What got into John Rowland, everyone was asking after the former governor and now WTIC-AM 1080 talk show host hammered former Republican Attorney General Nominee Martha Dean over her views on the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.
Dean has a "truther" video on her Facebook page that suggests, among other things, that the massacre might not have actually happened and that the government might have been behind such a conspiracy.
For her part, Dean said the video raised questions about the official narrative of the event. How did the shooter get into the school? Was there a second shooter? Was the government involved?
There is only one plausible explanation for Rowland's 360-depature from his normally conservative persona. It wasn't him.
Think about it:
Did anyone actually see Rowland conducting this interview?
Why would a right-wing radio station like WTIC-AM allow Rowland to expose a far-right conservative like Dean on the air for over an hour?
Is it possible Rowland was kidnapped and replaced by a government agent who had undergone numerous plastic surgery procedures (possibly under the direction of Joan Rivers)?
Is it just a coincidence that Rowland's voice sometimes sounded suspiciously like that of Manti Teo's girlfriend?
I'm not saying any of this is true. I'm just raising the questions.
Seeking Peace With Tuba, Uke Players
OK, so a few weeks ago in a different column venue I got into a bit of a spat with ukulele and tuba players after calling the instruments "dorky" and suggesting that in recorded history there had never been a tuba player who had a groupie.
For some reason, tuba and uke players took exception, and some unpleasant e-mails were received.
In one e-mail exchange with a man named Everest, who described himself as an "extremely awesome tuba player," I wrote: "You tuba types may be cool but you don't have much of a sense of humor."
This week Everest responded: "So I don't have a sense of humor?" and included the following:
You drop a tuba, a banjo, and an accordion off of the Empire State Building. Which one hits the ground first?
Why is the sousaphone better than the tuba?
Why did the chicken cross the road?
