I guess he doesn't even have Pox Noise anymore. He's an "independent contractor," I suppose. A man without a network, trying to stay famous, and relevant to - well, somebody or other. He was always a B-team player - if even that.

The more crimes, the more ridiculous and offensive behavior, the more he continues to dominate the news! And here I couldn't wait for the 2016 election to be over so we'd never have to see or hear this offensive blowhard again!

Whew. Can’t get enough of folks talking about that lame whackaloon’s humiliation. I was not very successful recently at biting my tongue when the guy cutting our trees started bragging on his neighbor. (Maine’s shame) Oh yeah, Putin’s pal, I said. It didn't make much of a dent at that moment. Maybe the penny will drop at some point.

And the firing of Carlson seems not to have changed him at all. What does it take??

You Go Joan Walsh.

Yes, tucker seeks out the prevailing winds believing they will take him somewhere. Somewhere significant and important. Tucker has never thought that MAKING an honest living was worth his time.
