Pearls of expression.

Tucker Carlson yesterday on the Dem hysteria about Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey.
It's not a constitutional crisis if the Constitution allows you to do it.

I do miss O'Reilly, however, I'm really warming up to Mr. Carlson. My only concern is that, eventually, Liberal guests will not want to appear on his show.

Upon reflection, there will always be an endless number of Libs who will never be convinced that they're not the smartest person in the room, so my initial fear is unfounded.

I hate the fact that he fell before the feminist onslaught of vague outrage. Fox hung him out to dry after effecting the complete vagification of the channels. Gorgeous babes as far as the eye can see, the rare one not selected for brains AND being positively luscious and then Fox is horrified that O'Reilly supposedly strayed off the reservation of ultra-sexual probity and reserve. Not to mention the well known phenomenon of women getting slightly giddy when in the company of powerful or rich men. It's like G.B. Shaw's idea of marriage as combining the maximum of temptation with the maximum of opportunity. Men should know the pitfalls of mixing work and lust in these times, it's true, and I've heard stories of morons just not taking no for an answer, let alone having the finesse of a tank. Still, Fox rid itself of a proven eyeball magnet when Sen. Grassley's idea could have served them better, namely, "suck it up and go on."

O'Reilly was reliably centrist, which is an immense blessing in these times. He eschewed opportunities to make more principled points but then he was the one making millions on TV and not me so hats off to him.

Carlson is just terrific and I'm glad to see that he's rocketed up in the ratings. Sui generis and that's a fact. It is as you say. He seems to have an unlimited supply of deranged fools willing to appear on his show. It's the defining characteristic of the left to think that one's own wonderfulness will carry the day before any opponent.
