Today In Republican Detachment Disorder: Ron Fournier, The Sad Clown of Centrism

Who's to blame for Trump?*


Are you severely demented?


From Ron Fournier, who gets a lot of the blindingly obvious stuff about Donald Trump right...

...right up until the inevitable:
There is the awful truth: Trump is not merely the fault of the GOP; he is a reflection of an entire political system, including political journalism. When the political establishment puts polls above people, ratings above accountability, celebrity above credibility, exploiters like Trump prosper.
Ron Fournier:  A man who lives every day up to chin in shit, bitching about how much everyone else smells like poo.

And, no, this is not the first time I have used this analogy :-)

* Thanks for the catch.  Overclocking my fingers this morning.

I think you meant "Who's to blame...."

Of course, Ron "Severe Dementia" Fournier doesn't live up to his chin in shit, he's making prodigious contributions to the sea of shit and flinging it around with abandon himself.

He's not as important as other peddlers of both sides shitcakes, but the idea that he is just a concerned observer of the dynamics he now rues, and not a long-time and continuing active participant in creating it, would be laughable if it wasn't both so pathetic and frightening. What a fucking douche this guy is.

Both siderism didn't create Trumpism, but it allowed it. And Fournier somehow thinks more both siderism will stop Trump.

Like Trump, Fournier is marked by vanity -- he won't ever admit he's been wrong. His ego would collapse. (Same with most of your targets.)

As the brother of two Pullitzer Prize winning journalists, it never ceases to amaze me that the slingers of bullshit and lazy drivel on TV dare to call themselves journalists when they are nothing of the sort. (I won't even mention hate radio since that gets deep into Godwin's land.)
