We are all familiar with the debating tactic known as a ‘talking point’. Typically, when a candidate appears for an interview he has prepared in advance a number of talking points related to a number of top issues or as a response to anticipated questions.
During a recent interview on MSNBC, Alvin Greene apparently prepared only one talking point which he repeated ad nauseam. To nearly every question put to him by Lawrence O’Donnell, Mr. Greene responded by pointing out that Jim DeMint started the recession.
Actually, this extremely awkward interview was a new personal best for Mr. Greene. But, be that as it may, why after spending five full minutes with a candidate who is incapable of articulating an original cogent thought would Lawrence O’Donnell then endorse said candidate; I mean, other than the fact that O’Donnell is a piece-of-crap progressive working for the state run media?
