Andrea Mitchell, wingnut Mother Confessor. — Santorum aide Alice (in Wonderland) Stewart, pretended she didn't say this on the forum that has lately become a wingnut confessional, the Andrea Mitchell Show. What is it about Andrea's sweetness that compels wingnuts not to unburden themselves of their loathsome, despicable ideology, but to try and explain it: "If only Andrea would understand (she treats us like regular, decent humans instead of the monsters we truly are) ... if only Andrea could understand, all will be swell with the world"?
Hmm ... "radical environmentalist" v. "RADICAL ISLAMIST" policies: (weighing, weighing.) A few minutes later, Stewart calls Andrea to claim she "misspoke" and Andrea, sweetness personified, believes her. Well, she ran it by Chris Cillizza who is an off-the-charts boy scout and always seems to be around when Andrea needs to restore her faith in humanity.
