JournoLister Ben Smith and Matt Drudge were on the job last night spreading misinformation. Our comments section last night was also on the job was on the job and a lot of great information was provided.
JournoLister Ben Smith’s article still has as the headlinel: “Clinton Pushed Meek To Quit Florida Race“. Matt Drudge featured a double headline (“CLINTON PUSHED BLACK CANDIDATE TO GET OUT; OBAMA CAMPAIGNED FOR MEEK LAST WEEK”). One headline duplicated the Smith misinformation but provocatively replaced Meek’s name with “black candidate”; the other headline was about how Barack Obama campaigned for Meek last week. The pictures also added to the ugliness. The implication from Drudge is “racist” Bill and good ol’ Barack.
JournoLister Smith is wrong because Bill Clinton did not “push” anyone to do anything – Kendrick Meek says so. Bill Clinton was asked for advice by Kendrick Meek and Bill Clinton provided it. As for Matt Drudge, we discussed his protection of Barack Obama two days ago and of course we all know Drudge’s history with Bill Clinton.
Let’s put some facts on the table for misleading JournoLister Ben Smith because his Clinton hate and Obama love married to sloppiness and haste misinform Americans (Matt Drudge immediately ran away from his deceptive headlines and today has a picture of a smiling Marco Rubio and the headline “Dem Nightmare”).
Drive by shooter Ben Smith knows by now Bill Clinton did not push anyone to do anything. Smith also does not bother to inform his readers of the history in the Florida Senate race. Specifically JournoLister Ben Smith looks the other way when it comes to Barack Obama.
Barack Obama’s history is to get rid of candidates. That is how he started his career. Obama dug up dirt on his opponents to advance his career. Obama anonymously hit John Edwards with the haircut story and anonymously smeared Bill Clinton about 9/11 and Hillary Clinton as the “Senator from Punjab”.
It was also the Barack Obama thugs who tried to get rid of Joe Sestak. Barack Obama thugs tried to get rid of Andrew Romanoff, Barack Obama thugs tried to get rid of David Paterson. Now Obama thugs want to get rid of Kendrick Meek.
Okay, Friday night at the movies.
This one is a TV movie. I didn't know that. It was made by ABC Films which also made "They Shoot Horses Don't They?" but that film played at the movies. This one was for TV. "The Girl Most Likely To . . ."
This is a very funny movie.
It was written by Joan Rivers. And I think it was made in 1973.
Ed Asner plays an important role (and is very good in it). Other people I recognized were Larry Wilcox (blond guy from "Chips"), Gopher from "The Love Boat" and someone else that I knew from many things but couldn't pin down to one.
Not the star. The star is Stockard Channing who you should know from "Grease" (the one and only Rizzo), "The West Wing," "First Wives Club" (Cynthia who kills herself at the start of the movie), "Six Degrees of Seperation," and more.
She is always great and she makes the fim.
She plays a character who's down on herself, college student Miriam Knight who is forever switching colleges, trying to find somewhere to fit in.
So we join her at her latest college. She's got more pounds than we're familiar with and her hair is fly away and her eye brows need to be plucked. But she's not ugly or even unattractive. But on a campus with a bunch of ___, she's made to feel ugly.
Especially by Moose and Heidi. She rooms with the vain Heidi. She tutors the vain Moose.
Why does she tutor Moose?
They're taking a drama class together.
He makes a lame joke about Oedipus Rex (something like, "Isn't that about the due who has something wrong with his eyes.") and then he repeats it because he thinks it's funny. It wasn't. So the teacher -- Mr. Howell from "Gilligan's Island"! -- that's the one I couldn't remember that I've seen everywhere -- calls on Miriam and asks her the point of the story. She says, "Easy, a guy can't kiss his mother on the lips and get away with it." That actually was funny.
And Miriam's just not appreciated. Everyone makes fun of her. She gets the lead in the school play and invites this dork her parents plan for her to marry. She's allergic to roses as Heidi knows. Miriam is giving a great performance and everyone is just caught up in it but then she opens a box and there are roses. She starts sneezing and loses the audience completely. Even the dork is heckling her.
She ends up in an accident and wrapped in bandages, unable to eat or anything. When they take the bandages off, she's the Stockard we're used to seeing.
And she ends up getting her revenge.
That's all I'll tell. That's only about half of the movie.
It's so funny. Stockard is so funny. The whole movie is.
Going out with C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
