Bill Murray’s 2011 Appearance on Squawk Box
“It’s not a question of asking other people for help or being rescued or anything like that,” he added. “I think there’s only so many people that can take care of themselves, and can take care of other people. And the rest of the people … they’re useful in terms of compost for the whole planet, you know.”
Murray’s message of personal responsibility “seemed to play into the message of Republicans,” The Hill reported in an article on the “Squawk Box” appearance. The conservative-leaning Drudge Report linked it.”* Jimmy Dore (The Jimmy Dore Show) and Steve Oh (COO of The Young Turks) discuss Murray’s comment and why it shows that he’s out of touch with middle class people.
Welcome to the first episode of our new show taped at the CurrentTV studios and airing on The Young Turks Network.
This week we tackle the Facebooks public offering, the media's coverage of the Bin Laden death, John McCain advice on picking a Vice-President, and Jamie Dimon is kind of 100% full of shit.
Fox News discussed the Colorado Ballot initiative to legalize pot, and we break it down with Cenk Uyger and Michael Sure on TYT!
After this aired, I got tweeted by the VP of Meat Glue (not kidding) and he was very upset, but had noting factual to say.
Jerry Sandusky is trying to prove that he’s a good guy and not a molester by repeatedly telling people how much he likes hanging out with kids. Here he is also tryiing to get his bail conditions eased. His house butts up against the back of a school and a children’s playground, and neighbors have complained that he is on his back porch when the children are on the playground. He is not allowed out of his house, or do any of the usual things he used to do , and he just doesn’t understand why.
He wants you to know that he is definitely the victim here. I was waiting for him to say “This is the thanks I get for teaching all those kids how to shower?”. I imagine if I talked with him our conversation would go something like this”
Sandusky: “I don’t get why I can’t just do the things I used to do in my community.”
Me: “Because Jerry, you’re accused of raping children.”
Sandusky: “Yes, that is one thing I used to do in my community.”
Below are a few of my favorite quotes from his press conference:
“I have been associated with thousands of children over the years”. Yeah, and some you weren’t even attracted to.
“My friends want to see me and spend time with me, and I have to tell them I can’t”.. – But did you tell them the reason you can’t see them is cuz you are busy staring at the kids next door on the playground.
Now I have often wondered what kind of a horrible lawyer keeps letting their client speak like this on camera? But for all I know we could be witnessing the single greatest piece of lawyering in history. See, by the time Sandusky walks into court, they will have hours of news footage of him proving he is too incompetent to stand trial. And if that doesn’t work, an appeal based on incompetence of counsel seems to be a lock.
