Superstition XXVI

You might think I'd write a blog post about the ludicrous halftime show of Super Bowl XLIX or the pre-game travesty with it's strange cast of characters or the advertisements. Maybe the Presidents lame duck pregame interview deserves a few remarks. I should comment on the insufferable commentary during the game by Chris Collinsworth. But I'd like to take you back, dear reader, to a Super Bowl long, long ago and it's long tail reverberations for the USA. It was a time of happiness and relief - The Redskins were dominant in the NFL and no one complained about their mascot, the Soviets were defeated and Marxism was disorganized and in retreat, Islamic terrorism was something that happened somewhere else - the future looked bright.

There was one humorous "scandal" rocking the Democrat Party because one of their prospective candidates had been accused of having an affair with the fetching Jennifer Flowers. It's hard to believe now, but this news was about to sink Bill Clinton's dream of becoming President (and sink the dreams of his wife too*). Even though everyone inside the DC political culture knew the allegation  was true - and that includes the journalists and news readers for the networks - there was a sense within Democrat establishment that extraordinary measures must be employed to save this guys bacon. CBS's award winning "news show" 60 minutes is part of that Democrat establishment so they inserted a special 10 minute episode right after the Super Bowl so that all of America could watch this.


Don Hewitt - "Listen Jim, Mike Wallace won't do it, he likes Bob Kerry who thinks your guys a dirtbag."
James Carville - "Shoot Don, I don't care what Mike Wallace thinks. I don't want him for the interview anyway."
Don Hewitt - "Well, who do you want then Lesley Stahl?"
James Carville - "Damn it, are you trying to piss me off? We're trying to win the female vote man not have our candidate burned at the stake. We want Steve Croft."
Don Hewitt - "Steve Croft?"
James Carville - "Yes, Steve Croft, we like him."

Now I think we know the reason why - He likes his mistress to dress like Laura Bush (what a freak).
