    It is no accident that Roger Ailes started out his career working for Richard Nixon. Fox ‘news’ (small n) and the GOP ( see Sarah Palin) are all about the politics of resentment.
    Which Nixon was a master of.
    The WWII generation wanted their children to have it better than they did. Fox News seems to think it would be a good idea if they had it worse. It would be like my parents saying they had to walk ten miles to school and back everyday in the snow. So no school buses for you. It is that ridiculous. We had to live with the scourge of measles , small pox, etc, so so do you. Ridiculous. You want things to be better for the future. You want things to be better for the next generation.
    Who will pay for it? The people always decrying the fact that they cannot seem to find well trained, educated people to fill skilled positions in the workforce, that’s who. That is why we have taxes. To further societal interests.
    I know it sounds trite because it is said so often, but it is said so often because it is undeniably true. The next generation will be the future of our country. “Because I didn’t get that” is not a good reason to handicap them because in so doing you handicap the future of this country.

    I heard maybe a minute or so of Joni Ernst’s State of the Union response on Tuesday and two things occurred to me: first, she sounds like she’s cold-reading something and is terrified of screwing it up so she’s talking … really … slowly, and second, as ridiculous as we may think she is, The Republican Base was going to love her.

    A politician sharing The Wisdom Of The Common Man from a neighbor back home or some random person on the street—or how tough the pol had it growing up—is likely to be talking cobblers anyway. Chez, you write up a petition and I’ll sign it (or, in the alternative, we can all simply agree to pelt such a politician with overripe fruit until s/he stops).

    Bread Bag Friday sounds like something Lunch Lady Doris would come up with to complement Taco Tuesday.

    It would be funny if it weren’t so pitiful: Rs applaud Barack Obama’s acknowledgement that he’s run his last campaign, then the entire Right clutches its pearls and heads for the fainting couch when Obama returns fire. “Mommy, he’s being mean to us!” (The incomparable Roy Edroso provides a nice, if incomplete, rundown of Righty reaction to the State of the Union.)

    Bob, the Right—and, to be fair, a not-insubstantial chunk of the Left—has spent the past seven or eight years trying to come up with a synonym for “uppity.”

    Bob, admit it: you just want to have Buzz Burbank call this “the award-winning Bubble Genius Bob and Chez Show” (and yes, I will definitely be voting).

    The Rs just can’t help themselves. Todd Akin was emphatically not an outlier. In their cold, black, flabby hearts, Rs just know women—or maybe that should be shameless hussies—are enjoying sexy sexytimes and then brazenly lying by saying they were raped so they can get themselves evil, sinful abortions. I freely admit it’s anecdata, but the women I know and have known who have had abortions did not do so for frivolous reasons and would not have lied about the circumstances surrounding their pregnancies. Yet again I ask, why would any woman vote for any R for any office?

    Erick Erickson is a classy guy, isn’t he?

    I think the dimwits at Fox News forgot the entire world can quickly find out what’s being said on their silly cable channel and were shocked that even David Cameron felt compelled to point and laugh. Bobby Jindal watched FNC step on a rake but his speech was already written and he didn’t have the time or inclination to revise it, so he merrily stepped on the same rake, over and over again. The sad part is that he thinks this performance will make The Base like him and vote for him for president.

    Jindal’s invocation of Righty immigration conjuring words (“integrate” and “assimilate”) is his attempt at a wink and a nod at the xenophobic wing of the GOP. Well-educated he may be, but he’s delusional if he thinks the Steve Kings in his party will overlook his melanin surplus.

    It is astonishing that even a single individual in a political party that insists taxes are theft and spending tax money on governmental functions constitutes an unjustifiable giveaway would characterize a tax credit for the middle class—however defined—as a handout. It’s as if the Rs have made a bar bet that they can directly insult every constituency they have and still get elected.

    The Fox and Friends brain room. I imagine it’s a -20°C cold room lined with jars of formaldehyde containing brains.

    Erick ibn Erick is a classy guy, isn’t he?

    (Bob, you missed a “fucking” from Chez at 41:27.)
