A lesson in life and love
Clearly, I beg to differ re my beloved Tulsi. Nah, just can't bring myself to wallow in objectifying BS at the moment, but you all know how I feel... 😳😵💫
As for the rest of the post, with sooo much crap being rebooted and stuff, sure, Family Ties, why not?
Meanwhile, ack in the real world, there's this disturbing stuff; mind boggling among other things:
Read and no shit weep.
I'm not sure what the best part is - the "Catholic Saints", the Proud Boys manly edging, the "I know, Dad, I'm a Republican", the "all of us in public broadcasting", the Tulsi Gabbard. It's a buffet of snark, and I'm sitting down with a loaded plate!
Elyse was hot.
Way hotter than Tulsi Gabard.
Conservatism (capitalism/racism/sexism, etc) plus Idiocracy = the New Right. Checks out.
Also, ex-hippies = New Normies. Also checks out. Never thought I’d see a sketch where Alex Keaton was the most sympathetic character, lol.
What was that old adage? If you're a conservative before you're 30 you have no heart. If you're a liberal after 30 you have no brain. Where is "The Middle Way" today?
"No more fancy talk about budgets and infrastructure, that’s for losers. Know what our policy is? Kicking ass!"
I could see guys like Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley saying that as members of the Senate, even though I don't think either one could beat a ten year old in a street brawl.
I was never a big fan of Family Ties. I’d watch it occasionally but never found it all that funny.
Roy’s version, on the other hand, would compel me to watch every episode.
Watching Brooks and Douthat flop around trying to convince themselves that Republicans believe in actual policies is endlessly amusing. Except for the part where they're justifying fascism.
Deeply, delightfully cynical. Through a boob tube, darkly. Well done.
"Politically stateless" indeed. Of course neither of these guys could go for radical leftist Joe Biden and his wanton infrastructure spending and socialistic insulin-price-lowering.
It's like this David Brooks column I read a couple of weeks ago (forgive me, O Lord). Along with the expected both-sidesing, there's a plea, a wish that politics could go back to "practical solutions to our problems" as if Washington hasn't been in the hands of a political party doing exactly that for the past two years. Oh, if only Washington would heed the cries of our beleaguered American chip-manufacturing industry and propose some sort of legislation to help them out, but instead it's the Drag Queen Story Hour Act of 2021 and a $100 tax credit every time you remember to say "Latinx."
You do a lotta acid, Miller, back in the hippie days?
Good lord, now I have the theme song for that show going through my head. *shakes fist* Edrosoooooooooooq!
Hello Pulitzer? Do you do sitcom parodies?
Lol. Of course in my head canon Alex has been thru all the evolutions (vast right wing annti-Clinton conspirator, war-blogger, owned a complete old-timey “patriot” get up in the early Obama years) and works at Claremont now.
