    Apostle of the Cult of Reagan. I don't know if this guy has had an honest job in the last twenty years, but he pops up as a rightwing shill on television, ubiquitously.
    We need term limits on those who are appointed to dispense the "conventional wisdom."
    I think time is up for Chris Matthews, Morton Kondrake, Fred Barnes, Tim Russert, Gloria Borger, Mora Liasson, Juan Williams, Pat Buchanon, Brit Hume, David Broder, Carl Hiassen, Robert Novak, Eleanor Clift, Christopher Hitchens, George Will, Cokie Roberts, Peggy Noonan, Andrea Mitchell, Charlie Black, Mary Matalin, James Carville, and many, many others.

    Any Generation X voices among the ones I just mentioned? Not a single one. With the exception of a few who have recently gotten face time, like Bowers and Markos, the Gen X'ers who get face time are neocon or fundie cultists like Ralph Reed.

    There is an established set of pundits dominated by the baby boomers or their elders, and it's been that way for at least twenty years. That's where we get the corporate line that no one believes in liberal ideals after they turn 30. At age thirty, everyone supposedly turns into a cheerleader for the corporate elite. There's a whole freakin generation that has rejected that notion, and marginalizing that generation or trying to co-opt them has been the operating frame of reference for punditry.

    That's one of the reasons I'm trying to establish a new television network.

    •  Ahhh.... I do not watch too much TV /Cable (0+ / 0-)

      talking head shows, or news for that matter these days.  Better time spent on Daily Show, Colbert, Olberman, BSG, Office, Earl, etc.  That's why I missed him.  Let's hope time is up for all these enablers and water-boys!

      Gore has some TV network established, as I recall. There is another... well, thank GORE for the internet and good luck with that!
