Neo-Hippie Ramblings - I'm a Non-Conformist Just Like All My Friends: I hate Nancy Grace

I hate Nancy Grace

I hate Nancy Grace. While her mannerisms do have a distinct 'nails on the chalkboard' effect, and her tendency to damn suspects on scant evidence is offensive in its own right, what really gets to me is the way in which she parades out the murdered and the missing in a tone that I can only describe as vampiric glee.

It's the exact same blend of feigned outrage and barely-controlled orgasmic bliss that Robert Downey Jr. captured perfectly as Wayne Gale in Natural Born Killers -- and not unlike Aaron Brown in the hours and days immediately following 9/11 , totally unable to completely remove that motherfucking smirk from his face.

Anyway, I'm not alone on this one. Check out this quote from Jump the Shark:

Without a doubt, CTV jumped when they brought that horrible obnoxious self righteous judgmental witch Nancy Grace on. She's the only person in the world that actually makes me root for the defendant. When she whines and screws up her face into that sneer, flares those pointy nostrils and rolls her eyes I swear I want to throw my couch at the TV screen. And does she know how to shut the hell up once in a while and let someone else talk? It's like eeeek! Trying to get in a word edgewise here you big mouth. I once played a drinking game with someone during her show but we had to quit because I was afraid I'd get alcohol poisoning. One shot: Every time Nancy makes some lame joke at the defendants expense. Two shots: Every time Nancy says "She's a crime victim" BTW if her fiance hadn't of gotten killed he probably would have shot Nancy by now. Can you imagine having to listen to that sickening venomous honey coated accent everyday? Oh and did you ever notice how she gives this "pensive look" before she cuts away to the courtroom? She'd be a big hit at a charity function. I'd pay 50 bucks to dunk her in a tank. There would be a line wrapped around the building for that, I'm sure.
And here are some gratuitous links to other people who hate Nancy Grace:

Her hair makes her look like the big monster from Bugs Bunny that used to chase him around. But that's just me....

I hate that bitch man! She is so annoying. I was watching her on Larry King Live, and this man who was wrongfully accused of murdering and abusing his girlfriend's son was released. And she is sitting there accusing him of homicide. It was disgraceful. Everytime I hear her name, a reflex kicks in: "I hate that bitch." God damn, is she annoying.

Cool blog.

Haha, Steve. Her voice is enough to drive a sane man mad.

She is like the Southern Rush Limbaugh.
