Standing in the checkout line at the supermarket today I saw the weekly country western mag. The photo and feature article was about some new young dude who, among other tings, discusses his visions of God. Give me Hank Snow any day. All he had were visions of Jim Beam.
Will somebody please introduce TV pitchman Billy May to the concept of microphones. Really, Billy, you don't need to shout. Those microphone gadgets actually do convey your voice to the folks at home.
Tim Russert/Chris Matthews (I'll let my cousin Terry Butler handle this--from an e mail today):
"Did you see (probably not since you hate both of the fuckers--me too) him and Matthews yukking it up after, Matthews talking about it as if Russert was a high school football player that had just beat up an opposing quarterback. Russert reminded me of an umpire who thinks he's more important than the the players and the game itself.
Matthews even referenced The Old Man and the Sea, telling Russert he thought he got that "Marlin a little closer to the boat" when talking about the line of questioning that got Clinton to admit she regretted her vote on the war. Disgusting. Russert bragged about "tough questioning" as if he was a voice for the people, vetting the candidates. We don't need your help, you bulging, bloated toad."
Ty Pennington the smarmy host of Extreme Makeover. I've mentioned him before. I don't think I've heard such a tricked-up voice since the great Tony Randall used to do mock radio announcer voices. All that bogus breathiness and bullshit Concern for Humanity. In his spare time he probably strangles swans.
Press bimbo Dana Perrino. It's a good thing she's good looking because otherwise we'd realize just how stupid she REALLY is.
Bono who has apparently never read about being over-exposed.
The right wing talk show hack who intro'd John McCain last night (of course McCain knew nothing about this Billy Cunningham who is on five hundred radio and stations and who spent time with McCain's people coming up with ways to fir eup the troops):
"“Now we have a hack, Chicago-style Daley politician who is picturing himself as change. When he gets done with you, all you’re going to have in your pocket is change,” Cunningham said as the audience laughed.
The time will come, Cunningham added, when the liberal-leaning media will “peel the bark off Barack Hussein Obama” and tell the truth about his relationship with indicted fundraiser Antoin “Tony” Rezko and how Obama got “sweetheart deals” in Chicago. He said he envisions a future in which “the great prophet from Chicago takes the stand and the world leaders who want to kill us will simply be singing Kumbaya together around the table with Barack Obama.”
Nobody has yet pointed out that when you watch him walk andyou realize that he's a long way from the masculine ideal (and I don't mean gay). One more ugly little munchkin and fake tough guy to infest the airwaves..
