Chris Matthews on Hardball talking about what happens if Blacks don't show up and the Dems lose

control of the Senate. Chris Matthews has been knocking the President for the past year and playing into the Rights' claims and criticisms against the President about the ACA website crapola, and that he's aloof, and stories about Reagan and Tip and how they were able to sit down for a drink in the evenings, as if this Congress is the Congress when Tip O'Neil was the Speaker of the House. If the Dems lose everything Nov 4, it will be their fault that they never learned to play HARDBALL like the GOP. The Dems never learned how to stick with one coherent message (even if you're wrong) the way the Rigthwingnut machine knows how to do. As the saying goes, if you repeat a lie enough times it becomes the truth. As someone mentioned here a few days ago, a couple of years ago, the GOP was on life support. But their constant running around screaming that the house was on fire while doing nothing concrete to shore up or reinforce the house, will return them to the leadership of both houses of Congress on Tuesday and the Dems will have no one to blame but themselves.

Someone needs to explain to Sarah Palin the definition of "Humiliation" and "Humility"

"It's rare for Sarah Palin to admit embarrassment, but she said on Thursday her family's drunken brawl in Alaska was downright humiliating.

The former GOP vice presidential nominee took to Facebook to finally address her family's involvement in a bloody, booze-fueled brawl that took place last month in Anchorage.

"What happened on the night in question wasn’t funny. It was humiliating and frightening," Palin wrote in her post. "My kids aren’t proud of what happened, nor are they seeking sympathy by playing the victim card – that’s why they haven’t commented on this for all these weeks." ..."

She then proceeds to show anything but "humility" while painting her family as "victims" in her ranting on Facebook, and then she links to daughter Bristol's rantings where the latter paints herself and her family as "humility-less" victims as well. They both also throw in a cheap shot at the Clintons in the process, and finish off their typical victimdom rantings with their usual shot taken at the 'lame stream media' for being so unfair to their family.

Note to Sarah and Bristol and the rest of your shameless family. If you really wanted to show that your family was humiliated and embarrassed by what happened in that street brawl a month ago, you would have issued a statement, preferably a month ago, in which you simply stated:

"My family and I are humiliated and embarrassed by what happened last night at a party. We all did a little too much celebrating and as a result, things got out of control. Signed, Sarah Palin. THE END.
