Have MSNBC on - They are consistently calling out McCain for hypocrisy (sarcasm)

Listening while working, and other than Andrea M mentioning there may be some controversy around his vote last night, there has been absolutely ZERO mention af McCain voting yes on a bill that he said he wouldn't vote for in his EPIC MAVERICK speech.

1. Just move forward, and forward... And see if people die

I just thought it would be good to move the process forward, and then well see what happens later on, McCain told BuzzFeed.

2. This shows the power of the media

 

He flat out fucking lied, no other way to put it, yet he is not called out on his lies.

You even see DUers believing he is a "maverick" and may do the right thing. Remember the time he called out that lady for saying Obama was a Muslim? Well I can find a dozen other instances during the 2008 election where he ignored racists statements from the crowd and hundreds where he allowed Sarah Palin to inflame crowds.

So he is not a grade A fucking asshole one time out of a hundred yet still somehow is seen as a straight shooter.

4. I'm not understanding.

Are you saying they ARE or ARE NOT talking about McCain's hypocrisy in voting yes on a bill that he said he wouldn't vote for in his speech?

8. Don't bother watching MSNBC during the day

Just at night. From
Day one of the network daytime swings a little to the right in some kind of attempt at "balance"
