The Newest Darling Of The Moonbatosphere Needs To Learn About Proportionality

With this failure to grasp the basics, Rachel Maddow definitely is a fit for MSNBC.

But while we're on the wild wide world of scary tour, of course, Israel has started another war. A third straight day of airstrikes on Gaza, the death toll now more than 300 people. Israel says they are doing this to prevent Palestinians from firing rockets into southern Israel. First of all, there's the question of proportionality as to how many people those rockets have killed versus how many people the Israeli bombing has now killed. There's also the issue of effectiveness. In the midst of this massive air assault killing hundreds of civilians in Gaza, a rocket fired from Gaza today killed a man and wounded seven in the Israeli town of Ashkelon. Effectiveness. Three Israelis were also stabbed by a Palestinian in a Jewish settlement in the West Bank today. Is there a military solution to this problem?

Maybe. Maybe not. But when a dimbulb like this is touted as a rising star on a cable network that is nothing more than a broadcast version of the Daily Kos, what does that say?
