Sunday Morning Comin’ Down

"A Moviola Full Of Mousies" Edition

On “Fox News Sunday” , the same old thing: Chipper little cartoon characters

roaring out Teutonic Goth Metal.

On “Face the Nation” Barney Frank sings, sings, sings!

(h/t Pearl)

On “This Week” Lindsey Graham was his

usual help self.

It has been fascinating-if-unsurprising over these last two weeks to watch the berserker rodents left at the bottom of the Republicans barrel try to navigate between their gutless fealty to Rush Limbaugh and the unflinching spotlight that the new, charming and articulate President shines on them.

It is a new Proscenium arch to frame the same, sad reality that we on the Left have been desperately trying to explain to terrified, fence-straddling moderates forever. That 25 years of full-throttle, Hate Radio-Atwater-Falwell-Gingrich-DeLay-Rove-driven politics has left nothing inside the GOP but “Limbaugh Republicans” and one or two freakish outliers.

We warned you. God knows, we warned you, over and over and over again. And now the Party of Lincoln is ruled by a bigot who openly declares he wants the President to fail. Whose fondest wish is an American fallen into a new Dark Age of poverty and ignorance because that would be great for his ratings.

On “Meet the Press” David Gregory facilitates a conversation

about dogs and evil.

On ”The Chris Matthews Show” Matthews and Katty Kay listen to Andrew Sullivan explain about the future of leisure Beltway dilettante politics and how surprisingly expensive

lifestyle Libertarian bondage apparel can be.

I'm stealing that Space Ghost audio. Do you want a hat-tip?

Space Ghost is like Jesus; he belongs to the world.
