Pat Sajak Has Opinions And You Canít Handle It
Acculturated ^ | May 27, 2014

Posted on 05/27/2014 4:13:47 PM PDT by SMGFan

Admittedly, it was a slow news day. But last Thursday CNN, Time, Politico, the New York Daily News, the Washington Post, the Chicago Tribune, and many other outlets all wrote stories about a single tweet from venerable game show host Pat Sajak. Before we proceed, send your children out of the room and lock your delicate sensibilities in the closet. I’d append the appropriate trigger warnings, but I don’t even know where to begin with something this shocking:pat_sajak_climate_tweet

You’re right funny stuff from Pat. Love this one:

“Grocery checkout agony: do I destroy forests. strangle helpless sea creatures or use my own bacteria-laden containers?”

I remember a conversation with a very well known Los Angeles radio personality years ago, and he told me that Pat Sajak was one of the funniest people he’d ever met.

Most people don’t know that he’s vice chair of the Hillsdale College board of trustees. He’s also about as outgoing as they come. He engages everyone on twitter.

Ruth Buzzi is another fun follow.

Pat Sajak should be banned from having Vanna White turn letters for him for a year, and instead have Nancy Pelosi turn the letters.

Wait...that will kill ratings!

He had one for a short while on FOX. Unfortunately didn't last that long, but he's absolutely wonderful. Very funny in that dry sarcastic way.

Another one of his climate tweets:

Even though I told him it was settled folklore, my young nephew remains a Tooth Fairy denier. (Those kids today!)

I'm sure I read it on FR, but someone told a story of when Pat was a lowly weatherman, he was asked to emcee some banquet.

"How much does it pay?" He asked.

"$50 and you get a free meal."

"Ok, what time, and where is it?"

Classic Sajak.

They can dish out the false racist BS, but they can’t take it....then, they are too dumb to even get the whole point of the tweet was to point out how stupid and dishonest they are - they sure fell into the stupid part.

Ok, I read it over and over boop. I admit to being slow witted. I don't get it. Help me if you will.

Sure.

Pat Sajak was a lowly paid, but trained meteorologist in the '70s.

Someone asked him to do a gig. It didn't pay well, but Pat jumped at the chance to show his chops.

So the "funny part" is that Sajak would do whatever he could to be in the spotlight.

He had no idea that it would lead to bigger and better things like Wheel of Fortune.

Sorry if my post seemed obtuse. I thought it was obvious.

Did anyone else not get my point?
