....breathlessly informs us about the impending CATFIGHT!!!
Samantha Power, the Harvard professor who was forced to resign from Barack Obama's presidential campaign last spring after calling Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton "a monster," is now advising the president-elect on transition matters relating to the State Department -- which Clinton is slated to head....In short, she is part of a team that is likely to work directly with Clinton, a potentially awkward situation for the two women.The WaPo birdcage liner just HAS to report the story according to the rules laid down at Sulzburger Junior High. Maybe everybody would feel better if they were to settle it with naked pillow fight.
Film on Youtube shortly.........

God's one and only true church, the one that condones priests having buttsecks with the altar boys, tells parishioners that they have committed a mortal sin if they voted for Obama.
A Roman Catholic priest has told parishioners they should confess if they voted for Barack Obama because the president-elect supports abortion.Bullshit like this is just one of many reasons I now consider myself a former and recovering Catholic. The power of hypocrisy compels you.
The Rev. Joseph Illo says his parishioners at St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Modesto shouldn't risk losing their "state of grace" by receiving communion sacrilegiously. He delivered the message in a Nov. 21 letter and during mass.
When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.Then I realised God doesn’t work that way, so I stole one and prayed for forgiveness.

A tip to the state's DrunkBuster hot line Sunday afternoon alerted authorities to a possibly drunken driver.Being the full service blog that we are, we now will provide you, the devoted reader with Video!
State Police Officer Grace Romero spotted the man's pickup truck swerving across both lanes of a highway, driving slowly and then fast. He refused to stop.
After narrowly missing other vehicles, police said the suspect drove through a ditch and a barbed-wire fence before stopping. He tried to put the truck into park, but it ended up in reverse.
Police said the man fell from his open door and both of his legs were run over by the front driver's side tire.

Neocon/misadmin assbag Bill "Always Wrong" Kristol, who's been wrong on absolutely everything, who brought us the Iraq war and Sarah Failin, says Preznit Droolers should not only pardon the people that tortured terrorism suspects, he should award them the Medal of Freedom.
Meanwhile, Bill's hopefully-not-for-much-longer employer, the New York Times, warns in an editorial this morning, “If [Bush] wants to try to reclaim his reputation, he can start by not abusing the pardon power on his way out the door.”
If he does, I hope to God nobody ever has the cojones to mention "Marc Rich" and "pardon" in the same article evar again.

Duhmbya the DisasterMonkey on his legacy: "I'd like to be known as the magical happy unicorn president who brought joy an' free ponies to everyone. lulz"
Preznit GameBoy vonTorturepants, thankfully and finally nearing the end of his final term of raping the Constitution and the citizenry, says he most wants to be remembered as someone who came to Washington and didn’t lose his values.Jeebus fucking Christ. You have GOT to be kidding me.
Someone who didn’t sell his soul to the political process.
Somebody who liberated 50 million people and helped achieve peace.
I'd like to be known as that incredibly hot babe that donated eleventy brazillian to various charities/cheezburgers to the ASPCA on the day you fucking went to prison, you asshat. But that ain't gonna happen either.
Instead, if there is any justice in the world, you will forever be remembered as...
Amen to that.

Thanks to Sirius!
1 whole Turkey (weight is dependant on how many servings are required)
1 large lemon, cut into halves
sprig of rosemary
salt and pepper to taste
butter or olive oil, whichever you prefer
Heat oven to 350 degrees
Rub butter or oil over the skin of the Turkey until it is completely coated
Take a knife and gently separate the skin from the breast meat.
Slide lemon halves under the skin with the peel side up. This way the juice from the lemon will coat the breast. Season skin of the Turkey to your preference, and place sprig of rosemary into it. Cover and place in oven for 2 1/2 - 3 hours.
Remove cover and continue to roast until juices run clear, basting every 15-20 minutes. Total roasting time depends on the size of your bird.
If you've followed these steps correctly, your turkey should look like the one in photo below. Bon Appetite!

