In her review of the 8/28 Event led by TV and radio host Glenn Beck, Ms. Parker made sport of the disease of addiction and its most effective treatment, Alcoholics Anonymous.
Beck’s history of alcoholism and addiction is familiar to any who follow him. He has made no secret of his past and is quick to make fun of himself. As he once said: “You can get rich making fun of me. I know. I’ve made a lot of money making fun of me.”
Self-mockery — and cash — seems to come easily to him.

For Beck, addiction has been a defining part of his life…. His emotional, public breakdowns are replicated in AA meetings in towns and cities every day.
The full price of her Faustian bargain with the Washington Post/CNN elites is now clear. To ascend to the TV throne in D.C. from the dregs of middle class South Carolina, Ms. Parker must stoop to a level of mockery heretofore reached only by Keith Olbermann. It recalls the words of attorney for the Army, Joseph Welch, on June 9, 1954, to Senator McCarthy.
Until this moment, Senator, I think I never really gauged your cruelty or your recklessness. Let us not assassinate this lad further, senator. You have done enough. Have you no sense of decency?
Ms. Parker’s honest answer would have to be, “No.”
*Ms. Parker’s new middle name comes from the musical, “Damn Yankees,” in which Joe Boyd, a middle-aged real estate agent and fan of the Washington Senators sells his soul to the Devil to become Joe Hardy, a long-ball slugger who helps them catch the Yankees in the pennant race.
Washington, D.C. – The tax advisory and law firm of Dewey, Cheatham and Howe is pleased to announce three new partners have joined the firm.
Timothy Geithner, a specialist in “gross-up” tax harvesting will join as senior partner in the tax group. Managing partner Hughey Dewey said, “We are delighted to get Tim on board, as there is no one else on this planet who could do this job as well. ”
Thomas Daschle, who spent years in the U.S. Senate overseeing the ethics of his super-lobbyist wife, will join the Healthcare group as a non-lawyer partner. About Daschle, Dewey said, “It is not every day you can get an expert on non-standard compensation, and we got one who isn’t even a lawyer. He understands the difference between ‘pay to play’ and ‘friends with perks’ as almost nobody else in the country. We are delighted to welcome Tom to our firm as a senior partner.”
Charles Rangel, a lifetime representative for Harlem in the U.S. House of Representatives, will join the firm as liason to Congress. Rangel will retain his seat in Congress while representing the law firm’s clients. Explained Rangel, “I got sick and tired of the revolving door we have in this town, so I just propped it open. Anybody who has a problem believing I cannot represent the people of the United States of America while lobbying Congress on behalf of Dewey, Cheatham and Howe is a racist, right-wing whacko, and I will subpoena him before my Committee to testify under oath.”
With these three senior partners on board, the firm of Dewey, Cheatham and Howe is uniquely positioned to maximize the political effectiveness of a select list of clients. Having successfully addressed issues of conflict of interest and tax evasion, these new partners are ready to help others facing similar issues.
