And Then This Happened

On Topic with President Ken Starr

On Topic with David Brooks

Compelling conversations. Contemporary issues.

On Wednesday, March 2, 2016, noted author and political analyst David Brooks joins Baylor President and Chancellor Ken Starr for the first On Topic of 2016.
Once again I have picked the wrong week to quit amphetamines (and h/t alert reader Sarah for sending this my way.)

Is that the same Ken Starr I remember from previous Famous Wingnut Shenanigans? Or did they maybe grow a new one?

Oh Jeebus up in heaven spare us, yes it is the same Ken Starr of the Great Washington Penis Chase. Previous participants attempting to stay On Topic were, help me Jeebus, Rudy Guiliani, Joe Lieberman, Alan Dershowitz, T. Boone Pickens, and a bunch more. I must say that I haven't thought of it before, but David Brooks and Ken Starr have more than a passing resemblance to each-other, though my wife disagrees. Maybe it's just me.

Since sometime between May 17, 1886, and November 4, 1980, we have all been living in a failed timeline, or possibly a surrealist novel.

I've been searching everywhere for a place to go to get beltway conventional wisdom with a conservative slant. Finally.

This will be the biggest shakeup of the status quo since replacing Gregory with Todd.

Quoted from memory from Lynda Barry's "Ernie Pook's Comeek", above a drawing of kids jumping rope:
Bill and Monica sitting in a tree
Doing inappropriate intimacy.
Monica told Linda, Linda told Ken,
Now I'm telling you and I'm only ten.

Are any of you really truly surprised by Starr's rise to society pillar?

Condi Rice is where?

John Yoo is where?

If they had captured Osama Bin Laden. FOX would have put up lawyers to get him off. Just so they could put Bin Laden on a panel to portray the liberal.

If the GOP can obstruct the SCOTUS confirmation until a GOP'er is president. Odds are Scooter Libby could be on the Supreme Court.

Chief Justice John Roberts, anyone? What was his key role is Bush V Gore?

Human nose hair eating amoeba from outer space, eh...!

Good morning, Mr. Glass.

So Mr. Brooks is going Goth? Oh, wait. That's HOT Topic.

Be seeing you.

A panel of people less worth listening to I honestly can't imagine.

James Singer said...

Did Starr have a picture of Clinton's penis in his pocket or is the great hunt over?

Ivory Bill Woodpecker said...

It's been long enough since Ken Starr's colossal waste of our tax money for a satirical documentary about it.

Mr. Singer has already provided the title: "The Great Penis Hunt".

I suggest George Takei as our genial host.

This isn't the same Ken Starr, President of Baylor University, whose football program is being hammered by allegations of sexual assaults being covered up by school administrators would it? Why yes, yes it would. The Irony is pretty ironic.
