I know, you’re all like, Tucker who? I had to look up his Wikipedia page just to remind myself of his resume.
Anyway, the Illinois Humanities Counsel, as part of an annual fundraiser, auctioned off a dinner with Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn. The couple will cook dinner and offer conversation to the winner, who happens to be….Tucker Carlson. If you’re not a wingnut who is obsessed with President Obama’s birth certificate, or radical Islamism, or whatever other tinfoil hat conspiracy, you can be forgiven for not remembering Ayers and Dohrn.
The whole story cracks me up. Carlson, a “conservative” who fancies himself as an intellectual (as well as otherwise fancying himself), attempting to ooze his way out of obscurity by chasing down another obscure wingnut fantasy. The man has all the intellectual capacity of a brain damaged marmot.
However, Carlson will always have a place in my heart for the Crossfire interview with Jon Stewart, in which Stewart’s responses to Carlson’s lame and inept attacks led to the canceling of the show. Awesome.
The clip is long, but sooooo worth watching, and still very relevant. If you don’t have time to watch, read the transcript here.
