CNN’s Nancy Grace is a putz.

How the hell does Nancy Grace keep her job as host of her own program on CNN’s Headline News channel? I’ve not watched CNN in awhile so I was very surprised when I encountered her for the first time the other day and for a couple of moments I thought I had mistakenly turned to FOX News. She manages to avoid the screaming of Bill “Douchebag” O’Reilly and I’ve yet to hear her tell someone to shut up, but that hasn’t stopped her from being just as obnoxious in her own way.

As I type this she’s beating the Terri Schiavo issue into the ground with interviews of people on both sides of the issue and it’s clear that her bias is that Terri was effectively murdered. When she’s not getting the responses she wants she interrupts with loaded questions instead of letting the people finish what they were saying. She’s been letting one of the doctors who examined Terri really have it over the fact that Terri died of dehydration. To his credit the doctor seems to be keeping his sense of humor about it. When a presbyterian minister launched into him and repeatedly demanded that he explain what it’s like to die of dehydration the doctor said, “Well, if you’d let me I’d be happy to explain to you what it’s like.” Nancy’s trying to compare Terri’s situation to the fact that the Pope is currently on a feeding tube and she keeps rehashing the fact that the Schindler siblings were barred from being in the room when Terri died.

Now she’s complaining about how it became a circus at the end. The irony, of course, is she doesn’t seem to realize she’s one of the acts participating in it. Man, I have to turn this off before I end up throwing a brick through the screen. Wow, she’s a major putz. Unbelievable.

  1. Les, you can not be a Christian and a lesbian.

    Sure you can. I know a number of people who manage it just fine.

    Les, it looks like you got a sudden “WE MUST DEFEND DEAR NANCY AT ONCE

  2. I am hurting this morning but do want to say I am proud to be a southern lady, married for 38 years, live in the Carolinas, have two sons, the oldest being a doctor, the younger an accountant.
    I resent my name and lesbian being used in the same sentence. As for being a Christian, I am! Les, hon, one day you will be aging too. I don’t know your age, but believe me everyone’s time will come. The best to the rest!
    Take good care!
    Claudia

  3. I resent my name and lesbian being used in the same sentence.

    [sarcasm] There’s a big surprise. [/sarcasm]

    As for being a Christian, I am!

    This is relevant in what way?

    Les, hon, one day you will be aging too. I don’t know your age, but believe me everyone’s time will come.

    Not terribly observant I see. My age is listed in the left-hand column near the top. Though I again fail to see how the above is in any way relevant to the discussion at hand.

    So let’s see here, we have two ladies who are proud of being from the south, Christian, obnoxious, arrogant, clueless and galling who are fans of a former lawyer-turned-pundit who’s also a lady, from the south, Christian, obnoxious, arrogant, clueless and galling. Birds of a feather I suppose…

  4. I resent my name and lesbian being used in the same sentence.

    I see.  She’d rather people thought her ignorant, ill-informed, stupid and a bigot, but god forbid they link her with lesbianism, even jokingly.

    Pretty much sums it up, don’t you think.  Stupid twat.

  5. LOL, I have to be honest Les. I have not read anything on your site but the postings.
    Welcome Cindi! Glad we have another person to spare with. Nancy looked great last night in the green. Go gurl!
    Take care,
    Claudia

  6. Cindi I think I mispelled sparing. Oh well, I did win the spelling bee in 8th grade. This quote might be interesting to those Nancy Grace haters. She is a real person and of course has an off screen life.

    Off camera, Ms. Grace possesses a warm, down-home charm. She uses phrases like “honey bunny” and is quick to dole out hugs and compliments. But when she produces a set of keys from the depths of her bra, you are quickly reminded that she is far more lion than lamb. “I put everything in my bra – money, pen, paper,” Ms. Grace shared in forthright way. “Never carry anything. I learned that from being a prosecutor walking through housing projects to find witnesses.”

    Take care,
    Claudia

  7. Welcome Cindi! Glad we have another person to spare with. Nancy looked great last night in the green. Go gurl!

    Claudia:  You really don’t want to “spare” (I assume you mean “spar?”)with me. Really. I would also suggest before you “spare” with any of the people on this site, you go back and read some of it.

