The sedulous coverage of Michal Jackson's death drove me to bed early last night.

Happy Friday!

Liberals sure are sedulous in their efforts to turn the USA into a third world country.

Michale Jackson will no longer be sedulously chasing 8 year old boys. I heard he died from choking on an 8 year old weiner.

I went to bed early too, ti. When I woke up, VH-1 was running non-stop MJ videos. Old ones, some featuring Janet Jackson before she got plastic surgery. Fox News wasn’t much better. All MJ.

I spent the pre-dawn morning vacuuming up dog hair instead.

I read for about half an hour and crashed. that bore-athon was awful. hubby and I swore shep must have had a man crush on MJ.

Yeah! Fox was rerunning Shep before 5am. His sedulous idolization of the King of Pedophiles Pop was nauseating.

Entertainment Tonight and Inside Edition obviously were put to bed prior to the announcement of MJ -— both shows were almost entirely devoted Farrah Fawcett, no mention whatsoever of the other.

oh my GOD< he was in full on bawl last night. Poor Bret Baer was usurped by Shemp’s sobbing coverage, and he went on right through Oreilly’s hour til Jerry Rivers took over at 9pm and i think Shemp was back on at midnight. good grief.

He had some great music back in the day and he looked relatively NORMAL at that point and hadn’t degenerated into the ridiculous freak that he ended up. he actually looked like a black MALE back then, instead of the white woman he was when he died.

Good! Farrah deserved the limelight......at least she died fighting cancer. I am not sure I want to know what brought on MJ’s death.

While everyone was so concerned about the diversion the Mark Sanford trainwreck provided from the Obams sedulous promotion of socialized medicine, cap and trade etc. Markie Poo is surely relieved to have had Michael Jackson conveniently croak so as to lighten the scrutiny given to his imbroglio. He benefits, much as condit did from the tragedy of 9/11.

F&F had Casey Stegall on at 2 am LA time and he looked bored. I know Casey’s dad. He lives and works locally. He used to be a demolition man.

you have to wonder how they feel about the preemption. Mr O’s ego can’t be happy with the all shemp all the time turn of events. he normally takes fridays off in the summer anyway, so he would have been off tonight.

If a Republican was still in the White House, there would be reports that MJ was offed to divert attention from Sanford, just like the Kennedys had Marilyn Monroe offed to divert attention from the buildup in SE Asia.

An Emergency Room source at UCLA hospital said Jackson aides told medics he had collapsed after an injection of potent Demerol — similar to morphine.

A Jacko source said: “Shortly after taking the Demerol he started to experience slow shallow breathing.

“His breathing gradually got slower and slower until it stopped.

“His staff started mouth-to-mouth and an ambulance was called which got there in eight minutes “But found he was in full respiratory arrest, no breathing and no pulse. They started full CPR and rushed him to hospital.

Source.

is 8 min a respectable response time? wonder if they called for the amb promptly? the fact that he had really not done much to prepare for this mega tour coming up in London, almost seems to me like he knew he wouldn’t be performing there and was looking for a back door out of it. i think he found one.

we are volunteers coming from home.....if we are not in route within ten minutes they will tone out another agency. usually we are in route in less. I live about a four minute drive. we then have to travel to the scene.

I am sure they called a professional agency though, and it might have been 8 minutes away.

saw footage of the argentinian honey on F&F this AM. apparently she was a reporter at some point. not even remotely worth what he caused to pursue her, IMO. not that ANYONE would have been, but she is very def not “all that” even without the bag of chips.

Haven’t these cretins heard of NARCAN? Sounds like BS to me. There was supposedly his personal physician right there.

So they can cover Farrah and Micheal Jackson’s deaths ..... But it is insedulous how little they cover the facts behaind so-called the 1200 page 1.3 trillion dollar tax-and trade boondoggle.

Hmmmn. One billion dollars per page - for a law that nobody’s read?
