NewsReal’s Tim and Alissa Birkel have been focusing on rebutting the smears and distortions of MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow. They have created a series chronicling Maddow’s missteps titled “A Spoonful of Saccharine” Explaining the title, the husband-and-wife writing team wrote in their first entry in the series:

Our friend and colleague David Swindle wrote that Rachel Maddow is the Mary Poppins of the left, pleasant and reasonable-sounding enough that she comes off as more reasonable than her actual stance might be. Mary Poppins used a spoonful of sugar to help the medicine go down, but Maddow’s sweetener of choice is something different. Hers is pure fiction: a calorie-and-truth-free artificial sweetener to help the leftist ideology go down. And (with apologies to diet soda aficionados) like most artificial sweeteners something about it tastes wrong, it’s a poor substitute for the real thing, consuming too much can give you a headache, and prolonged exposure can lead to cancer. OK, so that last part of the analogy doesn’t really hold. But observe the artificial truth flavoring her latest show.

    Viewing Maddow for more than five minutes is very difficult. Hers is the most boring opinion show on the tube…My eyes grow heavy just thinking of her…(yawn)…Excuse me…I just …gotta…lie down ..for…a…minute….z z z z z z ….

    Prolonged exposure CAN give you brain cancer, for sure.

    Rachel Maddow is a Bolshevik Alinskyite.

    Look at her picture long enough and you can see the tortured angst just under the surface. Like all the rest of them, you can’t take stands that are crimes against nature and come out of it unscathed…

    Olberman just has that blithering idiot look, in spite of all of “manufactured” jargon and picturesque oratory, just another Godless, bumbling idiot…

    She use’s her show for her personal agenda . A Godless country .

    She looks good. And what the hell, it’s a living.

    The integrity of journalism in America travels thru the likes of the mary poppins of the left,, she exposes more about what’s the real problems in todays American style of governing from the right than any media has done in a very very long time..

    The corporate take over of our nations political system has been exposed by the likes of this very truthful talk show host,,,,,,,,,,,Rock on Rach!!!
    Everyone knows it to by the sounds of these conservatives in here..

    Swindle, your cute little swipes at msnbc are becoming tiresome. Such a superior intellect as yours should certainly be focused on bigger quarry. But your adolescent mind prevails. Horowitz had his conversion; it will be a pleasure to watch your’s when you grow up.

      You know why this is such a tremendously entertaining comment, Sam? I’m this blog’s managing editor, David Horowitz is its Editor-In-Chief. Whose idea do you think it was for NewsReal to go after MSNBC? Just take a guess.

      Horowitz was the one who said that we needed to have someone watching Rachel Maddow regularly. It was my idea to assign Tim and Alissa Birkel to that beat. (And I must say I’ve been quite pleased with their work on this beat.)

      So is it actually Horowitz whose adolescent mind prevails and who needs to grow up?

    You’ve been misspelling Rachel MadCow’s name.

  11. January 20, 2010

    she looks like a tranny!

    When Rachel Maddow was born, her father wanted a boy and her mother wanted a girl. And Rachel disappointed neither of them.

    Rachel- please buy a new outfit.

    The name really is Richard Madcow…and here's some gossip. MSNBC will be airing a "same-sex" marriage on the air on Valentine's Day, with Meghan McCain presiding.

    Richard Madcow and – you guessed it – his Gay Nazi boyfriend Keith Olbermann.

    Need I say more.

    LOL.

    The last time I had such a visceral revulsion to a leftist was when my local daily insisted on publishing Ellen Goodman's column every Saturday morning as the only editorial of the day. I was extremely disappointed when I learned that a website I had a reference for, stopellengoodman.com, was only a ruse. Anybody have a website stoprachelmaddow.com?

    an example of the dyke busting and the flood of garbage destroying America

    Rachel's problem is that, as the old saying goes,she "can't see the forest for the trees", ooooooops!!! I really meant to say that she "can't see anything with her face buried in that beaver trap"