    “Go gurl??”  Another revealing term.  Doubt you’ll find any “gurls” as regulars around here, but we do have an occasional twat stop by.

  8. Cindi I think I mispelled sparing. Oh well, I did win the spelling bee in 8th grade.

    I think you also misspelled “sparring,”  8th grade spelling bee champ.

  9. It’s never fun to engage in a battle of wits with an unarmed person.

    People like Nancy Grace and Ann Coulter are almost an inspiration for an obnoxious bitch such as myself… until I realize that career opportunities in punditry for loud, abrasive women are limited to those who’ll raise their voices in the service of Jesus and the religious right political agenda.  Oh well, sucks for me that I prefer not to live by guiding principles rooted in superstition and ignorance.  I wouldn’t trade my functioning grey matter for the mush between the ears of the Christofascist cunts like Grace & Coulter.

  10. LOL, I have to be honest Les. I have not read anything on your site but the postings.

    And I seriously doubt you’ve read many of those either. I’m willing to bet that this sole thread is the only thing you’ve looked at. Probably for the best. If you think I’m rough on Nancy then you’ll be none too pleased with what I’ve had to say about your God and some of his self-appointed representatives in the past. At least you can own up to being clueless, I’ll give you credit for that much.

    Welcome Cindi! Glad we have another person to spare [sic] with.

    That was good for a laugh. Spar? That would require you to do more than just gush over how great you think Nancy is. That would require you to come up with some solid reasoning to support your opinion rather than just competing in a brown nosing contest with Kathy. That would require having more than two functioning brain cells.

    Oh well, I did win the spelling bee in 8th grade.

    Which doesn’t speak too well of the intelligence level of the other four competitors I’m sure.

    This quote might be interesting to those Nancy Grace haters.

    Nope, you were wrong. Wasn’t interesting at all. Not one thing in that quote gives me any reason to change my opinion of her. What was I supposed to do? Think to myself, “She carries everything in her BRA?!?! WOW! She’s WAY better than I thought she was!”

    She is a real person and of course has an off screen life.

    I don’t recall anyone ever claiming she wasn’t a real person or didn’t have an off-screen life. What a ridiculous point to make. Of course she’s a real person and I would hope she has some sort of off-screen life or she’d be even worse than I imagine. How in the hell is anything you’ve written so far supposed to convince us she’s really this great person you seem to think she is?

    OB is right, you have to have some wits before you can battle with them.

  11. So when Nancy pulls her wallet out, does it mess up her cleavage? 

    “Ms Grace, are those pens in your bra, or are you just happy to see me?”

    “Never carry anything. I learned that from being a prosecutor walking through housing projects to find witnesses.

  12. Don’t know about racist, but definately sounds classist to me.

    Or streetwise.  I don’t know about the isms, but there are places where it’s a good idea not to carry stuff.

  13. Nancy Grace is still without a doubt the best on Courttv and CNN. She is very busy as we all know, but I continue to email her. I emailed her concerning this site and apparently it caught her attention. I got a reply! The long and short of it, I was uncomfortable with this site, particularly the name appearing in my email. Though it is my choice, her advice was to spend my time at the courttv site so using my best judgment I will not be posting here anymore. I love you all, wish you the very best, but I don’t want to be in the company of miserable minded people with distorted lives. Take good care, God bless.
    Claudia

  14. For once, I agree with Nancy. I’ll be a lot happier if you take your Nancy-ass kissing someplace else.

  15. Or streetwise.

    Sounds like she may have learned it the hard way.

    Point taken, dof.  I don’t know the full context she was speaking in.  The phrase sounds some kind of -ist one way, but also sounds kinda paranoid with a blanket statement like “Never carry anything”. 

    but I don’t want to be in the company of miserable minded people with distorted lives.

    I take back my google rating comment.  They’re trolling.

  16. I don’t want to be in the company of miserable minded people with distorted lives

    Me, either!  But that’s pretty much our lot as they keep stopping by here to complain about our use of profanity or that our values aren’t bigoted enough.

    How long do you think until she comes back, complaining that updates to this thread are still landing in her inbox?

