A nasty narative week for MSNBC/Morning Joe

Yes­ter­day was not a good day for the MSNBC nar­ra­tive at Morn­ing Joe.

Joe Scar­bor­ough, out­num­bered around the table as usual, was the only one smil­ing as the Nar­ra­tive of “Romney/​GOP war on women” crum­bled before the new polls results from CBS/​NYT. That must have been enjoy­able for Joe but there are three new changes to con­ven­tional wis­dom that will not be so much fun for him:

1. ITEM: Sarah PALIN that’s who.

One week ago the Deb Fis­cher cam­paign was in tat­ters, one oppo­nent was endorsed by the GOP estab­lish­ment and the other by Jim DeMint a tea party favorite. On May 9th Sarah Palin endorsed her and her prospects sud­denly changed. And last night she won the GOP pri­mary with 41% of the vote and a 10,000 vote mar­gin:

A state sen­a­tor who had been stuck for weeks in third place in polls has won the GOP nom­i­na­tion for a U.S. Sen­ate seat from Nebraska, con­tin­u­ing a pat­tern of chal­lengers suc­cess­fully tak­ing on promi­nent Repub­li­cans in party primaries.

State Sen. Deb Fis­cher capped a remark­able surge by cap­tur­ing the Sen­ate nom­i­na­tion on Tues­day. She will face Demo­c­rat Bob Ker­rey, a for­mer Nebraska sen­a­tor and gov­er­nor, in the Novem­ber election.

I guess the “Sarah Palin is irrel­e­vant” nar­ra­tive is going to be a tough play on MSNBC today.

2. Item: Bro­ken nose, bro­ken narrative

That’s the title of this post at Legal Insur­rec­tion link­ing to the ABC report reveal­ing that George Zim­mer­man had a bro­ken nose, black eyes etc etc etc accord­ing to the med­ical report:

Jacob­son being a lawyer, he of course notes that this doesn’t PROVE that he didn’t act unlaw­fully but I seem to recall that the stan­dard of a trial works under some­thing called “inno­cent till proven guilty”

And if William Jacob­son scored the touch­down then Tom McGuire kicks the extra point via this WFTV9 report that Trayvon Mar­tin had “injuries on his knuck­les accord­ing to his autopsy despite what the mor­ti­cian had said:

Richard Kurtz, a black (IIRC) mor­ti­cian who serves the black com­mu­nity, had the good sense to see noth­ing unusual about Mar­tin when he pre­pared him for the funeral. Any­one who took that seri­ously is sur­prised by the cur­rent report. Since you ask, I expressed reser­va­tions about the mor­ti­cian at the end of this old post.

Now con­sid­er­ing the New Black Pan­thers involve­ment and the pres­sure from Sharp­ton etc I can see this guy Kurtz buck­ling under fear for his life or busi­ness but what is the excuse of Joe Scar­bor­ough who pushed the “We all know what’s going on” busi­ness or MSNBC’s Trayvon Mar­tin out­rage and Al Sharp­ton race bait­ing all over the place?

Worse of all there is NO WAY smil­ing Angela Corey the spe­cial pros­e­cu­tor didn’t know this info from the autopsy, yet she charged 2nd degree mur­der any­way! This explains why she didn’t dare go to a grand jury. With this evi­dence they would have been more likely to indict a ham sand­wich than George Zim­mer­man. All this per­son did was empower a lot of peo­ple who make their liv­ing on racial hate. In my opin­ion this woman should be dis­barred and she and the state sued.

3. Item: Who loves Rush? Women love Rush!

Remem­ber the boy­cott that the #sto­prush crowd pushed by Media Mat­ters, NOW and the MSM that was pushed over the “Slut” com­ment con­cern­ing activist San­dra Fluke? Well maybe the boy­cott has fiz­zled but the idea that Rush is “anti-​woman” card kept being played by the left.

While Morn­ing Joe & MSNBC kept sug­gest­ing GOP mem­bers should denounce Rush, Lim­baugh fresh off of amass­ing 100k+ Twit­ter fol­low­ers in 24 hours is back for another round form­ing a group called Rush Babes for Amer­ica on facebook.

Te num­bers it has pro­duced has not been friendly to the MSM asLim­baugh reports:

Our Rush Babes for Amer­ica Face­book page has over 62,000 female friends, almost two-​and-​a-​half times the total mem­ber­ship at the NOW gang Face­book page

Do you mean to say that in less than ten days a Rush Lim­baugh woman’s group is twice as pop­u­lar as NOW, no new­comer to face­book? I won­der how Media Mat­ters, NOW and MSNBC will spin that?

— — — — –

Exit ques­tion: Exactly how many memes that sim­ply aren’t true can be pushed by the MSNBC crowd before they change direc­tion?

