RINO Michael Smerconish really, really wanted that job at MSNBC. He wanted that job so badly that he backed himself into a corner playing footsie with Barack Obama.
He dealt with the embarrassment that came when a sports / comedy broadcaster on a sort-of-but-not-really competing station did a more newsworthy interview with Obama than he did during the Pennsylvania primary. Angelo Cataldi at WIP got the “my grandmother is a typical white person” money quote. Smerconish guided Obama through his stump speech. It didn’t matter. He had his eye on the prize: A cubicle with a view of Keith Olbermann.
What was a RINO to do when, after all his hard work at abandoning every principal he claimed to hold, the powers that be at MSNBC decided Rachel Maddow is more telegenic than him? He can’t back down now. He has to follow through.
Mr. Integrity is about to endorse the most liberal member of the US Senate. A former member of the socialist “New Party” with entire portions of his personal history he refuses to discuss. The guy who gave $800,000 to an organization involved in the most wide ranging attempt at voter fraud our country has ever seen. The guy who blocked Illinois’ “Born Alive Infant Protection Act” because the concept of an unencumbered “right” to abort a baby was more important than an actual living baby.
A guy whose long-time political mentor terrorist buddy has a picture of Mumia Abu Jamal taped to his office door in tribute.
Michael Smerconish lit up the phone lines and filled his in-box this morning at his WPHT show with word that he’s planning to vote for Barack Obama — marking the first time since he registered to vote 28 years ago that he’ll pull the Democrat lever for president.
He’ll explain all in his Sunday column in The Inquirer’s Currents section — as much as he can do in 750 words. The intro reads: “John McCain is an honorable man who has served his country well. But he will not get my vote.”
I wish I could say I care what this guy has to say after this. Unless it’s “Obama has pictures of me in a comprimising position,” I doubt I’d believe it anyway. After the initial burst of interest, I hope he enjoys his Air America worthy ratings.
You cannot deeply hold any traditionally conservative value and see your way clear to voting for Obama. He is against even the most basic of them.
I hope Smerconish has a gameplan for his future that involves a position where credibility is not a requirement.
Like That? You'll Probably Like These.
