Jim Bob Duggar: If a tree falls without sending out a press release, does anyone hear it?

Posted By on Wed, May 28, 2008 at 12:43 AM

Sitting in doctor’s office today, I was thumbing through a copy of People magazine, and came across an item about Michelle Duggar expecting the couple’s 18th child.

Jim Bob, whose media contact list (including the liberal media) must surely reach half-way to the moon, is no doubt  expecting the TV camera crews to descend once more upon the little home for yet another documentary on the Science Channel, another smiling segment on the nightly news (local and national) as soon as he hits the “send” message within seconds after the baby is born.

The happiest story I have seen so far on the impending birth is on the website of the infamous David Duke:

“A Happy Mother’s Day Story: White Family expecting their 18th Child!”

Turns out that quite a lot of people who think white people are pretty darned wonderful think the Duggars are national heroes. Wonder why the Science Channel or even Channel 29 leaves out that part of the story?

Coming soon - Road Rage, the SUV

Saw a car today with the odd name of “Avalanche.”

Why would you name a vehicle after something that, well, crashes around your ears? Why would you buy one? Just trying to beat the odds?

What’s next in automobile names?

Titanic?

Be Careful What you Pray for Department

 true story:

When I was a young lad - 18? 23?

No, about 6, I think - I prayed to God that one day I might have my own TV show. I should have been more specific in my prayer. I should have asked for a TV show that included a paycheck . . .

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
