Pot / Kettle Alert

From last night’s Tucker:

CARLSON: This was my 20th–literally, I think it was my 20th Oscar night in a row where I didn’t watch any of it.

WOLFF: It was really bad. I don’t know if it’s stagflation or bad weather or whatever, but I was just not in the mood, friend. I blame stagflation.

CARLSON: Watching rich people congratulate themselves, no.

Rich people congratulating themselves. The punditocracy in a nutshell.

Oh, and more people watched the Oscars on Sunday than watch Tucker in a year.

    Rich people congratulating themselves.

    Works for me as a capsule description.

    Oh, and more people watched the Oscars on Sunday than watch Tucker in a year.

    From which you conclude … what? I’m sure that more people living in my area read the local right-wing tabloid in a day than read your blog in a year. So …?

    “From which you conclude … what?”

    It’s called a kick to the gones, Scott. They don’t always need external justification.

    I appreciated that thought as a nicely done snarky comment.

    Especially apt for a year when the numbers were way down for the Oscar broadcast…
