Mitchell, other media cheerleaders breathlessly report rain in Charlotte!/mitchellreports/status/243790708991995904

Where are your pom-poms, Andrea?

As Twitchy reported, Democrats used “weather” as an explanation for the smaller venue for President Obama’s DNC speech tonight. They totally would have filled the stadium. Yeah, that’s the ticket.

Messina: "The decision to move it inside was agonizing. We would have filled it, it would have been standing room only."

But, wait a tic … what’s this?

Not a political statement, but any legit meteorologist was not forecasting widespread rain or severe weather in Charlotte tonight. #DNC2012

A monsoon. Oh, for cripes sake. Howard? Bless your heart. Maybe it’s time for another lesson?

Hmm. Can you tell the difference between “real journalists” and DNC communications director, Daily Kos’s Markos Moulitsas and Democrat strategist/CNN commentator Donna Brazile?
