Roundup: “Watching the MSNBC Watchers” edition
(1) Norah O’Donnell’s smug “truth squad-ing” of the Health Care Kabuki needs a little fact-checking of its own. She claims the CBO anticipates lower premiums under Obamacare, when in fact the opposite is true. The CBO anticipates an increase of 10-13% in premiums under O-care.
Increase… decrease… only two letters apart. So close, Norah.
(2) Despite rumors, Charlie Crist claims he’s not bolting from the Republican party. Where have we heard this before…?
(3) Oh look, the PATRIOT Act renewal passed the House, and nobody cared. I guess now that Bush isn’t President, it’s OK. Funny, that.
(5) Melissa Hart, move your car.
