Woden's Day Quickies
Katie Couric has won The Cronkite Award from the Annenberg School for Communication, for her Palin interviews.
In not exactly related news, a "Draft Palin" club held its first meeting in a Denny's, up in Connecticut.
In not exactly related to that news, unsubstantiated reports are coming in from Alaska that Sarah Palin's daughter, Bristol, and baby-daddy Levi Johnson have split off. I am sad to hear the news myself. I had between Feb. 15 and March 1, in the pool, so I just missed the pay out zone.
It totally unrelated news Grandmaster Shuck and Jive Michael Steele, it has been reported, might already be the intended target of a No Confidence Vote. I will say the following and even if I am not a fan of Steele I got to say what I believe is possible here (ain't saying it is provable true, just possible.) That would be that no matter what he said or did in the past few weeks, I think that buyer's remorse has set in with the GOP; they want to return that negro to the store, and get them some one who looks and sounds more like the majority of the party. And let's face obvious facts, and that is that the majority of the 90% white GOP are more comfortable being lead by a hate-oozing, not terribly morally anchored, leave alone morally consistent, fat, balding, generally unhealthy, and likely mentally disturbed ex pill head, than some jive talking, but only the 10 or more years older stuff -- don't wanna be too scary to ya'll black man.
I am not going to say sorry Michael, in the sense that I am sorry what happened to him all that much, but do say sorry Michael, in the sense that any victim of institutional racism does not deserve that shit. But my message to Mr. Steele, otherwise:
Them dicks never liked black folk all that much. That is why the majority of we black folk refuse to vote for them or support them. And despite their claims, generally, they are always totally and painfully aware of the white us/black them thing. And they are notoriously narrow with their "Our Kind of Negro," bigotry. So I can't be all that sorry for your ass, as you knew that, going in.
Speaking about hate-oozing, not terribly morally anchored, leave alone morally consistent, fat, balding, generally unhealthy, and likely mentally disturbed ex pill head, it is said that Rush Limbaugh is only slightly more popular, nationwide, than the Rev. Wright. But between you and me, I think the hate-oozing, not terribly morally anchored, leave alone morally consistent, fat, balding, generally unhealthy, and likely mentally disturbed ex pill head known as Rush is actually more repugnant than the Rev. Wright. After all (and I am not even church people) when Wright was all fired up in his pulpit, he was more in the position of wigging out before people he considered as family, and vice versa. Not to get too deep in the matter, but there is not a single African American in the USA who has not righteously felt anger for the persistence of Racism in American Society. However, Rush's anger is less of the kind that can be even remotely tied to real cause, and more instead, resembles that of a excessively bratty and spoiled child, momentarily thwarted in their desire to get and have something that they never were entitled to in the first place.
Lastly, kudos to Jon Stewart, for basically doing what no one else in TV (or in the regulatory agencies who might have jurisdiction) has yet done, and quite accidentally taking on CNBC. It is time for them, CNBC (and other bullshit lying-assed, if not corrupt business commentators and such) to pay for their crimes. And if there is such a blow back from a deep, and widespread probe of the so called finance news area that no commentator or writer will be willing to promote a stock, company or market sector, I say the following: good!
That is all for now. I need some chocolate.
