"No, this is not a "Saturday Night Live" anniversary skit." You got that right. Even the most absurdist SNL skit has to make *some* kind of sense, and most of its humorous content was intentioally put there. No, this isn't sketch comedy. It's found footage from a lunatic asylum.
Good one. My compliments.
The good stuff is undoubtely off-limits to presidential camp followers, and much of what Podesta has unearthed may be disinformation. But if he really believes that the public deserves to know what he thinks he knows, he should act on his convictions. Of course, breaking a confidentiality agreement would end his ride on the Washington gravy train. So don't expect shocking revelations anytime soon.
Yeah, lefties are indeed a classy group. And when Palin is 90, blind in one eye, and confined to a wheelchair, they'll still be heckling and trying to destroy her for daring to leave the reservation.
Takeaways: (1) You can get away with anything as long as you toe the leftist line. (2) The press, national, state, and local, doesn't pretend to be nonpartisan anymore. It doesn't even see a reason to pretend. (3) Getting rid of leftist corruptocrats by tricking them into alienating their base isn't much of a strategy. Their successors will probably be equally corrupt and hard-line ideologues to boot. (4) Don't move to Oregon.

Cut him some slack. Typing directly into a Town Hall comment field is laborious and produces unpredictable results on my computer and probably on others, and not everyone is inclined to compose in a word processor.

I strongly recommend "Vice Versa." California should cut all ties to the institution and let it float or sink in the private sector. Of course, the government of California will do no such thing unless general disgust produces a popular uprising comparable to the tax revolt of 1978.

A Man's View of 50 Shades Of Grey

I used to read a lot of sci-fi and fantasy. Then I grew up. Even before that blessed event, however, I wondered why a great deal of such literature, even the best of it, such as the Tolkien books, had to do with royalty and violence. I tried dipping into romance novels just to see why they attract girls and women. I never could wade very far into the wretched prose before I ran out screaming and hit the shower, but I did notice a similar oddity: domination and unpleasant characters are common themes. Later I was puzzled why America, which had fought many tyrants, old and new, and taken in refugees from many others, has become obscenely fond of foreign royalty. All these phenomena seem related somehow. Fantasy and escapism involve willing detachment from reality. I get that. What I don't understand is why people spend inordinate amounts of time with imaginary people, situations, and behavior that they'd find absolutely intolerable in real life.
The last paragraph is pretty good, but a simpler strategy is to quote Obama's "above my pay grade" dodge. The press won't let any politician to the right of Ted Kennedy get away with any response short of public repudiation of all religious belief, so those in the hot seat might as well fling the double standard back in the inquisitors' faces.
Amen, sir. To apply its newly discovered abhorrence of lying consistently, NBC would have to shut down its entire news division. It would also have to close MSDNC, which as near as I can tell has never told the truth about anything, not even the weather, not even by accident. A bare list of NBC's lies, omissions, and distortions, from George Zimmerman's redacted 911 call to the invisible rockets fired from Gaza toward Israel, would fill a very large book. CNN, CBS, NPR, and the other senescent media megafauna would need separate volumes. Williams has received a down payment on what he deserves—dismissal, permanent exclusion from the field of journalism, and universal scorn—but he's not the only lying "journalist" in need of a career change. On the bright side, Williams is still eligible for his dream job as host of the Tonight show. Don't get me started on politicians.
