Thank you, Dennis Miller! ! !

After writing a column lamenting the demise of hypocrisy, this columnist was forced to realize that it’s not dead after all. A morning monitoring, recently, of the Dennis Miller radio program produced a Phoenix moment. Hopes to be able to continue a connoisseur’s appreciation of sanctimonious Republican drivel sprang back to life almost immediately.

The column was a hasty misjudgment. Miller’s attempt, on Tuesday, Jan. 27, 2009, to goad journalists into mauling every aspect of the Obama program was so encouraging and reassuring for someone who now realizes that Dracula will die before Republican hypocrisy is laid to rest.

Anything but complete obeisance to the Bush press policy that stenography is excellent journalism and that any antagonistic questions from the press is tantamount to treason are applicable only during a Republican President’s term in office.

When a Democrat takes office, it’s time to take the gloves off. The Republican radio personalities will never say anything disparaging about a Republican and never concede that a Democrat has done anything that is not reprehensible and despicable, but the “pro liberal”media must, for the rest of Obama’s term in office, become completely antagonistic and skeptical to prove that they are fair and balanced.

Any derogatory comments made by the “pro liberal” press about a Democratic President will be as welcome as a cash contribution to the Republican National Committee. Any positive assessments of a Democratic President will be challenged and discredited by Republican lackeys in the radio game and be denounced as an example of prejudicial propaganda masquerading as “journalism.”

Miller punctuates his comments with guffawing but doesn’t indicate if he is chuckling with his listeners about how quickly the news media have forgotten that Bush had them fully trained to ignore his deficiencies, or if he is laughing at his listeners about how stupid they are to believe his two-faced standards.

Miller’s Tuesday program was soothing reassurance that a four year long supply of hypocrisy raised to the third power will be available for those who have become addicted to it.

El-Rushbo has indicated that he will wallow in disloyalty to the new Commander-in-chief, so don’t tune in to him to hear a daily dose of hypocrisy in action.

As viewers of the film “Gone With the Wind” know, tomorrow is another day and perhaps a listen to Sean Hannity will provide a new and powerful hit for a hypocrisy junkie! ! !

Andre Gide has said: “The true hypocrite is the one who ceases to perceive his deception, the one who lies with sincerity.”

Now, the disk jockey will play a recording (from 1943?) of Fats Waller’s “You’re a Viper” (just for you Dennis) and we’ll be out of here faster than a Dendroaspis polylepis can slither. Have a “have a nice day” type of week.


  1. This conservative will hold off forming an opinion about O until he sees what O does. Who knows? He may turn out to be a damn good president.

  2. Dennis Miller has turned into a satire of himself, and the worst kind — he apparently knows what he’s doing but can’t change now without seeming like a ‘double hypocrite.’ (Leftie agitator to rightie Bush-lover.)

    He’s lost all of his former fans, hasn’t gained many new ones on the right, and he’s gradually fading into the wallpaper as conservatism becomes more and more unpopular.

    Like Rush, I think he’ll end up at some small daytimer radio station somewhere; a miserable, forgotten little man who tossed the dice and lost, and no doubt stays drunk most of the time and bores his colleagues with long-winded, inapt metaphor charged stories of the ‘good ol’ days’ when he was ‘big, big I tells ya!’ Then one fine day the station owner finds out Dennis is diddling his wife, fires him, and he’s in line for welfare benefits, fortunately for DM available even to broken right-wing wise asses under President Obama.