Update:
Morn­ing Joe didn’t find these top­ics news­wor­thy but oth­ers are try­ing to spin for them:

This is stu­pid. If the Repub­li­can estab­lish­ment loses to a can­di­date backed by both Sarah Palin and Her­man Cain, of course the Tea Party wins. What else could explain it?

He is refer­ring to a story at The Hill, he has much more respect for Sarah Palin’s state­ment and Hot Air notes the polling in the gen­eral is look­ing good:

Aaron Blake at the Wash­ing­ton Post reports that Fis­cher already has a ten-​point lead in polling over Kerrey

But…But Palin is sup­posed to be toxic in a gen­eral election.

I’m hav­ing too much fun with this.

Yesterday was not a good day for the MSNBC narrative at Morning Joe.

Joe Scarborough, outnumbered around the table as usual, was the only one smiling as the Narrative of “Romney/GOP war on women” crumbled before the new polls results from CBS/NYT. That must have been enjoyable for Joe but there are three new changes to conventional wisdom that will not be so much fun for him:

1. ITEM: Sarah PALIN that’s who.

One week ago the Deb Fischer campaign was in tatters, one opponent was endorsed by the GOP establishment and the other by Jim DeMint a tea party favorite. On May 9th Sarah Palin endorsed her and her prospects suddenly changed. And last night she won the GOP primary with 41% of the vote and a 10,000 vote margin:

A state senator who had been stuck for weeks in third place in polls has won the GOP nomination for a U.S. Senate seat from Nebraska, continuing a pattern of challengers successfully taking on prominent Republicans in party primaries.

State Sen. Deb Fischer capped a remarkable surge by capturing the Senate nomination on Tuesday. She will face Democrat Bob Kerrey, a former Nebraska senator and governor, in the November election.

I guess the “Sarah Palin is irrelevant” narrative is going to be a tough play on MSNBC today.

2. Item: Broken nose, broken narrative

That’s the title of this post at Legal Insurrection linking to the ABC report revealing that George Zimmerman had a broken nose, black eyes etc etc etc according to the medical report:

video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo player

Jacobson being a lawyer, he of course notes that this doesn’t PROVE that he didn’t act unlawfully but I seem to recall that the standard of a trial works under something called “innocent till proven guilty”

And if William Jacobson scored the touchdown then Tom McGuire kicks the extra point via this WFTV9 report that Trayvon Martin had “injuries on his knuckles according to his autopsy despite what the mortician had said:

Richard Kurtz, a black (IIRC) mortician who serves the black community, had the good sense to see nothing unusual about Martin when he prepared him for the funeral. Anyone who took that seriously is surprised by the current report. Since you ask, I expressed reservations about the mortician at the end of this old post.

Now considering the New Black Panthers involvement and the pressure from Sharpton etc I can see this guy Kurtz buckling under fear for his life or business but what is the excuse of Joe Scarborough who pushed the “We all know what’s going on” business or MSNBC’s Trayvon Martin outrage and Al Sharpton race baiting all over the place?

Worse of all there is NO WAY smiling Angela Corey the special prosecutor didn’t know this info from the autopsy, yet she charged 2nd degree murder anyway! This explains why she didn’t dare go to a grand jury. With this evidence they would have been more likely to indict a ham sandwich than George Zimmerman. All this person did was empower a lot of people who make their living on racial hate. In my opinion this woman should be disbarred and she and the state sued.

3. Item: Who loves Rush? Women love Rush!

Remember the boycott that the #stoprush crowd pushed by Media Matters, NOW and the MSM that was pushed over the “Slut” comment concerning activist Sandra Fluke? Well maybe the boycott has fizzled but the idea that Rush is “anti-woman” card kept being played by the left.

While Morning Joe & MSNBC kept suggesting GOP members should denounce Rush, Limbaugh fresh off of amassing 100k+ Twitter followers in 24 hours is back for another round forming a group called Rush Babes for America on facebook.

Te numbers it has produced has not been friendly to the MSM asLimbaugh reports:

Our Rush Babes for America Facebook page has over 62,000 female friends, almost two-and-a-half times the total membership at the NOW gang Facebook page

Do you mean to say that in less than ten days a Rush Limbaugh woman’s group is twice as popular as NOW, no newcomer to facebook? I wonder how Media Matters, NOW and MSNBC will spin that?

————–

Exit question: Exactly how many memes that simply aren’t true can be pushed by the MSNBC crowd before they change direction?

Update:
Morning Joe didn’t find these topics newsworthy but others are trying to spin for them:

This is stupid. If the Republican establishment loses to a candidate backed by both Sarah Palin and Herman Cain, of course the Tea Party wins. What else could explain it?

He is referring to a story at The Hill, he has much more respect for Sarah Palin’s statement and Hot Air notes the polling in the general is looking good:

Aaron Blake at the Washington Post reports that Fischer already has a ten-point lead in polling over Kerrey

But…But Palin is supposed to be toxic in a general election.

I’m having too much fun with this.
