Quote(s) of the Day
"'Sesame Street' can awkwardly slam FoxNews from the comfort of their stodgy old PBS studios… Meanwhile, we have the cool kids on our side: Dennis Miller, Greg Gutfeld, Andrew Breitbart and yes, even Glenn Beck."
-- From the blog post "Sesame Street Trashes Fox News," written by "Stage Right," at web-douche Andrew Breitbart's site, Big Hollywood.
"I first saw that episode last year and couldn't believe what I was hearing. We're watching Disney more now, but I have to monitor to make sure I explain things to my daughter when it does get left leaning."
- Breitbart commenter MerNJ
I never really bothered getting into one of the most absurdly egregious examples of the right losing its shit over absolutely nothing -- that would be the umbrage it took at Fox News supposedly getting dissed by Sesame Street's Oscar the Grouch -- because I really figured I'd cut the Tea Bagging Army some slack on it. They've become so damn adept at playing the role of the professional victims these days, I wanted to let the dumbest thing yet that they've gotten themselves into a pants-peeing twist about slide. But then I went back a couple of weeks and read the Breitbart piece and thought the better of it, because it's one thing to be stupid; it's another thing to be stupid and arrogant about, of all things, the fact that you've got Dennis Miller and Glenn Beck on your side.
As for the second quote, it just works so beautifully on so many levels.
