We Would Be Beyond Delighted If The BBC Picked Comely Sue Perkins As Replacement For Boorish Clarkson.

 I would go even further.

Use the entire cast from
“The Great British Bake Off”.

They would be great.

Paul Hollywood (and what a GREAT name)
can provide ALL the male interest needed
while Mary Berry will add even MORE class to the show.

Plus, PLEASE note that on March 26, 2015, I mentioned how great
The Great British Bake Off” was for the BBC
while talking about the firing of bloody Clarkson.

I only know Sue Perkins from the 2014 “Bake Off“. I like her. Reminds me of, just in terms of looks, Rachel Maddow — and I am a huge fan of hers too. Sue Perkins to me is the antithesis of the bloody Clarkson. She is pleasant, self-deprecating, personable and witty. Clarkson was but an ignorant yob. Sue, with her glasses and teeth, reminds me of the British girl next door. Clarkson reminds me of the goons you see in MSNBC’s ‘Lockup‘ series. Sue will bring much needed CLASS to the show.

They really should have the ENTIRE cast of “Bake Off”. It would create a CROSSOVER sensation. They will be great and the BBC will have TWO winners. Synergy at its best.

Sue (kind of like Rachel) is no slouch. Cambridge educated. Does doltish Clarkson even have an ‘A’-level?

President Obama Gives GoDaddy An Enormous (‘Free’) Plug On TV At The “White House Correspondents’ Association” Dinner Last Night.

That they picked Danica Patrick’s GoDaddy NASCAR car, with the GoDaddy logos clearly emblazoned, could not have been a coincidence. Great publicity for GoDaddy, and I am glad given how they helped me out during the papal transition.

Not sure how GoDaddy pulled off this coup. I don’t think (but I could be wrong) that my President would just succumb to the charms of a GoDaddy wet T-shirt girl. That would have, of course, worked with Clinton.

So I have to think that some real mulla, in the millions, was involved in this — either as campaign donations in the past or as a direct payment for this priceless ad.

That is what confuses me. I could be wrong. GoDaddy could be an Obama supporter, which would make me very happy.

GoDaddy, in the end, is Bob Parsons company; he being the founder and now the Executive Chairman.

I have never had the honor of directly interacting with Bob.

But, I have had exceptional service and support from his staff in his office. Which is more than I can say about TDS and its CEO’s staff.

When GoDaddy was pulling out all the stops to help me deal with the huge spike in hits I was getting on my pope blog, I was told that Bob had heard about my problem and was personally monitoring my blog to make sure that it was coping with the traffic demands. I was very grateful. I was going to write a thank you note but was told, explicitly, that it would not be necessary.

Bob Parson is a true maverick and I do admire his style and tastes (and what real, hot-blooded male wouldn’t). So, for all I know, he, like so many high-tech moguls, Hollywood megastars and Warren Buffet could be an Obama supporter. That would neat.

Either way, I loved seeing the GoDaddy plug.

I thoroughly enjoyed the President’s speech and that of Conan O’Brien. Very clever. Very funny. This repartee by Conan had me in stitches: “Speaker Boehner and President Obama are still struggling to get along. President Obama and John Boehner are kind of like a blind date between Anderson Cooper and Rachel Maddow. In theory, they understand each other’s positions, but deep down, you know nothing’s ever going to happen“. [In case you don’t get it, they are both gay.]
