Cancelled

This week, an audio feast fit for a leprechaun: we’ve got Rank Punditry® on Biden’s Big Speech, we’ve got er, commentary on Shakespeare (not kidding!), we got worst accents in entertainment history, the guys try to fix the Oscars, and –breaking news and a GLoP exclusive– Rob Long has been cancelled. We’re not going to spoil it here, so you’ll have to tune in to find out why.

    Did the Grammar Police cancel Rob for misusing “retromingent” last time?  (Just “leaving a trail” does not make something “retromingent.”)  I guess I’ll find out!

    Jonah, Metamucil is your friend. You must be religious about taking it every day. I should know as I was in the emergency room years ago with serious diverticulosis and haven’t had a problem since using Metamucil. Won’t help with Twitter though.

    Jonah’s daughter: “I keep forgetting Joe Biden is President.”

    Me: “It’s ok, kid. So does he.”

    I’ve got to see what passes for an argument to former intellectual Jonah Goldberg. Biden is planning on spending more money than any president in history making him the most radical president we’ve ever had (Jonah’s pre-election analysis said this would not happen). And when people talk about a backlash he thinks its worth pointing out that the GOP also has been reckless when it comes to spending. 

    Isn’t this like the abused wife, who after been abused for a while finally stands up for herself, but the abusive husband says, “No, you can’t fight back now, you let it happen before!”

    That is Jonah’s argument. Trillions of dollars in spending can’t be opposed because before people supported bad spending bills. 

    Jonah is what happens when you spend too much time on Twitter.

    The Oscars have become pretty much unwatchable, but if they brought in Ricky Gervais to host it, I’d watch at least the first 15 minutes.

    A lot of this is explained by people who simply can’t admit they were wrong.

    JPod inadvertently touched on this when he said he is much more likely to respond to negative emails than to positive ones. The negative ones — especially the ones that make a good case — hurt his ego, which needs immediate first aid.

    Jonah is applying the logical fallacy known as tu quoque:  “you’re another”.  Ronald Reagan ran what in retrospect look like tiny deficits to defeat the Soviet Union; therefore, Republicans can’t complain about Biden’s insane deficits, incurred for no reason at all.

    As with its immigration policy, the Democratic Party puts its own interests ahead of the country’s interests — always.

    I am more tolerant of fake-sounding accents ever since I listened to an interview with the director, Richard Lester, an American who lived in Britain for 40 years.

    Half the time he sounded like an American doing a bad British accent; the other half, like a Brit doing a bad American accent.

    Dick Van Dyke has said that his dialect coach, misunderstanding Mary Poppins as a silly farce for kids, taught him an exaggerated, “music hall cockney” accent.

    Why look back at Ronald Reagan’s “tiny deficits” when we have a much, much more recent example?  It is not Reagan’s deficits that are killing Republican talking points, it is Trump’s.  For three years (not counting year four, because Covid) the deficits were higher than under Obama’s second term with nary a peep from the the Republican Congress.

    Political memory is short.  No one under the age of 35 has any memory of the country under Reagan and most of the 35-50 year olds have only hazy memories.

    On the declining ratings for the SOTU speeches over the past several years, I have an alternate theory. 

    When I was younger our political class at least appeared to be serious people doing serious things.  Our legislators actually legislated.  I used to feel that it was almost my duty as a responsible citizen to tune in.

    Now it’s all just a joke with a few members of the leadership ramming through whatever they feel is their priority, and the rest just seem to be auditioning for gigs on Fox or MSNBC.  Why bother?

    But we are – or at least I am – referring to the movie.  And even if Dick Van Dyke had used a more “serious” accent in the movie, it still would have been a silly farce for kids.

    It’s just possible you’re not very familiar with the history of  American film …

    Mary Poppins was released on August 27, 1964, to critical acclaim and commercial success.  It became the highest-grossing film of 1964 and, at the time of its release, was Disney’s highest-grossing film ever.  It received a total of 13 Academy Awards nominations, including Best Picture – a record for any film released by Walt Disney Studios – and won five:  Best Actress for [Julie] Andrews, Best Film Editing, Best Original Music Score, Best Visual Effects, and Best Original Song for “Chim Chim Cher-ee”.  In 2013, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”. … Mary Poppins is considered Walt Disney’s crowning live-action achievement, and is the only one of his films which earned a Best Picture nomination during his lifetime.—Wikipedia

    Hmm.  Looks like some of Obama’s deficits beat Trump’s worst.  Oh, I didn’t catch the fine print:  you were comparing only Obama’s second term!

    • 2020 – $1 trillion budget deficit (projected)
    • 2019 – $960 billion budget deficit (projected)
    • 2018 – $779 billion budget deficit
    • 2017 – $665 billion budget deficit
    • 2016 – $585 billion budget deficit
    • 2015 – $439 billion budget deficit
    • 2014 – $514 billion budget deficit
    • 2013 – $719 billion budget deficit
    • 2012 – $1.1 trillion budget deficit
    • 2011 – $1.3 trillion budget deficit
    • 2010 – $1.3 trillion budget deficit

    You can’t control spending politically under a discretionary central bank regime. Right now it’s better to think about political power.

    The debt to GDP started going wacko under Reagan. We have never looked back.

    Watch the long interview of David Stockman on a website called real vision. It will cost you a dollar.

It became the highest-grossing film of 1964 and, at the time of its release, was Disney’s highest-grossing film ever. It received a total of 13 Academy Awards nominations, including Best Picture – a record for any film released by Walt Disney Studios – and won five: Best Actress for [Julie] Andrews, Best Film Editing, Best Original Music Score, Best Visual Effects, and Best Original Song for “Chim Chim Cher-ee”. In 2013, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”. … Mary Poppins is considered Walt Disney’s crowning live-action achievement, and is the only one of his films which earned a Best Picture nomination during his lifetime.—Wikipedia
