“InÂ life you need either inspiration or desperation.” (TonyÂ Robbins)
Â Lacking a shred of inspiration, Piers Stefan Pughe-Morgan (Piers Morgan), the replacement flop for CNN’s previous flop Lawrence Leibel Harvey Zeiger (Larry King), has been in a ratings freefall ever since he took over for Softball Larry two years ago.Â Knowing his CNN days are almost as limited as Soledad O’Brien’s, Piers isn’t quite as insipid as King andÂ tries to compensate for his lack of inspiration with desperate viewpoints proving the truth of Thoreau’s observation that “What is called resignation isÂ confirmed desperation.”Â
Of course, Ted Turner’s Cable News Network itself has been on the ratings ropes ever since the Fox News Channel demonstrated that the public preferred fair and balanced news rather than the liberal distortionsÂ on CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, and NBC et al. but, even so “Piers Morgan Tonight” has set all new records for viewer disdain.Â
Seriously,Â since “Piers Morgan Tonight”Â wallowsÂ at the bottom of the cable ratings heap and has nowÂ been beaten byÂ Logo TVâ€™s “RuPaulâ€™s Drag Race” by 20,000 viewers, can Piers’ television oblivion be far behind?Â He may think that some day he will beat Bill O’ReillyÂ but that willÂ only happen if he can climb out of his loo.
Â Known for his rudeness and various feuds across the pond, for his involvement in the Brit phone hacking scandal, for banning guests he didn’t like,Â for being the object of a massive petition to have him deported, and forÂ Thursday’sÂ *ss-sucking exchange with Chelsea Handler, Piers Morgan is easily the worstÂ thing out ofÂ England since the tax on tea.Â
An avid gun-phobic Twitterer, the twice-married, 47 year old MorganÂ recently tweetedÂ ”One day you’re the cock of the walk, the next aÂ feather duster” and such gems as “If more guns make America safer, as
@NRA claims, how come it has the most guns AND most gun crime of any developed country in the world?” “I think I need to go to Texas and discuss guns with people there,” and “I want to see Wayne LaPierre now look Gabby Giffords in the eye–and tell her the ONLY answer to America’s gun violence is MORE guns.”Â (https://twitter.com/piersmorgan)
Using CAPS mustÂ give Morgan the illusion that he isÂ worth being heard as does spouting outright falsehoods and twisted points of view.
–CNN’sÂ British import is delusional in thinking he was ever “the cock of the walk” (a Brit expression for a guy who feels he is more important than other people) and comparing himself to a “feather duster” is an insultÂ to feather dusters.
–As for discussing guns with Texans, he should be prepared to show he understands how firearms work and that they save lives far more often than they end them.
–And he should be aware thatÂ his hero’sÂ adopted hometown sports extremely stringent gun laws yetÂ Chicago is suffering throughÂ never-before-seen levels of gun violence and gun crime over the last year, on schedule to rack up more homicides than the total number of U.S. troop killings in Afghanistan in 2012 withÂ more than 500 murders.Â Gun-controlled Chicago hasÂ already had 40 murders in 2013 including the murder of Hadiya Pendleton, a 15-year-old girl who attendedÂ her presidentâ€™s inauguration.
Would the British feather duster look Gabby Giffords in the eye and tell her the ONLY answer to America’s gun violenceÂ is Chicago-style prohibitions and tell the relatives of this year’s 40 Chicago victims that gun controls work?
Â Stefan Pughe-Morgan (Piers Morgan) is a typical left-wing moron who believes the dangerous, discreditedÂ myth that taking guns out of the hands of responsible gun-owners will result in fewer murders by deranged people who should have been institutionalized long before they had the chance to massacre others.Â WeÂ could ship him back to Great Britain if not for the fact the Brits don’t want him either.Â
