  • Gutfeld monologue on irregular bedtimes supposedly leading to misbehaved kids.  From Greg: Bad parents lead to misbehaved kids.  They blame lack of sleep, but irregular bedtimes are due to lack of parental guidance, etc.  Parents aren’t there.  Kids don’t go to bed.  That’s it.  But scientists are too scared to say it.  What cowards.

One in every five of the kids went to bed at inconsistent times when they were three years old.
