Something happens which stands out in its own way, and before I know it, I'm using that immortal line from Bill Murray in Ghostbusters. Yesterday, I came across three such somethings:
The New C-Word
With the media having tried to affix the motive for the Tucson shootings on rhetoric that supposedly instigates violence, we now have a CNN anchor apologizing for the use of that horrible word crosshairs (gasp! hope nobody has been motivated to violence because of me!). This anchor acted as if Howard Stern uttered an obscenity; talk about stupidity of the highest order! Of course, this is CNN I'm talking about here, so what else is new?
Speaking of the quote-unquote “most trusted name in news”, the New York Post has a story claiming CNN will be getting rid of Kathleen Parker as co-host of their tanking program Parker/Spitzer. If that's true, I don't know how to react except...(sounds of uncontrollable laughter). Although the idea of keeping a guy like Eliot Spitzer seems so laughable, I find the idea of the network (which decided to air this show in the first place) deciding to get rid of Kathleen Parker instead doubly laughable. I guess her harping about Sarah Palin didn't do much for the show, now did it? (sounds of uncontrollable laughter)
Randall Terry For President
The founder of the pro-life group Operation Rescue recently announced he is running for President in 2012 against Barack Obama, as a Democrat (sounds strange since he's described as a lifelong Republican). He isn't trying to win, mind you, he's trying to take advantage of primary election rules so he can run ads during the Super Bowl, ads aimed to showcase the President's pro-abortion stance. I don't know what to expect from this latest effort of Terry's; whether it will have any impact on the election in 2012 is debatable. In any event, it's something you don't see every day.
