Progressives have nothing left to offer

So I'm on facebook reading all the threads about Kathy Griffin and her "press conference" today where she starts blaming others for her misfortune. (the whole sordid thing is at the link above)
Pretty much the consensus is that she brought it on herself and disbelief that she is trying to find blame elsewhere.
Which seems to be a popular thing to do what with Hillary pinning the blame for her loss on everyone but.

Anyway I digress.

A few misguided but brave souls appeared in the threads and proceeded to try and defend Griffin by using the Ted Nugent equivalency.

Well I pointed out that most normal people don't depend on Ted Nugent to shape their political views but progressives slobber uncontrollably over the wisdom spewed by comedians and that is the difference.

The response was a diatribe of insults about me where I lived and what sex acts I wanted to perform with the Donald.
The last took me by surprise cause I thought progressives were cool with gay sex. I guess they are unless they can use it as an insult.

Anyway it occurred to me that progressives aren't even trying to make a persuasive argument anymore. When Trump won the election it's like something just completely snapped.
Now all we get is name calling, beheading photos and gay slurs.

It's like they think if they keep sputtering and screaming and pulling their hair out that the whole country will change it's mind, throw Trump out and inaugurate Hillary making things all right in the world.
Kind of childish huh?

I honestly don't see how this could work, not for 2018 and not for 2020, As time goes on the loci of this behaviour will get smaller and smaller just out of pure exhaustion with the hate and despair.

Progressives are finally committing suicide of their cause and this could be a good thing. Common sense may again prevail.

Leftist become further unhinged

Since Trump decided to pull us out of the Paris climate accord leftists have pretty much gone ballistic.
It's really a non-binding agreement that other countries could use as a cudgel to beat us over the head with to extort taxpayer money and hobble our economy so my opinion is good deal.

Anyway here's some over the top drama queen reactions.


Seems like their reaction to everything is,"WE'RE DOOMED!!!!!" and, "DAMN YOU DONALD TRUMP!!!".

Pass the popcorn please.

Politics killed Comedy

Tucker Carlson has a point here I mean I have to think back for decades to remember a really funny comedian.

It's pretty predictable nowadays, attack Trump run the laugh track then repeat endlessly night after night.
Plenty of comedians skewered politicians in the past and it was funny because they would find humour in their policies or personality quirks. But repeating the same old mantra of racist, fascist, narcissist ad nauseum can only go so far.

I guess it's too much to ask that we go back to a time when comedians really put an effort into making people laugh instead of making political statements.
One of the shortest comedy careers that I know of was Vaughn Meader, he had an act that depended on JFK's administration and when he was assassinated the guy faded away as far as I know.
But he was funny and not the least bit vile.

No one tried to make comedy from Kennedy's assassination because no matter who you were or your politics it would have been considered in very poor taste. I'm not so sure that is the case nowadays.
In this era comedy seems to be based on the possibility.
What's funny about that?

Sununu challenges CNN........ identify the veniality.

OK I'll admit I had to look up Veniality and somehow that definition doesn't seem to apply as well as the definition of Venality does.
the condition or quality of being venalopenness to bribery or corruption.
Which would be more correct as to the hopeful allegations being made by the democrat owned media.
He's correct that there has been no indication or proof.

Kathy Griffin, just another media whore

Whelp now that the well deserved cycle of "artistic" defiance, desperate justification, then boot-licking apology  has elapsed over the last 24 hours for Kathy Griffin we can reflect on the true reasons the whole episode transpired.

Griffin, like all desperate celebrities, is really just a simple media whore.
It was all about getting attention by latching onto the new "trendy" activity among leftists which is "the resistance". The goal wasn't art or comedy or to even make a political statement the goal was to receive accolades from the liberal media to get publicity for being "edgy".

But the truth is if she, or any number of has beens, could gain an advantage by being seen with Trump they wouldn't hesitate.

Partisanship never gets in the way of the bottom line for these folks, she took a shot and it shot back. People need to realize that those in the media and those who try to use the media are not on anyone's "side" except their own and they will use and manipulate each other for their own ends.

So don't expect this kind of foolishness to end.

Stuart Smalley goes butch

Apparently Al Franken, Minnesota's fighting senator, went medieval on a protester.

EXETER, N.H. – Wise-cracking funnyman Al Franken yesterday body-slammed a demonstrator to the ground after the man tried to shout down Gov. Howard Dean.

The tussle left Franken’s trademark thick-rim glasses broken, but he said he was not injured.

Franken – who seemed in a state of shock and out of breath after the incident – was helped back to his feet by several people who watched the tussle. Police arrived soon after.

“I got down low and took his legs out,” said Franken afterwards.~snip~  
No word yet on whether he's being charged with assault like Greg Gianforte, as a matter of fact I doubt this will get anywhere near the media.
But that's the state of journalism these days, if a republican does it it's a horrible act of violence. If a progressive liberal does it it's a heroic defense of free speech.

Not a lot of sympathy for the media

I'm going to leave judgment about this incident to the courts but the reality is I think a lot of people have felt the same frustration for the prissy elitist media.
There are a few times in my life where I wouldn't have minded slapping the shit out of a couple of the talking heads in the media.

Montana Voters Are Supportive Of Congressional Candidate Body Slamming A Reporter
Several Montana voters like that Republican congressional candidate Greg Gianforte body slammed a Guardian reporter, according to local reports.

Gianforte threw down reporter Ben Jacobs to the ground at a campaign event Wednesday night. This came the day before a special election in Montana where Gianforte has held a solid lead in the polls over Democrat Rob Quist.

The Montana Republican was charged with misdemeanor assault by local police, but has denied Jacob’s version of the incident, saying that the reporter was aggressive and grabbed him by the wrist.

MSNBC political correspondent Garrett Haake tweeted Thursday that a Gianforte voter told him, “I think reporters have it coming.” Haake tweeted yesterday that he told a gas station clerk about the incident and she replied, “My kind of politician.”~snip~
There maybe more than a few as the article states, anyway if he loses then the media will crow about how they "got" him.
If he wins then they'll cry about being victims.
