    Is it wrong I was LMAO during the Carson bit?

    Back in the days of CRTs, urinating on one’s monitor would have been—at the very least—extremely painful. It’s a pity Pamela “The Shrieking Harpy” Geller’s readers don’t live in the 1990s.

    Is there a greater waste of skin than Michelle Malkin?

    Chez, respecting the office is something only effete, gay, librul pansies do. The office is only respectable when a manly-man Republican is President.

    Bob, ditto patriotism.

    MSNBC is on life support at this point. Bringing in Keith Olbermann will change nothing, especially given that the channel is also giving the ones Charlie Pierce calls “Squint and the Meat Puppet” an extra hour a day (and maybe more, so us West Coast people can see more of them, yippee).

    Bob, again I say, self-indulgent it might have been, but Keith Olbermann reading James Thurber was more interesting than 90%+ of the “meaningful” content on TV.

    Chez, I don’t disagree exactly, but Keith Olbermann’s track record is as someone who is prickly and utterly without self-awareness. Apart from being A Famous Name, I’m not entirely sure what he’s supposed to bring (back) to the channel.

    Bob, liberals are being reasonable and conservatives (which is increasingly a misnomer, but that’s a discussion for another time) aren’t. Liberals put forward a reasonable position which is a compromise between what they—we—want and what sane conservatives would want, which is of course exactly what Barack Obama was accused of by the purity Left during his first term; the problem with this approach is that we are no longer dealing with sane conservatives. Yes, bolder initiatives would be better, but (a) Rs will never go along anyway, and (b) liberals have to be careful not to sound as OTT as conservatives actually are (even careful half-measures are met with sad head-shakes and tsk-tsking from our glorious news media).

    Government is not a business. Running government the way one would run a business (or one’s family finances, the folksier version of the same hooey) would be a disaster. Why does that not penetrate enough people’s heads?

    Actually, Chez, the Speaker of the House would be next in line after the Vice President, not second in line after the Vice President (that would be President pro tempore of the Senate; say hello to President Orrin Hatch).

    It’s definitely time, as Ed Kilgore said today, “for the vice president to publicly say ‘Yes,’ ‘No’ or ‘Maybe’ to a presidential run instead of letting this bizarre speculation continue perpetually.”

    Chez, the mere fact that Donald Trump exists sends a chill down my spine.

    Bob, the Fiorina Foundation isn’t a foundation, it’s an account at a so-called “donor-advised fund.” There’s nothing illegal or immoral about that, but it is a big misrepresentation (for one thing, foundations must have their own boards). The Ayco Charitable Foundation has donated to Planned Parenthood, but it’s possible—we’ll never know—none of Fiorina’s money is part of those donations. The story is custom-made for a gotcha! question at a press conference and it’s good for a laugh, but it is, ultimately, “A six-course banquet of nothing, with a scoop of sod-all as a palate cleanser.”

    Ben Carson’s superhero fantasies are bog-standard. He thinks he’d be big and tough and brave in the face of a (what else?) young, white, male gun humper who’s carrying an arsenal and is bent on killing everyone he sees—and not-so-subtly implied that the victims in Roseburg weren’t sufficiently big and tough and brave—when in reality he’d be filling his pants and cowering.

    Presumably, Carson expects that kindergarten teacher to be wearing a holster at all times.

    I think Carson’s comment in his Facebook Q&A is worse than his superhero fantasies or his idea that teachers should be packing. For those who missed it, behold:

    Dan, I grew up in the slums of Detroit. I saw plenty of gun violence as a child. Both of my cousins were killed on the streets. As a Doctor [sic], I spent many a night pulling bullets out of bodies. There is no doubt that this senseless violence is breathtaking – but I never saw a body with bullet holes that was more devastating than taking the right to arm ourselves away. Serious people seek serious solutions. The Left would prefer to use these tragedies to advance a political agenda. To me, that is also devastatingly sad. The Left would have you believe that a man that asked Christians to stand up (and then executed them one by one) would obey “new gun laws”. That kind of logic explains many of the problems we find ourselves in today.

    “Serious people seek serious solutions,” says the man who wants kindergarten teachers to be armed. Good grief.

    Donald Trump is a boob.

    (Bob, you missed your “fucking’ at 9:00, Chez’s “fuck”s at 36:43 and 41:28, and Chez’s “fucking” at 50:19.)
