“Fasten Your Seatbelt,” here comes Senator Geraldo?

GeraldoUPDATE from Rosi I just want to remind people that the last time Geraldo was in the news was when he said Trayvon Martin’s decision to wear a hoodie was as responsible for his own death as George Zimmerman was. Prompting Geraldo’s own son to say he was ashamed of Geraldo’s idiotic remarks. That’s all. – Rosi

It’s difficult to imagine something this country needs less than a Fox News personality in the Senate, but Geraldo doesn’t agree with me:

“I mention this only briefly, fasten your seatbelt,” Rivera said on his radio show. “I mentioned this only briefly to my wife … but I am and I’ve been in touch with some people in the Republican Party in New Jersey. I am truly contemplating running for Senate against Frank Lautenberg or Cory Booker.”

Oddly enough, the Hill doesn’t mention Lou Dobbs as a potential primary opponent.

So, what’s your best Al Capone’s Vault or Map in the Sand Senate joke?

    That’s what angry radio cowboys like Rush Limbaugh have been calling Geraldo for decades.

    But now that he has a weekend show on Fox News (hard to not put quotes around “News”), he’s running as a Republican.

    This must be what it’s like to not have a soul.

    Doesn’t Geraldo know that the New Jersey GOP already has a statewide cartoon character in Governor Christie?

    days, I must admit, I was a fan of his show. It was the early nineties & he was a pioneer of sorts in the cable news, talk show, pundit format.  Maybe I was younger & naive, but looking back I really think the show help to cultivate the progressive ideals I would like to think I hold today.

    Now, after he left that show to become a “war correspondent” for Fox, he went bat-shit crazy.  Any positive attributes he made to journalism were wiped away and he continues to have no credibility.

    I agree with your conclusion of Geraldo being soulless. I don’t think even republicans will take him serious as a candidate.
