Crazy-ass Melanie Morgan from Move America Forward is on Hardball again, and she is as nutty as some of you said she was. I am not sure how these knuckleheads flew under my radar for so long, but I need to keep an eye on them and will.
Also, Naomi Wolf is on, and my commie-liberal re-education has my enemies lists all screwed up, so I can’t remember whether I am supposed to instinctively attack or support her politics. I remember something about Gore and a brown coat, but other than that I am at a loss.
I will go on record and state that Naomi Wolf is smoking hot and I may have had some adult thoughts while she was talking. I feel it is my obligation to tell you this, if for no other reason than to give the feminist blogs a reason to keep hating me.
PS- It is Friday at the end of a long week, and I am on margarita #2.
PPS- Chris Matthews closed saying he hated the war and hates our government’s foreign policy, and as such has firmly cemented himself as an enemy of the people. Expect him to get the full-on Beauchamp from the patriots at Hot Air, Ace, and Confederate Yankee.
*** Update #3 ***
Margarita #4, and I am watching Hardball again. Let’s face it, I am home alone drinking and writing about it, might as well watch Hardball twice and publicly admit my social life is dead. At any rate, the hot CNBC chick Matthews perved last week is on, and she seems to be wearing a sweater buttoned up to her forehead. I guess she learned.
One other thing you can do to keep the feminist blogs hating you is call Melanie Morgan a whore, even though she’s hostile to feminists. Because Melanie Morgan is just a victim of patriachy.
Naomi Wolf first came to my attention with The Beauty Myth in 1991 (I was working in publishing and it was a hot title). The combination of her great looks with her attack on a culture that adulates great looks (name one that doesn’t!) drew a lot of commentary and made it memorable for me. Since then she’s been involved in one way or another with punditry, academia (I think), and mainstream feminism, though I think the latter relationship has been volatile.
At a relatively young age, she became literary star of what was later described as the ‘third-wave’ of the feminist movement and she is also known for her advocacy of progressive politics.
You forgot the best part. After that speech by Matthews, Morgan’s screen went blank.
He said, “thanks for that”.
If you’re on margarita #2, you should do some livevlogging about American Idol. I hear it’s in vogue.
But does Mr. Cole have breasts?
I guess it depends on how many margaritas he’s been drinking. Or maybe how many margaritas I’VE been drinking.
Melanie was as good of an example of bugfuck crazy as I have seen in a while. She combines the screaming theatrics of Nancy Grace with the self-assured lies of Dick Cheney. She actually looked at the camera and insisted that if we don’t shred the constitution NOW, the terrorists win. She’s on Hardball frequently but I think she even scared Matthews a bit.
And Rudy’s lion-as-welfare-recipient piece just makes me feel…well…icky.
#4? Can we expect JWWesque outbursts on the front page soon?
John, this post is hot, and I think you have a whole new future liveblogging tv stuff.
Except for The Wire, which has ratings somewhere below those of Mass in Albanian, for Shut-Ins.
Melanie cannot shine Naomi’s shoes. I mean, we are talking apples and oranges. Melanie is on the crack pipe, and Naomi is one of the most brilliant people in Punditovia.
TZ, I doubt Wolf reads this blog.
Shit! I’m on the West Coast…I wonder if I can catch that Hardball segment now?
When Chris Matthews starts looking good, put the Margarita pitcher down and change the channel.
John, if I may, and it may not be my place to say it, but you need to go out, get drunker, get laid and wake up missing a shoe, your shorts and your wallet. It happens sometimes, and it’s ok. My own wife has forgiven me for doing the same thing, and I’m not kidding.
I think a particle got out of the accelerator over there and clobbered one of your key brain cells.
This is about When Melanies Attack on Hardball. Gotta watch it, it’s great theater.
I too, was once a (shhhh!) conservative Republican.
My conversion wasn’t overnight, but took place during the first half of the Bush 41 administration.
It was a process of gradual realization that the GOP did not have my best interests in mind.
But as I moved farther and farther to the left, I began to see the lying and manipulation that defines today’s GOP, the appeals to hatred and bigotry.
I still have respect for old school Republicans like Barry Goldwater and Bob Dole. I don’t agree with their positions on the issues, but they were men of integrity. Even Ronald Reagan was a basically decent man.
