What Do You Expect From A Sh__head!

It must have been half-time of the Auburn v Oregon game last night when I stumbled into CNN's Anderson Cooper doing what our media often do when they need to fill up the time slot, which is to interview each other. Anderson Cooper was interviewing Bill Maher.  Cooper would ask the question fairly slowly and then Maher would do his silly thing, while Cooper was listening intently to the next question coming in over his earplug. I initially thought that Maher was doing a Beavis and Butthead routine.


Periodically he would look at Cooper hoping for some sort of response to the disjointed gibberish he was offering, but Cooper had that steely stare—at least I think it was steely, my TV is not high definition—you know, where his body language says "Hey, I'm the really smart neutral dude here asking these intelligent questions and listening to the unbelievable answers without giving any hints or help to the interviewee." Maybe it's the journalistic equivalent of the "1000 yard stare." Finally, someone in Maher's ear must have said "C'mon, say something funny about Sarah Palin, that's what you're paid to do." So he did and the skit was mercifully over. I thought it was funny. I don't know what steely-staring Anderson Cooper thought.


But the whole bit of disjointed rhetoric by Maher reminded me very much of the disjointed thoughts and separation from reality written down and videoed by the shooter in Tucson. Is that why there is so much consternation and cursing on the left? Maybe because this guy is exposing himself for what he is and it has an eerie likeness to what some of the stars on the Left do naturally. The only problem is that he, the shooter,  is being called mentally ill. Dr Phil, please call your office.


Perhaps that silly sheriff from Pima County who had nothing to do with the investigation and knew nothing about the case, should be extra careful when the shooter is transferred: first of all, it might be catching, and second, there might just be another Jack Ruby in the audience.

“In beholding old stones we may feel our anxieties about our achievements–and lack of them–slacken . . . Vast landscapes [and seascapes] can have an anxiety–reducing effect similar to ruins, for they are the representatives of infinite space, as ruins are the representatives of infinite time, against which our weak, short-lived bodies seem no less inconsequential than those of moths or spiders.”—Alain de Botton in Status Anxiety
