Andrea Mitchell Is Definitely A Shill For Either The Democrats Or The Republicans

by Sara K. Smith

When was this picture taken, 40 years ago?Someday Andrea Mitchell will publish her memoirs and it will be the most rollicking account of a sassy girl reporter navigating our nation’s halls of power since Barbara Walters’ book came out. It will be all about crazy three-ways with Objectivists and that time she shared a spliff with Spiro Agnew. But in the meantime, everybody is constantly being mean to Andrea Mitchell because she’s always shilling for the other guy.

Way back in late July, when people were oohing and aahing over Barack Obama’s European concert tour with the Decemberists, Andrea Mitchell was making Democrats mad by complaining about lack of press access.

Now Andrea Mitchell is making Republicans mad by passing along speculation that John McCain was not imprisoned in a soundproof dunce cap before he went on Rick Warren’s little religion discussion thingy.

So is this gal actually a “good journalist”? Or is she just a puppet who just reads out loud whatever angry memo she just received from whichever presidential campaign happened to just send one? Time will tell, and in the meantime we await her tales of going bobsledding drunk with Margaret Thatcher.

UPDATE: Oh whoops she already wrote a memoir! Who knew?

Note to Andrea, please don’t tell any stories of having “sex” with Alan Greenspan.

Sen. John McCain’s (R-Ariz.) campaign manager Rick Davis asked Sunday for a meeting with Steve Capus, the president of NBC News, to protest what the campaign called signs that the network is “abandoning non-partisan coverage of the presidential race.”

Seriously, don’t the NBC people know by now that only one party is allowed to have a propaganda wing disguised as a news network? And that party ain’t the Democrats.

So get with the program Ms. Mitchell!

>>Sen. John McCain’s (R-Ariz.) campaign manager Rick Davis asked Sunday

If NBC’s response is anything other than “Choke on cock.”, it should disband its news division.

That photo wasn’t taken 40 years ago, it was simply shot through an entire bolt of silk fabric. It’s a technique that Andrea picked up from Barbara Walters and Cher.

her joker smile rivals heath ledger’s, just say’n…

lilblackcorvette August 18, 2008 at 9:51 am

those hypocrites make me want to puke. What about all those outright lies that they support and use to create ads! Arrogance my ass! McCain is sending emmisaries to Russia. WTF! Talk about outside his paygrade! Will those dicklickers please STFU!

Neilist August 18, 2008 at 9:51 am

[re=61835]4tehlulz[/re]: If it was CBS, it would be “Choke on chock – Goodnight and Good Luck!”

Or if it was MSNBC (Keith The Oberfurheroutrage), it would be “Choke me on chock – Goodnight and Good Luck!”

If it was Faux News (Bill O’Reely), it would be “Choke on my fallafa – while spinning!”

If it was HBO (Deadwood), it would be “Choke on my cock, you cocksucking cocksuckers sucking cock!”

If it was the Sci-Fi Channel, it would be “Choke on my Cylon Cybercock – So say we all!”

[Okay, that last one shows that I'm bored whipping this dead horse.]

Objectivists are selfish in bed because they believe it will result in the most gratifying sex.

Neilist August 18, 2008 at 9:52 am

[re=61842]Terry[/re]: You’re wrong, Terry. It wasn’t an entire bolt of silk fabric.

It was the entire People’s Republic of China.

Working the ref–the old Republican tactic.

Is it just me, or does she look like Nana Visitor from Deep Space 9 in that airbrush extravaganza?

Haha, we in Philadelphia remember her when she had a big nose and brown hair.

Or do I mean a brown nose and big hair?

Don’t hate the playa, hate the referee.

Serse, tho – It’s about damn time the MSM called Wally out on tactic.

jagorev August 18, 2008 at 10:15 am

[re=61831]ManchuCandidate[/re]: Silly human. Alan Greenspan doesn’t have the capability to process emotions like “sex” or “love”. Alan Greenspan has one purpose in life, and that is to kill.

Nasara August 18, 2008 at 10:16 am

I still can’t believe Alan Greenspan gets to tap that ass any time he wants.

loudmouthredhead August 18, 2008 at 10:16 am

[re=61858]Anita Cocktail[/re]: That is awesome.
“She’s gonna make it after all…”

[re=61862]jagorev[/re]: Nono…MAKE a killing. Oh, and eat babies. I guess yours works too.

Do not watch her in HD. There is some serious acne scarring going on.

