On Fox News the other day, Bernard Goldberg said to Michelle Malkin:

“We go to the American people and we ask them if they can pick out Kansas on a map and they can’t. We ask them if they can pick out England on a map and they can’t. We ask them who the Vice-president is, they don’t have any idea. Who’s the Secretary of State? “I don’t know.” Then we go to them and ask them what they think of the Lewis Libby commutation? I don’t care what the American people have to say about these things.”

Oh yeah, Mr. Goldberg? You and your gang thought We, The People were Einsteins six years ago. Now we're supposed to be dumb? Furthermore, why do you assholes make it hard for people to vote, for example? As it is, the purple fingers in those doomed elections in Iraq seemed to be more accurate than, let's say, the Diebold machines in Ohio.

Besides, maybe you don't care, but any Republican up for re-election sure does. Go ahead, ignore those polls at your peril.

Do you know why?

It's simple.

People had had enough.


As an unknown philosopher said, "If you don't wanna be bullshitted, you better know what bullshit is." Which, by the way, describes Bernie's book perfectly.

And except for the lobotomized 28%, people can't ignore that the putrid stench oozing from the White House anymore. That Haliburton air fresher personally autographed in blood by Dick Cheney ain't working too good. Not when everything is going wrong in America, and it's getting worse, and it doesn't look like it's going to get better.

People can't afford gas, can't afford rent, can't afford cars, can't afford medical insurance, and can't afford poverty. So, oddly enough, they don't want to hear a rich, tanned, well-fed talking head wearing a thousand dollar suit on TV pontificating about Bill, Monica and The Blowjob anymore. Little Neo In Dreamland doesn't want to swallow the blue pill anymore.

Welcome to the real world.

Fox News: Gays! Lesbians! Welfare! Immigrants! Clinton Blowjob Clinton Blowjob Clinton Blowjob! Bad bad bad bad bad!

Us: Fuck you! How am I gonna pay the mortgage? How am I gonna pay for my Mom's surgery? How am I gonna pay for my retirement?

Fox News: Tax Cuts! Get rid of Social Security! Work at Wal-Mart!

Us: Bullshit!

Fox News: No! Don't use your brain! If you do, the terrorists win! Aaaaiiee! Logic! Our Kryptonite!

Ah, I love the smell of bullshit in the morning. It lets me know that something has gone bad and it needs to be thrown away. Now.

Hey, Bernie? Grab a shovel.
