Personal Aside: I Had No Thoughts While Shaving This Morning—None…but Over Coffee These Three.


1. CNN’s Objection to Tea Party.

For those of you who’ve seen it, CNN’s coverage of the Chicago anti-tax tea party downtown was intended to be similar to all the other elites’ reaction to conservative movements: disdainful. Usually they allow this to show by the reporter’s supercilious uplifted eyebrow, looking around to find an opponent…in this case the very willing Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky…and summarizing with a summary statement that can be taken as dismissive…winding up with a lefty meaningful dramatic pause. The CNN correspondent here was Susan Roesqen (close enough to my own surname to cause me to lift MY eyebrow). She was interviewing a dissenter and making the point against the, to her, tacky demonstration in her oblique, arched way when she let fire with a salvo that all this was a staging by the “ultra-right-wing Fox News” anyhow. Another reason why CNN is dragging its tail in the cable ratings.

Back in New York, anchor Anderson Cooper, Gloria Vanderbilt’s pampered son, went into a feline tizzy with a sour demeanor…as if someone slipped a lemon into his fruit-bowl mélange …complaining that it is very difficult to get a sage commentary with all the skuzzy tea-bag revolutionaries about. Poor dear.

2. Another Recruit for the Vatican Library’s Dewey Decimal System Brigade.

The Church needs many more men to work in the bowels of the Vatican Library inscribing volumes with Dewey Decimal System identifications. My nomination when the next opening occurs is the eminent Cardinal Jean-Claude Turcotte of Montreal who just finished contradicting the teachings of the Church on abortion. One reason could be that he’s been wearing a mitre too small for him and which is too tight, constricting the vessels leading to the brain.

Turcotte said, “Personally I am against murder but can understand that sometimes when someone is being attacked, they need to kill someone in self-defense. I am against abortion but I can understand that in certain cases there is almost no other choice than to practice it.”

Really? The case involves those who participated in the abortion of a nine-year-old Brazilian girl’s twins by Brazilian Archbishop Cardoso of Recife. The girl was raped but her young age makes it mandatory to the um so-called mind of Cardinal Turcotte that innocent life be taken. No compassion or outward evangelization of the unfortunate girl, her parents and the performers of this murder fazed Turcotte.

Turcotte has been mentioned in the past as a possible candidate for Pope. Let us pray the Holy Spirit has other plans for him. My suggestion is the Vatican library basement.

3. The Topinka Self-Publicity Campaign Proceeds.

Oh dear, Judy is thinking of running either for state treasurer again or comptroller. Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn—just stop polluting the papers with your self-aggrandizing publicity about the loss of your little dog who…she told Steinberg…”pee’d in 100 countries.”

See what I mean by low rent?
