Skip to comments.Can’t we aim higher than ‘Honey Boo Boo’? (By failed Spitzer co-host Kathleen Parker)

No one forced me, but I finally decided it was time to discover what all the business was about Honey Boo Boo.
Even though Ive made reference to the show featuring a former beauty tot, now 7, and her family, Id never actually watched a full episode. I still havent, but I watched enough to need a jaw adjustment.

Earth to Kathleen Parker: Honey Boo Boo is more palatable then you and the Whoremonger with whom you partnered.
Translation for Blondes: Honey Boo Boo is shooting higher than Parker-Spritzer.
This is Jerry Spinger nation.
Not only can we not aim higher, we should consider ourselves fortunate to even have her.
This sums up the media in one sentence.
I don't watch it, but I did read an article about the mother putting ALL the money away in trusts for her 5 kids and how their biggest splurge was a 2005 Expedition.
Anyone partnering with that creep Spitzer shouldn’t be complaining about ANYTHING in the media; it doesn’t get much lower than that.
Funny how Ms. Parker wasn’t shocked by her co-host’s exploits with prostitutes and his proclivities for deviant acts while serving as attorney general. Typical selective outrage from the left.
Somehow... Honey Boo Boo throwing out rolls of toilet paper is not the same as Shirley Temple's tap dancing. How far our culture has traveled. /sarc
Ah, another gun nut, huh? If someone dies, it's because of her threatening to shoot at targets.
Though Duck Dynasty is BY FAR the best “reality tv”, I sometimes tune in to Honey Boo-Boo.
So, that family isn’t like the rest of us. And the fact that they celebrated the illegit baby born with a flipper or something...ok, that’s wrong, but at least the daughter chose life over killing her baby.
They aren’t WT, as the Dad works for a living. Lots of family love and fun. And smart money management. I don’t have a problem with HBB - tune in to Kartrashians (a brothel disguised as a family) sometime. BIG difference.
Just my 2cents...
Sorry, Kathleen, no sale. When a smart, beautiful, virtuous woman was running for Vice President of our country, you were part of the crowd screaming for blood, because, darn it! how could someone not as good as you be getting so much attention?
Now you can direct your envy at Honey Boo Boo ... how can someone not as good as you be getting so much attention and money!?
It must be because only a few people in this dreadful, lower-class country are as Special as you and Elliot Spitzer.
I don’t know what is a Honey Boo Boo since we terminated our cable TV.
Saving $900 a year, $9000 in just 10 years.
And... NO MIND ROT.
and best of all, by far.....
No Obama Speeches, nor any Ministry of Truth “news casts”
do yourself a favor this year!
Gormless irony of the month award to 0dumb0 shill Kathleen Parker, who herself weighs in from perhaps the most putrid redoubt of cultural decay in America: The Washington Post "writers" group.
I've never seen ten seconds of Honey Boo Boo, but if KP hates it, it can't be all bad.
I was in second grade the year Kennedy was assassinated, just to give you an idea of my age. Even when I was young I could not understand all the talk in that era of Camelot and America’s royalty. We were different from those countries...”All men are created equal”...right? The more I see of the presence of these reality shows, the more I’m wondering whether or not it is propaganda to try to convince people that their lives do need to be governed by an elite class, because there are some out there that are just not to be trusted to control their own lives. There is an awful lot of arrogance on the left.
Much as I dislike Kathleen Parker, believe me-—it’s all bad.
I watched an episode out of curiosity, and my stomach literally turned. The family in the show enjoys flaunting bodily functions for the camera. The mother’s elbows are caked with dirt. They went to some kind of local “fair” where they bobbed for raw pigs’ feet with their mouths. And the kid who bears the title of Honey Boo-Boo is the most annoying kid I think I have ever seen.
Honey Boo-Boo and her family are tasteless vulgarians and are beyond annoying - but they are playing for the camera, and no one on the show has yet accessed a call girl.
The mother recently disclosed that she’s had all the money that they have earned from the show put into trust funds for the four daughters and the new granddaughter. The girls can’t touch it until they are 21. If this is true, she’s gone up a notch in my eyes. At least the children will eventually benefit from her exploitation of them.
Now who knows what Sugar Bear is getting from all this...
