Tim and Alissa Birkel Call Out Rachel Maddow’s Spoonful of Leftism

September 27, 2009


NewsReal’s Tim and Alissa Birkel have been focusing on rebutting the smears and distortions of MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow. They have created a series chronicling Maddow’s missteps titled “A Spoonful of Saccharine” Explaining the title, the husband-and-wife writing team wrote in their first entry in the series:

Our friend and colleague David Swindle wrote that Rachel Maddow is the Mary Poppins of the left–pleasant and reasonable-sounding enough that she comes off as more reasonable than her actual stance might be. Mary Poppins used a spoonful of sugar to help the medicine go down, but Maddow’s sweetener of choice is something different. Hers is pure fiction–a calorie-and-truth-free artificial sweetener to help the leftist ideology go down. And (with apologies to diet soda aficionados) like most artificial sweeteners something about it tastes wrong, it’s a poor substitute for the real thing, consuming too much can give you a headache, and prolonged exposure can lead to cancer. OK, so that last part of the analogy doesn’t really hold. But observe the artificial truth flavoring her latest show.

    Prolonged exposure CAN give you brain cancer, for sure.

    Rachel Maddow is a Bolshevik Alinskyite.

    Look at her picture long enough and you can see the tortured angst just under the surface. Like all the rest of them, you can’t take stands that are crimes against nature and come out of it unscathed…

    Olberman just has that blithering idiot look, in spite of all of “manufactured” jargon and picturesque oratory, just another Godless, bumbling idiot…
