Erich Pomfret commented on Thousands Are Petitioning Fox To Remove Megyn Kelly From Future Debates 2015-08-08 13:27:25 -0400
I’ve had Fox on in the car off and on all morning, and I thought I’d seen ugly divorces before, but compared to this one, mine was a lovefest. And, keeping with the divorce-marriage analogy, the ladies seem rather enamored of Carly. Might this mean a shift towards their acceptance of gay marriage?
Erich Pomfret commented on Fox Helps Validate Allen West’s False Rumor That Navy Officer Will Be Charged Over Chattanooga Shooting 2015-08-03 16:15:21 -0400
Rob Willhelm: Don’t count on ignorant West supporters to believe anything that denigrates their “war hero.” When his district threw him out of Congress, he (and they) claimed fraud for weeks, citing the fact that many precincts had more ballots cast than voters. I eventually gave up on trying to explain that each voter had two different ballots to fill out. If West himself was smart enough to understand the 2 for 1 count, he was also smart enough to milk the conspiracy cow.
Erich Pomfret commented on Fox News Licking Its Chops Over Upcoming Benghazi Movie 2015-07-30 16:43:52 -0400
Apologies for my lack of recent comments. It’s because I’ve updated my Fox drinking game. Rather than just downing a shot every time they say “Benghazi,” I also drink whenever they devote a segment to Hillary. Now, I’m going to start drinking a double whenever they use both magic words in the same sentence. See you after the election.

“It’s Not Misinformation If It Furthers Our Agenda” has a nice ring to it, maybe soon to replace “Fair and Balanced?”
Erich Pomfret commented on Mark Levin: Iran Deal ‘Planted The Seeds Of World War III’ 2015-07-15 09:21:08 -0400
Shamitty can get the gullible herd all whipped up into yet another world-is-about-to-end frenzy and convince them to buy more gold at inflated prices. Don’t know what Levin’s schtick is other than batshit crazy.
Erich Pomfret commented on Bernard Goldberg Tells O’Reilly ‘I Was Embarrassed’ Watching Jesse Watters In San Francisco 2015-07-10 11:25:58 -0400
Quite honestly, I’ve seen Watters embarrass himself and Fox much more severely than this on more than one previous occasion. DeBlasio last fall comes to mind first.
Erich Pomfret commented on Fox’s Tantaros Baselessly Suggests NYSE Shutdown An ISIS ‘Trial Run’ 2015-07-08 15:38:13 -0400
So that’s where my idiot Facebook friend got the idea. And here I thought her paranoia was self-induced.
Erich Pomfret commented on Here’s How Fox News Politicized USA Women’s Soccer Win 2015-07-07 15:43:02 -0400
Gee, I wonder if we could get a political “head-count” of the party affiliations of those who made the US victory some kind of “revenge” for Pearl Harbor?

If I may be Fair and Balanced, the Foxies are showing restraint compared to the real wing-nutters. Over the weekend, I’ve seen multiple reminders of this story from 2 years ago: http://www.theglobaldispatch.com/dozen-illegal-immigrants-in-texas-gang-rape-13-year-old-girl-nafbpo-says-end-dreams-of-amnesty-28843/.
Erich Pomfret commented on Franklin Graham Warns Christians About Gay Marriage Ruling: Prepare For Persecution 2015-07-02 19:46:42 -0400
With today’s Religious Right, talk of persecution isn’t a warning, it’s a promise. Indeed, it’s the very glue that binds them together.
Erich Pomfret commented on Tucker Carlson Suggests Obama Disarm The Secret Service If He Supports Gun Control 2015-06-22 11:41:56 -0400
I didn’t think the gun nuts could sink any lower after NRA Board Member Charles Cotton said that the shootings could have been prevented if only Rev. Pinckney (in his role as a State Legislator) had voted to allow closed carry in public buildings. THEN, he said, an armed member of the prayer group could have stopped the carnage. These people make me sick.
Erich Pomfret commented on Friend Of Clementa Pinckney Confronts O’Reilly About Fox News’ Inflammatory Race Baiting 2015-06-19 08:32:47 -0400
d d: I sadly but completely agree with you. It was a missed opportunity. Birtherism is barely a crumb in the pile of racist Fox garbage. O’Reilly won this exchange in the minds of his sycophants, and that’s where the battle must be waged.

Vice-President Oprah. He’s already proved himself smarter than McCain.
Erich Pomfret commented on Watch Fox’s Dr. Ablow Hilariously Debate Pastor Robert Jeffress About The Duggars 2015-06-07 16:23:33 -0400
Thanks, Antoinette, for the Facebook alert. I just spent an enjoyable few minutes perusing it. You’re right. He’s done.
Erich Pomfret commented on Duggar Daughters Suggest Their Real Victimization Was By The Media 2015-06-06 10:31:43 -0400
The deflecting done by these young ladies doesn’t surprise me but still Makes Me Want To Puke. I don’t say that lightly, having been round the block on this twice, as the son and later the husband of dysfunctional semi-survivors of “harmless” child “touching” by older male family members.

And most members of Organized Crime families are Italian, so why don’t youse just step over here for a minute, Mr. G, so as we can make sure everything is on the up and up. You know what I’m talkin’ ’bout, right? Let Rudy go through that a few times and see how he likes it.
Erich Pomfret commented on Beau Biden’s Death Brings Out The ‘Christian Compassion’ In Some FoxNews.com Readers 2015-05-31 14:26:42 -0400
I couldn’t find any comments section on the story shown in this post. (Has it been shut down, maybe?) I did look on another right wing web site, and the readers were mostly respectful. However, every one of them included some variation of the phrase “although I don’t like him,…” Writing a condolence like that is nothing more than a self-congratulatory piece of crap.

I’d never listened to Levin until one afternoon driving through rural Montana when I could only get one station. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. And to think this is the only radio entertainment these people get.
