Like little stars.
At least a couple of people think former House Majority Leader Dick Armey’s comments about Salon editor in chief were funny.
If you’re just tuning in, last week, while on MSNBC’s “Hardball,” Armey told Walsh, “I am so damn glad that you could never be my wife, ’cause I surely wouldn’t have to listen to that prattle from you every day.”
Later in the week, Think Progress notes, conservative radio host Mike Gallagher had Fox News’ Chris Wallace on his show, and the two discussed the remark. That conversation culminated with this exchange:
GALLAGHER: Now, now, feminists are very angry that he said, “I’m glad you couldn’t be my wife.” I mean …
WALLACE: It’s pretty funny actually.
GALLAGHER: It’s hysterical. Do you know how many times a week I say, “thank God I don’t have to wake up next to her.” I mean some of these callers, these shrews that call.
Audio of the discussion is below.
Update: The Washington Post’s Howard Kurtz had a very different take on the incident. Sunday, on “Reliable Sources,” his CNN show, Kurtz said, “Well, you know, it was really one step above, ‘Joan, you ignorant slut.’ And it bothers me that nobody pays a penalty for this. I’m sure he’ll be back on all the shows within a week or two.”

World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
