"Make a Hole, Make it Wide"
In a past blog, Big Poppa was talking about how today's candidates cannot use "taken out of context" of something they wrote or spoke in the years past, using Ms. Christine O'Donnell as an example. However, Big Poppa thinks he found someone even more profane in their "out of context" words then Ms. O'Donnell's witchcraft history.
After watching the his favorite hockey team lose in their home opener and a few green bottle Heineken's tossed away (yes I recycle), Big Poppa turned on the Rachel Maddow Show.
I admit, I turn on Maddow's TV show for about 10 minutes nightly, as I do with Hannity, O'Reilly and Lawrence O'Donnell. Sorry folks, I never liked Olberman, not even when he was on ESPN. Although I do belief CNN's needs to revive Crossfire and I do miss Scarborough Country, even though I watch good 'ol Joe every morning.
Sorry got off track, where was I... Oh yes, Rachel Maddow (has she ever thanked the Bow tie Tucker Carlson for the TV spot?)
So Maddow had a guest on by the name of Art Robinson. Mr. Robinson is running as the GOP candidate in Oregon. Now I admit, I stumbled upon the interview 1/4 of the way thru, dang(!) it, I wished I saw the beginning.
These two went at it, Mr. Robinson kept saying Maddow was being sarcastic and interrupting him during his answers, yet he did the same to her. How Maddow didn't pull a FOXNews Meghan Kelly and have his mic pulled is beyond me.
Maddow, trying to understand Mr. Robinson as the viewing audience, asked him about his past writings to which Mr. Robinson called her interview a "smear campaign." What I got out of this interview was; Mr. Robinson is a Scientist, teaches at the local University, and he's not a politician. I also got that he performed one too many experiments on himself.
Maddow printed off some his writings, in a newsletter he publishes, with his thoughts of: AIDS was a government experiment and a little radiation won't hurt anyone.
See this is what Big Poppa was talking about, if you're gonna run for office, you better know what you said in the past.
The radiation thing got me. According to Mr. Robinson, the best way to get rid of nuclear waste is a process called "hormesis" which he is basically taking the nuclear radiation down to the smallest ion and then spread it out over the ocean and even into the air above the United States. Because according to Mr. Robinson's writing a little radiation is good for everyone!
But that was all we were able to learn about it, because he wouldn't admit he wrote about it and that Maddow was taking it out of context.
Better explanation would've helped his cause.
Like I said, I watch maybe 10 minutes of her show, but the train I saw and how she handled it was classic. You can her annoyance, once banging her head against her desk plus how uncomfortable Mr. Robinson was by spinning side to side in his chair.
That was much better then "S&^* my father says" on CBS
