Rick Sanchez Signs Up for Rally to Restore Insanity

Now here it is, Rick’s Moment of Zen, with Pete Dominick, satellite-radio host:

Dominick: How is [Jon Stewart] a bigot?

Sanchez: I think he looks at the world through, his mom, who was a school teacher, and his dad, who was a physicist or something like that. Great, I’m so happy that he grew up in a suburban middle class New Jersey home with everything you could ever imagine.

Dominick: What group is he bigoted towards?

Sanchez: Everybody else who’s not like him. Look at his show, I mean, what does he surround himself with?

Well, there’s Wyatt, and Aasif, and Sam, and Larry, and Kristen, and— yes, Rick, you have more?

I’m telling you that everybody who runs CNN is a lot like Stewart, and a lot of people who run all the other networks are a lot like Stewart, and to imply that somehow they, the people in this country who are Jewish, are an oppressed minority? Yeah…

I can’t see somebody not getting a job somewhere because they’re Jewish.

And there you have it: Rick Sanchez Tases Himself. Film at Eleven.

. . . thereby paving the way for Ines Sainz to present the Hispanic perspective on the news for CNN, probably with more substance.

@redmanlaw: From the second link, which has more detail:

If I did just sit there and read the teleprompter every day, Jon Stewart would never say a word about me. He’d say I’m a good Hispanic anchor, “Way to go, you’ve done a good job, stay right there.” … I am a complex human being, I’m not some moron to be…

The first sentence is correct: Rick would be better off if he just read the teleprompter, and not the tweets.

@mellbell: I almost mentioned Olivia, but I’m not sure she’s a regular yet, although she did show up the other day.

@nojo: Yeah, she seems legit now (though I have to say, that tag-team with Oliver was not one of her better moments thus far).

Now who is this person again? I’m so bad with the pop-culture references.

I would say that Tasers might affect brain function, but that is based on the idea that Sanchez has one that works.

@Dodgerblue: / . . . , he said stroking a white long haired cat that stood out against his soft gray Nehru jacket.

@Dodgerblue and redmanlaw: Can.Not.Wait.Until.Monday’s.Daily.Show.

@SanFranLefty: Even more quickly than I expected. Impressive.

@SanFranLefty: I do like these One-Day Memes. Easier to follow that way.

@SanFranLefty: Let’s face it, Sanchez is the last thing that kept CNN informativeentertaining.

I wish Jews did run everything. More holidays, and longer. Plus, Chinese Food on Christmas Day is a lot less work than what Methodists do.

@SanFranLefty: Sounds like somebody had the paperwork ready a while ago and was just waiting for Ricky to have some ‘splainin to do.

So the takeway is, do not cross Jon Stewart. Or Stephen Colbert. Or they will hunt you down like a bitch.

I don’t know this Rick Sanchez person, don’t watch him or his “CNN”, but I’m all for anti-anti-Semitism. And anti-racism of any kind in general.

But Judaism does not equal Zionism. Israel is fucking evil as a nation-state. Not any more than US America is, but let’s just be honest. War crimes, torture, aggressive war, genocide, etc. are not policies that would, in a sane world, ingratiate any state with a hypothetical peaceful community of nations.

I believe the founding of the modern nation of Israel was a terrible miscalculation by the colonial Empires of the time, (prompted not least by Zionist terrorism) but now that we’re stuck with it, all the parties need to sit back, smoke a bowl, and contemplate not history but the future.

Shit, did I just say “look forward, not backward”?

Well, I reserve the right to apply that philosophy selectively.

@Pedo: The important thing is that Arnie signed a bill to make less than an ounce of the green stuff be an infraction and not a misdemeanor. Plus he signed a couple other bills that made me happy

@SanFranLefty: I’m just wondering if that’s a political calculation to mitigate his official position against legalization…?

What the fuck is the difference between decriminalization and legalization anyway? I never got that.

20+ years ago when I lived in Alaska, they (the state) had a policy of pot is good. Not sure exactly how that was expressed legally, but everyone smoked the weed and they grew some awesome Matanuska Thunderfuck, and there weren’t any Federal black helicopters circling the skies of Anchorage or the Matanuska Valley (which is much more visible from Wasilla than Russia, by the way).

Anyway, at the time I had the impression that the state had given a big fuck-you to the federal government about weed, and hadn’t suffered any consequences. I don’t know if that was true.

totally agree with you…as a citizen of the 2 most obnoxious countries on earth. how many times do i have to tell them to move the whole damn country to the caribbean? they’re very attached to that Wall….
and the opportunity to turn iran into molten glass.

i am sooo happy about ricky losing my number. i despise him. YAY!

also: if you’re pulled over while smoking a joint and driving on my happy isle? $75. 00 ticket. same as not wearing your seatbelt. that’s decriminalization. legal is when we don’t get a ticket.

@PedonatorUSA: I could be completely wrong here, but I think I heard Thom Hartmann lay it out once that the difference between legalization and decriminalization exists because we are legally bound not to “legalize” any “narcotics” due to some Federal treaty obligations or some-such, but “decriminalization” is a legal hoop-jump to get around this sticky wicket.

I guess it would be similar to what Spain recently did in decriminalizing almost everything (maybe everything?). If you get caught with a doob or a brick of blow, you get some minuscule fine, like a traffic citation, and a chance to go to rehab if you so choose. I think that’s pretty much it. I’ve heard their addiction rates and AIDS infection rates are way down compared to the rest of Europe. I guess something’s working right.

Ought to give the Libertarians a bit of a chub.

Sounds like a plan to me. But getting it past Big Pharma, Big Jeezus and Prisons Inc. is another matter altogether.
