Are You Turning Against Pat Kiernan?

The constant politicking for a better job. The Times Thursday Styles profile. Paying the highest price ever in Williamsburg for a house (an unattractive house!) on Bedford Avenue. It's the kind of exposure that begs for backlash and, according to my inbox, NY1 hero Pat Kiernan is getting the backlash now. (Personally there's only room in my heart for one Canadian broadcaster, and that's CBC's New York correspondent David Common. Have you seen David Common? PICTURED HERE. That's not Pat Kiernan! Come to where the (maple) flavor is.) The backlash against Kiernan mostly revolves around the fact that if any of us campaigned relentlessly for months in public for a better job at a bigger employer, we'd be invited to depart our jobs.

And yet, this backlash could probably crumple in a second. Pat is ours. If anyone's mean to him, we'll come rushing to his defense. And we just have to remember his charms, and that this will pass. There's a good chance Kelly Ripa & company will snub him, and he'll remain ours. And he'll be OURS FOREVER, and we can always enjoy the pleasure of his wacky company. I mean….

A Neal Diamond impersonator? It just makes me want to ruffle his hair.

@BadUncle: I shared a limo with the lead singer of Super Diamond, a Neil Diamond tribute band. He sang us an a cappella selection from "Forever in Blue Jeans" and sounded EXACTLY like Neil Diamond. It was impressive…

How quickly people forget The World Series of Pop Culture. Pat Kiernan was heroic in that.

I was so proud of myself for getting all the references in the NYCGays Tumblr – but my hubris has been punished: I have no idea who Pat Kiernan is, and this is a painful reminder that I am not, after all, a New Yorker.

@ejcsanfran He's that little bit of News Awesome (or "Nawesome") that gets your through your morning coffee. He reads what's in all the NY papers so you don't have to.

If he starts dating the Hipster Cop, the Internet will crash.

Pat Kiernan is definitely pushing it.

I guess "according to my inbox" is the new "some say…"

We *may* be biased, but we'll never tire of Pat Kiernan.
