The first hour of Friday's Diane Rehm Show (NPR) featured David Corn, Jeanne Cummings and Byron York as the guests. The second hour was Mark Landller, Susan Glasser and Hisham Melhem.
Now Whitney (NBC, Thursday nights) is hilarious. The latest episode was Whitney and Alex arguing over whether or not he used a tone when he argued. So Whitney got Mark to put a camera in their aparement so Alex could be caught on tape using the tone.
"There it is the tone," Whitney said early on. " That tone. Now Whitney I know everything tone. . . . Oh my God, you used that condescending tone. You sound like Al Gore."
And he did sound like Al Gore. Stream the episode if you missed it, it's very funny.
Also funny was this exchange about fighting.
Neal: When we fight, Lily quotes Adelle lyrics and then denies it. She tries to pass them off as her own thoughts.
Lily: I think the real problem is that you know Adelle lyrics.
Okay, Thursday we offered theme posts: Cedric's "Dickless Alter's in love" and Wally's "THIS JUST IN! DICKLESS ALTER!" went up last night and others posting last night followed Rebecca and Betty's lead from earlier in the week ("scream" and "Halloween") by doing posts on scary movies in anticipation of Halloween on Monday. Isaiah's "The Unity Campaign" (The Birds), Ann's "4 men and Psycho," Ruth's "The Haunting," Marcia's "The Bad Seed," Stan's "Aliens," Kat's "Mothra vs. Godzilla," Trina's "Horror of Dracula," Mike's "The Omen," Betty's "Brian De Palma" and Rebecca's "empire of the ants."
