The View From Hell: Nicole Wallace And Hostility To Conservative Women

For a long time before I became a reporter, I never paid attention to bylines — the announcement of who wrote a given article. That all changed for me one day when I was sitting at Jimmy T’s Diner in Washington, D.C., reading a hate-filled “fashion” column that was nothing more than the projection of angry liberal political views. It was so awful that I wanted to know who wrote it. The author, Robin Givhan, of course went on to win a Pulitzer. I’m part of a profession that rewards liberal political views above most all else.

Along similar lines, the woman who made me pay attention to the names of political operatives is Nicole Wallace. Her behavior of simultaneously serving as Sarah Palin’s aide while dishonestly sabotaging her to a gleeful liberal media was so disloyal, self-aggrandizing and despicable that I decided to write her name down so I would remember to be wary of anyone who ever hired her.

Nicole Wallace was recently hired by The View, a talk show that tends to feature three or four super-liberal hosts and then, supposedly, one conservative one. That’s always been a silly model, considering how unfair a fight it is and how it “others” conservative women despite the fact that we exist in the same percentages as liberal women.

But the notion that Nicole Wallace could serve in this role is laughable and speaks to how completely out of touch with reality the producers of The View are. Of course, they also brought back a host who believes that fire can’t melt steel, so they’re not known for their grasp of reality.

Let’s get the Nicole Wallace business out of the way. Basically there were two staffers on the John McCain for President campaign back in 2008 that leaked unhelpful information to pliant media like broken sieves. If various accounts are to be believed, these individuals were Steve Schmidt and Nicole Wallace. You can look at some of the evidence for those now-widely accepted claims here. Stuff like:

In a nutshell, the controversy centers on this sentence from the VF profile: “Some top aides worried about her mental state: was it possible that she was experiencing postpartum depression? (Palin’s youngest son was less than six months old.)”

Now, I’ve been around enough campaign operatives to know that at some point on flailing campaigns, many of them start worrying about whether they’ll be blamed for the results of the election. So they start positioning themselves as smarter, better, wiser, whatever, than everyone else, most importantly the candidates themselves. There is nothing new about this.

But the McCain-Palin campaign was known for taking this to astronomically ridiculous levels. Doing stuff like, oh, I don’t know, personally purchasing expensive clothing for the VP candidate and then claiming it was all the VP’s idea. Or suggesting that the candidate had post-partum depression. Or completely failing to prepare a candidate for interviews and then suggesting that the candidate was the problem. You know, that kind of positioning that goes light years beyond normal positioning. If the leakers had spent a fraction as much time doing decent jobs as they spent talking crap, well, John McCain still would have probably lost. But either way, what reprehensible behavior for campaign aides.

I tried to find a title for this post that really captured my true feelings. Dick Morris is one of my least-favorite people. He used to be a political consultant working for Bill Clinton, but for nearly twenty years now he has made a career out of dishing dirt on Bill and Hillary. He’s been doing that ever since he got canned in the middle of Bill’s 1996 reelection campaign for cavorting with a toe-sucking hooker.

Even so, at least Morris waited until the election was over to turn on his client. Former GOP campaign consultants Nicolle Wallace and Steve Schmidt began dishing alleged dirt on Sarah Palin during the campaign, and both of them have made new careers out of bashing Republicans in general and Sarah Palin in particular ever since.

After what they did to Sarah Palin nobody in their right mind would hire either of them to run a campaign, so now they get paid to talk trash about the people they used to work for. And they do this while presenting themselves as conservative Republicans.

They are quislings – one of the lowest forms of life on earth. Respectable people should have nothing to do with scum like that.

The hiring of Nicolle Wallace as a co-host of The View makes me wish I was a regular viewer so I could stop watching in protest. But since I never watch the show anyway I doubt that ABC gives a rat’s ass what I think.

I guess I’ll just have to wait for karma to catch up to her.

    Campaign staff should be required to sign iron-clad non-disclosure agreements that prohibit them from dishing dirt.

