According to Ben Smith of the Politico, McCaskill is downright nasty, and not the sexy kind. In his latest blog post, Ben Smith explains:
I mentioned a few days ago that Claire McCaskill’s mild affect masks a bit of a killer, and perhaps the Obama campaign’s deftest surrogate on the attack.
But I was still kind of amused by her brief interaction with Mitt Romney in the press file just now.
McCaskill was stepping out of her chair at the end of an MSNBC interview, and Romney was up next. She and a staffer unplugged her various wires, and she handed Romney the earpiece the guests use to hear the host.
“I spit on this before I put it in,” she said to Romney, with a sweet smile.
Um, if I’m not mistaken, deliberate transference of bodily fluids is a crime. Just absolute yuck, regardless of the party. Is Arianna your sister? Disgusting.
Hey, Claire… come to Atlanta and I’ll kick your ass for that! Dumbass. What a whiney liberal douchebag.
Well, this is day 2 of shutting Elisabeth down on trying to clarify that Obama’s associations are important, and again, the rest of the panel shut her down again (or tried to). They seem completely outraged that she’s bringing this up, but why shouldn’t they? They want Obama to win.
Justin McCarthy at Newbusters has the transcript and full story, and here’s a part of that:
HASSELBECK: My point is, itâ€™s not just Reverend Wright.
BEHAR: Where is my cake?
HASSELBECK: Itâ€™s not just Tony Rezko, a criminal. Itâ€™s not just William Ayers, a U.S. terrorist. Itâ€™s that time and time again Barack Obama has said “oh, I didnâ€™t realize that William Ayers was a terrorist.”
GOLDBERG: Thatâ€™s baloney because what is- what do we care about?
HASSELBECK: Care or poor judgment.
SHEPHERD: But can we talk about judgment?
GOLDBERG: Poor judgment? Okay.
SHEPHERD: Can we talk about poor judgment? What about the woman that McCain, no, excuse me. What about the woman that McCain left, the woman that McCain left that didnâ€™t even want him to know she had been in a horrible, horrible accident. And he came back, met another woman named Cindy McCain, left the woman that- can we talk about that? Can we talk about that?
Due to the high volume of downloads on my server for the .wmv video, I’d like to request you please download it in bit torrent format here: http://www.mininova.org/tor/1885620. Reader blueguitarbob was kind enough to upload it there, and it should download for you very quickly.
This situation has gone extremely viral, and I wasn’t even going to post it, but since there’s been so much interest in it, here I am. This all centers around an SNL skit about the huge bailout and how we got there, and apparently SNL has seen fit to pull it from their own site, as well as Hulu, and YouTube videos are disappearing faster than “Yes We Can” buttons at an Obama rally. It’s been uploaded to LiveLeak, but that could also disappear, too. I hate most of the video-sharing sites, especially YouTube. I like my own stuff culled from my TV and PC.
The web is all abuzz about this, so check Pat Dollard, Hot Air, and Michelle Malkin, who has a full transcript with screenshots as well as the controversy speculation about why this segment.
