Friday Grab Bag
That is my way to breach the subject about how it seems that they, the radio head and pundit chix of the GOP seem to be in a death spiral down to out dick their male counterparts. And you know darn well, that is a hard thing to do.
Case in point: Laura Ingraham's nasty-assed swipe at Meghan McCain, calling her plus-sized.
To my mind Ingraham has always had something of a fairly obvious mean streak in her. She seemed, only in degrees, of slightly better temperament than Ann Coulter, who of course is behind the story here. Ms. McCain dared speak the truth, that that harridan Coulter is,"offensive, radical, insulting and confusing." That is the cause for Ingraham's smack at McCain. So comes the question? What is Ingraham's motivation? Is Coulter some Queen Spider, and Ingraham 'has her back' out of loyalty or some such? Or is it more a matter of selfish serving. I mean really. Could this be more a matter of bitchy Republican women being upset when that is pointed out, even when the target is not themselves? All for one, one for all?
In any case, Ingraham may not make Keith Olbermann's Worst Person in the World list this week, but she gets my floating award, for being one of the "Worst Public Republicans of the Week."
Moving on to another matter, slightly related, as it does have to do with another named McCain, and more stupidity in temper tantrum throwing, to protect the bad name of someone who has a well deserved bad name. And I am talking about John McCain, who it is said, is holding up Pres. Obama's nominee for Secy Interior as the fellow in question once said something, not even actually insulting, but more and only mildly critical of Reagan. And this is on the record.
John McCain Hearts Ronnie Reagan.
Before I move on, John McCain is the weirdest critter in D.C. Politics. On one day, on some issues, he can be the voice of reason, a rarity in a party of delusional, dysfunctional ding bats. And then, and sometimes on the same day, even, he acts as erratic and emotional as a bratty pre pubescent child.
Changing topic once more, I mention last night's moment of joy, when Jon Stewart had that Cramer guy on The Daily Show. Here is how I described it to a friend.
Stewart ripped the skin off him.
Ok. I actually said it with more ghetto inflection, but I am not in the mood for that stuff now. Anyway, at least one commentator I saw over on HuffPo is predicting Cramer will loose his show within 60 days. Good Riddance. Hope they boot Ricky Santelli while they are cleaning house. And they need some kind of watchdog for CNBC, someone to keep the broadcasts more ethical and honest. I volunteer myself for the job. I would be so good at it, you would not believe it.
Ok. That is enough for now. As ever, I reserve the right to add or edit, later.
