Today’s Bizarre Newsbits

1. Renegade billionaire Allen “Bernie Jr.” Stanford seems to have taken a cue from Carmen San Diego and vanished.

2. Wacko Michele Bachman is against the stimulus because we’re “running out of rich people”?!”! WTF? (Come ON, Minnesota, get the Al Franken thing right and then ditch her!)

3. Pretend journalist Ann Curry asked Bill Clinton if he was the 13th person responsible for the economic meltdown. Guess she has that peculiar amnesia about the last eight years (surely there were more than 12 people involved from 2001 to 2008!).

4. Finally, American Idol is really stinking it up tonight. What’s in that backstage Evian?! I‘m tweeting all about it. But I love that Danny Gokey! Just put him in the top four NOW!

The Barry & Joe Show

And now for tonight’s speechifying:

Big Bill: I’ll have to watch the replay — I was heading home from work when he took the stage, so I heard him on NPR then rushed into the house and tried to listen over barking hungry dogs. Not exactly conducive to concentration. I think he hit it, although it wasn’t one for the ages like Hillary’s. But he remains the presidential Elvis!

John Kerry: This might have been the speech of the evening. I stumbled on it when I moved from MSNBC to CSPAN and whoa, the real president (I still think he won in 2004) was slapping around He of Too Many Houses. Of course, what was going on while Kerry was delivering the “red meat” the talking heads keep bemoaning the lack thereof? Well, NBC was busy with America’s Got Talent, ABC had Supernanny making kids behave, and CBS — most appropriately — had Criminal Minds going (yeah, and we know where they live — Mordor, I mean, DC!). STOP READING NOW AND WATCH THIS SPEECH. DO NOT PASS GO!

Bo Biden: The kid can TALK! What a great introduction.

Joe Biden: An interesting mix of muted musings (was I wrong in thinking a complete hush repeatedly descended on the hall?) combined with some Joe fire. Anyone who can go from stillness to power — ah, Joe, you delivered! Loved the line about Darth Cheney and pointing out how wrong HOTMH has been, over and over.

The Big Moment: Yes, MSNBC gave it away (Ken, bad boy!), but it sure was groovy when Barry walked out and hollered, “Hello, Democrats!” and joined the Biden clan. Then when “The Rising” piped up, I was dancin’ and groovin’, shoutin’ “I’m READY!” Good thing the neighbors can’t look into my living room! And I love that Barry referred to Invesco as Mile High Stadium!
