Oh, How I long for Johnny Carson

We wondered to what depths the left would stoop. And now we know.

This then is the state of the stoop.

If you or I were to do such a thing, we would have had the Secret Service on our doorstep in a heartbeat. If we had done something similar using Obama’s head, we would have had the NAACP AND the Secret Service at our throats. Kathy Griffin has only to apologize and all is forgiven. That it occurred to her at all is left unexamined by the fake news outlets. That it somehow doesn’t help to bridge the profundities in our country today is left unexamined by MSNBC and their ilk.

I must ask: How is this funny? How is this creative and chuckle-provoking? Would Johnny Carson have done this? Or, even at his worst, would David Letterman? Or what about Griffin’s mentor, Joan Rivers? It is not funny, it is not creative. And no, Johnny Carson would never have done it. Joan Rivers, bless her soul, would be disgusted.

And now we read that the leftist mayor of Portland wants to ban certain protesters from the streets of his fair (fair?) city. No word on whether he will seek a ban on Kathy Griffin performing in Portland. Complete silence.

Oh how I miss Johnny Carson. Class, and sublime commentary beseeching us to our better angels.

Holding up a bloody head?

Look at him. Somehow I doubt it.

About Dr Joseph Russo

Born and raised in Woodland Hills, California; now residing in Laramie, Wyoming (or "Laradise" as we call it, for good reason), with my wife Cindy, our little schnauzer, Macy Mae, and a cat named Markie. I hold a BBA from Cal State Northridge and an MBA from the University of Nevada at Reno. My first career was in business, for some 25+ years. In 2007, I shifted gears and entered the helping professions as a mental health counselor. I earned an MA in Educational Psychology and a Doctorate (PhD) in Counselor Education and Supervision. In my spare time I enjoy mentoring young and not-so-young business and non-profit executives as they go about growing their businesses and presence. I also teach part-time at the University of Wyoming, in both the Colleges of Education and Business.
