I noted recently that MSNBC host Rachel Maddow had looked at the number of GOP politicians who opposed the Democrat stimulus bill, while taking credit for getting their hands on money from that same bill. So it was no surprise at all to see an exchange along those lines on last weekend’s NBC Meet The Press between Maddow and unsuspecting Republican congressman Aaron Schock of Illinois.
Why Schock should have appeared surprised by the attack is unclear: perhaps he hadn’t done his homework. He can hardly have expected an MSNBC host to be playing the part of GOP cheerleader.
Number one on the list of Maddow’s interview targets is former Veep “Dick” Cheney, who thus far has refused to play ball. Looking at the exchange from Meet The Press, it is not difficult to see why.
