Media Unhinged


Okay, so how ridiculous can the media get? I was literally laughing today during the news conference. The reporters were hyper-ventilating asking Scott McClellan questions about the accidental shooting. Was it a slow news day or why are we freaking out about something like this? They kept asking why there was a delay in getting the story to them. And someone even ridiculously asked if Cheney was going to resign. Give me a break!! How ludicrous is this?

Also, I miss Ari Fleischer. He was so good at being the White House spokesman. He was charming and funny and he put the media in their place. Scott McClellan always looks like a deer caught in the headlights. He's not up for the job. To be honest, do you know who I would love? Donald Rumsfeld for White House spokesman. I love how he handles the media. Saturday Night Live did a skit once entitled: Donald Rumsfeld Holds a Press Conference and it was hilarious.

Hat tip to Lucianne.com for the great picture.

That mosaic photo rules!

And yes, Scott McClellan is like a punching bag at these press conferences. Poor guy. Some of those prima donnas just need a good ass-kicking. Since they'd like to know the scoop so badly in zero-time, maybe they'd like to go out hunting with Cheney next time?

Check out the whackos over at Daily Kos:

Revka said...

Chatter, you have to read Wordsmiths' link... I did, and it is unbelievable where these libs are taking it.. It is total tabloid nonsense..

The more I think about this war between the libs and Bush, the more i think it is a necessity to keep blogging and to keep exposing their idiocy.. And sometimes it sure can be fun!!!

Ok. look for a rare biting satire over at my place in the next couple of days.

I feel the same wishing for Ari Fleischer. When it was on yesterday, a friend called from AL and I could not listen...was upset too.

Been laughing myself...fell asleep last night before Leno..but this a.m. on FoxNFriends...They showed Leno acting like he had a shotgun..and reloading screaming out...DOES ANYONE ELSE DISAGREE about the WIRETAPPING...LOL-LOL-LOL!!

The Press Corp is so mad it is hilarious...and esp. the owner giving the story to the local paper. HAHAHAHA!! I heard that ridiculous question about the resignation. Get REAL..(LOL) I wish he would have PEPPERED some of the PRESS!!! (LOL)

OH YEAH, LOVE THAT PHOTO!!! LOL
Happy Valentine's Day to you...hope it is awesome...as I know it will be. (smiling)

James Manning said...

oh come on guys. why are you all so sensetive? I'm glad the guy survived but you had to know that Cheney was going to become the butt of a lot of jokes. It's just the way it is.

Wordsmith: I loved this line :-): "Some of those prima donnas just need a good ass-kicking."

I cannot believe the Daily Kos link. I've heard they were left wing whackos but that is an understatement.

Revka: Agreed!!

Mark: I'll check it out.

Suzie: I actually thought about watching Leno and Letterman last night just to see what they said. I knew it would be funny and that clip is hilarious.

Happy Valentine's Day to you too!! My husband got me season 4 of 24 and we are going to Outback Steakhouse.

James: Like I said I was wanting to watch Leno make jokes about it. But you have to admit the media is overreacting. That was my point.

TexasFred said...

OK, it's been needing said, and somebody has GOT to say it...

Might as well be me....

Don't mess with Dick...

Little Miss Chatterbox said...

Texas Fred: I love that :-). Good point!!

Gayle said...

Of course they will make jokes about it. Most commedians like Leno will make jokes about people on both sides, because that's what they do. It's the News Media that's become ridiculous. It's like this is the biggest, most important scoop of their lives... and it was an accident.

You are exactly right, lmc.

James Manning said...

Oh, I wrote a little poem that "some" of you might enjoy.

Patrick Joubert Conlon said...

That collage is great. I like McClellan. His innocent and simple manner makes the press corp look like a school of sharks.

Little Miss Chatterbox said...

Gayle: I agree!

James: I checked it out. LOL

Patrick: You make an excellent point.

Lone Pony said...

My kids asked me today if he was going to be arrested. (Their parents told them he should be.) Sheesh

stuffle said...

Yeah, it is kinda funny seeing the both the MSM and some Democrats get all apoplectic over not being told right away.

The whole resignation question is just stupid, too...

I like the graphic. Very funny!

To Everyone: I am in the midst of switching to Haloscan. Please post comments on there. Right now I'm moving all the comments from blogger to there and then I will completely get rid of blogger comments. Thanks!!

Cabe said...

Ari was one of my heros. He was clear, and perfectly understandable.

Good decision in switching to Haloscan...there is a socialist pedophile running around.
