He says (courtesy of Watchdog’s Deena Winter):
Governor Ricketts is…
…a spoiled brat of a rich family…
…fixated on killing…
…has an obsession with killing…
…is a pathetic little man…
“Jack the Ripper is who I am not.”
And it’s the Governor who needs counseling?
The Dr. Ben Carson hip-hop radio ad is here.
And it’s not by some third-party group.
Ben Carson approves this message.
Here it is:
Not the way I would have gone.
But then, this campaign IS outside the box…
OK, Donald Trump is also going for radio (which has been criticized, but it doesn’t seem like the worst plan to me) and his ads are more “traditional”.
Hear them here:
You wonder if Trump is TRYING to sound more traditional, to buck the “entertainer” tag.
And maybe Carson is trying to buck the “low energy”, “boring” monikers.
And did you know we are only 5 days away from the next GOP debate?
The Third Darren?
The Daily Show’s feature on the Nebraska death penalty debate will be on at 10pm tonight.
Don’t feel bad if you miss it.
I never watched the Daily Show when John Stewart was hosting for the same reason I don’t watch Rachel Maddow on MSNBC. I know where they’re coming from and I know their plan.
Oh sure, it’s sometimes interesting to see what the opposition is doing, and each is arguably talented, but I have better things to do with my time and TIVO.
But there’s a new sheriff in town at The Daily Show now, bu the name of Trevor Noah. He’s South African.
And whomever thought it was a good idea to have him are likely the same types who thought Piers Morgan was a great idea for CNN.
But as Stewart proved, as long as you’re funny, people will pay attention.
Noah is not funny.
Well, forgive me if I don’t watch for 2 weeks to determine this to be the case. But I did watch his featurette against Jeff Kauffman and the Iowa GOP — and all of the GOP Presidential candidates.
At this point they’re not even pretending to be fair-minded, and are just in some sort of strange bashing mode, while trying to wink at their audience over and over.
I counted ONE time that a hint of a smile crossed my face on that piece (the “free cotton candy” line). After that, it was crickets on Leavenworth St.
And I have no doubt their “report” on Nebraska will be the same stuff.
