MSNBC employee reveals his breeding--pace, George Bernard Shaw-- by how he conducts himself in an argument:
LAWRENCE O‘DONNELL, MSNBC SR. POLITICAL ANALYST: ....The fact of the matter is that.... John O‘Neill‘s own sources, like Larry Thurlow, turned out to be nuts. ....
It‘s one of the many lies that the book advances. To me, the most interesting lie, John O‘Neill, that I would submit to you that you should is, you make a lying claim....
That‘s a lie, John O‘Neill. Keep lying. It‘s all you do. ....
....Which is not in John O‘Neill‘s book, because it‘s a lie. ....
That‘s a lie. It‘s another lie. That‘s a lie.
....You lie in that book endlessly....
....You lie about documents endlessly. .... You‘re just lying about it.
....And you lied about Thurlow‘s Bronze Star. You lied about it as long as you could until “The New York Times” found the wording of what was on the citation that you, as a lying writer, refused to put in your pack-of-lies book.
.... Disgusting, lying book.
.... You have no standards, John O‘Neill, as an author. And you know it. It‘s a pack of lies. You are unfit to publish.
.... He just lies. He just spews out lies.
.... you liar. Point to his name, you liar.
.... You just spew lies.
.... I hate lies.
....They‘re proven lies....O‘Neill is a liar. He‘s been a liar for 35 years about this. And he found other liars to...
.... Everybody who was on that boat with Kerry says all of this stuff is a lie.
.... They are lying somewhere.
....Just tell me the initials, you liar.
.... Creepy liar.
... liar who makes things up.
....because you want the lie. That‘s how you make your....
BUCHANAN: ....Here to look at the very latest polls and see what they mean is pollster Frank Luntz. And still with us is mercurial MSNBC political analyst Lawrence O‘Donnell.
FRANK LUNTZ, POLLSTER: Well, I‘m afraid to comment, because, Lawrence, who I like very much and I enjoy his company, is probably going to call me a liar five times.
LUNTZ: I have got to tell you something.
I will be very grateful 10 days from now when this election is over, because all this yelling and screaming and this intensity of hatred from one side to another is out of control. And I have got to tell you, in walking the streets of either swing states like Iowa or Ohio, or New York, L.A., people have just had it with all the yelling and all the—it‘s crap. It‘s too much.
Which I'm sure is all George W. Bush's fault for being a divider, not a uniter.
