NBC Declares ‘Progressive Hero’ Elizabeth Warren Hillary’s ‘Secret Weapon’

After hailing Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren as a “progressive champion” for Hillary Clinton on Thursday, on Friday, NBC’s Today doubled down as co-host Savannah Guthrie led the show by cheering the left-wing lawmaker formerly endorsing the presumptive Democratic nominee: “Clinton’s secret weapon?…Is Warren on the VP short list? The speculation that has the political world spinning.”

    I hope Trump picks Scott Brown then.

      Hey thanks for the Stone Roses. It’s too bad we weren’t a gay couple because you could totally make me a mixtape.

      • dance…dancetotheradio

        I would totally make you a mixtape, man.

          Hey you two crazy kids (and anyone else listening), I’m thinking about re-compiling all the albums and singles that appear on the KROQ top 106.7 countdown for the years 1980-1987.
          I did this about 12 years ago, but I now have higher bit rate copies, so I was thinking of redoing it at 320 MP3.
          I’d do lossless FLAC but I’m not yet insane. 🙂
          Example: http://radiohitlist.com/KROQ/KROQ-1981.htm

          I’ll put it on one of my servers to DL if there’s any interest.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            That would be awesome!
            As someone who listened to records and tapes for most of my life I don’t see the point of FLAC other than for archiving master tapes.
            I’ve heard more hidden nuance in mp3s than I ever heard on vinyl.

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            No kidding!

            I used to rip from vinyl several years back (getting things in digital that previously only existed in analog), and when you are dealing with analog ANYTHING you had better have almost perfect conditions, and high end equipment, before you will approach anything on CD-ROM.
            The only exception to that was when you were dealing with some of the early CDs and the record companies were getting the equalization curves wrong, and some of those sounded crappy, buy almost anything remastered for digital in the last 10-years is damn near as good as it gets.

          • El Martyachi

            I like analogue tech. As recently as.. 2007 I

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            Dirty?
            You mean the signal-to-noise ratio.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            Grainy maybe?

          • El Martyachi

            I liked the grainy inconsistencies… sure… the noise. They feel organic. Flipping the disk halfway through and blowing the dust off the needle was kinda nice too. And the disks are like having movie posters.

            Plus.. USA.. USA!

            American Technology- The CED system was envisioned and manufactured (all discs and the RCA players) entirely in the U.S.A., and it was the last major electronic entertainment format to have this distinction.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            I like analogue tech as well but there’s a particular Motorola chip that has me flummoxed these days.
            It’s a one shot that I can’t seem to get to trigger on an oscilloscope.
            Next week I’m going to try to bread board it and see if I can get it to work.

          • El Martyachi

            … need more music in my life.

    • jack burns

      I hope he picks Mr T.

  • Raymond Hietapakka

    Warren once suckered some poor old woman out of her home for a lousy 30 Ginos, then flipped the house 5 months later for 140…ya…they really care about women and the elderly…

    • Brett_McS

      Unfortunately – and this is the case for lots of issues that could be a problem for Hillary – Trump can’t make hay with it because he did something quite similar. “Hillary” is the best argument for Trump and vice versa.

  • Norman_In_New_York

    This is what happens when NBC reporters install themselves in Fantasyland.

  • B__2

    The day after Hillery announces her as the VP candidate, Fauxahontas will pull out her secret weapon: proof that she is 117% native american lineage, which will cause cause an implosion in Trump and force him to accede to Clinton winning the Presidency without an election. As if.

  • Tom Forsythe
    • DavidinNorthBurnaby

      So, Hitlery is crooked, that won’t matter to Fauxcahontas if she can get to be VPOTUS and get her snout into the Big Trough.

    • jack burns

      Dutch boy hair and those crazy eyes. All she needs is sweat pants and an ankle tattoo and she’s ready.

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      Did anyone catch the double entendre when she said we have to stop that awful Bill?

  • Brett_McS

    Run, Little Running Bear, run!

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      Too bad about that suicide bomber, ’cause I was really getting into that chant.
      Catchy!

      • Brett_McS

        Something about Discus; it won’t delete a link – the one I pasted by mistake.

        • DavidinNorthBurnaby

          Yes, it freaked out when I tried to post a comment earlier. Got the strangest sceen.

    • jack burns

      Huma will have to do double carpet munching duty.

  • barryjr

    The fake native American and the fake champion of women’s rights, sounds good to me.

    • simus1

      An aged sickly criminal sociopath choosing another even redder sociopath for her VP running mate has a certain soap opera party uniting logic to it.

  • NoBamaYoMama

    One problem with secret weapons, sometimes they IMPLODE!

    It’s gonna be glorious!!

  • DavidinNorthBurnaby

    Considering NBC’s ratings I’m surprised anybody noticed.

  • Alain

    She strikes me as just another Hollywood Indian. Eastern tribes had no war bonnet, ever, and for the few plains tribes that did, it was restricted to great and successful male warriors. Of course in Hollywood all the make-believe Indians wear it, and I believe this is what the cultural marxists call cultural appropriation.

  • jack burns

    2 stiffs without an accomplishment between them, the perfect democratic ticket.

  • ghost of benghazi

    Secret weapon? If she does that she will never get a word in edgewise. The Indian – feather not dot – talks a mile a minute. Also she has to pick a Mexican to try to shore up the drift to Trump. Mind you that would piss off the Blacks and they would continue to drift to Trump. If she picks a man he will have to be pyjama boy so he does not over shadow her. This will cause more men to dump her and drift to Trump. It is going to be long hot summer for her.

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      Did you know that the speaker of the house is third in line for the Presidency?

  • Hard Little Machine

    What the Clinton News Network forgets is that she’s only appealing to Hillary’s base. She has zero traction with anyone else