  17. So when Nancy pulls her wallet out, does it mess up her cleavage?

    I doubt it. I have occassion to keep a number of things in my bra or cleavage, and I must say, it’s one of my most utilitarian wardrobe tricks.

    That damned bra needs to do something every once in awhile, other than aggravate me.

  18. I too googled “Nancy Grace sucks” and found this site.  Wow, GEddieG.

    Stupid, Republicans.

  19. I have to say this I just can’t help myself. If nobody like it oh well…. Michael Jackson getting a fair trial?? Yeah right. Thanx to Nancy Grace and all the other Courttv “reporters” . The Jurors aren’t sequestered so…they talk about him Had him marked guilty before the trial even began is that right?? No!!!!  How many people especially in California do not know or have never heard anything about Michael Jackson? Now Nancy Grace yes she is a putz she don’t even need to be on TV. As for Michael Jackson the truth is coming soon… I am on yourside… but CourtTv….You Suck!!

  20. I LOVE NANCY! If you want to talk about idiots why dont we talk about Howard Dean…its really bad when a democrat is an embarrassment to his fellow democrats.

  21. If anyone caught her disgraceful, rude, disrespectful, condescending, not-worthy-of-airtime behavior on her show following the Jackson verdict (regardless of what we think of the verdict), it’s worth it now to set up an official “Can Nancy Dis-Grace” campaign. CNN once used to be a real news cable channel. Now it’s all gossip, entertainment, and these bulldog commentators (not journalists for sure because they’re too opinionated to be journalists) like Nancy Grace. We pay for TV….can’t we all do something to try to get her fired? Protest the Atlanta headquarters or something?

  22. I don’t want her to get fired because we disagreed with her, I want her to get fired because everyone who watches her comes to realize what a putz she is and stops watching. She’s certainly entitled to her opinions and if she can get someone to pay her to express them on TV then more power to her I suppose.

    What distresses me is that she seems to have a popular following which speaks volumes on how many other putzes there are in the world.

  23. To Kathy and Claudia:

    I am a Tennessean and lawyer. Since I’m a lawyer, I like to deal with facts and evidenced it to the truth.  I have; therefore provided some definitions to help us solve this little quandary.  Is Nancy Grace a Southern Bell or a Putz.

    [Definitions]

    1. Southern Bell
    a.  A female from the Southern United States; Usually implies that the female in question possess both beauty, charm and style, while having a core of strength, intelligence and wit.
    b.  A popular and attractive girl or woman; especially: a girl or woman
    whose charm and beauty make her a favorite of the ball.

    2.  Putz
    a. (Yiddish) a fool; an idiot
    b.  Literally, vulgar slang for penis, not to be used lightly. More offensive than the schmuck, which can be used affectionately or teasingly. Rarely used to describe the member, schmuck does that. Def. from the “Joys of Yiddish” by Leo Rosten

    Common Usage: “What a putz!

  24. Please try and forgive the typos Dragon NaturallySpeaking 7 sometime does its own thing!

    -Mensrea

  25. The internet can be interesting in for a few different reasons (otherwise it’s quite dull, IMO). One thing I find fascinating is the discussion of crap, and how the minority who for some reason feel the need to defend crap, usually have very crap arguments and get oblitorated by the slightly more enlightened.

  26. Thanks God! I am so glad to realize I am not the only one to think that this woman is a freak!
    Being French, democrat, and gay, I have felt insulted by her comments. I would’t give a sh** about her if she only worked for a channel like FOX, but why CNN??? How can this channel broadcast this angry biggot who can’t even listen to her guests? Shame on you CNN! You are the largest news channel of the democratic world, and your viewers deserve better than that!
    Peace!