And that's the truth.
Lower-class entertainments have always been part of life. I don't think either "Honey Boo Boo" or the Kardashians are the end of the world. Snobby aristo-wannabes with a control complex are much more dangerous.
I haven't seen Honey Boo Boo, only read about it, but I got a kick out of an episode of "Bridezillas" that I saw at my parents' house, and I watched all the episodes of "My Fair Wedding" that were available on Netflix streaming.
I think it's funny how threads about how awful reality shows are draw dozens of posts saying, "Yeah, awful ... except this one and that one that I watch ... those are okay because (fill in reasons)."
Should you be using phrases like "aim higher" when Obama is trying to take everyone's guns away?
Honey Boo Boo show is not as idiotic as a number of shows of similar nature
Boo Boo and her family will take a lot of crap because they are white, Southern, rural, working-class.
Look at all the shows featuring Black Thugs and Black GangBangers....and no one dares to comment on those because “you’re a racist” if you do so. And all the White Guilt Liberals watch that crap because its “multi-cultural”
The HBB family may not be able to solve differential equations...but they sure are not the bottom end of the food chain.
After decades of education of American children by similarly ill-educated socialist union thugs, Honey Boo Boo is the highest peak of intelligence that most people are capable of understanding.
Wow, calling Honey Boo-Boo a dumb, exploitative show? HOW INSIGHTFUL! No one has EVER suggested this before. Other than about 100,000 other commentators. Months ago.
Honey Boo Boo show is not as idiotic as a number of shows of similar nature
My father would have considered that an excellent example of damning with faint praise.
Something ‘not as idiotic’ as something else seems by definition to be idiotic.
But I’m not going to condemn too loudly, I like watching the Walking Dead.
Being attracted to hookers is just another sexual orientation.
The only people who speak about “Honey Boo Boo” are urban leftists.
I am convinced the show was created for them. They watch this exaggerated and ridiculous show to simply get easily digested confirmation of their own warped ideas and prejudices about what life in “middle America” is like.
That's why so many people have heard of it. But I suspect more people in Middle America/Flyover Country watch the show than Harvard or Columbia professors or urban activists.
Three million viewers is a big hit for a cable show. If you can get one American out of one-hundred to watch the show you're a success, but it still means most people in all parts of the country the country aren't watching it.
Um, I don't think they actually do watch those shows.
Which might be one reason why they don't comment on them.
Today on Cavuto, he played a clip of Honey bo bo’s mother outlining the trusts she established to manage the daughter’s income for when she was older. Honey said some good words commending the saving actions.
The family lives on the fathers income and clips coupons and is generally thrifty.
Niel issued the ultimate insult to Lew by announcing that Honey Boo Boo would make a better secretary of treasury than Mr Lew
Since we aimed so low with Obama, I don’t see why we should discriminate against Honey Boo Boo.
>>. I have to agree with you about the Kardashians though. I happened to walk into the room when an episode was on yesterday and couldn’t believe what I was hearing. If you are going to behave that way, please keep it to yourself!! Am I wrong in thinking there is something sick in the minds of those who have to broadcast their sexuality so blatantly? <<
It goes beyond the tv show. If I was saddled with that last name, I would have changed it and lived a low profile life in shame (after all, it was their dear daddy who helped OJ Simpson get away with butchery). Instead, they flaunt it, while the Mama pimps out her kiddies on national tv. That people actually watch them, think they are newsworthy, and buy their merchandise...America is done. Disgusting.
I saw that stunt with the toilet paper.
If I ever did that as a child I would have been spanked and sent to my room.
That child is a brat.
Sugar Bear’s brother Lee,better known as ‘Uncle Poodle’,is an HIV infected faggot.
I will admit I have watched it,mostly out of boredom.
It’s garbage and I damn near vomited when I saw the part in which they belched in each other’s faces.
I haven’t watched it but I read that she has an Uncle Poodle who has HIV.
Lord, thank you for letting me miss that.....
I read it on AOL.
Of course the Lefties on HuffPo are singing this guy’s praises.
Yes,heterosexuals get infected with HIV but not at the same rate.
How can anyone think sodomy between two men is OK and just as natural as vaginal sex?
