Here’s my proposed epitaph for M. Tucker Carlson. “He who lives only to make waves is destined to drown.” Now it’s time for burial at sea.
The man has no principles, no compass, no orientation and no guiding philosophy other than prodigious pandering. Carlson merely seeks an audience that will tell him what to say and think. You have to be pretty rudderless to manage to get fired at CNN, MSNBC and Fox Spews. That’s the Triple Crown.
But let’s all disabuse ourselves of the notion that Fox Spews had a sudden attack of scruples. This was all about showing the other 1,357 libel and defamation plaintiffs who are lined up at their door that Fox has taken some “remedial action.” That, and ultimately Murdoch was more afraid of Tucker’s skirt-chasing than he was of his ceaseless lying. Nobody wants HR holding on line two.
I guess you can say that Carlson’s career was ultimately a Lemon. Oh, wait. I am relieved that CNN finally put Don out of our misery, and his own. Did you ever get a glimpse of that morning show? Euthanasia was the right, and humanitarian, decision.
Strange days, indeed. Most peculiar, mama. Virtually no one in America wants Biden to serve a second term. That includes Biden. He clearly doesn’t want to do this. He’s just takin’ one for the club. But it gets stranger. Biden will be an underdog to any GOP nominee other than—wait for it—That Orange Turd. He’ll kick Trump’s ass again, if it comes to that, just like he did the first time. But I don’t think that matchup is in the cards. The Orange Turd is going to be preoccupied with trying to stay out of an orange jumpsuit.
Now lemme get this straight. Ed Sheeran allegedly ripped off Marvin Gaye? How could he do that, even if he wanted to?
For now, goodbye, Ruby Tuesday.
