LOL! On AC360 Frum Lifted The Propaganda Curtain & Maudlin's Head Spun Like The Girl On The Exorcist

He was explaining how the reich wing echo chamber (or "Conservative Entertainment Complex" as he aptly describes it) had brainwashed Conservatives into believing the myths about Myth and stating they had been "beaten badly" in the election.


Mary Maudlin, clutching pearls and visibly shocked that one of her own was lifting the curtain, tried to come back with the usual "what about the Liberal echo chamber?", to which both Anderson Cooper and David Frum seemed to just scoff at. Cooper saw that there's a validity to what Frum was saying and expressed a genuine keenness to have him back for more on this.

Frum's apparently written a book in record time called "Why Romney Lost". Prescient title, sure, but I doubt it says anything about President Obama simply being infinitely the best candidate and Americans wanting 4 more years of his Presidency.


Transcript, video later as and when I find them.

1. I caught the end of it, what the hell was that around her neck

she was horrible, wouldn't give Frum a chance to talk, which he was the only 1 making sense.
She claims the RW lost because they failed to get out their base.

3. Which is the most ridiculous excuse so far

Their "base" are, of course, the majority of morans who voted for Myth.

I think that she was wearing that thing as a bet.

I loved the way Cooper was laughing AT her in the end.

2. If the Republican establishment really wants to get rid of the damaging CEC

(Conservative Entertainment Complex) they have to buck up and start refusing to go on it. Cold turkey. I know that will be hard to do. But they need to use mainstream and various local outlets exclusively. There's still enough of the establishment left to segue the party out of there.

Sure, in the meantime, the CEC will be promoting Tea Party crackpots, but they can be denied RNC funds and get no backing. It may take an election cycle or two to effect this change and take back their party to half sanity. I don't see anyway to do it but to totally turn their backs on Rush, Fox, et al.

4. I suspect Frum was actually reading people like Nate Silver and Sam Wang this year.

He probably had most of the book written well before election day.
