If I’m correct his wife passed away not too long ago. If so, this is especially sad.
A couple of his greatest hits:
Air America Radio
During Cafferty’s time as a co-anchor of CNN’s morning program, he reported on March 31, 2004 that “”It’s a red-letter day here in America. Air America, that communist radio network, starts broadcasting in a little while.” Cafferty was unyielding when CNN colleague Soledad O’Brien responded by saying that the new talk-radio network was not communist but liberal. He replied: “Well. Aren’t they synonymous?”
On the September 26, 2008 edition of The Situation Room, Cafferty criticized Republican Presidential candidate John McCain’s Vice Presidential nominee, Alaska governor Sarah Palin after she did what he referred to as a “disastrous interview” with CBS news anchor Katie Couric when she could not clearly answer Couric’s questions about the federal government’s intervention into Wall Street. Cafferty went on to say that “if John McCain wins, this woman will be one 72 year old’s heart beat away from becoming President of the United States, and if that doesn’t scare the hell out of you, it should!” He went further to say that her interview with Couric was the most pathetic tape he had ever seen. When Wolf Blitzer came to Palin’s defense, Cafferty snapped back indicating “there’s no excuse for that, don’t make excuses for her, that’s pathetic!”
He and Liz Trotta should do a Saturday late-night, like in Cal Thomas’ old slot. Call it “Get Off My Lawn!” or “Put Some Clothes On”, something like that. A little Scotch and a blank check, they’re all set.
They could set in the balcony of THE MUPPETS SHOW.
