London’s Mandarin Oriental Hotel was the venue for a party thrown by the fortunately soon to depart Piers “Morgan” Moron, a celebration of his appointment by increasingly desperate CNN management to succeed Larry King. The importance of the event was such that coverage was confined to the Daily Express.
And the host of The Percy Moron Show demonstrated that he has retained his misplaced sense of entitlement in some style, among a guest list of accomplished Z-listers such as Michael Winner, Andrew Lloyd Webber and someone from Dragon’s Den who only turned up because his wife wanted to go.
Percy told the Express hack that he wanted to get Barack Obama, Mel Gibson and Jack Nicholson on his show, but that Madonna would not be asked, because “she is so boring”.
In reply – not included in the fawning Express piece – Madge delegated the swatting of this particular insect to her publicist, who observed “Madonna doesn’t know who Piers Morgan is”. The thought entered that Obama, Gibson and Nicholson may share that opinion.
Once again, Sean Hannity and Rachel Maddow are not quaking in their boots. Remember King’s interview back in October with Jon Stewart? Bring on the January 9pm weekday CNN car crash.
