Hillary Clinton, as predicted here several days ago, announced that she is forming an exploratory committee for the purpose of establishing candidacy for the Democratic Nominee for President of the United States. This should get interesting, as the musical duo of Clinton and Obama leaves me enough material to write a book larger than War and Peace. Several other politicians have announced their candidacy as well but are too numerous to mention and do not have a snowball's chance in hell of winning. I sure, however, they will manage to pocket a lot of illicit political contributions as most politicians are wont to do.
American Idol, viewed by 37 million viewers, is attempting to join the competition in my current Feud and Fuss (F&F) list. The show will qualify into my Feud and Fuss list because one of the qualifications for said list is that at least one member of the group must be an asshole! After reading their current remarks and actions, I analyzed the panel of judges. I have decided that they do qualify as one of the judges, whose initials are Simon Cowel, is definitely an asshole!
Cowell insulted a wannabe contestant and referred to him as a "Bush Baby" and prompted reporters to illustrate a picture of the "african primate". (I swear I do not make this crap up, I just report it).
Ah yes...but where does Rosie Fat Ass fit into the scenario? Well, it seems in a current discussion on "The View", The Chubster decided to go on a rant about how mean and nasty the judges were on the recent airing of the view. Roly Poly remarked, "Isn't that what America thinks is entertainment, to make fun of someone's physical appearance?" (Again, I just report them, I don't write them, but kudos to the writers)
Time Out ! Didn't Rosie just recently insult and make fun of Donald Trump? I'm sure I read something about that. Didn't Rosie just recently make fun of Asian People with her "ching chong" remarks on the air?
Fortunately there's a new format. It's called I-AP, Insult the shit out of someone and then apologize publicly. This a happy hour two for one-er.Publicity and more publicity.
Speaking of happy hour, Paula Abdul has to be cut off at two drinks after her slurring interview the other day.
And....Black actor Isaiah Washington, one of the stars of the Golden Globe winning television show, Grey's Anatomy, was heard to call fellow actor T.R. Knight a "fag". After initial denials, Washington resorted to the aforementioned I-AP .
Voila! Tres bien! The Grey's Anatomy remark drew GLAD out of the closet to denounce anyone using the "F" word. We now have the "N" word and the "F" word, Thankfully, asshole!, is still accepted.
The Pictures: Hillary's running, (2) Simon, Paula and the somewhat normal whats-his-name, (3) Simon's "Bush Baby", (4) Paula and the interview, (5) The Chubster, (6) Denny Doherty, of The Mamas and The Papas dies at age 66, (7) The Mamas and The Papas
This Date In History: 1961; President John F. Kennedy makes his memorable inauguration speech. 1964; The album "Meet The Beatles" makes it's debut in the United States. 1981; American Hostages are released from Iran after 444 days. We should have nuked the bastards right there and then!
Denny Doherty, one of the members of the musical group, The Mamas and The Papas, died yesterday at the age of 66. A definite musical influence in my life, the outstanding harmonies of the group were easily identified in any song they performed. The group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998.
Humorist Art Buchwald recently died only to return on You Tube to announce, in a previously recorded new idea (My Obit), that he had died. Leave it to Buchwald. Ya Gotta love it!
