Let's say you think Neil Cavuto is at least minimally competent. That would mean you missed the interview he just did with Imogen Lloyd-Webber, the beautifully stupid daughter of Christopher Lloyd-Webber, star of Taxi and Back To The Future movies and composer of such Broadway hits as A Night At The Opera.
But it's not Imogen's stupidity that's in question. That's a given. What I'm talking about is Cavuto's own expert blend of stupidity, incompetence, and naivete all wrapped in such gross weakness as to make Bart Stupak envious.
The interview was to be a comparison of the current British health care system with ours and what it's about to become. Not only did Cavuto fail to challenge Webber on anything of consequence, he seemed almost accepting of everything she was saying in praise of the NHS and rationing.
So I know I've been rather quiet about the contempt I have for Cavuto, but that's now going to change. At his best, he's sickening and dimwitted. Now he's actually become a facilitator of sorts.
If you doubt that, have you seen how John McCain is either turning up everywhere or being quoted in many news stories? There's only one reason – the media, including Fox, is doing all it can to get McCain re-elected. You may not even have noticed, but now, I assume, you'll pay more attention. It's despicable, and when Fox does it, it's beyond outrageous.
In that context, take the way Cavuto started his show today… the interview was about the Arizona Immigration law and Cavuto had some typical fool spouting the usual inanities which he, Cavuto, challenged halfheartedly as I'm screaming, "Get that PIG off my screen, SCUMVUTO!"
But that's not the story. The story is about how Cavuto opened the interview – by saying that a group was appealing to… that's right, John McCain… to moderate his tough (ha-ha) stance on immigration. And after implying that McCain is a rock on the issue of stopping illegals, the host/Jackass didn't mention the Arizona Dirtbag again.
I had a gym teacher in grade school whom we all hated. His last name was Carillo, and my friend made up a song about him which I shall now borrow. I'm sure Buzz would be very pleased…
We hate Cavuto, rah, rah rah, rah, rah
We hate Cavuto, rah, rah rah, rah, RAH
We hate Cavuto, RAH, RAH, RAH, RAH, RAH
We hate him high, we hate him low
We hate Cavuto!
