I guess there’s no longer any question on where ComCast sits, politically. I thought that they were smarter than the company from which they purchased this losing network. WRONG! But on the plus side, I’m glad they aren’t. They will remain on the losing side of the American public.
Ladies and gentlemen, check out the new “lean forward” ads by MSNBC stars (read that sarcastically.) These are amazing. And I take offense to Rachel Madcow at Hoover Dam, talking about America’s greatness (Hoover Dam, that fabulous engineering feat) that could never be done without the government leading the way.
Let’s put that in perspective, okay? That dam was built in less than 5 years. 5 YEARS! Do you know how long that bridge took? When we lived in Nevada, the sign said:
“Highway construction next (whatever) miles. 2003-2007.”
then it said “2003-2008”
then they took down the final year, just painted over it.
It was finished this winter — 2010!
Nearly 8 years to finish a bridge and a highway. Admittedly, that bridge is something to behold. It’s almost as amazing as the Dam itself. But it’s still not THE HOOVER DAM! There was no excuse for it to take nearly twice as long as the entire damned Dam! And actually it was more than a decade when you figure in all the impact studies and bullshit that the EPA and OSHA and all the other government alphabet agencies require.
This Ms.Madcow, is what happens when the government leads!
But I digress – as usual.
Watch the “leaning forward left” ads. They are, if nothing else, amusing!
