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).

HERE ARE THE FACTS:

Our fall fundraising drive is off to a rough start, and we very much need to raise $250,000 in the next couple of weeks. If you value the journalism you get from Mother Jones, please help us do it with a donation today.

As we wrote over the summer, traffic has been down at Mother Jones and a lot of sites with many people thinking news is less important now that Donald Trump is no longer president. But if you're reading this, you're not one of those people, and we're hoping we can rally support from folks like you who really get why our reporting matters right now. And that's how it's always worked: For 45 years now, a relatively small group of readers (compared to everyone we reach) who pitch in from time to time has allowed Mother Jones to do the type of journalism the moment demands and keep it free for everyone else.

Please pitch in with a donation during our fall fundraising drive if you can. We can't afford to come up short, and there's still a long way to go by November 5.
