Coody War Room: Quick, find a Famous Person! Somebody! Anybody!

Posted By on Sun, Aug 3, 2008 at 10:32 AM

One can only imagine the deep panic in the bowels of the Coody campaign this morning when the letter from Miller Williams in the Northwest Arkansas Times appeared, endorsing Lioneld Jordan for mayor.  The hunt will be on for someone well-known to endorse Dan, and quickly.

Is Johnny Ross available? Now that he’s not doing the Take Two Video ads, he’s probably got some free time.

At the very least, someone will be dusting off those “Dan Coody supports the arts, and we LOVE him!” TV ads pretty soon, so they can be run again this year.

Get this man some sun screen!

Did Bradley R.  Gitz actually try to compare George Bush to Batman this morning, in his column in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette? This from the guy who tried to compare the Lord of the Rings trilogy to the war on terror.

Well, as opposed to George Bush, Batman actually gets the job done - and he doesn’t try to shift the blame to others when he screws the pooch.

I stopped believing news people were especially brilliant a whole long time ago

On the weekends, occasionally I flip to the 24 cable “News” stations to see what is going on in the world - an often frustrating hunt, believe me.

MSNBC is all prison shows (Charlie Manson wants to eat your family), FOX is FOX (Obama wants to eat your family), and a long time ago I realized that CNN and Headline News anchors are just Leslee Wrights with slightly better resumes, giggling their way through the news.

The BBC has a 24 news service available in this country; wouldn’t it be nice if Cox carried it?

A while back a British correspondent was on "The Daily Show." When Jon Stewart asked her how she viewed American news, her reply ran along the line of:

“If I had to watch American news I’d shoot myself in the head.”

Yeah - especially on the weekend.

It is not necessary to imagine the world ending in fire or ice. There are two other possibilities: one is paper work, and the other is nostalgia. - Frank Zappa
