Vintage Carlson: Former Democratic National Chairman Terry McAuliffe, left, and then-“Crossfire” pundit Tucker Carlson share a laugh with an unidentified woman at a theatrical premiere in Washington, D.C., in 2003.

Giving the Drudge Report and Free Republic a little competition in the conservative Web space, former CNN pundit (see: “Crossfire”) and bow-tie enthusiast Tucker Carlson has launched his own site, the Daily Caller. That’s “the DC” for short—snappy, Mr. Carlson!

Here’s a little snippet from Carlson’s “Letter From Tucker,” in which he confesses that he and his colleagues “hope you return compulsively.” Hmmm!  —KA

“Letter From Tucker” in the Daily Caller:

Welcome to the Daily Caller.  Editors’ letters have a well-deserved reputation for undue length and self-seriousness, so in 15,000 words or less let me confirm the stereotype.

Just kidding. I’ll be (by my standards) brief. This is primarily a news site. We see our core job as straightforward: Find out what’s happening and tell you about it. We plan to be accurate, both in the facts we assert and in the conclusions we imply. If we’re not, tell us. We’ll fix it immediately.

My second visit to “conservative” Direct Call was my
last. When filling out a registration form it became
apparent from the personal info required that it was
not for me. I fell into a trap at a similar site,
American Thinker, & was censured & dropped after this
submission, which wasn’t posted.

My candidate for scam of all times is the creation of
the FED with the passage of the FEDERAL RESERVE ACT
which enabled the fascist takeover of America with
GOVERNMENT SACHS as a facilitator using perpetual
to bury us in a debtor’s abyss.
Saving your money to pay for future healthcare is
connected with a tentacle of the NEW WORLD ORDER
CONSPIRACY, which further enslaved Americans
by foisting the scam of treating real or imaginary
symptoms of primarily self-inflicted conditions
resulting from
brainwashing induced lifestyes requiring alcohol,
tobacco, caffeine, sleep aids, laxatives, insulin,
bypass surgery, to
name a few, which has enslaved the populace by its
belief that without “health” insurance an early
grave is inevitable.
The tragic irony is that just the opposite is true.
MIPIC is killing over one million people each year
via iatrogenic mistakes.
To satisfy your need to know the facts of this
slaughter, you may want to
Google: “Medical system is leading cause of death and
injury in US”

Start eating moderate amounts of nutritious foods
prepared at home, exercise regularly, get enough
drink clean water & wear comfortable shoes. Health is
acquired & can’t be purchased.

Tuckers morally bankrupt,  let’s hope this quickly financially bankrupts him as well.
