CNBC whales on Sen. Ben Cardin of Maryland. Relatedly: Ben Cardin is still alive.

The entertaining thing about this is that Ben Cardin is in fact pretty much a useless waste of a Senator.

Seriously, the guy’s been in Congress since 1987 (the Senate since 2007), and he’s done pretty much nothing.  Which is pretty much why CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo ripped into him for doing nothing but repeating the same stupid talking points about taxing the rich over and over and over again and never actually doing anything to solve the problem because Cardin doesn’t think that he has to.  Newsbusters grades her performance a little harshly, I think: while I agree that the Media’s been ignoring that the Democrats have been one-note wonders on fiscal issues (and that the Media’s ignoring our horrific spending problem), I also believe in positive feedback.  The goal is to get more of this, after all.



Racist Donny Deutsch slurs Marco Rubio (R CAND, FL-SEN).

Via Hot Air, check out the racial sensitivity of MSNBC/CNBC talking head Donnie Deutsch:

‘Coconut,’ for those lucky enough to have missed it up to this point, is a derogatory racial epithet hurled against dark-skinned individuals deemed insufficiently ‘authentic.’ It suggests that the individual in question is ‘brown on the outside, white on the inside.’ When used by someone of the same ethnic identity as the slurred individual, it takes on the additional connotation of ‘race traitor;’ when used by someone of Caucasian ancestry, it typically represents an opportunity to express racial hatreds in a socially acceptable manner. The Other Side has, shall we say, a history of such things; and if we ever have that full and frank discussion of race that’s been promised the first question that I plan to ask is going to be about precisely why this is acceptable behavior among them.

About the only thing mitigating this exercise in public racism is that it appeared on the Joy Behar show, which means that almost nobody saw it anyway.
