PLEASE, DR. PHIL, SHUT UP
New York Post ^ | 10/07/04 | Linda Stasi

Posted on 10/07/2004 3:27:43 AM PDT by kattracks

October 7, 2004 -- IF there is any mercy left in the universe, Dr. Phil — who is such a giant gasbag that he should be flying over Macy’s at Thanksgiving — is finished doing presidential candidate interviews. Can’t somebody sneak in some kind of constitutional amendment or something? Yesterday it was John and Teresa Heinz Kerry’s chance to be grilled by Phil at their house about what they thought — mostly about Dr. Phil’s fantastic

parenting ideas. How political wives don’t become professional divorcees, I don’t know. It’s one thing to be forced to eat rubber chicken at nightly fund-raisers — but it’s another to be forced to walk through piles of bull day after day. Then it was Mrs. Phil’s chance to suck up, saying how she just knows she and Teresa

had lots in common because they both raised sons. (She said she had lots in common with Laura Bush last week!) Phil, who might not have as much in common with Teresa, managed to bring up the fact that Teresa is very outspoken (mostly about being outspoken I think), which she agreed that she, indeed, was. Not exactly what you’d call a Barbara Walters moment. Then he said (about 47,000 times) to John Kerry, “You get

it” and — when he wasn’t oncamera — the ever-popular, “He gets it.”

I suffered through years of Barney when my kids were younger-- Thank the Lord that I don't have to put up with my wife listening to this Dr. Phil assclown.

Man! I haven't eaten yet this AM... now I feel so sick in my stomach, I wonder if I can!

What bothers me is that the "undecided" voters are ones who have nothing to do all day but watch this crap.
They male decisions based on important things such as hair, gesticulation, smiles, hugs.....


Pardon me while I wretch!

I saw this Dr Phil show yesterday. Well..okay..I TRIED to watch it. It was pathetic, and thats being kind.

How interesting that yesterday on Oprah..she was having 30 year old women from various countries tell what their lives were like.

Of course she had to have one from Iraq. And of course..she was angry. No electricity..rape and pillaging in the streets..yada..yada.

Just coincidence? I think not.

He even ended by giving him the ultimate Phil compliment: “He really blooms where he’s planted.” Can’t somebody shut this guy up?

The only reason Kerry "blooms" is because of all the manure supplied by Dr. Phil.

(Too bad Dr. Phil can't just go back to saying "Hey Now" on the Larry Sanders Show where he belongs.)

A great wrap up to the article.

"Undecided voters"

I think this election the "undecideds" are the national measurement of stupidity. By this time people either approve of Bush or hate him and have made up their minds to vote accordingly.

I guess its possible that "undecideds" are narcisists and enjoy the spotlight of being able to take a third position in the election debate.

Funny...

I thought Dr. Phil was Barney!

Notice how you never see Dr. Phil and Barney in the same place?

Coincidence?... I don't think so. *Grins*

The image of "undecideds" has forever changed since Dennis Miller's description on Leno the other night. It was that funny.

They [make] decisions based on important things such as hair, gesticulation, smiles, hugs.....

I heard a talk-show caller say a few months ago that John Kerry should win the presidency "because he and Teresa as just sooooooooo glamorous!" (breathless adoration) The host (Rush) pressed her on why Kerry should be president: policies? Couldn't answer. Senate accomplishments? Couldn't answer. Promises as to where he would lead America? Couldn't answer. But John and Teresa "should be couple of the year," the gal said, and thus Kerry deserved to be president. (What makes me shudder is that people like this actually go to the polls and vote!)

Oh I missed that and love Dennis Miller. I did see a funny piece on CNN about a show host who went out and got undecideds into the studio ,,it was a comedy show on CNN, the morning show or something. Then when she got them in the room, the host went off on them ending with S... or get off the pot. It was hysterical and the camera shots of the undecideds were priceless.

I think undecideds are attention seekers.

I think they are actually people for whom voting is one of the hardest things their minds will deal with it and they actually do wait untill the last minute. They are waiting for dirt to be dug up or they really do have a hard time making decisions.

You really need to find a clip of that. (from memory) "They're like those people with the pink spoons in the ice-cream shops, sampling all 50 flavors, then settling on vanilla..."

Sorry, very "html challenged" (though I've learned alot here at FR)....It would be greatly surprising to me if one of our oh-so-talented community has not already posted the clip on another thread. Well worth the look-see, I'm series.

Yes they do.

And to rub salt in that wound, I usually find myself in line at the polls standing in front of, or behind, just such people. You know before you even start voting that your vote has been "cancelled" by the likes of them.

Ok, maybe it's me, but has anyone else noticed that Lil' Johnny BooBoo (that's, John Edwards) sounds very much like Dr. Phil, perhaps even more ignorant.

The way he pronounces "YOOOOOUUUUUU" is a spot-on match for Dr. Phil.

And, Dr. Phil's comments are just about as insightful. Dr. Phil has the flair for stating the obvious.

For example, here's two Dr. Phil quotes that I'm "amazed" at...

"If you don't want to mess things up, stop messing around!"
"In all your life, there's only 1 person you can care for: YOOOUUUUU".

It's painful to listen to both of these guys.

Well, the good news is YOUR vote is cancelling out THEIR vote.

I can; here's how:

Right after the waking up part?... hit the "off" button.

Doesn't help much. Technically, that puts me in category of "voting against" something.
