Tonight, there will be another installment of the Roseanne show. I will not be watching. I never watched the original show, and this is just more of the same. Much has been said, printed and spread all over the media about the current incarnation. That somehow it is a conservative voice in the progressive wilderness. It is not.
Roseanne is a parody of conservatives. Henry David Thoreau, one said “the bulk of men live lives of quiet desperation” the Rosanne show sets out to show this as progressive truth. The writers, producers, and performers would have you believe that this is how middle America lives; paycheck-top-paycheck in dysfunctional families made up of the most dislikeable people on planet earth who voted Trump into office. I suspect many of the scripts could be written by HRC or her BFF Huma.
Hollywood has made billions off of the situation comedy depicting the American family, fathers especially, as gross, dysfunctional and incapable of tying their shoes. Of course, these are the same men and women who defeated Nazis, and the Soviet Union. Who in their ignorance turned a continent into the greatest moral, ethical, and industrial power the world has ever seen. They didn’t do it whining about how unfair the world is but set out to make it more righteous.
So, tonight when that cackling laugh is filling the airwaves. I think I will be playing a video game.
