More BULLSHIT False Equivalency. . .

I do like Chris Hayes very much, but he just had Steve Schmidt, Republican Strategist, on. . . While Schmidt rightly excoriated Pussy Grabber and the rest of the Repigs, he DID say that 'both parties have become extremist, leaving the American people in the middle.'

That's patent and unadulterated bullshit. I think Chris Hayes just let it go, as Schmidt was rightly tearing the Repigs a sparkly, new asshole. . .

1. We can like Schmidt as much as we want, but he is still a Repug, make no mistake. nt

2. The Dems just look extremist because

The GOP is so far off scale to the right.

3. This is the kind of statement that Joy Reid and Stephanie Ruhle would be quick to pounce on.

They are great at recognizing BS and calling it out, without dismissing legitimate other points the speaker may have made.

5. Yes to this.

Sometimes I can't even figure out if Chris is to the left given all that he just lets drift on by.

6. I get the sense that he is just less good at seeing things quickly than Joy and Stephanie are, and

he may be less comfortable in conflict situations...at least while the cameras are rolling. It's not easy to do.

4. Chris Hayes

often backs off, leaving a dubious or completely untrue statement unchallenged.

I like him but I often wish he had a stronger backbone.
