OK, so I'm cruising the wires and I come across an AP story about my great journo-heartthrob, CNN's Daryn Kagan. Seems she's leaving CNN on Sept. 1 and she's planning to start a "good news" Web site devoted to inspirational stories. Ah, I knew she was beautiful, but it turns out she has a rather attractive inner beauty, too.
"I think there is a void in the straight news business now, (which is) lacking a certain spirituality," Kagan told The Associated Press yesterday. "I think most people live in a space where they are looking for meaning in life and good in the world and that is not necessarily reflected in straight news coverage right now."
The story went on to describe the site, www.darynkagan.com, which will appear on Nov. 13, gave some background on this most-attractive journalist, and explored her desire to use her news background to inspire people. Smart, sensitive, beautiful ... God, I am falling love with her all over again ... I'm beginning to imagine us together at our word processors, telling stories happily ever after ... covering wars and homecoming parades and bass tournaments together ... my sweet MSM prime-time princess ...
... BUT WAIT ... what's this? ... she was a girlfriend of WHO???? OMG, there it is, right there in black-and-white:
"'It's important to be informed, but I also think it's important to be inspired,' said Kagan, a former love interest of radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh. ... "
I'm having a great deal of trouble getting this image out of my head. Not thoughtful, sensitive, beautiful Daryn. Not junkie, plumpie, Viagra-popping Rush Limbaugh!
Hmmmm. Paula Zahn is cute, don't you think?
