Sunday Morning Comin' Down -- Early Edition
Here is a handy list of people whose say things that are so consistently wrong and ridiculous that in any other profession they would have been Burt Petersoned long ago...
...but who will nonetheless offered up to the viewing public once again as credible, insightful professionals the Sunday Shows this weekend:
For reasons known only to Shuck Todd's wealth manager, "Meet the Press" will once again drape the tattered, shit-stained mantle of it's long-gone credibility around the shoulders of Hugh Hewitt, but for but for both total yardage and points on the board, ABC's "This Week" wins the Useless Hack title by putting Cokie Roberts and Matthew Dowd and Bill Kristol together again on the same stage.
..."Sunday Morning Futures" on Fox News Channel will let you watch GOP hitman Ed Rollins and disgraced "journalist" Judith Miller make noises at each other.
..."Fareed Zakaria GPS" will point a camera at David Frum, presumably to burble on about how awful it is that some very irresponsible Republican establishment types people who are definitely not David Frum let the Republican party go to pot.
...and the irony of CNN's "Reliable Sources" having Matt Lewis on to pimp a book entitled "Too Dumb To Fail" is thick enough to pound railroad spikes through a cinderblock.
Having documented the same atrocities being perpetrated by many of the same goofs for 11 years now, I have to say the omerta code of the American political teevee industry is fucking amazing. Tens of thousands of employees coming and going at all levels of dozens of organizations, and not a one of them will go on the record anywhere to lay out the details of the corrupt bargains being struck behind closed doors that not only guarantee ghouls like Bill Kristol a job forever, but also guarantee that no one will ever ask any of this menagerie of sock-puppets, toadies and hacks any uncomfortable questions about their horrendous record of being wrong about everything.
