12. Howard Fineman tried to say this same shit on Chris Matthews' show
and Joan Walsh wasn't having any of it. She totally called him out on trying to use that false equivalency--saying the left was just as bad as the right. She was like "give me an example of that" and he couldn't. Even Chris Matthews was like wtf?

No, there is no equivalency in either message or tone. IF Ed or Keith is worked up, it's about a serious affront that is being perpetrated by fux/thugs on people--and Ed focuses on what impacts the middle/working class. Neither of them get worked up over trying to get a lie to catch fire--or trying to force a non story to sprout legs and take off for the next 3 news cycles.
