Fake Presidents

OK, so you're a progressive hand-wringing "liberal" and the political mood of the USA has not been going your way for the last 25 years - but really, aren't these alternate reality TV shows even more depressing than the GOP reality. You realize that the TV studios are making these programs for you, right? The model is Martin Sheen as President Josiah "Jed" Bartlet - the self righteous moralizer who inhabits the "West Wing" of the people's White House. Jed is the antidote to the dark reality so brilliantly portrayed in the British film titled "Love Actually" where the PM (Hugh Grant...no, I'm not kidding) puts the US President (Billy Bob Thornton...and, no, I'm not kidding about that either) in his proper place with this brilliant bit of dialog:

Press Conference Reporter: Mr. President, has it been a good visit?
The President: Very satisfactory indeed. We got what we came for and our special relationship is still very special.
Press Conference Reporter: Prime Minister?
Prime Minister: I love that word "relationship". Covers all manner of sins, doesn't it? I fear that this has become a bad relationship. A relationship based on the President taking exactly what he wants and casually ignoring all those things that really matter to, erm... Britain. We may be a small country but we're a great one, too. The country of Shakespeare, Churchill, the Beatles, Sean Connery, Harry Potter. David Beckham's right foot. David Beckham's left foot, come to that. And a friend who bullies us is no longer a friend. And since bullies only respond to strength, from now onward, I will be prepared to be much stronger. And the President should be prepared for that.

How pathetic! Home of Shakespeare, Churchill and HARRY POTTER!!!! Good God, who writes this shit? How could you commit it to celluloid? Who pays to have this stuff written, acted, shot and distributed? Hey, who cares? - I would never know anything about this movie or the scene above except for cable TV which allows me to see bits and pieces of movies that I would never in a million years pay money to see in a theater or even on video. One day I had the displeasure of seeing this scene and I could only think of the smug enlightened mind nodding his or her head up and down in solemn agreement with Hugh Grant's comments.

And now we have Geena Davis as President Mackenzie Allen on the ABC Television Network’s "Commander In Chief". The premise of this alternate reality is that some crazy assed woman gets put on the presidential ticket as a ploy to pick up the female vote and guess what - she becomes President of the United States. Then she starts ordering all the bureaucrats in the government around and turns the world upside down to implement a "progressive" agenda.

Keep watching the fake Presidents friends, meanwhile GWB, Bill Frist, Denny Hastert and John Roberts will keep running the real world.


Who elected this bitch?

The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson

She was "sexy", but "too much hard work." I'm a regular Fox & Friends viewer (mostly in protest of the other insipid morning programs like Today and Good Morning America) so over the years I've gotten to know Gretchen Carlson pretty well. Stuck between Steve and Brian she always seemed a prudish scold with an irritating, self-righteous demeanor that I simply put up with because I figured some people in the Fox audience actually liked her persona. It was obvious that Steve and Brian did not, but they were stuck with her like so many talking heads and had to make the best of it - which they did. Besides, she was no worse than any of the other women on morning show TV - I mean, you're only going to find a certain kind of person to do this kind of work and that kind of person is the Gretchen Carlson kind. Then, one day, she was gone and replaced by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and the F&F ratings began to climb, and climb and climb - in two months view

No Step On Snek

On The 2020 Election: In an elemental way We the People of the United States lost because Trump, and the MAGA movement he champions, forced the Deep State/Administrative State/New World Order (whatever you want to call it) and its enablers in Corporate America - Finance/FakeNews/Big Tech - to declare their sovereignty and steal our election in the most obvious way possible. The brazenness and " in yo face " shamelessness of the crime is a big part of its effectiveness and loudly proclaims an intent to demoralize and defeat the America First ideology which actually won the highest number of votes in this nation's history. It wasn't even close and that was made clear when key cities in 5 or 6 swing states declared they would pause (stop) counting(?!) votes until all the rural districts had submitted results allowing the big city machines to manufacture the ballots required to put Jo(((k)))e Biden in the lead. NPC's and Normies don't get too critical of process a

I've Got You Dumb Motherfuckers Eating Right Out Of My Hand

The branches of government In 2011 John Lasseter wrote an opinion piece for The Onion which exposed Pixar's production strategy and shocking success in the marketplace : "Yes, after the success of our first few movies we had a hunch you'd continue to enjoy the wonderfully designed animation and our smart, lyrical writing, but I didn't think we'd create a horde of drooling morons ready to drop everything just to watch a fucking rat cook dinner." This observation was in reference to a Pixar film titled "Ratatouille" about a rat who dreams of becoming a French chef which, to my lights, created one of the most unappetizing and subversive stories ever told. The idea of rats running roughshod in a Michelin-starred restaurant is bad enough but when the proposition that "Anyone can cook" is taken to its evil and impossible extreme I must object for France and humanity. Using that movie and others as an example Lasseter makes the point that his
