We interrupt This Week's Discussion Question to bring you a very useful tip. At Altercation's "Slacker Friday," Charles Pierce offered up this bit of wisdom on the MoveOn Petraeus ad kabuki:
"...it's pointless to respond every time someone flings poo out of the conservative monkeyhouse. It's what happens in a monkeyhouse. You duck and walk away to go watch the penguins."So here's This Week's Helpful Tip:
The next time you click through Fox "News" Channel, think to yourself "Hey! Monkeys!"
Then duck and go watch the penguins on Animal Planet. (Or ESPN, since the NHL season's just around the corner.)
It worked like a charm this morning when we happened across Brit Hume and Bill Kristol on Chris Wallace's show.
One of these weeks, This Week's Discussion Question will have to be "How long before JuanWilliams stands up, tosses his lapel mic on the table, and walks off muttering 'I can't work with crazy people anymore...'?"
We also resonated with Mr. Pierce's thoughts on the possibility of another O.J. Simpson trial: "There aren't enough tackhammers in the world to drive enough nails into my eyeballs if this gets rolling again."
We now return you to This Week's Discussion Question.
