Well, I was deeply shocked when I received this mere moments ago:
Members of the elite media establishment –
Next Wednesday, April 18, marks a big milestone for Pub Politics – Episode 100.
What started as just me, Phil, a few beers and a camera, has turned into a weekly must-attend event viewed by thousands online.
We’re going to throw down and we want you to be there to cover our big day.
WHEN: Wednesday, April 18, 6:00 pm
WHERE: Jake’s in 5 Points, Columbia, SC
WHO: Attorney General Alan Wilson with more guests to be named later this week. ‘The Project,’ a band led by State Representative James Smith, will perform.
I would really appreciate you coming out to celebrate with us.
Can you imagine it? They’re having their big 100-show bash, and they haven’t asked me, their one-and-only seven-timer, to be a featured guest! Would they have come this far without me? Where would “Laugh-In” have been without Tiny Tim, or Charo? That’s what I’m on about. (“Help! Help! I’m being repressed!”)
Sure, they called me a member of the elite media establishment, but that’s old hat to me. I want to be treated like the star that I am.
Be sure to write to the network (after all, it worked so well in saving “Firefly”), or whomever, and express your shock and outrage.
