Bill Kristol, one of the wrongest men on the planet, nearly as wrong as David Brooks who is widely known as the Prince of Wrong, rode his father's intellectual coattails into punditry and is now a staple of Fox News and other outlets for bloviated air.
Cokie Roberts is daughter to famously missing politician Hale Boggs. She's the darling of NPR and staple of ABC News, appearing every Sunday on This Week with George Stephanopoulos, partnered with the chinchilla-pated Sam Donaldson, making a duo that is so goddamn vacuous they make George Will seem sane.
Yesterday and again this morning on her weekly NPR slot, Cokie opined about Obama's vacation:
"...I know his grandmother lives in Hawaii and I know Hawaii is a state, but it has the look of him going off to some sort of foreign, exotic place. He should be at Myrtle Beach and if he’s going to take a vacation at this time. I just think this is not the time to do that."
Yeah, that's right. Obama should have gone to Myrtle-fucking-Beach, the butt crack of the Eastern shore, so he wouldn't look so exotic. Maybe stopped of at South of the Border on the way, got hisself a cool Pedro sombrero and a trunk full of illegal fireworks.
Because no real American goes to Hawaii for vacation. That's just crazy.
And whose grandmother lives in Hawaii, anyway? Doesn't she know that, by law, grandmothers live in Florida?
At least Cokie knows that Hawaii is a state, so I guess we should be grateful for that.
Honest to God, could an addled, rabid marmoset be any more inane? And could an addled marmoset replace that patch of roadkill on Sam Donaldson's spotted noggin? And wouldn't Addled Marmoset make a great band name?
How do these people get their jobs? Is there an opening? Because if it takes saying stupid shit like this every Sunday morning to pull down the big bucks, I'll make the sacrifice and get drunk earlier.
I can start right away.
