    I wonder if Tucker is a smoker. I can’t hear it in his voice. I wonder* if that’s just performative outrage.

    *I don’t really wonder.

    "They closed the gyms during Covid. Anyone who closes a gym during a pandemic that kills people who were fat clearly doesn't care about your health at all."

    There is so much stupid in those two sentences. It's just incredible how much stupid he can spew on a daily basis and still keep his job.

    Not really, he’s just trying to reach his stupid target audience. And succeeding.

    It is HOW and WHY he keeps his job.
    It is the single reason they pay him $35,000,000 a year.

    It is just incredible that anyone listens to him, but, apparently, several million people do. And, this level is stupid is exactly why.

    Sometimes I contemplate how rich I could be if I just didn't have a moral compass.

    But I do, and I'm not rich.

    But y'know what? It has gone way past marginal; it would really suck to be Tucker Carlson.

    "Can your diamonds talk to you.
    Can you see them shine?
    Keep them hiding in your room.
    Can they guide you in your time?"

    If you walk under a scrap yard magnet while it is turned on you can totally scramble your moral compass.

    I wake up every morning wishing I could be the sort of person most people are. I sometimes wish my family hadn't reared me to be better.

    Good sweet potato pies are getting more difficult to find so your decision is probably the right one.

    Told my sis that we need to get in on the grift. When DeSantis overtakes Trump in 2024, we drive over to the Let's Go Brandon store on the Jersey shore (there is one), bring a cameraman and film us throwing out the Trumpy bums & planting the DeSantis flag. Then start selling Ron 2024 crap to the local rubes.

    Here's when a Stern wackpacker filmed Tuckems fly fishing in Central Park. Surprisingly, he was pretty mellow but didn't reveal who he was.

    First they came for OAN and I didn’t notice. Then they dumped Newsmax…

    It sounds like Newsmax gave themselves the finger. Why in these times would Newsmax think a cable/satellite provider would give them an increase?

    Wonder if carriers feel they may be liable for the lawsuits too.

    Because like their viewers they are still living in the past and refuse to embrace the future?

    (yes, I know it was rhetorical)

    You think more of people than I do. I think it is a real likely that the Newsmax executives were that stupid.

    I'm no expert on Newsmax, but MY hypothesis is that they thought their new friends in the House might help them get a higher fee. They asked, and were refused. Now they're in phase 2 of their More Revenue plan, namely, hoping the House successfully pressures DirectTV.

    Usually the simplest explanation is correct.
