Funny I don’t remember MKH at my school.

baldilocks on July 18, 2007 at 9:17 PM

Ripping out the weave ? Sounds like a hip hop dance song.

William Amos on July 18, 2007 at 9:19 PM

I like the pink and orange weave on a hot ghetto mess!

SouthernGent on July 18, 2007 at 9:26 PM

Gotta love that smile.

Paul the American on July 18, 2007 at 9:27 PM

This is depressing. (Although MK is wonderful as usual) I graduated from a “ghetto” school. We had knife fights, pot smoking, and unwed teens, but I never remember any girl getting into a fight. There was at least that.

Rightwingsparkle on July 18, 2007 at 9:30 PM

That was almost as funny as Courtney Friel on Red Eye last night saying why she don’t ride male horses.

abinitioadinfinitum on July 18, 2007 at 9:30 PM

i like to watch girl-fight videos for the same reason i like to watch the first 3 weeks of American Idol and it’s the same reason i slow down when there’s a fender-bender on the interstate: rubber-necking.

stevezilla on July 18, 2007 at 9:31 PM

I suspect Bill’s problem was more with the way it was distributed than with the comment. The ghetto mess site does send out the message of “Look at yourselves! See how you act! You wonder why we have these problems?”

boomer on July 18, 2007 at 9:31 PM

Yeah, it’s like watching fireworks. Or drinking eight beers.

The only thing better than girl fights? Robot fights.

Allahpundit on July 18, 2007 at 9:32 PM

Yeah, it’s like watching fireworks. Or drinking eight beers.

The only thing better than girl fights? Robot fights.

Allahpundit

You SERIOUSLY need to fix your programming if women fights are not as good as robot fights

Defector01 on July 18, 2007 at 9:32 PM

My robot will rip MK’s weave out.

Allahpundit on July 18, 2007 at 9:33 PM

OH Here is the Video, very funny!

abinitioadinfinitum on July 18, 2007 at 9:34 PM

Ah, how about girl-robot fights?

Mack08 on July 18, 2007 at 9:34 PM

comment.

woops should be content.

boomer on July 18, 2007 at 9:34 PM

OH Here is the Video, very funny!

Good lord, is she hot. She’s Julie-Banderas-level hot.

Almost.

Allahpundit on July 18, 2007 at 9:36 PM

Good lord, is she hot. She’s Julie-Banderas-level hot.

Almost.

Allahpundit on July 18, 2007 at 9:36 PM

I wonder if Allah would spontainiously combust if she was using the I phone ?

William Amos on July 18, 2007 at 9:38 PM

Funny I don’t remember MKH at my school.

baldilocks on July 18, 2007 at 9:17 PM

baldilocks, is that how you got your nick name :;- P
just kidding I read your blog and know the story LOLove

abinitioadinfinitum on July 18, 2007 at 9:39 PM

Allahpundit on July 18, 2007 at 9:33 PM

Haha, thanks for making me spit beer on my keyboard!

hollygolightly on July 18, 2007 at 9:48 PM

My robot will rip MK’s weave out.
Allahpundit on July 18, 2007 at 9:33 PM

Rare form my friend. One concern. How could you still be on your eighth beer? Hmmm? They don’t sell eight packs.

SouthernDem on July 18, 2007 at 9:50 PM

Oh, I buy them by the 12-pack. I stopped an hour ago, though.

Allahpundit on July 18, 2007 at 9:51 PM

I wonder if Allah would spontainiously combust if she was using the I phone ?

Oh my God… now that is funny.

ulyses on July 18, 2007 at 9:51 PM

BTW, why is everyone acting like You Tube is the first to show girls acting crazy? Didn’t anyone watch “Flavor of Love” and its various spin-offs (yes, I loved it, don’t hate)? Pumkin spitting on New York and their rumble or Bootz trying to push Krazy off the balcony (and yes, I’m aware of all these names not being spelled right, that’s how they spelled it)??

hollygolightly on July 18, 2007 at 9:54 PM

Well, I’m shocked, but for once I’m with Bill. I don’t get the violence attraction either. Call me crazy or old-fashioned, but I’m still attracted to women that haven’t gotten their teeth knocked out.

Spirit of 1776 on July 18, 2007 at 10:00 PM

I’m so tired of O’Reilly’s vain moralizing.

PRCalDude on July 18, 2007 at 10:00 PM

Me too.

Allahpundit on July 18, 2007 at 10:01 PM

Courtney may be hot but Julie Banderas is HOTTTTT…

Julie is in a class by herself.

…And I’d like to be teaching that class.

Always Right on July 18, 2007 at 10:04 PM

Julie is in a class by herself.

She really is.

