    Jimmy Kimmel reveals the price hes paid for being a political hack

    In the April issue of O magazine, Kimmel unburdened himself to Oprah Winfrey:

    I dont know if it was scary, but it was uncomfortable, and its not something I looked forward to, he admits. I definitely felt a sense of relief when it was over. Kimmel notes that his candidness did have a downfall. According to polls Ive seen, it has cost me commercially. Thats not ideal, but I wouldnt change anything I said.


    I know my job is, for the most part, to entertain people and make them laugh. That said, if I can be selfish every once in a while and talk about something serious thats important to me, then I do want to take that opportunity, Kimmel tells Winfrey. But I dont want to abuse my position. I pick my battles. Ninety percent of the time, Ill joke around, but some of the jokes, I hope, make people think.

    Up north, we say "It couldn't happen to a nicer guy." Down south, we say "Well bless his little heart."

    The good thing about being a grumpy old man is that I no longer even pay attention to whiny entertainers. There are like a bazillion channels on my satellite dish, and with this new remote thingy, I don't even have to leave the couch.

    I'm a pretty good electrician. Plumbing, not so much. I've learned to stick to what I am good at, and leave the plumbing to the plumbers.

    His job is, PERIOD, to entertain people by acting like a circus monkey.

    He is not expected to be intelligent, and he has shown that he is not when he alienated all the normal people in the country with his fascist tirades.

    Trump has been President for 537 days and Ruth Bader Ginzberg hasn't had the decency to die. What's up with that?

    LBJ was a Democrat. I wish more Democrats could be like him. He's dead now.

    The fall is farther and takes longer for those at a professional pinnacle, but self-Dixie-Chicking has predictable consequences.

    Kimmel's effect on Trump's popularity is somewhere between zero and slightly increasing it.

    Kimmel need to retire for 5 years and watch 8 hours of classic comedy - Laurel and Hardy, Marx Brothers, The Three Stooges, Abbott and Costello, Red Skelton, to name a few - to learn what funny is.

    My TV is next to my computer, it is mostly background noise that fails to register, Unless the view, him or that other guy comes on. Instant channel change, to Anything else.
    Yep, I'd wrap that in bacon!

    I propose the term "red henning" henceforth be used to refer to any stupid business decisions.

    the same for me. I'll tell you, I would hear that smug thug Obama's VOICE come on the tv, I'd run to the room from where I was in the house to shut it up. lol

    /shake my head......

    I'm sorry, but, I really do not think I need advice on the proper treatment of women, from this guy:


    Al Swearengen: What's your partner so mad about all the time?
    Sol Star: He's not mad.
    Al Swearengen: He's got a mean way of being happy.
