Not many people watch Piers Morgan’s show on CNN. But on Wednesday, Morgan interviewed the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, and after listening to the Congresswoman ramble on and on about the Wisconsin recall election, Morgan made a surprising observation that no one else in the media is willing to make.
“I want to play some audio from Debbie Wasserman Schultz,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “It's the kind of audio that is amazing. This is incredible that they could say it. And it's a Piers Morgan. And at the end there's a little treat at the end. Apparently Piers finds a moment of sanity on CNN. The English guy that nobody watches said something to a guest that nobody watches that you should hear.”
WASSERMAN-SCHULTZ: The President deployed his entire machinery grassroots machinery on the ground in Wisconsin. 40 offices. More than a million and a half dollars. Team neighborhoods and team leaders. We put an unprecedented effort of grassroots into this recall. We came up short. The ultimate goal The Governor Walker couldn't adopt his extremist policies, and continue to hurt middle class and working families. We did apparently succeed in flipping the state Senate. The state Senate is likely to be controlled by the Democrat. We're going to be able to stop Governor Walker to pursue those extremist policies. Ultimately we were in part successful, and what we demonstrated here that Democrats are not going to lay down and allow the middle class and working families and workers to get run over and let an extremist governor run amuck...
MORGAN: You keep calling him this great extremist who everyone is apparently terrified of and everything else. He won convincingly. So the only ones it would seem who are laying down to everyone else are the Democrats on this. So how do you get some sort of weird victory out of this.
WASSERMAN-SCHULTZ: There's nothing weird about flipping the state Senate. I mean last year there were recalls of state senators that were put on the ballot, and there were recalls last night. And as a result of those victories, the state Senate has gone to Republican to very likely to being Democrat now. I'm certainly not going to call it a victory. And like I said, we lost the actual recall of the governor.
MORGAN: Let me jump in him. That is my point. If you keep calling him an extremist but you accept that he won. What does that say about the people of Wisconsin. Are they all just a bunch of mad extremists?
WASSERMAN-SCHULTZ: No what it says is that voters look at a recall very differently than they look at a straight up election…
Really? That is the best she can come up with. Obviously voters are going to look at a recall election differently. And considering this is the first time ever that an incumbent governor has won a recall election, it is near impossible for Wasserman-Schultz to make any kind of generalizations about voting behavior.
The fact that CNN would waste airtime on an interview with this woman is insulting to the viewer. Most telling is that as she babbled through the same old tired talking points, even Piers Morgan called her bluff. You know there is a problem when Piers Morgan starts making sense.
“Listen. Let me help CNN before you lose everything that Ted Turner ever tried to do, and he loses his ranch and farm and buffalo and he loses that grand opportunity to finance the new world order through the United Nations,” Glenn said.
“Let me just say the reason why nobody is watching your crappy network, the reason why nobody is watching MSNBC, the reason everyone is tuned out of all news is everybody knows you're full of crap. This person [Debbie Wasserman-Schultz] is full of crap.”
