I started off putting a post together on this video:
…under the assumption that Wayne Rogers (who used to play Trapper John on television) was the ‘liberal elitist douchebag‘ mocking the poor, telling people concerned about higher energy/food prices to get a better job, and generally acting like a complete and utter [expletive deleted]. Hey, former Hollywood actor: seems reasonable enough to assume, right?
Well, don’t assume: the aforementioned [expletive deleted] was actually one Stephane Fitch; I am sure that there’s probably a bunch of reasons why it’s unfair to point out that Fitch is the guy that predicted big things for Bank of America right before it tanked, but what the heck: ‘liberal elitist douchebag’ is a perfect description of the guy, anyway. In contrast, Rogers actually comes across here and elsewhere as being reasonably dyspeptic about this entire ‘I’m here from the government, and I’m here to help your economy’ nonsense that wafts out from Dizzy City on a regular basis, so consider this entire post to be my penance for jumping the gun too quickly. Even if Rogers actually is himself a LED, he wasn’t being one here, and that’s the important thing.
PS: Is this Cashin’ In program as bad as it looks? – I don’t actually watch broadcast news.
PPS: We are definitely having problems with rising energy/food prices.
