“Desperado” Gretchen

Fox & Friends co-host Gretchen Carlson gave her audience a Bushologism. During her interview with former Clinton Communications Director and Fox News contributor Howard Wolfson, Gretch asked, “A lot of people said that the only way that he [Barack Obama] would pick Hillary is if it were desperado: But, in the last twenty-four hours it looks a little bit more desperado, doesn’t it?” Obviously, Gretch should have said “desperate.”

Surely, the Stanford grad with honors knows that a desperado is one that is in dire straits (an obsolete definition) or a violent malefactor.

    The classic example of a ‘desperado’ was the gunfighter and notorious braggart, Les Moore, who was killed in Deadwood, Arizona in an argument over a poker game. His famous epitaph on his gravestone reads:

    “Here lies Les Moore. Four slugs from a .44.
    No Les, No Moore.”

    They sure don’t make desperadoes like they used to!

    Ahhh…Are you sayin’ a Stanford grad is automatically intelligent? Now that’s a deperate statement. She’s blonde give her a break.

    You guys have an ax to grind because Gretchen is far prettier than you idol Alisyn.

    Was that really necessary, Mike? Both are attractive and intelligent, and this kind of petty nonsense belongs back on RC.

    I used to think Carpe Diem was a place where sane adults could discuss opinions about cable shows without the tittering, ogling and snickering found on other sites. My mistake. But I have my doubts that this missive will survive the selective moderation process.

    I agree Mike…if Gretchen said the sky is blue and it is, Jake would swear that there are clouds and Gretch is just flaky but, let Ally say the same and he would find an excuse to say Ally is right because she shows more skin!

    Speaking of sanity and skin, some seem a bit thin in both regards lately.,

    the “Big G” knew exactly what she was doing. I was watching and she knew immediately that she had SCORED. In spite of the fact that she wants to come off as the dumb blond, she is very vicious when it comes to the enemy.
