There shouldn't be, of course, but even so, I have to say I was taken aback when tonight I got home from the airport, turned on the teevee, and literally the first thing I heard was John McFuck pronouncing:
We are the makers of history, not its victims.
"Not its victims"? This to an audience of television viewers in the United States of America in the year 2008?
Again, I shouldn't be surprised at this open display of fascism.
But as this blog has noted before, McFuck is mentally and morally deranged as a result of having spent too many years being tortured in a cage; and sadly, and frighteningly, he has again and again proved himself worthy of being put back in it.
As if on cue, when I finished that blog post and turned the teevee on, the first thing I heard was Tom Brokaw talking about McFuck's cage-torture, and Chris Matthews talking about Winston Churchill.
Now they're all talking about Hillary's "emotional moment" and "sympathy" and "women."
Do any of our readers own a truck underneath the moving tire of which I could place my head?
Just now one of the best teevee moments ever. Matthews cut to Buchanan and Maddow for commentary on the Clinton comeback "mystery"--and after Buchanan talked about how NH had given a big fuck-you to the press and their forcefed narrative--Maddow nodding her head on the split screen all the while--Maddow took her turn and said (I'm paraphrasing): "In fact, according to the very influential (on the left) [sic] blog Talking Points Memo, these voters were angered and energized specifically to you, Chris Matthews, and things you've been saying about Senator Clinton over the last few days."
Matthews asked her again for the name of the blog, purpo
rting not to have heard of it. Can a man [sic] who has made his career as a politics bobblehead actually not know the names of the handful of most widely read Dem-leaning blogs in the country? These blogs have been around now for 6 years and more. Is he fucking kidding?
Also: why is Olbermann so generous in mediating Matthews's aggressive idiocy?
Fixin's provides us with this campaign poster, which he says "should help AmCop's readers decide who to support in tonight's primary, based on the candidates put forward."
