""We got away with murder," executive producer Brett Baer told the Reporter after the premiere. "We've given broadcast standards a run for their money." " But to what end? I would pose this question to both Mr. Baer (who is NOT the same guy as the FNC news anchor) and his writing partner Dave Finkel; Why is pushing the limits of taste and decency so virtuous to you guys? I can't thing of a single net positive gain for pushing the envelope just for the sake of doing it. Y'know, Howard Stern was a novelty once, but nowadays this kind of thing only appeals to the immature among us.
"Common Core is a very hot issue at the grassroots in this country – I don’t think the media has recognized that." Of course they realize it is. That is precisely why they don't cover it. The MSM is not on our side, y'know.
Jerks. We had the same thing happen to some of us in the early 90's in La Maddalena, Italy, which is on an island just north of Sardinia. In this case, it was students who were in the Red Brigades or some such. They're all the same, though. Always ganging up on lone individuals or very small groups of two or three. That's why we always traveled in packs; these thugs always back away from a real fight.
"Emily Zanotti at the American Spectator wrote, “the war on women is over, and we [Republicans] won:”" This is a silly statement, and its the kind of thing Republicans shouldn't ever say. There was no 'war on women.' Period. The whole thing was fabricated from the get-go. When statements like that are made, it gives credibility to the narrative. Sure, I know the author is simply trying to employ a literary device to make her point, but its the kind of thing lefties latch on to, and whether we like it or not, it helps keep the narrative alive. No one in the Republican camp should ever give the false narrative (any false narrative) ANY credibility whatsoever.

"... some pundits are claiming that America voted for an "end to gridlock" and a new era of compromise and conciliation." IMHO, its because these propeller-heads think it is THEY who call the tune that everyone else dances to. Unfortunately, they lack the self-awareness to see that it was their narrative as well that was on the ballot last Tuesday. A great many of us are just as tired of their gas as we are of 0's. I heard that the Weather Channel got more viewers than the morning shows of either CNN or MSNBC. That should tell you a lot right there.
Yeah, I'm starting to think that 'libertarian' should be held strictly as a political philosophy, and not the manifestation of a political party. It would be interesting to see, however, how many of these libertarian voters would've broke left and how many would have broken right.
Probably the same people signing his paycheck.

Yeah. Now he's got no friends at all.
""Vote first, ask questions later" is not a mantra of good citizenship. It's a marketing strategy designed to reward politicians for voters' ignorance." And business is good these days, to be sure.
I was thinking the same thing.
"I don't blame my fellow citizens for being discouraged, given the radical changes that have been forced upon our society by a vocal minority with great political expertise." Well, you left out one principal component that was central to forcing this upon us. The fact that even you fail to mention it shows just how much power and influence they have over practically all facets of our society, culture and body politic. I'm, of course, talking about our mainstream media and pop culture entertainment industry. Too many of our fellow citizens get their opinions from these very dishonest, ideological entities. Getting to the bottom of it shouldn't be that hard; just follow the money. Who owns the major broadcast outlets in this country? Who owns the companies that advertise on them? Find out who's signing the check, and you'll find out who doesn't have our best interests at heart.
