Doesn't matter, if Netanyahu holds on to power, the republicans will be the only ones left in the US government that will work with him.
Short of showing up in SS uniforms, I imagine they can get away with a lot.

There are far too many Bryan Fischers out there, and it disgusts me. The GOP always tries so hard to pander to these idiots because they vote on very black and white, clear-cut value issues, but at the same time it frequently backfires on them.

Where, in all of Northeast Mississippi, are they ever going to find someone as politically opinionated, loudmouthed, and bigoted as Bryan Fischer ever again?
Doesn't he broadcast from Tupelo? That's where the American Family Association is, so i assume he's there too.

Oof, I appreciate the info for what it is, but I have lost the ability to stand political pundit info delivery services. Yes I understand her job isn't to just give me the news, but bogging down the story with constant mentions to how there are tiny threads connecting this story to your usual political punching bags while having nothing to do with the actual story is unbearable.
i have fewer pretenses than that and will continue to observe as many news resources objectively as possible
Agreed 100%, Mr Supafly! I think one of the things to understand here is that the American political world is nothing more than theatre, a Circus for the masses; "news resource" is just a cynical way of branding what might otherwise be called "poorly written soap opera". Once you accept this and move on, it's really quite liberating.
oh hi homer, what's up
And Change, not to call you out, but I have to ask you to clarify your statement. Mr Supafly *is* observing Ms Maddow's show objectively, and objectively, he finds it lacking. Skepticism and critical analysis are, I'd argue, absolutely necessary for any sort of "objective" watching - otherwise, you're not being objective, you're being a mark.
Also, the question might be asked, do any of us *truly* observe "as many resources as possible"? I'd say no. One of the most striking features of modern punditry, particularly here in America, is how insular and compartmentalized it all is. How many of us here, for example, have sat down and listened to Bryan Fischer speak? Not in clips or soundbites presented by Rachel Maddow or RightWingWatch, but on his own show, in his own words, in their proper context? And then further, how many of us have been able to do this whilst suppressing our own natural biases and giving serious consideration to the things that he says? I'd venture to guess that only a slim minority of us can answer affirmatively to the first question, and few, possibly none, can answer affirmatively to the second.
In reality, what tends to happen is we "clump up", watching a whole bunch of material from sources that are more or less saying the exact same things, things that we already agree with, or things we are getting primed to be receptive to. Clanishness and cattiness and the sort of "punching bag" behavior which Mr Supafly so accurately identifies in Ms Maddow's work, all this simoly serves to make things worse, further entrenching her audience into their own angry, subjective worlds.
Hi Change! Not much. Working on a music CD and some paintings, although my productivity has gone down due to stress. How are you?
I'm not sure if I even care about any of that shit boys, I just don't want the host to meander around while I wait for them to drop tiny bits of the actual story to me. I got shit to do man, brevity is the soul wit and all that.

Damn, I was expecting his career to end with a Men's Room arrest like the Larry Craig "Wide Stance" incident.

He still has his radio show, he's just not the spokesperson anymore.

Great news and all, but did Rachel have to take EIGHT MINUTES to get to the nut graph here?
Jet Bin Fever
Had to fill time. Though I think it should've been a 15 minute highlights reel with a crawl underneath that lists the people that have endorsed his organization.

Get to the fucking point lady.

The Internet has spoiled you people.
|namtar - 2015-01-29 |
Everyone has said it already, but for real lady, don't spend fifteen minutes to tell a three minute story.
|Hailey2006 - 2015-01-29 |
The bad news is AFA is a still a bigoted right wing group and Fischer still has his show!
You know you'd be disappointed if his show ended. So many lulz.
|Change - 2015-01-30 |
now the internet goes back to treating serious issues like they were fadish, and turn on the people who provided them information in the past
it would be funny if it wasn't so fucking shameful
