Did you hear the one about DAVID GREGORY and the fish?

Q: What's the difference between a liberal journalist and a carp?
A: One's a scum-sucking bottom feeder, and the other's a fish.

OK, so that was really a lawyer joke. But that's actually unfair to lawyers, when, in fact, the legal profession scores way better than the press these days in public opinion surveys. In fact, the mainstream mediocracy scores very near the bottom of public confidence, where it has fallen precipitously in recent years, even below actors and union leaders. Now, that's low. In fact, public trust in television news and newspapers reached an all-time low last year, according to Gallup.

So, I propose we dispense with all the lawyer jokes and switch to journalists. Example:

Q: What's the difference between a dead skunk and a dead journalist?
A: With the skunk there are skid marks.

Get the idea? If journalist jokes caught on, maybe some of the newsies might even begin to get it, too—that tearing down America isn't especially appreciated by everybody.

Speaking of jokes, this is DAVID GREGORY WEEK at The Roscoe Daley Report in our continuing endeavor to turn the spotlight of public scrutiny back on the most egregious of these elite mediocrats. Probably the least appreciated quality of all is arrogance. And that happens to be a quality that Mr. Gregory has in spades—and clubs, hearts and diamonds.

Charlie Brown, who called the English teacher "Daddy-o," was a piker compared with David Gregory in impertinence. He recently called the President’s press secretary, for example, a "jerk." David Gregory, thy name is arrogance, petulance and hissy fits. And, David, people are on to you, baby.

Here's a sample, picked almost at random off the Internet:

"David Gregory, people don't like you, people don't trust your judgment, and people are fully aware that you and your colleagues constantly distort or misrepresent facts based on your ideological agenda. So, if we barely believe you when you report hard facts, why on earth would we believe your partisan preening, your faux outrage, your overbearing editorializing, and your hysterical rumor-mongering?" See here.

Then there was the time Gregory called in stupid to Don Imus. Yeah, it's going to be a fun week. . .
