Cognitive Dissonance

"Democracy! Bah! When I hear that I reach for my feather boa!" - Allen Ginsberg

50 notes

How long do you think Sean Hannity’s show would last if four times in one sentence, he made a comment about, say, the President of the United States, and said that he looked like a skinny, ghetto crackhead? Which, by the way, you might want to say that Barack Obama does.

Brent Bozell, from conservative think-tank Media Research Center, on Fox News Thursday commenting on Chris Matthews’ statements about Newt Gingrich

Um…

Like seriously.

Here’s the thing - Matthews said Gingrich “looks like a car bomber” in a riff about him being/looking creepy. Not exactly high-brow political commentary, but also not embedded in racial stereotypes like stating Obama looks like a crackhead from the ghetto. 

Hint for Brent Bozell: When you’re attacking a fellow talking head for resorting to the lowest common denominator, it’s best not to seek a, um, lowest-er common denominator.
