Shortest Ethics Alarm Post Of The Year: A Popeye

The Washington Post, not for the first time, just referred to Jimmy Kimmel as “America’s conscience,” a title first conferred by, of course, CNN.

Any nation that seriously regards  the slimy likes of Jimmy Kimmel as its conscience should just commit mass suicide like Jonestown, because it’s a menace to civilization.

  1. Paddy Chayefsky continues to be prescient after 43 years.

  2. Why would CNN call him, and not Billy Graham, America’s conscience?

    I have been engaging in these kind of discussions for over twenty years, much longer than Jimmy Kimmel has. I am more qualified to be America’s conscience than he is.

      I’m going to pretend that’s not a rhetorical question for a second, and say “because religion ain’t cool, unless it’s Islam”.

    More like part of America’s digestive tract than a function of its brain.

    I don’t usually quote the Bible but, “Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.” Matthew 15:14.

    Kimmel is “America’s Conscience?”

    Hah; that’s almost as ludicrous as Barack Obama being the 1st Post-Racial POTUS and Saudi Arabia deserving to be on the UN Women’s Rights Commission.

    Wait…what??
