NYT: Jay Carney Made an ĎAngry Phone Callí to Fox Exec. Following Anti-Obama Video
The Blaze ^ | June 21, 2012 | Madeleine Morgenstern

Posted on 06/22/2012 1:01:39 PM PDT by QT3.14

White House press secretary Jay Carney made an “angry phone call” to a Fox News executive after the network aired a scathing video review last month of President Barack Obama’s first three years in office, the New York Times reported.

According to the Times, Carney told Michael Clemente, Fox News’ senior vice president for news, that the video had crossed the line even for “Fox & Friends,” the morning show where it aired. Two unnamed Democrats reportedly told the newspaper about the call, described as a “private conversation.”

Jay Carney. Did you know Carny is slang for a Carnival worker? It fits at the White House circus.

” that the video had crossed the line “

Meaning it had too much truth in it.

Looking at him, I’d think it was slang for peter-puffing, knob-gnashing, bucket of crap.

Guess I was wrong.

True. Carneys are the drifters who travel with the carnival, set up the tents and the rides, and the midway games, And hang around trying to hit on local girls until it's time to strike the tents and move on. Generally degenerate punks, and Kid Carney is well named.

Or is it AAD: Amateurism Amplified by Desperation.

I think I like that better.

The only carney’s that I’m interested in hearing from is the new Rush song Carnies from Clockwork Angels.

This one, though, has what is clearly a Breton name ~ Ker ~ ney ~ meaning some darned thing fur shur.

Did you know those people had at least 5 different spelling conventions going simultaneously throughout the Middle Ages ~ and even today their names go all over the place.

A Welsh fellow told me some time back that when his father was a kid they could still take a boat over to Brittany and find people they could understand, but since then public education has taken over and they have become just as incomprehensible as the French.
