Dennis Miller, the has-been Saturday Night Live semi-regular from 1000 years ago, is now a right wing fuckwad asshole koolaid drinker who has been reduced, through a series of carrer failures, to the role of an obscure talk radio host on the wretched troglodyte Salem Broadcasting network.
Last night, I was monitoring right-wing radio, enjoying all of the teeth gnashing and feverish spinning in the fallout to the Snott McClellan affair. Miller was weighing in on his view of the Bush/oil company clusterfuck-caused gas disaster. In his shit for brains, turbostupid opinion, we should all just lay off the Administration and pay up happily because gas prices, to him, are really a pretty good deal. After all, he says, “I Filled up the SUV yesterday and it was like $97.00 for a 20 gallon tank of gas. OK, I took the kid to the Lakers game last week and we sat in pretty good seats and paid much more than that for them, so in comparison, my friends, it doesn’t seem so much.”
Ok, First of all, There is no comparison, for the majority of us working slaves, between a tank of gas to get us to and from work in Auto dependent Los Angeles and a purely luxury item like a Lakers ticket. No comparison at all. A lakers ticket is an unobtainable, super high cost item that is accessible only to the uber rich elite, like Miller. A tank of gas is a commodity that most of us require to continue working, thus eating and living. Does he really see a comparison? Is he THAT FUCKING BLIND? History teaches us, by the example of the French Revolution, that he probably does. Marie Antoinette lost her lousy, stupid, entitled rich head for such sentiments.
… And a TWENTY GALLON TANK? -Proves he must drive a fucking Escalade or exploiter or probably a Hummer. Probably lives in a fucking persian palace in Encino, too.
Jesus H on a cracker! It’s tough for me right now, but how much tougher for the poor people working at low wage jobs, who still have to commute miles and miles to work because they can’t possibly afford to live anywhere near where they work because rents are so goddamned high? I know people who live 50 -100 miles from San Francisco because the possibility of living any closer to that uber high rent/own area is simply impossible. How much harder for them now, without any adequate public transportation, is it to simply survive? Can the rich, privileged, repiglican Miller possibly understand that? Would it ever occur to him? No and No.