  27. Dear Ms. Martha K:

    I appreciate your response regarding Ms.Nancy Grace, however,I totally disagree with you.
    I found this site by typing in I love Nancy Grace.
    I am a 77 yr. old grandmother and I watch a lot of television.
    Ms.Grace was on Larry King last week to promote her new book, OBJECTION!, which I think you need to read. It explains a lot about Ms. Grace and her life in Atlanta as a prosecutor.
    She was also asked by Larry about the 11th circuit court and her reprimands. She answered with dignity and said that she appreciated the court being in place and that she did learn from the reprimands.
    Ms. Grace left Atlanta when the DA decided not to run again after I think being in office for some 30 years. The new DA put a new staff in place, as they usually do. By chance, the owner of court TV liked Ms.Grace because he had seen her in court on many cases that were broadcast on court TV.
    She had many offers from different defense attorneys offices in the Atlanta area, but she did not want to be a defense atty. This is not why she went to Law school. She went to be a public servant. The owner of court TV offered her a job with the late Johnnie Cochran as her sparring partner in a show named Cochran and Grace. That is how is got to court TV. Not because of the infractions with the 11th circuit court.
    Now, as far as Ms. Grace being a belle, I disagree with you there, too. She is a beauty with much charm and style. She had to be strong to get through law school and since she finished at the top of her class, she had to be intellegent.
    As a child, Ms. Grace was a Jackson fan. She won a dance contest dancing to “rocking robin”, by Jackson. She was crushed when Jackson started all of this mess he has gotten himself in. Yes, I do believe he is guilty. So, she therefore, had talent in order to win the contest.
    She is therefore, a southern belle.
    I do not like ugly words like the ones used on this place, so this will be my last visit, but I felt I had to respond to your comment.
    I do hope that you are a southern belle as well, since you are from Tenn.
    I have several attorneys in my family and one that is in the statehouse as a senator, so I do respect all lawyers. You have a hard job.
    God bless you, dear!

    Miss Kitty Poole

  28. Oh, Miss Kitty Poole, will you be my new grandmother? I don’t care about Nancy Grace, have never seen her (which, judging by all these comments, is probably a blessing), but you sound absolutely marvellous! If I ever get to make a much longed-for trip to the usa, particularly the southern states, can I come and visit you, and sip iced tea while sitting on the porch swing?

  29. Dear Ms. Kitty Poole,

    It seems that we got our signals crossed.  My closing line “SHE IS A DISGRACE MARTHA K

  30. nancy grace is nothign but eye candy dumb bitch need to stfu and do sumthing else with ehr life like fuck you u brutal bitch

  31. Hey, if you don’t like her, don’t watch her.. I’m sure you all have remote channel changers!!

  32. Way ahead of you, Deborah. Every time I see her ugly mug come on TV I yell “PUTZ!” and hit the channel changer as fast as I can. Makes me feel better every damned time I do it.

    But that’s not going to stop me bitching about her on my blog if I want to. Putz.

  33. Les, could you do all of us a favor
    and have the newest post first, then
    we can read the new ones w/o having to
    scroll down through them all the ones that we have already read. It would help so much. It would
    be much appreciated. Thanks much Les!

  34. Les, could you do all of us a favor
    and have the newest post first

    Don’t presume to speak for everyone. I personally hate the “newest post first” style in a thread and there are several blogs that I don’t read just because of that structure.

  35. This is the most horrible shit I’ve ever seen. I work for a daily in Canada and try to stay away from CNN. I was flipping channels and it was like trying to look away from a car accident. HEADLINE PRIME is the hugest joke I’ve ever seen. I just heard her say, “Well, I am outraged.” I love that she’s trying to be objective. Now we have “Anastasia” who has a lovely accent but the most horrible manner of delivering news I’ve ever seen. Well, second to Nancy Grace.

  36. Sorry bout that KPatrick. Guess when backward, rednecks read it; does make sense to have things backwards. Build a bridge and get over it!
    Les, still think it is a great idea!

  37. Thank you so much decrepitoldfoll! I appreciate it much! Have a great day!
    Claudia excaim

  38. I’ve tried it both ways and I have to say that I prefer the oldest to newest method I’m currently using. Feels more like a conversation that way.

    Not to say I haven’t tried to make getting around the thread a bit easier. You’ll note that the links in the email notifications for a thread will jump straight to the comment referenced instead of making you go to the start of the page and scroll down. Same with the Most Recent Comments links.

