This scene might as well have been cribbed from an actual pitch session, though if it had we’d be awaiting the release of “Cleaver VII: Revenge of the Claw.”
This story is uncomfortable but convincingly sourced. It merits examination. I hope it’s legitimately debunked.
If you’re reading this through a partisan lens, please refrain from defending Fox’s decision to focus on Sarah Palin’s debut at the expense of reporting on the crisis in Haiti. Those who confuse propaganda with journalism should pay a visit to Caracas or Beijing.
While dinner table conversations written for TV and the movies rarely ring true, this one sure does. It doesn’t hurt to have Edie Falco delivering your dialogue. I ain’t one for hyperbole, but it’s impossible to overrate her performance as Carmela, the “realest” character TV has ever produced. As a certain foil of the Malcontent would say, Falco is amazingly amazing.
Coakley bristles at the suggestion that, with so little time left, in an election with such high stakes, she is being too passive.
“As opposed to standing outside Fenway Park? In the cold? Shaking hands?’’ she fires back, in an apparent reference to a Brown online video of him doing just that.
If you can’t win as a Democrat in Massachusetts you have no one to blame but yourself.
Someone in John Oxendine’s hunting party was “sprayed” in the face during a quail hunt Sunday, but don’t let the Dick Cheney aspect of this incident overwhelm the bigger news.
Oxendine was hunting on land owned by a partnership that includes Delos “Dee” Yancey III, a Rome insurance executive.
Last May, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that State Mutual Life Insurance and Admiral Life Insurance Company of America, both headed by Yancey, funneled $120,000 through a series of political action committees to Oxendine’s campaign in 2008. Oxendine denied any knowledge of the donations and returned the money. The State Ethics Commission is investigating.
I’m sure Oxendine will deny any knowledge that he was hunting on land partly owned by an insurance executive.
The more people are exposed to Sarah Palin, the more they don’t want her to run for president, according to a CBS News poll.
