If It's Sunday, it's time to meet The Pest!

It's all Darryl Issa and Fast and Furious all the time, UN fair and UN balanced among all the  Sunday Talking TeeVee Pundit Heads.
I have to hand it to the Republicans, they can make a scandal out of nothing. Literally, nothing. I am gobsmacked that the Republicans have actually concocted this elaborate "Obama-wants-to-take-your-Second-Amendment-rights" conspiracy out of thin air. The proof of this dastardly plan? That he HASN'T DONE IT YET. And yet more proof that the traditional media is completely beholden to the GOP and not at all interested in informing the public, they're going along with it instead of laughing at them and mocking their absurdity as they so richly deserve.
But hey, what else can they talk about?  They certainly can't talk about jobs, the economy, health care reform, education or any of the issues facing 99% of the American people can they?  Thanks to the media we have republicans are still delusional.
Dear Beltway elite: both sides do not do it. Republicans are crazy.
The Supreme Court who gave us Bush and Dick, Citizens United, and who has access to quality affordable health care for life, is now poised to strike down the Affordable Health Care Act.  Although the Talking TeeVee Pundit Heads are claiming it will be a huge defeat for President Obama, if they strike down part or all of the Act, NOTHING WILL HAPPEN.

WTH is the diversity in the Sunday Talk Shows?  The only cable outlet, other than MSNBC with black face(s)was Fox News Sunday of all outlets.  CNN's stab at diversity was black conservative Amy Holmes putting a black face on what they really want to say.  Black folks need not apply to host cable talk shows. No wonder the republicans feel as if they can spurn the NABJ (National Association of Black Journalist).

The Republican National Committee and the putative GOP standard-bearer, Mitt Romney, have ceded the National Association of Black Journalists convention to the Democrats, rejecting invitations to send speakers or panelists that the Democrats eagerly accepted.
 The lack of diversity  is evident in the Blogosphere too.  Did you hear the one about the black guy who works for Politico who got suspended for telling the truth about the white man?
POLITICO reporter Joe Williams has been suspended pending review of recent controversial comments he made on television and Twitter, POLITICO editors informed staff late Thursday night.
On MSNBC today, Williams made a remark suggesting Mitt Romney was only comfortable around white people. The video was first flagged by conservative website Washington Free Beacon. ran the video and also flagged a series of tweets Williams had written that made fun of the Republican candidate, particularly in regard to his wealth.
"Regrettably, an unacceptable number of Joe Williams's public statements on cable and Twitter have called into question his commitment to this responsibility," POLITICO's founding editors John Harris and Jim VandeHei wrote in a memo to the staff. "His comment about Governor Romney earlier today on MSNBC fell short of our standards for fairness and judgment in an especially unfortunate way."
Psst Joe!  I feel your pain.  Really I do.
I knew you wouldn't believe your change in status had nothing to do with your support or lack of it for a gubernatorial candidate and everything to do with the content of your comments and other posts. But that's the truth, end of story.
You won't hear it from the Talking TeeVee Pundit Heads of course but there were so many private jets at Mitt Romney's Republicanpoolza looked like an Air Force base.
