Voters maybe don’t: Last night, at the start of his show, Lawrence O’Donnell was nice enough to show us the chimps at play.
He compiled a set of video clips. The chimps were attacking Mitt Romney:
O’DONNELL (3/12/12): We’ve got presidential campaign news with the Republican nomination turning into a complicated math problem. Willard M. Romney seems to think the solution is cheesy grits.The chimps have been leaping about in their cages, pleasuring you by making fun of a joking remark about grits.
ROMNEY: Mornin’, y’all. Good to be with you.
BASHIR: Willard has somehow managed to turn on the Southern charm.
JANSING: Eating grits, I think cheesy grits he called them.
ROMNEY: I’ve got to start this morning with a biscuit and some cheesy grits, I’ll tell you.
TODD: Cheesy grits. That seems a weird thing to say.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: It’s not cheesy grits, it’s cheese grits.
FINNEY: The pander fest that’s been coming out of his mouth has been pretty stunning.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: If you’re going to pander, at least get it right.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: It’s not flip-flopping. It’s pandering and there is a difference.
GIBBS: That kind of stuff doesn’t really go over well in the Deep South.
CAPEHART: It’s almost like as if we’re watching Romney on safari in his own country.
FINNEY: What he is, is not what the voters want.
As they did, two new polls showed Romney essentially tied with Obama. The Washington Post has Romney ahead. But who gives a shit about that? Did you know his real name is Willard?
Last week, we told you the chimps were making you fools with all their silly stupid-shit clowning. But this is truly all they know.
They don’t know how to create a serious politics. This is truly all they have. Nothing is being held back.
Get ready for (perhaps) a rough ride, although we aren't making predictions. Meanwhile, to watch last evening’s poo-fling, go ahead: you can Just click here.
Warning! Even though we love Chuck Todd, you are watching chimps at play. More and more, this is the scope of our corporate “liberal” channel.
