CNN's Stepford Wives React to the Truth About Libya

Zero Hedge sets up the scene:

Former CIA analyst Michael Scheuer appeared on CNN and told his lovely blonde and brunette anchors the truth about what is really happening. The hilarious Stepford Wives reaction and the unprecedented cognitive dissonance the ensues is worth the price of admission.



  1. Great post. They ARE carrying the water...for the delusional and inept.

  2. "Nations are a lot like people-- they don't want to admit to making mistakes."

    That's funny he mentions it because it turns out that nations ARE people, their governments are not composed of divine entities but mortal, erring individual people who, just as Michael Scheuer hints at, tend to behave as people with egos and self-esteem issues.

    Man, that really changes up the analysis of all of this stuff, I guess, when you accept the fact that nations ARE people...

    Yellow Blouse got super sassy, by the way, and brought a bit of "street" to her game as she gestured wildly with her hands and arms (almost gang-signish) and leaned toward the camera as if to be physically imposing to the Bearded Analyst.

    "I'm certainly not carrying anyone's water and I will assure you of that" says the Black Dress.

    So, is that kind of the same pussy-willow form of argument of "One could argue", where one IS arguing but one doesn't want to actually be held responsible for the argument being made? In this case, she is not making an argument and doesn't plan to lend any "assurance", yet still wants to benefit from the idea that she has granted such assurance and proven she is not carrying the water of Obama?

  3. Looks like Micheal won't be back with these two bimbos. Talk about air heads.
    American people love crap like this where they are told what the story line is, like ostriches their heads are in the sand. By the way, the rebels fighting Gaddafi, are certainly organized as they already have a central bank and oil company ready doing work. Educated Mujaheddin, and CIA connections to boot.

  4. I would have loved to have seen the bimbos' reactions during the break. I bet there was a lot of swearing going on.

    I'm surprised he was even on. It's not like his views are secret.

  5. Hilarious! He'll never be on again.

    What a couple of idiots. They interview an expert (based on their own evaluation) and when he tells them what he thinks and it doesn't match their naive view of the world, they get all huffy, fold their arms and tell him to leave.

    I can't understand why nobody watches CNN anymore.

  6. I like how they tried to disconnect this from the economy. How is squandering more money on a soi-disant humanitarian war NOT squandering money? How is it not linked to the ailing economy's state? I guess they'll interview Krugman next who'll tell them it's just a dandy means of stimulating it and everything's OK.
