What Fresh Hell Is This?

June 9, 2010


Remember this column by Jack Kelly?

Both Ed Heath and I blogged on it.

BTW, if you don't already know Ed's blog, go take a look. The wanker does a really really good job taking down Jack. I find myself grumbling, "Why the f**k didn't I think of that??" whenever I read his stuff. The wanker.

Anyway, back to Jack the Hack. The P-G published this in yesterday's paper:
Editor's Note / This column was changed to reflect this clarification, which was published on June 8:

Sunday Perspectives. Rep. Joe Sestak told Philadelphia radio host Larry Kane that he was offered a job by the Obama administration if he didn't run for the Senate seat held by Arlen Specter, but when asked if it was a high-ranking job, Mr. Sestak did not say "yes," as reported in a Jack Kelly column Sunday. The original account posted by the radio program on its website did have Mr. Sestak answering "yes" to the question. But a transcript subsequently posted on the site showed that Mr. Sestak refused to comment on whether it was the job of Navy secretary and a short time later responded this way when asked if it was a "big" job: "It was - never - let me not comment on it. We had a closed comm ... " The conversation was interrupted at this point by Mr. Kane's next question.
Something, I have to say in all honest, I had nothing to do with. But with glee in my heart and a twinkle in my eye I have to ask, "Another Jack Kelly correction?"

Kudos to the P-G for this one.

I happened to watch several episodes of "Lie to Me" between Sunday and Monday. Tim Roth (a pretty good, but perhaps not great actor) called at least one person a wanker in that almost Cockney accent of his.

As Curly of the three stooges said "I remsemble that remark". (and all this time I thought it was Norm Crosby ... maybe he plagiarized).
