Cynical Proverbs 4:30

"The masters tools will never dismantle the masters house"

Quick project everyone.Take "The masters" bulldozer turn it on, and see if it doesn't crash right through "The masters" oh-so impenetrable wall.

Cynical Proverbs 4:09

"A house divided against itself can not stand"
I thought a "house divided" was a duplex? Also since this quote was said in a political sense, I'd say we can't build a slipshod, poorly-constructed extension to the house because it'd just collapse. It's why we all love on different houses after all.

Da Mic Drop: Ted Koppel

New segment here, where we look at people who make such a pointed "standing-ovation-worthy" commentary in regards to a person or issue that it has to be highlighted. We already got a unofficial prequel of this segment with the always delightful Craig Ferguson. But now the first "official" recipient of this "honor" is veteran journalist Ted Koppel as he schools Bill O'Reilly about how that journalmalism  stuff is suppose to work. Plus, the esteemed news-person takes the whole media class to task for prolonging the reality show ("So You Think You Can Hate") that Donald Trump is calling a "political campaign" for ratings instead of actually informing the public of actual news ("Gee we don't know how that odious Trump fellow could get such notoriety and attention. Let's devote 500 redundant articles and 23 of the 24 hour news cycle to figuring out this phenomenon! I mean sure there's that whole 'rest of the world' going on around us, but hey, Trump's empty podium wasn't going to film itself you know!")

There's even video! I mean it's probably not as thrilling as a Hulk Hogan sex tape (yes that's a thing) but the climax her is sure to be more satisfying.

And for those who want the thousand words instead of the picture:

“I’ve interviewed him a number of times,” O’Reilly said of the Republican front-runner. “Not an easy interview. How would you do it?”
“You and I have talked about this general subject many times over the years. It’s irrelevant how I would do it,” Koppel replied. “You know who made it irrelevant? You did. You have changed the television landscape over the past 20 years — you took it from being objective and dull to subjective and entertaining. And in this current climate, it doesn’t matter what the interviewer asks him; Mr. Trump is gonna say whatever he wants to say, as outrageous as it may be.”
