Incomparable report has to wait: We were struck by something Lawrence said on Wednesday evening’s Last Word.
Also by comments on Thursday.
We thought the comments may shed some light on Lawrence’s conduct during Campaign 2000, when the fiery pseudo-liberal kept attacking Candidate Gore as a liar right through October 2000.
The conduct of dead-enders like Lawrence helped send Bush to the White House. From there, it was on to Iraq!
It’s not that our nation’s recent history actually matters at this point. Fairly clearly, our discourse is all about narrative now. It’s narrative all the way down!
Just in case history makes a comeback, we thought it might be worth recording what Lawrence said this week. But history will have to wait. MSNBC still hasn’t transcribed Lawrence’s programs from Wednesday and Thursday nights.
Why did the anti-Gore dead-enders engage in their dead-end conduct? We thought Lawrence’s comments may have shed light on this historical question.
That said, Lawrence’s “news channel” is rather haphazard in its basic operations. If it ever gets around to posting its transcripts, we’ll offer a possible perspective on our recent history, for those recall what that is.
For a wondrously bungled statistical claim by George Will, we recommend this must-see letter in today’s Washington Post.
To see Gail Collins use the wrong statistic, you can just click here. (California and Texas are fairly close on their teenage pregnancy rates.)
The bungle by Will is an absolute classic. More on Collins’ latest lesson in loathing next week.
