Introducing the Bulls#%t Mountain tag
Inspired by John Stewart’s debate with Bill O’Reilly I’m introducing a new tag on my blog: bsmtn.
As the L.A. Times reported during Rumble 2012
The “Daily Show” host centered his remarks around the idea that many on the right live in an “alternate reality,” of which O’Reilly is allegedly the mayor. It’s a place, Stewart declared, where “problems are amplified, solutions simplified.” The name Stewart gave O’Reilly’s domicile was somewhat more spicy, but you get the drift.
The name Stewart gave O’Reilly’s domicile was “bullshit mountain” and starting today I’ll be using that tag to identify posts that bring poorly reasoned and overly simplified political positions back into the real world.