People, chill the fuck out, I GOT this:
Seriously, isn’t it amazing just how impressive the people being named to key positions in the Obama administration seem? Bye-bye hacks and cronies, hello people who actually know what they’re doing. For a bunch of people who were written off as a permanent minority four years ago, the Democrats look remarkably like the natural governing party these days, with a deep bench of talent.It’s almost like we have a real President...... But in a drone like predictable mode known as acute Reichwingnuttius Maximus the reaction is the same as usual.......Clinton ver 2.0.
I spent several years of the Clinton administration writing about one scandal or controversy after another.The power of the Clenis COMPELLLLLLLS You! For fucks sake and Jesus Hussein Christ, Reichwingnuttia would still be pissing and moaning about Clinton-era made-up 'scandals' even if Cheney & Bush Jr. assassinated Obama, declared martial law, ate babies, burned the Constitution on national TV and declared Chimpyface McFuckup and Darth "Deadeye" Cheney co-dictators for life.
There was, of course, the Whitewater affair and the fight over the independent counsel, Kenneth Starr. There was the Lewinsky matter. Travelgate. The bitter controversy over Elian Gonzalez. The furor over Bill Clinton's last-minute pardons. And more.
It seems like so long ago. So why am I suddenly hitting the search feature on my laptop ten times a day, looking for old articles? Why am I looking for names like Eric Holder, Gregory Craig, Rahm Emanuel, and John Podesta?
Investigative journalism, returning to a country near you soon.

"Is it chilly outside today? I'm telling you, coming to work today, it was so cold, I was shaking like Sarah Palin taking a geography test." --David Letterman
"Sarah Palin thinks the alphabet has 22 letters. She's so dumb she thinks the capital of China is Chinatown. Sarah Palin is so dumb, she thinks billboards are postcards from giants. The governor of Alaska is so dumb, she thinks soy milk is Spanish for 'I am milk.'" --"Daily Show" correspondent Wyatt Cenac
"Well, according to a new post-election survey, people want Sarah Palin to run for president in 2012. It says she's been getting thousands of calls from people pleading with her to run, all Democrats." --Jay Leno
"Alaska Governor Sarah Palin pardoned a turkey, though she said she was amazed to find out that, besides being a bird, Turkey is also a country. Did you see that all over the internet today? While Sarah Palin was pardoning a turkey, right behind her was a guy slaughtering turkeys. ... But, see, like most internet stories, a little half-true. Turns out that, after a couple of minutes listening to Sarah Palin's voice, the turkeys said 'Kill us now.'" --Jay Leno

Frightening, ballbusting hag Barbara Bush was in good spirits and biting the heads off candy-stripers in a Houston hospital Wednesday following surgery for what a spokesman insisted was a "perforated ulcer."
But why should I waste my beautiful mind on something like that?

mAnn Coulter's jaw wired shut after complications ensued during adams apple reduction surgery. Unfortunately, though, this won't stop her from talking out of her ass.
In a related story, scientists reported that the Panamanian termite's mandible can strike enemies at a world-record 157 MPH.
Above: the most disgusting thing I could think of that isn't mAnn Coulter's ugly, pinched phiz.

In order to preserve the Chimptard's tax cuts for his base, and in a rare moment of fiscal responsibility, an under the radar hail mary statue of liberty pass by the Pentagon has narrowed the military’s definition of combat-related disabilities, costing many
cannon fodder troops thousands of dollars in lost benefits.”
Marine Cpl. James Dixon was wounded twice in Iraq -- by a roadside bomb and a land mine. He suffered a traumatic brain injury, a concussion, a dislocated hip and hearing loss. He was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder.Army Sgt. Lori Meshell shattered a hip and crushed her back and knees while diving for cover during a mortar attack in Iraq. She has undergone a hip replacement and knee reconstruction and needs at least three more surgeries.Why do Rethugs HATE the troops?
In each case, the Pentagon ruled that their disabilities were not combat-related.
You know, it is bullshit like this......................aw never mind.

Racist a-hole Glenn Beck, his remaining neurons finally collapsing under massive doses of his own fail, is shocked and appalled by the downfall of discourse in America. Really. Hmmmmm.
May 30, 2008: Beck calls Hillary Clinton a "stereotypical bitch" and a "nag".
March 4, 2008: Beck asks John Hagee "Odds that Barack Obama is the Antichrist?"
Feb 18, 2008: Beck says "Nancy Pelosi will end up killing Americans."
Jan 28, 2008: Beck asks "[Y]ou ever just picture Ted Kennedy naked?"
Jan 4, 2008: Beck calls "Comrade Clinton" a "liberal fascist," Edwards "a communist."
And that's just the beginning. The good news? He was confronted by a patriot who threatened to run over him with a truck.

