And then he stuck out his tongue and mooned us.
No, that would be the democRATS as pumped up by the MSM.
I agree, Chris Mattews, Keith Olbermann, Rosie O'Donnell and Rachel Madcow fans are SO insipid and shallow...

It needed a BARF ALERT. So if 18% of Republicans do not know that Democrats control the legislative houses, does that mean that 82% DO know that? How many dems know? Seems they don’t know or forgot who has controlled them for the past few years.
“Poorly educated, terribly informed, intellectually deficient and downright stupid people need idols.”
I guess thats why Obama ran a rational and reasoned approach to governing while maintaining the dignity of the individual? That McCain with his hero worship and empty platitudes worked so well on the poorly educated? Damn republicans sucking off their neighbor and worshiping an Arizona community organizer. Yep, idol says it all Joel.
Maybe another 10-20 points on this dufuses IQ may enlighted him?
You are a liberal; why be so sheepish about the truth? Your whole argument would be toothless if you didnt throw that false caveat in there, wouldnt it? Liar, liar pants on fire.
Huh? I would love to see the poll he is citing. I don't believe this at all
No, friends, it is not Conservatives who worship idols, it is Liberals.
“And then he stuck out his tongue and mooned us.”
That sums it up pretty well. Amazing that we are getting so much dumber through an education system that is run primarily by liberals.
Wow! He sure knows how to win people over to his point of view /not.
We are in a spiritual crisis on our planet because the dark hearts are ruling the world. They are the ones who are only able to see the world through the eyes of personal gain, without concern for the whole of humanity. The dark hearts are empty vessels that need to be filled with outside energy, power and material wealth. They are truly godless beings because they have closed off all access to the God force, or to the light of God/Goddess/Spirit or whatever you are comfortable calling it.
It reminds me of the old conversation starter, "Now, some of my best friends are..."
Listening to Glenn Beck, I am willing to make the observation that I see him evolving from a talk show host to a philosopher. I know that there are many who can't stand him, but I enjoy the way he presents his concepts for consideration, unlike the liberals who cram it down our throats and dare us to reject their concepts.
Where does the left get such deep thinkers?
“. . . all I see are huge quantities of totally incorrect and distorted information, absolute nonsense, outright insanity, abuse of logic, exaggerations, toxic half truths, intentional disinformation, racism and bigotry, and extreme political views that have no connection to reality and offer no workable solutions to the nation’s complex problems. Slick sound-bite slogans push propaganda substitutes for verifiable facts.”
Curiously, that’s all I see emanating from the left, especially this Administration.
This guy is under the impresson that Seiu employees have PHds.
he probably needs to get educated on that point.
Both images are by the same artist and even incorporate the same "OBEY-GIANT".
His whole premise is flawed. Sure, the above mentioned pundits draw a large listening audience within the world of talk radio/TV commentary. But when you compare those numbers with the American population you will discover that most people don’t listen to talk radio or watch the talking head TV shows.
I have no figures to back up my assertion, just a general sense. I could be way off here.
This guy should mail this letter to all registered Republican’s and Independents.
I completely agree with you. The author is a kool-aid drinker that can’t handle the truth from the conservative media. The problem for the liberals is that the socialist actions have spoken louder than words and Americans are waking up to the fact that Barry was something other than advertised. Even some of the liberal buyers are having remorse now and the polling reflects it.

Oh my. I do believe Joel’s narcissistic supply tank is empty.
I too enjoyed the reference utilized, 2ndDivisionVet.
I agree. I think the alinskyite “non-partisan” author lies through his teeth.
I started to tell this toad just how stupid and dishonest he is, but you have to register at the site to comment, and I won’t give them the hit. Apparently this guy considers Olbie, Schultz, Madcow, etc. intelligent and honest.
I know a few people exactly like this guy. He’s a leftie who claims to be “independent” because he’s too cowardly to admit he’s a leftist, but considers himself a genius and anybody who dares to disagree with him an idiot. Like the guys I know, his personal life is probably a total failure, for which he blames everybody else.
