...Ace of Spades gets his answer in dollars & cents

I noted today, as has Stacy McCain that true believ­ers in Barack Obama are alive and well.

In so not­ing how­ever he repeats a ques­tion raised by Ace of Spades on the subject

And the Lib­eral Chat­ter­ing Classes are fac­ing a ques­tion now: “Will my rep­u­ta­tion and sense of pride sur­vive Obama’s incompetence?”

And: “How absurd am I will­ing to make myself in order to cover up for this arro­gant buffoon’s incompetence?”

The ques­tion has been answered by News­busters: or should I say they quoted Real Clear Pol­i­tics answer

MSNBC blazed its own path, encour­ag­ing Chris Matthews to chan­nel his inner advo­cate and hir­ing peo­ple such as Keith Olber­mann, Rachel Mad­dow, Mar­tin Bashir, even Al Sharp­ton. Not unin­tel­li­gent peo­ple, cer­tainly, but not reporters, either — and in some cases, not jour­nal­ists at all. Mean­while, except for the suc­cess­ful “Morn­ing Joe” pro­gram, MSNBC dropped its token con­ser­v­a­tive voices and for the most part eschewed orig­i­nal report­ing in lieu of talk­ing heads.

The upshot has been uneven. More money for MSNBC, as it slipped by CNN in the rat­ings, but more con­tro­versy, too.

The key line is that screed is “more money for MSNBC” and this shouldn’t sur­prise any­one par­tic­u­larly not Stacy McCain:

But this false accu­sa­tion — the Duke play­ers did not have sex with the strip­pers, much less hold them down and f – k them against their will — is not enough to dis­credit Amanda Mar­cotte in the eyes of those who share her world­view. This is how the Ide­ol­ogy of Error oper­ates: As long as one speaks, writes and behaves in accor­dance with the ide­ol­ogy, any result­ing errors are writ­ten off as if they never happened.

Amanda Mar­cotte can be absurdly wrong and crudely offen­sive and yet still be end­lessly applauded by her fel­low left­ists. This hate-​filled lying fanatic is a val­ued con­trib­u­tor at Slate and a wel­come guest at MSNBC not despite her fanati­cism, but because of her fanaticism.

Given that that MSNBC is more prof­itable now than it was before it decided to go full bore as an affir­ma­tion machine for the peo­ple prop­ping Obama up, I’m afraid the answer to Ace’s ques­tion: “How absurd am I will­ing to make myself in order to cover up for this arro­gant buffoon’s incom­pe­tence?” is appar­ently “pretty damn absurd.

I noted today, as has Stacy McCain that true believers in Barack Obama are alive and well.

In so noting however he repeats a question raised by Ace of Spades on the subject

And the Liberal Chattering Classes are facing a question now: “Will my reputation and sense of pride survive Obama’s incompetence?”

And: “How absurd am I willing to make myself in order to cover up for this arrogant buffoon’s incompetence?”

The question  has been answered by Newsbusters: or should I say they quoted Real Clear Politics answer

MSNBC blazed its own path, encouraging Chris Matthews to channel his inner advocate and hiring people such as Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow, Martin Bashir, even Al Sharpton. Not unintelligent people, certainly, but not reporters, either — and in some cases, not journalists at all. Meanwhile, except for the successful “Morning Joe” program, MSNBC dropped its token conservative voices and for the most part eschewed original reporting in lieu of talking heads.

The upshot has been uneven. More money for MSNBC, as it slipped by CNN in the ratings, but more controversy, too.

The key line is that screed is “more money for MSNBC” and this shouldn’t surprise anyone particularly not Stacy McCain:

But this false accusation — the Duke players did not have sex with the strippers, much less hold them down and f–k them against their will — is not enough to discredit Amanda Marcotte in the eyes of those who share her worldview. This is how the Ideology of Error operates: As long as one speaks, writes and behaves in accordance with the ideology, any resulting errors are written off as if they never happened.

Amanda Marcotte can be absurdly wrong and crudely offensive and yet still be endlessly applauded by her fellow leftists. This hate-filled lying fanatic is a valued contributor at Slate and a welcome guest at MSNBC not despite her fanaticism, but because of her fanaticism.

Given that  that MSNBC is more profitable now than it was before it decided to go full bore as an  affirmation machine for the people propping Obama up, I’m afraid the answer to Ace’s question: “How absurd am I willing to make myself in order to cover up for this arrogant buffoon’s incompetence?” is apparently “pretty damn absurd.
