At 10 o'clock eastern, I will be on MSNBC's Jansing & Co., talking about yesterday's use of deadly force on the National Mall, and the ongoing shutdown of the federal government.

    I have to give you credit Matt. I couldn't go on air with those clowns without turning to a complete asshole. You are a patient man.

  • sarcasmic||

    Dude, you can't get up in the morning without turning into a complete asshole!

  • John||

    Well, I did go to law school. So it is not like I don't have formal training or anything. But I guess maybe epic asshole as opposed to my usual complete asshole.

  • Rich||

    Please don't forget to surface the idea of mandatory background checks to have children.

    Break a leg, Matt.

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    Welch is as far right as MSNBC is willing to invite on one of their shows.

  • John||

    To them it is like inviting the Grand Wizard of the KKK.

  • sarcasmic||

    Those dastardly libertarians, wanting to impose liberty on people! How dare they?!?

  • John||

    The only people like Welch criticize Obama is because they can't handle a black man as President. You know that. Reason never cared about deficits and the drug war and the NSA when Bush was in office. Now they care so much when a black man is President?

  • Ted S.||

    I will be on MSNBC's Jansing & Co.

    Consistently call her Chris Kapostasy and see how she reacts. (That was her birth name, and the one she used when she was working at the NBC affiliate in Albany, NY.)

  • BakedPenguin||

    Well, she did marry a guy named Jansing.

  • DJF||

    Ask her why she is following the patriarchies rules?

  • BakedPenguin||

    Admittedly (to Ted's point), it was to further her career, so she gets to keep her feminist cred.

  • VG Zaytsev||

    Matt's parroting beltway bubble bs.

    Disappointing but predictable.

  • VG Zaytsev||

    "You don't want to be on the wrong side of the 72% number" (bullshit push poll)

    Seriously Matt WTF????

  • VG Zaytsev||

    Did you get the job Matt?
    Please tell me you're not Weigilizing for free.

  • Matt Welch||

    We've been over this, VG, but I think Republicans, and our Wacko Bird friends in particular, played a good hand badly. I'll write up a long post further explaining my reasoning on that later.

  • VG Zaytsev||

    Ok, Still love ya man.
