A Fate Worse Than Death

That was a real kick and good for laughs and lashings of the old ultraviolent.

It’s been a long time since we’ve listened to NPR — Cokie was still respectable, to give you a clue — but we still recognize Mara Liasson, and we’re sorry to hear that she’s been slumming at Fox News in a role only has-been Carter pollster Pat Caddell is fit to serve:

Executives at National Public Radio recently asked the network’s top political correspondent, Mara Liasson, to reconsider her regular appearances on Fox News because of what they perceived as the network’s political bias, two sources familiar with the effort said.

According to a source, Liasson was summoned in early October by NPR’s executive editor for news, Dick Meyer, and the network’s supervising senior Washington editor, Ron Elving. The NPR executives said they had concerns that Fox’s programming had grown more partisan, and they asked Liasson to spend 30 days watching the network.

You reach a point, if you’re a Daily Blogger, when you’ve exhausted all the go-to imagery. But then you realize: Fuck it. It works.

any bets?

TJ/Everybody watch Mr. ‘Catt’s TV special Prep and Landing tomorrow night, please. ABC, 8:30.

Thank you for your patronage.

@Tommmcatt is hunkered down in the trenches: More info. What time? Left time or real time? I will so tivo his ass. Wait. It’s not a Sport thing is it? Though I would totally Sport M. Catt in any kind of game. Let’s get sweaty!!

Wait. What?


Hands off my boy, limey.

Not a sports thing, love. It will air on ABC at 8:30 on both coasts tomorrow. It is a very amusing animated Christmas special.

@Tommmcatt is hunkered down in the trenches: You forgot the geek pitch: music by Michael Giacchino, who scored Star Trek.

Fuck it. NPR thinks it has more cred than it does. I quit listening to them when they rolled over for the war. This crap only plays into the culture wars sideshow.

Fun Fact: Mr. Intellectual NPR Guy Ira Glass was executive producer of the holiday movie “Unaccompanied Minors.” Really – imdb it.

The RMLs will be tuned into Mr Catt’s special as we trim our tree, warm from the teeth of the oncoming winter storm.

@redmanlaw: warm from the teeth of the oncoming winter storm.

It’s been an interesting break from our usual December barefoot weather, but you can have it.

@Tommmcatt is hunkered down in the trenches: I have book club starting at 7, but perhaps I can convince the host to tune in.
