For the love of Mike, here we go again

For the love of Mike, here we go again
Am watching The Ed Show this evening, and can't help but suggest that Ed slow down and think a little. On this show, he was screaming about Dems left and right -- Reid has betrayed us, Eric Holder is incompetent, etc., etc.

The ink is barely dry on the Inauguration Proclamation, and already, Ed is whipping his audience into a rage against the administration and Senate through not only his television show, but also his radio show. Haven't we learned anything from the damage we did to ourselves leading up to 2010? Apparently not. There is a way to discuss these things on 'the professional left' that is constructive, not destructive. Please, Ed, calm the eff down.

Yep ... aren't there enough hair-brained GOP schemes to rant about??

Indeed, no shortage there. And to be clear, I'm not saying don't talk about our own weaknesses, but look at the big picture and don't have the usual suspects on who are no doubt wearing old "Kucinich 2012" t-shirts under their clothes.

I watched that too and thought the same thing.

While I quietly rage about Harry Reid I do not need any more negativity force fed to me by my "allies" on the left. As a result I have almost completely blocked out the MSNBC lineup for most of the week. The surprising exception has been Lawrence O'Donnell who doesn't seem to be in as deep a funk as the rest.

Did 2010 teach them nothing???

Glad that we stopped watching Ed back after the debates.

I can't watch him. I don't want a left version of Rush's outraged bellowing. Some people enjoy the perpetual outrage. Cenk and Olbermann were launched when MSNBC realized the audience for left anti-Obama griping is pretty small. I guess they wanted to keep one around.
