A tragedy in Kmart

Palin and Fox, it's just a start
because I think it'll be the start of a beautiful friendship.
It's not a coincidence that news also crossed the wire later Monday
that Simon Cowell was leaving Fox's 'American Idol.'
This first year on Fox News is merely a test run, an audition, for
the real gig. Sure it only lasts a couple or few months of the year,
but American Idol brings in 30-plus million viewers a show, twice a
Palin is a star, that's undeniable.
Why aim for the presidency? That world of politics only brings out
her flaws because she has to play nice with others and she's not all
the friendly and open. (She could use some lessons from L. Brooks
Patterson on getting in front of stories and using the humor both to
deflate criticism of her and to bolster her criticism of others; she
seems completely humorless.)
However, that would be perfect for replacing snarky Simon on American
Idol, and it could give what might be a dying show a fresh outlook
and legs to dominate late into the decade.
It's either that or late night show for her and that would be oh so
abusers apparently may experience over time.
But, judging from the interview excerpts I've endured since
yesterday, I now wonder do steroids turn one into a crybaby, or cause
some similar emotional problem.
My, my, I'm trying to say anything about growing a pair.
I must say that calling the admission the hardest thing he has ever
done makes me wonder, would Mark McGwire rather have kept the lie going?
Someone had to have told him he has to come clean and admit what
apparently everyone else has known for a long, long time — that the
one-time home run king was a fraud.
Seems like if he was really coming clean, then admitting it would
lift the great weight of guilt off his once hefty shoulders.
But no, the former St. Louis Cardinal hates to admit what he did
because he can no longer even lie to himself that what he did on the
field was great or worth anything.
If living with this lie for more than a decade or two was easier than
admitting it, then it looks like steroid abuse can also cause delusions.
