Political Pundits Use up too much oxygen?
An alternative headline is Life is too short to dance with ugly women
Saw an article in my local Denver post. I think the most humorous item to me is how audience grabbers like these people always beat up on the government but then their usual aim is to get elected in some capacity. Nice Work If You Can Get It by Grusin sounds good right now. Meanwhile while sporting their conservative label out front for everybody to see (like a mask), they decry masks. It’s a lesson in absurdity but then that’s how it seems to work more and more these days.
At least all of those participants like to think so…
Here the so-called conservative is more akin to a radical anarchist. Substituting government for “respected medical authorities” is fine with them. Heck, let’s go to Vegas and we can place our bets. Wait, we don’t have to travel. Sports betting on our phones has exploded and is now larger than the lottery (I would wager).
Anyway here is a different point of view for the Kafer column
I liked her opener “Let’s look at the facts” but then she quoted a “review” by another journalist referencing no medical studies. I checked with Mayo Clinic and Cleveland Clinic and the facts according to them are much different than audience-vested writers looking to cater to an audience. Or potentially get themselves enough visibility to get elected. Vested target journalists writing articles in conservative sounding magazines is no different than oil lobbyists forming nice sounding “independent” groups to proselytize their way.
For “conservatives” who use the word “government” as their whipping dog, then, why do they try/angle so hard to be a part of it (e.g. Littleton city council failed run)?
If we are going to use the acronym RINO, then by all means these “gamblers” like Kafer should be termed CINO (Conservative in name only). To what extent have people like this only serve to extend the public health crisis?
My suggestion is that if one of your columnists wants to write about a medical condition, then make it mandatory that at least 3 actual genuine medical authorities are referenced. Hop skipping where they quote another writer in another opinion column who doesn’t quote any actual medical references does not satisfy that condition.
