Plugging Monday's column, and thoughts and prayers for those stuck in New Orleans and other areas

At what the media and Cindy Sheehan calls “Camp Casey” near Bush’s ranch in Crawford, Texas, which I’ve dubbed as “Yasgur’s Farm south” because of all the drifters, professional protesters, and folk music has-beens who don’t know Woodstock’s over, members of the U.S. Military continue to have their collective intelligence insulted.

How and why is this happening? Read “The U.S. Military: The few, the proud, the stupid”

In other news, I can’t believe how many people in New Orleans and surrounding areas I’ve heard interviewed who are going to “ride out the hurricane.” The reason is usually because they have cats and dogs. This is uber-stupid, especially for those in New Orleans.

If I hear one more reporter or anchor say “this could be the doomsday scenario”, my foot’s going through the TV.

Geraldo, mentioned a couple of posts below this one, was on FOX News acting as if he was auditioning for the part of the reporter in “Armageddon II.”

After this thing’s over, hopefully it will be shown that, though the hurricane was nasty, the most blowing air came from the mouths of reporters.

Jane Fonda's "pathetic old hippie" bus tour rolling to your town soon

Jane Fonda’s hitting the road in early September to “protest the war, but show support for the troops.” This will mark the second time Fonda has supported the troops, the first being in the early 70’s when she boosted the morale of the North Vietnamese Army.

Accompanying Fonda will be the anti-war, pro Palestine member of British Parliament, George Galloway. Hopefully Galloway gets a turn at the wheel of the bus, since driving down the wrong side of the road would be the perfect metaphor for the idealism behind the tour.

The bus tour will stop only for speeches, and to fill up the tank and further enrich Halliburton. Actually, the bus is billed as “bio friendly”, which means the pollution won’t be spewed by the bus, but rather it’s occupants.

The last time I saw Jane Fonda interviewed was on Chris Matthews’ on “Hardball” a few weeks ago. I have a few observations about that interview: The face looked worked on, the boobs looked too big to be real, the makeup looked too thick, and the opinions were radical mumbo-jumbo – but enough about Matthews.

Geraldo says it isn't possible to rehabilitate child molesters (unfortunately, it is possible to acquit them) — plus a bio of Geraldo

In an appearance on Bill O’Reilly’s show, Geraldo Rivera said that it isn’t possible to rehabilitate child molesters. He’s probably right, but even if he isn’t, they should be tossed away forever. I’m not willing to risk any kid because we ‘think’ somebody won’t do it again.
Geraldo’s hung around with Michael Jackson enough to be a leading expert in this area.

By the way, if you’re not very familiar with Geraldo Rivera, here’s a brief bio of the ace reporter:

__________

Geraldo Rivera was born in New York City in 1943. Being a child of Jewish and Puerto Rican descent wasn’t easy. Besides getting extremely nervous whenever he got on an elevator with himself, he was constantly picked on by his elementary school contemporaries for his mixed heritage and thick mustache.

The mustache would become one of Geraldo’s trademarks, but it was also was a burden. The kids would laugh at the little eight year old boy with the funny mustache, and when he got older, it even made President Clinton laugh, most likely because it tickled his ass.

By the early 1960’s, Geraldo was studying to become a lawyer. He was thinking ahead. He knew that if he ever reached his dream of becoming a reporter, being a lawyer would lend him even more credibility. After years of hard work and no doubt hours of self congratulatory conversation with family and friends, Geraldo was to finally achieve his dream of becoming a reporter.

As a member of the Latino activist group called the Young Lords, he appeared on the evening news as a spokesperson for the group so often that local station WABC hired him as a temporary reporter. They figured they could force him into less air time that way.

After a successful run at WABC, Geraldo then went on to continue a successful investigative journalism career on such shows as “Good Night, America”, “Good Morning, America”, “Hey There, America”, “Geraldo, Live At Budokan”, and “20/20”. He also was a regular guest on the Barbara Walters interview show “What The Hell Did You Just Say?”

Geraldo was on top of the world. As Barbara often said, he knew exactly what kind of “twee” he wanted to be. That high flying feeling wouldn’t last for long though, because Geraldo was dismissed from ABC in 1985, and in his first attempt to rekindle his career went down like Rex Reed at a cast party for “Rent”. Geraldo was about to open Al Capone’s vault, where the only thing emptier than the vault were the expressions on the faces of the viewers.

The 1986 special “The Mystery of Al Capone’s Vault” was a ratings winner up to the point where the vault was opened, then the networks noticed a large albeit temporary rise in the ratings for “Life With Lucy”. Geraldo was expecting to open the vault up and find a stash of guns, bootlegged liquor and cash, but instead only saw his panicked reflection at the other end of it. His planned follow-up special, “The Mystery of Whitney Houston’s Stash Drawer” never got the green light from network executives.

After the Capone disaster, Geraldo’s credibility had been slapped down to the level of Phil Donohue and Sally Jesse Raphael, so he did what every self respecting journalist would have done, he joined them by starting his own show, creatively titled “Geraldo”. With heavy hitting show topics like “Elvis: Dead or Alive” and “Satan’s Black Market” (which, by the way, is where you can buy VHS copies of “Geraldo”) Rivera was able to find enough objects in Darwin’s recycle bin to sustain the show from 1987 until 1998.

