Chris Hayes: GOP now ‘smoking what they’re dealing’ on Romney poll numbers

Source: Raw Story

Saturday on MSNBC’s “Up with Chris Hayes,” host Chris Hayes likened Republican “poll truthers” to crackheads, saying that the GOP is “smoking what they’re dealing.” He invoked the late rapper Notorious B.I.G. (aka Biggie Smalls)’s “Crack Commandment” Number 4 to prove his point.

On the posthumously-released 1997 album “Life After Death,” the rapper known as Notorious B.I.G. performed the track “The 10 Crack Commandments,” a manual for life as a drug dealer. Tips for aspiring unlicensed pharmaceutical salespersons included, “Never let no one know/how much dough you hold,” “keep your family and your business/completely separated” and other pearls of presumably hard-won wisdom.

Rule Number 4, as noted by Hayes, is “Never get high/on your own supply,” which, sadly, some on the right seem to be doing with regards to former Gov. Mitt Ronmey (R-MA)’s chances at winning the presidency.

In what Hayes called “the alternate epistemic universe of right wing media,” GOP operatives like Karl Rove and Dick Morris seem to be broadcasting from an alternate universe where the problem isn’t the candidate or the electorate, but rather the polls.

3. Polls aren't an exact science, as we all know.

I would love to have the numbers the Obama team has, you can bet they are pretty close. That being said, if most polls agree you are behind by 10 in Ohio, you are in real trouble.
Romney knows he is trouble, he isn't going to admit. He is too busy making airplanes safer!!

5. Good line by Hayes, but B.I.G. was not street,

although that doesn't by necessity and in and of itself negate what he was saying.

They ARE smoking what they're dealing, and they are fucking themselves in the process (and other less mentionable places).
