Nice Try, CBS

LOL. I was just watching 60 Minutes, and CBS ran this hilarious promo for their election coverage. The spot shows Katie Couric immediately and incongruously followed by a picture of Walter Cronkite. Ha ha ha.

And just as the United States will need decades to recover from the Bush years, so will CBS News require the same to recover from the Couric years.

They should have chosen Gwen.

I'd love to jump on the Katie is a mediocre anchor bandwagon, but in order to do so I suppose I'd have to watch her show at least once.
I think she's flopped as an anchor because she is a microdent--my term for someone with tiny baby teeth.
Anchors need big, shiny, white chompers in case they ever need to smile.

I don't remember Walter Cronkite's teeth at all!

Back then they didn't need to have shiny white anchor teeth. All they needed was a convincing scowl, a smoke-ravaged voice and a penis.

...which is why Barbara Walters was such a success. Well, two out of three!

But really - Katie makes Babwa look like Dorothy Thompson, Clare Boothe Luce, Tess Harding, and Diana Christensen, all wrapped up in one great big JournoDiva.

Microdent? Micrcephalic...

Aww, mothers and daughters and ABBA and breast cancer! One would have to have a heart of stone not to cackle insanely and wish for some horrible tragedy to befall them.

Also, they're multi-jillionaires but they dress like peasants! It's cute and kicky and in their case, not at all ironic.

I'm so sick of this woman and her chipmunk face and her bajillion-dollar contracts and whining. She has the gravitas of our president, which is to say, none.

Cute daughter, tho'.