Instead of quietly slinking off in ignominy on his way to prison, corrupt windbag Ted Stevens held court on the Senate floor yesterday. In a bathos-inducing paean to himself -- conveniently not mentioning his whopping seven felony convictions -- he walked off to the sound of applause and cockslobbering by his cronies. What a fucking pathetic spectacle. And they wonder why their approval ratings are so low.

Il DuceBag's latest pet AG continues former pet AG's penchant for screwing the populace -- by forcing upon us the tab for defending Constitution-mangler/torturer Alberto Gonzales.
In a stunningly braindead move reminiscent of making a rape victim pay for her own rape kit, Attorney General and Bush toady Michael Mukasey OKed the use of taxpayer bucks to cover the legal bills of the ethically-deprived and disastrously inept former attorney general. Which were incurred by his fucking-over of taxpayers.
Ya think? But maybe there IS a God, as "Mucus" Mukasey collapses under the weight of his own obliviousness:
Sorry. Hope he's OK.

"I don't dislike him," Jeebus's favorite hypocrite told CNN's Wolf Blitzer. "I just think he's an asshole."
Baptist preacher and former repug presidential candidate Mike Huckabee said Wednesday he's not trying to get back at his onetime rival Mitt Romney, despite calling Romney a flipflopping, petulant princess with mommy issues and sprayed-on hair.
Huckabee, who is now the weekly host of what has to be one of the worst infomercials evar, also ripped into tired old napper Fred "Zzzzzzzz" Thompson and Senile McGrumpypants. Not bad for a guy
"This book is not about what's wrong with Mitt Romney or anybody else," he said. "But man, is Mitt Romney a steaming pantload."

Grumpy McThuselah, beaten by Barack Obama and his own horrible campaign in the 2008 presidential race, plans to run for senate re-election in 2010 when he'll be 111 years old.
Because they did such a heckuva job during his campaign.
Not mentioned: whether other top ally Joe the Lieberman was also present.

The Homeland Security Department has done a craptacular job overseeing the purchase of billions of dollars of equipment and technology, a new report by the Government Accountability Office says. The GAO blamed oversight problems on insufficient staff and limited attention paid by senior department officials.
That would be the same Homeland Security Department overseen by Harry Reid's BFF Joe the Lieberman? Huh.

Yes, they really are that fucking stupid.
Duh. Fucking AP. President-elect Obama promised change from the eight miserable years of disastrous governing by Preznit Drooly McGameBoy and his rubberstamping rethug enablers, for petessake. Change from the sit-on-your-hands incompetence and virulent corruption of the past eight long fucking years. The wuz on muh tee-vee/lookit muh pokemons!/gonna cut brush/go fuck yourselves Constitution-raping. Snap out of it.
Oh yeah, I mean after all, the Clinton admin brought us eight years of peace and prosperity, gas below a buck... how friggin' awful to have to go back to those dark, desperate times. President-elect Obama should hire a bunch of neophyte stooges instead of people who actually know wtf they're doing, dammit. Gosh.

No, not for running off with 50 grand in designer duds. Or using state funds to pay for her spawns' hotel bills. Or firing a state trooper. Or character assassination. Or spreading racism and inciting bigotry. Or turning Alaska into an international laughingstock. An ethics complaint filed Tuesday charges that Caribou Barbie broke state ethics rules by holding national television interviews from the governor's office.

Liberal commie hotbed.... what? Texas?? Cool. In what we can only hope will be the first of many, Dick Cheney and former Bush spankmonkey/Attorney General Alberto Ghraibzales have been indicted, on state charges involving "organized criminal activity" related to the alleged abuse of inmates in federal prisons.
A spokeswoman for Cheney declined to comment, saying that the vice president was out shooting at a copy of the indictment.
Gonzales' attorney, George Terdwiggler, said in a written statement, "My client does not recall stopping any investigation, nor does he recall whether he ever held office."

Corrupt republican -- but I repeat myself -- Ted Stevens, indicted on multiple felony counts a month ago, finally sees his re-election bid go down the tubes. Good riddance, scumbag. Enjoy prison.
Mark Begich's win gives Democrats at least 58 seats in the Senate, as the race between Al Franken and asshole-deluxe Norm Coleman in Minnesota is still too close to call (the recount starts today). Well, 59 now that ineffectual patsy Harry Reid has a new BFF. *snort*