THere are two broad types of opinion writers. Those who seek to reach out to people and change their opinions to match that of the writer, and those who seek to validate the views people already have in the hopes they can build a loyal audience so they can keep getting paid.
This author is clearly of the second type, since there is no way what he wrote would ever persuade those he argues against to change their minds.
I have no problem whatsoever being shown I was wrong, where and how I got there and perhaps even offer an alternative direction of thought.
Everyone's an evil and/or insane idiot with no validation for the statement.
I don't go into barrooms anymore because of the inability to have an intelligent conversation.
There were a couple of pubs I enjoyed in the late '60's/early '70's in Boston that were a joy to lift a pint in.
As you can see from this idiots article, this is just another example of ‘All Democrats are Liars’ thesis that I have been promoting for years. For this idiot liberal slime ball to state that ‘he is not a liberal’ is absolute bull sh*t.
Right out of the birthplace of the Progressive movement...squeal, 'lil piggy.
A larger number of Democrats in 2008 were “unaware” that Congress (house and senate) was already being run by the Democrats.
The poll appeared during the 2008 election.
But again, this author is telling half-truths and distortions....
Typical class envy from a bitter leftist.
He probably does pretty well as a professor and "head of an environmental consulting firm," although that could be anything from a big corporation to a landscaping truck.
Still, no matter how much he makes, he thinks it unfair that he is soooooooo very smart (all his smart-too peers tell him so) and yet there are rubes who make much more money than he does.
He needs the government to come in and equalize the pay scales, because these disparities irk him so.
At his core, he's driven to embrace leftwing fascism by his own envy and greed. And we're all too dumb to agree with his goals.
Okay, who pooped on this guy’s breakfast?
Hirschhorn does precisely what he accuses Fox of doing.
“Consider recent Pew Center Research poll results that showed 18 percent of Republicans do not know that the Democrats control the House of Representatives and 35 percent do not know who the Vice President is. “
He fails to mention that in the same poll 29 percent of Democrats do not know that the Democrats control the House and 38% do not know that Joe Biden is the VP.
And who does Hirschhorn rely on for his assertion about Fox distorting the facts - the Soros funded, self proclainmed Progressive media watch dog, Media Matters.
Clearly the guy is self delusional. He was right in some regards. He is condescending and an elitist simpleton. Libertarians come in all shapes and sizes. The ones that think they are superior to others should check their hubris at the door. Like it or not this is a representative democracy and the people will have the last say. Without doubt and as the Founding Fathers clearly understood, populism has its dangers, but then so does elitism and all other ...isms.
Try harder! It may eventually fall within your grasp.
I think M. Medved was talking about this poll yesterday. The number for Democrats not knowing that Democrats control the House was something much larger.
Dang! That’s some rant! It took me a half-dozen paragraphs to figure out he wasn’t talking about Olbermann.
Who only attacks conservatives...
I want revolution and true reforms...
He wants someone with muscles to tell those other guys what to do...
and see elections as useless anachronisms.
Exactly. If he wants to know your opinion, he'll tell you what it is first. Don't ask to have any say in his perfect revolution.
My idols are the founders of this country. Not Mao, Stalin, Lenin et.all. His are the latter.
Only mouth-breathing conservatives need idols? I give you ...
Al Gore — brains of a hatrack, ethics of a hyena.
Joe Biden — makes Al Gore look like a Nobel Prize winner.
Michael Moore — could swallow a Buick or two Smart Cars. Creates propaganda so lopsided it tips over laying down.
Che Guevara — two-bit toady who murdered his way to the top of a third-world dungheap.
Bill Clinton — morals of a drunken frat pledge.
And then there’s the “transparent” “hope-and-change” champion of the Little Guy, Barack Obama ...
Yep. Conservatives shouldn’t be so quick to idolize the unworthy ...
