Shar Jackson Defends Kevin Federline’s Parenting Skills

Sunday, January 14th, 2007

According to this article, Shar Jackson thinks that Kevin Federline is a wonderful father.  Jackson has two children by Kevin – a four-year old and a two-year old.  Brittney Spears also has two children by Kevin – both under 2 years of age.  One thing we know for sure about K-Fed: He is biologically capable of fathering children. 

Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t Kevin dump Shar WHILE she was pregnant with the now two-year old in order to be with Brittney?  Perhaps it was a wise “professional” move on his part.  Many people had never heard of Kevin Federline before he pulled that stunt and then subsequently fathered two children by Brittney.  However, how does that kind of behavior align with being an “amazing dad”?

Speaking about her four-year old daughter, Shar provided the best quote of the article:

 “He’s an amazing dad,” she said Thursday while shopping for goodies at the Boom Boom Room’s Baby and Big Kid Style Villa, a pre-Golden Globes swag party. “He’s a great dad and if you said his name right now, Kori would go crazy. That’s the love of her life.”

Asked about their daughter’s special bond with her father, Jackson answered: “He was there for her every minute of her life until, you know, we weren’t together anymore.”  (emphasis mine)

Let’s see, that would have been two years of the little girl’s life.  Wonder how much time Federline has spent with her since then?  Shar says:

“He’s a trouper,” says Jackson. . .  “He knows that everything in life is, ya know, an experience and you learn from it and then you get past it. I’m not worried about him.”

Me either.  Kevin knows how to take care of Kevin.  And it seems he has had quite a few expereinces that he has gotten past.  Don’t know about you, but I’m not ready to give the “Father of the Year” crown to him, though.  It takes more than a sperm donation and the ability to look out for oneself to make a real father.

Donald Trump and Rosie O’Donnell Argue over Miss U.S.A.

Thursday, December 21st, 2006

You’ve got to admire Donald Trump. He’s not afraid to tell it like it is when it comes to Rosie O’Donnell. It seems that so many others are afraid to call her on her nasty remarks about other people. According to this news story, Donald responded to Rosie’s barbs by saying:

“Rosie O’Donnell is disgusting, I mean both inside and out,” Trump shot back on the syndicated entertainment show “The Insider.” “Take a look at her, she’s a slob. She talks like a truck driver. … Her show failed when it was a talk show, she failed on that. The ratings went very, very low and very bad and she got essentially thrown off television. Her magazine was a total catastrophe, she got sued.

“I never went bankrupt, but she said I went bankrupt. So probably I’ll sue her because it would be fun. I’d like to take some money out of her fat-ass pockets,” he said.

That’s wonderful. I especially agree with that first sentence.

Update: Apparently things goes more heated throughout today. Here’s another story:

The Donald called the Los Angeles-based morning show “Good Day L.A.” to sound off on O’Donnell’s remarks about his near-firing of Miss USA Tara Conner.

“Maybe she wanted to put the crown back on Miss USA’s head,” the real-estate mogul said of the openly gay O’Donnell, who has four children with her partner, Kelli. “I think she’s very attracted to Miss USA so she probably wanted to put the crown on her head herself.”

Insult No. 2: “She is a very, very unattractive woman who really is a bully.”

Insult No. 3: “Ultimately, Rosie is a loser, and ultimately (“The View”) will fail because of Rosie. … Barbara (Walters) made a mistake and let me tell you something, Barbara’s a good friend of mine. She cannot stand Rosie O’Donnell.”

The Left – Swimming in the Kiddie Pool of Shallowness

Wednesday, December 13th, 2006

I heard a sermon the other day about how important it is to watch out for people who only swim in the kiddie pool.  The kiddie pool is all one depth – shallow.  There are no gradations of depth.  People can splash around and make a lot of noise that demands attention.  Sometimes people even lie down in the kiddie pool and pretend they’re deep, but the reality is that they’re still in a shallow pool.

My immediate thought was that the sermon illustrated the left perfectly.  The talk is sometimes sophisticated and it certainly SOUNDS intellectual.  However, there is no depth – no long-range thinking about the consequences of their words and actions.  No consideration of the big picture.  Shallow. Shallow. Shallow.

Barbra Streisand Should Follow Her Own Command

Saturday, October 14th, 2006

Streisand has been Bush-bashing at concerts.  People who pay upwards of $250 for tickets to hear her sing are treated to typical Democratic Bush-bashing along with some songs.  Recently, when an audience member complained, she commanded him to “Shut the f*** up!”  How classy!  Not.  After delivering that statement,

Streisand noted that “the artist’s role is to disturb,” and delivered a message of tolerance

Okay.  She must indeed be an artist because her behavior was disturbing.  Apparently, though, her definition of tolerance is that people should be tolerant of her, but she shouldn’t have to be tolerant of them. Maybe you should follow your own command, Babs.
