Don’t smoke the Kool-Aid

It’s a Fairly Conservative exclusive – a phrase that I’m told I coined in a conversation with Kyle Prast. It must have been a slip between “I want what they’re smoking” and the phrase I don’t much care for, “They drank the Kool-Aid.”

I’m going to let it stick. You can expect to see it occasionally.


Don’t drink the Kool-Aid, is (now) the title of a book out to take aim at Oprah Winfrey and her new age teachings as well as her association with Barack Obama.

This author isn’t alone.

Chuck Norris is taking aim on Oprah as well.

    I think they’re both showing too much cleavage.

  2. Dang, that’s funny.

  3. Chuck Norris? The guy who campaigned for Huckabee day in and day out, the guy who hawks the Bowflex?

    This is about the stupidest thing I have ever heard.

  4. Kathryn says:

    He does write pretty well.

  5. BrkfldDad says:

    But that’s not where ‘drinking the Kool-Aid’ came from, it’s

  6. Cheri M. says:

    There were rumors, er, predictions for 2008 that Hillary would do what she could to bring down Oprah as payback for not endorsing Hillary. So I must ask, is Hillary, or those big beautiful Clinton bucks, behind any of this?

  7. Kathryn says:

    Oprah’s stuff can be a little weird. I don’t think Hillary had to urge anyone on.

  8. Cheri M. says:

    There you go… THINKING again!

  9. Kathryn says:

    Cheri, it’s a bad habit. Should I opine instead?

  10. Cheri M. says:

    Let’s take turns! I’ve been opining… your turn now! Perhaps I’ll endeavor to think a bit….

  11. BrkfldDad, sorry, your comment was caught in Spam.

    You’re right, that’s where the phrase is from. Someone has chosen it for the title of the book, though.

    Thanks for the link.
