So I was reading that New Yorker piece I linked to (as did Paddy) over the past week about Joel Surnow, right-wing producer of the TV show 24 and creator of the hysterically unfunny Fox attempt at The Daily Show.
Towards the end of the piece, I came upon this obviously genius statement from right-wing pundette/Coulter wannabe Laura Ingraham:
“They love Jack Bauer,” she noted on Fox News. “In my mind, that’s as close to a national referendum that it’s O.K. to use tough tactics against high-level Al Qaeda operatives as we’re going to get.”Now that is one smart lady. What people enjoy in entertainment obviously is what they want in government policy. So let's see, Will & Grace was a hit, as was The West Wing, and I think the Debbie Does Dallas movies did pretty well.
Laura Ingraham. Another example of why keeping birth control legal is essential.
