Coming in at #18 is a person very few people have probably heard of- Esquire political blogger and ESPN sports analyst Charles Pierce. There lies the problem in a nutshell- a sports writer doing political commentary. Its just as silly as a community organizer becoming the President. Charles Pierce zoomed into 18th place since he came out in defense of his “friend,” Jonathan Gruber. In fact, he claimed that Gruber did not mis-speak when he called the American public “stupid” by asserting the American public really was stupid. As proof, he noted that “stupid” Kansans reelected Sam Brownback as Governor. But then again, Pierce is no stranger to the “Americans are stupid” meme since he’s used that phrase in other contexts, such as people would be “stupid” for rejecting [mc_name name=’Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’W000817′ ].
And his powers of political commentary are interesting. Although obviously supportive of Warren, his second choice would be…. [mc_name name=’Sen. Al Franken (D-MN)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’F000457′ ]. The outbreak of ebola in Africa is, according to Pierce, solely attributable to George W. Bush and most eerily, he believes that only high-quality informative news can be provided by the government. Ouch! Ask the people of Venezuela and Cuba how that is working out. He may have been one of the only defenders of the Wendy Davis wheelchair advertisement this year. He claims to be speaking for most liberals who are too afraid to state that Republicans have been “nuts” for years.
I could spend more time on this “stupid nut” but it would be a waste of time. You get the gist. Word of advice to Charles Pierce: stick to ESPN. You can always make a fortune railing against names of sports teams.
Speaking of [mc_name name=’Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’W000817′ ], she comes in at #17. The poster girl for the “progressive Left,” she has been increasing her presence in the spotlight. Some say this is in anticipation of a run for the presidency in 2016 should Shrillary decide otherwise. Warren is a Democratic Senator from Massachusetts which is not a difficult task to achieve unless your name is Martha Coakley. No doubt, Warren’s Native American Cherokee heritage helped in this regard.
Given her high regard among the far Left loonies at DailyKos and other liberal outlets run by children, it should give everyone pause before voting for Warren. Where one smells a rat, most likely there is a rat. I am sure she will win some votes among the Jewish population since she equated Israeli policies with those of the Nazis (sarcasm intended). At the Alternet convention, to loud applause, she released her 11-point populist/liberal manifesto which sounds like a Nazi manifesto from the 1930s. And this is the Left’s answer to the alleged defender of the middle class? Yep– this self-styled champion of the poor, defender of the middle class and throw-the-bankers-in-jail fire breathing pitch fork carrier of a politician supports the biggest piece of phony capitalism- the Import-Export Bank- an entity described by one banker as “free money in my pocket.” Additionally and most egregiously, she inspired perhaps the most vomit-inducing song from supporters in the history of American politics…ever!! Enough said….
