Nancy Grace Makes Her Own Gravy

Though my girl Amy Poehler did her justice, there’s really no need to parody Nancy Grace; nothing’s worse than the reality. Except Grace’s cluelessness as to her own need for a severe beating. Just watch her here, ripping David Smith’s heart out.

He is, of course, the ex-husband of that Susan Smith (she drowned their kids and blamed, of course, a black man). I couldn’t make myself watch it twice, but she’s determined to know exactly how it felt thinking about his kids strapped into their seat belts so they could drown as lengthily as possible.

What a…witch. And a narcissistic one at that; if she wants to talk about it, then the topic couldn’t possibly be a tad inappropriate.

Too bad I have a scruple or two. Otherwise, I’d be helming “Debra Dickerson: Beast From Hell” (whose own crew knows it).

ONE MORE QUICK THING:

Or at least we hope. It’s fall fundraising time, and we’re trying to raise $250,000 to help fund Mother Jones’ journalism during a shorter than normal three-week push.

If you’re reading this, a fundraising pitch at the bottom of an article, you must find our team’s reporting valuable and we hope you’ll consider supporting it with a donation of any amount right now if you can.

It’s really that simple. But if you’d like to read a bit more, our membership lead, Brian Hiatt, has a post for you highlighting some of our newsroom's impressive, impactful work of late—including two big investigations in just one day and covering voting rights the way it needs to be done—that we hope you'll agree is worth supporting.