  2. The Klown says:

    Wallace and Schmidt were the primary sources for the book and movie Game Change.

    The media companies have to pay off their debts to the quislings. Putting this loon on the view is like her final blackmail money or something. When you turn informer the goodies only last so long and then you have to go and find new blackmail opportunities. Morris set himself up as an online idiot savant reporting crap he heard at the coffee shop when the juice ran out. Wallace wanted to be on tv. There is some kind of shakeout going on with the implosion of Brock-o-bama in DC and it is getting strange. This is very important to the leech and barnacle class of Washington but the rest of us don’t give a shit.

      I have always been bothered by the incestuous revolving door relationship between politics and the media.

      Cops and crooks shouldn’t hang out together. Pick a side and stay there.

        • Lulu says:

          Other “professions” have standards of privacy and ethics that workers must follow. Lawyers, doctors, nurses, government workers etc all have to meet those standards. For some reason political and media don’t. It is one of the reasons they are so hated. It is the lowest form of behavior to violate trust like this. I knew a woman years ago that yakked and gave out private privileged info she got from her job. She was so shunned she had to leave town. The DWS gossip is an example of this. If the WH and Dems don’t like her just get rid of her. The nasty unethical ruination is part of their fun and that comes from the freakishly impotent petty top. As they loose control it will get worse.

          So Carney’s the Bob Beckel of CNN now ? Maybe networks shouldn’t hire former admin staff until that President is out of office, and Carney’s a professional spin machine for Obama.

      We need the option to choose cable a la carte. Before I thought we just needed the chance to pick what channels we pay for but now I can see we need the opportunity to individually pick which shows we pay for.

      One of the most common reactions to management and systemic failure is to swing the pendulum the other way and attempt micro management to correct course. It is a knee jerk reaction out of fear and loss of control. The first step is panic and terror. Second is to blame the “idiots” who did not do “it” right (DWS as target is a good example) and the nastier the butt covering is the more terrified they are. Thirdly the primary failure at the top SAY they will be handling everything themselves since no one else has enough brains, intuitive ability, guts, blah, blah, blah to get it done. The fact that they have ignored, made problems worse, and don’t know what the hell they are talking about never deters them. Analysis, breaking down the problem, alternate solutions are never considered. When I saw the face of that general tell Congress Brock-o-bama was going to decide operational actions in SYRIA on a case by case basis, he knew, I knew, and pretty much everyone who has ever worked in management systems knew, the WH is heading for the cliff. They are pissing their pants they are so scared.

          That is it exactly. Jimmy Carter did it as the shit hit the fan too. Carter and Hitler actually tried but Choom boy won’t. He will give up in 30 minutes and go look for a snack or get pissier. I expect some firings, resignations, overdoses, nervous collapses, etc.

    Ouch! MSNBC Wonders If DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz Is “Political Kryptonite:

    • Lulu says:

      Debbie is the proxie goat for Hillary. When does the full on internecine Dem war start? I’m not sure “Get the Jews” (in the words of Bronco “Really”) is the best place for the WH to start but we already know their judgement is impaired due to blinding terror of the polling. LOL.

    • DandyTIger says:

      Yep, it’s a done deal. All set up. None of the issues even need to be true. And she knows it’s over. Will be interesting to see what she does to try to survive the ouster.

    • DandyTIger says:

      Karma. She carried their water, threw Hillary under the bus for them, and all the rest. Getting thrown under the bus from the Chicago WH idiots is inevitable. Everyone else in DC should know that by now. Time to bail people. Leaving on your own is better than being destroyed.

    • DeniseVB says:

      My son used to live in DWS’ Florida district and none of his friends or neighbors had a clue how she kept getting re-elected ? Nobody liked her in the middle/working class neighborhoods.

      • lildoggy4u says:

        She’s my Rep., she lives in a pretty safe, liberal district. She’s got a strong Jewish voting block and panders to the gay community (they’ve got the moolah). But we see her as ineffective for us especially since she’s taken that DNC roll.

