  • @markparton I was thinking exactly that. Got coffee and raided the chocolates. That should see me through the remaining two hours of work. in reply to markparton #
  • @morrison954 Welcome back Jason. I suppose the last two weeks were unlike any holiday you've had before. How are the dogs handling the bub? #
  • @markparton I should be able to handle that. How's the morning treating you today? in reply to markparton #
  • @markparton ouch…you need that coffee more than I do. Should I swing by the studio with a large cup of coffee after 7am when I leave work? in reply to markparton #
  • @morrison954 stamp duty: can we have installments for rego? I'm waiting to transfer to ACT rego in case I move to NSW and have to pay twice. #
  • @morrison954 If I could decide who gets the Gold Logie, I'd award it to @larryemdur. Larry can and does make any show fun. #
  • While my car is in for a service, I've decided to spend extra time on buses. Taking the bus I used to catch to college. #
  • My goodness! The old regulars aren't getting on this bus. I suppose the MyWay tickets don't allow them to cheat and get a cheap fare early. #
  • Just alighted from ACTION Bus 451 (Route 2) in Dickson. Bus is four minutes early. #
  • On board ACTION Bus 904 (Route 6, similar to old Route 35). A Renault PR100.2, my favourite bus. I'd love to buy one, but can't drive it. #
  • …not legally anyway. And I don't have room to park one. Oh well, it shall remain a dream for now. #
  • Oops, my mistake. Route 8 is the old Route 35. #
  • Stupid woman jumped out in front of the bus outside O'Connor Shops. Had to rush the milk home I guess. #
  • Alighted from bus 904 (Route 6) in Civic. Bus is two minutes early! #
  • Um, Al "Resist We Much" Sharpton??? MT @newsbusters: SNL Writer: @seanhannity 'Dumbest Person Ever Paid to Speak on TV' #
  • Al Sharpton "Resist we much, and much we shall must" or something to that effect is the dumbest thing ever on TV. @seanhannity is insightful #
  • Going to pick my car up. Boarded ACTION Bus 878 (Route 2) on Ainslie Ave. Bus is on time. #
  • Alighted from ACTION Bus 878 (Route 2) in Woden. Bus is five minutes early. #

Saturday Night Live writer calls Sean Hannity dumbest person on TV. Clearly he forgot Al Sharpton

Newsbusters’ Noel Sheppard has an interesting piece today about Jim Downey, one of the writers for Saturday Night Live, a long-running television comedy program which is somewhat noticeable for its left-wing bias, although I will credit the fact that it does take aim at people on the left every now and then as well, just not with the same vigour as it attacks figures on the right.

Noel was braver than I could ever be, and read an entire column in the New York Times. In said column, right near the end of it, Jim Downey made the following comment while discussing his plans to parody Sean Hannity:

I think I’m right in saying that he’s the dumbest person who’s ever been paid to speak on television.

Really? Sean Hannity dumb?? The Sean Hannity who manages to speak in full sentences for at least four hours each and every day throughout his radio and television shows, while constantly asking pertinent and probing questions about the issues of the day, and making insightful observations?

I’m sorry Mr. Downey, but you are wrong. There is no other way to put it. You might disagree with Sean, and many people do which is fine, but he is certainly not dumb. If you want to look at somebody who is dumb, how about the amazingly incoherent Al Sharpton.

“Resist we much”? The Dow went down by 630%??

After watching that and feeling my brain melt with every passing word, I feel obliged to provide you with some sanity. So, by way of comparison, here is the very intelligent and insightful Sean Hannity interviewing the also very intelligent and insightful Mark Levin on Sean’s TV show.

Now, isn’t that better? Makes you wonder what, if anything, was going through Jim Downey’s head when he made that stupid comment doesn’t it?

Robot Dinosaur!

Because sometimes I have a spare few minutes…


I’m thinking that this robotic dinosaur might need to make an appearance in the next season of Samuel In Dolgnwot which, by my calculations, is due next year.

If you weren’t here for the last season of Samuel In Dolgnwot and are wondering what form of insanity has befallen me, have a look at the last two seasons here.
