Not Just Coconuts

Some dumb-arses live far from the South Pacific.

This one in particular is a disgrace to his family name. If Adolf remembers rightly, this fellow was a key conspirator in the leaking of sensitive and classified electronic intelligence information to the scurrilous New York Times during the early days of the Iraq war. A traitor, no less.

Now he is calling for the closure of Fox News and MSNBC.

"I'm tired of the right and the left," West Virginia Sen. Jay Rockefeller said Wednesday during a Senate hearing on retransmission consent. "There's a little bug inside of me which wants to get the FCC to say to Fox and to MSNBC, 'Out. Off. End. Goodbye.' "

Why? Apparently he doesn't agree with these channel's respective manner of commentary and reporting. Has someone not informed him about the little button which changes the channel?
But here's the best bit.

Rockefeller didn't seem to realize that the FCC only regulates broadcast airwaves, not cable.

That's what you call a REAL dumb-arse.

He is a politician yet you expect something to put on a pedestal because he has a name that many would associate with money and control but not much in the way of ethics? He is right about the left and right though - I'd be sick of them as well because both suck and have no answers.

The Rockefellers were always the embodiment of the Left-leaning East Coast Republican establishment, so the fellow is merely being consistent with his forebears. At least having a D by his name is more honest.
