Could you please please PLEASE muzzle Chris Matthews until he's back on his meds? Perfectly delightful forum followed by Matthews overtalking everyone. Gag.

What the hey, MSNBC?!

On Friday night MSNBC usually sends viewers to prison. Tonight, however, the network is repeating the Democratic candidate forum. Twice. Then, in bizarre segue, instead of the usual “Lockup”, they’re going with “The Hitman Tapes” before proceeding to the usual prison fare.

I tried to watch Tweety, thinking he might offer something substantive in the runup to tonight's forum. Instead, he's relentlessly bullying his colleagues.

So, I admit that I failed. Channel switched.

Interviewing the Kochs

Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski were well prepared for their "interview" of the Koch brothers.

Republican Translator: Your Go-To Guide For Understanding GOP Catchphrases

When you don’t have winning policy to run on, sometimes the only thing left to do is deflect and distract. One of the easiest ways of doing this for Republicans is by coming up with words and phrases that can easily be repeated. And ideally, repeated often enough to be believed, even at the detriment to the voting base that believes them.

As much as the GOP may not like this, it’s extremely important for voters to be aware of what they’re actually hearing when politicians and conservative pundits speak. To aid in understanding what’s actually going on, here’s a handy guide to understanding common catchphrases:

States Rights: This is often used with issues that conservatives want to throw hissy fits over (gun rights, marriage equality, slavery, etc.) and don’t want the silly federal government to pull its trump card — the Supremacy Clause.

Liberal Media: Any media outlet that isn’t Fox News and won’t cater to scripted questions and answers. Otherwise known as fact-based, honest reporting.

Gotcha Questions: You’ll hear this one a lot when Republicans are asked questions they don’t know the answer to, or know that an honest answer will hurt their image. It basically means they’re embarrassed they just got caught being an idiot.