Although today’s GOP is a cesspool, the Republican party was once a great and honorable organization. Hopefully, it someday will again regain the stature it had when it was founded.
Another reason I’m glad I only have analog tv — one night The News Hour ambushed me with that rabid Melanie person. It made me start paying closer attention to the people they were interviewing — zapper in hand — just in case.
I am not a feminist blog, just a feminist, and I say Melanie Morgan is a whore.
So apparently Chris Matthews has multiple personality disorder–I draw this conclusion from the fact that half the time he has his head all the way up George Bush’s butt and the other half of the time he says stuff like he hates the war, etc. Unfortunately, all of his personalities are rude, obnoxious boors.
The sad thing isn’t that you’re getting drunk at home alone; it’s that you’re getting drunk at home alone watching Hardball.
You oughta be checking out Dirty Jobs. Or Mythbusters. Or, if you like animal shows, Meerkat Manor.
It’d be a kick if you live blogged one of those.
A friend of mine once told about how he had dated a woman with multiple personalities. His comment was
“Wouldn’t you know it, there wasn’t a cook or a whore in the whole bunch.”
One thing that has been pointed out by certain commentators is that while Naomi Wolfe talks a hell of a lot about The Beauty Trap and feminism, she also has the most stereotypically girlish hairstyle.
Either she’s like Madonna and is trying to warp stereotypes, or she doesn’t know what the heck she’s projecting.
He already did and it was not pretty.
Besides he has a cat. Cats are far less forgiving of erratic behavior than partners/spouses. For one thing, I bet your wife didn’t piss on your favorite book/chair/shoes to register her dissaproval. Neither did she wind in and out of your feet as you staggered to the toilet in a spirited attempt to make you fall down and break your neck or stomp all over your already curdled stomach as you lay, gripping the bed and dealt with the spins.
She appears to have the brain of true journalist.
When In Doubt (About U.S.-China Relations), Ask Erin Burnett
I am ashamed that I laughed at John Stewart’s ripping into her.
Erin Burnett makes watching CNBC fun again. Maria Bartiromo move over. :)
I am in agreement with you. Maybe I should go have a drink or three, that way you can have reason to rag on me. I like that, nothing better.
On the serious side, is Tim originally from New York.
Instead of watching Hardball twice, you should watch it once and then switch to Dr. Who. YOu do watch Dr. Who, don’t you John?
That said, I wouldn’t insult whores by comparing Morgan to one. She’s something much, much more degraded.
Melanie Morgan and Michael (Savage) Weiner are both Bay Area products. This is not something we brag about.
I know this immature, but what the hell is wrong with Melanie Morgan’s face. Something about her mouth really puts me off. It’s like a cross between Mr. Bill and the talking plant from Little Shop of Horrors.
Bad grammar above. It’s late.
WTB +2 to Breasts. Have mats will tip.
Aha! So John has joined my crusade to turn “beauchamp” (e.g., hysterical overreaction to a trivial or downright nonexistent political or intellectual offense) into a slang phrase right alongside “fisk”?
If you meam me, no. Tim comes from Not New York and currently lives in Pittsburgh.
I had no idea who this Morgan beeyotch was, until I found this. How someone can be so fucking stupid and still get on the telly is a complete mystery.
Is it? For me, the mystery is that more of the people on it aren’t stupid, since the ones who aren’t seem to be the exception.
Very funny post.
I don’t know about Chrissy, his ho##-erotic Bush fantasies after “Mission Accomplished” tarnished his reputation. I think he has bimbos like Morgan on his show is for theatrics. Maybe MM can cook up a batch of cookies and help Stephen Baldwin show “Leave it to Beaver” DVD’s to our troops and the insurgents.
Here, we call it the Darrell Effect.
The reason why whores like Morgan are on TV is because all these shows have to have someone representing an opposing point of view, even where none exists.
We have reached a stage in this administration that no rational human being can defend its policies. How can you defend the Iraq debacle, Katrina, the torture, lawless wiretapping, the AG, the political firings. Only the most ethically challenged and intellectually dishonest i.e. your thugs and whores are going to show their faces on TV and defend the halfwit (George) and his evil master (Dick).
