Video: Beck-Malkin Slap Fight!

Politics • Views: 1,483

Michelle Malkin and Glenn Beck have a right wing slap fight over Beck’s decision to have wacko Democrat apostate Eric Massa on his show, and it gets pretty nasty.

This is what happens when your entire ideology is based on crazy hatred. People like Glenn Beck aren’t making rational decisions — they’re seizing on whatever comes up to make the “other side” look bad, and in the process beclowning themselves.

(Hat tip: Killgore.)

And here’s a good post by Bob Lonsberry on Eric Massa’s cynical shell game.

Eric Massa is a snake.

But he is a brilliant snake.

And in one of the most audacious p.r. moves ever, he has conned Limbaugh, Drudge and Beck – and untold millions of Americans. From a little radio studio beside a swamp, with the help of a couple of deluded backwoods yokels, he has made himself a national star.

It is astounding.

And proof that in American politics, it’s not how big your lie is, it’s how loud you can yell.

And so it is that Eric Massa, who fled the Congress out of fear of what Ethics Committee investigators would find out about him, has wrapped himself in the robes of a patriot martyr.

A guy who – until yesterday – belonged to the House Progressive Caucus has, with one nicely disseminated rant, transformed himself into a conservative darling. Limbaugh and Beck have trumpeted him, and Beck has promised him an entire hour of national television tonight. Massa opposed Obamacare because it wasn’t liberal enough – because it didn’t entirely nationalize health care with a single-payer system – and Beck is about to crown him queen of the tea party.

It is a media move of astounding proportion. It takes spin to a whole new level.

And it shows Massa to be a genius.

And, if anybody’s paying attention, a liar.

But, nobody is paying attention, and his con is working.

(Hat tip: avanti.)