Allahpundit on July 18, 2007 at 10:07 PM

Allahpundit on July 18, 2007 at 10:07 PM

and I’m minutes late again.

PowWow on July 18, 2007 at 10:14 PM

You laugh…some years ago when my son was fairly new out of high school, I had to chaperone a dance and dragged him with me to help. A chick fight erupted, and he dove in there with the rest of us to separate the combatants. This is a kid who has been raised by a whole passel o’ wimmen (mother, sisters, and an aunt) who have instilled a healthy respect for women in him. So he was gentle when he tried to grab a girl to keep her from tearing back into the fray.

Big mistake. Chick fights are brutal–profanity screeching, weave and nail flying, stiletto heels wielding–brutal. No lie. The girl he was trying to restrain tried to get away, and…bit him. He was less gentle after that and the young lady in question sat home for some time for her indiscretions against an adult.

And like any high school fight, it brought out the voyeurs. I don’t get why that sort of thing is so appealing (enough to run the risk of geting suspended for running to watch), but it is, especially if girls are involved.

I don’t chaperone dances any more if I can help it.

Bob's Kid on July 18, 2007 at 10:17 PM

Well, I’m shocked, but for once I’m with Bill. I don’t get the violence attraction either. Call me crazy or old-fashioned, but I’m still attracted to women that haven’t gotten their teeth knocked out.

I’ll introduce you to my daughter, then…not only does she have all her teeth, they’re very nice teeth to boot.

/years of orthodontia saw to that!

Bob's Kid on July 18, 2007 at 10:18 PM

Bob’s Kid on July 18, 2007 at 10:17 PM

Biting. Ugh, shutter at the thought. Imo there are lines in a fight that should not be crossed save for life or death circumstances, that is certainly one of them!

I stopped an hour ago, though.
Allahpundit on July 18, 2007 at 9:51 PM

No worries mate, I’ll take it from here.

Spirit of 1776 on July 18, 2007 at 10:20 PM

MKH should get some props for another part of her bit with Bill; he was steam rolling her pretty bad over another website that had still shots and essays; she was trying to point out some positives and he just talked right over her. Normally, I don’t mind that with some of his more annoying guests, but I wanted to hear what she had to say..at any rate, she hid her frustration well behind that 500 gigawatt smile.

And no, girl fights aren’t fun or sexy. Try breaking one up between a couple of boozehounds; they go from pulling hair to punching b*lls in nothing flat. Just watching that damn clip gave me flashbacks.

austinnelly on July 18, 2007 at 10:21 PM

Bob’s Kid on July 18, 2007 at 10:18 PM

lol. Well if she is as charming as you, I’m sure she’s delightful.

Spirit of 1776 on July 18, 2007 at 10:21 PM

Allah, tell the robot to Bring. It. On.

I wrote some more detailed thoughts on the Hot Ghetto Mess issue, here. I may flesh it out into a column. Interesting story that I don’t think Bill gave a chance.

marykatharine on July 18, 2007 at 10:29 PM

Don’t you wish your girlfriend was more like me….

and now, to hell with Boree’s vain moralizing.

williars on July 18, 2007 at 10:31 PM

O’Reilly is such a tool. If he would just shut up for 5 seconds, he might learn something. MKH was trying as hard as she could to explain the context of Hot Ghetto Mess, which IS important (context, that is). But he can’t seem to get enough of hearing his own voice. O’Reilly’s problem is that he wants a yes or no answer to a multi-part essay question.

Sweaty Deacon on July 18, 2007 at 10:33 PM

What’s a weave?

Slublog on July 18, 2007 at 10:35 PM

I blame school integration for the lack of social etiquette. The new Supreme Court ruling found that school busing can not be used for the sole purpose of desegregation. They also found that the use of busing has to be for the purpose of economic inequality only.

sonnyspats1 on July 18, 2007 at 10:36 PM

Julie is in a class by herself.

She really is.

Allahpundit on July 18, 2007 at 10:07 PM

I agree, and while Friel is hot too, Banderas still has something more, I’m not sure what.

As for Friel, that was hilarious last night. She also admitted on the show last night, that she had a dream about getting it on with her sister, and that her sister had had the same dream. Seriously.

RightWinged on July 18, 2007 at 10:39 PM

BTW… MKH, where did you go to school that girls were ripping weaves out of each other’s hair?

RightWinged on July 18, 2007 at 10:39 PM

What’s a weave?

Slublog on July 18, 2007 at 10:35 PM

Hair weaves. Most of those dredlocks and braids you see are weaves. And the pink hair, blue hair, fire engine red hair

Sweaty Deacon on July 18, 2007 at 10:42 PM

Sweaty Deacon on July 18, 2007 at 10:42 PM

Thank you.

Unlike Dr. Evil, I’m neither “hip” nor “with it.”

