Roger Ailes Is No Longer Sane

Toadlike Fox News mastermind Roger Ailes .......ACTUALLY IF YOU CHECK OUT THE PICTURE, HE LOOKS EXACTLY LIKE JABBA THE HUT!!..... has always been thought of as an evil geniuseven his detractors admire his media-savvy PR brilliance. It's not true. In fact, he's an isolated old man whose anger has driven him insane.

We tend to just dismiss most of Roger Ailes' public proclamations as so much rote (albeit viciously rote) Republican propaganda, in the same way we tend to dismiss most of what Robert Gibbs says. Ailes is only notable in that he's ostensibly a media executive rather than an open political operative. Still, it was hard to ignore how Ailes described NPR in an interview out today:

"They are, of course, Nazis. They have a kind of Nazi attitude. They are the left wing of Nazism. These guys don't want any other point of view."

There are plenty of commentators across the political spectrum that we disagree withand many of them we don't even respectbut for most of them we still trust that they are, in their own ways, in full control of their mental faculties. Not so, for Roger Ailes. He has graduated to publicly spouting the most paranoid variety of right-wing lunacy: one in which a media organization that doesn't even rival your own is not only made up of Nazis, but of left wing Nazis, a political classification that we can't even begin to conceptualize. (Free speech in concentration camps?) And while there are certainly right wing commentators out there who practice the same brand of purely imagination-based rhetoricGlenn Beck comes to mindthose commentators are, of course, not in charge of one of America's most influential media outlets. When the talent goes crazy, it's entertaining; but when the boss goes crazy, well, it may be time for him to take a nice long vacation on a secluded island far, far away.

1. If you think this is crazy, then...
you're not the target audience. The giveaway is the "of course" he threw in there.
