The world goes up and the world goes down, And the sunshine follows the rain; And yesterday's sneer and yesterday's frown Can never come over again.
- Charles Kingsley, English Author and Clergyman (1819-1875)
I like Bob Beckel. If you’ve ever spent any time reading my blog, you probably know I’ve got a special place in my heart for people like Bob, or Glen Beck, who were out of control with their drinking, realized they had a problem, and overcame their addictions.
I have the deepest respect for everyone who’s overcome that and beyond my affinity for Bob in that respect, he’s got a good heart, he can argue a good case and I’m never going to hate someone just because we don’t see eye to eye on politics.
It’s a matter of perspective. I think Bob’s wrong nine times out of ten, and regardless of the fact that I’m right and he’s wrong, we should be glad for the different perspectives we all bring to the table as Americans because if everyone of us was in agreement, we’d be living in an Orwellian Nightmare just as sure as Saddam Hussein used to get 100% of the vote.
Cue the video . . .
The mouth cover was my favorite part and you know what? If I would have gotten poked like that, I’d have probably dropped some sort of similar f-bomb myself, but did you notice how after apologizing, the liberal Bob then denies full culpability by saying, “It didn’t get all the way out,” while the conservative took full responsibility?
By the way, screw you FoxNews for having one liberal pitted against four conservatives. That is so not what I expect from you. With your four against one format, you’re only one opposing viewpoint better than what would be MSNBC’s version of The Five.
