    Finally, I watched “Idiocracy,” and now, all of your references to it make sense to me.
    OMG – As a nation, it’s where we’re headed, and we’re fucked…

    Bob, what you two are describing is The Truman Show (“Good morning, and in case I don’t see ya, good afternoon, good evening, and good night!”), only with—mercifully—less Jim Carey.

    Happy National Grouch Day, Chez (although, now I think about it, that should be Miserable National Grouch Day).

    Agreed, Bob. The American people came out ‘way ahead in the Democratic debate.The question is whether enough of the American people realize it and vote accordingly.

    Forget every medical drama you’ve ever seen on TV, Ben Carson is what a lot of surgeons aspire to: preternaturally calm, unflappable, unemotional. If you have a scalpel in your hand, the last thing you want is adrenaline coursing through your veins. Of course, Ben Carson is also what a lot of surgeons are and refuse to acknowledge: utterly incapable of interacting with normal human beings on a personal level. The amount of melanin in Carson’s skin is irrelevant; people with certain personality traits go into surgery as a medical specialty.

    Mike Huckabee needs not to be taken seriously by anyone, anywhere, at any time. He needs to realize he’s never going to be the R candidate for President, he’s never going to define the terms of the debate in either the primaries or the general, and he should just go back to his comfortable life of bilking the Christianist shut-ins who think he’s something other than a (very bad) conman.

    Chez, actually, Sam Harris is wrong. A person from 1000 years ago wouldn’t understand religion as it’s practiced today any more than s/he would understand an iPhone, if for no other reason than the Protestant Reformation happened in the 16th century.

    Nate Silver has a remarkable track record for predicting elections. Others seem to do okay for one or maybe two elections before their models fall apart. Personally, I think Silver is a witch. No other explanation makes sense.

    Bob, you could have stopped at “Fox & Friends had Laura Ingraham on.” For any sentient being, that’s two strikes right from the start, and Ingtraham mentioning Hillary Clinton was Strike Three.

    The Right has been desperate to get the Clintons—doesn’t matter for what, they just want to get the Clintons for something—since Bill Clinton was elected President. I don’t think I have to remind anyone that an R—under cover of anonymity, of course—admitted they impeached Bill Clinton because “the Democrats” were out to impeach Richard Nixon (never mind there were quite a lot of Rs who voted to impeach Nixon and never mind actual felonies seemed to have been committed in the Oval Office).

    Wayne Simmons a fraud? But he seemed so knowledgeable. *snerk*

    Louie Gohmert is a very stupid man who thinks he’s a smart man. The people who voted for him, as near as I can tell, are proud of their stupidity. (At the risk of sullying a venerable American institution, every time I hear Gohmert go off, I remember Homer Simpson’s famous line, “I hope I didn’t brain my damage.”)

    Jesse Ventura has nothing of importance to say. Can we ignore him now, please?

    (Bob, you missed Chez’s “fuck” at 18:20.)

      I think Webb and Chafee should just skip the rest of them. I felt a little embarrassed for them. O’Malley will probably do better with more practice. That’s just my opinion, of course.

      You may be right about Nate Silver being a witch. Lol.

    Haven’t even listened yet and already had a chuckle. That picture…yeeeesh!!!
