For New Years resolutions, it’s time to pull a Henry Kissinger.
Since I suspect not a soul in the world has any idea what I’m talking about, an explanation is undoubtedly in order.
At least 30 years ago (it may have been more than that), I was groping with an idea for a New Years resolution and as he often did at that time, Henry Kissinger, whom I firmly believed should have been in jail as a war criminal, appeared on some TV show pontificating on how to solve the problems of the world.
What a perfect New Years resolution. I vowed that if ever I were watching TV and this vile excuse for a pundit ever appeared, I would simply change the channel.
Not only was I successful in that New Years resolution, but I have followed it for more than 30 years. Of course, as time has gone on, I’ve been required to reach for the channel changer less and less. Is Kissinger still alive? You can be sure I won’t mourn his death.
So for 2012, I’ve pulling a Henry Kissinger.
If ever Dick Morris should appear on a TV show I’m watching (and let’s include radio in this), I will immediately change the channel.
Although he’s not a war criminal like Kissinger, Dick Morris is the most vile, lowlife scum on the political scene today, and he’s constantly on Fox News (apparently under contract to make up hundreds of lies each year) either with O’Reilly or with others like Hannity or Greta The Stammerer but then I’ve already given the up.
Just as I turned on the TV last night, arriving back safely from hitting numerous white outs (I kid you not) on I89 through Vermont, there was Dick Morris making up more outrageous lies. Last time he said that Ron Paul would do worse against Barack Obama than any other Republican; I proved his lie by going to the Real Clear Politics average and discovering in fact that Dr. Paul does better than all other Republicans than Mitt Romney.
Apparently Morris didn’t get the message…or if he did, he simply chooses to deliberately spread his lies. Last night, he actually said that Ron Paul would lose to Obama by 20 points when in fact the RCP average has Dr. Paul down 7.7 points as opposed to 8.9 for the Eft (a favorite of scumbag Morris), Perry by 12.5, Bachmann by 15.0, and Santorum by anywhere from 10 to 15.
Dick Morris is an out and liar.
20 points indeed! He just makes things up out of thin air. Dr. Paul would draw more Democratic and Independent votes than any other Republican; he really could beat Obama; and ABC News poll has him within five points (49-44) but apparently the Vile Morris chooses to ignore that and every other fact. Yes, this is the same Dick Morris who when asked by O'Reilly to conduct his own poll earlier last year chose to completely leave Dr. Paul off the list.
No human being can be closer to pond scum than Dick Morris...(oops...I can actually think of one, but that's another story...maybe I'll get to His Vileness at the end of this blog).
Not only does he make things up, he does so in the most malicious manner possible to prove his fantasies.
Life is too short to allow oneself to be deceived by any lowlife scumbag, and since Dick Morris is the consummate lowlife scumbag, I hereby resolve to turn the channel whenever his smug smarmy face appears or even when his voice (most distinguishable after all) darkens some radio frequency.
Morris has made a career out of fooling people since, like the Eft, much of what he says appears to make sense. However, once you discover someone is a liar, you need to consider everything he says in that light.
Fox News does a disservice to its viewers by constantly foisting this charlatan upon an unsuspecting public. Not only that, it probably pays him a fortune to make things up.
Just like with the war criminal, I had no power to prevent the media from bringing him on, I have no power to prevent Fox News from using this phony foot fetishist, but I do have power over my own life.
No Soup for You, the Soup Nazi said on Seinfeld.
No Morris for Me—in 2012 or ever—be it resolved.
It’s such a great resolution that I’m going to widen it. If you ever see me leaving the House floor when His Vileness rises to speak, it’s because I’ve also resolved that the only way to deal with a certain Rep (there may be more than one) is to simply ignore him, at all times and in all places.
His Vileness of course can speak all he wants, including the delivery of the most lengthy and logically tortured parlimentary inquiries known to man, but no rule says I have to listen his pontification. I resolve I won't
No Soup for You.
No His Vileness for Me.
