Friends on CBSs Good Wife Appalled by Man Who Supports Palin and Owns Guns
NewsBusters ^ | October 21, 2013 | Brent Baker

Posted on 10/21/2013 5:36:28 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Some more bashing of Sarah Palin on Sunday night’s episode of CBS’s The Good Wife, but the scene also managed to deliver an illustrative dramatization of liberals in a bubble displaying arrogant condescension toward those who dare stray from liberal orthodoxy – and how they learn to despise the Fox News Channel via Jon Stewart.

A couple who are old college friends of liberal lawyer “Diane Lockhart” visit and meet her fiancé, Gary Cole as Sarah Palin supporter, gun owner and ballistics expert “Kurt McVeigh.” An appalled “Francesca” despairs: “But his views, Diane. All his views. He supports Sarah Palin!”

She soon lectures, before getting cut off: “Issues matter. I know we’re all supposed to disagree and smile and go home and pretend it’s all some big tennis match, but people end up poorer, guns end up killing people. Global warming keeps destroying our-”

(VIDEO-AT-LINK)

“Francesca,” and husband “Lyle,” played by left-wing comedian Robert Klein, meet “Lockhart” and “McVeigh” in a restaurant where they learn he owns a gun. “Francesca” exclaims: “So you don’t think Sandy Hook changed anything?”

Later, at the apartment of “Lockhart,” played by Christine Baranski, “Francesca expresses her disgust with how her soon-to-be-husband likes Palin. “Lockhart,” a fan of Hillary Clinton’s, laughs as she acknowledges, “I fell in love with a Palin supporter.”

To which “Lyle,” just after grabbing hold of Sarah Palin’s book, Going Rogue, on a bookshelf, scolds: “It’s not funny, Diane. Did you see her? She’s back on Fox.”

“Lockhart” points out: “Oh, you don’t watch Fox.” “Lyle” counters, showing where liberals learn about FNC: “They show clips on Jon Stewart.”(continued)

I put this show on my Do Not Watch List a long ago for its Marxist BS and the nasty characters it portrays. Chris Noth, one of the leads, is the brain-dead jerk who accused Tea Party Republicans of being racists last week.

I watched it...they seemed to be mocking the liberals. But I can see how others might make the other call.

When our city went to digital TV, the local tinfoil hat group managed to severely restrict the radiation pattern of the new antenna, leaving us with only two TV channels.

Thanks to you, a$$hats, I never again have to watch so much of the stuff I read about.

I have recently been watching a lot of old TV shows and as a rule they are far better than what is out now.

I have noticed a few liberal ideas being pushed very strongly.

“Hawaii 5-0” is as anti gun as any show I have ever seen. It even seems silly at times. Dragnet which is conservative in many ways seems to feel only cops should have guns but they don’t hit it really hard and I do like to watch SGT Friday walk without swinging his arms. Also Wyatt Earp with Hugh O’Brien lets a bit of anti gun propaganda get into the show.

Daniel Boone is the worst one about evil White men and he is often saved by a Black man or Indian. The theme song says that he fights for America to make all Americans free.

All in all Hawaii 5-0 is the worst on guns. They pure hate the idea of civilians having guns.

For some reason I just don’t think that is what D. Boone is doing.

I actually enjoy it. Yes it’s a bit of a soap opera but it’s always involving and can be wickedly funny when they’re tweaking liberal sensitivities.

Heh. I deleted my CBS station from my tv-set’s channel rotation back in 2009, when Letterman was making his vile attacks on Palin, making ‘rape’ jokes about her underage daughter, and then wrapped it up with that faux, insincere “apology” of his. I’d still like to punch Letterman’s face into a bloody pulp.

Haven’t watched a single second of CBS since.

Are they one of the programs who are going to voice their phony Obamacare is good? I like the program; but if this is what it is leading to; forget it.

“I’d still like to punch Letterman’s face into a bloody pulp.”

There is only one reason why I’d like to become world famous, so that Letterman’s “people” would beg me, time and time again, to come on his show, and I would always and forever decline.

I’ve felt that way for a long time before any of us ever heard of Sarah Palin.

He is a rude and nasty man, earns his living at it, and enjoys it. A really despicable person.

Yawn. Nothing new from the Alphabet networks. I remember when real virulent anti-handgun plots were on almost all shows back in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

They ONLY wanted to control handguns back then. Long guns would not be affected, they said.

I will take 5-0 with its anti gun message over 95% of what is on today. Dragnet is still good TV.

You can keep Daniel Boone and The Rifleman. Neither one ever did anything for me.

Me-TV is one of the best things to happen to cable in my opinion in a long time. It reminds me of those great little independent channels of many years back that ran essentially whatever they wanted and could afford.

I also like how Me-TV promos some of the stars that are still around of the old shows. Digging up Kevin Dobson of Kojak fame is a good one.

Quite easy to defend Sarah.

When they attempt to portray her as stupid, ask them;

“How did she manage to out negotiate the OIL COMPANIES, so they now pay Alaskan’s a much larger percentage of their revenue?”

As for her “quitting as Gov.”

She was forced to spend a personal fortune and significant State fund defending against frivolous law suits.

It seems to go both ways some of the time.

Later in the same episode, Diane meets Kurt's friends, who just happen to be four astoundingly good looking, late twenties women, who warmly welcome Diane with the line "We're the fire breathing conservatives you've been hearing about".

Needless to say, Diane is ONLY concerned that they are twenty something and knockouts. Conservative world class ballistics experts doesn't even cross her mind.

Dan Quayle, a somewhat conservative man, actually was vice president of the United States for four years, but did they hound him after he left office? Of course not! They had no worries that he might be an opponent to any of their perfumed princes, so they left him alone. OTOH, there are literally dozens (sometimes hundreds) of columns written about her every day! Do the math.

How many low-info voters actually read articles? But they do watch tv, I woud imagine. What better way to stigmatize and smear her before the election than to regularly make references to her in popular tv shows?

Maybe ... but it's great that after all this time, she's still living rent-free in their heads. :-)

Yeah, it’s been five years, and Sarah has been living rent free in the libtards’ heads. Eventually the heads will explode.

I enjoy it, too. It should be noted that the hottest guy on the show is “The Conservative, 2nd Amendment Rights Guy”.
Poor, liberal, Diane just can't help herself!

“they seemed to be mocking the liberals.”

I think perhaps you give them credit for intelligence they do not possess.

Believe it or not, the title character offered a pro bono defense to a surrogate mom who wants to carry a baby to term in spite of the biological parents’ instance on an abortion in the episode before this one. I have to wonder if a they’ve slipped a more conservative (by Hollywood standards at least) writer onto the staff.
