Weird TV moments tonight

Rate: 1 Flag

Both on MSNBC: Rachel Maddow playing off the Philly/Rocky theme, suggesting that Obama wants to be Rocky, but Clinton wants to be Adrian (the girlfriend, remember?) -- chosen by Rocky in the end.  She meant as Obama's running mate, but geesh --  if it had been Chris Matthews, he'd be dead.

About an hour later, Tim Russert was talking about Obama, and said he has to ask himself: "How do I get those white women?!" while making grabbing motions with his hands. Oy.

Whatever happens, it's been a wild race.

Was Russert wearing a white bedsheet with eye holes when he said that?
And Keith and Chris Matthews whispering together, full of vitriol against Hillary. Hey, I don't support her, but she won! Deal with it. And anyone who takes Terry McAuiliff's act seriously needs to get there head examined.
I keep thinking, you know, I really need to get a TV, get current on what everyone else is talking about, engage with culture on its own terms, yadda yadda.

And then I read something like this and decide that yeah, maybe there's no hurry.
