3.03 for regular and $3.15 for premium. $.36 cents differance in NYS fuel taxes alone, who is actually gouging the consumer?

What I found most interesting was how the media and the republican party, were always preaching about how we need "moderate" members to run.
 
You know, guys like McCain who are good at the "working across the isle"...
 
 
Then two MAJOR races that had these types of republicans (Meg Whitman, Carly Fiorina)...
 
And how did they do?...  Meg spent over $150,000,000...
 
 
Good old moderates... Oh wait they lost... hmm... strange.

History, and politics, is cyclical.

The post-presidential election party shift is one of the more interesting things in American politics.

Did you guys hear about "non" biased ABC and their treatment of Breitbart?
 
Classic media bias in action. SILENCE THE OPPOSITION!
 
 
The shrieks from media matters clearly are very important to ABC  management... I smell a serious lawsuit, and payday for Breitbart... And when Mediaite covers it... and sides with the conservative, you know it is pretty astounding.
 
I'm sure whale will see nothing wrong with what ABC did...

My reaction to this when benji linked me yesterday: MEH.

I don't particularly care for the guy. Sometimes I will agree with him but never with his delivery. Dude comes off as a total knob most of the time.

It is his own fault here. His employer had clear rules about campaign donations and he chose to break them. Should have sought approval for the donations before he made them.

I'm not even sure I could feign interest in how FE will react to it. Head asplode probably, between OMG LIBERAL MEDIA OUTRAGE and joy over the suspension of someone I imagine he loathes vehemently.

From the fringe pile, was listening to Wilkow and he played a clip from ole 'Chuckey Shumer' demanding that the new House majority continue the 'Obama' agenda. Now there is a wait a minute moment. The new majority based on thier election promise can and will reject the 'Obama' agenda and demand compromises that the now minority Dems in the House, and Dem Senate will resist and lets see if the media pegs them now as 'The Party of No'. My bet is that the media will continue to call the GOP/Tea Party as "The Party of No' for not continuing the 'Obama' agenda that the people by their selection of the new majority also rejects to a point. The Dems just don't get it.

And by show of hands how many think Pelosi will get the minority leader post in the House, my bet is the remaining Dems will seperate themselves from her for any hope of a 2012 win, and she will be thrown under the bus, and the bus will be backed up and rolled foward repeatedly to ensure her political 'death'.
