I’ve been reading about this (and reading and reading and reading) and getting more and more annoyed just how shallow and stupid people in the media are – especially who are supposedly on “my side”. The InfamousTeddyK site on Twitter (@KaczTed) has all the details. But I want to repeat this one tweet that takes on that oh-serious political commentator, SE Cupp, who tweeted:
Hey guys. Seeing all the additional videos now, and I 100% regret reacting too quickly to the Covington story. I wish I’d had the fuller picture before weighing in, and I’m truly sorry.
To which someone responded:
Sorry you got caught.
Sorry it wasn’t true.
Like Kathy Griffin et al, in 48 hours they’ll be right back at it. Nothing lost, nothing learned.
What was that quote about the Bourbons? Ah, yes, “They had learned nothing and forgotten nothing.”
It is a quote by Tallyrand about the Bourbons (the rulers of France) of how they learned nothing from the events leading up to, during, and after the French Revolution and Napoleonic Empire, but forgot nothing when they returned to power and immediately put their old cronies back in charge and did all in their power to humiliate and impoverish those that turned them out.
