Crossing a picket line of Writer’s…scary stuff

Huckabee looks to have not had the Bill Clinton/Arsenio moment he was looking for when he appeared on Jay Leno last night since he had to cross the WGA picket line to appear. I find it funny being a son of a UAW worker that anyone takes a picket line of writer’s seriously in the first place and their demands are ludicrous and whinny when so many “real” people are struggling to put food on the table. Here is a suggestion to the striking writer’s that belong to WGA, get a better agent and stop thinking you should be paid residuals for an episode of Silver Spoons that was written in ’83…get a real job if you’re not happy with writing for a living since many of us would take your place in a minute.

“decision to bust through the union barricade in Burbank. “We ask him to respect our picket lines in the future,” the guild said in its follow-up statement after The Tonight Show taping.

Speaking about Huckabee, Leno said he had reached the ‘top tier” of GOP andidates. “That means, during the debates he no longer has to wear a nametag,” Leno yukked. …wait a minute, was Jay’s monologue ever suppose to be funny

Back in Iowa, Romney took a shot a Huckabee as well. “Frankly, my focus is on the caucuses here in Iowa,” Romney told reporters. “I think Mike is more concerned about the caucus in Los Angeles.”
