So you absolutely need to enjoy this Seth Myers clip. You will laugh, learn, and share it with everyone you know.
My work here is done.
But I should respond to one of you who wrote in regard to this recent post (“Which Of These Republicans Do YOU Believe — I believe all of them.”)
Ronald S.: “While I understand you are not FOX News Fair and Balanced, perhaps some day you will also include the other side of coins. Like Colin Powell on Hillary Clinton (‘I would rather not have to vote for her, although she is a friend I respect. A 70-year person with a long track record, unbridled ambition, greedy, not [sic] transformational.’) So, while I always vote, why would I volunteer or contribute based on your biased presentations? Less ‘tribe,’ more complete, factual presentation, please.”
☞ I agree about the importance of being fair and balanced; disagree that here I was not.
There is nothing disqualifying about being greedy or ambitious or about not being transformational. There is something disqualifying about being a “national disgrace and international pariah” (as Colin Powell characterized Trump). So they are NOT equivalent, and it IS fair (I think) to make the case that many leading REPUBLICANS — not just Democrats — think Trump cannot be President.
Balanced in this case, I think, would have been to quote some of the many prominent DEMOCRATS who have terrible, disqualifying things to say about Hillary.
Except there are none, so I didn’t.
The more fact-based independent thought the better. If people are thoughtful and fact-based, as Ronald is, we will win by a landslide.
Enjoy that clip. Seth Myers nails it.
Quote of the Day
We've forgotten all the sacrifices that the people who've gone before us made to give us this wonderful life that we have. We accept it; we take it for granted; we think it's our birthright. The facts are, it's precious, it's fragile -- it can disappear.~Ross Perot, 1988
