I just watched last night’s Hardball and I am pissed off beyond words.
One segment featured a video that showed teabaggers mocking and throwing money at a man with Parkinsons Disease. Yes, whenever you’re sure these brain-damaged pukes have reached the bottom of the barrel — like when they shouted down a disabled woman at a town hall last year — lo and behold, they lift the barrel and scrape some more. But as sickening as it was, what followed the video was pretty nauseating too.
One of the putrid, brainless subhumans in the video had a sign identifying him as being with Koch whores “Americans for Prosperity”, the fake grassroots organization behind the teabagger rallies, so Matthews interviewed AFP’s sleazy little mouthpiece Tim Phillips to get his take on the ugly scene. Grasping at straws for a way to counter Matthews’ pro-health care reform arguments, Phillips brings up the subject of a certain Canadian woman who he claims sought out Americans For Prosperity to help her because — sob! — she couldn’t get health care in Canada.
As Tweety would say, let’s watch.
It’s about 4 minutes in. The slimy Phillips was clearly not doing well against Matthews’ pro-reform arguments, so he grasped at one final straw and rolled the dice that Matthews wouldn’t recall the Shona Holmes backstory, and how much of it was bullshit. Not to mention how legions of furious Canadians responded to her lying douchebaggery by tearing her so many new orifices that she was abruptly dropped as AFP’s anti-reform spokesperson. Right, Shona Holmes “sought out” Americans For Prosperity — on her own, no less. She wasn’t referred to them by Canada’s own version of AFP, the Canadian Constitution Foundation, who found her because they keep a lookout for people like her that they can whore out to their stateside partners in private health insurance gouging.
Tell me another one!
Not that I expect it, but it would be NICE if someone called Phillips on his BULLSHIT next time he’s interviewed on MSNBC, or anywhere. Bang! That’s all, folks.
