Joy-Ann Reid takes down Fast Eddie

for the bullshit meme of "African-Americans were 'lukewarm' to President Obama".

No we fucking weren't.

Like any group, everyone doesn't agree with everything that is done but to broad brush and keep repeating the bullshit gets on my last nerve.

I'm so sick of people "defining" us (African-Americans) and that includes this ass.

3. Yes - Ed Rendell.

He has always done his digs as a DLCer against Obama because ironically, Obama's whole "machine" managed to work around him and the DLC and the Democratic Party establishment in order to deal with these nasty big fish in the rethug party.

9. That was my guess...

Though I'm not sure I've ever heard him called that.

12. Here in PA & especially Philly

that's what we called him.

He is a masterful but ruthless and often back-stabbing old-school politician. The kind who has perfected being passive aggressive and like Tweety, he can be very condescending.

I think alot of it has to do with the fact that any politician who manages to stay with it for so long, has to have a MASSIVE ego.

7. I'd like to see her, Krystal Ball, and maybe Joan Walsh

with a show if they do some sort of "ensemble" type.

5. Saw that... Loved it...

Joy-Ann is the brightest new star in the MSNBC lineup. She is one smart woman.

6. Ed Rendell is an asshole.

 

always has been. always will be. He farts out whatever message the Clinton's want 'out there'.

sometimes he can be a slightly useful asshole but mostly not.

10. Every time I see him, I think of that nice private booth...

At the stadium that Comcast gave him for quashing low-cost broadband for all Pennsylvanians.

Of which I am one. He is literally a tool.

13. I saw that. It was beautiful.

Rendell's version of reality often has little to do with anything beyond broad brush painting for any group.

15. She is the only one who can overtalk Tweety

to the point where Tweety had to laugh about it, so I knew for this instance, she would have no problem.
