"You didn't talk about Poland, Joe!!!"

Poor Dan Senor, spinning his little knickers into a twist on MJ today. Joe is tearing him a new one on Mitt's pitiful overseas trip (where Dan was one of his top advisors). Joe trashed Mitt on London and Israel and Dan took up so much time spinning them that Joe wouldn't even go to the Poland visit.

"But...but...Lech Walesa ENDORSED Romney!" sputtered Dan.

Dan, Dan, try to keep calm. Take a note: nobody in this country CARES who Walesa endorses, IF they even know who the hell he is! He means nothing, nada, zip to the American voters.

That segment, that also had Andrea Mitchell scold him like a school child on the difference between the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, must have given Dan a throbbing headache...

1. I'll say it again: anytime Senor is on camera, the chyron should ID him as a "Romney Advisor"

The SOB is on Rmoney's f***ing payroll and he's allowed to sit there like he's just one of the regular pundits who happens to lean conservative.

2. All one need do is listen to Dan Senor for 30 seconds

and it becomes abundantly clear why the Coalition Provisional Authority was one of the signal catastrophes in American history. This guy was in charge of communications for the CPA. He's an absolute imbecile, able only to spin out increasingly irrelevant talking points that have no connection whatsoever to reality. The reason the Dan Senor's of the world hold out Lech Walesa like a GOP shibboleth is simple: he's the (utterly irrelevant) face of the "people's" protest against (no longer actually existing) Soviet-style communism. They hold this up as if it's some kind of magic amulet. In other words, it is a purely ideological procedure with no link to any current policy, need, or problem.

This is exactly how they ran the Coalition Provisional Authority.

It was nothing more than an idea factory for irrelevant conservative ideologies. It administered nothing; it solved not one problem; it touched ground never. It was staffed with imbecilic ideologues like Dan Senor - it put YFA college purists in charge of major social policy. And tens of thousands of Iraqis and Americans died as a result.

That's Dan Senor's track record, on display again this morning. The man should be shunned. Instead, he is embraced by the establishment and press as if he knows something. Tens of thousands of dead Iraqis and Americans are on his ideologfical shoulders, yet he prances around teevee like the cock of the walk. It's disgusting beyond words.

3. thanks for the background info...

I always suspected that Walesa hype was phony...

But I don't think Senor did himself any favors today. His appearance was a disaster. Joe just scourged the guy for all to see. I couldn't have been happier...

Joe was in a bad mood to begin with. After running his mouth earlier this week about how "Obama's Bain attacks aren't working in the battleground states" here came fresh polling and SURPRISE! Obama is leading handily in the battleground states!

You can spin all you want, Joe, but if you do you'll look like the idiot you are when you are proved wrong AGAIN!

4. ":Take a note: nobody in this country CARES who Walesa endorses,"

I think you might be wrong about that...The Labor movement here might

care, not to mention the Millions of first generation Polish Americans who well-remember

his Solidarity Movement in the 80's and even more so, perhaps, the tens, if not

hundreds of thousands of Polish immigrants this country has admitted since the

fall of communism.

My perspective may be due, at least partly, from the fact that I live in Chicago

which has the second highest Polish population outside of Warsaw.

7. Yes, I'm sure that population does know. But for the rest of the general public, I don't

think they are either old enough or care that much any more. When I read about how many Americans don't even know who their Vice President is, I wonder how much anybody here retains any knowledge outside of their day to day work and routine.

Amazing, but I think true. And I'm sure it's disappointing to some Polish Americans that there isn't more acknowledgement of the Solidarity movement of that time...
