“The tea party movement and the rebellion that you’ve seen in Massachusetts and across the country, is not because Barack Obama stinks as bad as he does.

Breitbart accused Maddow of being “part of a propaganda campaign to attack the last president … and make him out to be the worst human being that ever walked the face of the earth. And, at the same time, you promoted Barack Obama as the greatest thing that ever walked the earth.”

“The left’s Alinsky tactics — that’s you Rachel Maddow — of isolating Sarah Palin or her poor children and beating on them, beating on them, beating on them … [won’t succeed] with the tea party movement. …You can call them racists and homophobes. But those tricks aren’t working anymore, because people are saying, ‘This is ridiculous.’”
