Breitbart's Last Supper?
Who knew? Andrew Breitbart, Tucker Carlson and other Carlson invitees sat down to dinner, prepared and served by Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn. Prof. Ayers details the circumstance, process and experience for posterity.
I'll admit that I haven't looked for Wingnuttia's stammering clamor for a special prosecutor to indict Bill and Bernadine for "wet work", but I can't imagine they wholly passed on the opportunity.
Besides which Tucker Carlson survived? More fuel for replicant theorists?
Breitbart podcasted about the occasion: “We were exposed to the two most sophisticated dinner party-throwers in the world…This was their battlefield and they couldn’t have been more charming…I think I’m going to try and reach out to Bill Ayers and try and figure out if I can maybe do a road trip across the country with him—him and me—and he can show me his America, and I can show him my America, and maybe we can film it and let people decide. Because I’ve got to be honest with you, I liked being in the room with him, talking with him.”
That road trip was never a likely prospect, but it’s no longer even a distant dream or a far-out possibility—a few days after our dinner Andrew Breitbart died suddenly outside his home at the age of 43, too young.
Life—short or long—always ends in the middle of things.
Driftglass goes there. The squishy middle?
Anticipating the fallout from the Centrist Circle Jerk Panel held on April Fool's Day's Press The Meat w/ Joe & Mika, DFB, Captain Obvious and the Norman Lubloff Choir...??? WTF???
TV Guide: Panel: Joe Scarborough moderates with Tom Friedman, David Brooks, Jon Meacham, Fmr. Rep. Harold Ford (D-TN) and Mika Brzezinski.
Such an auspicious, objective, clear-headed, fact checked bunch eh? It was probably stellar Sunday Morning Fare. I really shouldn't piss all over it since I could not bring myself to watch it. Then again, I've no wish to watch looped reruns of MSNBC's Lean Forward spots either which made watching UP with Chris Hayes such a tedious balancing act. I've opted to not watch it LIVE anymore, so I can now FF past the urge to run a metal skewer between my ears.
These are the folks who are going to "help" us answer the question of what has gone so terribly, horribly, no-goodly, very badly wrong?
I mostly feel like I live in an occupied country. My life and activities take place in some gray zone of detachment; and I PAY for the privilege? Outside the bubble. A sometimes amused, mostly incredulous place. I wave my arms, scream and shout at the folly, but it neither notices nor heeds the warnings.
Maybe I should start holding dinner parties for the bubblers too? Nah, I have those damn metal skewers and don't resist temptation well.
