Sad Dumb Eloi

H.G. Wells' protagonist in "The Time Machine" bemoaned the Eloi, the pretty but completely neutered remnant of mankind he encountered and tried to help.

But being enthralled with Malthus, Wells was happy because at least in their state they were governable. Those who do not know of this only have to seek out his paean "The Open Conspiracy."

Well, today, low and behold, he was right. Here is a Breitbart headline that assuredly will calm all previously nervous Fox viewers.

"After Phone Call with Rubio, O'Reilly Offers Full-Scale Support of Immigration Bill"

Is Bill O'Reilly really an Eloi? Sorry, Hanlon's razor is too dull. Buy Heinlein. O'Reilly is governable by other means:
Nice show ya have there Bill.
Would be a shame were something to happen to it.


  1. I watch O'Reilly to see Laura Ingraham and get a conservative point of view.
    I doubt O'Reilly is a dumb schmuck, but he plays one on tv.

  2. Smuch healthier to play dumb than open his mouth and be made so.
