Tucker Carlson, Pinching Nipples and Darfur.

Let me remind you that this is my blog and I do not have to stay focused. I have no stories I feel like telling. I spent the weekend at the Newport film festival with my best friend from school, it was great. We spent the weekend on a sailboat in the harbor, sleeping on it etc. It belongs to a family friend of his and it had several cabins and it was really nice; after catching some risqu� film shorts on Sunday morning we went sailing and I came home exhausted. We didn't actually sail it ourselves and it did have an engine. I don't want to give anyone the impression that I am a sailor of any kind. I am working and teaching an art class so that is keeping me busy. My car was in an accident, I was not driving. That is all on that for now. I�m trying to finish The Lucifer Principle. I was trolling through some other blogs and saw one which referenced Tucker Carlson; it was interesting because late last night I was watching the repeat of his earlier show and was thinking the same thoughts as were presented in this blog. I am a fairly liberal democrat born and bred of fairly liberal democrats and some of the stuff he says makes perfect sense to me. Should I be concerned that somehow my political ideology is changing? Should I be happy that I have enough sense to actually realize that this whole party system, this whole left or right thing, is all a fallacy, and that in the end we must take pieces from every part and find what we truly believe in? Michael Jackson: No comment; after all Darfur is still there so let�s (please) stop worrying about Michael , his minions and their coup d�etat. "Let us not worry about Michael??" The people, (and that silly blonde from Court TV), cry; �this will prevent all the children that are being molested from coming forth. This is a travesty.� Bull. It was a shame, he is a sick pervert and maybe he will get some help, but we have genocides occurring,, women being raped and beaten, children starving and unable to get basic healthcare. That is the travesty. Oh.. " they are not our people" you say. Go to hell! Of course they are. I also want to mention, to the guy who was writing that little piece of what he thought was erotica, �and I pinched her nipple hard� is not erotica. It is a statement which invokes, at the very least, a wince. Then again, I would expect no more from someone with an " I love Ann Coulter" banner on their site. I promise something more titillating next time like: Why I love men who play instruments but can�t seem to let them play mine.

I agree with you. That statement you quoted does not sound like it has anything to do with erotic. Erotic has to leave something to the imagination. Maybe it's all imagination, and the more conrete the description becomes, the less erotic and the more ordinary/pornographic it becomes.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting. I hope you stop by again, soon.

No stories you feel like telling, eh? How about stories we feel like hearing? Did you ever think about that in your processing of when and what to update your site with?

Probably not.

Don't you know, we have feelings too? What kind of individual who shamelessly panders to her audience are you anyway?

You are so correct on the Darfur/Jackson point. I think we live in a sick, twisted, disillusioned media world.

As far as Tucker: Yeah, sometimes he seems to want to split the middle and then sometimes he is spouting right wing garbage. I think what he does is he uses the centrist stances to get peoples attention and gain some trust then hits them with some right wing stuff later on and portrays it all like it's common sense.

I'm not saying that's what he does all the time, that's just my impression of him. I really have nothing against the guy, except maybe the bow tie.

I do agree with him on a lot of things, but I do disagree with him on a lot of things also.

I think "pinching nipples" seems erotic to a man. How little do they know that's the equivalent to "tugging on testicles".

O. K., Darfur is no joke.
But I'm having a hard time dealing with the image of Tucker Carlson pinching Michael Jackson's nipples. . .
