Steve Kornacki: Wrong about politics and House of Cards

Steve Kornacki claims House of Cards is unrealistic and therefore not a good show. However even with its embellishments, House of Cards is more realistic than the delusional view of DC that beltway pundits, like Steve, have about how politics really works.

@SteveKornacki doesn't understand politics or House of Cards. His critiques fall flat. I will debunk them now. #Uppers

(1)@SteveKornacki says the narrow makeup of the House 218(D)-216(R) makes Whip=Underwood's murder of Peter Russo not make sense. #Uppers

(2)Underwood already passed education bill Rahm Emanuel style=provoking teacher union president so makeup of House didn't matter. #Uppers

(1)@SteveKornacki said he rejects that DC is involved everything & claims they are rarely involved in local politics like in HOC. #Uppers

(2)Rahm had similar showdown with teacher unions in a similar way in Chicago as mayor after being COS to @BarackObama=wrong, Steve. #Uppers

(3)That undercuts @SteveKornacki's assertion that DC rarely gets involved in local politics like in House of Cards. DC does, a lot #Uppers

(4) Underwood is a sociopath+is not thinking about political pragmatism for his party, he's in it for himself=extreme Joe Lieberman #Uppers

(5) Joe Lieberman sunk Al Gore on military ballot issue in 2000 so he could run in 2004=Similar to Underwood. Steve needs to study #Uppers

+Joe Lieberman lied to Harry Reid about not filibustering a bill w a public option=polled well for (D) voters. Happens a lot, Steve #Uppers

(6) Most politicians are in it for themselves like Francis Underwood. Only those making $ off of partisan delusions say otherwise. #Uppers

In @SteveKornacki's world, the end justifies the means. (D)s want to do the right thing but their hands are tied.THAT's the fantasy #Uppers

Writers of House of Cards know legislation is written by lobbyists+votes bought+deals coerced like Obama's deal with big pharma. #Uppers

This new version of #Uppers is the fantasy. To make $ it has to sell that politics=noble+not cynical like it really is & HOC shows. #Uppers

Even with embellishments, House of Cards=more realistic than the delusions of partisans on @msnbc lying that we still have a say. #Uppers
