Open thread: Michelle guest-hosting the Factor again; Video: Olby defends Michelle; Video: Michelle on Shabazz

Show starts in 10 minutes. I’m told Geraldo was on to talk about Imus but the subject naturally veered towards immigration, resulting in a punch-up and the boss getting him in a headlock until he lost consciousness.

Or maybe I’m exaggerating slightly. You’ll just have to watch and see, won’t you?

We at HA love Papa Bear, consider him a national treasure, and would never dare suggest that he could be replaced. But … I’d be remiss if I didn’t note that the ratings were pretty sweet last night. Supah-stah!

There’ll be video here of one sort or another in a bit. Standby.

Update: I’m working on a clip of MM; sit tight. In the meantime, here’s what was going on across the dial.

Awfully big of Olby to defend her from Malik Shabazz. Except … that wasn’t Malik Shabazz in the screencap they used. It was Opio Sokoni, who appeared in the segment before Shabazz’s. Close enough, Kayo!

Interesting, too, how eerily similar their screencap was to the frame I chose for our own video clip last night:


Update: All right, you get a grab bag tonight. The bookends are the talking points memo from the beginning of the show and the viewer mailbag at the end. In between, the good, the bad, and the ugly of Geraldo Rivera. Takeaway: “Whose civil rights?”

Whatever little respect I had for Geraldo has
completely evaporated.
He’s as washed up as Imus.

Whatever caused you to have respect for Gerald Riviera? He has always been a phoney. Panela Lee’s silicone is more authentic than “Geraldo”. This is the guy who reported “live” from “near a battlezone”, when he was more than 300 miles away. Not that he was never near a battlezone; drawing a map in the sand, live on the air, of the impending mission his embedded unit was about to conduct. Idiot. Self-promoting oxygen thief.

Back in the early 70’s Geraldo exposed Willowbrook State School for its terrible mess and abuse of disabled residents and mentally retarded children. He broke into
the facility to collect information and tell the story.

That is something I will never forget. He changed the lives
of the many who were tossed to the garbage pit called Willowbrook.

After watching yet another silk glove interview with Al Sharpton (Chris Wallace Fox News Sunday) I am ready for Michelle to have at him. She is the only one with the [email protected]’s to call him out as a race baiting, shake down artist.

*Ding*Ding*Ding* The winner and still champeen, Michelle Malkin. Great stuff, IMHO.
