MSNBC: Making the World Safe for Hypocrisy

During last week's election, my viewing buddy and I often clicked over from FOX News to MSNBC for a little schadenfreude as we watched the droopy faces of Olbermann, Matthews, Maddow, and O'Donnell as they watched so many of the candidates they worked so hard to get elected go down in flames.

After taking such a "shellacking" - to borrow the term from Obummer - MSNBC didn't take long to to begin whining about the Dems losing, their ratings, and life in general. One of their biggest complaints (steeped in raging jealousy) was the election night success of Fox News.

Rachel Maddow complained in her smug, snarky way that Fox News actually dared to have conservative candidates who, during their interviews, would dare to mention their campaign websites. Oh the humanity! MSNBC would never dare to let anything so horrific take place on their network would they? Would they? Maddow will set us straight:

Now that is some red meat right there. Those people on MSNBC are simply hateful and disgusting.

The Left employs a tactic: point out your opponents tactic as immoral, even if you use the same tactic. Divert the attention of your supporters to the other guy, point the finger at them, and keep your supporters eyes off of you. Two siblings steal from the cookie jar. One sibling points to the other and keeps the heat on, till mom and dad are so infuriated they can't see straight.
