GETTING OFF ON A RANT

Dennis Miller has become more political than a Kennedy family picnic since getting kicked off Monday Night Football. His WSJ op-ed on this morning is a classic:

Well, Jerry Springer is mulling over a run for the Senate and John Adams is no doubt turning in his grave so furiously that if we could just hook up a turbine power cable to his headstone we would probably solve all our energy woes.

It’s no secret that the gene pool, in addition to being a tad brackish as of late, is also so shallow now there doesn’t even need to be a lifeguard on duty. Springer has stood astride that pool like a latter day Colossus Ignoramus of Rhodes for well over a decade now.

Now that’s not to say I don’t periodically find the “The Jerry Springer Show” intellectually stimulating. Indeed, how many times have I been walking through the parking lot of a laundromat and seen two obese women in halter tops slap fighting and thought, Wow . . . I wonder what the back story is on that?

Indeed.
