Slow news day in August - Updated: McCaughey resigns

Ah, our DC media are like kids with a new toy. But to be fair, since the MSM started hiring based on looks instead of knowledge, they probably really don't know. They likely really are too young to remember when anatomical terms were considered impolite.

On a different note, I imagine Betsy McCaughey may have been ready to wee wee her pants when Jon Stewart asked her to find the page in the health care bill that makes end-of-life consultations mandatory. Part One of the interview is what aired. I understand Part Two didn't get on the TV. Haven't watched either myself yet but am archiving here so I can see it later. I hear it was great.

Update: Wow. The power of The Daily Show. This just in. McCaughey resigns her $30K a year gig at a medical device company just hours after the show was taped.

We're still addicted to baby talk - maybe more than ever. Walter Kronkite didn't tweet or twitter, nor did he refer to breasts as "boobs" or to shit as "poop."

When we do use more anatomical terms it's because we like to giggle like third graders over how wicked we're being. We still think it's oh-so-cool to reference "sucking" instead of any other word for being unsuitable or bad. It makes us feel grown up like the big kids in the 8th grade.
