The American public, with a sizable assist from the navel-gazing media, is responsible for the virus knows as Kim Kardashian. I hate to contribute to the debasing of the culture by even acknowledging its existence but I can’t let this comment, contained within a letter to its “fans” regarding the demise of her 72-day marriage, pass:
I’m being honest here and I hope you respect my courage because this isn’t easy to go through.
You know, if Al-Qaeda had bombed the Kardashian wedding they’d probably win a lot of converts.
I’d suggest Occupying the Kardashians but that’s been done (by thousands of skeezy dudes).
The alleged “high-tech lynching” of Herman Cain has elicited an almost Clinton-ian response from the
GOP presidential candidate popular motivational speaker. The New York Times chronicles his ever-shifting version of events.
ON A SETTLEMENT:
Fox News, “Happening Now,” 11:20 am, Monday:
“If the restaurant did a settlement, I wasn’t even aware of it. And I hope it wasn’t for much, because nothing happened.”
National Press Club, 1 pm, Monday:
“I am unaware of any settlement. I hope it wasn’t for much, because I didn’t do anything.”
PBS Newshour, 6 p.m.:
“I was aware that an agreement was reached. The word ‘settlement’ versus the word ‘agreement,’ you know, I’m not sure what they called it. I know that there was some sort of agreement.”
Fox News, “On the Record,” 10 p.m. Monday:
“We ended up settling for what would have been a termination settlement, quite frankly … Maybe three months’ salary or something like that, just vaguely trying to recall it. … It might have been two months.”
CNN Headline News, “Morning Express,” Tuesday, 10 a.m.:
“The one that I remember and am aware of and was a financial settlement and it was somewhere in the vicinity of three to six months’ severance pay, something of that nature.”
