KOEB 9/28/05


"Hmm...I had been hoping to watch a little baseball tonight, but it says here that Tom DeLay's been indicted and my presence is expected on Countdown...oh well.

"These trivial matters they call me back to my job to cover!

"Please watch, and help ease my pain."

--K.O.

1. Hm...do we sense Tom DeLay Puppet Theatre?
Nothing against Anna Nicole's edition last night (which got better on a second viewing).

I'll bet "Keeping Tabs" tonight has a blurb on Jennifer Garner spilling the fact that her baby's a little girl, on Jay Leno last night.

96. It didn't, and nothing can ease MY pain.
The Indians are choke-choke-choking...majorly.

Sorry to be late, but this is a bad night. :-(

Only Keith makes it all worthwhile.

99. You know, Rev, it's probably sacrilege to say this
but I get the feeling sometimes that on DU, betraying any sort of allegiance to any sort of Christianity causes you to automatically lose all credibility.

It's like you HAVE to be an atheist to have street cred or something.

Sad.

sometimes it seems like people only respond to posts to be hostile. Not always, but often. Makes me wonder if they're venting rage from Real Life -- sort of a man beats wife, wife hits kid, kid kicks dog, dog logs in to DU to post phenomenon. ;-)

160. Poor Wolfie. Now you know how I feel whenever I read DU threads about
how Ohio deserves all the dead soldiers it gets from Iraq, because we're all a bunch of stupid country hicks who only care about God, gays and guns, and we elected * and stuck the rest of America with him.

Like hell (or more to the point, like Blackwell) we did.

It must be REAL misery sitting there practically in his backyard and being assumed to be his fan just because of geographic proximity.

There are some unfortunate nasty elements of DU who (and I regret this) are Exhibit A that freepers always point to when trying to convince people that all liberals are big-city elitists with their noses in the air. They are NOT representative of all liberals or progressives, of course, but the freepers want to make it LOOK as if they are, because they are so easy to dislike.

Remember all the jokes right after the election from blue-state people about how they were going to secede from all the red states and take all the great, sophisticated culture with them and leave the red states with nothing but hayseed crap? Of course you do. :-( That was a really good example. They never seem to think of how they'd feel if they were visiting Europe and got crapped on because they were assumed to be a stupid hayseed who supported Bush just because they were American.

140. oh, well
we're vixens cuz we're special. i wouldn't want to be one of the "beautiful people"....too much work to keep up preconceived notions, ya know. vixens, otoh, can do & say what they want.

let me put it this way, it's like being in a musical, say "Annie Get Your Gun." most of the women i tried out with wanted to be Annie. i wanted to be in the chorus. why? because if you're annie, the audience wants to see you play ethel merman. if you're in the chorus, you get to do what you want (and you'd be surprised with what i got away with.) :evilgrin:

151. Um, ... I was in that musical, too.
:blush: My best friend was Annie. I was "Mrs. Blackfoot," the indian who ripped out springs from the old sofa and called them "Bracelets." (that was my one line.) So, the 5'10" redhead had to go in early for full-body makeup, braid and spraypaint her hair, and take an hour-long shower after every performance. My one shot at a musical, and I end up fulfilling nasty racist stereotypes. :eyes: And my hometown is known as "The Land of Blackhawk."

Our "off-stage" time was spent slapping the teen boys who were groping us during the show. The irony: the two guys who were doing it are now fully out of their closets.

(even back then, I couldn't get groped by someone who knew what they were doing. :cry:)

but it's been forever so who knows. i did see a revival of it a few years ago with cheryl ladd as annie. :rofl: omg, so they took out the racial stereotypes in exchange for making the musical even MORE offensive to women. can't win with this one...good music, but you can't salvage the book.

161. Hey, if you think THAT is bad
we had a play my junior year in high school...it was originally published in the '50s, and all the characters were white except for one black character who was very stereotyped...and everyone in my school was white, so a white kid played the black character.

143. That's standard Washington Post operating procedure.
Now that Mary McGrory and Herblock are no longer with us, there's almost no moral compass at all at The Washington Post, and the official stance of the paper seems to be knee-jerk bashing of the Clintons, grading Bush II on a curve, and taking the line that Reagan was a Popular President. :puke:

Recently I saw two different articles about Bill Clinton's influence in the world. One mentioned his leadership in the foreign policy arena and another actually dealt with his receipt of an award for efforts against AIDS. BOTH articles worked in references to Monica Lewinsky -- both!

Dana Milbank has been known to tick off the Bush administration (that's why he's not in the White House press corps anymore), but he indulges in that WP anti-Clinton shtick to an unbecoming degree. I actually e-mailed Countdown about it.

