Maddow is a Child

I'm all for dick and ass jokes. People that know me know that I can hardly resist the opportunity to insult someones mother or make a crude gesture with any found phallic object. That being said I have to wonder if Rachel Maddow thinks herself the new Walter Cronkite with this little gem.

CNN and MSNBC are all over the "tea bag" jokes this week and while I'm sure they think they are clever, I can't imagine how they expect to be taken seriously as journalists. I'm all for humor but can we really combine news coverage of economic crisis and jokes about balls without maybe losing some credibility. Which calls into question how much credibility these idiots had in the first place.

My advice: let Jon Stewart handle the jokes about dick and balls and maybe we can convince him to leave the shoddy journalism to the likes of Maddow and her ilk. Probably not though.

Bonus: if you don't know what 'tea bagging' is... You have to look it up, I'm not going to describe it for you.

It is unfortunate that she does not have her facts straight that the Tea Bag parties are not organized by the GOP but by a non-partisan group called the 9-12ers. While the people supporting the "Tea Bag" movement are probably predominately Republicans - does she realize that there a huge faction of regular citizens who don't like the direction of the GOP and are very not happy with the fact the Dems and Reps in Washington are basically the same beast with different names!