Count your blessings.

Bob's Kid on July 18, 2007 at 10:47 PM

he just talked right over her
austinnelly on July 18, 2007 at 10:21 PM

Bill does that almost as much as Jerry River (Geraldo Rivera), well about a tenth as much anyway

abinitioadinfinitum on July 18, 2007 at 10:47 PM

BTW… MKH, where did you go to school that girls were ripping weaves out of each other’s hair?

Durham, North Carolina, baby!

marykatharine on July 18, 2007 at 10:49 PM

And it ain’t exactly exclusive to Durham, either.

Sigh…

Bob's Kid on July 18, 2007 at 10:52 PM

I never remember any girl getting into a fight. There was at least that.

Rightwingsparkle on July 18, 2007 at 9:30 PM

Must not have been a *black* ghetto.

baldilocks, is that how you got your nick name :;- P

abinitioadinfinitum on July 18, 2007 at 9:39 PM

Thanks for making me scream laughter. :-D

baldilocks on July 18, 2007 at 10:53 PM

marykatharine on July 18, 2007 at 10:49 PM

If I may, you’ve been quite impressive on the teevee MKH. Especially on that CNN show. Talking heads spouting talking points usually wears me out pretty quick, but you do a great job, kudos.

Spirit of 1776 on July 18, 2007 at 10:54 PM

You know what would be funny? Bill and MKH in the same studio (as opposed to split screen) and halfway through the segment Bill turns to her and says, “Hey, Mary Katharine! Pull my finger!”

radjah shelduck on July 18, 2007 at 10:57 PM

Great segment, mkh.

JammieWearingFool on July 18, 2007 at 11:02 PM

I think Allah missed his calling as a Battlebots builder.

marykatharine on July 18, 2007 at 10:29 PM

Well done mk. Checked out the site and your ramblings (meant in a good way!) Sometimes the best way to see how big a horses patoot a person is, is to watch it all on video. Hopefully it might wake some of these kids up. Keep up the good work.

serenity on July 18, 2007 at 11:09 PM

Durham, North Carolina, baby!

marykatharine on July 18, 2007 at 10:49 PM

MKH called me baby!

Seriously though, I was just curious where you could have grown up with so many “weaves”, as weaves are primarily something black people wear… I see Durham is about 45% black and 45% white which is in the higher end for black percentage of the population for anywhere in the country, so I guess that would make sense. (Keep in mind I went to school and grew up in VT and was lucky to see a weave…. ever, until I moved south for 5 years, which is why I had to wonder where you were from. By comparison, the state of Vermont’s population is only .5% – yes half a percent – black, which amounts to about 3,000, and I would say at least a couple hundred of them are Sudanese refugees.)

RightWinged on July 18, 2007 at 11:22 PM

Uggg, I feel so old now. I had to scroll down this far to find out what the whole “Pulling the weaves out” thing was all about. Dang. And I thought I might still be in an age group that I might have a chance at wooing MKH. My hopes are crushed.

MalkinFan on July 18, 2007 at 11:24 PM

On another note though, Ol’Bill was a jerk on that segment. He never let the hot one finish anything she was saying. He kinda pissed me off.

MalkinFan on July 18, 2007 at 11:27 PM

I love how O’Reilly gets into fights even with guests with whom he has no disagreement. Ham says the advertisers didn’t want to end up supporting America’s Funniest Home Videos Ghetto Edition…O’Reilly clearly agrees…so what does he do? Well, naturally he starts sharply and condescendingly lecturing his guest about how it’s not funny and how tough it is in the ghetto. Mmm, that’s good psychodrama.

Alex K on July 18, 2007 at 11:34 PM

BTW… MKH, where did you go to school that girls were ripping weaves out of each other’s hair?

marykatharine on July 18, 2007 at 10:49 PM

Well, that explains a lot.

baldilocks on July 18, 2007 at 11:38 PM

Interesting story that I don’t think Bill gave a chance.

marykatharine on July 18, 2007 at 10:29 PM

He rarely does.

Seriously, he never did get that the site uses the videos to make a point against behavior like that. Poor Bill.

Nice job, MK. BTW, Kentucky kicks the Tarhell’s butts.

BacaDog on July 18, 2007 at 11:40 PM

Darn – I drank AP’s last 4 beers.

Tarheel, not Tarhell. Well, maybe not……

BacaDog on July 18, 2007 at 11:41 PM

Ha! Its on again!

Bad Candy on July 18, 2007 at 11:49 PM

It was primarily a black high school, but this was back in the late 70′s my dear.

abinitioadinfinitum on July 19, 2007 at 12:02 AM

Hey Sparkle, I am a bit interested in what you have to say if you get your blog going again. I Took a little time to read some of your old posts…good stuff there.