I may vote for Kinky. Don't tell anyone, though, K? :7

I've only seen Chris Bell speak once and he was just dull, dull, dull. I'm gonna see him a couple of more time and see what I think before I make up my mind.

144. Nooooooo! Don't tell them! They'll roast me ALIVE!
:silly:

Seriously, I am willing to give Chris Bell a couple of more hearings before I make up my mind-- it's a long way til next November, after all-- but the one time I saw him speak, YAWN YAWN YAWN. Just another white-guy politician nattering on about policy. He really managed to come off as a "Washington insider" telling little anecdotes about seeing Tom DeLay on a plane and ignoring each other, etc. Totally rubbed me the wrong way.

I wish Ron Kirk would run. :7

150. Yep, anything can happen between now and November.
Hey, Gina, there's a fun thread in GD that's going on. Guy unhappy with the indictments, saying that Ronnie Earl flubbed it. He's claiming to be a big "operative" from Houston who was "working 3 years to nailed Scumbag DeLay here in Houston and Austin." Oh, but he has to slip in a big ol' unsubstantiated swipe against Texas Democratic Party Chair Soechting. :eyes: I personally think this guy doesn't even live in Houston. He spells it "Sugarland" not "Sugar Land," for one.

110. Congrats
Yes, they did some great caps tonight. Although I was kind of hoping they'd do something with the "Love Boat" music when reporting on the cruise ships.

I did notice an interesting inadvertent screen composition at one point. They had an image of one of the ships framed with the word "COUNTDOWN" at the top of the frame and right beneath that was the name of the ship: "Ecstasy."

So, either their caption folks are Steely Dan fans, or someone just feels the same way about the show they work on as we do.

Later on i started to wonder why it was to another guy.

And i still turned out straight :rofl:

Daniel is travelling tonight on a plane
I can see the red tail lights heading for Spain
Oh and I can see Daniel waving goodbye
God it looks like Daniel, must be the clouds in my eyes

They say Spain is pretty though I've never been
Well Daniel says it's the best place that he's ever seen
Oh and he should know, he's been there enough
Lord I miss Daniel, oh I miss him so much

Daniel my brother you are older than me
Do you still feel the pain of the scars that won't heal
Your eyes have died but you see more than I
Daniel you're a star in the face of the sky

Daniel is travelling tonight on a plane
I can see the red tail lights heading for Spain
Oh and I can see Daniel waving goodbye
God it looks like Daniel, must be the clouds in my eyes
Oh God it looks like Daniel, must be the clouds in my eyes

At least, as long as I've been watching. he didn't do it for awhile with Katrina, but he's been doing it for awhile. I think it even predates "keep your knees loose."

Ah, it's raining here. Soooooo nice.

Oh, shit, I haven't cleaned out the gutters in MONTHS! :rofl:

118. Actually, he did say "Good night and good luck" all through Katrina.
He just dumped the "Keep your knees loose" and the paper wad throw.

I think he's been saying "Good night and good luck" since the show began. He's only not said it in a very few cases. Has nothing to do with the movie AT ALL. Although I don't doubt he'll go see it.

122. well, it does have to do with the movie insofar as...
the movie is about Murrow, and K.O.'s tagline is an hommage to Murrow. :P

133. Yeah, but he's definitely NOT starting to do it just as of now,
so his doing it has zippo to do with the movie's release. That's all I'm sayin'.

86. if bugman is ever on countdown
i want these 2 things mentioned:

delay's height (or lack thereof) and the fact that he is from Laredo.

both of these are guaranteed to make this sob come un-frickin'-glued & make his head spin. :evilgrin:

149. Forgive my ignorance,
but what's the deal about that? They're not lilly-white? Hispanic or Black, or something else? Is there a stigma attached?

I live in a lilly-white state, so I'm not current with the delicacies of geographical racism.

Around WI, the joke is if you want to piss off Senselessbrenner, call him "Tex." No, not because of anything to do with Texas. Let's just say much of his family $$ came from the sale of certain feminine hygene products. :)

154. snort. I'm not sure about Laredo
except it is right across the border from Nuevo Laredo, so maybe there's an intimation that he's less than lily-white? :shrug: As if a little Hispanic blood is a novelty in Texas??

156. over 90% of the population here
is Hispanic. Don't know about the DeLay family's roots, though. Bring up the fact he's from here, & you'll likely see what it's like when someone spits nails. Ok, so it's not the greatest place to be or be from, but it's not THAT bad.....we do have indoor plumbing, and the streets are paved...... :eyes:
