The West Wing Hates the French, Too

I am watching the West Wing, and in this episode, President Bartlett sent in the military into a fictional African country to stop genocide during a ‘civil war’ (think Rwanda during the 90’s). At any rate, the French denied the Americans use of their airspace, and the last scene had the President shouting into his cellphone to ‘tell those pansy hairdressers I am going to shove a loaf of bread up their ass.”

Earlier in the show, everyone agreed that they hated the President’s daughter’s boyfriend, who is French, and spends all his camera time berating Bartlett.

The French- uniting Republicans and Hollywood.

Death of the Networks

Wanna know why the major networks are dying? It isn’t because of liberal bias. It is because I am stuck in my house with 30 inches of snow outside, and my choice on two of the major networks are the Fear Factor and then a two hour special on Michael Jackson OR three hours of Michael Jackson. Thanks, guys.

I am going to watch the Home and Garden channel- at least they are showing nice weather.

60 Minute Hacks

The Instapundit’s description of the 60 Minutes piece on ballistic fingerprinting is 100% accurate. My response was much less polite, and much more straightforward, and it involved an f-word.

I usually love 60 Minutes, so it bothers me when they get a story this wrong- how the hell am I supposed to trust them on other issues?

Adios Arianna

Arianna Huffington has been canned from one of her gigs. Expect much bitching from the usual suspects about the ‘conservative media.’

Did the worm hit again? I am having a hard time reaching a lot of sites. Of coruse, if it did, I am not sure how you would read this to respond, as Oliver Willis noted.
