Speaking of NBC and Idiot Punditocracy GOP tool David Gregory, did anyone notice that in Mitch McConnell's Sunday shows appearance (was it with Gregory, as usual for GOP leadership? ... I couldn't tell) he used the Obama campaign slogan "change" rather than END or KILL Medicare, which should have been Gregory's and the rest of his Idiot Punditocracy Beltway Media comrades' responsibility to correctly characterize what the Ryan plan to KILL MEDICARE would do? I alluded to it in this blog — how Gregory literally put talking points in Newt's mouth, including the highly misleading euphemism for KILL, "change"— but they couldn't have picked up on it here, since no one in those circles of HELL reads this blog (do they?) ... Still, it's aggravating to see the Gregorys of this world handing some McConnell Frank Luntzite factotum their Sunday talking point on Medicare: "Oh ... the Republicans are only going to change it." That's like saying the climate change tornado that tore through Joplin, MO claiming dozens, maybe hundreds, of lives ... "changed" the town's landscape. Just in time for the boss's appearance on Meet The Press. Remember, the Republican plan to KILL MEDICARE will KILL THOUSANDS OF OUR FELLOW CITIZENS. David Gregory is a disgrace to journalism. Such as it is.
McConnell revealed the Republicans' new strategy in their war on the American people, which aims to destroy Medicare and Social Security: They're doubling down. They're not retreating from their Stalingrad, AKA, NY-26. McConnell's high-stakes poker game is to hold us, the American people, hostage to their radical schemes by linking any vote to raise the debt ceiling with deep cuts in Medicare. This requires leadership and spine from Democrats, to stand firm with 80 percent of the American people, and the message-vote from NY-26 that Medicare and Social Security are OFF THE TABLE. Here we go again.
In the meantime, Paul Ryan is thrilled to have gotten the most sought-after endorsement for any Republican — from the Lord of Darkness, Satan's Consigliere himself:
