You Mean the Senile One?
Breaking Oscar-related news! If you’re in New Jersey.
@karen marie: The Daily News has the Fuck Cablevision* card ABC showed before going dark.
(*Doesn’t say “Fuck Cablevision”.)
Oh, and for you fashionistas: It’s vewy, vewy wet in Southern California today. Which may make the Red Carpet more or less interesting, depending on your taste.
Also, too, whatever Steven F. Hayward is smoking, I want some.
@karen marie: You have to go to the very end for the payoff:
Steven F. Hayward is the F.K. Weyerhaeuser fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and the author of “The Age of Reagan: The Conservative Counter-Revolution, 1980-1989.” His most recent Outlook essay was “Is Conservatism Brain-Dead?” on Oct. 4.
AEI always gets the best weed.
@nojo: Yeah, they have little brown people grow it for them out back.
@nojo: Yeah, I saw that. Do you suppose AEI buys hallucinogens in bulk?
No kidding – I tracked down that “Is Conservatism Brain-dead?” article. Setting aside for the moment the fact that it should have been a one-word article (“Yes”), it also features a bit claiming that Rush’s command of satire is on par with Will Rogers. Well, that would be true if Rush was actually Al Franken in disguise, putting us on for the last few decades…
@al2o3cr: Or Andy Kaufman has been in very deep undercover.
I left this comment:
Reagan once regaled a bunch of print reporters with a tale of how he was on a camera crew that liberated one of the concentration camps. The truth, of course, is that he spent WWII making training films in California. In other words, he made the story up. I think that tells you what you need to know.
I would have told the story about how “family values” Nancy worked her way up in Hollywood by blowing studio execs (she was legendary) but they’d have deleted it.
@blogenfreude: Was she legendary for hurling herself schlongward with great frequency or for the expertise with which she applied the cocksucking?
At least Raygun served unlike the strangely bellicose Marion “John” Wayne whose RW wingnuttery pissed off many a veteran costar.
@FlyingChainSaw: She was known for giving the best head in Hollywood.
@Benedick be Jackpot: Yup. As evidenced in Peter Lawford’s autobiography:
Among his many acquaintances was young Nancy Davis. Just how well they were acquainted Patricia didn’t know until after Reagan was elected president. The Widow Lawford recalls, “Peter was watching the news right after Reagan was elected. He went over to the set, laughing and calling Mrs. Reagan a vulgar name. I was shocked and wanted to know what was bothering him. He laughed again and said that when she was single, Nancy Davis was known for giving the best head in Hollywood. Then Peter told of driving to the Phoenix area with Nancy and Bob Walker . Nancy would visit her parents, Dr. and Mrs. Loyal Davis, while Peter and Walker picked up girls at Arizona State University in Tempe, a Phoenix suburb. He claimed that she entertained them orally on those trips, apparently playing with whichever man was not driving at the moment. I have no idea if Peter was telling the truth, though I have to assume he was because Peter was not one to gossip.”
@karen marie: On the other hand, if you’re in Sandy Eggo, you have to remember where ABC is. Presuming you haven’t watched it since the last Oscars.
(Er, except for a certain computer-animated Christmas special, of course.)
@blogenfreude: The angelic Grace Kelly, after marrying the Prince, is reputed to have said that she would never again have to suck a Jewish dick.
@nojo: Presuming you haven’t watched it since
the last Oscars Wide World of Sports.
