Today was BEAUTIFUL on Fox News Sunday. Brit Hume, as usual outshone the rest of the panel. Juan Williams (the lib on the panel, in case you didn’t know), regularly gets spanked by Brit. Today even though he didn’t say it, I think Juan was cow-towed by Brit’s obvious command of the English language. I have to admit, even I had to get out the dictionary to understand some of Brit’s near-soliloquy of words! Watch and be amazed.
Brit Hume: The Kennedys and the Schumers and the others came back to these things again, and again and again, almost in the manner of grand jury questioning; it went nowhere. There was no doubt what they were trying to do; they were trying to tar the guy, and it was pretty bad news.
Mara Liason: This whole hearing shows that â€œelections matter.â€
Bill Kristol: Ted Kennedy in the NYTs today is complaining about the politicization of the judicial nomination process. The Ted Kennedy who, 20 years ago, launched the single most outrageous smear in modern American politics against Judge Robert Bork, when he said that Robert Bork’s America would be one one of back-alley abortions, racial discrimination and all that. I thought it was a great week and was even more cheered up to red Ted Kennedy being depressed in the NYTs
Hey, gang.. I’ve finally passed into the world of legitimacy of my own formal website. Please visit me at http://MsUnderestimated.com. I look forward to seeing you there! I now have the bandwidth, server capacity, etc., that I’m going to be able to video blog! Have patience, please, as I learn this new “Moveable Type” format. I look forward to seeing you all there, and please feel free to give me feedback (and help!) on my new site!I have to give credit, where credit is due. Gribbit has helped me A LOT along the way, and is the main designer on my new site. He’s had to lovingly coax me along the way, sometimes twisting my arm a bit (LOL), but all the same, I couldn’t have dont it without him.
Love to all of you, and see you there! ……..Ms. U.
Okay, I thought I’d seen/heard it all. Today in the Atlanta Journal Constitution, in the “Arts & Books” section, they’re promoting a couple of plays that are “political button pushers.” After you read this article, I think you may come up with a different description of the play I’m most disturbed by: “Love, Jerry.”
In the AJC’s article entitled “You got tickets for WHAT?” the writer, Wendell Brock, tells about the pivotal points, questions and concerns about “Love, Jerry.”
“LOVE JERRY” (the Playwright)
Megan Gogerty. 31. Iowa-born, Los Angeles-based Gogerty studied playwriting at the University of Texas. Her 10-minute play “Rumple Schmumple” was produced in 2004 by Dad’s Garage.
Gogerty was inspired by the true-life story of a 26-year-old Iowa man who accidentally showed tapes of himself molesting neighborhood children to his girlfriend. The guy pleaded for help but was arrested: “I hear this story, and I think this guy’s life is over.”
HOW IT EVOLVED
Gogerty interviewed sex-offender therapists and went to group sessions. She eventually created a character named Jerry, who was molested by his uncle and ends up abusing his own nephew. “Love Jerry” was a finalist in the Alliance Theatre’s 2005 Kendeda Graduate Playwriting Competition.
