All the hits, all the time

There are scribblers like Your Humble Narrator.
And then there is Bill Watterson.

“The Ginger Hitler Radio Hour.” Boy, that would’ve blown “This American Life” right off the airwaves, amirite? IHateMedia would syndicate that shit worldwide before you could say “Chinese virus.”

You’d never find ’phones for a head that swollen, though. The mic’ would need a pop filter and a set of windshield wipers. And none of the callers would be able to get a word in edgewise.

    i’d love to see trump on joe rogan drinking whiskey and doing bong rips. when alex jones was on his show it was a slow motion train wreck but entertaining in a gross way.

      Rogan is a machine. I don’t know when he finds time to sleep. Bill Burr is crazy-busy enough, but Rogan? Off the rails entirely and headed cross-country.

      • Robert Hansen Says:

        Rogan is both clever and stupid in the same breath. He recently said he’d vote for Drumpf over Biden. Then he wonders why his crew thinks he’s endorsing the Orange Menace. He claims he’s not a political pundit or expert, but just an ape. He claims “experts” (not citing a source) have determined Biden has dementia and is drugged up and so is Agent Orange. Thus, the “I’d vote for Trump”.
        He has some great guests, but when he and his comedy buddies are together on on his podcasts, the intellectual wheels fall off and overtake the car before going in the ditch. They have no basic understanding of many subjects they comment on, all Google-able in seconds, and do indeed sound like hooting chimps.
        But, still I listen….

        • carl duellman Says:

          he has had a handful of very interesting and knowledgeable guests. usually it’s entertainment types or mma fighters. maybe 1 out of 100 is good.

      • Patrick O'Grady Says:

        Yeah, I read that and thought, “Aw, f’chrissakes.” That’s the point at which some close friend should say, “Let the bong cool off for a while, Ace.”

        I have trouble following most of these celebrity podcasts. They drone on way too long for me. I love Bill Burr’s standup — he does a really tight hour — but his podcast drifts into ball sports and conspiracy theories and I find my attention wandering.

        Marc Maron often goes long at WTF, but I still check in from time to time. His chat with Ben Sinclair of HBO’s “High Maintenance” was worth a listen. I like that show a lot, even though I don’t smoke weed or live in New York. Probably because it’s about people instead of weed and New York.

          I listen very little but some in my circle listen more to these types, esp Rogan. I understand a lot of his audience use the fact that he gives air to the fringe (Alex Jones and others) as validiation of their points of view. I’m thinking the twenty and thirty-something hothead white-boys that do more thinking with testosterone than grey matter.

          Rogan thinks he’s innocently giving air to strange, funny-by-accident people, but isn’t he fueling the problem?

          • Pat O'Brien Says:

            I think so. Watched a few of them, including one with an ex pro cyclist. I gave up. Anyone who gives Alex Jones air time can go pound sand up their ass. I will buy the sand.

    I listened to Franklin D. Roosevelt and Donald Trump, you are no Franklin D. Roosevelt…

  3. B Lester Says:

    I shudder to think what’s going to happen when this asshat leaves office. Twitter, radio, and Fox? Will he make his own cable channel?

    The dismemberment of the Republic is well underway, I’m afraid. Is the American Experiment over?

  4. Shawn in the Gorge Says:

    My preference would be that the buffoon quietly resign and leave office immediately to do whatever the hell he and his brain minions decide he should do. I have remembered this false presidency as a void in time, place and intelligence. We need leadership that utilizes all the resources at his or her disposal and not some brain fart premonition. What was his name anyway???

    • B Lester Says:

      Sorry to guess that that won’t happen, Shawn. I too wish it would.

      I think at the very least, if Asshat Sr. ambles quietly off into the distance, his offspring are drooling over the prospect of becoming a family politico ala Bush, Kennedy, and Adams.

      I’m certain they’re not going away..

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      You don’t hear much from the trouser stains lately. That worries me. When the dummies are quiet, you just know they’re up to something.

    • Pat O'Brien Says:

      I hope that brats are preoccupied with watching what money they did have shrinking fast. The hotel and golf resort business ain’t so good right now. And, I hope they are leveraged to the hilt.

      • Patrick O'Grady Says:

        They’re probably selling the Air Force to the Saudis and deeding the Grand Canyon in perpetuity to Waste Management for a landfill.

      • Pat O'Brien Says:

        I still suspect there is a whole lot of insider trading going on. If so, tens of millions of dollars could be made in a day by knowing what the dumpster was going to say a few hours early or being privy to classified intelligence report. Boeing would be one example. Another would be the investigation into one senator’s leak to high roller supporters. And this kind of trading happens at the speed of a computer algorithm. Even faster when your computer is physically close to wall street. Milliseconds matter in the computer driven market.

      • Patrick O'Grady Says:

        O, to be sure. You know these lightfingered types are grabbing all the low-hanging fruit they can stuff into their Cayman accounts before the orchard catches fire.
