"Hell, we're NOT a democracy. Get over it!" . . . Please come CAPTION Fox's Pete Hegseth!!!

Pete Hegseth is saying: "America's a republic, not a democracy, so all of this consternation about votes and election deniers is beside the point. Voting is like a opioid; it makes Democrats feel good as they go about stealing the country. But we're really a republic which means right thinking Republicans can simply take it back when they want. . . . And that time is now!"


Above CAPTION satirizes Hegseth's diatribe against democracy this morning. I heard Tucker do the same several weeks ago. Is there a pattern? You bet. They are minimizing the import of the vote because they know Republicans will have to cast aside and steal elections in the future.

"As Attorney General of Texas, let me ask you this. . ." Please come CAPTION Ken Paxton!!!

Ken ("Anyway, life is short" ) Paxton is saying: "Do you think those children at Ulvade were thinking about racial prejudice or their First Amendment rights? Maybe they were thinking about income inequality? Or prescription drug prices. . . Yeah, right! . . I know you know better than that. . . . They were thinking about how great it was to grow up in the greatest country that every existed where every person was free to own as many guns as they want. . . . They were thinking like Americans! . . . Besides, it's all God's plan."


Above CAPTION is satire based on Paxton's most recent callousness as covered in Crooks and Liars:

"It was all just a Democrat hit job!" . . . Please come CAPTION Fox & Friends!!!

Pete Hegseth just finished saying: "Meanwhile, the so-called Jan. 6th Committee held a prime-time hearing last night to distract from inflation, immigration and crime. . . . And guess what, we've heard it all before!"

Ainsley Earhardt just finished saying: "And did you guys notice how one-sided it all was? Disgusting!"

Brian Kilmeade is saying: "Yeah, who is speaking up for the insurrectionists?"


Caution: CAPTIONing at DU is creative, but this is not far from what was actually said this morning!

About skip fox

I am retired, now a professor emeritus at University of Louisiana at Lafayette, where I taught in the English department for 37 years. I've written 4 chapbooks and 5 full-sized books (all listed as poetry though many include other genres as well), including _Sheer Indefinite: Selected Poems, 1991-2012 (Univ. of New Orleans Press, 2012). I've also written a 500+ page bibliography of three contemporary poets: Robert Creeley, Ed Dorn, and Robert Duncan. I am writing now, both fiction and poetry, more now than ever. My first vote for President of the United States was for Dick Gregory in 1968 (Bowling Green, Ohio). Favorite quote: "It's easy to be an idealist if you don't have to mind the evidence, but no one said it was supposed to be easy" (Richard LaPauvre).
