Rachel Maddow On Phony ACORN and “Climategate” “Scandals”


As Rachel Maddow says, these supposed “scandals” are complete “bull-pucky”, the “unmooring of politics from facts,” “the triumph of fake politics — outrage or advantage gleaned from stuff that’s not real.” Same thing with the Republicans’ supposed “outrage” over recess appointments (Bush did it and Republicans were fine with it then), the individual mandate (it’s a Republican idea), terrorism suspects being read their Miranda rights (again, they had no problem with this during the Bush administration), the stimulus (they admit it’s working great when they go back to their districts), etc., etc. Watch the video and get the long list of Republican “bull-pucky”; it would all be entertaining if it weren’t so damaging.
