President Obama pardons two turkeys this Thanksgiving morning -- and neither one was named "Tom DeLay"!

Mwahahahaha! Happy T-day, everybody!

Merry Christmas from the GOP!

They're all about extending tax cuts for millionaires who don't need them, but House repukes Thursday blocked the bill that would have extended benefits for the unemployed beyond the holiday season.

Headline in the WaComPo: "GOP may be less eager than Obama for bipartisanship"

Gee, ya think??

After bitching and moaning these past two years that the White House has not been bipartisan (wrongly, as it were), the "newly emboldened" Party of No "have shown little enthusiasm for compromise."

Snort. Really. Wow, who could have seen that coming? Party over country, that's the gpukes in a nutshell. Asshats.

Fux: Obama hates our centuries-dead troops

Faux draws criticism for nooze anchors headlining repug fundraisers... uhh, donating millions to the GOP... damn ... their trollish headline of Prez Obama's new book:

Obama's decision to include Native American leader Sitting Bull didn't go over well with the headline writers at Fox Nation, a Fox News website. Their initial take: "Obama Praises Indian Chief Who Killed U.S. General." (At the time of this writing, the headline has been changed to read: "Obama Praises Indian Chief Who Defeated U.S. General.")

Several bloggers and Fox critics quickly jumped on the site's overheated reaction to the children's book.

"Fox News Turns Obama's Kid Book Into Anti-American War Epic," wrote Gawker's Maureen O'Connor.

The New Republic's Jonathan Chait also poked fun at the network's coverage of the book: "Fox News Exposes Obama As Indian, Not Kenyan, Anti-Colonialist."

"Our Indonesian-Kenyan-socialist president is at it again!" wrote Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank.

Fox News chief Roger Ailes claimed in a recent interview that his network doesn't take unfair shots at the Obama administration. But headlines like this one only give ammunition to the many Fox critics who contend that the network—and sites affiliated with it—will take every opportunity to criticize the Democratic president.

Fox News did not respond to requests for comment.
Of course they didn't.


Not news: Lamestream media pundits caught on tape trashing Sarah Palin during commercial break.

News: It was her Faux Nooze colleagues. Watch the video here.

Alies' fat cells continue to usurp what's left of his brain

In a fawning interview with world-class repuke bootlicker Howard Kurtz, Faux chairman Roger Ailes called NPR executives "Nazis" for firing xenophobic bigot Juan Williams, Prez Obama too "socialist" for our socialist international allies, and Jon Stewart "crazy" for -- get this -- his "polarizing views":

"If it wasn't polarized, he couldn't make a living. He makes a living by attacking conservatives and stirring up a liberal base against it."
Uh, it takes one to know one, I guess. You fucking pig. Honestly.

Fux boob gets one right

Usually vapid ditz Gretchen Carlson sez Palin is "self-defecating" --

Rare sighting: Dems with spines

From our buddy Mahablog:

Four House Dems — Joseph Crowley of New York, Linda Sanchez of California, Donna Edwards of Maryland and Tim Ryan of Ohio — sent an open letter to Republicans in Congress asking which of them would forgo their congressional health benefits:

“If your conference wants to deny millions of Americans affordable health care, your members should walk that walk,” the Democrats wrote to pudfaced dipshit Mitch McConnell and orange-hued weeper John Boehner. “You cannot enroll in the very kind of coverage that you want for yourselves, and then turn around and deny it to Americans who don’t happen to be Members of Congress.”

“We also find it interesting that members of the Republican conference would have no problem taking away health coverage from hard-working Americans, but expect expanded coverage for themselves and their families,” they add, writing that the health care reform bill gives Americans the option of selecting a plan in a manner similar to members of Congress.
More of this please, indeed.

Teabagging twittertwat of the tundra: "I can beat Obama"

Dubbed one of the year's "most fascinating people" by an increasingly senile Barbara Walters, Sarah Palin averred she could whomp the President if she ran in 2012 - though she admitted the biggest challenge would be proving her "record."

"That's the most frustrating thing for me -- the warped and perverted description of my record and what I've accomplished over the last two decades," the serial quitter whined cluelessly.

The reality-show attention-whore then went on to pule over the "lamestream media" for their attention on her personal life, something they have never, ever done to any other political figure evar.

A free hour today! Yays!

Gpukes put party before country

Rethugs actively worked toward ensuring the country failed in order to win the 2010 election.

All but wiped out in 2008, republicans groping for a comeback strategy determined there would be no swift return to economic health under incoming President Barack Obama -- they agreed privately to oppose his major legislation.

Over the next two years, they criticized, attacked, voted against and then attacked some more as Democrats struggled to pass an economic stimulus measure, health care legislation and a bill to rein in Wall Street. Unemployment, 7.4 percent when Obama took office, soared to 10.1 percent, then barely budged for months.

"By sticking together in principled opposition to policies we viewed as harmful, we made it perfectly clear to the American people where we stood. And we gave voters a real choice," said pudfaced jerkwad Mitch McConnell, deserving of a hard kick in his shrivelled nuts.
"Harmful"? "Principled"?? You fuckhats voted nearly unanimously against every effort the Democrats made to help the economy.

And the fucking sheeple bought into it. Sigh.

All of you.

