Lefty Lou and C3G2’s Overblown Jubilation

by lewwaters

Benton, Columbian Hate HeadlineFrom the excitement and gleeful comments both under Lazy C articles and over on C3G2 concerning State Senator Don Benton’s announcement that he will not seek a 6th term, you might believe the man simply evaporated from the face of the earth, instead of just announcing not seeking another term.

Lefty Lou Brancaccio is predictably beside himself as he penned a special Press Talk editorial today, Monday February 1, 2016, the announcement coming out after his usual Saturday smearing of those “M&M Boys” or Benton.

Lou Brancaccio Should Be Cleaning Toilets

by lewwaters

This was a bitter election campaign… [I]t felt like there was an opportunity to come together, to extend a hand rather than point a finger.

Longtime Democrat party activist, operative and pollster Pat Caddell recently stated, “The Press is the ‘enemy of the American people’” in a speech given at an Accuracy in Media event. Of course, he is addressing the media’s reluctance, or more accurately, their refusal to publish much about the ongoing scandals regarding the Obama Administration.

The bias is evidenced in their creation of controversies where none really exists as well as what can only be described as pure hate of certain elected officials, Republicans of course.

Created Controversy

Once again we see the Columbian taking something and blowing into a full blown scandal even though there actually is nothing really wrong. We saw this same creating a controversy previously as an elderly Democrat couple receiving a campaign letter seeking donations and disguised as a poll became offended and the paper created a huge scandal, Podunk Reporter Creates Issue, Boasts of Resolution.