  39. I am sick of all you bleeding hearts out there.Nancy Grace gets the job done.If she wasnt the way she is,the aruba police would still be scratching their asses on the natalee holoway crime.And it is a crime.There is a beautiful young lady missing,and all you can do is wine about how tuff she is “abrasive” i think I read,if it was your daughter or your problem you all would be singing a different tune.So shut the hell up and face reality.This is a very disturbed world with alot of misguided people in it.Wake up and smell the coffee!
                  Thank You.

  40. I’m sick of idiots like you, Janice, who can’t even be bothered to punctuate your comments properly. Do you really expect me to take you seriously when you can’t even capitalize your own first fucking name?

    Nancy Grace is a putz and it’s apparent you’re a putz too. At least you’re not alone.

  41. There is a beautiful young lady missing,

    Holy Crap!  Are you serious!  There’s actually a white woman—missing—.  OMG.  This is serious!  Why haven’t they diverted troops from Iraq to join in the search?  Maybe we could fly those folks from the Congo out to Aruba, and have them help out—I mean, they’re not really that busy (Ok, aside from, like, hacking each other into little pieces with machetes, but they’d probably enjoy a break from the whole genocide thing.  I mean, that’s got to get tiring.)

    if it was your daughter or your problem you all would be singing a different tune.

    Uh.  yeah.  ‘cause then it would be our problem.

    Let me try your approach on for size; I just want to make sure I’ve got the technique down.

      “if you fell out of a really tall building, you wouldn’t be laughing then!  ‘Cause it would really hurt!”

    the aruba police would still be scratching their asses on the natalee holoway crime

    As opposed to our fine American police, who respond to all crimes in a prompt and timely manner, cheerfully put themselves at risk, and are willing to contribute all the man-hours you might possibly want, no matter what your race or socio-economic status might be.

    This is a very disturbed world with alot of misguided people

    Possibly.  Although I favor the ‘misguided world with a lot of disturbed people in it’ interpretation.  But I don’t want to start a war between the VDW and the VMW factions, so I’m willing to let the issue drop.

    I am sick of all you bleeding hearts out there

      And I find you myopically WASPY windbags rather tiresome.

    Wake up and smell the coffee!

    It’s French Roast.  or Colombian.  Actually, I think it’s Sumatran.  (mmmmm.  Sumatran—like I could tell the difference.  I drink it like I drink alcohol—for the effect, not the taste).

    Thank You

    For what?  Not swallowing you whole, like a snake devours a tiny kitten?  Think nothing of it. snake

  42. There is a beautiful young lady missing,

    What the hell does beauty have to do with it?  Are you saying if it was an ugly older woman, it wouldn’t be important?

    Nancy Grace gets the job done.If she wasnt the way she is,the aruba police would still be scratching their asses on the natalee holoway crime.

      Oh, have they found her already?  No, wait… she’s still missing, and Aruba police are still not sure what happened. 

    Thank You

    You’re welcome.

  43. This is to Les,My point exactly,small things amuse small minds.Hopefully you never encounter serious problems,I can see how you would handle them,burry your head in the sand.Shame on you.Something so petty as how i use punctuation and don”t capitalise my name???? where the hell you from?spusm maybe? get a grip.Les.Do you ever read the paper or listen to the news? Do you know how stupid your letter to me looks???? petty,petty petty.

  44. So you admit you have a small mind? That’s pretty big of you. A couple of comments from me and you’ve got me all figured out already, eh? You know what they say about assumptions.

    Yes, I do read the paper and watch the news occasionally, though I fail to see how that has any relevancy to the rest of your idiotic missive. And my comment to you surely doesn’t look any more stupid than you’ve managed to make yourself look. As long as I don’t sink below your already amazingly low standards I’m sure to look like a genius in comparison.

  45. Something so petty as how i use punctuation and don”t capitalise my name????

      Sorry, Janice, if you are going to come to a site and try to debate issues and ideas, your command of the language is important.  Inability to properly form coherent sentences implies several things.  You are either uneducated, can’t bothered to take the time to represent a good argument, or you are a functional illiterate.  None of these bode well for your ability to use logic to prove a point.  The occasional typo or even the inadvertant switching of something like “there” and “their” is understandable, but consistent poor grammar, syntax, spelling (“burry”?), and punctuation lead one to think that yours is a small mind with nothing of interest or validity to add to any discussion.
