All of this happened one year ago...
One year ago, ABC's chief political analyst, Mr. Matthew Dowd, called President Barack Obama "arrogant and obnoxious" for giving a farewell address. After the internet pureed him, he deleted his Tweets and he and his employers pretended the whole thing never happened. Because transparency! And also too, accountability!
One year ago, Tucker Carleson's newest, bestest sidekick, Mr. Glenn Greenwald, took time away from leading his glorious imaginary proletariat uprising to preemptively sneer at stupid Libtards who might wish to remember and honor the accomplishments of President Barack "Worse Than Bush!" Obama. He also found time to praise the Breitbart Hellmouth. Busy guy.
One year ago, the Political Director for NBC News, Mr. Chuck Todd, was crying in his digital beer because "others continue help ruin the reputation" of his industry. Which only hurts "the democracy". Our thoughts and prayers and so forth.
One year ago, America's Sad Clown of Centrism, Ron Fournier, was hard at work adding a few more notches to his false equivalence belt before the new year got its legs under it. For example:
Yes: Two horrible parties, aliens in the lives of most Americans, gave us Trump. cc @matthewjdowd https://t.co/jllCJueOuT— Ron Fournier (@ron_fournier) January 4, 2017
One year ago, the Sunday Show Gasbag Cavalcade stumbled punch-drunk into 2017 not knowing what the hell had just hit them, but damn sure that none of it was their fault.
One year ago, noted human dung-pile and part-time freelance public ethicist, James "Fucker of Rats" O'Keefe was lecturing Ron Fournier on the importance of transparency.
One year ago, Donald Trump was going out of his way to kiss Vladimir Putin's ass in public.
One year ago, and to the surprise of no one on the Left, Donald Trump began the Great Health Care Bait-and-Switch.
One year ago, and to the surprise of no one on the Left, Donald Trump began the Great Mexico Will Pay For The Wall Bait-and-Switch.
One year ago, the junior Senator from Kentucky, Mr. Rand Paul, was worried that people might have forgotten what an idiot he is. So he jumped right up and reminded them.
One year ago, The New York Times confirmed that Richard Milhous Nixon was a straight-up traitor. Which still makes him only the fourth worst Republican president in the last 50 years.
One year ago, Simon and Schuster seized the opportunity to make a buck capitulating to friends and fellow travelers of the incoming Fascist regime by offering Milo Yiannopoulos a $250,000 advance to poop on a sheaf of paper and call it a "book".
One year ago, cable teevee's two biggest slabs of shoutycracker wingnut meathead, Messers Joe Scarborough and Sean Hannity, were busy punching each other in the face over who was the More Awesome Conservative. Don't worry kids! Zombie Lee Atwater loves you both equally!
One year ago, America's Most Ubiquitous Conservative Public Intellectual, Mr. David Brooks, was coping with the complete, public collapse of every lie he had ever told about the state of politics in this country by writing shit this like this -- "Finally, house hunting is morally difficult. This is where Donald Trump comes in..." -- in The New York Times.
One year ago and about 20 years too late, CNN part-time employee and freelance podcasting unperson, David "You Know Me From Linked-In" Gregory finally decided to help stand up for his profession. And it couldn't be going better!
Tough year behind us.
Tough year coming.
Behold, a Tip Jar!
