That damned market

What's Mallard raving abut today?

The Media, the Market.

I didn't know my TV is more likely to report market plunges than market records. But, a cartoon duck assured me it is true, and cartoons are never wrong.

Ho-hum. A frequently-displayed fragment of Tinsley's fractured psyche is the fantasy that the Evil Liberal Media suppresses news that makes Conservatives (meaning: neocons) look good, and promotes news that makes them look bad. That is to say, this is no different than his "buried on page B-34" crap from the other day.

This fragment's closest competition is the Endangered Persecuted Christian Under Constant Attack fantasy. But they're all related to Tinsley's core value: Everyone's Out To Get Me, Eeeeeeee, Pee Pee Pants.

No wonder he drinks. No wonder he puts up that fearless smirking-smartass front (AKA the Behold, I Dare Speak Truth To Power fantasy). He lives in constant fear.

I don't even want to imagine what that's like.

Isn't it a double standard for taking Americans to task for not fearing for their safety enough by voting in guys who are tough on terror but then berating the media for playing into financial fears?

The average American naturally assumes that living in a rich country automatically equates a good market anyways. The average american also cares more when financial worth is threatened than if it stands to gain. When they want to gain, they play the lottery.

So I guess he's going to copy and paste the duck for the rest of the week.

I didn't think anything about the Dow shitting the bed yesterday would make me in any way happy.

I forgot about Tinshley's exquisite sense of timing, however. Well done, Brucie.

Evidently, Tinsley has no idea what "double-standard" means.
