The Morning Rant

"Another observation about the progressive shrieking of Chappelle's comedy is, they're overplaying their hand. Again. Do they really think a comedian who has a show calling out the cancel culture is going to now allow himself to be silenced by the cancel culture?

"By no means. Instead, progressives have pissed him off. So is Chappelle a conservative? I doubt it, but it scarcely matters, the point is, he now knows where the true crazies are, and he doesn't want to have anything to do with him.

"But hey progressives, he's a guy who might've been on your side. But not any more. He may not be on my side, but now he's definitely not on yours. Keep it up with your crazy sh*t, and you may even red-pill him. It reminds me of how foolish you were during the Kavanaugh hearings when you bombarded Senator Susan Collins' office with death threats. Why didn't you realize she's squishy enough, particularly about abortion, that you might've been able to peel off her vote from the Republicans' already razor-thin majority? I mean, if you had stuck with Ford's accusations and kept it at that, as lame and unbelievable as they were, and dismissed all the patently absurd nonsense about Kavanaugh organizing rape parties during summer vacation and staging rape orgies on yachts off Rhode Island, and told Michael Avenatti he wasn't helping and please get lost, you might've had a chance to pick off enough squish RINOs to derail the Kavanaugh nomination.

"But instead, all of the wild conspiracy theories caterwauling and personal threats probably hardened Collins' vote into a 'yes'. Perhaps she would've voted 'yes', anyway, for the sake of party unity, but maybe not. I can see her going against the party on this one. But she didn't, probably thanks to the all of the craziness and hate directed at her.

"So keep it up, you might red-pill her, too. Now wouldn't that be a hoot?

"The progressives are growing more unhinged every day, week after week, which is probably why they trying desperately to get the 'Trump is insane' narrative to stick. They're merely projecting their own derangement."

Sally Kohn: "Nobody tweets out dumb stuff on the internet like I do."
Chris Hayes: "Hold my beer."

Dumbness level = 965 millikohns.

You know what's weird? This is not a screen grab of a tweet that was quickly deleted. Hayes' own show put it out there like they thought it was some great insight. I did a screen grab because I thought somebody would be embarrassed enough to take it down, but no, it's still out there.



Because Using The Bible To Insult Someone Is Exactly The Purpose It Was Written For:

Monday's celebs: Nobody explicitly spelled out the connection, but here is the comment that was the closest:

73 I had not heard of Mia Kirshner, but then I don't watch Star Trek: Discovery. That I suppose is the link between Mia and Mark.

Posted by: Wolfus Aurelius at September 02, 2019 11:32 AM (4c+5M)

In the Star Trek universe, Spock's father, Sarek, was Vulcan and his mother, Amanda, was human. Sarek was played by Mark Lenard in ST:TOS and Amanda is played by Mia Kirshner in Star Trek: Discovery. I originally was going to use Jane Wyatt, who played Amanda (and shared screen time with Lenard) in ST:TOS, but I thought the connection would be too obvious. Lenard, of course, also played a Romulan starship's commander in an early TOS episode.

Some actors naturally look more the Vulcans than others. Lenard is one of those. I don't know if it's his resting scowly face or his angled eyebrows or a combination of the two, but he definitely has that look. Heh. You know who also could've played a pretty good Vulcan? Former ABC newsreader Sam Donaldson. Look at this photo. And he wouldn't have needed much make-up, either. They just could've slapped a couple of pointy-ear prosthetics on him and he'd have been good to go.
