Err America update

My wife and I watched the HBO special about the birth of Air America. Kind of funny, and yet somehow pathetic. I started wondering how the hole "BusHitlerHalliburtonWMDLIESLIESLIES!" thing was going. Fortunately for me, I didn't have to wonder too long. Dirty Harry over at Jackson's Junction has the goods. Excerpt:


Liberals want the facts confronted and then to be told why it was the United Nations that made Iraq free or why it was Clinton policies that caused the rise of freedom in the Middle East. They want an intellectual, logical, and compassionate explanation of why the Bush successes are luck and how liberalism birthed them. Instead they get diversions and non-sequiters about Hitler and Halliburton.

I heard Dennis Miller confront Harry Shearer about the success in the Middle East and ask about giving Bush a little credit for it. Shearer refused to even pretend he was asked the question and went on and on about how we would invade Iran and how Bolton was this or that. It was pathetic. Miller asked again. Same response.

Conservatives turn to talk radio to hear, among many things, why we're right. In the face of it all, please tell us why we're still right. Air America can't do that. All they can do is ignore the question. That's mighty cold comfort and no way create to a revolution.

Update: I'm always behind the times. Of course Michelle Malkin was onto this story before me. Of course she was.

I'm embarrassed to admit that I thought Air America would die shortly after the inauguration.

They're still there.

And still neither entertaining, informative, nor funny.

None of those people knows jack about comedic delivery or timing. They come off sounding snide & whiny.

That's because they are snide and whiny.

Never underestimate how much money liberals are willing to sink into this venture. They've convinced themselves that it will work and, despite all evidence to the contrary, they're going to keep plugging away.
