Is this the drivel that passes for intelligent conversation on MSNBC?

No wonder their ratings keep getting worse.

Via BizPac Review:

….MSNBC host Alex Wagner wondered aloud Friday whether we are “truly living in a sort of, post-post-9/11 generation.”

“Do you think that society is changing and becoming less fearful, or at least, not as alarmed about terrorism and terrorist activity as it was in the months, days and, I guess, few years after 9/11?” Wagner asked guest Amanda Marcotte.

“Absolutely, without any doubt,” the Slate blogger replied. “I think that, for instance, killing Osama bin Laden and finding out that he was kind of a feeble old man living in a bunker made it seem a little silly.”

    OBL wasn’t a young white lacrosse player, so unfair.

    Wikip: “…In January 2007, Marcotte wrote controversial statements about the Duke lacrosse case, including that people who defended the accused were “rape-loving scum”….A few months before all charges were dropped in the case, on a blog post titled “Stuck at the airport again…..” Marcotte wrote in part, “Can’t a few white boys sexually assault a black woman anymore without people getting all wound up about it? So unfair.”…”

    For the record, bin Laden was killed at the ripe old age of 54.

    Idiots like this will become the food of the predators of society. They’d be the first to run saying “save me save me” as the human wolves move in to feast on the stupid sheep.

    Oh, and since “manspreading” is in the news lately, I’m flashing back to Bill Clinton’s infamous “Esquire” cover.

    Is this babbling idiot even 30? Tammy’s right, these snot nose leftist drones know absolutely nothing about the real world and how it works. Growing up with no one ever smacking them down for acting like an idiot. Shameful. Shameful.
