“We Don’t Want To Hear About World War III From Anyone Named Katie”

In the new book, “Schmucks: Our Favorite Fakes, Frauds, Lowlifes, Liars, the Armed and Dangerous, and Good Guys Gone Bad,” Jackie Mason and Raoul Felder offer “their insulting assessment” of Katie Couric‘s performance on The CBS Evening News:

“Perky goes a long way in this country, but one place it doesn’t belong is behind the news desk. Walter Cronkite, Tom Brokaw, even Barbara Walters — these newscasters had and have gravitas. They deliver the news. They do not perch, one cheek on, the other off, the anchor desk. They do not crinkle their eyes or wear glittery lipstick… Forgive us, we don’t want to hear about World War III from anyone named ‘Katie.’”

Couric’s spokesperson responds to Page Six: “Gee, are those two schmendricks [jerks] still alive?”
