Audio- Fox's Mike Gallagher Tells Chris Wallace To "Throw A Bucket Of Water" On Pelosi And "See What Happens"


I once spent alot of very expensive cell phone minutes waiting on hold to speak to Gallagher. I've never called into a radio talk show before but he was ranting and raving about how all the housekeepers (don't think he called them that) don't speak English and that he wasn't leaving tips unless they spoke English and why in the WORLD are they taking Real "Muricans jobs? I was lived. My folks came over from Ireland and Poland by way of South America in 1960. When they got here the only jobs that were available to them were manual labor picking apples and cherries on a farm in Michigan. My mom spoke 5 languages (including English with an accent), my Dad 3 (including English with a HEAVY accent). That. Was. All. That. Was Available.

Manual labor and unskilled work is the stepping stone for those who don't speak English. How do you get instructions from a boss if you don't speak English? You don't unless the the boss knows Spanish, which is more common now but still is a sticking point. If you're hired as unskilled it's pretty clear what you need to know, so no special instructions need apply and if they do you can work it out. I wonder what kind of jobs Mr Gallagher's forebears worked when they first got here?

Sorry, I tend to get worked up over that second rate piece of slime. Via.


Tea party to Christine "The Witch" O'Donnell: You're melting. Buh-bye now.


Poor Christine O'Donnell, just like the Wicked Witch in The Wizard of Oz, she's slo-mo melting before our very eyes. Well, maybe not so slo-mo. Recently, she managed to attract only 5 (give or take... okay, take) people to her book signing. Then she butt-tweeted, although the resulting gibberish made a lot more sense than her usual tweets.

Now the tea party is turning on her. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that she is no longer welcome at a weekend event in Iowa that she was supposed to attend with her 2010 BFF, Sarah Palin. The Former-Half Gov won't have to share the spotlight, because they dropped Christine like a hot corn dog.

First the head tea bagger said there was an open slot, but before Christine could say, "I'm you," he said, oops, no there wasn't.

But that wasn't exactly what he meant:

Tea Party of America’s cofounder, Charlie Gruschow, said the group withdrew Ms. O’Donnell’s after receiving numerous “emails from a lot of tea party folks that were very disappointed that she would be speaking.”

“We decided not to have her speak,” Mr. Gruschow said. “We felt it was in the best interest of the movement.”

At least it saved her the trouble of walking out on them.


Christine O'Donnell's ad man tries to explain "I am not a witch, I am you" spots


Christine O'Donnell's ad guy was the same genius who was behind Carly Fiorina's "Demon Sheep" ad. He can explain and rationalize all he wants, but his mission was not accomplished. The witch meme persisted:

"She was the butt of every joke, every late night comedian, " [Fred] Davis said of O'Donnell.

Sorry for interrupting, Fred, but pssst! She still is.

Please go on:

"And so with that in place, she's down 20 points in the polls, roughly, at that time. I don't see that you have a choice; you have to address it. Why ignore it completely?"

Fred might want to check out the latest post-debate reaction.

And by the way, when a Christine O'Donnell witch doll makes its way into the market place (yours for only $39.95!), it's time to admit ad remorse fail.

And what did the Covenator herself have to say about it?

"She said I'm so sick of the witch thing I'd like to put it behind me, and I said this is the way to put it behind you," Davis said.

Well, he got one buzz word right: Behind.