Off topic, but I think should be brought to attention. A blog I read allot is Atlas Shrugs. Her blog, along with allot of others is getting banned. http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2007/07/best-blogs-bann.html

Serious stuff here I think.

MalkinFan on July 19, 2007 at 12:12 AM

No, I missed Redeye. I rarely do miss it though.

Bad Candy on July 19, 2007 at 12:14 AM

Yeah, I’ve heard of some of the shady dealings with certain sites getting blocked. I’m guessing they’re being targeted because of they’re sites focused heavily on the jihadists. I dunno what the answer is.

Bad Candy on July 19, 2007 at 12:30 AM

Anyone who invites MKH on his program as much as O’Reilly does is skippy-dippy ok in my book. :-)

Lincoln on July 19, 2007 at 12:51 AM

Girl fights never did have any appeal for me, not even back in the day. Always looked at it as trailer trash. MK, on the other hand…much appeal! She’d be fantastic without the knock em out smile, but with?? Be still my beating heart…

San Dimas Robot High School Football ROOOOOOOLS!!!!!!

Tman on July 19, 2007 at 1:10 AM

I see no answer either, but the attack is real. It comes from many fronts. It comes from the Islamofacists, then it comes from their enablers in the press. Like the AP, and the BBC.
Al Jezzera, NYT, (Ya, I know, I did not bother spelling Al Jizzera correctly.)LA times.(Ooops, did I miss a capital letter there? Na. Now we move on to our government that is determined to make us uninformed about those who wish to kill us. And the next step? Our own private enterprise, liveing off the riches of the one free place in the that would allow them to make the millions they have from nothing, actually cutting off information that could help defeat the people that would chop the heads off those same intellectuals. If that is what a Intellectual is, I do not want to be one.

MalkinFan on July 19, 2007 at 2:00 AM

Men like to watch women beat the tar out of each other and rip each other’s clothes off.

Why, now that you mention it, yes we do.

Back in my school, the quickest way to get buzz was to rip some girl’s weave out.

That may well be the funniest thing I’ve ever heard on a news show. Bill O’ looked like he was going to wet himself.

Blacksheep on July 19, 2007 at 5:53 AM

Cheers to the 45 being the new 30. :-)

baldilocks on July 19, 2007 at 1:09 AM

’77, and as with you, a year ahead. 45 just went in the rear view mirror a bit ago, and my wife keeps telling me I’ll have to slow down soon. Not gonna doit, wouldn’t be prudent.

I had the misfortune in high school of trying to break up a girl fight among two sprinters at a track meet. Danger, Will Robinson, Danger!

Na, I drink real beer, not Camel pee like most people drink.

MalkinFan on July 19, 2007 at 2:00 AM

I quit drinking after I turned 21, but I believe in another thread AP said he was drinking Newcastle Brown Ale, and I’m not thinking that’s the sort of watery trash to which you refer. My understanding is that it’s a fairly stout brew.

Freelancer on July 19, 2007 at 6:27 AM

O’Really’s half of the split screen is larger then MKH’s. Is that fair and balanced?

Dread Pirate Roberts VI on July 19, 2007 at 8:40 AM

Yeah, it’s like watching fireworks. Or drinking eight beers.

The only thing better than girl fights? Robot fights.

Allahpundit on July 18, 2007 at 9:32 PM

Please, Allah, put the curtain back.

marykatharine on July 18, 2007 at 10:29 PM

“Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. They are the only two who can say whatever they want without fear of backlash.”

Two of the worst race baiters and rabble rousers on the planet. They justify bad behavior. People like Bill Cosby and Jam Donaldson don’t have a chance against them. Cosby and Donaldson ask for personal responsibility and accountability and that just requires too darned much effort.

Connie on July 19, 2007 at 9:17 AM

Gotta love that smile.

Paul the American on July 18, 2007 at 9:27 PM

Yeah, I’m a sucker for a great smile and MKH smile melts me like butter.

Rightwingsparkle on July 19, 2007 at 11:24 AM

I saw the segment last night, and have a movie suggestion based on it:

Kill Bill III: Shutting Up O’Reilly for 10 bloody seconds

I occasionally watch his show, but is his ego that threatened that he can’t let MKH finish an occasional sentence without interruping? I wanted to reach through the TV and duct tape his mouth shut.

Hollowpoint on July 19, 2007 at 11:25 AM

Ah, how about girl-robot fights?

Mack08 on July 18, 2007 at 9:34 PM

Connie on July 19, 2007 at 9:01 AM

My point exactly. Busing kids away from home created a great disconnect between themselves and their community. Remember accountability. Back in the day evey mom in your neighborhood was your mom. It was harder to get away with mischief.
