Oh how times change, s**t happens, and suddenly dogs and cats are living together. Apparently it’s 1956 all-over agains and right-wingers are getting nostalgic for the wit & wisdom of comrade Kruschev.
Beck: Did you ever read Pravda?
Laffer: I did read Pravda, as a matter of fact.
Beck: Did you read that? Where they’re like, ‘What is wrong with the Republicans?’ We’re watching what happened to Russia — Pravda gives us more truth than the American press!
And you can tell this is even more thought out than the usual Beck craziness as the man is wearing his “Joe Scarborough Smarty Glasses”. As David Niewert notes, Beck doesn’t just rely on crazy-assed racists discredited pseudo-historians (hmmm, needs more adjectives) from America anymore, no he’s buttressing his
dementia case with a crazy Russian propagandist. When’s he going to start hitting up the writings of Trofim Lysenko?
The next thing you know he’ll completely get Thomas Paine’s politics wrong.
As a completely different aside, Karzai’s brother on CIA-payroll, problem — Lieberman’s wife employed by lobbying firm involved in Health Care reform — apparently not worth ever mentioning in the mainstream media.
