6829: Fiery Talk.
You’re Fired Up in a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• Donald Trump fired Miss California Carrie Prejean, although he insisted it had nothing to do with the woman’s politics, porn or general insanity. A pageant official said, “This was a decision based solely on contract violations, including Ms. Prejean’s unwillingness to make appearances on behalf of the Miss California USA organization.” No word if Celebrity Apprentice champion Joan Rivers will take over for Prejean.
• Reverend Jeremiah Wright is saying the wrong things again. While discussing his relationship with President Barack Obama, Wright declared, “Them Jews aren’t going to let him talk to me. I told my baby daughter that he’ll talk to me in five years when he’s a lame duck, or in eight years when he’s out of office. … They will not let him talk to somebody who calls a spade what it is … I said from the beginning: He’s a politician; I’m a pastor. He’s got to do what politicians do.” Actually, Wright often sounds more like a politician than a pastor.
• James von Brunn, the man arrested for the deadly shooting at the Holocaust Museum in Washington, claims he worked as a copywriter for BBDO about 50 years ago. He’s probably just saying that to initiate the inevitable insanity plea.
