Less Than 3/5's Of A Wit
So I'm sort of stranded for a couple of days - no 24 hour yakety yak digital blather, somewhat mercifully - but I come back from the frozen wastes, and I read this. Oh, and this.
G'head, if you haven't already - I'll wait.
Regular readers will no doubt already know my warm fuzzies for the hired mouth and his co-tyrants at the FOX sandbox - a more ignorantly paranoid batch of American exceptionalists and crackpot conspirators could not be found outside of an Andrew Breitbart acid flashback, but stating that the 3/5th's clause in the U.S. constitution was a '...step to abolish slavery' flies harder in the face of established fact than Flight 11 into WTC 1.
It's my opinion that no television host with a crack staff of researchers (or for that matter a staff on crack) can be this ill-informed unless a pre-existing mental condition involving serious reality distortion in math skills and history - or a willful, pathological maliciousness - is in effect...But I'll leave the reader to reach their own subjective conclusions about the sort of people who are well paid to disseminate such lies, and just whom those lies may benefit.
And this 'hiding the gun' thing - Oh, Glenn, you should be proud of your little popgun...But since you're so reticent to flaunt it, I've no choice but to give you a free upgrade, as seen above.
