You Can't Make This Stuff Up ...

No doubt the left often disagrees with Tucker Carlson.

But on the Dec. 20 edition of his MSNBC show, Carlson made comments that were just plain goofy.

Follow along as Carlson has this odd back-and-forth with New Republic senior editor Michael Crowley and former Bush media advisor Mark McKinnon:

CROWLEY: But as far as Bush admitting we‘re not winning, he was starting to look like that guy, remember Baghdad Bob, who said, you know, the sands of Iraq are soaked with the blood of Americans. You know, this was as the Marines were rolling into Baghdad. Bush was — Bush could not maintain the state of denial anymore and fiction. It's what everyone knows and at some point the president has to seem like he knows it too.

CARLSON: Well I don‘t know. I disagree. I mean, I hate the war passionately, but I like that about Bush. I like the fact that he was in this kind of Teddy Rooseveltian way. You know what I mean, almost like you don‘t believe what your eyes tell you. I‘m the guy who knows the deep truth and the deep truth is victory. I mean, I think it‘s important — failure is so scary.

MCKINNON: Yes and it‘s not an option. It just can‘t be and so he is committed to finding and securing a way forward that amends the strategy and he is doing that now. But failure is not an option as he said and it shouldn‘t be. And it shouldn‘t be communicated that way from the president of the United States.

CARLSON: I like a tiny bit of B.S. I know nobody agrees with me.

A couple of follow-up questions for Carlson:

-- For most of us, when "you don‘t believe what your eyes tell you," you could be described as unrealistic, even delusional. Why is this a good quality in a president? Should the lives of our troops be at the mercy of someone who fits this description?

-- If some B.S. is good, is a lot of B.S. great? Back in March, you agreed that the Bush Administration has a "pattern that the rhetoric does not match the reality on the ground." A pattern of false rhetoric would seem to be more than a "tiny bit of B.S."

Maybe this goofiness from Carlson is why his show has abysmal ratings and was moved from prime-time.

whoop, I didn't realize you you had a degree in psychology or are you coming to this conclusion that the President is crazy from personal experience. How about debating in an educated manner and stop with the schoolyard name calling. Then and only then will you be taken seriously.

Since Tucker deals in loads of B.S. himself, it is not surprising that he is willing to give W a pass. Carlson's act is so tiresome and transparent, I marvel that his guests don't laugh in his face. His constant tactic of proclaiming his total disagreement with Bush is always followed with a juvenile attack on the Democrats. The guy is mindlessly partisan while he claims the high ground of not having to defend the plane crash that is the Bush regime. MSNBC must be desperate for programming for keeping this right wing chipmunk on the air.

"tiny" bit of BS?

Tucker needs his eyes checked. He's off by several orders of magnitude. Unless he is trying to be cute, like those who refer to the Atlantic Ocean as "the pond".

When's Tucker getting fired?
They've tried everything and nobody can make his show a success.

Tucker is a pussy

A momma's boy who went to Preppie school. The kind of kid you could have dropped with one punch but didn't because you felt sorry for him. He never looked you in the eye. Now as a conservative "pundit" (that's being generous) he considers himself a major factor in politcal showbiz.

However my guess is that his demographic market is about the same as Bill O'Reilly's ie: Averaged age is 70 y/o.

From personnel experience!

I have no concern how you take me! I will never agree with you because then I would be considered crazy! I agree with the following:
