Politics, life, and other things that matter

When I got home from work, I turned on the TV to find out what the cable news networks are saying about the Libby trial. You know, the trial that revealed the extent of the Bushevik campaign to destroy Joe Wilson and his wife because Ambassador Wilson revealed Bush had lied in his State of the Union address.

Silly me. I didn’t consider that Anna Nicole Smith died today. It’s all Anna, all the time.

Dead Blonde Woman syndrome strikes again.

  1. Uh-huh.

    My favorite part from Brian Williams’ coverage of her death — which took up a goodly chunk of the NBC Evening News — was Williams, at the end of several minutes of story on someone who wouldn’t have rated three seconds on the NBC Evening News when David Brinkley was still running the ship — saying snottily that every cable TV network had live coverage at the scene of her death. Pot. Kettle. Black.

    I left MSNBC on, in the vain hope that they’d get back to their regular programming. Turned off the sound, but could see the picture. They literally cycled over and over through the same brief video clips: Anna getting out of a car, Anna hoisting her boobs for the camera, Anna testifying in court, rinse, repeat. It was the perfect illustration of how much news there was not in this story.

    Oh, just wait. I’ve dumped cable but broadcast is already stoking the flames of conspiracy. It’ll be a Kennedy who killed her, if not Hillary Clinton. Maybe they’ll have both Hillary Clinton and Joe Kennedy (doing business with Chavez). Oh, it’s going to be just awful.

    Even Keith was in on the mania.

  5. Know what’s REALLY scary: She’s getting far more coverage than Rep. Charlie Norwood (R-GA), who is going to die soon and who rather sensibly has decided not to spend his last months vomiting his guts out from chemo treatments. (He’s got cancer that’s metastasized in his liver and one of his lungs.) So a dead blonde trumps a dying congressman.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
