BUSTED: Mark Halperin Responds To Being "USED" In Romney Ad!

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!?!! (TRANS: LOL) Poor Bob Schieffer had a more dignified response, saying unequivocally (which Halperin, by the way, DID NOT SAY) "I have no connection with the Romney campaign." Here's Halperin's characteristically grandiose and pretentious TRINITY of tweets, comparing himself to Marbles Mouth and, funniest of all, to a journalist.

BUT ... Mark Halperin is ALMOST telling the truth, in his own way, by (a) omitting his connection to the Romney campaign, so technically, he didn't have to LIE; (b) since he didn't mention his role as a Romney campaign consultant/plant, likewise his role as a sometime journalist (in the way CIA agents, or in Halperin's case partisan political hacks, are "journalists") his TRUE role as a BIG-TIME (Mag) MEDIA PHONY wasn't "compromised" as he chose to express phony indignation about his role as a sometime "journalist." So, Mark Halperin told a half-truth about one half of his DUAL role.

Yup, it's convoluted. In short, Mark Halperin is a human PRETZEL MACHINE. SPIN-SPIN-SPIN!!! And yeah, he's MSNBC's "senior political analyst," which shamefully reinforces the MSNBC MEDIA CESSPOOL narrative. Right, NBC News media ZOMBIES?

A new advertisement from the Mitt Romney campaign — Schieffer, Halperin protest Romney ad
CBS News's Bob Schieffer and MSNBC analyst Mark Halperin have spoken out in opposition to a new Romney campaign ad that features them discussing negative attacks by the Obama administration.

On "Face the Nation" this morning, Schieffer said he was "shocked" by the ad. "That was a question that I posed to David Axelrod -- not a statement," he said. "I have no affiliation with the Romney campaign. This was done without our permission."
On Twitter, Halperin wrote, “To echo what NBC News’ Tom Brokaw said in January, when his image and voice were used in a Romney campaign TV ad: ‘I am extremely uncomfortable with the use of my personal image in this political ad. I do not want my role as a journalist compromised for political gain by any campaign.’”
Neither NBC nor MSNBC gave the Romney campaign permission to use the material, NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt announced Sunday evening, and have asked the campaign to "refrain from doing so."
