Thank God Its Almost Super Duper Tuesday! I don’t know how much more of this I can take. Hello and Welcome to the inaugural blog post of Ms. Mebz. You can think of me as your ambassador to the weekend. From now on I will be your Friday tour guide to the world of John “the news” King. Please keep your feet off of the furniture and don’t litter.

Now, regardless of what I might tell myself, you probably didn’t come here for me. So, for those of you who have had a hard week, this is for you:

Election Preview

Yesterday, John was in the Sit Room reporting on the race in South Carolina. He was live from the optimistically named Prosperity, South Carolina, a name that he and Wolf Blitzer seemed to enjoy. Later, John was a member of the Sit Room’s round table discussion. However he was cut off (again!) by near-by sirens. I remember this happening at least one other time in Iowa. Leading to this humorous exchange:

Cafferty: “Note to the roundtable producers– indoor locations are soundproof and remove the possibility of freight trains, sires, falling buildings, riot, tear gas canisters. And they’re just as adequate for us to have a conversation. We don’t have to put John King out on the railroad tracks every time he does one of these things.”

Borger: “Didn’t you know we sent police escorts with John all the time? That’s what the sirens are.”

Cafferty: “Arrest him.”

Now, if CNN does indeed send police escorts with John, I can’t imagine why. Millie, you have any idea?

You might notice that I don’t have visuals for yesterday’s report *ducks flying tomatoes* I was working, sorry! Please accept this old school picture as payment for my lack of current screen caps.

Old School

CNN’s schedule is showing Ballot Bowl for both Saturday and Sunday afternoon. And don’t forget that Saturday is the Republican primary in South Carolina and the Nevada Caucus.

For those of you in our Yahoo Group, you might have noticed that I haven’t been sending out my Daily YouTube videos in a while. I thought this would be a good chance to restart. Therefore, I give you Mebz’s Weekly No Good Irrelevant YouTube Video. (Disclaimer: I in no way endorse the actions of this duck. But you know water fowl, they can be so stubborn)

Also, since this is the end of the week and there won’t be another posting until Monday, I thought I’d give you a topic of discussion for the weekend. I found a pair of socks in the discount bin last week and thought to myself “Discount socks, rock on!” But when I got them home I realized they were marketed as some sort of “enviro-sock” and that they are made of bamboo. My question is: Am I taking food away from poor hungry pandas by wearing these socks? Is that why they were in the discount bin? Should I be ashamed of myself? Discuss.

Also, lastly, today is my Mom’s birthday. Now, I would wager a good sum of money that my Mother has never even hear the word “blog” before. However, on the off chance that she is abducted by monkeys and forced to Google JohnthenewsKing: Happy Birthday Mom!

    Fantastico! Thank you so much for that funny “police” bit. I had missed that one, you are awesome for catching that banter and posting it to the blog.

    Happy Birthday to Mommie Mebz!!!!

  2. Mebz great first post 😀

    I wish I had watched TSR yesterday it sounds like I missed some good John moments. Perhaps John will be on 360 tonight. Ok so that is just wishful thinking on my part.

    Happy birthday to Mebz’s Mommy!!! 😀

    Where is everybody? Hello?

  9. mebz72

    Hey AC, what’s happening? It’s lonely ’round these parts.

  10. Did you hear Mebz, Erica Hill is going to be a correspondent for 360??? I am so excited about this.

  11. mebz72

    I had read that on TVNewser, but it wasn’t confirmed. Is it for sure? It would be awesome to have her full-time and live on 360. I remember her subbing for Anderson one time back on red360. And though JK will always be my first choice for sub, she would make a great fill in.

    Okay, just saw it on the AC360 blog, I’m a little slow. Sorry. WooooHoooo
