Rush Limbaugh on Ronan Farrow: 'He's Never Done Anything; He's Never Gotten Good at Anything'
Newsbusters.org ^ | March 8, 2014 | Scott Whitlock

Posted on 03/08/2014 3:42:50 PM PST by Kaslin

Rush Limbaugh on Thursday mocked new MSNBC host Ronan Farrow, dismissing the 26-year-old, saying, "He's never done anything. He's never gotten good at anything." MSNBC President Phil Griffen explained to the New York Times how he was originally wowed by Farrow, who is either the son of Woody Allen or Frank Sinatra: "Within 20 minutes, I wanted to hire him...He got it." 

Limbaugh translated, "In other words, if you're young, if you're charismatic, if you're good-looking, if you're hip, if you're cool, if you're glib -- if you have all the superficial traits that we can say you have -- then that will trump experience, knowledge, humility, and hard work."

Apparently, he is a smart kid. Graduated college at 15, Ivy League law school grad by 20ish ... he is only 26 now.

At least he isn’t writing multiple autobiography’s about struggles with his father, or some dumb $hit ...

Maybe he can sing.

Sinatra was his mother’s stud.

His real name is Satchel Konigsberg.

He’s very handsome and I guess quite smart. Too bad he’s a liberal idiot.

Well sure, he’s not qualified to do anything, but when has that ever prevented libs from being appointed or elected to high positions or offices?

I saw the title, ‘He’s never done anything, he’s never gotten good at at anything’, and I just assumed it was another reference to the interloper from Kenya (... or Indonesia ... or wherever he was spawned).

that could be said of most of the commentators/pundits aka “Fox News Analysts” on the air. Juan Williams has a BA in Philosophy and has spent his whole career as a journalist, for example, so that qualifies him as an expert on nothing, other than perhaps the relative merits of various word processors.

So young Farrow is follow the same no-hothing, done-nothing path of Obama and countless others. At least he doesn’t have any real power.

Why isn’t his name Ronan ALLEN? Woody was far more entertaining than what’s-her-name.

How do you manage to turn a piece on an MSNBC host into a bash on FOX News? I agree Juan is an idiot, but I think he’s there to illustrate liberal stupidity, like Bob Beckel and Alan Colmes.

According to Wikipedia:

He was given the surname “Farrow” to avoid a family with “one child named Allen amidst two Farrows and six Previns.”

Um...ok..

To me, he looks just like Frank Sinatra. No way is he Woody Allen’s son.

He looks exactly as his Mama Mia would look, were she born a man. Do some research if you are too young to have seen her during that Sinatra marriage. After Mia left Peyton Place, one of the first night time soaps, she chopped her long hair off, resulting in something the english model Twiggy would have worn. Back then, when Mia had her crewcut or pixie look, she and Ronan could’ve been Fraternal Twins. I won’t even start discussing the Oedipal connotations that surround their present relationship.

Humility? From Rush Limbaugh? Now, that's laughable.

I think it was Ava Gardner who said when Sinatra married Mia Farrow—”I always knew he wanted to go to bed with a boy”?

I did a search, but I couldn’t find anything about him having BA in Philosphy. However there was another black Williams, on Fox news who has a doctorate in Philosphy Perhaps you’re thinking of him

I remember when she said that. It was followed by nervous laughter, then no follow up questions. Everybody assumed it was due to sour grapes on Ava’s part. Back then, not many people publically accused someone of being gay even as a joke, unless the two of you were really good friends, or you were a star in your own right, as was Ava.

In the lower photo, given the bright lighting, the pupils of the eyes are hugely and unnaturally dilated.

Uh...bright lighting cause the normal iris to close down, become smaller and limit the amount of light entering the eye.

Dilation means the widening of the eye in darkness to admit more light enabling us to see in dimmer light. The wider the iris opens the more light is admitted.

One of the checks for concussive head trauma is to quickly shine a bright light briefly at the eye in average light. Normal healthy reaction is a rapid closing followed by fairly quick dilation back to the diameter prior to the light flash.

Dilated irises in bright light in Hollywood generally indicate usage of drugs.

Re: hugely and unnaturally dilated pupils.

That degree of dilation is almost certainly chemically induced. The photo must have been taken right after an opthamologist visit (or something).

I never did think that Judy Garland AND her daughter were good singers. Screaming a song isn't singing to me, even if it is on key.

I've been an opera fan for decades. In my opinion, THEY have voices worth listening to. Very few others do.
