    I know we treat him as a joke, but I wish you had played the clip associated with Carson and the Tubman “controversy”, as they are a very telling look into the warped world of the prosperity gospel. To paraphrase, Carson thought Jackson was a great guy because he was the last President under whom we had no national debt.

    Jackson hated the very idea of a federal treasury/national bank, etc. Andrew Jackson held slaves, and participated in ethnic cleansing against this continent’s Native peoples. During his Presidency, the vast majority of this country’s citizens were unable to have a voice in the political process. But hey, at least you couldn’t buy a savings bond and he had a big block of cheese! That Carson would think that this was when this country was at it’s peak is scary as hell.

    Prince, Merle Haggard & Bowie all gone in 4 months and Dick Motha Fuckin’ Cheney is still alive. What the hell?

      I’ve used this line before, and I’ll happily use it once again, this time in reference to Dick Cheney:

      Nothing truly evil dies.

    I think we should put Oprah on the $100 bill–just to piss off the right wing. Its so much fun to poke them with a sharp stick.

  • Aynwrong

    I love the Samuel L Jackson on the Twenty dollar bill idea. Put Nick Fury on the front and Jules Winnfield on the back.

  • I couldn’t agree more re: Prince. I’m very, very sad today.

  • Badgerite

    I really like the Obama that has no f–ks left to give. And exactly which side of a $20 bill is the ‘front’ and which is the ‘back’? God they are silly.

    Miles Davis called him a genius. Miles Davis.

    Just have to chime in, putting Harriet on the 20 will be a pretty big undertaking, sculpting out an engraving from low quality photos that are over 100 years old. I know a few of the engravers at the Mint, and it’s a very tough profession, with a high likelihood of losing substantial eyesight throughout ones career. It’s not just a copy/pasta job damnit! Otherwise, great show, thanks!

    I wasn’t Prince’s greatest fan, but he was immensely talented, driven, quirky, bold, influential, and not afraid to raise two fingers to Warner Bros and, by extension, the entire record industry (an industry which, needless to say, richly deserves such a gesture). The music industry—a slightly different animal than the record industry—is, as I said earlier on the blog, more gray and boring because of his death.

    It’s not the sort of thing that keeps me up at night, but replacing Andrew Jackson with Harriet Tubman is good news, given their respective biographies. Besides which, US currency is too static, graphically, so changing the design of the $20 is good for that reason, too.

    Of course the Right went (slightly more) insane over the image on the twenty. I await with breath abated the statement from either Rand or Ron Paul—or Ted Cruz, come to that—decrying the placing of Tubman on fiat currency and demanding she be put on a $20 gold certificate instead.

    Steve Doocy may be a clueless bell-end, but he’ll never be out of a job becase he’s eager to do whatever the bosses tell him to do. Go out and interview New Yorkers in hopes of finding someone with a negative opinion of Harriet Tubman? He’ll get right on that. Hell, if a producer told him to light himself on fire for a segment, he’d ask if he had to use his own matches.

  • Michael B. Conway

    Prince, Michael Jackson and Madonna. All born in 1958. Hey, me too!

    • leemoder

      Goodbye, Mr. Conway(strokes cat in lap).

    • Victor the Crab

      And of the three, Only Madonna is still alive. Not fair.

  • Thanks for the Prince tribute.
