    Though, to be fair, it also explains people on the extreme left as well.

    IMO, the best thing to do is to create an omnibus post containing all of his most-used phrases and throw them back at him. Again and again and again, until he finds another hobbies.

    I eagerly await his response. "I ride the bus when my car won't start, but that doesn't make me an omnibus!"

    IOW: People who can't handle complex thinking prefer simplistic answers.

    Did they have to do a lot of research to come up with this astounding information?

    Interesting piece though! Now let's fund out why Tucker is such a worthless, clueless, imbecilic loser. :chris:

    And of course virtually everyone shows cognitive decline as they get older.

    So you are more likely to be a whackjob one way or the other as you age.

    This explains Fox News, with their median viewer age of 70.5.

    I am going to totally agree with @Asyncritus here. Advertisers have known this for years and republicans and democrats have used tactics based on this to make advertisements targetted at the most easily manipulated people. I think the turnout on last election shows fear works to get the sheeple to vote. In a democratic system you really want to motivate the easiest block you can and the republicans have refined a huge block of sheeple.

    This is why I do not believe democracy should be the way things are done. I do believe in an elected elite representative However, we do not have standards to meet the requirements of elite.

    At this point we need an omnibus thread about all of the omnibus threads.

    If you're going to call someone an "imbecilic loser" it helps if you're more articulate than the other person. Can't even say this is a case of the pot calling the kettle black, because you lack the level of self-awareness found in a pot.
