Last week, during the Rays extra inning game against the Angels in Anaheim, Brighthouse Sports Network ran a contest on Twitter to see if someone could guess who would drive in the winning run. I guessed Reid Briggnac cause had been so hot the entire game. And sure enough, he bunted in the go ahead and eventually winning run in the 10th. So I won. I got my package today in the mail.
Out of sheer boredom I popped in to watch a few minutes of Maddow and caught sight of a new phrase she's coining and has already taken off on twitter. (Links: 1, 2)

She coined this to point out Republican hypocrisies. For example when two Republicans came out and said they had affairs, Eric Cantor said about each incident when asked "we must pray for [their families] but what happens to [their] job is up to [their] constituents."

And it's the stuff after the comma that is inciting hatred from Maddow and her TV viewers that sparked this new phrase as they think he's a hypocrite and has double standards.
They're acting holier than thou when they have worse double standards and hypocrisies. It has sparked this tweet from me. Spread the word on our new phrase:
