NYT analysis: Victories rekindle GOP’s hope – The New York Times- msnbc.com
You’re kidding me right? You think because a state like VIRGINIA voted in a Republican Governor that this is supposed to be some sort of harbinger of things to come. That somehow the whole country is destined to be swallowed up by red tidal wave?
I don’t know whether to laugh, or snort.
I’m not certain if there’s a left media, or a right media in America. Some would argue that MSNBC represents left media. Some would argue Fox News represents right media. But, one thing that is becoming clearer, it’s all one big – moronic media. In this day of tabloid journalism and one up-mans-ship on the wow factor it’s understandable that our news conglomerates would want to create a story where there isn’t one.
I suppose the picture painted of darkening clouds on the horizon is supposed to create interest or a stir in a non-story, but it’s not working for me. Firstly, Governors races have little bearing on the national agenda. People in a particular state vote for their Governor – and get this – on State issues. Surprise moronic media. For Christs-sake – CALIFORNIA has a republican governor! It means little. Secondly, this represents nothing on the scale of the ‘republican revolution’ which gave us the likes of Newt Gingrich and others and their contract on America.
So, stop, please – stop. Trying to create a story out of nothing. Stop scoring the psycho violin music every time there’s a local referendum and try and transpose that on a national graph. Mary please.
I sure miss Tim Russert.
