 Judge Andrew Napolitano on Fox News “I prefer to look at Lincoln this way.  At the time that he was the President of the United States, slavery was dying a natural death all over the western world…  Instead of allowing it to die, or helping it to die, or even purchasing the slaves and then freeing them, which would have cost a lot less money than the civil war cost, Lincoln set about on the most murderous war in American history. “

Jon Stewart “Oh right, compensated emancipation.  Why didn’t Lincoln think of that?  Oh, he did think of that.  He spent most of 1862 trying to convince the border states of Delaware, Kentucky, Maryland, Missouri, and West Virginia to free their slaves in exchange for money and everybody said bleep off.  OK, alright, ’cause it wasn’t economically feasible and the slave states had a deeply vested sociopolitical interest  in maintaining a two-tiered culture based on cheap forced labor.  Frankly, I don’t even know why we’re talking about slavery.  I mean, why are we even talking about slavery?  It seems that wasn’t really what the civil war was about.”

Napolitano “Well, it’s not even all together clear if slavery was the reason for secession…But, largely the impetus for secession was tariffs.”

Stewart “Sure, unless he’s talking about a slave named tariff, he’s talking out his ass, ’cause in their own declarations of secession, South Carolina, Georgia, and Mississippi all clearly put slavery as the number one issue for wanting to secede, with Mississippi saying quote our position is thoroughly identified with the institute of slavery, the greatest material interest of the world.  I guess  you can read into that.  Going on to say, although for future whitewashing purposes please replace the word slavery with tariffs.  Alright, for more on the issue we talk to our senior black correspondent Larry Wilmore.  Larry, thanks for joining us.  So, what about this idea that Lincoln should have just waited because slavery would have eventually died of natural causes.”

Wilmore “Uh Jon, the south was so committed to slavery, Lincoln didn’t die of natural causes.”

Bill Maher “It’s still a very volatile there in Ukraine.  President Obama hasn’t really decided exactly what we’re going to do.  Fox news has already decided that whatever it is, it’s wrong.  Sean Hannity said today it’s either gutless and will show the world we’re weak, or it’s reckless and will get us all killed.  I’ll get back to you on Monday.

And, people keep asking me what are they fighting about there in the Ukraine.  Well, it’s complicated, but basically half of the country wants to modernize and become more western in their outlook, and the other half of the country wants to live in the past.  Same problem with our country.”

Megyn Kelly – Fox News: Let me ask you about DOD [Department of Defense]. Because I know your report concludes that DOD officials believed nearly from the onset that this was a terrorist attack and not some sort of a protest gone awry. Now, I want to get specific, because so many people have said, ‘So then why did Susan Rice go out and talk about protests? Why did she mention a video?’ But the CIA talking points, the very first draft that went out and was circulated, that Susan Rice ultimately was provided, that top officials ultimately saw, talked about a protest. They did. The CIA actually came out, I want to look at it here, and said this is a draft from September 14th, 11:15 am, ‘We believe based on currently available information that the attacks in Benghazi were spontaneously inspired by the protests at the embassy in Cairo and evolved into a direct assault.’ So, tell me, does that — does it or does it not answer the question about how our officials started to come out and talk about protests and the video?

Jon Stewart “There you have it. The war on Christmas is over and the war on carbon begins. Global warming, just one more liberal conspiracy, because even though there is a great deal of scientific data establishing climate trends, even though many of the models of global warming predict more extremes of weather, not just warming, apparently decades of peer reviewed scientific study can be, like a ficus plant, destroyed in one cold weekend.”

Pundit Jan 2, 2014 “Looks to me like we’re looking at global cooling. Forget this global warming. That’s just my opinion.”

Stewart “Yea, your bleeping opinion. That’s your opinion. It means nothing. Guys, settle down. It’s your opinion. Based on it’s flavor, I think lead paint is good to drink. That’s my opinion. Peeing into a fountain at the same time as another person is a good way to trade souls with them. That’s my opinion.”

Thursday night on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” Kimmel was making light of Fox anchor Megyn Kelly’s recent remarks that Santa Claus is indubitably and indisputably a white man.

Kimmel said, “Fortunately they had a panel of experts to weigh in on this important subject.”

Panelist Monica Crowley asserted that “you can’t take facts and then try to change them to fit some sort of a political agenda or a sensitively agenda.”

“You can’t?” quipped Kimmel, “I thought that was the Fox News business model.”

Fox News anchor Chris Wallace said Sunday that top Republicans urged him to go after Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), the latest indication that the junior senator from Texas has alienated members of his own party over his strategy to defund Obamacare and risk a government shutdown.

Cruz was a guest on “Fox News Sunday,” which Wallace hosts.

“This has been one of the strangest weeks I’ve ever had in Washington and I say that because as soon as we listed Ted Cruz as our featured guest this week, I got unsolicited research and questions, not from Democrats but from top Republicans, to hammer Cruz,” Wallace told his panel before asking GOP strategist Karl Rove why Republicans were upset with Cruz.

“Well, because this was a strategy laid out by Mike Lee (R-UT) and Ted Cruz without any consultation with their colleagues,” Rove told Wallace.

Jon Stewart “And I get that Fox opposes a Syria peace plan because its motus operandi is to foment dissent in the form of a relentless and irrational contrarianism to Barack Obama and all things Democratic to advance its ultimate objective of creating a deliberately misinformed body politic whose fear, anger, mistrust and discontent is the manna upon which it sustains its parasitic succubus-like existence.”
