1. Allen Is A Suck-Up
I can't look at this shitstain without thinking how he was one of Rove's biggest cheerleaders and corporate media enablers. At least when he's talking about repugnicans he's using the word "we"...freudian? doubtful.

Good morning...

:hi:

2. He's better than that other Politico-fuck they have on weekdays
My brain blocks out his name but the guy is on there 3 or 4 times a week, a real pissant.

4. "Rushbo Is The Most Listened To..."
:puke:

Naybe around the Politico office. I've always been suspect of that operation. Allen is definitely the worst there...petty and full of himself.

The only other dudes I see from the Politico were Jim vandeHei...but didn't see him much during the campaign and Ben Smith who covered the Obama campaign, and actually did a pretty good job.

12. You've Been Suspect Of Them?
Edited on Sun Jan-18-09 08:00 AM by ProfessorGAC
I think they're past the point of suspicion! They are clearly and obviously a fake news orgainzation further pursuing the cause of the radical right.

14. Good Mornin' Prof...
OK...I'm being subtle. All I have to say is the name Joseph Allibritton...the owner of Politico. When his first hires were VanDeHei and Allen, it was obvious the lean of that site.

I wouldn't call them radical right...like the Moonie Times...but they sure do like to play the beltway games, subtle in the way they astroturf the propaganda.

Cheers...

15. Well, You're Right
I'm not saying Politico is the radical right, but they're still carrying water for the radical right. Perhaps even more pernicious.

6. What an Egotistical Slimebag...
"Everyone reads the Politico"? Wrongo. I've never seen a copy of that bird cage liner nor have ever bothered to read their website. Joe Allibritton can make his right wing money from others...not me.

The other day I think it was Atrios who pointed out the game stenographers like Allen play...attempting to always use a right wing talking point or "assumption" as "conventional wisdom" to show how "balanced" he is.

9. It's Safe To Come Out...He's Gone
Arianna will be on in a few minutes...hopefully the BP will lower.

Allen just chaffes my backside...a real smug, smarmy operative.

Cheers...
