I saw that. Chris Mathews was beating the crap out of both of them, and while I loathed the permenently etched smile across the face of the young
democrat, the real stand out was the young republican.
The look in in his eyes when he talked about wanting abolish all form of abortion was telling. But, the real fun part came when Chris Mathews just
railed into him for not volunteering to go to war himself. In a single instant, he killed the kid's credability.
I mean, a better answer could have been "Hey, I got a bum knee from playing ball" "hey, I got a family to support, and a sick Mom", all things
that would have been a legit reason to stay at home. But, instead?
He was so decidely earnest about this here "Culture War"
Well, I hate to tell you folks, but there is no culture war. It's a shine on. It's mental masturbation for the Red State folk, subsidized by the
very liberals they tend to hate.
That's right, Fox News.
Or, in it's many other liberal variations: FOX tv, FX, Twentieth Century Fox, Fox Searchlight, Fox interactive, Direct TV. All run by liberals, all
programmed to entice and titilate. So, we get Bill O'Reilly and a host of conservative heads waxing poetically about the loss and decline of american
values, and those evil hollywood liberals.
Meanwhile, I can click up exactly three stations, and find swearing, nudity, sex and violence on a single airing of THE SHIELD (Which I love, by the
way), written, produced, and televised by those same hollywood liberals.
The best part? O'Reilly grosses over 40 million dollars a year for News Corp. The Shield does around 80 million dollars, and captures nearly 3 times
as many viewers.
The bottom line: the Culture War is silly, over indulgent hang wringing for people who feel their lives spinning away from them.
Just say no to Corporate Jesus.
