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.

(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
