You should read the entire post by Greg Opelka here (Breitbart’s Big Journalism.com), because it is about the left wings tunnel vision on the racism narrative, but before you do that I wanted to share a snipped from that post that borders on brilliant. It is the kind of writing I aspire to (missing miserably and often) so when I find it I have to share it.
Used as I (and I suspect you) am to Matthews’ cheesecloth logic and scattershot, half-cocked accusations, I make it a point to miss “Hardball” as often as possible. When Fate is kind, on any given week I am able to miss all five episodes of The Interrupter’s Diatribe-Disguised-as-Dialogue program. Not catching Chris’ hour of senile logorrhea gives one a rare feeling of euphoria—akin to finding a free parking spot in downtown Chicago on a Saturday night, or—back in the days when apartment life compelled me to frequent laundromats—finding a vacant dryer with time still paid for on it. Missing ”Hardball” is just one of those simple pleasures in life that puts a little extra spring in your step and a smile on your face. I’m grateful to MSNBC for affording me this little weekly bit of heaven on earth—missing “Hardball”—especially now that I can no longer thrill to missing “Countdown with Keith Olbermann” five times a week.
I’ve missed every episode of Hardball, myself. And my life is a better place because of it.
