A couple of headlines gleaned from the shrieking on the morning “news” shows today:
Vicious warmongering tyrant Trump acts in accord with his Russian masters’ wishes by launching the exact same sort of limited military action against Russia’s close ally as his predecessor did, in response to Assad’s use of Saddam’s chemical weapons against his own people!
Republicans destroy Senate forever by implementing the Reid Option in an UNPRECEDENTED assault against our beloved Constitution, which doesn’t mention the filibuster even once!
I swear, if it wasn’t for hysterical lies, propaganda, and bullshit of the purest ray serene, they’d have absolutely nothing whatever to say. One day soon, look for them to deny Assad ever had WMDs at all—which maneuver ought to give off a very familiar stench. But has anybody noticed how truly difficult it’s become for them to twist things around to suit The Agenda now?
Update! I only just noticed the new slogan on the splash-ad for CBS’s morning show: “CBS This Morning: REAL news.” Almost all of which is fake news, natch, in keeping with the long Progressivist tradition of sowing chaos and uncertainty by pretzeling the language until words mean the exact opposite of what they once did.
About all any sane person can do at this point is just shake their head and laugh at them in ironic and rueful admiration.
