Why Does Mark Halperin Still Have a Job?

Seriously. It’s cheap enough to be like “storm good for candidate arrrgh” or “Storm Bad for candidate!” But to be both for no real reason other than to just have something to say? Boo.

And yes, I realize that if you’re a pundit, you have to keep doing punditry. But maybe take a breath or some shit. I don’t know.

Just to be clear, I’m not inherently opposed to tying Sandy to the presidential election. It’s a week away, and Sandy may have an impact. But when there is a disaster, maybe step up your game.

    LOL! So Willard Romney can use him in his attack ads, so Halperin can grovel before right wing extremist tools like Hugh Hewitt and silly fools like Puddydope can call Halperin a leftist on orders from the proper right wing bullshit propaganda sources.

    Political pundits are like stock analysts: The media quotes them, nobody believes them, and everybody ignores them.

    Well, the stock market’s going to reopen tomorrow, thank the Great Mother Rabbit Spirit! I don’t know what I’d do with myself if I didn’t have the stock market to keep me entertained. It isn’t about the money — I’ve never spent any of it and never will. It’s something to do when I get bored with re-educating HA’s useless trolls.

    Do you suppose Christie’s praise for Obama, and his refusal to have Mittster come and do photo-ops, is because he’d rather run against Hillary in 2016, than wait around for two Romney terms, and running in 2020?

    YLB, well said.

    The slog to the bus I have through this rainstorm we got is tough in the morning, but looking what the east coast is going through, I realize it could be worse.

    @5
    I think Christie’s trying to “put the shine” back on his relationship with Obama because he figures Obama’s going to be around for another 4 years and NJ’s going to need 3⅓ fuck-loads of help from federal government to fix the mess they’re in.

    I like Christie. He’ll say what’s on his mind. The Big Guy is twice the man Romney is, and I’m not talking the size of his suit. If there’s anybody capable of leading the Republicans back from the edge of the abyss, it’d be Christie.

    That’s probably true, but has little entertainment value.

    Christie’s one of a handful of republicans i like.
