Theories for you to Disregard Completely (5.15.12): Why are You People Taking Family Guy Seriously?

Greetings from #altCon East, where a week from right now, I’ll be preparing for The Right Hook’s biggest interview to date! I’m paranoid aboot naming names until have the voices have been saved to the desktop, but check my Twitter page next Tuesday if all goes well.

This is not to say this week’s episode isn’t HUGE. The House GOP named the first fifteen members of their “Young Guns” program and two of them are both from New York and on the show: Randy Altschuler (NY-1) and Matt Doheny (NY-21). We’ll also be revisited by David Bellavia, a young conservative running a congressional primary challenge up in the new NY-27. I get the same vibe from him I get from Maryland Senate candidate Dan Bongino. Tune in this Thursday night, 8:00 PM, on the mighty FTR Radio.

Then on Sunday morning at 10:00 am, Mark and I are back with Whiskey Rebellion Radio with our very special guest star, children’s author Amelia Hamilton! I do believe there is also a good chance we’ll be bringing back one of our favourite segments, “America Hates Kids.”

I don’t normally have the bandwidth for issues like this, but are people really really letting themselves get heated at “The Family Guy?” Apparently they did a show mocking the tea party that I didn’t watch. Now, nevermind the fact that the show stopped being funny a few years ago (except when Stewie and Brian go on their road trips), and nevermind the fact that while Seth MacFarlane is a lib he still manages to be friends with Rush Limbaugh and was friends with Andrew Breitbart, getting upset with “The Family Guy” is like getting upset at “South Park.” They offended you this week; they’ll offend someone else next week. Get over it.

Sidenote: I am in NO WAY comparing the two shows. “Family Guy” has turned unfunny and mean spirited. “South Park” is as brilliant and hysterical as it’s ever been. Matt Stone and Trey Parker can do no wrong.

Seems like a good place for song of the day…

Which I just discovered was a parody of this song…

See? Brilliant!

There was a great interview on with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. I’m still not a fan and would support anyone with a (R-state) after their last name that challenges him for leadership, but he still gets points for reaching out to “da base,” something that Mitt Romney and Reince Priebus also did recently on the Breitbart pages. We’ve been looking for our own Arianna Huffington Post, and I think we may have finally found it. Not to knock Free Beacon and Daily Caller, but Team Breitbart has a bit more edge to them.

The book I’m reading is a biography of Lester Bangs.

The beer I’m drinking is Southern Tier Double Milk Stout.

Nothing ever quite dies, it just comes back in a different form.

I owe it to the people.
