OK, you're finished

For 20 years this bombastic gadfly has been barking into the homes of lazy American cable subscribers stupid enough to set their boob tube to his frequency. For the past few years (7 to be exact) he's been on a racist rant about President Obama and how Republicans EVERYWHERE can't cope with the melanin in BHO's skin - As thought the GOP gave a rat's ass what color a politician is (ever taken a close look at John Boener's skin color?)

The Party of Race sees racism everywhere

Last night Chris Matthews went off the rails again with his Hardball closer. Listing all the mean things conservatives have done to Obama over the past 6 years:
  1. Wanted him to accomplish noting
  2. Wanted him booted from office as quickly as possible
  3. Called him a liar
  4. Invited foreign leaders to "denigrate" the Presidents foreign policy (without informing the Pres)
  5. Asked Iran to continue building a nuclear bomb (it's sort of confusing - you have to read the way Matthews worded it)
And then he finished with this doozy:
"They (future Americans) will read all this and wonder: what was it that made the Republican opposition so all-out contemptuous of an American president?  What made it treat him as below respect, below the dignity historically accorded his office?

They will look at the concerted effort of Republican legislative leaders in three dozen states to make it harder for minorities to vote, even claiming partisan victory when successful in the effort.

They will then look at a picture of this president and, perhaps, get the idea that the age of Jim Crow managed to find a new habitat in the early 21st century Republican Party."
Mathews should go to YouTube and watch some old Hardball clips - they're very clarifying even now and they certainly will be when people "look back" on this Presidency.

But OK, I'll play - why the contempt and lack of respect? And not just from Republicans, but from huge numbers of American voters in general. Chris Matthews should be able to answer this one himself, but he doesn't want to. The answer is that BHO was not ready to be President of the United States, but found himself elevated to that role because the Democrat Elders (Kennedy, Kerry, etc) were desperate to keep HRC from becoming President. Basically, he's an affirmative action hire and they're making the best of it while he's there - The Democrats have no one to blame but themselves (especially Chris "thrill up my leg" Matthews) for the slings and arrows Obama must put up with (just as the GOP would be to blame if Sarah Palin became President - does Matthews think the Dems would treat her with "the dignity historically accorded the office?"). Vote suppression is the least of the Dems worries and pinning broadly popular voter ID laws on the GOP is a lazy left race bating mistake, but as Kevin Williamson pointed out so eloquently it is just the kind of mistake they must make until they are finished.

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

Psycho Killer, qu'est-ce?

I came into this wicked world in the early 1960's and as a result I have born witness to America's 50 Years of Failure which includes the modern age of mass shootings by psychotic men who "go off" on a given day, for no reason at all (except "guns"), and kill scads of innocent bystanders. Back in August of 2019 a KOTCB blog post titled " Reciprocity City " explored a young  gunman  named Patrick Crusius  who drove 9 hours through the west Texas flatlands to shoot up El Paso, TX The KOTCB has commented on many of these shootings, bombings and knifings over the years -  The roots of the Boston Marathon Bombing ,  the Emanuel AME Church shooting ,  Syed Rizvan Farook and his bride Tashfeen Malik ,  Ft. Lauderdale Airport shooting ,  Nick Cruz lovesick Parkland shooting ,  the Iranian, PETA activist, Vegan Bodybuilder, YouTuber's attack on Google  and now this very oddly timed and placed "lone wolf" attack on Walmart shoppers. This list

Who voted for this guy?

Who voted for this guy? It's been ten days since the results of the Maricopa County, Arizona ballot audit were released to the public and presented at a hearing held by the state senate. This exercise in democratic accountability had been going on for months and, if reports are to be believed, was completed well over a  month before the September 24th hearing where   overwhelming proof of an illegitimate election was presented to lawmakers . The audit showed multiple irregularities, fake ballots, duplicate counts, errors, omissions and egregious acts of sabotage and obstinance by the Maricopa County board of supervisors who did everything they could to withhold and destroy evidence of wrongdoing from the citizen sleuths. The misfeasance of Arizona's political leaders was clearly defined, shocking and (for some) beyond belief but somehow these facts were discovered, organized, packaged and suppressed for MONTHS by the Cyber Ninjas who were attempting to "get to the bottom&q
