Our "Allies" Really Need To Get Their Stories Straight






Just kidding.  Bartlett is right, while Walsh will, VERY LOUDLY, take any side of any issue that'll get him  on teevee.  Currently Walsh is pitching this bafflegab about Republicans secretly being "good people" and that, once again, "Both sides" and/or "EVERYONE" are/is to blame for everything.  

It's hot garbage, but is it hot garbage enough to get him on CNN?

Only time will tell.

The Fascist in the Gorilla Suit

These days, if you're looking for a source of a severe cognitive impairment that's an actual threat to the republic, look no further than the mainstream media.

Through sheer force of will (and fealty to the corporate bottom line), the corporate media has trained itself to ignore the growing horror which has been staring them in the face, baring its fangs, and inching ever closer for decades. 

 This is collective cognitive blindness at its worst and most dangerous:
Cognitive blindness is the inability to understand something due to the lack of a precept of knowledge, understanding or belief in a necessary fundamental concept. Cognitive blindness can be a result of inadequate intellectual capacity for understanding something or it can be a result of emotional, cultural or cognitive biases.

The phenomenon can also be the result of a person being so focused one thing or perspective that they fail to see another perhaps otherwise obvious thing. One famous experiment that illustrates cognitive blindness was performed by Christopher Chabris and Daniel Simmons. The experiment was dubbed the invisible gorilla test.
The collective cognitive blindness has driven the corporate media into a state of single-mindedly obsession with horse race coverage, Both Siderism and counting Joe Biden's verbal tics and stutters, even as this is happening right now in real time:


And as a direct result there is now a fascist madman at the head of an army of grifters, perverts, traitors, criminals and white supremacists, all dressed up in gorilla suits -- 


 -- strolling virtually unmolested through the landscape of the 2024 presidential campaign.
