OJ's loves to have his itch scratched, and if he can brag about killing those folks (even if he doesn't directly admit to), he's re-living the fact that he did it and got away with it.  I bet he's gettin' a rise outta that.  Heck, I know he's gettin' a rise out of it.

I will never understand why this wacky bastard is still depriving some more-worthy-of-life maggots of a good meal.  He's been playing little games like this for a while now:

Quote

In 1998 at the end of an interview conducted by Ruby Wax for BBC1, Simpson mimed stabbing her with a banana while mimicking the theme music from Psycho.
...
In 2001, he was tried for burglary and battery in a Florida road rage case that received some publicity, but he was again found not guilty. This verdict was also covered on live national television on an October morning.
...
During 2003, Simpson filmed a Pay-Per-View comedy special titled Juiced. The show, a hidden camera set up show, drew criticism for a sketch where Simpson attempts to sell the infamous White Ford Bronco at a used car lot, telling the salesman, "It was good for me. It helped me get away." A DVD is planned with extra and uncensored material.

And now this book and TV interview... which there shouldn't even be a market for, but I'm sure there will be, considering that we are the countrywhose taste is keeping Jeff Foxworthy in Armani...

I don't know if the scumbag is winking at us, or if he's been driven mad from getting away with it and wants to get caught after all, or what.  

If he confessed, I think they should be able to try him again.  If nothing else, they could get him for perjury  for lying during the first trial.

I wish one of the surviving relatives had a little more ambition, though... that would be somebody I wouldn't mind getting away with murder.

Cheers,

Zwolf

I wouldn't go that far. Double jeopardy protection can seem really unfair in cases like this, but it's a vital constitutional right that we really shouldn't monkey with. Better that a guilty man go free than that countless innocents be harrassed with retrial after retrial.

I'd agree ordinarily, but in the case of a murderer confessing?  If somebody admitted they killed somebody after the trial, I'd make an exception.  

But, in the case of a confession, I don't really mind skipping the trial and going straight to the execution...

Trivia: when we were all watching the White Bronco chase, I was living in the same apartment (not bldg--*unit*) that OJ had lived in when he first moved to Buffalo to play for the Bills.  

It was creepy.  

(By the time the verdict was in, though, I had moved back to the NYC-area.)

with the taste for OJ (whom I find to be a miserable worm of a human being, if he is that) is comparing apples and oranges. Foxworthy (along with the other Blue Collar Boys) is out there joking about the realities of country living and family life, which some of us experienced and remember fondly (or at times, not so fondly). OJ's out there getting his kicks off the fact that he committed murder, was tried, and walked inspite of the evidence against him.

This is true... it's probably not my best analogy ever. :)  I definitely didn't mean that Foxworthy was evil (I think he's probably a nice fella, actually)... just that the popularity of his material was a sign that we as a people weren't on the verge of entering any new stage of enlightenment. :)  I would have used Larry the Cable Guy (a.k.a. Dan Whitney the totally-faking-it mofo from Nebraska) as a better target, 'cept I don't think he's got any Armani... :)   And I couldn't use Ron White, 'cuz Ron White is actually sorta a genius...

FOX is one extremely cynical corporation.  First they run the kind of shows conservatives usually complain about on their channel, and actually pioneered a lot of the sleazing-up of TV (I remember well an uber-conservative boss of mine ranting about how Married With Children was a sign of liberal permissiveness that would cause God to turn his face from us :) ), then they played to the conservatives with FOX News... and now they've opened a new wing to court the religious with their FoxFaith imprint.  It's hilarious to me... mock Ned Flanders types on one channel, kiss up to 'em on the next!   It's like no matter what Fox channel you watch, they'll make you a hypocrite some way or another...

Actually, of all the Blue Collar guys, he's my least favorite.  I like the other three (Bill, Jeff, and Ron) much better.  Ron's latest, "You Can't Fix Stupid," was on Comedy Channel a few weeks ago and I watched it again for the umpteenth time.  Fantastic stuff.  Loved it.  Mel and I went and saw Bill Engvall live recently; his new routine is actually much better than some of his older stuff.

I think Larry's stuff is sorta funny, sometimes, but he's definitely about as low-brow as it gets... and he is totally faking it.  It's kinda like this... I don't really dislike Larry, but I think the smackdown that David Cross gave him is one of the funniest things ever! :)

Yep, I'm a Ron White fan.  He's easily the smartest one of the bunch. :)

Quote

Mel and I went and saw Bill Engvall live recently; his new routine is actually much better than some of his older stuff.

Bill Engvall's okay, I like him alright.  He's kinda like Jeff - a "safe" comedian.  I run more toward the Bill Hicks, Sarah Silverman school, but there's nothing wrong with "safe" once in a while.  Henry Cho's also not bad, safe-wise.  He's kind of an "unofficial" Blue Collar Tour guy... I don't know why they don't just bring him on in, full time. :)

Mmmm... maybe, but if it does, watching The Simpsons and stuff once in a while makes me one, too, so, I can't throw any rocks. :)  There's nothing wrong with watching any of 'em, really, but they are kinda using us all in one way or another... :)

OJ is a waste of oxygen. What a vile, disgusting, money grubbing, arrogant *a$$h*le. He's basically laughing in our faces "Haha ha, I got away with it. Now give me some more money so I can taunt my victims families some more with the fact that I can get away with ignoring the civil judgement too". :angry: FOX should be ashamed of itself for giving that POS a forum of any sort. To this day, I don't know how that jury sleeps at night, having left that walking disease go free.

Hopefully, they'll cave and pull this from the schedule. I'd also settle for a judge to issue an injunction on them if the Goldmans go after this.

I almost feel sick thinking about OJ talking about this and profiting off his crimes.  And I worry so much about those two kids.  


BTW....Barbara Walters said yesterday on The View that they had offered her the chance to do this interview and she told them NO!!!!

She wanted nothing to do with him or this book.

I wonder how many people and networks they shopped this interview to before FOX jumped on it.?
