Piers Morgan’s recent ouster at CNN should not have come as much of a surprise to anyone who ever watched his show. The effete and pompous Brit habitually used his soapbox to champion both unpopular and preposterous ideas – mainly, curbing Americans’ civil rights. Both the tenor and brashness of Piers’ rhetoric cost him in the eyes of viewers, and toward the end of the run of the show, ratings continued to slide. Even though the dismal ratings were what finally cost him his show, there were a few reasons the show evolved into the final mess that it did.

The media and the government both showed themselves as highly amateurish at times, but perhaps most instructive, the resilience and ability of Americans to stand together in dire times was also shown. We saw both the best, and at times, the worst of humanity.

For the entirety of his two terms in office, belittling and lampooning by the media and left in general, was the typical reaction of progressives to George W. Bush. He was a buffoon, a cowboy, and an idiot, they would have us believe. Bush was a maverick, willing to start wars and carry out the missions from previous administrations (invading Iraq was to finish his father’s war, many on the left claimed).
It seemed like Bush’s mere existence was enough to make some progressives apoplectic, or send them into an angry, profanity-laden, rant.
