Fast and furious; that is how the political news keeps coming in. Today I’ll try and briefly comment on some of it.
If you have any doubt that the people currently controlling the Republican party want to maintain their positions and expand their control by any means available, please continue to read today’s article. If you have already come to that realization read to gain more conversation fodder.
At first glance today’s title and subject matter will appear at odds. That is unless you heard Alex Wagner’s comment during the “handoff” from Chris Hayes on Friday night. It can best be described as gallows humor.
Caution: In the second paragraph an inference is made to a word that violates the PG standards.
It may not be nice to gloat about other people’s misfortunes but I’m doing so as I write this (very early Monday afternoon). Extremely late this morning I received news that Tucker Carlson and Fox News were no more. I’ll expand on my choice of words below. A weird thought: If those tales I was told as a child of Purgatory are in fact true, I guess I’ll do a little bit more time in that sin bin (hey, a rare hockey reference) for this article.
This is pretty much an open letter to people who vote Republican and watch Fox News. The rest of you just might find it simultaneously entertaining and terrifying.
