The Deacon's Bench

The Deacon's Bench

In this corner, The Anchoress…

The popular public affairs show on The NET, “In the Arena” is back on the air, returning for a second season.

And once again the star attractions (from the WWF, it seems) are Elizabeth “The Anchoress” Scalia and Grant “Commonweal” Gallicho. The ringmaster is Jane “Stay Classy” Hanson (formerly of WNBC TV here in New York), while color commentary is provided by Msgr. Kieran “The Collar” Harrington, Vicar of Communications for the Diocese of Brooklyn (and, not insignificantly, my boss.)

The first episode of the season ranged all over the map, from Obama to Tiger to ashes and beyond. It was lively, and sometimes contentious — and I know fans of The A will want to see her in action.

Check it out.

I would give Obama a grade of F-. He is destroying our nation. He has appointed a anti-Catholic bigot to the Faith-Based Advisor post, a homosexual with other problems to the “safe schools” czar, and a host to other nuts to powerful posts in this administration.
By the way, he is still supporting abortion, even with public funding in the health care debate.
Why can anyone remember that a lot of the fiscal problems that we face are the result of the Democratic Congress after 2006. Fannie and Freddie and the mortgage policies were put in place by Democrats–hello Barney Frank, Bill Clinton, etc.
But, I guess that Brooklyn isn’t in touch with the rest of America, cause I’m am disappointed in this panel.

I thought the piece was pretty good. Can’t say I agreed with the positions the three guests took but it was at least peaceful. No one got angry, no name calling. Doubt that I would tune in on a daily basis.

The host was looking at the propmpter and not at the camera, they need to fix that.
