Must Not See TV

Here’s something you’ll definitely want to miss — Meghan McCain has her own TV show starting August 1 on Pivot (yeah, I never heard of it either).

She describes it as a “middle ground between the Kardashians and C-SPAN.”  Is there that much difference — don’t they both showcase America’s biggest narcissists?  Anyway, Meghan will fit right in.

C-Span to Replace the Late Dick Clark

Reid and McConnell have given themselves a deadline of tomorrow afternoon to come up with a plan, which they intend to present to their respective caucuses around 3 P. M.

If it seems as if they have the votes to pass the thing, there will be a vote on Monday afternoon, and then it goes to the House, and the ball is back in Boehner’s court, where it always seems to get stuck in the net.

I don’t know if there will be funny hats in the House on New Year’s Eve, but there will definitely be a lot of noise makers with R’s after their names.

Anybody remember ever watching C-Span on New Year’s?

Colbert Moving from Comedy Central to C-Span?

A new South Carolina PPP poll shows Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert in the lead to replace GOP Sen. Jim DeMint, who is moving his Tea Parties to the Heritage Foundation.

Colbert has 20%, GOP Congressman Tim Scott has 15%, GOP Congressman Trey Gowdy has 14%, and former first lady — and spurned spouse of former Gov. Mark Sanford — Jenny Sanford has 11%.

Gov. Nikki Haley will choose someone to fill the seat until the 2014 election.
