Last week the dead-enders at Save Tucker, determined to rescue Tucker Carlson—definitely one of my favorite writers and television personalities—from what turned out to be an unavoidable cancellation, sent along an "action alert," which read in part:
MSNBC has chosen to become a propaganda machine for the far
left. MSNBC Executive, Phil Griffin, is leading the ideological cleansing by
canceling Tucker Carlson's show and banning major conservative commentators
from the air so no one challenges Olbermann or Abrams. Please email
And then, finally:
Keep your emails constructive and respectful but let NBC know that MSNBC is off course if their goal is covering the political news.
Alas, I spent too much time trying to figure out the
respectful, constructive way to call someone a left-wing hit-man jerk who
should be fired and the whole thing got away from me.

The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
