May 31, 1995

On May 31, 1995, Kansas Senator and past and future, Presidential Wannabe, Bob Dole singled out and criticized Time Warner for the ‘marketing of evil’ in movies and music. Dole later admitted that he hadn’t seen or heard much of what he’d been criticizing. To fully understand how much he really goofed, think about your Aunt Linda on Facebook. She reads the title to a post and immediately, without reading the full post or the articles attached to the post or going to an actual school and learning about science and math and chemistry, she starts into one of her anti-vax, homeopathic, because God said so rants, and then learns, the post wasn’t what she thought it was about. And she doesn’t apologize or admit she’s wrong, she just disappears for a couple of days. That’s what Bob Dole did. Though he still thought that modern movies and music were bad and unnecessarily sexualized. And he still believed that young woman shouldn’t shake their hinnies on TV. They should do it in a dark and smoke-filled strip-club where God intended it to happen.
