A Very Modest Request
Could we possibly have a moratorium on coverage of the Paul McCartney-Stumpy McGoldigger* divorce involving lame puns on Beatles' song titles? I just saw Norah O'Donnell trot out "Can't Buy Me Love," "We Can Work It Out," and "Penny Lane" in the span of about 3.5 minutes. Joe Scarborough seems to have a contractual obligation to mention the "Marital Misery Tour" twice in every show. MSNBC is relatively --- repeat: relatively --- watchable, but my guess (not having and not planning to watch them) that CNN and Fox are better on this score. The former, because their average viewer likely conceives of Paul McCartney as a goddamn punk kid, the latter because their average viewer likely conceives of McCartney as a goddamn red commie.
*This appellation is not mine, but rather belongs to one of Don Imus' paid sycophants (I'm not sure which; actually, I can't tell one apart from another). Still, I like it.
