6 men, 2 women and sexist pig named Diane
The first hour of the Diane Rehm Show? It was about war so you know Diane didn't want any silly girls around getting all emotional, having their periods and fretting over clitoral orgasms. So she made it an all male panel -- and isn't that how it should be? Women are just so stupid, right?
(I'm being sarcastic.)
So Queen Bee Elderly chatted up/felt up Thom Shanker, Paul Pillar, Anthony O'Brien and Lawrence Korb.
That second hour? Shyness. Diane found two women who could talk about it (and two men): Liza Gold, Susan Cain, David Sloan Wilson and Todd Kashdan.
Oh, sure, I'll grab it. I didn't see it until Monday. I watch online and weekends are too cray. But I did see it Monday and, specifically, I saw the segment on Chris Rock.
Chris Rock has made himself a joke.
All he did as call out Bush. But today? He goes to the White House and offers insipid Tweets on Barack. Adam was correct. Chris Rock needs to be called out.
But Chris Rock really isn't anything.
His TV show (which was never a hit) got the axe sometime ago. His promising film career died about ten years ago. (At least ten years ago.) Black women like Chris Tucker better and Black men think Chris Rock's voice is too high and girly. His stand-up was never that funny and is now just tired.
So Chris Rock has numerous problems. And being a hypocrite is just one of many.
