Letters from the Lunar Outpost

No man can be brave who thinks pain the greatest evil; nor temperate, who considers pleasure the highest good"Cicero, Great Roman Orator, Politician, and Philosopher (B.C. 106-43)

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.

  • Real dude, real passion, real profanity. I’m the same way.

  • Mike, I like you, like Bob, though I hardly ever agree with him. Tweeted him saying that The Five is not a good format for him, it is turning him into something he never was before. Do you see it, too? Agree, to pit one against four is not right. Forces Bob into a corner and I don’t like what I am seeing happen to him. He needs to move away or The Five needs to fix their format.

    • It’s totally unfair for him to be pitted four against one like that, you’re right on that. Until you’d put it in that light, I’d never thought about how that could bring out the worst in someone, he’s like a cornered animal on that show. (But often, I’ve imagined how there’s one reason he puts up with it, it’s called PAYCHECK.)

      If they ever fire Bob Beckel, I’m one conservative who will start a campaign to BRING BACK BOB, but even better, they should just get a format that has an equal balance. Debate the issues, let the fur fly, that’s what I want to see.
