I haven't watched the news for years. The only reason I've started watching the Sunday morning political programs is to be entertained watching them froth about Trump. Which is going to continue for years, so I have tons of fun coming.
The MSM still hasn't learned why no one takes them seriously. They never will.
Recently I saw the elitist leftist moron Van Jones interviewed. He's the "Harvard-educated" fool who says Trump's election was a "whitelash."
He doesn't mean a white backlash, not really. He means a backlash from Flyover Land.
I have dealt extensively with these fools, for decades.
Flyover Land is anything that isn't Harvard, Yale, Wall Street, New York or DC. On the West coast it's anything that isn't Silicon Valley or parts of LA.
Everything else is Flyover Land and is populated by inbred Morlocks who are crypto-Nazis, Klan sympathizers, religious fanatics, and wife-beaters. Every thought in their pointy heads comes from Rush Limbaugh, and if they had any brains all they'd be leftists like Van Jones.
I first heard about Flyover Land when I was about 21, in a journalism class. The class was forced to read some articles by the demented Norman Mailer, in which he wrote disdainfully of Midwesterners (of which I am one).
I asked my instructor what the hell Mailer was talking about since I had never met anyone who fit Mailer's description and he explained "Flyover Land" to me.
Since then I have noticed it in novels and even movies.
I have mentioned The Plot Against America by the mentally-ill Phillip Roth (who has been in and out of mental institutions), in which Flyover Land starts one millimeter west of the Hudson River and is populated by Nazis who lynch Jews outside potato fields. In Kentucky, if I remember correctly.
One of my favorite movies is Spaced Invaders, which is set in the non-existent small town of Big Bean, Illinois. The villain speaks in this weird half-Southern, half-Texan accent, wears a cowboy hat (and boots), a string tie, drives a junk pick-up truck, abuses his girlfriend, and is a thief who tries to steal people's land. In other words, people like him don't exist in Illinois (which is where I am from).
The only person I ever saw wear a cowboy hat in Illinois was some clown Jew from Skokie when I was 21.
The nerd who saves the abused woman goes from zero to hero courtesy of a Martian brain zapper clamped on his head. Otherwise he'd have spent his life working at a gas station.
I know a woman who considers herself "Hispanic" and who truly thinks if she visited Tennessee or Kentucky the Klan would lynch her. Yet she has friends in West Virginia, which is Appalachia, which is supposedly the worst of Flyover Land (which means people live in tarpaper shacks and the men rape their dogs) and when I mentioned where she was visiting she didn't know what I was talking about. Because her friends are wonderful people!
I tell people Washington DC is Hollywood for ugly people, and if I had my way the national capital would be moved to Branson, Missouri.
Then at least the United States would be governed with some common sense.
