Get The Widow On The Set

So here's what you do. This works best if you have one of those remote controls with a button that allows you to switch back and forth to the last channel you were watching.

You flip back and forth between Rita Cosby on MSNBC and Nancy Grace on CNN Headline News. At the end, whichever one induces you to throw more garbage at your own television set is the winner.

Last night, Cosby won by hair (okay, to be technically precise it was a hairball that the cat had coughed up) due to her comical attempts to simulate empathy after showing clips of family members of the BTK killer's victims.

It must be noted, however, that it's possible she only won because attitudinal bimbo Grace had some other attitudinal bimbo (someone named Jane Velez-Mitchell) filling in for her last night. The fill-in made Geraldo Rivera look dignified and restrained in comparison, thus making a very strong bid for my hurled trash. It could have easily gone the other way, especially if Grace had been there.

Meanwhile over on CNN, Larry King also had the night off. They actually had a potted plant filling in for him. It was about the same.
