Artie Lange Rapes Joe Buck, Apology Unlikely

What’s in a word?

The New York Times does a great job analyzing Artie Lange’s hijack of Joe Buck’s premier on HBO as he took over Costas Live:

Michael Irvin, in the audience after being part of a segment with Bengals receiver Chad Johnson following the Favre interview, could only laugh at the spectacle.

“It’s refreshing to see white-on-white crime,” he said.

Lange’s shtick, which will be dissected with Stern on Tuesday morning, will be compared — for the attention it has created — to last year’s confrontation over blogging on “Costas Now” between the writer Buzz Bissinger and Will Leitch, then of Deadspin.

Bissinger kept erupting, creating a fascinating tableau of righteous anger.

But the Lange incident — which benefited from the artistic freedom that HBO provides — was not about any particular issue; it was about Lange’s decision that the stage was his to seize. Buck said: “It’s an unfortunate thing that happened. But it’s live. If it were taped, nobody would have seen it.”

Look, sometimes a rape victim suffers from Stockholm Syndrome.  We should all pray for Joe Buck, but I have a feeling he’ll be begging for Lange’s return.  It’s a vicious cycle these talk show hosts go through.

Res Ipsa Loquitor Chowderheads. WARNING: THIS SHOW WILL CONTAIN EXPLICIT LANGUAGE ANS VULGAR SEXUAL INNUENDO IS LIKELY (ACTUALLY, IT PROBABLY WON’T BE INNUENDO IF I MAKE IT WITH A POLAR BEAR I’VE TRAINED TO LOVE ME FOR WHO I AM). Toddlers should listen without their parent’s consent. Comedy has been put under a microscope unfairly as of late, and, it’s a good time to mark down DNR on the toe-tag of the P.C. Police. Or, have them do comedy themselves.

Michael Steele Admits To Being A Socialist

Socialists Welcome Michael Steele To The Party

Socialists Welcome Michael Steele To The Party

On Sunday’s Meet The Press With David Gregory, Michael Steele was asked how he felt about the R.N.C. considering a motion to rename The Democratic Party to “Something, Something, Socialist Party.”  In a dramatic turn of events from his prior statements concerning Socialism, Steele remained consistent and tried to cast a wide net  encompassing a  philosophy espousing many viewpoints.  Surely that is not The Republican Party I know.

The Grand Old As Dirt Party Chairman rebuked Republicans for “name-calling” in this regard, but did comment on  Tim Kaine having a “freakish eyebrow.”  Like Michael Jackson avoiding his father’s punches, Steele moonwalked away from Dick Cheney’s comments concerning his preference for having Rush Limbaugh in the party over Colin Powel.

While Steele might be having a hard time pitching a tent, clearly that is not the only problem of impotence the Republicans have.  The constant infighting being aired for all to see is basically free advertising for Viagra or for more favorable writing on the hate mongering bafoon, Ms. Califonia, who is moving on to working with the blind.

Clearly, Michael Steele’s breaking ranks with  Cheney, Limbaugh, Palin, and other R.N.C. leaders means he is against them.

Ergot, Michael Steele is a Jane Fonda dry-humping, gay, commie, liberal, Gulag-dwelling, terrorist-loving, scumbag Socialist.

Like me.

    1. Great show Cube!

Holy Shit!  Holy Shit!  Holy Shit!  Holy Shit!

Well.  Now I know what exactly what it feels like to scrape my testicles against a cheese-grater.  What do they call that party?

So like, here’s my own, very relevant, take:  Apparently Max Blumenthal and John Ziegler are not going back to Cali to have a gay marriage and overturn Prop 8.

Who gets caught in the crossfire?  Me.  Cube.  An inanimate object floating around cyberspace!  Who’s this about?  Me.  That’s who.  Who do I trust? Me!  Who I trust, is my own business!

But I distress

The first hour was great.  Probably the best first hour in the annals of tube show history.  Max was insightful on a host of issues.  Specifically, I very much enjoyed listening to his analysis about some dude with a Hummer named, “WAR,” and his bestest friend Sarah Palin.

Max has an uncanny ability to analyze the political calculus and support his arguments with facts and a style that is persuasive.  He also has the uncanny ability to stick his middle finger up in the air at my upcoming guest.
