« Secret Service Raids Home of Twitter User for... Critical Tweets About Obama? | Main | Chris Hayes: Gee, I'm Awfully Sorry I Did a Whole Segment on the Republican Racist Governor George Wallace Without Checking to See if He Was Actually a Republican »
June 12, 2013


Very astute, very intellectual, very low-rated MSNBC host Chris Hayes attempts to identify the political party of racist governor George Wallace, fails.

But did he? It's the narrative his audience wants. A narrative with no troublesome parts or Proud Nails. Something simple and smooth that goes down the throat easily, like baby food or the pablum they make to feed people who can't chew their food.

One of the most inspirational, wonderful stories you'll read this week: Government austerity measures, compelled by creditors demanding cuts be made to the budget, force Greece to shut down its state-run TV and radio ventures, calling them "a haven of waste."

I had a chuckle that the story noting that riot police had been summoned to quell any violence and disorder occasioned by the shut-down. But there was none to quell.

Former sports anchor and current conservative Ron Futrell heckles Bill Maher at one of his stupid Clapping Therapy concerts.

Futrell, an outspoken conservative known for his Twitter rants, told the Review-Journal he was offended that Maher mocked special- needs individuals by using the “r word” against Sarah Palin’s special-needs son.

“I’ve got a son with special needs,” Futrell said. “It didn’t surprise me that Maher said it. It surprised me that a lot of people laughed at that joke.”


Futrell, a former sports anchor and daytime anchor at ABC affiliate KTNV-TV, Channel 13, before he was fired in 2008, chided Maher for a joke about Halliburton, the oil field services giant.

“Halliburton? It’s 2013,” Futrell said several times, until he got Maher’s attention.


When Futrell continued to react out loud, the audience member went to get security as Futrell started shouting, “Who’s the president? Who’s the president?”

Futrell said he agreed to leave.

He didn’t consider it as heckling, he said.

“I saw it as commentary. I went on an LDS mission to Ireland. I know heckling.”

Well I actually do think it's heckling but in the words of every judge on Law & Order, "I'll allow it."

Below: A kitten with two heads was born. Actually it's more like "two faces," but I'll allow it.
