As the expression goes: Readership capture.
(Via Paul Constant, who adds: “I’m pretty sure the crowd applauded more tax breaks for billionaires by accident.”)
Also entertaining, Mr. Pierce channeling Willard Romney:
… God, you people are saps. You didn’t see this coming? I pandered and I pandered, and then, every night, I went back to my hotel room, stuck my fingers down my throat, and then had a good laugh. You think that whole “Etch-a-Sketch” thing was a staff blunder? Honkies, please. Could I have signaled more clearly that your audience with me was over? Smedley? Show these lovely people waving their Bibles and their rubber fetuses the door, will you? Lovely to have met you. Really. We must do this again some time. Say, if we’re all really lucky, and I’ve always been luckier than you poor deluded hayshakers, maybe the summer of 2015? It’s a date. We have a lovely parting gift for you.
Not entertaining, unless you are Madame DeFarge: Sean Hannity.
So… what’s on the agenda for another Hump Day?
