Dews Wednesday wtf?

King of all media and everything that is good and pure about entertainment Carson Daly (pause for dramatic effect), has apparently decided to defy the current writer's strike and begin production on his wildly successful massively influencial TV show "Last Call with Carson Daly".

Obviously this move was far overdue given the warm enlightenment we've been missing out on from not seeing Carson's never-aging TRL face, so I can forego any worries about the poor writer's getting their needs met...

Sorry, he may be funny, but to me he's still that jackass on TRL...

Venezuelan President and Dubya confidante Hugo Chavez is apparently convinced that CNN is out to instigate his muder:

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said on Wednesday CNN may have been instigating his murder when the U.S. TV network showed a photograph of him with a label underneath that read "Who killed him?"
The caption appeared to be a production mistake -- confusing a Chavez news item with one on the death of a football star. The anchor said "take the image down" when he realized.

This is of course shocking, given that attempts have been made on President Chavez's life numerous times by our current administration, which, I do not believe follow CNN's advice or suggestions, but I could also be way off base here as well.

In an interesting twist of political news, a new article by the McClatchy Newspaper (not exactly an unbiased source), compares current Democratic candidates proposals on Universal Healthcare to that of (you guessed it), Richard "Tricky Dick" Nixon.

Nixon was quite possibly the smartest president we've ever had regardless of his views on any particular topic. He combined the ruthless determination of an FDR with the political savvy of an LBJ (as well as the craziness of an Andrew Jackson perhaps...), so I have to at least respect the mans ability.

That being said, the comparisons they seem to draw in this article have not been historically vetted very well. Nixon may very well have "wanted" to provide some sort of universal healthcare when the evidence presented itself that such a system should be put into place, but he certainly DID intend on that system being primarily a for-profit industry for a sizable chunk of his political backers. The Nixon tapes speak to as much in several interviews he decided to "archive" in the oval office.

Finally our savior in the form of a corporation (GOOGLE), is branching its operations into alternative energy!
As part of a project announced Tuesday, the Internet search leader and its
philanthropic arm will pour hundreds of millions of dollars into a quest to
lower the cost of producing electricity from renewable energy sources such
as wind and the sun.

Ok, seriously, I have a serious crush (man-crush?) on GOOGLE. Everything they do is the greatest thing in the world and they have yet to let me down. This branching off into alternative energy can only mean that they mean to save us from the error of our ways and show us "the way".

All Hail GOOGLE!
(Having serious formatting issues with Blogger from this machine, so bear with me... It likes putting "div layers" freakin everywhere....)

Funny thing is, Carson Daly never got A list celebs to beging with. Who the hell does he think will talk to him now?

Funny you mention Andrew Jackson. The nerd I am watched the 2 hour special on him from history channel. Good stuff. I wouldnt go comparing him to Nixon. Nixon wasnt nuts, he was stubborn. Jackson was indeed nuts, but thanks to him, there is no Bank of the US.

Yea, I'll admit it.. I watched the same show, though I passed out off and on :)

It was pretty damn good. I had no idea that the Indian Nation regard him, to this day, as the American Hilter. And ironic, he opposed paper money, yet he is on the $20.

I know I completely veered off the topic, my bad. Had to brag!

Dews said...

No worries man, the crap he pulled on the Seminoles as well as most all of Spanish Florida and Louisiana could easily be equated to Hitler in many ways...

We have a history of wonderful leaders afterall...

SayHey Kid said...

Not just them tho, the other tribes who allied with him in the battle against the Creeks in Mississippi and Alabama in 1814 and War of 1812 at New Orleans.

At least he was able to balance the budget, a feat never accomplished by any president.

Dews said...

Didn't Clinton do that? With the surplus and all?

SayHey Kid said...

Well, we still had a significant national debt. Jackson wiped the slate clean.
