I’ve never really paid any attention to NBC’s David Gregory; you probably haven’t either. Maybe that’s why Douchebag (my new name for him) felt the need to defend Ann Coulter’s third grade-level personal attacks. Hey, that whole saying-crazy-shit-to-get-attention thing works for Bill O’Reilly (and Coulter too, of course).
Here’s what I would do in response to someone like Gregory if I was to get on one of those shows (’cause, you know, that’s likely to happen and all): I’d look at him and say in a calm voice, “I hope your wife gets hit by a bus today, David.”
He’s go fucking ballistic, of course and say, “HOW CAN YOU SAY SOMETHING LIKE THAT??”
Then I’d say, “If you strip away the inflammatory rhetoric against your wife, what I was saying was that I disagree with you, David.”
American TV news ain’t “news” in any real sense. It’s like a carnival freak show…except that the carnival freak show never pretended to be anything but a freak show.
