Speaking of O'Reilly, a little while ago Newt Gingrich was on his show, and the two of them were talking about how great Fox News is. I've seen this kind of thing other times as well, and it just makes me figure that they have to spend a lot of time talking themselves up because watching the channel itself generally gives the impression that it's actually just a bunch of holier-than-thou old guys regurgitating Republican Party talking points. It's like how the people who make a point of saying they have a good sense of humor are often the ones who couldn't laugh if ordered to at gunpoint. (Okay, it would probably be hard for ANYONE to laugh if they had a gun pointing at them. Bad metaphor, but you get the idea, right?) By the way, Newt was promoting the two books he'd just written, one of which was fiction. (All right, they were probably both fiction, but he actually admitted that one of them was.) Is anyone at all surprised by the fact that the fiction book has a picture of something exploding on the cover?
Oh, and you know that GoPhone commercial with Meat Loaf in it? Earlier today, I saw an Internet ad for the same product was Sonic the Hedgehog in it. I felt that was worth mentioning, even though it has nothing to do with the rest of this entry.