Most agree that the highlight of that show’s run was when Geraldo was hit in the face by a chair thrown by a white supremacist. The white supremacist later apologized to the chair, and Geraldo was suffering from a broken nose and more exposure than he could have ever hoped for. “Dat guy broke by doze. I’b gonna get hib for dat” said Geraldo as he left the hospital with his proboscis wrapped like a non FDA approved deli sandwich.

After “Geraldo” ended, Rivera was quickly hired by NBC to sit at a desk and host a nightly Alan Dershowitz dis-infomercial. This program was soon beaten in the ratings by a test pattern on channel 472, and cancelled.

Things then picked up for Geraldo. He left CNBC for the FOX News network, and was sent to Afghanistan and Iraq as a war correspondent for what FOX News secretly calls “Project ‘get Geraldo killed’.”

Geraldo has said that if he ever runs into Osama bin Laden, he’ll “shoot him myself.” Should this happen, if the luck Geraldo’s had in the past holds true to form, he’ll run into a cave with his gun cocked and loaded, and standing there holding the cash, guns and booze from Capone’s vault will be Osama bin Laden, laughing his ass off.

France accuses Lance Armstrong of doping — German, Prussian armies next to have French finger pointed at them?

Here’s something from the “lighter side” file to kick off the weekend.

Some in France have attributed seven time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong’s successes on the use of performance enhancing drugs.

I took the liberty of writing a news story that I’m sure you may see if the French are successful in their quest to wave away Armstrong’s victories as merely the accomplishments of a jacked up druggie.

This could be tomorrow’s headline and story: France accuses German, Prussian armies of doping.

Hey… could happen.

Vermin on the mount – Al Sharpton to legitimize Sheehan protest

The Reverend Al Sharpton has announced that the antiwar protest in Crawford, Texas has finally gained the focus of enough television cameras to satisfy the demand in Sharpton’s contract rider.

In light of that, down to Crawford he goes, more than likely with Tawana Brawley in tow so, just in case the Sheehan thing’s a failure, Al can slap her around and then accuse white Texans of violent racism so the trip’s not a total waste.

Crawford’s now attracting more weasels than an open-air chicken coop, and it won’t let up until Bush leaves for D.C., and Sheehan’s bus caravan hits the road.

One other thing that’s becoming an annoyance– how is Cindy Sheehan a “peace mom”? She’s gained that title for some reason. Perhaps she’s a “peace woman”, but she’s no “peace mom”. Sheehan raised a son who– gulp— joined the military and was off killing people before his own unfortunate death.

“Peace mom”? Bullshit. Phil Donohue’s mother? That’s a “peace mom”.

Cellulite 911: Michael Moore takes plenty of fertilizer to the fat farm

Michael Moore, the man who, wherever you see him, you assume that’s where the bus stop is, has checked into a “fat farm” with the hope of losing twelve pounds in the first three weeks.

Twelve pounds? I’m guessing he drops four or five pounds when he hits the john every morning, and it’s going to take three weeks to lose twelve? Moore can lose half a dozen pounds just by shaving.

Michael’s at the Pritikin Longevity Center And Spa in Aventura, Florida, should you want to drop him a card or he’s asked you pay a visit and smuggle in a bakery.

Poor guy’s probably gone cold turkey and is suffering the accompanying “BLT’s”.

The last thing fudge sees before it dies

Turns out that Pat Robertson's not alone — The media must like Chavez a lot more than they liked Hussein

After Pat Robertson’s comment that the United States should assassinate Hugo Chavez, I wrote that, had Robertson called for the assassination of the American president, he’d be taking less heat from the media and others. He couldn’t really be taking much more.

After Robertson’s words, all hell broke loose. The left, and many on the right, were bashing the wacky Pat as typical of the Christian wingnut mentality. Assassinations of foriegn officials are illegal, after all. What a dick!

Well, Hugo Chavez must have better P.R. people than Saddam Hussein did.

How short our memories are. It seems like only yesterday when so many members of the media were suggesting that the U.S. kill Saddam Hussein:

Thomas Friedman, foreign affairs columnist, New York Times, November 6: “Saddam Hussein is the reason God created cruise missiles. …So if and when Saddam pushes beyond the brink, and we get that one good shot, let’s make sure it’s a head shot.”

**George Stephanopolous, former Clintonite and current ABC News analyst, on ABC’S “This Week,” Nov. 9: “This is probably one of those rare cases where assassination is the more moral course…we should kill him.”

(**Ol’ George, Bubba’s “mini-me” for a few years, also wrote a 1997 column for Newsweek entitled “Why we should kill Saddam”)

Sam Donaldson, co-host of “This Week,” Nov. 9: We should kill Saddam “under cover of law…. We can do business with his successor.”

Jonathan Alter, Newsweek, November 17: “It won’t be easy to take him out. …But we need to try, because the only language Saddam has ever understood is force.”

No, there’s no media bias. Not at all.

What makes these people different than Pat Robertson? Robertson’s main problem is that he’s not a member of the mainstream media, and therefore doesn’t have the ability to bury his own story.
