The Fairness Doctrine on my dime: PBS and Tavis Smiley

If it comes to a point that Congress wants to bring the fairness doctrine back in, I hope people remind Congress of PBS and it's "small town" ways with Palin.

Tavis Smiley

While it's easy to laugh about Sarah Palin and her small-town moose-eating ways, there's something else there, too.


The clarification about what Russia looks like (albeit from across an ocean) aside, she is quite obviously horrifically under qualified to hold the highest office in the land, and yet…it seems pretty much assured that she'll take another shot at it.


At least she'll be running against an incumbent.

How does that song go about being born in a small-town?

Well I was born in a small town
And I live in a small town
Probly die in a small town
Oh, those small communities

All my friends are so small town
My parents live in the same small town
My job is so small town
Provides little opportunity

Educated in a small town
Taught the fear of jesus in a small town
Used to daydream in that small town
Another boring romantic thats me

But Ive seen it all in a small town
Had myself a ball in a small town
Married an l.a. doll and brought her to this small town
Now shes small town just like me

No I cannot forget where it is that I come from
I cannot forget the people who love me
Yeah, I can be myself here in this small town
And people let me be just what I want to be

Got nothing against a big town
Still hayseed enough to say
Look whos in the big town
But my bed is in a small town
Oh, and thats good enough for me

Well I was born in a small town
And I can breathe in a small town
Gonna die in this small town
And thats probly where theyll bury me

Let's see the idiot take a shot at John Mellencamp about small-towns. It's nice to see my tax dollars going to pay for the "fairness doctrine" at PBS.

I don't know the guy but I am sure I could never like him.

I hope understands the incompetent mess we have in there now.
