My level of disgust would be high even without the inherent transparency-based hypocrisy of conservatives. But seriously. People who claim that both sides are equally reprehensible: what is the liberal counter-weight to this kind of ridiculous invasion of privacy and indefensible attack?
I'm as young as I'll ever be.
Just to clear things up for the extreme right-wingers, here’s the difference between Bill Maher and Rush Limbaugh: the people who watch Bill Maher know he’s an asshole.
See the game? (According to Chris Wallace at Fox News,) I make fun of conservatives or Republicans because I’m a liberal, partisan ideologue; I make fun of liberals and Democrats because I want — as part of my brilliant yet cynical strategy — to maintain enough credibility to continue to make fun of conservatives and Republicans.
And that narrative of conservative victimization is the true genius of what Fox News has accomplished: any editorial judgment in news, or schools, or movies that doesn’t favor the conservative view is elitism and is evidence of liberal bias. Whereas any editorial judgment that favors the conservative view is evidence, merely, of fairness — and done to protect them from liberal bias.
And if you criticize Fox for this game, guess what that’s evidence of? How right they are about how persecuted (conservatives are). It is airtighter than an otter’s anus.
