Tapping To Vapidity

If it’s true that NBC is going to cancel Jay Leno’s prime-time gig, then I suppose they could replace it with something like America’s Tap-Dancing Pundits. It’s not like there isn’t plenty of material there on all the cable channels, including MSNBC, CNN, and Fox that gets generated before and after a “Breaking News” segment such as yesterday’s long wait for President Obama to speak yet again on what happened when a Nigerian’s jockey shorts failed to ignite.

Listening to Chris Matthews carry on about the presser should probably be brought to the attention of the people who monitor the Geneva Conventions, and I can’t help but think that someone is whispering in his ear that he has to drag this out and make it the Most Important News Story Ever, or at least until they can get to the commercial break to sell Sham-Wows or boner pills.
