30 thoughts on “Tucker Carlson Promotes Viagra As Virus Cure”

  1. another “maddening simple solution to the titular puzzle” according to the book of john

    John Oliver discusses The Da Vinci Code: the book, the film, and, for some reason, the cultural phenomenon.

    so tuck’s simpleton solution to the virus is viagra and oliver’s cause for the current ills of society is the apple (metaphor for the evil of social media which one could say spread lies about and anti-cures for the virus)? 

  2. BTW, there’re other ways to also get nitric oxide (virus miracle cure touted to tuck by the doc) – spinach, beets, rhubarb, dark chocolate – if one is in need of same.

  3. Also, hibiscus tea.  Eh, the folks at Viagra probably pay better.  Or, maybe he’s doing it for the reaction.

    The meme, which came from the official account for the Texas GOP, used a photo of a COVID-19 test site line in New York and included the text, “If you can wait in line for hours for testing … You can vote in person.”

    “…such an approach is “driven by a perspective that other people who don’t believe what you believe are the enemy, rather than fellow Americans.”

    “..,experts on propaganda and internet misinformation said, the meme did exactly what it was intended to do. “The goal is to further divide people, but divide them by making them feel they’re part of a group,”

    “You are being rage farmed,” John Scott-Railton, a senior researcher of disinformation and cyberattacks at the University of Toronto’s Citizen Lab, wrote in a tweet to people who were reacting angrily to the meme. He said that responding to the tweet was providing the GOP with a bigger megaphone: “Your angry quote tweet = the goal.”

    “Rage farming” is big ag these days.
    The crabgrass they’re sowing only dies out from lack of attention to the little PR stunts, while Dems go on building the new and giving folks something to support because it makes their lives better.

  4. this is an interesting tact to take.  will it succeed?

    newsweek via msn:

    Dustin Thompson, a Capitol riot defendant, asked a court on Friday to appoint the U.S. Marshals Service to subpoena former president Donald Trump and his allies.
    His attorney, Samuel H. Shamansky, listed names of witnesses to be subpoenaed, including Sidney Powell, Rudy Giuliani, Lin Wood and former Trump adviser Steve Bannon, according to a court memo.
    Shamansky alleged that those witnesses are “involved in the planning and execution of the attempt to disrupt the certification of the 2020 presidential election.”
    “Considering the significant roles these witnesses play in the legal and political communities, and the evasiveness that some have historically shown in the face of court orders, Defendant submits that appointment of the U.S. Marshals Service is necessary in order to effectuate his right to compulsory process and ensure that the same is accomplished expeditiously,” the court filing reads.
    Though it is unclear whether a court can approve a request by a public defendant to appoint a U.S. marshal to subpoena Trump and his aides, Shamansky told Newsweek on Saturday that courts have the power to order marshals to serve the process of subpoenas.
    “We believe it is appropriate that the marshals effectuate service [and] in order to effectuate that constitutional guarantee you have to get the deputy at the party served,” Shamansky said. “Now, one option would be that we can hire a process server to chase these folks [Trump and his allies] around, and if the court declined to authorize the marshals to do it, that’s what we’ll have to do.”
    Thompson was arrested last January in Ohio on multiple charges related to the Capitol attack, including theft of government property, parading, and demonstrating or picketing in the Capitol building, according to a court document. He pleaded not guilty to some of the charges.
    Shamansky said that it is important to subpoena those high-profile witnesses because they are “central” to Thompson’s defense.
    “Trump and his allies made an intentional effort to brainwash citizens and use them as pawns, as puppets, as tools to meet their goals, and that’s why this ‘Save America’ rally was hatched and created, and that’s why Trump lied to people. In an effort to whip them up into a frenzy and get them to do his bidding, and unfortunately, people were duped into following his request,” he said.

    Alabama GOP gears for fierce Senate primary clash | TheHill

    The nominating contest is largely a contest among Rep. Mo Brooks (R) and Katie Boyd Britt, the former chief of staff to retiring Sen. Richard Shelby (R), whose seat they are running to fill. Also in the fight is Mike Durant, a former Black Hawk pilot who was shot down in Somalia in 1993.

    The primary represents a clash of resumes that appeal to various flanks of a fractured GOP, from an incumbent hardliner with an endorsement from former President Trump to a politico with deep ties to the business community and establishment lawmakers to an outsider Army veteran making his first foray into politics. And with none of the three establishing themselves as an early frontrunner, Alabamians are gearing up for a slog.

  6. pogo, i predict dawgs will just barely beat back the tide tonight – maybe 1 pt and that will probably be in OT – so stock in plenty of beer, popcorn and kleenex.

  7. patd,  you’re in good company.  Vegas oddsmakers put it at 3 points last I checked.  Both teams are very good and have good matchups.  The tide not having Metchie changes the deep passing threat that ate Georgia alive in the SECCG.  I’m still going for the Tide.  It’s not smart money betting against Saban.

    I’m assuming Tucker has tried it personally and hasn’t tested positive.  Someone should warn him about the “erection lasting more than 4 hours” warning they used to give on the commercials. Nah, he probably likes that.

  8. yeah, Faux won’t kick the tucker off or suspend like CNN did toobin. they’ll just hype it as maga macho

  9. Pogo…  hope the tide have better luck tonight than the Patriots did yesterday…  we’ll be watching.
     
    Tucker Carlson….   ROTFLMAO!!!

    The reaction to that bit of Texas Republican crap is what makes me worry about this nation.
    All the left can do is whine.
    The obvious response that would get it pulled down is to point out that it is obvious that Republicans in Texas don’t care if you stand in long lines for voting or at the emergency room. They just don’t give a fuck about the common everyday person.

  11. OK
     as long as I’m sane and rational (and yeah I know some people wonder) I’m not moving again in this lifetime. I’m loading the shotgun you can’t get me out of here alive. Jeez what a mess around here. Trying to fit my old life into my new life is a real adventure.
    But I’ve got internet now so, life is good.

    Jack
    looking for a rotary dial smart phone.

  12. RR, yeah, I ws disappointed in the outcome of the Mac-Tua faceoff yesterday.  Tucker’s one of those annoying pricks whose smugness and self-assurance that he is always right when he seldom is just pisses me off to no end.  Mrs. P clicked onto Faux last week for a few minutes during Tucker’s show – to see what the RW idiots were spewing about the Georgia verdict (crickets) – and couldn’t even watch that crap for more than a couple of minutes.

  13. Jack, That’s what I said the last time I moved – but I actually have rethought it because I don’t want to spend the rest of my life in east Bumfuck.  Frankly, I’m thinking a fire would be better than moving all our shit.

  14. Pogo
    yeah there is something to be said about creative destruction.
    Reminds me of what I used to say about the old neighborhood when I was frustrated. “Yah know except for the people in the way, a tornado could do a lot of good around here”

  15. I’m ready to move. I don’t love the idea of starting a new job after all of these years, though.  Then again, I don’t love what I do.

  16. I used to have a whole lot of stuff.   Then a fire burned the dry storage old mobile home.   Lots less stuff afterward.   Then someone stole the 30 foot camper.   Much less stuff again.    You get kind of used to it. 
    When moving time arrives again, you wonder about how great fire is, and wonder about going forth like Richard Pryor at the end of that movie…..I think it was “Which Way is Up?”

  17. not sure but i think im hearin
    that tuc-tuc is also saying drink urine
    that if it’s free from covid you would be
    you might want to think about a pitcher of pee