  10. Kathy says:

    I’ve seen Wallace on tv and she isn’t very interesting. I predict this won’t last. On a separate . note and dating myself, pundits talk about the 190 or so strikes we’ve made on Isis so far as if that were a lot. It’s over a five week period–my husband reminded me that we did 200 a day in Vietnam and not so great, carpet bombing. But there is no historical memory.

    • leslie says:

      There is “no historical memory” because for these “folks”, NOTHING existed before they did. Just give them their video games, CSI and The West Wing and that’s all they need to make policy.

      During the Korean war we would do about 240 plus sorties up over the Yalu river… least twice a day, sometimes more. Of course the Korean war never happened.

    Looks like my guess was right

    Francois, 53, was released by the terrorists earlier in the year after being held for 10 months. He suggested that the militant organization put the captives through numerous mock executions. He stressed that, “They did not realise that this time it was the real thing,” reported the Blaze.

    • SHV says:

      “aggravated assault”???
      For the lawyers. Have the terms “assault” and “battery” become legally equivalent? I thought that aggravated assault meant the threat of violence with a deadly weapon (or serious bodily harm) vs aggravated battery, inflicting the injury with a deadly weapon,etc.

    • leslie says:

      I swear I read Cardinal Dwyer . . . assault charges. lol And perhaps it isn’t funny, but it is unseemly that we have football cardinals and church cardinal all involved in abuse

      Yes, the Dems ran a well oiled oily machine and it worked. It’s how we got Obama twice, it’s just too bad they didn’t use these methods on a better candidate.

    • DandyTIger says:

      Very interesting problem. As the article mentions, the Dems have a centralized system which fits their ideology. The Repubs tend to not like that approach, so they are behind in these systems. The solution is actually not that hard, quite like the way advertising works among TV networks, national TV distributors, down to local cable or there networks. You have a central framework but local databases/clouds. Local groups only share in the aggregate. The central shares what is collected from outside sources and what’s shared in the aggregate. Algorithms work on local data but don’t share otherwise. Best of both worlds. Very doable. Kind of shocking that the Repubs don’t have such things.

      • Somebody says:

        It sounds simple, but the R’s don’t have a lot of tech talent. Most of silicon valley leans left and the vast majority of the brilliant young tech minds also lean left. I’m sure there are some out there, but there is also a trust issue……because most of silicon valley leans left and most of the young techies lean left.

        • DandyTIger says:

          I’ve found they also have a bit of an old school big, old fashion, IBM-like sensibility. It’s just not in their DNA to work with a small, agile group that can solve such problems. And sadly it’s just not very likely that a big, established, likely defense contractor type, corp can solve these type of problems. IOW, there’s a cultural barrier.

          • Somebody says:

            Absolutely you are correct and if they can’t figure that out then they will be left in the dust. They’ve been getting their asses handed to them for years, going all the way back to 2004. They’ve been slow to adopt technology. The Obama campaign took Dean’s 2004 blueprint and built upon it and then spent four years perfecting it for the 2012 campaign. I’m sure they’ve perfected it even more since then.

            The Obama people had micro-targeting down by election day 2012. I experienced it in my household. My husband is a registered independent and also a union member, because you’re crazy to be an ATC and not be a union member just in case the unthinkable happens. So naturally he was on their list early on. They knew I’m a registered R and they let me know it, quite snitty with me several times.

            The best though was on actual election day. My eldest daughter was away at grad school and voted by absentee. Even though she sent it in early her ballot was in a stack being questioned so it wasn’t put in the system until late in the evening of election day. We know this because this is a small town, people talk and we knew people at the SOE office.

