On like Donkey Kong: Co-hosting “The Independents” tonight on Fox Business

posted at 8:11 pm on June 11, 2014 by Mary Katharine Ham

I’m co-hosting “The Independents” on Fox Business at 9 p.m. tonight, subbing for the lovely and totally rad Kennedy. Today’s Me is honored and excited, and somewhere, 1994 Mary Katharine is all SQUEE.

Find out how many detainees Ron Paul would have released for Bergdahl! Who does Rep. Justin Amash like for leadership? See Chris Moody’s hair! And, I get my own segment— “Going HAM.” Because I’m hard. Obvi. Matt Welch runs down the show.

As befits tradition, Red Meat Wednesday is back with a KABOOM! (Don’t ask how red meat explodes, just work with me.) Kicking off the show is the right honorable libertarian gentleman Ron Paul, who will likely talk about how much he misses Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va., though not for long), and also what we’ve learned from today’s Bowe Bergdahl congressional hearings with Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel. Batting second is Yahoo News political reporter Chris Moody, who will hopefully unravel the mystery of who is David Brat, and why exactly did he win. Cleanup is Ron Paul 2.0 Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.), who knows a thing or two about running primary elections against the Chamber of Commerce. And rounding out the Cantor-Commentary is FreedomWorks President/CEO Matt Kibbe, who will exclusively reveal whether he had to Google how to pronounce Brat’s name correctly last night.

Party Panel tonight is Red Eye co-host Andy Levy and NASCAR-loving Fox News correspondent Dagen McDowell,

In the meantime, please enjoy this very important debate from last night’s “Red Eye” on toys of the ’80s during which we discover only I was actually a child of the ’80s. So, you should only trust me. Click to watch this all-estrogen panel (Hi, Andy):

I actually woke up in the middle of the night and watched Red Eye. Was pleasantly surprised to see MKH on the panel. :) LOL it was so much more fun than seeing you combat both Juan and BOR!

Well, since you will be on TV tonite MHK, would you still be willing to do a little “Baby Got Back” dancing before the closing segment?

I mean, do it for the children! And to take my mind off that Gwad-awful Dumb n Dumber sequel AP posted a few threads back. :o)

Robert Plant & Mick Jagger (to name a few) just did a double spittake with that one.

Nirvana was…different…but there’s a reason why Grunge went by the wayside: too damn mopey for most. But that’s just IMHO.

You need to get your perceptions straightened out. MKH posts here very infrequently. I had high expectations when she started, but she has seemed to post the least frequently of all the bloggers. Sorry if my comment wasn’t sycophant enough for you.

Forgiveness: Just my way of saying that Hair Band rock still lives, and it outlives Grundge even now.

Even the worse (ok, maybe not THE worst) Hair Bands will still outshine Grunge…and get more airplay…simply because it didn’t take itself seriously.

Grunge is just Folk music, but with more flannel. Again, IMHO. :O)

Actually I think most of us just wish you would take the hint, Susan.

About all you do is b!tch.. about everything and everyone.

Congrats on the airtime MKH. I don’t watch much TV, but it’s good to know we have the likes of you out there on the screen fighting.

Better?

Ron Paul agrees with Hillary that the guys Obama traded for Bowe aren’t threats. Now he appears to be aware of 9/11. I guess lightening won’t strike twice. Oh wait, thrice.

Bmore on June 11, 2014 at 9:14 PM

Mary Katherine, this was linked on Noah’s earlier thread. Do we want to let Brat be Palinized? (check it out Bmore!) Is Brat’s “performance” a problem or is it editing?

Cindy Munford on June 11, 2014 at 9:17 PM

Chris Moody of Yahoo News!?!

Be sure to use lots of hand sanitizer after the show, MKH.

Probably all that metal but I like my place better than hers.

Cindy Munford on June 11, 2014 at 9:19 PM

After watching a few episodes, I came to the conclusion that Kennedy is more liberal than libertarian. I decided to stop watching after she said something that was so far on the progressive / statist / liberal side as it couldn’t be a misunderstanding, but more of a mindset.

LoganSix on June 11, 2014 at 9:19 PM

Bmore on June 11, 2014 at 9:14 PM

No, MKH is doing the right thing. Besides if she answered her she would probably get all excited and link it everywhere. Then complain.

Cindy Munford on June 11, 2014 at 9:20 PM

Cindy Munford on June 11, 2014 at 9:17 PM

Unbelievable, but never surprising anymore.

These so-called “journalistic” scum should be imprisoned for slander and lose all trust/audience (yeah, all 5 viewers) for using those tactics …

I saw that. Quite a few folks here were up Noahs ass over it. Do you think they will bother to acknowledge any of it. HeII no! Easier for them to slay the messenger. I am glad to have Noah on board. Allah has always received the same complaints. None of their complaints sway my opinion of either Noah or Allah. Noah is new here if over time I come to have a problem with him. I’ll simply read past his posts. Not sure why that is so hard for folks to do. There are many, many other blogs to choose from.

While you’re at it, study up on how to fix this thread.

If this thread was a World Cup soccer match, the hooligans from each team would be in a violent brawl in the stands, the ref would be unconscious on the turf, the players would be running for the locker room and it would be raining.

This is a hot mess … like a condensed version of every QOTD I have ever seen.

Noah answered my email. He appreciated the information and does think that it was deceptively edited but feels it doesn’t warrant an update since it is from the broadcast and that part is unedited. His call but that fact that MKH just brought it up on The Independents does not make me happy about the possibility of another conservative trashed because context is ignored.

Jaibones on June 11, 2014 at 9:43 PM

I do have trouble understanding Noahs posts sometimes. He formats them differently than everyone else does. If it’s snark, it makes it harder to see by not segregating it better.

He doesn’t break it in to chunks, except with qoutation makes in his sentences, instead of blockquoting it. And he also appears to use qoutation marks as sarc tags, so it gets confusing.

wolly4321 on June 11, 2014 at 9:44 PM

I can’t remember the name of the group, but here in Tucson they are gunning for fed money to put them up in out of business motels and apt complexes here in town.

It was front page in the Arizona Daily Star. Probably in the online version.

The only warehouses I know of in Nogales are for produce coming across, they are warehouses.
It’s not a verb they are just using.

They are going to spread them around.
