There are more counterproductive talking heads than there are worthwhile ones so pointing out the idiots is an unending task. Here is all we need to know about Chuck Todd (R-NBC):
Concern troll, thy name is Chuck Todd:
NBC White House correspondent Chuck Todd admires comedian Stephen Colbert’s send-up of super-PACs. But he thinks Colbert, who has declared his candidacy for “President of the United States of South Carolina,” is going too far in injecting real-life politics into his own version of reality TV. [..]
“Look, he’s got a shtick,” Todd told a Winthrop University audience today. “I admire how he’s educated his audience on super-PACs. (But) I think he’s making a mockery of the system. Is it fair to the process?”
Todd also took a swipe at the media for playing along.
Making a mockery of the system? I think the media does that on its own just fine. Perhaps newly ordained A Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow PAC owner Jon Stewart should save some of that PAC money to put out some ads to rightfully call out the media for their rampant failures: the trumping of the horse race, the lack of fact checking, the callbacks to irrelevant players, the refusal to call out even the most obvious lies and the never-ending navel-gazing that every story is in fact all about the media and not for the edification of their viewers. Todd clutched his pearls some more:
“What is his real agenda here? Is it to educate the public about the dangers of money and politics, and what’s going on? Or is it simply to marginalize the Republican Party? I think if I were a Republican candidate I would be concerned about that.”
First off, which party is having contested primary races following the CU ruling? The republicans. So, who is available to compare to in the Stewart/Colbert send-up of the situation? It’s nothing personal, republicans, you are just in the wrong place at the wrong time (saying and doing wrong things, of course).
From now on, ignore Chuck Todd.
