Predictable does not begin to explain what began today. Write down the date, it’s almost as significant as May 11th 2014 .
Chris Wallace had the last two weeks off. He returns today, March 1st, carrying a remarkable reinvigoration for the progressive ideology. Governor Scott Walker has become the primary roadblock to Rupert Murdoch’s chosen candidate, Jeb Bush. And Walker just finished 2nd to Rand Paul in the CPAC straw poll….
Toward that end, Walker must be removed; subtly, so as not to openly isolate the audience (revenue stream) for FOX News. [In 2012 Matt Drudge did the same thing for his guy Mitt Romney – it’s not so subtle when you know the objective and motivation$]
How do you do the bidding of the Murdoch? Simple, you do the same thing the progressive leftists do when trying to remove the impediment to “your guy”.
Watch Chris Wallace focus on… wait for it… the hot button issues of the time, the social issues, the issues that no-one actually gives a flip about.
Wallace then brings forth his first panel – look at the CHOSEN punditry for this most auspicious of occasions:
Jane Harmon, Kathleen Parker, Charles Lane and the token -yes token- Jason Riley (even Wallace knows he needs to retain the guise of plausible deniability so that his defenders can reference a point or two).
Together they create the Potemkin Village around which the optics and discussion must focus. Shock fail.
Gee, what a surprise to see the panel talk about the “Amateur Hourness” conservative contingent, those pesky 50 or so “extremists” within the House GOP. You know, those people we elected to actually reduce the size of government – yeah, those “amateurs”.
