Waiting for Dick

An actual conversation while watching Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve:

“God, this is awful. When do they drag Dick Clark on?”

“Dick Clark is dead!”

“Well that will really be something if they bring him out, then.”

  1. Weirdly, in Iowa, people watch the Times Square Ball Drop at 11 PM . . . and that’s pretty much it. No need to stay up ’til midnight local time to get credit. We were at friends’ house, so I could not control the television . . . but I could not actually watch the final run-up to the ball drop and the aftermath because idiot anti-Vaxxer Jenny McCarthy (!!!) was on-screen every time I looked. How does someone who has done so much harm get such a choice gig? (Well, beyond the obvious answer related to her willingness to display her breasts). Horrible. I grieve for the soul of my nation. And its intelligence.

    1. Allowing her on that broadcast — and to host The View — gives her a platform for her quackery. Even if she doesn’t utter a word about vaccines, ABC is giving her credibility.
