A JAB, A LEFT HOOK AND OUT FOR THE COUNT.Byline: Dennis McCarthy Dennis McCarthy may refer to:
I was invited to some intellectual dialogue over dinner with Arianna Huffington Arianna Huffington (born Arianna Stassinopoulos (Greek: Αριάννα Στασινόπουλου) on July 15, 1950 in Athens, Greece) is an author and nationally syndicated columnist in the the other night.
The doctors say I should be up and around in a few weeks.
Now I know how all those patsies who stepped into the ring with Rocky Marciano and Joe Louis felt. I swear, I never saw the punch coming.
Arianna took me out faster than Ali took out Liston in their second fight. I don't think the salad had even been served yet.
Forget about it. Pound for pound, nobody in the country has a better verbal jab and left hook than Arianna Huffington. Nobody - man or woman.
She levels that ``How can you be so stupid, darling?'' look at you, and before you know it two guys are carrying you out on a stretcher.
``Did I score any points?'' you're asking your friends later when you wake up.
``Nope, you never laid a glove on her,'' they say. ``KO, Round 1.''
I used to hate the woman. Now I'm only scared of her. She makes too much sense.
Let me give you a little background. About a month ago, I received an invitation from publicist Michael Levine to join Huffington and a handful of selected media types for dinner and some intellectual dialogue.
I get invited to a lot of dinners, but never any that involve intellectual dialogue. My hosts usually have read my column. They are well aware of my limitations.
I called Levine's office, figuring he had the wrong McCarthy. His secretary double-checked. Nope, she said. I was the McCarthy they wanted. Obviously, Levine doesn't read the column.
It turns out he started this thing called the Los Angeles Los Angeles (lôs ăn`jələs, lŏs, ăn`jəlēz'), city (1990 pop. 3,485,398), seat of Los Angeles co., S Calif.; inc. 1850.

Noun 1. while trying to figure out why the poor can't be more like us.
You know, hold down a nice job, have a mortgage, two cars, kids in college - the whole nine yards that makes so many of our lives so wonderfully interesting and challenging.
Hopefully, by the time the wine runs out and the waiters gather up our dirty dishes, we've come up with a few answers. Then we can enjoy coffee and dessert, talking about something we really want to have a dialogue about - how well we're all doing these days.
The concept of the round table is commendable, but I've got to figure that if you really want to get down and dirty on what we can do to help turn around this two-tier society of haves and have-nots we're rapidly becoming, this intellectual dialogue should have been going on down at an inner-city Taco Bell Taco Bell Corp., a subsidiary of Yum!

Maybe we could have actually gotten some of the people we were talking about to move their $2.99 specials over to our table and enlighten us a little on what was really going on and how things could change. Instead, we were getting our cars valet-parked in Beverly Hills Beverly Hills, city (1990 pop. 31,971), Los Angeles co., S Calif., completely surrounded by the city of Los Angeles; inc. 1914. The largely residential city is home to many motion-picture and television personalities. .
Why lie? I didn't go to the dinner with any expectations of solving any of society's ills anyway. I went to check out Arianna Huffington.
I've been watching her on the TV political talk shows and reading her column for a while now. The woman captivates me.
I don't know Don't know (DK, DKed)
"Don't know the trade." A Street expression used whenever one party lacks knowledge of a trade or receives conflicting instructions from the other party. whether it's her voice or her mind. There's just something about her. She's not particularly beautiful, but she has these bedroom eyes.
They were staring up at me from the dinner table. Levine had put a copy of her book, ``Greetings From the Lincoln Bedroom,'' on every seat.
After the dinner broke up, she offered to sign everyone's book. Normally, I pass on the personal autographs because then I feel some obligation to actually read the book, instead of putting it straight into the Goodwill box.
But those bedroom eyes of Arianna's drew me to her seat at the head of the table.
``You had some very interesting things to say tonight,'' she said in that sexy voice, taking the book from my hand and looking up at me.
``But . . .'' she added.
I swear, I never saw the punch coming.
