Crazy Ass Media Week

I didn't do anything differently this week. But suddenly, they like me, they really like me!

Seriously, here is how I will procrastinate from book-writing this week (if my publisher is reading this, this is just, um, a BIG joke...really...I swear!).

Monday - Cup o' Joe Radio show at 10:15 AM EST and BlogTalkRadio with my friend Sean-Paul Kelley of The Agonist at 7:30 PM EST.

Tuesday - Peter B. Collins show, 7PM EST.

Wednesday - Woo hoo freedom!

Thursday - Usual Young Turks segment, 8AM EST. Then I fly to New York to do The Paula Zahn show on CNN, from 8-9PM (I will be on a panel that will disappear and reappear numerous times throughout the show to discuss a variety of topics).

That is it so far. Lot's of people are going to legitimately get sick of me this week.

Everyday the media wipes Shrub's slate clean. They pretend he doesn't have a record of dismal failure in Iraq. I wish you were on all the time to point out Shrub has failed. this is nothing more than a delaying tactic so he doesn't have to face up to his failures. He will run back to Crawford and refuse to be seen in apublic again. There is no evidence the current proposal is working or will work, Bush is like George Custer only too much of a coward to go to war himself.
Why would anyone take any member of the Bush administrations word for anything.

too funny

Buzzflash. They are selling a magnetic sticker with this legend on it:

At least Bush had a plan for getting out of Vietnam.

Mr Media!!!

Whoooo hoooo!!!

Okay, now I'm gonna go stop looking at stuff...

Well at least I can tape Paula. Go you, Bulldog!

My father-in-law puts out a weekly joke letter to radio stations, etc.
I wanted to take credit for these, but, unlike BushCo., I have a conscience:

At his press conference President Bush said we are not planning a war with Iran. He then added, "There was no planning behind the war with Iraq either."

The fish and wildlife service has removed wolves from the endangered species list and added Republicans.

Last week at the Grammy's the audience was so loaded with singers and musicians, every time they exhaled the air had a street value of five hundred dollars.

Still having to go through this ridiculous log-in exercise; however, I will do it for YOU, Cliffie.

Since you are a lot more fearless and quick on your feet than I am, I am happy to let you lead the fight. After that completely ABSURD Victorisa Toensing Op-Ed piece in today's WaPo, I'm beginning to think that the Washington MSM needs a wholesale cleansing. And the first to retire is Bob Woodward. He used to be such a hero to me. Sigh . . .

Neighbor Barbara,
I used to admire Woodward too...back in the old days. What the hell happened to him?

Are you using your email address to log in? That's what I had to do.

And that lunatic Toensing would probably be a lot better off if she had a different husband, too.

I gotta tell you guys. I just don't even bother to read the crap spewed forth by Toensing and her ilk anymore.

It is this reason I cancelled my subscrption to the Washinton Post.

Every time I think this site recognizes me, I'm wrong. It won't recognize my password. WTF?

Anyway, a fun fact for the cognoscenti: Joe Digenova, Victoria Toensing's (sp? Who the hell cares?) husband was once the Reagan-appointed DA for the District. We have since decided to change the Home Rule Charter to allow our own elected DA. We'll see how far that gets.

Those two met at a Rethug convention and have managed to turn their Not-Carville/Matalin marriage into many $$$ and much fame in the MSM.

A house cleaning in journalism is in order. Including the "pundits."

Today's WaPo was just SO wrong. Why would they allow something obviously meant to influence the jury? This could have easily waited a week, or a year . . .

Another fun fact. Digenova once called me an "asshole" to a friend at Fox after I beat up on a conservative on air.

Needless to say I still feel the sting.
