THE POLITICS OF BODY PARTS

THE POLITICS OF BODY PARTS
 I'm disappointed. 
     First, in Megyn Kelly, a fellow Albany Law School alum, for her overt and ostentatious attempt to hitch her already rising star to that of the much more accomplished attention hog - note, I did not say whore - Donald Trump. The body language, the facial expressions, the gotcha gender question. The reality TV ratings eyeballs. Apparently having an eponymous show wasn't enough. Perfectly positioned center stage, the only non-male in the "arena," she gave a purposeful performance calculated to make her the new face of Fox News. Can an audition to headline The Apprentice be far behind? Birds of a feather flock together. You're hired!
