Glenn Garvin Still Lives In Tuckahoe.

It's no secret that Glenn Garvin's entire worldview was shaped by the culture wars of the 60s as filtered through 70s era sitcoms -- wars in which somehow Garvin failed to get sufficiently high or sufficiently laid.

In today's column, Garvin fearmongers over a current fixation of the far right -- Obama's continuing plan to turn America into socialized Europe, this time by way of the VAT.

Forget that taxes have gone down, or that Obama has not ruled anything in or out, the important thing to know is that NIXON AT ONE POINT CONSIDERED IT!

Umm, ok, good way to deal with highly complex national finance policy.

Let's see, Nixon also opened relations with China, signed the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (and the Clean Water Act), created the EPA, called Jews "cheap kikes" and tried to deport John Lennon.

So he was on a roll there until the last two, I think.

Is it the least bit persuasive to talk about what Nixon once thought of doing?

The pros and cons of a VAT, and how it would possibly be structured and implemented, are a discussion for another day -- like when there's a slight possibility it might actually happen.

But why let that get in the way of a good old-fashioned Glenn Garvin fear session?

Remember how Garvin shouted to the rafters about Obama personally bringing back another 70s' era relic, the Fairness Doctrine?

Oh yeah:

President Obama opposes any move to bring back the so-called Fairness Doctrine, a spokesman told Wednesday.

The statement is the first definitive stance the administration has taken since an aide told an industry publication last summer that Obama opposes the doctrine -- a long-abolished policy that would require broadcasters to provide opposing viewpoints on controversial issues.

"As the president stated during the campaign, he does not believe the Fairness Doctrine should be reinstated," White House spokesman Ben LaBolt told

So much for Garvin's crystal ball.

Holy hail now he's got me thinking about Adrienne Barbeau again.

And Mrs. Naugatuck.


With Glenn Garvin.


(Ok, now it's officially getting weird.)


  1. Boy the way Glenn Miller played
    Songs that made the hit parade.
    Guys like us we had it made,
    Those were the days.

    And you knew who you were then,
    Girls were girls and men were men,
    Mister we could use a man
    Like Herbert Hoover again.

    Didn't need no welfare state,
    Everybody pulled his weight.
    Gee our old LaSalle ran great.
    Those were the days.

  2. I got your Irish up with that one, baby.

    NB - By the way, what does that mean, "get your Irish up?" and does it have anything to do with the "Irish curse?" Maybe we need to ask a certain Irish jurist what she knows about such things.

  3. I'd like to see Mrs. Naugatuck take her handbag and beat the living shit out of Garvin.

  4. Glenn Garvin-- The human Papa Smurf

  5. All that is left is for Glenn to be dipped in blue and move into a mushroom.


  6. Adrienne Barbeau! What a set of gaznoongas!!!!

  7. Wikipedia--

    Papa Smurf is a male fictional character from the Smurfs. He is the third oldest of the Smurfs (after Grandpa and Nanny), and their leader. He is 542 years old[1] (while the other Smurfs are approximately 100 years old), but is quite energetic for his age. He can be easily distinguished from the other Smurfs by his red clothes and his bushy white beard (which was brown in his younger days).

    Papa Smurf is a gentle, wise, and knowledgeable village elder. He serves as the Smurfs' leader and as a paternal figure of which the Smurfs usually go to when they require counsel and he is always concerned about the Smurf's wellbeing and harmony. He is very altruistic and always ready to help somebody, whether he is a Smurf or human. Papa Smurf also has diplomatic skills in case they meet humans or other creatures, and usually manages to speak without using the "smurf" word.

  8. Maude and was hotter. Then there's Maude, Maude, Maude!!!!

  9. Now I can't concentrate on work anymore. AB was always in my top 5 as a teenager.

  10. Lady Godiva was a freedom rider
    She didnt' care if the whole world looked.
    Joan of Arc with the Lord to guide her
    She was a sister who really cooked.

    Isadora was the first bra burner
    And you're glad she showed up. (Oh yeah)
    And when the country was falling apart
    Betsy Ross got it all sewed up.

    And then there's Maude.
    And then there's Maude.
    And then there's Maude.
    And then there's Maude.
    And then there's Maude.
    And then there's Maude.
    And then there's

    That old compromisin', enterprisin', anything but tranquilizing,
    Right on Maude

  11. No bra for Ms. Barbeau. She's in my top 5 ATF.

  12. Julie from the Love Boat.

  13. Shumie time with the Captain.

  14. SFL puts together a lucid, intelligent and well supported argument. Only to be met with comments focused entirely on a MILF's breasts. Go figure.

  15. 6:13-- Reason why this blog is the best and "healthy" Fridays.

  16. NOT just any Milf's breasts. But a top top all time favorite (ATF) legendary Milf.

    There is quite a difference.

    Tell me those aren't real and aren't SPECTACULAR. Go ahead. Tell me. I dare ya.

  17. Whatever gets the chevy rockin' for SFL....

  18. 6:29- "Healthy" Friday. Everday is Friday on the SFL blog

  19. Sperm Facials to MILFs' breasts. What next?

    BTW 3:09 -- Mrs. Edith Bunker hitting the high note,what a classic.

  20. Maude and The Jeffersons were a spin off from All In The Family and from Maude came Good Times. Would have loved to have seen The Bunkers visit the Jeffersons.

    @3:34, What about the Jeffersons' maid Florence beating the sh*t out of Glenn Garvin. She was sassy and fiesty.

  21. I think Mr. Bentley could kick Garvin's ass.

  22. 9:00pm-- Or Georges' mother, sweet Mother Jefferson.

  23. 9pm- in your dreams chump.

  24. SFL, it got weird a long time ago.

  25. @ 4:41

    Good call.

    Julie "meet me on the Lido deck" McCoy was a dirty girl. You know she was into threesomes with gopher and doc, and that she was a pioneer for interracial sitcom sex, because she and the bartender would have it. And, when she needed the attention of an older man, captain would sternly admonish her.


    Glenn Garvin

  26. How about a bra for garvin , for crissakes.
