Stupid Thoughts

This is a country where Joe Scarborough, who is so fake he has to lie about his Thanksgiving day, is accusing Donald Trump of insanity.  If it hadn't been Morning Joe, it might have been Matt Laurer.  What a country.

The only clever thing I have ever heard from John Podhoretz (Full disclosure: I have never met the pizza man though I did have dealings with his parents) is his remark that Trump should be impeached for forcing on our attention the moronic Lavar  Ball, who single-handedly has done more to explode the idea of racial equality than anyone since President Obama.  Bravo.  Maybe I underrated the boy.

Speaking of whom, I have to say it is a joy to read the attacks on Trump--trashtalking goofball that he is--from people who praised Obama for 8 years, clearly--by his impromptu remarks and by the incredible stuff his speechwriters put in his mouth---the dumbest person in public office in my lifetime.   Obama made John Kasich seem like a man of intellect and probity.

One more thing:  I am sick and tired of the anti-Semitic ravings of women claiming to have been sexually abused by celebrities in entertainment--including talking heads on news shows and members of the US Congress.  Really, do they think we can't see through their secret agenda in attacking:

Matt Lauer

Israel Horowitz

Harvey Weinsten

Dustin Hoffman

Louis C.K.

Richard Dreyfus

Brett Ratner

Steven Seagal

Matthew Weiner

Mark Halperin

Charlie Rose

Jann Wenner

Leon Wieseltier

Al Franken

Andrew Kreisberg

Jeremy Piven

As the Kingfish would say, "Andy, I is resgusted!"

    Brief, but precious! Despite Obamaphilia becoming almost a requirement for continued citizenship, it is refreshing to recall the inspired rhetoric of our beloved ex-prez. I just can’t decide whether his best comments came on his numerous references to the “Marine Corpse” or his somber reminder that he’d campaigned for reelection in all 58 states.

    I admit I’m puzzled by the Podhoretz/pizza connection, though.

    Taki used to call him “Three Pizzas Podhoretz” because he was present when Podhoretz fils ordered and consumed that amount.

    Thanks, Dr. Fleming. Leave it to Taki! I must tell you that I’ve shared this post with my father; your mention of the Kingfish made his day!

    One of the things that has gone sick in our country is the boycott of Amos ‘n Andy, a TV show that featured fine Black performers from the Harlem theatrical scene. Tim Moore was as good a comic actor as ever played in a sitcom. “Oooah me!”
