What I will not write about today



Sometimes I get so frustrated and/or disheartened and/or annoyed by some of the news stories of the day that I can’t bring myself to write about them. Here are a few recent reports that made my blood pressure hit the roof. I am avoiding delving into them at length out of concern for my physical and mental health.

See what I mean? So who’s up for a couple of Margs or a trough of wine?

i do not get drunk i get awesome


Video- Pat Buchanan: If Welfare Is Like "A Narcotic," "Obama Is A Drug Dealer Of Welfare"


I figured the little bit we've seen of Bay the past few days were no substitute for good old Pat.


Video- Pat Buchanan: Same Sex Marriage Is "Unnatural And Immoral," And Obama Is Trying To Impose It "By Coercion"


I know ya'll were worried about ol' Pat sitting at home in his boxers and knee socks pining for the good old days. Well, fear not, as long as Fox News exists, he has a home for his bigotry. Via Media Matters.


VIdeo- Pat Buchanan Jokes: Earlier, "Obama Was So Low In The Polls Even The Kenyans Were Saying He Was Born In The United States"


Aw, Pat has found the home he has always wished for... Via Media Matters.


Video- Pat Buchanan Thinks Rick Santorum Has Gone Too Far


Oooh, that stings. Via Think Progress.


Pat Buchanan: "My days as a political analyst at MSNBC have come to an end."

Pat Buchanan has left the MSNBC building. All together now: Awww.


And as the door hopefully hits him on the way out, he's throwing a Poor Little Me/Blame Those Icky Libruls tantrum:

After 10 enjoyable years, I am departing, after an incessant clamor from the left that to permit me continued access to the microphones of MSNBC would be an outrage against decency, and dangerous.

The calls for my firing began almost immediately with the Oct. 18 publication of Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?? A group called Color of Change, whose mission statement says that it “exists to strengthen Black America’s political voice,” claimed that my book espouses a “white supremacist ideology.” Color of Change took particular umbrage at the title of Chapter 4, “The End of White America.” [...]

If my book is racist and anti-Semitic, how did Sean Hannity, Erin Burnett, Judge Andrew Napolitano, Megyn Kelly, Lou Dobbs, and Ralph Nader miss that?  [...]

[M]y four-months’ absence from MSNBC and now my departure represent an undeniable victory for the blacklisters... I know these blacklisters. They operate behind closed doors, with phone calls, mailed threats, and off-the-record meetings. They work in the dark because, as Al Smith said, nothing un-American can live in the sunlight.

Oh geez, no wonder I've had trouble typing this post! I nearly forgot to turn on the light in my dark evil dungeon of an office after I mailed a threat, made some clandestine phone calls, and held off-the-record meetings with my fellow blacklisters.

Uncle Pat found me out!

Now why would we un-American types want to get Buchanan off the airwaves? Oh that's right (scroll).


AUDIO: Pat Buchanan blames "militant gays", "people of color", Van Jones for pending MSNBC termination


Think Progress has more. Good riddance, Uncle Racist Bigot Pat.

Speaking of Political Carnival, it's fundrasing time again:

If we are one thing here at TPC, it's being up front. We need to raise funds so we don't have to worry about expenses for the next three months, both for site upkeep and our own mounting bills.

2012 will be a hugely busy (election) year, and we intend to dedicate all of our time to bringing you the latest breaking news (and humor, snarkitude, videos, commentary)... which means not having to worry about basic things like heat and food, what with Mr. Laffy being out of work in two weeks and both of us chronically unemployed and completely devoted literally 24/7 to TPC.
