Tuesday, in a news clip, KOMO news radio listeners heard wormy Fox News star, and Newsmax shaman Dick Morris declaring, “I think Dino Rossi’s gonna run and I think he’s gonna save this country.”
Morris claimed that R’s will win in 9 senate races across the country (including, dubiously, Barbara Boxer’s) then come to Washington to add No. 10 with perennial candidate Rossi. “It’s going to be the key race in the country. […] he’s the one who can defeat Murray.”
Nobody else got the Tuesday scoop, or wanted it except Carla (who gets what she pleases at KOMO). Dem Chair Dwight Pelz dismissed Morris and the Patty is vulnerable.Did Johnson get Morris from an interview by a Fisher talk host or news reporter? No, she was given it from Radio Free Washington, before it was broadcast or posted on the web. We clamored to find RFA on the dial and found to be a podcast from the Evergreen Freedom Foundation, the well-fed, right-wing, Washington State political “watchdog” PAC (Pain in the Ass Conservatives) who’s posing as a media outlet these days.
The Morris interview was conducted by our friend, Scott “The Piper” Sinclair (whose business card reads, “Journalist”) and a guy named Steve with an unfortunate laugh.
Through Carleen, the hard right EFF has a direct line onto the news casts on KOMO and KVI.
Their partisan radio show plays terrestrially in barns and tractor dashboards all over E. Washington and Northern Idaho. The Piper says he’s a hack, but he's really a flack (as you’d expect of someone taking a paycheck from the rich, partisan hard-right, activist organization).
Dori Monson (KIRO m-f, 12-3p) gave Morris a lap dance today, and got the same soundbites. Always directionally mindful of political gusts, Morris is selling his new book 'splainin’ how to rid the nation of the subversive Congress and ultimately the tyrannical schvartz in the White House.
This was a re-tred of what Morris said in February- except then he decreed Murray would “likely” be whipped by wealthy unknown Bellingham businessman, Paul Aker, who buys his way onto KGMI (Saturdays, 8-9a) with a show, The American Innovator, a self-serving droner in which thumps his own company).
Pardon us for a moment while we shoot the messenger. Not hard with the fatuous, sleaze-bag Dick Morris- he’s the wrongest man in politics. He’s been wrong so many times, his prophetics are viewed in reverse by real political flacks and hacks. If Dick says it’s so… it probably ain’t. If Morris says it’ll hoppen… usually, it turns to wha’ hoppen???His soothsaying always synchs with a book release. “Hillary Clinton is your next president,” he told Hannity twice a week during 2007-8 as he tub-thumped his latest Clinton-bashing screedo. His major re-group when Hillary lost the primary was unremarked by him or his conservative media cohorts.
He’s ubiquitously and fatly on Fox News and other conservative media to sell his product line, predicting with insider cynicism and great authority what the low-information audiences wants to happen.against the Clintons.
No need to jump on the Wayback Machine to find newer headlines about Morris' sexual peckerdilloes. After the tabloidulous Clinton-era shrimping episode that should have banished him forever from political credulity, his name was re-mired in 2007 as a client of DC madam Deborah Jeane Palfrey.
If you don't know that after all these years, you don't know Dick. Why does anyone listen to him?
The moral outrage crowd like the EFF, the GOP, Billo Reilly, Dori Monson, Michael Medved, Sean Hannity are conveniently blind to the plain guile of this dishonorable, self-indulgent, poop-snade.
Maybe it's because their dittohead audiences are always eager to be fed like Périgord ducks, and they're too busy and greedy devouring the fat livers to entertain the integrity it would take to disconnect from the man.
