There are few more amusing and rewarding things in life than catching up with Charles P. Pierce's gleeful weekly recounting of the Sunday morning talk fests, starring as he puts it, "Disco Dancer Dave" Gregory, Bob Schieffer (who covered the Fillmore administration) and on ABC "The Clinton Guy Shocked by Blowjobs." I'll just direct you to this week's edition (which has been up for awhile) and go have some fun if you like. But a few highlights:
"I honestly believe that, if Clinton ran against Romney, Clinton would
get 500 electoral votes, because three Canadian provinces would sign up
just to vote in the election."
"Let me just say for the record that the image of Peggy Noonan's talking about what 'an old hand' might do is not an entendre that I care to double down on that early in the morning."
"Yes, God must love the poors, because He's allowed cruel and stupid
Republican economic policies to create so many of them." The GOP "has nominated a Walking Tax Avoidance Scheme for
president, after so rigging the economic system for three decades that a
Willard Romney was all but inevitable."
