Fox News Cuts Off Dick

Dick Morris

Dumped Tuesday by Fox News, political pundit Dick Morris pimps himself on Piers Morgan Wednesday. Morris had been off Fox News since November 12th after predicting Romney would win in a “landslide.”  DeadlineThe Hollywood Reporter.

The insufferable short-fingered vulgarian with static cling hair crows on his website:  “You read it right!  CNN, yes CNN.”

CNN Reliable Sources host Howard Kurtz seems to suggest Dick may have not really believed Romney would win.  Translation:  Fox News encouraged the false “narrative.”  (Obama and the copycat media’s misuse have made me despise the word narrative.)

    That’s so funny, Howard can no longer hide his fear of  fox (FOF)

    Dick won’t save your job Howwy.

      I was never a fan of hooker toe-sucking sleazy Clinton pal Morris.  I saw him speak at a talk radio thing a couple of years ago in NYC.  My reference to his flyaway hair:  as he worked the room before his remarks, his hair was so full of static electricity it nearly stood on end.  Hilarious. 

      Dick was pimping a new book and was adamant in insisting his wife, Eileen McGann, got credit as co-writer.  I guess Dick’s on a short leash all those years later for his toe-sucking antics with a prostitute.

      Dick likes Dick, (pun intended)

      He’s a snake-oil dickhead peddling his dubious wares now to CNN to stick it to Fox News.  What an ungrateful prick!

    • John Cobb

      He’s better than anyone they have now, and of course that’s not saying much.

      Maybe but Dick sure stepped on his dick with his Romney landslide prediction. Via BlackBerry

    “What an ungrateful prick!”

    Why do you say he’s ungrateful? They didn’t renew and so he sold his services to the next bidder. Am I wrong?

    • http://chickaboomer.com/ Marty Davis

      Yeah, I guess I was being mean.   Dick can peddle his wares anywhere.  You aren’t wrong. 

    • http://chickaboomer.com/ Marty Davis

      I don’t like him. Call me biased. Morris is way past his sell-by date. Via BlackBerry

    Headline of the year (so far)
    His name is Richard. They call him Dick for short, but not for long.

    I have been curious on what happened between him and th Clinton’s.. Obviously he fell out of favor with them.

    • Jimbotalk

      Dickie used to be an equal opportunity adviser, helping the campaigns of Trent Lott and Bubba almost simultaneously.  But he got to be an ideologue more than a campaign aide and that pretty much killed the Clinton relationship.  Piers will find out what Sean, Bill, and others (me included) already know:  Dickie is insufferable as an interviewee, patronizing beyond belief. 

    • http://chickaboomer.com/ Marty Davis

      By “patronizing,” I assume you mean Dick crawls up people’s asses.

    • Jimbotalk

      Not really.  I mean he’s always right, even when, as I did in one pre-election show, cite figures on the air that blew him out of the water.  He just couldn’t admit that the great Dick Morris didn’t know absolutely everything.

    • http://chickaboomer.com/ Marty Davis

      That was his Achilles Heel at Fox.

      The story is out there somewhere. I can’t recall the details.  Google it!

      Like many before him and many after him, I believe the beginning of his end was his involvement with a prostitute.  There was probably no concern on behalf of the Clintons and/or their administration regarding the prostitute, but the concern would have been Morris grabbing attention away from Clinton.  

    • http://chickaboomer.com/ Marty Davis

       But, LJ, Morris flourished in the media for years after that incident.

      Thank you

    could not stand listening to him wheeze and heavy wheeze into the mic..
