Epic Socialist FAIL

From The Hill:

"Sen. Bernie Sanders (Socialist-Vt.) said he would look to block a merger between NBC and Comcast, citing the decision last week by MSNBC to suspend liberal anchor Keith Olbermann. [which has since been reversed]

Sanders said Comcast's attempt to acquire NBC from General Electric would result in "another media giant run by a Republican supporter of George W. Bush."

Also from The Hill:

"Comcast chief executive Brian Roberts made more than $76,000 in political contributions to Democrats since 2006, compared to $13,500 in contributions to Republicans. Comcast vice president and top lobbyist David Cohen made about $180,000 to Democrats in the same period, compared to $12,000 to Republicans, according to OpenSecrets.org.

Cohen also helped raise more than $6 million for Obama’s election campaign.

There have also been political endorsements. On Thursday, the same day the merger was announced, Roberts expressed his support of Obama’s healthcare package. It was the first time Roberts took a position on the issue. He had been invited to attend the White House job summit that day, but could not make it."

Not in favor of media consolidation either but...Ooops.

Oh. Now I recognize it. The double comment fail. Brilliant.

Actually I recognized it, but just because speedy, second-baseman Brian Roberts (jk) contributed more to Democrats than Republicans (during an election the Democrats won) doesn't make the Socialist candidate's comment a fail. He probably is a Republican, who supported George W Bush...when George W Bush was in power. He just knows when to back the right horse, that's all.
