Al Sharpton's 'Revvie' Awards Targets Karl Rove With 'Blueberry Pie Lifetime Achievement' Honors
If you're wondering what MSNBC hosts and regulars are up to, look no further than Al Sharpton's "Revvie Awards" where Democrats were honored and Republicans skewered for an hour on Wednesday night..
The "Blueberry Pie Lifetime Achievement" award was the highlight of the evening, going to MSNBC villain Karl Rove. Rove also picked up the coveted "Lost Their Shirt" Award, which the MSNBC judges were ecstatic about. [See video after jump. MP3 audio here.]
Plenty of ridiculous titles were heaped on Republicans, including the "This Dud's For You" award, the "Empty Chair" award, and the "Blueberry Pie Lifetime Achievement" award. Judges included MSNBC regulars and hosts: Richard Wolffe, Jonathan Capehart, Krystal Ball and Victoria DeFrancesco Soto.
Each offered his own smears of the GOP. All of the positive awards went to Democrats like Elizabeth Warren and Hillary Clinton who were hailed as "rising stars." The "big winner" was ruled both President Obama and the 47 percent.
Some of the more "serious" awards included the "Worst Political Farce" which the panelists gave to GOP efforts like the "witch-hunt against Susan Rice" and the GOP "war on women."
