If you don’t watch Tucker Carlson’s nightly “openings,” you’re missing some of the best and most entertaining commentary available:
Ridicule, Alinsky tells us, is the unanswerable weapon. Ridicule of a self-described comedian who no longer even tries to be funny – the last time Stephen Colbert even made an attempt at humor was well before the election of Donald Trump to the presidency – is devastating.
Tucker isn’t just more successful than “comedian” Colbert, he’s funnier. Let that sink in for a moment. It portends well for the future, though perhaps not for the future of televised comedy. And with that, it’s back to my fiction labors.
