I Really Shouldn't Watch So Much TV

 
On Wednesday's episode of "Hardball", P.J. O'Rourke called President Obama "pink and squishy". I took particular umbrage at this statement. I am rather fond of pink and squishy.

"Pink and Squishy?" I so don't want to know the context here... though it does add a whole new meaning to the description "brain-dead." Can we pull the plug and turn off life support now?

Normally, I enjoy hearing and reading O'Rourke but not having seen this exchange myself I will reserve judgement until--screw it. What the hell is wrong with him?

Pink and squishy--Let me get my Republicon Decoder ring out----Pink--You get quadruple points for that one. It is at once, Womanly, Gay, Communist {pinko} and weak.

Squishy--Not firm, Flaccid, impotent, indecisive.

Okay, but you know it makes my head hurt to use the stupid filter to see the world in such terms. I like your interpretation better Dr Zaius.

Brain! But then with the rampant anti-intellectualism on that side of the fence, I don't act surprised. In fact I am more surprised by the fact that these people don't try and out do each other in acts of public-piety by sticking screwdrivers up their noses and wiggling it around a lot.

Cheap Lobotomies. That'll show us LOL

I'm old enough to remember when PJO was funny. Wow, that's dating myself.

Yeah, O'ROurke was once amusing. I think that was before he realized what a heap of stinking shit he'd aligned himself with.

Sometimes I have to watch thirty whole seconds of Chris Matthews while waiting for Keith Olbermann to come on. Those thirty seconds always feel like too much TV.

Thanks to seeing eye chick, I don't have to leave a comment.

Hey, if it's good enough for Zombie-Americans, it's good for everyone.

Poor PJ. He lacks pink and squishy brain matter much to his own detriment. The content of his skull is obviously a puss yellow liquid.

Lockwood: As the GOP life support is corporate funded, we may have to beat them into submission...

Bubs: Indeed! Well said. ;o)

Zirgar: He was certainly unusually feisty during this exchange. I'm not sure why, except perhaps that he was up against Howard Dean...

Seeing Eye Chick: Ha! Very well put, excellent work. I can't top that, Seeing Eye Chick! Although I do think that I should be in charge of all lobotomies, as I have some experience in these matters... ;o)

Tengrain: He was on Bill Maher not that long age and was charming and interesting. I don't know who spiked his Cream O' Wheat that day, but he was certainly on a tear.

Kenmeer Livermaile: Strange bedfellows make for odd behavior, I guess. ;o)

Steve: I wish it were, Steve! But alas, that is really what he said.

Matty Boy: Chris Matthews can be pretty good sometimes. He is usually just another annoying Republican and overly cloying. Sometimes his guests are pretty good.

Übermilf: She said it very well, didn't she? :o)

Randal Graves: That's the spirit! Lobotomies for everybody! :o)

DailyAblutions: Indeed! With turpentine sauce!

Comrade Kevin: I know. :o(

Susan: Yes, but he also said, "If you wrong us, shall we not revenge?" which is more to my liking... ;o)

Unlike black and crumbling like his liver. I used to think O'Rourke just said his stupidity cause of his obvious alcohol issues but it seems his brain has problems too.

Is no one else concerned with the Hannibal Lectorness of that brain served up on a bed of rose petals?

I'm just glad I don't have cable these days,

The Hermit: Well, considering the color of his liver it seems clear now why his bile is so dark.

Freida Bee, MD: Don't be silly. Brains are my meat and potatoes! and Hannibal Lector is just misunderstood.
