Okay, That Left a Bruise

Here is the video of Marsha Blackburn stumbling through the MSNBC interview with David Shuster (I transcribed parts of it yesterday):

This video cuts off before the interview got to another black-and-blue grilling of the Tennessee Republican concerning from whom she gets her information about political conditions in Iraq.

Here is some more transcript regarding Ms. Blackburn's connections to a Chaplain who obviously sends her sensitive reconnaissance from inside the machinery of Iraqi governance (since so many Chaplains have a role to play in Iraqi's internal affairs):
Shuster: Have you been to Iraq recently?

Blackburn: I have been, not been to Iraq in the past twelve months. My last trip into Iraq --

Shuster: Okay, so, just, just based on General Petraeus, that's how you can say there has been local progress made in Iraq?

Blackburn: No. No. No. No. No. I stay in touch. I stay in touch with those that are deployed. As a matter of fact, I emailed last night with a constituent of mine who is a Chaplain in Iraq ....

Shuster: What contact has the Chaplain had with local Iraqi political leaders?

Blackburn: He is in touch with them on a regular basis.
For what? So that Iraqi officials might discuss the theology of Christian pastoral care in a military theater?


  1. Isn't that one of the secondary objectives of the Iraq war?
    1. Get the oil.
    2. Convert the heathens.

  2. Brutal. I loved it. I don't know why Shuster doesn't have that hour instead of Carlson. He's ten times smarter, and ballsy as hell.

  3. Has anyone called Rep Tanner to see if he knew Jeremy Bohannon's name?

  4. Shuster, as it turns out, is not so bright, or he's another of the outright dishonest and biased dem lap dog. The soldier was not from her district. And if the HUGE media empire of msnbc is so inept at investigations, they cannot be trusted for reliability. If it was an intentionally dishonest attack - for shame. But, we are seeing rather clearly CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS all grossly biased, and dishonest. No wonder FOX is growing so much, as the aformentioned losers keep losing viewers.
