Self-immolation? Look who's stepping up to play defense for Hillary on ABC as Steph falters

You would think that the on-air talent at ABC News would get a clue and realize that the position of defensive lineman for Team Hillary carries with it risk of injuries. But that hasn’t stopped ABC News (and NPR, too) political analyst Cokie Roberts  from shamelessly shilling for Hillary. Weasel Zippers highlights some cringe-inducing apologetics:

 “I don’t think anybody votes on whether a candidate answers questions or not.”

 

Yes, hair is very important, too. And staged photo ops. Who needs actual answers to questions? Too bad Jeb Bush didn’t realize this.

 

And those emails” Pfft! Who cares? Only about “3 people” according to Cokie:

 

And the real reason people don’t like Hillary is because of sexism:

 

And Hillary “does her homework” and knows “where every pothole in New York” is. She also knows where those emails went and what was in them, but we don’t.

 

For those who don’t know, Roberts comes from a genuine Democrat political dynasty. Her father, Hale Boggs, was majority leader of the House Democrats. When he was killed in a plane crash, her mother, Lindy Boggs, inherited the family business and was elected and re-elected by then-deep blue Louisiana voters. Her brother, Tommy Boggs, is one of the top lobbyists in DC. You don’t get any more Establishment than her family.

Like George S, Roberts has considerable personal charm and is well liked by her media colleagues all over the political spectrum.  But her shameless shilling for Hillary might be just a ,ittle but out of step with the tastemakers on the left who rule media.
