The Mouse Circus: where playing with a Republican Nominee Cootie Catcher and droning on e-n-d-l-e-s-s-l-y about Sarah Fucking Palin week after week after week is what passes for Serious Political Conversation.
Way in the back, between the Geek and the Dog-Faced Boy, Human Tadpole Ramesh Ponnuru (Author of "The Party of Death: The Democrats, the Media, the Courts, and the Disregard for Human Life") got creepily giggly over Palin, but getting creepily giggly over things is what Ponnuru does.
A few channels down, Useful Conservative Idiot Andrew Sullivan feared for the fate of a nation that could take Palin seriously. Too late, Andrew: to fix this one you'll need A) a time machine and, B) a willingness to going back in time and pimp-slap the living shit out of Slightly Younger Andrew Sullivan as he was making the road straight and clear for the rise of Palinism, back when it was called Reaganism.
Later, Chris Matthews reviewed Palin's movie. Because he cannot fucking help himself.
Between courses of Tossed Palin, Steamed Palin and Palin Tartar, other Topics of Serious Importance were discussed.
For example, John McCain was put in front of a camera because, being Memorial Day, the law required that John McCain be prominently displayed in front of all public buildings, national parks and Imperial Propaganda Outlet Malls.
On two different channels, Joe "Wanktastic Failure" Klein and Tom "Even Bigger Wanktastic Failure" Friedman were seated in front of teevee cameras to make bold, predictions about conflicts in a part of the world where the have been spectacularly and infamously wrong about almost everything.
Conservative Drone David Brooks was put in front of a teevee camera on America's top-rated Mouse Circus Show to re-read his New York Times column.
Conservative Drone Alex Castellano was put in front of a teevee camera on the same top-rated Mouse Circus Show to re-read his "Daily Caller" column that no one reads.
Fake Democrat and Useful Conservative Idiot Harold Ford, Junior was put in front of a teevee camera on the same top-rated Mouse Circus Show to advocate tossing grandma off a slightly lower cliff than Republicans are proposing. I believe the word "Serious" might have been used seven or a hundred times to underscore the seriousness
And David Gregory -- the establishmentarian-testicle-cozy who hosts America's top-rated Mouse Circus Show -- said this (referring to what Barack Obama must do to be taken Seriously and win re-election):
"And you got to be able to say, 'Look, I'm for the thing that those Republicans are for, but they're just way too extreme.'"and this;
And then here's Bill Clinton giving some ammunition to the Republicans by saying to the Democrats, don't be timid here. Don't go to the old, you know, mediscare tactics. Do something courageous.
It is important for the Left to come to terms with the fact that this will never stop. It does not matter how right we are or how often...how rotting-carcass-reeking-to-high-Heaven wrong they are, how bad, how warped, how dishonest, how openly fraudulent and laughably obvious this sham may be. The unimaginably wealthy backers of establishmentarian-testicle-cozy David Gregory and all the rest of the parasitic puppet show life forms will never permit this status quo to be altered to any significant degree.
And then there is this...
A few, hard-driving Sundays ago, coming back in range of Chicago (a massive media market, Democrat stronghold and the 3rd largest city in the American Empire) I sought to wash the taste of Mouse Circus poo out of my mouth with a quaff of Liberal Conversation from the only Liberal Talk Radio station in the area.
What I heard on the only Liberal Talk Radio station within 200 miles was...
...a re-run of profoundly odious "Meet the Press". Followed by...
...Cheney henchbitch Mary Matalin vomiting up lies about the Kenyan Commie Usurper on a Centrist shitaree called "Both Sides Now" run by the same mope who helped smother Air America. Followed by...
...Alan Colmes respectfully interviewing former fellow Fox employee and American traitor, Oliver North.
`Wretch,' I cried, `thy God hath lent thee - by these angels he has sent thee
Respite - respite and nepenthe from thy memories of Lenore!
Quaff, oh quaff this kind nepenthe, and forget this lost Lenore!'
Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.'
Devastating, as always. Especially when you make me laugh. Thanks for Poe today.
Mr. D! Re your wonderful puppet likeness of David G.… You remind me of something I've been wondering about.
After Gregory pushed Gingrich just a tad in his interview, the weeknight lineup on MSNBC all went out of their way to mention what a great journalist he had been at that moment. Why?
I can't believe it's because they really do think he's a journalist, great or otherwise. O'Donnell and Maddow, at least, are too bright to pretend such a thing. Was it maybe a part of some kind of training program? All carrot and no stick? Just praise him effusively if he does something right? Anything?
Have all empires had such vapidly inane toadies?
At least we've all got it now.
It is important for the Left to understand that this will never stop. It does not matter how right we are, how rotting-carcass-reekingly wrong they are, how bad, how warped, how dishonest, how obvious, and how laughably fraudulent this sham may be. The unimaginably wealthy backers of establishmentarian-testicle-cozy David Gregory and all the rest will never permit this status quo to be altered to any significant degree.
You are the Lazarus Long of liberal blogging.
I couldn't agree more. I'm wondering where in the hell is this so called "liberal press" we are constantly hearing about. Not the MSM, that's for sure. Or else how could it be that Tea Partiers who show up to a rally, armed and waving posters of President Obama depicted as Hitler, are described as "passionate" in the press whereas constituents attending a town hall meeting in Florida, demanding answers about the Ryan Plan from their representatives, are described as "unruly". And this was in the New York Times, for chrissakes. "Liberal Press", my ass!
Loved the Poe quote, btw...
After my last drunken declaration - I had second thoughts. But now I realize that it is true. I love you man. Nobody does it better. This is a masterpiece. The exhaustion and futility of repeating basic truths is palpable, but expressed with beauty and precision - a perfect encapsulation of my frustration. Your work is important. Therefore I will stop now and give you some money. And all you other deadbeats should do the same. Don't stop. Keep screaming. Please.
