If it's Christie v. Hillary in 2016, who do you think would win?
The coverage of Christie by Democrats on the otherwise uber-loyal MSNBC has been very flattering to Christie, which makes me suspicious.

And, anyway, why have we been talking about Election Day 2016 since well before Election Day 2012?

I cannot recall anyone's having been anointed before the 2004 election.

1. I noticed the MSNBC hosts
and their flattery of Christie. Could they be any more obvious? Will we have a "none of the above" election feature next time?

MSNBC serves as an effective propaganda outlet because it is known as the 'liberal channel'. Of course you already knew that. If the PTB want to establish a critical meme directed at the non-crazy part of the citizenry they would do it through MSNBC not Fox.

Have you ever seen anything like the way MSNBC hosts kiss Michael Steele's ass? I have never understood that. Tweety is especially irritating.

3. Which MSNBC host did Michael Steele thank for getting him on MSNBC?
I said a while back that I saw No Labels, founded by Bushies, and joined by a slew of Clintonites, as a very dangerous organization.

Other than the Tea Party, they have nothing bad to say about any Republican. Say, Cheney, for example.

However, they consider what used to be the mainstream of the Democratic Party under, say, Truman, Kennedy and Carter, as "extreme." And they label "extremes" as toxic.

The goal seems to be to give the American people a choice between deficit and military hawks who do not condemn gays and/or reproductive choice and deficit and military hawks who do condemn gays and/or reproductive choice. Carroll Quigley in spades, via Bill Clinton and his successors.

5. P.S. The answer to my question in Reply # 3 is Rachael Maddow.
She also mentioned that she had wanted Steele on.

Chris Hayes also thanked her for his slot--which used to be that of Ed Shultz, who, at the time he was bumped into the worse slot of the weekend wasteland, was second highest in ratings to Maddow. (Before that, Olberman was.)

Many believe her to be is the most left of the MSNBC anchors. I used to think that myself.
