Larry King - Who The Hell Is This Guy Anyway?

I have reached the age where deaths are playing an ever larger role in my life and psyche.  As the icons whose names have been a part of my life all of my life pass on (Lena Horne and Dennis Hopper being the latest) I often pause and reflect on what they've meant to me.

Some, such as the two above, have had very positive impacts and I'm sorry to see them go.  Others, such as Gary Coleman, have had no impact at all and although I wish them no ill will, I just don't care.  Then there are those who are still around and whose names make me think... "If I never have to hear that guy again it'll be too soon."  A couple of those people would be Rush Scumbag and... Larry King.

Larry King.  Who the hell is this guy anyway?  Have you every watched his show? The few times that I have, when his guest was someone I was really interested in, it was a crashing bore, a wasted hour, a droll interview of lightweight questions and no insights.  Yet somehow, the guy is a "celebrity" sought out as a guest at ritzy parties, someone to be seen with and, apparently, a magnet for bimbo blondes.

The big news lately, as reported by the Associated Press, is King's latest divorce, HIS 8th!!

"It's a very sad day in Larry's life and he hopes the divorce will be amicable," King's lawyer Susan Carter told TMZ. "Larry loves his children very much and will be an integral part of their lives."

Give me a break!  This guy doesn't give a damn about anything but his own celebrity and why the hell he is a celebrity in the first place speaks volumes about the sorry state of our culture.


  1. I'm still trying to think of something to say about Larry King. He leaves me totally befuddled.

  2. You are hilarious. The Gary Coleman was classic. And as far as Larry King goes, how can you trust a man who wears suspenders everywhere? Creeeepy...

  3. oh, and I bet we've all seen better legs on a table than that chicka's got!

  4. You're just now finding out about the state of American Culture?


Sorry about the comment thingy folks. Too much spam.
