Ahh, last Saturday! It was a lovely spring afternoon- flowers blooming, birds chirping, young couples frolicking... all things I saw through my window as i sat drenched in ball sweat and human filth, watching MSNBC for six hours while my laptop had Huffington Post pulled up on Firefox. As I watched MSNBC shuffle its talking heads around different shows, during The Tim Russert Show I had a realization. CNN brands itself as "The Most Trusted Name In News"-- why doesn't MSNBC come out with a new slogan? Each of the shows could even have their own as well. After a long day viewing, this is what I came up with:
MSNBC: The Ugliest Team in Cable News
The Tim Russert Show: 3 experts. 50 years of political experience. 0 prom dates
Tim Russert- The old guy with a paunch standing alone in the corner of the bar.
Chuck Todd- Like Flight of the Conchords' Murray, but LESS suave.
David Gregory- You can't quite put your finger on it (is it the squinting?) but god damn it - SO FUCKING UGLY!
The Tim Russert Show: Expert analysis. Exclusive Interviews. Painfully uncomfortable interactions with women