Any more soft white light to soften her overall hideousness and that picture just looks like a sheet of printer paper…

Canuckledragger August 18, 2008 at 10:36 am

Andrea’s right on this one, because Rick Sanchez got Pastor Rick “I Cannot Tell A Lie [Very Well]” Warren to admit same on last night’s televisual feast called CNN.

You gots to watch your CNN, because the price of FREEDOM is eteral queasiness.

This is George Will stealing Jimmy Carter’s debate briefing book and giving it to Reagan, all over again.

Well, the booth needed airholes, obvs.

I suppose a good reporter has no friends. What about bloggers? Unclear.

[re=61904]Richard Gozinya[/re]: Outrageous indeed! Do you know how long he was in that cone of silence?! FIVE AND A HALF YEARS!

icedog August 18, 2008 at 11:25 am

Apparently he wasn’t in the “cone of silence”, at least for part of Obama’s time on stage… and the McCain campaign seems anxious to squash any speculation about why such a hemmer and hawer as their candidate was able to answer his questions so quickly, almost as if he knew what they were ahead of time… goodness, how could he cheat anyway.. it’s not like there are any magical devices his people could use to contact McCain while he was in his car.. it’s just all crazy talk.

[re=61831]ManchuCandidate[/re]: [re=61864]Nasara[/re]: Pretty sure she married him for his stock portfolio. The thinking woman’s Anna Nicole Smith.

ReverendGreen August 18, 2008 at 11:28 am

This actually angers me that Obama is so retarded he believed Rick Warren and trusted John McCain not to cheat. He agreed to answer questions first and just have McCain wait around for an hour, based solely on a religious person’s word and a Bush acolyte’s integrity. At least Hillary was only dumb enough to believe Bush in 2002 and not John McCain and AN EVANGELICAL CHRISTIAN in 2008.

Twinkle Twinkle Lil Star August 18, 2008 at 11:36 am

Whatever motivation McCain and Davis have, they picked a bad battle to fight here, because Mitchell was right: McCain was not in the Cone of Silence for the duration of Obama’s questioning.

HA HA HA.

In the coming months:

“The suggestion that John McCain, a former prisoner of war, does not understand the U.S. economy is outrageous.”

“The suggestion that John McCain, a former prisoner of war, is proposing an unworkable tax plan is outrageous.”

“The suggestion that John McCain, a former prisoner of war, has an unrealistic energy policy is outrageous.”

“The suggestion that John McCain, a former prisoner of war, is pandering to the right-wing of his party is outrageous.”

Twinkle Twinkle Lil Star August 18, 2008 at 11:42 am

McCain might have been lying about that stupid, fake, contrived cross-in-the-dirt story?!?!

Le gasp!

schaedenfreude!

Twinkle Twinkle Lil Star August 18, 2008 at 11:46 am

so… uh… if McCain was in a motorcade on his way to the church during Obama’s segment, when was the supposed coin toss performed? Did Obama do the coin toss by himself?

Andrea Mitchell Vindicated!

I declare shenanigans. SHENANIGANS!

4tehlulz August 18, 2008 at 11:47 am

ITT suggestions:

“The suggestion that John McCain, a former prisoner of war, is corrupt to the core is outrageous.”

“The suggestion that John McCain, a former prisoner of war, is a war-mongering sociopath is outrageous.”

“The suggestion that John McCain, a former prisoner of war, is banging Joe Lieberman is outrageous.”

“The suggestion that John McCain, a former prisoner of war, is using his prisoner of war history in this campaign is outrageous.”

Canuckledragger August 18, 2008 at 12:04 pm

Poor Pastor Rick. Caught in a Purpose-Driven Lie.

Aurelio August 18, 2008 at 1:28 pm

Andrea Mitchell is Alan Greenspan’s fuck-hole. I’m sorry to break this to you, because of the images that will undoubtedly flood your mind, and ruin your day FOREVER. But some truths need to be told.

NedPepper August 18, 2008 at 2:16 pm

[re=61842]Terry[/re]: I’ve been in the same room with Mitchell, to me her facial skin appears to resemble the cratered surface of the moon. Even though the skin has been drawn up as tight as a form fitting sheet on a queen sized bed, my opinion of course.

Jackie August 18, 2008 at 3:03 pm

Are you sure that it isn’t Leslie Stahl instead of Andrea Mitchell????????????????

thefrontpage August 18, 2008 at 3:42 pm

Who, excatly, is Andrea Mitchell? What does she do?

And why the hell should we care about her?
