The Hilary Rosen controversy is absurd [Plum Line]

8. She’s a media-industry shill that helped give us the DMCA abomination, and was one of the leading shouters of “NAPSTER BAD!”

“Democratic strategist” = someone who gave a shitload of money to the campaign and now the President has to lean over and pretend to hear what you have to say at a crowded noisy party.

Yay! I have no idea what you are talking about! I win!

@Tommmcatt Wears A Hoodie Daily: Short version of a long day: Hilary Rosen is a CNN talking head who said something unkind about Mrs. Mitt last night. The entire Republican establishment and hangers-on immediately launched a Big Lie that Rosen was an “Obama advisor”, and Fauxtrage Ensued.

Rinse & Repeat through November.

I hate to get earnest about it — that’s what Steve Benen is for — but clearly I’m going to have to package Mitt’s Whoppers into a regular feature. It’s all he knows.

@nojo: Rinse & Repeat through November.

I have a very bad feeling President Obama is going to need every one of the billion bucks he wants to raise to prevent the GOP from using the same strategy that worked so well against Mitt’s opponents. Burying the other side in mud 24/7 worked extremely well and I’m afraid it could easily work again in November.

@Dave H: Money won’t be an issue.

But even by the standards of politics, Mitt’s a shameless liar. His ad last November where he deliberately misquoted Obama quoting McCain — and then expressed pride in the deception — set the tone. He’s worse than Talibunny, if that can be imagined, if only because she had a mere eight weeks to get her digs in.

Checking Mitt’s campaign blog, he has two lies leading the way:

If you’re a stay-at-home mom, the Democrats have a message for you: you’ve never worked a day in your life. That’s exactly what Obama adviser Hilary Rosen said about Ann Romney last night.

Hilary Rosen is not an Obama adviser.

Women account for 92% of all job losses since Barack Obama took office.

Romney counts from January 1, 2009. Never mind whatever date you would think it fair to start that particular clock.

And that’s just today.

I don’t want to whine about it — I’m not doing Team Blue here — but I need to figure out some clever way to deal with it, because as today shows, it’s here for the duration.

Could we have a Whoopie Cushion button, like the Vuvuzela or Rimshot button? You know, every time he lays one, just hit the button, get on with life.

@IanJ: @nojo: Maybe the Magic Underpants Get Bleached feature? I dunno. I was so stoked to see that the NYT grew the ovaries and spinal cord to actually dispute the “92% of the job losses went to Vagina-Americans” meme that I almost fainted. Holy shit, the media was almost doing its job today.

Okay, so if not bleached underpants, we could call it the “Smelling Salts” feature – to bring us all back to life after we pass out from the cloud of noxious shit and lies spewed by Mittens?

I’m trying here, trying to create a brainstorm, not a brainfreeze.

@SanFranLefty: I’m thinking running scoreboard. But knowing Mitt, I may have to allow for four digits.
