Anchored to Reality


"An unreasonable comment to me is beginning with a statement that is contrary to fact and moving on from that premise: ‘Barack Obama is not a citizen; he is a Muslim looking to take down the nation.’ When you begin with that premise, you are out of bounds."

I love Shep like a brother, but I have no idea why he is falling off of the conservative tracks. I know this happens from time to time like that fella who wrote the excellent pieces for American Spectator way back when about the Clintons. I pray that Shep isn't gay like that fella.
FOX has to consider releasing him to the Communist News Nework or PMSNBC. Shep is no longer fair and balanced like Sean and my latest favorite -- Sir Dick Morris. If you haven't checked out Mr. Morris' YouTube channel, you're really missing out. Dick is the best Middle East commentator on the market today. I hope FOX fires Shep and gives Dick the whole hour. What I like even more about Dick Morris is that he shares the same first name as Patriotic President Nixon and Super-Patriotic Vice President Cheney. If Dick isn't available, I do hope they consider a show for the former Miss California or better yet, young Jonathan Krohn. This fella brought down the house at that conservative meeting -- even blew Rush off the stage. Young Jonathan is brilliant and has written books and columns on the conservative movement. I love this kid. After I read this far left misguided blog for all of its hate and misinformation, I search out Jonathan's stuff to get myself Right again. Forget Bill, Dennis, Newt, Ann and Sean, Jonathan is the future of the real conservative movement. I can just see Mr. Reagan jumping from his grave over this kid. I bet Mr. Reagan only wished he had a kid like Jonathan instead of that far left Socialist homosexual son of his who now fights to use embryos like baseballs. God Bless Jonathan Krohn.

Bill, why would Shep's sexual orientation matter anyway? Hardly pertinent to any political conversation.

Chris,
Knowing if someone like Shep is leading a full Christ-centered existence is important to everything we talk about here. My kids, neighbors and even wife ask me, "What's a full Christ-centered existence?" My answer is that it's a complete total relationship with the Lord Almighty. The Lord Almighty requires that every man be committed to a female that listens to his every command at least by the age of 14 1/2. If it happens later than that, it's OK, but you have to start worrying like me (I'm not sure about son Kyle). The woman in turn gives up everything for the man. That is true when it comes to Delores baking cherry pies for me.

If Shepard is not listening to the Lord Almighty's wishes, he is not leading a full Christ-centered existence which in turn means that he should no longer be working for a committed, patriotic business like FOX News. You see, from what I understand, FOX News is committed to having all of its employees lead a strict Judeo-Christian conservative life. I know that when I'm viewing Sean Hannity, I know I'm getting the real Christian deal. Plus, he's handsome to boot. So, yes, talking about sexual orientation is important with this topic.

He totally rules. I love me some Bill White.

Yes he does.

Of colleagues like Mr. Beck, Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity, Mr. Smith said, “There’s a lot of money in opinion, and those guys are fascinating, terrific entertainers. This is a news organization. There can’t be a Fox News without news.”

I like how he slipped that in there. He considers them "entertainers" instead of news. Nice.

I love Bill. Does he write for Betty Bowers?

Chris said...

Chez, indeed. I feel like Alice.

Using a call for decency and decorum as a ratings gimmick, or is this the return of what was formally known as class?
