We can sniff out the phonies of any Fox News panel, and are tired of listening to a bunch of PR-placed "experts" sitting in their overly air-conditioned newsroom, talking about what's happening outside. How do they know?
The big question for the future is: Will younger voters remain Democrats as they grow older or, when they become fogies, will they also become Republicans?
'People appreciate me for being unapologetically black, unapologetically truthful and unapologetically Christian.'

If the only places conservatives can get their news bias-free are sources committed to their own cause, there is no need to face up to "reality" as such. It's an endless loop of victimization and self-justification.
KVOR talk-radio host Jeff Crank and his producer were chatting Jan. 5 about how horribly trashy CNN's New Year's Eve special was. But one thing that really pissed off Crank was CNN's first on-air kiss of 2013.
Shouldn't we stop inviting the Jonses, Taitzes, and Becks of the world on national television, letting them embarrass themselves, and then scurrying back to our columns, blogs, and Facebook pages to cite them as representations of mainstream conservative thought?
