incompetent at governing and unwilling to be governed

Just in time for last nights Democrat "Debate" the NYTime's favorite Conservative diagnoses the reasons for the Republican parties incompetence. The cause of the GOP's problems, as everyone with a half-wit knows, is Rush Limbaugh.
"Over the past 30 years, or at least since Rush Limbaugh came on the scene, the Republican rhetorical tone has grown ever more bombastic, hyperbolic and imbalanced."
David Brooks just doesn't understand why the Republicans can't show more "intellectual humility" and promote "steady, incremental change" showing a "respect for hierarchy, precedence, balance and order, and a tone of voice that is prudent, measured and responsible." You know, like Bernie Sanders or Hilary Clinton. It's like this, traditional conservatives are supposed to run out on the tracks of history and yell stop - then get run over, but these Rush Limbaugh inspired rubes are actually trying to rip up the tracks or at the very least throw the switch and move the train onto a different track. They're "incompetent at governing and unwilling to be governed."

Pink Politician

Well, sort of, but Brooks like every DC pundit who's made a respectable living proping up the 1932 governing order where DC "rules" and the citizen/subjects "obey" will never understand what's roiling the GOP - He doesn't even understand Rush Limbaugh. Like most Democrats, Brooks thinks Rush is a political gadfly barking out orders to the GOP base, but any honest assessment of his 20 Million (!!!) average weekly listeners will show that his audience is ideologically broad. More importantly, if you listen to his broadcast (I mean really listen) it's surprising how little he actually addresses politics or politicians - What he really focuses his attention on is illuminating the fake media-sphere that supports, obfuscates, lies and ignores injustice in the existing political order. His target is not politicians or political parties - it's the blob of conformity that insulates Washington DC from the people in the "real world". Rush's target is David Brooks and all the pencil neck nerds like him that manufacture the news and popular opinion. Millions of Americans see it just as Rush does and they want to tear the established order down, scrub it off and build something better.

Proof - at last nights "debate" when Bernie gave Hitlery a pass on her e-mail server "scandal" by letting her know that "he's sick and tired of hearing about her emails" the press room (where all the reporters sit) erupted in spontaneous cheers. It would have been a great moment for the moderator of the "debate" to remind Senator Sanders that the FBI doesn't, as a rule, procure peoples private servers unless there is suspicion of criminal activity, but for some strange reason the follow up didn't spring from Anderson Cooper's lips. Bernie's gift to Hilary last night just proves what I've thought all along, that Sanders is a Stalking Horse designed to ignite the hard left base who loath all things Clinton and bring them into the fold when the time is right - He's a tool in the Democrat machine and nothing more - I'm sure David Brooks doesn't understand that either.

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
