"I wonder if he was taking V... It'll make you crazy, the V."
-- Shepard Smith, completely derailing an interview on Fox News by suddenly deciding that he wanted to talk about HBO's True Blood
I really get the impression that Shep has just given up -- and for this I love him even more than I have throughout the very long time that I've known him. He either realizes that he can say whatever the hell he wants to on Fox and he'll still have a job or he's purposely trying to see if there's anything at all he can say that'll get him in trouble. Regardless, he's exercising his absolute authority and bulletproof-ness with giddy abandon.
Shep has basically turned into Brando in The Island of Dr. Moreau over there. It's only a matter of time before he shows up on the air in white makeup wearing boxer shorts and a lampshade on his head and talking to a midget he keeps as a pet.
