Gretch: Gimme Some Skin!

Emotively exuberant, Fox & Friends co-host, Gretchen Carlson, this morning exhorted Pundit Pit participant, the Daily Beast’s John Batchelor,  to give her a high five. After his postulation that New York Governor David Paterson would likely pick Caroline Kennedy as Hillary Clinton’s replacement as junior NY U.S. Senator because of political expediency, Gretchen raised her hand and raved, “Best point of the day, John! Give me some skin!” The gray-haired columnist hesitantly lifted his hand and did so.

Her exchange reminded the author of her asking Shepard Smith for the secret handshake to make up with him after he dissed F&F over its coverage of a bogus airport threat: He looked at her with seeming disdain and said, “I don’t know the handshake.” Perhaps, more a propos is her seeking similar “skin” approbation from co-anchors Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade on occasion: they both seem to respond reluctantly to her request with awkward attempts to acquiesce.

As a former Miss America who was inspired to enter the competition by the ebony beauty Vanessa Williams, the vanilla lovely need only to compete on her own terms. No need to chew the scenery for effect. Just be natural, Gretch!

    Didn’t know what “Gimme Some Skin!” meant when I saw the title. Thought maybe you wanted Ms. Carlson to wear skimpier clothing.

    Nah, Jake is still angry that Gretchen wasn’t fired, and that Kiran was told to take a hike for trying to demand it.

  3. jakeho Says:

    No, Al. Just to be more naturel not more au naturale.

    Boogiewoogee, as Gretch’s champion, you should be all for her jettisoning the contrivances.
