I’m feeling vaguely like Walter Winchell today. Winchell was the political/gossip columnist and radio talking head who was very powerful during the Thirties and Forties. He had both FDR and J Edgar Heehaw (aka Hoover aka the G-man in a G-string) leaking juicy stories to him. Me I have no power and Deep Blog doesn’t have access to FBI files. I would however be willing to emulate Winchell and narrate episodes of a remake of “The Untouchables.” I don’t have his staccato machine gun delivery but I could work on it…
Anyway I was scrolling the Daily Kos this morning and came upon a post about of all things a story from the supermarket tabloid the Globe. I was at the store yesterday and the line was so short that I didn’t have time to scan the tabs for funny tidbits. The Globe claims that Laura Bush is pissed off at President Beavis because he’s drinkin’ again and foolin’ around with Condi (Large Scary Teeth) Rice; talk about white on rice. The tabloids will usually print anything about anybody and are frequently wrong BUT the Globe did get the Gary Hart President Elvis and Jesse Jackson sex stories right. So who the hell knows?
Below is the front page of the Globe. I like how Laura-Dubya-n-Condi are linked to the dread Angelina Jolie and Scott Fricking Peterson:
