Rachel Maddow. My rant continues....

Last week when I caught a couple of her shows one of the things she ranted about was how devastating it would for Bernie to lose Massachusetts because it is a white, liberal state that borders with his state of Vermont.

I have heard that Rachel is a Rhodes scholar. I would think a Rhodes scholar would know that the Senator from NY's state also borders Mass. So if this is the case, wouldn't it be just as devastating for Hillary to lose Mass?


-------------------------------
And then there is this..... Rachel has been whining
http://www.politicususa.com/2016/02/28/respected-liberal-journalists-issue-important-warning-democrats.html

This article, fluff piece, piece of crap that was written by someone named rmuse, whose twitter page is nothing more than an attack on Bernie & the repugs, actually lumps Capehart & Maddow for their concerns. Of course! Capehart spews vitriol, what else would we expect...
But Rachel is still pointing fingers at Bernie supporters for the Dems lower turnout-
She said that “the rhetoric of a mass movement on the Democratic side and the lack of voter enthusiasm is not a good thing for the Democratic Party this year. In the case of Clinton v Sanders, this is probative (establishes proof of her point).”


Oh Rachel, this is a democracy and we have every right to want to change the way things are. When else other than a Presidential election will our voices be heard? Please stop pointing fingers at those of us that have had ENOUGH!



Count me in as someone that has had it with the propaganda of today's mainstream media.

1. We all know Hillary isn't from NY. She just grabbed that Senate post because it was available,

on her way to higher places.

than enough time for a savvy politician to make connections.

22. The "neighboring state" thing is mostly based on having higher name recognition than your opponent.

And it's a false premise if your opponent is named Hillary Clinton.

9. I used to like Rachel

 

Now I regard her as just another corporate sell out who will spew M$M talking points for the almighty dollar.

I hate the way she lectures and speaks down to her viewers as if they are incapable of forming their own opinions without her incredibly insightful guidance and input.

I'll never watch her again.

14. I hate the way she lectures, too.

Saying the same thing four or five times, merely changing a word or two, doesn't make it any more meaningful. I got it the first time. I guess she just needs to fill up her hour with words even if they're the same words over and over.

28. Like her? I used to love her.

 

When Rachel had a show on Air America Radio after the sElection 2000 and 9/11 I used to think it was a pipe dream that she would one day go mainstream. Her show used to air at like 5:00 AM or something like that but you could stream it any time. She kept me sane during that insane time. Now she has her own primetime show on a major network and I wish she would just go away. She is the last person on earth who I would've thought would sell out. But that's exactly what she did. I hope it was worth it.

16. You're right of course, but you have to understand the New Yorker mindset

I would think a Rhodes scholar would know that the Senator from NY's state also borders Mass.


I lived in NYC for years. When people found out I was from Vermont, half the time they didn't know where it was. Someone being a New Yorker (as in NYC) is different from being a New Yorker (as in NYS).

32. That's a ridiculous comment

She was making a political point for her chosen candidate.

She once did lived in Western Mass and that's pretty much equidistant from tthe Vermont and NY State borders.

19. As a New Yorker

 

We consider our borders to be tri- state. We're the NY-NJ-CT section of the country.

Mass and Vermont, Maine, Rhode Island, New Hampshire even parts of Northern Connecticut, we call that New England and it's really seen as a separate grouping.

Just saying...

30. I know you downstate folk think you own the bragging rights

but I grew up in Albany, you know the capital, and we were about a 30 minute drive from Massachusetts. My high school skied at Jiminy Peak every Friday night in the winter, my dad had season tix to the minor league team in Pittsfield when the Red Sox had the franchise. And if we're being totally ridiculous about neighboring state favored son/daughter isn't Iowa next to Illinois where Hillary spent her first 18 years?

31. Wow, that's kind of a terse response

 

Wasn't bragging about anything, I was just mentioning that in this area - the area the Clintons have called home for the past 16 years - we go by the nickname The Tri State Area. Further, around here, we call everything from around Norwalk and up "New England". But I notice now the group name, I'll leave you be.

Have a good evening.

21. The propaganda is truly overwhelming, some get lots more than others

Positive MSM bias in favor of rubio and clinton (for now). Negative MSM bias against Trump and Sanders. I don't need to support or oppose someone to see the unfairness or favor toward someone....

Rachel's head was so far up Clinton's arse she must have completely missed Iowa and New Hampshire! Now SC is what we measure election turnout by? I don't think so.

Shove off, Rach...you've sold your soul to the devil.

12% turnout - that's the yuuuuuge win! Like I said, if more did vote it probably would've been more votes for her.

27. I wrote a short OP about three weeks back saying she was a sellout, I was attacked by a lot of folks

Maddow is the worst. She should know better. The saddest thing, if Hillary had her way, Rachel would be considered a second class citizen and NOT have the ability to marry the person she loves.
