Conservatives Jumping The Shark

January 7, 2020

When one wishes to underline the moment when there is no question of the decline about a person, a movement, or an event it can be summed up with ‘jumping the shark’.  That harkens back to an ABC comedy of my youth, Happy Days, when Fonzie jumps a shark on water skies.   It was a telling moment about what happens when, in that case, a television network did not appreciate that shows need to have a definite shelf-life.

This morning come two glaring examples of conservatives who are not aware they are souring, spoiling, and decaying while in front of the public.

Disgraced television evangelist Jim Bakker said on the air in front of an audience Donald Trump is a test of faith for those of the Christian faith.  As soon as I heard that line the large red mental question mark in my head went off.


“You know what? Trump is a test whether you’re even saved. Only saved people can love Trump.”

Here I was sure only those with a marriage license to their cousin loved Trump.

Even some of Bakker’s audience laughed at his remark, and I think one even threw up a little in his mouth.

Not to be outdone for shocking stupidity yesterday was Rush Limbaugh, who I rarely hear anything about anymore.

Trump, who spends much of his mornings in the White House residence watching his conservative pals on FAUX News placed a call into the Rush Limbaugh Show and briefly discussed the Mueller report:

Trump: Even I was impressed with how clean I am, Rush.

Limbaugh: You may be cleaner than any previous president we can think of. 

Add 300 pounds to Fonzie in the photo below to mimic Rush, or a sanctimonious grin for Bakker and we have the news picture of the morning.
