Our Ignorant Dolt of the Week .... Robert Novak

Yes, 50% of the old "Errors and No Facts" team ...

The man who stops for no one, which included homeless people crossing the street in Washington DC, when zipping around in his Corvette (Yes, hard to focus on the image of this lump of fecal matter tooling around in a suped-up sports machine).

The man who was a party in the leaking of the identity of a covert CIA agent.

The man who stormed off a television set, rather than answer to the truth.

Robert Novak, our Ignorant Dolt of the Week!

Robert Novak, the conservative hack-whore, whose stench from carrying the GOP's water all these years actually waifs up from the newspapers that carry his column, or, the television screen he happens to appear on.

Now, it's not really clear he was watching the same election that was held last Tuesday night.

Maybe he got some scrambled version of GOPTV, or an early draft of the RNC/Rove talking points.

Or he got a whiff of his own stench, blurring his eyes.

For how else to explain this;

NO REALIGNMENT: No mandate for Obama, no lopsided Congress

The national election Tuesday was not only historic for the election of the first African-American president in the nation's history but also for how little the avalanche of Democratic votes changed the political alignment in Congress.

But Obama's win was nothing like that. He may have opened the door to enactment of the long-deferred liberal agenda, but he neither received a broad mandate from the public nor the needed large congressional majorities.
Hmmm ... Let's see here ...

Obama beat Stumblin' Bumblin' John McCain by 7.5-millions votes, roughly a 6% margin, turned 10 states from Red, to Blue, while the House picked up 20 new seats, bringing their majority to 255, and the Senate has picked up 5 seats, with a few races still to-be-determined.

Looks like a pretty good, lopsided, ass-kicking, landslide, majority mandate to me.

It's also deafening, how the Right Wing Freak Show is screaming this meme, and how the country is a "Center-Right" country.

Running, right up to the election, was something close to 85% of the country saying we needed change, while continuing to pin down The Commander Guy with ratings you could almost count on your two hands, yet people like Novak, and a whole stable of others, want to tell us to "pay no attention" to those election results, nothing is going to change.

They are clutching to the curtain that is closing on them.

But Wait, There's More!

No Facts turns around today, and starts touting Newt Gingrich as the man-with-a-GOP-plan

Newt in 2012?
In serious conversations among Republicans since their election debacle Tuesday, what name is mentioned most often as the Moses, or Reagan, who could lead them out of the wilderness before 40 years?

To the consternation of many Republicans, it is none other than Newt Gingrich, the former speaker of the House.

Oh Jesus!

Just what we need, Newt coming onto the playing field, armed, no doubt, with a new Contract On America.

It was just barely two years ago, Newt wanted to cut back on our Freedom of Speech, so, with the promising cleansing by an Obama Administration, not sure there'll be an appetite for a Bush Grindhouse-style blowtourching of our liberties in 2012.

It's a real, slobbering wet one of a column, so, apparently, No Facts, even in his twilight years, isn't afraid to drop to his knees to take one for the team that he thinks he's still on.

He's an old hack, believing that being fed smearing lies, or gossip, is the equivalent of gumshoe journalism

So, for such obvious, over-the-top dogma, for even trying to play the RWFS old game, Robert "No Facts" Novak joins our growing roster of IDOTW, Michele Bachmann, Brad Blakeman and Elizabeth Dole.

That's going to be some field they're warming up, to send out onto the field in 2012.

Newt, Joe The Dumber, and The Wasilla Whiz Kid.

Hmmm ... Perhaps a bigger mandate, a larger landslide be a'comin'?
