NFL Refs Are More Union Thuggery ► Chow Mein and Bolling 4

I'll bet Bully Boy Bolling was on his couch cursing out the Scab Refs on Monday night. I also bet Bolling was secretly lauding the return of the Union Refs last night. However, to hear Bullshit Bolling talk of it, all NFL Union Refs are just another example of Union Thuggery:

If there's one thing Bully Boy Bolling knows all about, it's thuggery. He's the biggest thug on tee vee.

Chow Mein and Bolling 3 ► Tweet Du Jour

Bully Boy Bolling clearly has a mission: To save 'Merka from the Socialist Hoards. That's not Fair and Balanced, but then Fox "News" never was, never will be.

I can't be everywhere. If you see Bully Boy Bolling do something funny, or egregious, or egregiously funny, please let me know.

Chow Mein and Bolling #2 ► Warns Against 'Wag The Dog' Scenario

No sooner do I start a new series dedicated to Eric Bolling stupidity, than up pops Bully Boy Bolling with something profoundly stupid. True, it's not roll-down-windows-on-airplane stupid, but you run on the candidate you have, not on the one you wish you had, Bully Boy.

Inaugural Post of New Series ► Chow Mein and Bolling

I've been following Bully Boy Bolling for quite a while. I was there to review The Five on his very first The Five show. I stand by everything I wrote. It's still the worst show on tee vee. "Some people say" that it beats all other cable news shows in the universe. "Some people say" that makes my assessment wrong then and doubly wrong now.

That's why the food at McDonald's is way better better than the food at Lutèce. That's how McDonald's put Lutèce out of business, right?

The Fox "News" Spin Cycle ► Episode Eighteen

Bizarro is owned by DC Comics
Time to delve back into Bizarro World, aka Fox "News" for another look at what's wrong with this world. This was the week where Mendacious Mitt Romney stumbled badly. He was just coming off his idiotic comments about Libya, when he mixed up the timeline and then blamed President Obama for siding with the terrorists. People were still complaining about that when a secretly recorded tape was released, in which Mittens wrote off 47% of the country as shiftless, lazy moochers who he had already written off. Consequently, the Fox "News" Spin Cycle went into overdrive, WHITEwashing the record for Mitty, hoping none of its brain dead viewers would turn on any other channels and learn the truth. Which is why this series exists.

BTW: I am still trying to find a single tweet, or facebook update, from Fox "News" that is positive to President Obama or, at the very least, neutral. I think I might be wasting my time. What do you think?

Another Magical Tee Vee Moment ► Richard Nixon's Checkers Speech

Jackie Gleason keeping Richard Nixon from falling in the
drink in Inverrary, Florida, a few miles from where I live.
Dateline September 23, 1952 - Under fire for taking money from his private backers to pay expenses, Richard Nixon went on national tee vee and delivered what has come to be known as The Checkers Speech.

At the time he was Senator Richard Nixon, having won over Helen Gahagan Douglas in 1950 after accusing her of being a Communist, who was "pink right down to her underpants." Tapped to be General Dwight D. Eisenhower's vice presidential running mate, Nixon ran into trouble two months later when the press learned of a fund that 'topped off' Nixon's salary of $12,500 (which was about $150,000 in 2009 dollars, according to the WikiWackyWoo). As demands grew for Nixon to resign from the ticket and his senate seat, Eisenhower started to distance himself from the party's GOP pick. To save his position on the GOP ticket, not to mention his seat in the Senate, Nixon convinced Ike to allow him to go on tee vee and make his case directly to the 'Merkin people. However, Nixon wanted Eisenhower to make a decision on whether to keep him on the ticket immediately after the broadcast. Eisenhower wouldn't agree to that, so Nixon famously said to the General who saved Europe for democracy, "[G]eneral, there comes a time in matters like this when you've either got to shit or get off the pot." Even at that, Eisenhower said it would take a few days to determine which way the wind was blowing.
