Is It A Wrap?

There’s an old saying in politics that you “don’t want to get caught in bed with a dead girl or a live boy”.  Now actor Kevin Spacey only, plays a President on the Neflix TV show ‘House of Cards’ but they obviously forgot to tell him that one.  So it looks like he and his show are getting a one way ticket to Palooka Ville.  Or as they say in show biz, it’s a wrap.

And Harveywood is breaking out all over.  Everyday some new actress, actor or former child star comes forward with horrid stories of abuse.  If this keeps up, the American people might start to think bad things about Hollywood and the people who run it.  OMG!

And it’s not just confined to Hollywood.  Mark Halperin author of ‘Game Change’ and wise guy politico commentator all these years has gotten caught up in Harveywood too.  Seems he hasn’t’ been able to keep his hands to himself and all kinds of women are coming out of the woodwork to claim he’s sexually harassed them over the years.  So he’s been fired by NBC News, MSNBC News and HBO.  They are all shocked over there at NBC News, MSNBC News and HBO by the way.  And, Mika of ‘Morning Joe’ fame said that she and Joe had their “hearts break” for Mark Halperin who is, or was their buddy.  Guess Joe and Mika are shocked too.  But we also guess that the days of Halperin’s face being on Morning Joe and everywhere else across the Wide World of Talking Heads, is over too.  We’d say it’s a wrap but the News isn’t show biz.  Or is it?  Yeah, it’s a wrap.

And Paul Manafort was indicted in the Russians hacked the 2016 Presidential election or Kremlinghazi, as we will call it from now on.  But it seems Manafort was a sleazy business man a few years back and he laundered money with the Ukrainians and that’s what the indictments are for.  But no Russians!  Doesn’t’ this Mueller guy get it?  We want to know how the Russians hacked the election!  We want hacking and Russians!  It’s not about money laundering and Ukrainians!  We don’t care about no, stinkin’ Ukrainians!  It’s about the Russians!  We want Russians!  And, it’s not a wrap, until we have Russians!

    Rest easy, Sir Don. The Russians are coming.

  • Richard the IVth, we were able to uncover that Jared Kushner has been to the Russian Tea Room on 57th Street between 7th and 6th Avenues and more than once. But that’s all we could find so maybe we’re just a little frustrated over our own inabilities here. But we want Russians!

  • Don, I’m glad you’re on the job here, because it’s hard to tell the Ukrainian from the Uranium without a scorecard….and even the scorecard is probably fake news. If I may make an observation, however, I think KREMLINGATE has a better ring to it and is easier to say than “Kremlinghazi, but since no one has to actually pronounce it, I suppose there’s no point in pushing the point.

    Die dulci fruere.

    Abeo.

  • Muse, you make an excellent point on Kremlingate. It sounds tough, guff and Russian. But as Richard the IVth and I discussed before gates have been used so much that we thought them passe. We decided to try and use ghazi for everything. We’ll have to look into this further. We kind of like the wood as in Harveywood but that might be relegated to scandals of a sexual nature due to the implied pun.

  • Don,

    When I studied psychology in college, the text we used in abnormal psych class had a whole chapter devoted to the mental instability and aberration constituted by Hollywood. So, guess our prof was just way ahead of his time with that! Chickens coming home to roost. 🙂 (It didn’t indicate that it would spread like a fungus, but maybe in light of today’s events that should be considered a possibility?)

  • Mark,

    Do you mean the hyper sexuality, the inability to understand borders and boundaries, the poor impulse control and other inappropriate behavior like recreational drugs and DUI? Or wait is it the need to tell a story with unending violence all the time? I think you guys were way ahead of your time. Sadly though I think the whole Harveywood thing will peter out (puns intended) and it will be back to normal or back to abnormal for Hollyweird. They’ll just learn to cover it up a little better.

    Don
