Citizen Lame

When I last read anything of interest about Roger Ailes it was about his small-town homage to Lionel Barrymore's greatest role.

But that is not enough for the President of a self-proclaimed news organization -- fair and balanced and all that b.s.:

...for all his programming genius, he was more interested in a real narrative than a television narrative—he wanted to elect a president.

And it appears that thanks to his machinations for driving the GOP to the Right, he will once again elect one -- just the opposite of who he wants.

As much as I'd like to just cut to the chase and have him whisper "Rosebud", Ailes actions get even more disturbing, yet lamer. For Ailes who once "loved" Sarah Palin only to be the last person on Earth to discover she's a moron, has a new crush object -- apparently discovered at something that must have been sponsored by Lap-Band:

A few months ago, Ailes called Chris Christie and encouraged him to jump into the race. Last summer, he’d invited Christie to dinner at his upstate compound along with Rush Limbaugh, and like much of the GOP Establishment, he fell hard for Christie

I'm pretty sure that in all things, when Ailes falls, it's a hard one.

The three Creosote brothers at one table? Call for three buckets, and three wafer-thin mints.

"...he [Ailes] doesn’t want Fox to be seen as a front of the Republican Party."

Too freakin' late. You broke it, now you own it.

I think it's hysterical that Republicans and the media think Christie is a "rising star" when he wouldn't even be able to carry his own damn state.

Ailes, Limpballs and Christie together for dinner?

Holy shit, that must have put Ayllene Gibbons to shame.

No Dominican boys went unconsumed or unpumped at that get-together.
