THE NARRATIVE AND POLITICAL CORRECTNESS


Threats to freedom of speech, writing and action, though often trivial in isolation, are cumulative in their effect and, unless checked, lead to a general disrespect for the rights of the citizen. -George Orwell

'The View' Ratings Plummeting with Palin-Basher, 9/11 Truther as Hosts
It turns out Americans do not like watching a disloyal and backstabbing Sarah Palin hater who is mousy and boring, a 9/11 truther, and a raging liberal who blamed Rudy Giuliani's "incompetence" for the death of New York firefighters after 9/11.
The show's ratings have plunged 30% from where it was five years ago and has seen a steady decline since the show's season debut.
This year, The View revamped its program by hiring Nicolle Wallace (a yawn-inducing one-trick pony who only got her position after gleefully trashing conservatives on MSNBC and in the mainstream press), Rosie O'Donnell (a 9/11 truther who has made racist remarks on air), and Rosie Perez (who thought Giuliani was "incompetent" during the 9/11 tragedy).
As The Hollywood Reporter recently noted, the show has seen its "post-premiere-week viewership drop below last year, back when the need for a Barbara Walters-free makeover became apparent." The program's "showing in the key demo is pacing downward for the fourth straight season and is 30 percent south of where it was five years ago. It doesn't help that The View's advantage over CBS' The Talk now is negligible. Recent weeks have seen the two shows evenly matched in the two key female demos."

THREE MARTINI LUNCH: OCTOBER 23, 2014

National Review's Jim Geraghty joins Greg Corombos to discuss the day's events. Today's topics: Obama struggles in his transition from mega-popular political celebrity to persona non grata in the midterms, the terror attacks in Canada, and White House lies about illegal immigrant releases.



Obama's Gift to Republicans
One of the more amusing things to observe as we get closer to the midterm elections is the great push-and-pull that's going on between Democratic candidates and the president.
A nearly endless number of Democrats are distancing themselves from Mr. Obama, including those who have voted with him 99 percent of the time. Perhaps the most comical performance so far was by Alison Lundergan Grimes, the Democrat in Kentucky who's challenging Mitch McConnell. Ms. Grimes has repeatedly refused to say whether she voted for Mr. Obama in 2008 and 2012, including invoking a high constitutional principle to keep her sacred little secret.
It's now gotten to the point where even the chairwoman of the DNC, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, distanced herself from the president of her own party. And here's what really wonderful about this: Mr. Obama won't let Democrats run from him. He's like their hound of heaven.
Earlier this month, in a speech to Northwestern University, the president said, "I am not on the ballot this fall. Michelle's pretty happy about that. But make no mistake: These policies are on the ballot. Every single one of them." And just in case that message was lost on folks, earlier this week, in an interview on Al Sharpton's radio show, Mr. Obama said this:
some of the candidates there, you know, it is difficult for them to have me in the state because the Republicans will use that to try to fan Republican turnout. The bottom line is, though, these are all folks who vote with me — they have supported my agenda in Congress.
And this:
This isn't about my feelings being hurt. These are folks who are strong allies and supporters of me. And I tell them, I said, you know what, you do what you need to win. I will be responsible for making sure that our voters turn up.
Now in this case, the president is absolutely right; every one of the Democratic incumbents on the ballot this November is a stalwart supporter of the Obama agenda. But they're frantically trying to pretend they’re not; and the president, in denying them this fiction, is complicating their lives immeasurably.
Surely Mr. Obama knows all this. But the man senior aides referred to as the "black Jesus" during the 2008 campaign - a person who sees himself as a world-historical figure, healer of the planet, the symbol of the possibility of America returning to our best traditions, and all the rest - isn't going to go gently into the good night. No siree. His vanity won't allow it.
As a result, Mr. Obama is, for Republicans, the gift that keeps on giving. And giving. And giving.

THREE MARTINI LUNCH: OCTOBER 22, 2014

National Review's Jim Geraghty joins Greg Corombos to discuss the day's news. On today's podcast: a New Hampshire debate audience laughs at Jeanne Shaheen for refusing to say she supports Obama, ISIS intercepts U.S. weapons headed to the Kurds, Tom Coburn unveils his latest report on government waste, and Jim and Greg look back on four years of Three Martini Lunches.



Your Tax Dollars at Work: Mountain Lions on Treadmills
The report included numerous examples of waste at the National Science Foundation (NSF), including a $331,000 study that found spouses stab voodoo dolls more often when they're "hangry" - that is, hungry and angry at the same time.
"Over the course of twenty-one consecutive evenings, 107 couples were given a chance to stick up to 51 pins into a voodoo doll representing their spouse," the report explained of the government-funded study.
The results: "Hungry people are cranky and aggressive," the lead researcher said.
The NSF also financed synchronized swimming for sea monkeys at a cost of $50,000; a $41,000 study for how Penn State can boost morale after the Jerry Sandusky scandal; and a $171,361 project that studied the gambling habits of monkeys.
The government is also still interested in the theater, doling out grants through the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) to support a play about Bruce Lee ($70,000), and a "marijuana themed musical" in Colorado ($15,000).
The NEA also awarded $10,000 to produce a musical about a young zombie searching for true love, and another $10,000 for a play about two lesbians who think they are Elvis Presley and Theodore Roosevelt.
"The National Science Foundation (NSF) taught monkeys how to play video games and gamble," Coburn wrote. "USDA got into the business of butterfly farming. The Department of Interior even paid people to watch grass to see how quickly it grows. The State Department spent money to dispel the perception abroad that Americans are fat and rude."
"But the real shock and awe may have been the $1 billion price tag the Pentagon paid to destroy $16 billion worth of ammunition, enough to pay a full years' salary for over 54,000 Army privates," he said.
After already putting monkeys, rats, cows, and goats on treadmills for past research, the NSF decided to test mountain lions skills at a cost of $856,000.
After eight months of training the mountain lions were able to walk on treadmills, though the research concluded that they "do not have the aerobic capacity for sustained high-energy activity."
Waste was also found in the National Institutes of Health (NIH) budget, including $1,552,145 to create a video game that teaches parents how to feed their kids vegetables. Another $371,026 project investigates if mothers have a different emotional reaction to pictures of their dogs over pictures of their children by monitoring their brains...
