Looks like we have a new leader on the left for proponent of this year's most delusional conspiracy theory.

Libtalker Thom Hartmann on his radio show Monday went somewhere you'd otherwise expect to find Occupy squatters reeling from bong hits and railing against the man. (h/t for audio, Brian Maloney at mrctv.org) --

Based on her experience as a frequent churchgoer. Obviously.

Libtalker Stephanie Miller on her radio show today used a pithy analogy to describe Mitt Romney appearing to sweat during last night's final presidential debate (audio, h/t, Brian Maloney at mrctv.org) --

How about that, it was actually mentioned on MSNBC last night that President Obama responded to the deadly attack on the US consulate in Benghazi ... by winging to a fundraising "jaunt" in Vegas the following day.

Of course, the awkward fact that Obama did this wasn't cited by one of his innumerable apologists at America's cable version of Pravda. Instead, it came from a Republican acting as surrogate for Mitt Romney after the third and final presidential debate. (video after page break)

... the bellowing voice of liberal belligerence outdoes himself again.

Managers at radio stations that carry Ed Schultz's radio show were surely rethinking the rationale for that after his rage-filled and bizarre remarks on Friday, clear evidence of desperation on the left at the specter of Mitt Romney defeating President Obama (audio clips after page break).

Liberal radio host Bill Press wants it both ways.

He's "blown away and upset" that Gallup's daily tracking poll yesterday showed Mitt Romney ahead of President Obama by seven points. Press also wants everyone to know that the poll is meaningless. (audio clip after page break)

Lions and tigers and Nazis, oh my!

You know liberals are desperate when their hyperbole about Republicans turns the corner from absurd to unhinged. (audio clips after page break)

Hope springs eternal among MSNBC liberals.

Providing that Obama wins a second term. (video after page break)

Smoking-gun evidence that ABC's Martha Raddatz was a biased moderator in the vice presidential debate -- Rachel Maddow is gushing about her.

On her MSNBC show Friday night, Maddow went so far as to suggest that Raddatz was worthy of the presidency (video after page break) --

The vice presidential debate isn't the only place you've seen that bizarre mix of jocular bellicosity displayed by Joe Biden. It's on MSNBC every weeknight in the form of  "The Ed Show."

Not surprisingly, its host Ed Schultz is taking credit for Biden conducting himself in a manner all the more unsettling when one considers that Biden is a heartbeat from the nuclear launch codes. (audio clips after page break)

And they wonder why we sometimes question whether they love America.

On his liberal radio show yesterday, Bill Press was disparaging Christians as hypocrites when he expanded his criticism to Americans as a whole (audio) --

Perhaps it's just me, but this came across as a tad excessive.

On her MSNBC show last night, Rachel Maddow told of speaking on Sunday at the Arlington Theatre in Santa Barbara about her book "Drift: The Unmooring of American Military Power," before an audience she estimated at 2,000 people. (video after page break)

October 9, 2012, 6:40 PM EDT

Behold -- Rachel Maddow, sans snark, smarm, irony or spin. Enjoy while this lasts, you might never see it again.

For fleeting moments on her MSNBC show last night, Maddow described the presidential race in a way that liberals and conservatives watching together might nod in agreement and refrain from sneering at one another. (video after page break)

October 5, 2012, 7:25 PM EDT

Isn't it amusing when liberals allege deceit by Republicans while engaging in it themselves?

Yet another example of this shabby dynamic was on display during last night's Rachel Maddow show on MSNBC when its host and one of her guests, Bloomberg gnome Jonathan Alter, tried their best to buff a gloss on President Obama's mail-it-in debate performance. (video after page break)

Give the woman credit, this would explain it.

After last night's debate in Denver, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow asked Obama adviser David Plouffe to be "candid" in explaining the president's lackluster performance (video after page break)

October 4, 2012, 1:55 PM EDT

You might think of this one as a sequel to the Debacle in Denver.

MSNBC weekend host Chris Hayes was not his chirpy self last night after running into a buzzsaw known as former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani in an exchange reminiscent of that between a befuddled President Obama and a nimble Mitt Romney (video after page break) --

The sky is falling, Mitch McConnell warns.

Correction: the sky is falling, Mitch McConnell warns, according to Rachel Maddow. Big difference. (video after page break)

Libtalker Ed Schultz and The Nation magazine's John Nichols could soon be receiving a flood of offers to buy swampland in Florida. Perhaps by then they will each be a bit more skeptical.

Both were among numerous liberals who yesterday took hold of a bogus story by the hook and swam for all it was worth. (audio clips after page break)

September 26, 2012, 2:20 PM EDT

Notice how quiet liberals have gotten about the Supreme Court's Citizens United ruling?

Seems like only minutes ago they were gnashing teeth and rending garments that it was the end of democracy as we know it. (video clip after page break)

Sure sounds like it, but you be the judge.

Here's Schultz on his radio show Wednesday, doing his part in the liberal media pile-on after Mitt Romney dared suggest considerable overlap between President Obama's supporters and those Americans most dependent on government (audio) --

Cardinal rule on the left -- when in doubt, blame Dubya.

This also comes in handy for diverting attention from Dear Leader. (audio clip after page break)