            Anyway, with her ballot outstanding the Obama people saw a chance for a vote, even though my daughter is a registered R. They sicked the dogs on my household. Based on their information and my daughter’s age they zeroed in on certain issues. People were calling left and right. Several people showed up at my door, each and every one of them armed with the information I was a registered R and had already voted. Some of them were downright nasty to me, especially the planned parenthood lady that wanted to discuss my daughter’s reproductive rights with her. That lady was nasty, nasty to me and had me pegged as some far rightwing nut job……she set me off and the two of us got into it. They sent two very nice college age students after that, but they didn’t give up until the polls closed. They all seemed convinced I was lying about my daughter not being there and the fact that she’d already turned in her absentee ballot.

            I’ve worked on campaigns before and I’m telling you their data was impressive, even if they annoyed the hell out of me, I was impressed. A friend of my son’s was high up with the Obama campaign in this state, true believer that one. After the election in conversation the targeting of my daughter came up and I was given a brief explanation as to the how, what and why’s…..color me even more impressed. We never heard from the Romney people aside from mailers…….they were truly left in the dust with that failed ORCA. Was it sabotage? Possibly, it was clearly a spectacular failure.

          • DandyTIger says:

            Basically with this sort of system in place, even if the Repubs could win by 2 or 3 points, the Dems will win. And here’s the thing, the vote is almost always going to be within 2 to 3 points, at least for president. So the only question is, will this system and organization evaporate with OFA/Obama, or will it carry forward.

          • DandyTIger says:

            And a corollary to the above question, if OFA/Obama own that system and let it be used, they will continue to own the Dem party.

          • Somebody says:

            Those are exactly my thoughts, do they own it and what are they going to do with it. My understanding is that they in fact do own it. It was created for them by their little tech dream team and has been polished by additional little techies.

            So then I think they will continue to own the dem party. At least until some other enterprising individuals come up with an alternative.

    All that is happening with The View may be explained with the leaving of executive producer Bill Geddie (Republican?), the sweet little chubby man that always stood in the back of the room, and the entrance of Bill Wolff, who is in charge of Maddow’s show.

    • cynic says:

      Nicolle was a semi-regular on ‘Morning Joe’. She, like Joe, loves to criticize the Republicans. A couple of weeks ago, Joe was on a rant and would start every show with a little monologue calling out his Republican friends. It got so bad, that I couldn’t tolerate him and turned off the tv.

      They’re just like a bunch of kids; making their snide little comments and grinning. When they announced that she got the ‘View’ gig, they had her on, and then on the first day of the show, they had her on for a phone interview again.

      Her and Mika seem to be best friends. Now, I ask you, IS Nicolle Wallace a Republican?

    I could go on for a while about Nicolle Wallace. And yes, she spells is with two l’s because she’s a moron. Here’s a story that sums it up, however.

    Wallace appeared on MSNBC (her future employer) a few weeks before the election. She was asked about something John McCain said, which she claimed she hadn’t heard. When they said they could play the tape for her, she responded she would like them to do just that. Well, they didn’t have it ready.

    I was dumbfounded. Had Wallace actually caught MSNBC without any video evidence or altered tape at all? Well no. It turns out that they just didn’t expect to be challenged by anyone. Nicolle Wallace was stupid enough not to know what the hell her candidate says then tries to stall by incorrectly challenging a news organization’s validity.

    This is the person charged with running Palin during the campaign.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Fox always has the tape available for a political operative to debunk. With Obama it’s just so easy (as Megyn and Greta have often said “Hey, we have the tape, we’re happy to play it for you).

    This may not appeal to some of you, but my honey and I recently discovered the TV series “Homicide Hunter” on the ID network, (whatever that is). Here’s the thing, it’s not a great production….lots of little slips and misses….but the dialogue of the “star” of the show, a retired police lieutenant from Colorado Springs PD, of all places, is classic and spot on. If you’ve ever wondered how cops REALLY talk and think, you’ve got to watch it. When I listen to Lt. Joe Kenda speak, I can almost smell the stale cigarette smoke and taste the three day old coffee found in most police squad rooms and precinct stations. Really, really authentic. And surprisingly basic.
