DISGRASIAN OF THE WEAK! Bo “Katie Couric Looks Oriental” Dietl

November 13th, 2009 | 4 comments | Posted by Jen

On Monday, former NYPD detective, private investigator, and FOX News regular Bo Dietl went on Don Imus’s Imus in the Morning and managed to insult both Katie Couric and Asians in the span of a minute-and-a-half.

Take a look:


  1. “She’s got her eyes pulled so far, she’s starting to look Chinese herself.”
  2. Look, as much as I’ve wanted Katie Couric to be an honorary member of the tribe since her thorough dismantling of Sarah Palin during the presidential campaign–which Palin’s still crying about–there’s no way that even I could say homegirl passes:

As you all know, DISGRASIAN loves a football player, sometimes even of the faux variety–like Office Linebacker Terry Tate. But we love Tate for a few other reasons too, like…

a) his appreciation for the importance of reading

b) his familiarity with Katie Couric

c) his ability to really “get inside” the Republican Vice Presidential candidate’s world

d) his size

e) his “Woooooo!”

…But really, why choose?

Gotcha Again: Sarah Palin Reads!

October 1st, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

In yet another installment of her ongoing interview with Katie Couric, Governor Palin was asked to divulge what news publications she’d read prior to her bid for VP, aiding the development of her positions on the issues (jump to 3:45 of the clip below).

Transcript below:

COURIC: And when it comes to establishing your worldview, I was curious, what newspapers and magazines did you regularly read before you were tapped for this to stay informed and to understand the world?

PALIN: I’ve read… most of them–again with a great appreciation for the press, for the media, coming fr–

COURIC: Like What ones, specifically? I’m curious that you–

PALIN: Um… All of them.* Any of them that have, have, um, been in front of me** all these years…

COURIC: Can you name a few?

PALIN: Um, er, y’know, ‘Weekly World News’ and uh, ‘The New Yorkler’ [sic] and, lessee, ‘The Washington, um, Enquirer’, I uh, I have always loved, just loved reading ‘Fox News’, ‘The Christian Science Monitor’, er, y’know… all of ‘em!***

* Sounds fake but it isn’t
** Huh?
*** This quote is totally untrue, but in such times of darkness the only thing we can do is joke.

Spunky vs. Perky, Round II

September 30th, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

Last week, after Sarah Palin felt a barrage of public shame and ridicule after her sub-sub-par interview with Katie Couric–and was subsequently busted by the media for flippantly stating a position on Pakistan that McCain chastised Obama for during Friday’s debate–she did what any empowered woman running for Vice President would do!

She got Big Papa to hold her hand and pay another visit to that blinky, mean ol’ Katie Couric! Heaven knows daddy McCain could straighten that bitch out (first step: hate the game, not the player)–like only a good man would.

Candidates on the Daddy Issues

Senators Clinton and Obama were both featured in separate interviews on 60 minutes last night, each staking their respective claim for the Democratic presidential nominasian.

I’ve actually been leafing through Op-Ed piece after Op-Ed piece since Super Tuesday last week, trying to nail down the definitive reason for a whopping 75% of the Asian vote in the highly influential state of California going to Hillary. Everyone’s got their theory–whether it be that Asians follow community leaders, or tend to vote for people with frown lines like their grandma’s.

But I think Couric really got to the bottom of it all during the interview last night, while digging into the Senator’s Hardass upbringing:

“President Clinton described your dad, I believe at his funeral, as tough and gruff?” Couric asked. “And I know I’ve read that when you brought home stellar grades, instead of praising you, he’s [sic] say, ‘You must be going to an easy school.’ … That must have been so demoralizing.”

“He really wanted to motivate me. And it worked,” Clinton said. “You know, it really did. He would say, ‘You can do better. You can do better. Keep going. You can do better.’”

“Do you think he’d still be saying, ‘You can do better’?” Couric asked.

“Probably,” Clinton replied.

At long last, we’ve found the answer! Asian voters can smell Hardass Asian Parenting from a mile away. Ergo, the Super Tuesday vote one of solidarity, like thousands of unified Asian-American voices saying, “Hey Hill, our dads didn’t hug us either.”
