Barf! I had forgtten what a slimy little puke Chuckie Todd is.

Watching him prance and preen on Press the Meat today made we want to throw the nearest hard object right through the fucking TV screen. What an insufferable little dork he is. How in God's name did he get the job and, more importantly how in hell does he keep it???

just how cute and clever he is (as he pokes spear after spear at the Democrats). He is so taken with his own 'brilliance' that it's nauseating.

I’ve developed an iron stomach over crap like this. He’s just trying to compensate for being a neutrally bland doughboy, red headed, balding, brunt of jokes. And he can’t make up for by being smart or clever, though he can only fool himself. It’s a lose lose thing.

to throw in with those he presumably believes will win the battle for future control of our nation.

Btw, when he can't get away with spinning whatever egregious thing the Republicans are doing as innocent or good, he routinely, every day, often multiple times, spins it into false equalizations of Democrats with the Republicans. They all do it, nothing better to vote for. His staff and Sanders' probably watch the other's performances to pick up ideas and reinforce the themes each other is hitting.

its hard to believe they chose Chuck Todd. He is a consistent disappointment and someone should tell him "Don't try to be funny", it is so embarrassing.

Who is he blackmailing/extorting? Or who owes him a favor? Because there is no way that guy got where is his on talent, brains or looks. He has absolutely nothing going for him. He's got to have some leverage in some other way.

And they’re emblematic of Chuckie’s wishy-washy, maybe-yes-and-maybe no “personality.” Which is a stretch, as he has all the charisma of a garden snail.

is unfair to garden snails. I personally have seen at least one with much more charisma than Chuckie.

But as I run down the kingdoms, phylums and species, I’m taxed to find even one that wouldn’t suffer degradation if likened to that black hole of charisma— the aforementioned Mr. Todd.

Thus, in fairness, I can only say that Todd is a VAPID ASSHOLE, sui generis.

and a goal to meet: elect Republicans/defeat Democrats.

Btw, Axios was puffing up Todd without disclosing they both answer to the NBC upper-echelon power center. Then, of course, there's the Koch family's extremely substantial interest in Axios, which has a contracted lead into Morning Joe. Scarborough, of course, introduced the nation to the much misunderstood, really very nice and civically responsible Koch family he knows.
