OY VEY! Not Dr. Phil AGAIN! . . . .on ABC News

By Debbie Schlussel
Can somebody please fire Dr. Phil as CEO of Hurricane Counseling, Inc? The TV talk psychologist is, right now, on an ABC News Hurricane Rita special–giving advice to ABC News Anchor and HAMAS apologist Elizabeth Vargas. First, he was in Houston and New Orleans for Katrina–and now this.
Somebody stop him. Please. And take him back to daytime where he belongs with HOprah, Soap opera-dom, and feminine hygiene products commercials. Remember, he has more important things to contemplate–like his equally annoying offspring son’s engagement to one of the Playboy Playmate Dahm Triplets–each a bigger moron than the next. Yes, sleaze runs in the family.

PLEASE SHUT UP!

Maybe daytime TV wouldn’t be a bad place for Vargas, either.
In case you forgot, Vargas started her climb to anchordom with the hosting of “20/20″ and started off by giving a softball interview to Yusuf Islam/Cat Stevens/HAMAS fundraiser, last fall. I guess compared to that, it’s not so bad to have Dr. Phil on an ABC News special. But we have to compare it to that extreme to excuse the annoying talk show host sleaze being on a NEWS show. Either way, she is a poor arbiter of interview subjects to glorify.

Before Dr. Pill came on camera to tell viewers how to handle their feelings of “not being in control,” I demonstrated just how in control I was. I shut the TV off.
This shows how irrelevant guilds like the American Psychological Association (APA) have become. Once upon a time, it had ethical guidelines that dealt with TV charlatans.

last weeks Stern show in the news segment they spoke how Dr.Phil at a charity event put on by Arnolds wife.Phil was so demanding she gave up and told him to just leave.I think it was a story by ‘cindy adams’ and stern was saying for Cindy to write such a neg.story about Dr.Phil he must have been acting pretty bad.

I’m beginning to think our media/pop culture is being made up by a bunch of 14 year old girls in a room.
When I see frauds like HOprah, Dr. Phull, celebs as political spokesmen (and that’s on the left and right), reality TV, the glorification of Paris Hilton and her clones, Tara Reid having a show, and E!TV in general (except for Stern’s show), Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, I just want to puke.
As awful as 9/11 and the hurricanes were, maybe America will begin to grow up and become a nation of men and women again instead of a bunch of babies led around the nose by illusions of the Hollywood lifestyle.

debbie i doubt the networks will give any moslem a hard time about terrorism. they would never risk being targeted. by the way, the dahm triplets would probably do well in a ms. butterface contest.

Round The Reader – Better Late Than Never Edition

Sorry folks for the tardiness of this Round The Reader Edition. See post below for explanation. And let’s hope I am quick about THIS post before I lose power, storms are a brewing down here in the south.

Uhhh… Shleppy… The Dahm Triplets are no candidates for a “Butterface Contest”. I’d like to see all 3 of them battle it out on Jeopardy and stammer and sigh over the answers. That would be hot. As for Dr. Phil… He’s just the egg headed dunce that coached DOprah on how to sue the Texas Beef Industry and now has a career because of it. Just another example of why this is the greatest country on the planet, despite what the neo-libs say.

I wouldn’t say the Dahm Triplets are butterfaces, either. They are just kind of your average bar tramp good looking. The only appeal is the triplets thing, individually neither would be famous for their looks.
I just hope DopeRah does another hurricane show, even though I bet she’s pretty ticked she has to leave her comfy studio and Stepford audience. I want to hear her phony screech “I’m Mad-d-d-d” again. I don’t watch her, but I heard the clips and the bonehead chicks at the gym INSIST!!! the show be shown on the TVs at the treadmills. That audience is a trip, sort of like a circus with dancing bears or something.

SHUT IT! I love Dr.phil, and think he is super hot!!!

i would guess dr phil would like the new daughter in law to grow up a bit and be more conservative, as we all do when we grow up. otherwise, its just part of being a family and hoping for the best!
