that's got to be some hard-core crack. maybe even some designer coke analogue in the place of the c-jam.
m.s.n.b.c. could have a big hit with a debate show called olbermann/coulter
... the intro starts out with manuel noriega banging on the podium with the machete and then this funky music starts...sort of like a blow-freak version of the old siskel & ebert
intro showing ms coulter and mr olbermann sharing a line of nose candy or fifty before a show, fiddling with a butane lighter, freaking out at a yankees game and spilling their drinks all over other spectators, cackling whilst watching the monitors in the newsroom...
give them both those coffee mugs that say "i enjoy colombia's second-most-famous export" and a desk shaped like a "c" as on the colbert report
, but of course it doesn't stand for "colbert"... they could have a segment called "the coulter counter" similar to "harper's
index" which features graphics of line and bar graphs drawn with bolivian marching powder on a mirror. the bumper music is always "cocaine" by the oak ridge boys..."if u've got bad news/u want to kick those blues..."
there would a lot of violent, frenzied energy there. if they started doing it on the desk, it would not only blow the other networks out of the water, but the final episode of m*a*s*h
, fr coughlin...not that such a scene would really turn my
"u ever fuck on coke?...it's nice."
