    The Wisconsin primary made for a very long night for the
    talking heads of MSNBC.

    It was hilarious to watch that freak show of hosts twisting
    in the wind as the results became apparent.

    Poor Ed Schultz (the union shop steward) was reduced to
    a pathetic blob from from his usual status of slob.

    MSNBC should prepare for the November election now
    and order in crying towels, air sickness bags, BABY PACIFIERS
    and depends as they will need them.

  • MathMan

    Looks like a lot of people were interested in the WI recall election. What was forecast as a close race turned in to a rout with a winner predicted in less than an hour of polls closing.

  • Ratboy

    well Eddie made his million at 8 but his key demo was pretty low and no one went back to watch him at 11! Hannity JUST misses 3 million! And almost beat Matthews overall numbers with his lkey demo numbers! THAT is why they pay him the big bucks!

  • Fashioness

    The is the lowest numbers I have ever seen for HLN in the afternoon.. Monday at 5:00pm, it was doing 336and now Tuesday 118??? Jane Valez, Nancy Grace, Dr Drew and Showbiz tonight are way below what it once was.. They need another Casey Anthony like story..

  • UpAndOver

    WI Recall:

    UNIONS ‘0’
    Ed Shultz ‘0’

    Walker (R) Winner
    Barrett (D)
    Trivedi (I)

    Kleefish (R) Winner
    Mitchell (D)

  • Jim

    Poor Eddie looked shook last night,in a morbid kind away

  • Laurence Gl;avin

    Businessinsider.com published findings by the Federal Reserve branches around the country. Various economic indicators are movering forward in just about all districts. This publication is called the “Beige Book” due to the color of the cover of these reports. Since the findings are somewhat pro-Obama, it’s unlikely that the Fox Right-Wing Propaganda Network will report on this, although their viewership is almost entirely beige.

  • REM

    Ed’s numbers were up because people tuned in to see him blow a gasket

    Ed how did those absentee ballots work out for ya

    where are all the libs on this site……crickets

    Romney wins in a landslide

    Tea party is the silent majority

  • Ralph Hahn

    The Wisconsin recall election was a pretty big story because it is definitely a bellweather moment in the upcoming Presidential election. But
    Mr. & Mrs. Alphabet News Only did NOT go running to CNN, that’s for sure.

    I was disappointed at the lack of coverage of New Jersey’s Primary election.
    There was a contest in the U.S. Senate GOP race. I’m happy that my friend Joe Kyrillos was the victor. It may have been mentioned earlier since I didn’t arrive home until shortly after 11:00pm.

  • Ralph Hahn

    *Laurence Gl;avin: >>> …it’s unlikely that the Fox Right-Wing Propaganda Network will report on this, although their viewership is almost entirely beige. <<<

    What a racist thing to say!

    And, ANY blogger addresses you left-nut wingers post are pro-Obama, pro-Liberal.

    There were libs who outright LIED when they said that FNC did not cover the British tabloid scandal. Fox News had better coverage than all even though both FNC and the tabloid in question were owned by Fox Chairman Rupert Murdoch.

    But, I don't believe ANYONE here who cites a biased blogger to back up their partisan posts.

  • Tired of Idiotic Comments

    Fox News Special Rpt. with Bret Baier at 11:00 had an interview with the Governor of Maryland. This Governor is a total whack job. He was given the opportunity to give his analysis of the Wis. election, but instead chose only to slander Gov. Walker, not once but twice. You could see the look of anguish on Bret Baier’s face when this nut case, rather than be gracious, chose to call Gov. Walker an uncharged criminal unlike three members of his administration. Bret Baier then asked him another question, and this Gov., again called Gov. Walker a criminal who will be going to jail soon. How do the citizens of Maryland feel about their governor?

  • Steve Perry

    I have to agree…President Obama was the biggest winner last night.

    2012 Wisconsin Recall voters
    Obama – 53%
    Romney – 42%


  • Joey

    Ed Schultz went to C section since the kittens can’t come out on a normal way..but not before he retouched his peroxide head

  • DB

    Exit polls biased. The Wisconsin exit polls said the election would be close-said 50-50. Obviously the real numbers were 53-46. Exit polls showed Obama up over Romney by about 7 points, actually more like 48-48 according to exit poll expert. Sorry Stevie.

  • club

    If it was a basketball game MessNBC got beat 100 – 33,,,,, CNN got beat 100 – 29… great night for THE LOSERS AND THEIR FOLOWERS….

  • DB

    Mathew, you gonna jump on Lawrence? I hope you understand that while I disagree with you on this topic and of course some others, I do respect how you make your arguments and the fact you respond to disagreement without name calling. I don’t care for racism either but did not think Joan needed to be called out for something she said along time ago and apologized for. You are my favorite liberal, now go get Lawrence!! :-)

  • Jeff

    Wow db, a decent post for a change.
    So proud of you!!

    Broken Record: Once Again, Fox Analyst Claims Iran Is On The Verge Of Getting Nukes

    Fox News national security analyst KT McFarland has again claimed that Iran is on the verge of having nuclear weapons, despite the fact that there are significant questions as to whether Iran is planning to build nuclear weapons at all.

    During an appearance on Fox’s “straight news” program America’s Newsroom, McFarland told co-host Bill Hemmer that “Iran is an expansionist country on the verge of getting nuclear weapons.”

  • DB

    Obama does nothing to recognize D-day anniversary ( second year in a row). I understand though he is doing the people’s work– fund raising.

  • Steve Perry

    @DB –
    “Exit polls biased. The Wisconsin exit polls said the election would be close-said 50-50. Obviously the real numbers were 53-46. Exit polls showed Obama up over Romney by about 7 points, actually more like 48-48 according to exit poll expert. Sorry Stevie”

    Actually, the first round of exit polling from CNN was at 50-50, the 2nd round of polling only minutes late showed a 52% to 48%…which is pretty close to the 53% to 46% final tally.

    Also, if you want to go with the 7pt margin figure for Obama over Romney then those numbers are not from CNN exit polling. That 7pt lead figure is coming from the Edison Research polling that was posted on the Christian Science Monitor website and NOT the CNN exit poll….so get your facts straight. Even Fox News is showing the 7 pt lead for Obama over Romney.


  • Jeff

    @ratboy. I see NO racist comment being posted… What the???

    Also your pervious post on Clinton tax cuts interview are pure spin and straight out of the Republican talking points bag of bile.

    PRES. BILL CLINTON: Well, I think what it means is they will have extend– they will probably have to put everything off until early next year. That’s probably the best thing to do right now. But the Republicans don’t want to do that unless he agrees to extend the tax cuts permanently, including for upper income people.

    And I don’t think the president should do that. That’s going to– that’s what they’re fighting about. I don’t have any problem with extending all of it now, including the current spending level. They’re still pretty low, the government spending levels. But I think they look high because there’s a recession…..

    Temporary extension is NOTHING to celebrate when your party number 1 wants em permanent and number two cut for the wealthy. Sen. Orin Hatch got it right somehow the spin you bought into cherry picked and are misrepresenting the former President.
