Gregalogue About The "Pat Tillman Political Assassination" Tonight
Maybe No Show Tonight Anyway, Due To Minneapolis Bridge Collapse

I tipped Levy about this yesterday. He hadn't heard about it. I guess it's because it doesn't come up when you go a Google-news search for "strippers" and "coochie."

Anyway, Gutfeld will be doing his "Gut Feeling" or whatever it's called on the show tonight about it.

Levy will toss out an AoSHQ shout-out in the middle of the show, perhaps citing a commenter's observation that if Tillman was killed to prevent his meeting with Noam Chomsky, why not just cut out the middleman and increase your profit by killing Noam Chomsky?

On the other hand, he may be citing me for something I said in chat which was funny there but I wouldn't be happy to see myself quoted as saying. Basically, I started a riff where I was saying, "Hey, Strength From Above, Trust From Below, right? Why mess with a winning formula? If Dick Cheney ordered him killed, well, I'm sure he had his reasons, and it is simply unamerican to question what those reasons might be. If we can't trust the government murder squads, who can we trust?" And that sort of thing.

That sort of ironic posturing as the sort of Rah-Rah Kill 'Em All Don't Question Your Beloved Leaders liberals imagine conservatives to be. You know. The shit we do here day-in day-out.

Alas, unless he was kidding, I think he's going to quote a shorter version of that, absent all the context, and I think it's going to come across as callous and go over like a lead zeppelin. And he's not answering emails (prepping for the show I imagine).

Kinda worried about this. I don't think a lot of viewers are going to get I meant to lampoon the latest deranged conspiracy theory (but I repeat myself) from the unhinged left (but I repeat myself anew). I think they'll just think, "This dick Ace of Spades just mocked the death of a war hero."

And now... Levy gets back to me, and says he was thinking the same thing, and will drop it.


No shout out, plus

I just revealed a private joke I wasn't particularly comfortable about seeing made public.


I'm such a putz.

And Now Probably No New Show Anyway: The horrible bridge collapse in Minneapolis is blowing out the schedule at Fox as Shep continues his show into O'Reilly's slot and I think the Red Eye studio and crew are being used for that.

No print story on the collapse yet, but Shep Smith is saying it's horrible, and at least 20 cars were caught in it.