Getting the hell out of DC would be a good start

Republican Whip Eric Cantor wants you to tell him exactly how the GOP should work to reduce wasteful spending.

Bunnypants: McCain was a big ol' poopiehead

In his new book, clearly ghost-written by Millie, the former resident makes Senor Senile McFusebutt out to be what we all saw him as: a cantankerous, stubborn old fool with a huge bug up his ass.

“I was puzzled,” Bush wrote. “He had called for this meeting. I assumed he would come prepared to outline a way to get the bill passed.”

Toward the end of the meeting, McCain finally spoke. Bush complains that he spoke only “in general terms” about how hard it would be for Republicans to back the TARP bill.

“What had started as a drama quickly descended into a farce,” he concludes. “I was watching a verbal food fight, which would have been comical except that the stakes were so high…After everyone had their chance to vent, I decided there was nothing more we could accomplish.”*

Happy Caturday!


Keith Olbermann has been suspended indefinitely without pay.

Earlier [Friday], MSNBC declared that it would be suspending progressive host Keith Olbermann because he violated NBC’s ethics rules by donating to three Democratic candidates for Congress. As many bloggers have noted, conservative MSNBC host Joe Scarborough has donated to Republican candidates for Congress while promoting the same candidate on air, but has never been disciplined.

Media Matter's Eric Hananoki notes that Scarborough gave a local Alabama Republican candidate $5,000 as recently as this year, and CNBC host Larry Kudlow donated $1,000 to Republican Chris Shays in May of 2009. Indeed, Kudlow also serves on the Leadership Council to the Club for Growth, a group that has donated over $2 million to Republican candidates this year. Do NBC ethics rules apply to Scarborough, Pat Buchanan, Kudlow, or other conservatives working for the media company?
Everyone: "IOKIYAR!"

November 5, 2010

What fun. Spent the past few days driving around to employment office, unemployment office, doctors and rehab. Now, a break! Uh oh... the finches are all lined up staring at me. Yep, they're out of bath water. Hold on...

MSNBC’s election night lineup draws criticism from Faux

Oh please.

"We made the decision to give the viewers what they come to MSNBC night in and night out for -- Keith, Chris, Rachel, Ed, Lawrence and Gene, who's joined us for election nights for the past several years," an MSNBC spokesman said.

Fox News, rather than having top-rated dipshits like Bill O'Reilly or Glenn Beck anchor election coverage, went instead with Bret Baier and Megyn Kelly. But the network still gave ample airtime to its stable of conservative commentators, including Karl Rove, Sean Hannity and Sarah Palin.
Fox News drew its own share of criticism from liberals for its 2010 election night coverage. Some pointed out the sheer number of potential Republican presidential candidates on Fox News' payroll, the network's positive coverage of the tea party movement since last year, and owner Rupert Murdoch's large donations to Republican candidates and causes this year.
So fuck you. Honestly.

Fair 'n' balanced

Seen on Keith Olbermann may have violated ethics policy when he donated thousands to Democrats. In other news, the owner of Fox "News" donated $1 million to republicans and told everyone to suck it.

Brainless asshole gives grizzlies, sphincters a bad name

Oh, for the love of crap --

Sarah Palin Complains About Invasion Of Her Privacy On First Episode Of Her Reality Show

Oh good

Prez Obama acknowledges his message didn't get through, so he's embracing the Bush tax cuts compromise. In a related story, Norway was voted the best place to live in a new poll.

That's just gay

More gay voters chose the marriage-is-between-a-man-and-a-woman party in the midterm elections than previously, according to a CNN poll.

Thirty-one percent of self-identified gay voters cast their ballots for Republicans on Tuesday, 4 percentage points more than in 2008.
I'm sorry, but what thave the repukes ever done for you??

No, really, wtf?

When will we address THIS reason why the Democrats lost the midterms?

A must-read to the SCLM from Pam's House Blend:

Per usual, Rachel Maddow destroys conservative lies. It bothers me just a bit that while all these reasons why the Democrats got swamped in the mid terms are floating around, very few are calling attention to the right-wing echo chamber which ratcheted up the lies against Obama and the Democrats, thereby scaring Americans and exploiting covert prejudices against Obama...

And don't even get me started on Fox News. The fact that for the first time in history, a political party has an entire "news" network - the number one news network at that - in its back pocket and pushing its agenda seems to escape everyone. This is a shame because it's significant. And ironic. The clarion call against Obama seems to be that he is a dictator and runs a regime.

Who's more of a product of a "regime?" President Obama or a network fueling a political party?

Faux Nooze talking asshole talks out of his prissy mouth for once

And just like that, Mort Kondracke is labelled a 'liberal' by teabaggers --

"The people who got slapped the hardest in this election — besides Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama {blah blah, dipshit. -Ed.} — are Jim DeMint and Sarah Palin,” he said. “Jim DeMint and Sarah Palin are responsible for the fact that the Senate did not go Republican. They’re the ones who are responsible for Christine O’Donnell. They’re the ones who are responsible for Joe Miller in Alaska. They’re the ones who are responsible for Ken Buck in Colorado. They’re the ones who are responsible for Sharron Angle in Nevada.”

Then Kondracke discussed whether Palin could be the 2012 nominee: "She's a joke even within her own party," Kondracke said. "The idea that she would be the presidential nominee is unthinkable."
But its the Dems that are 'afraid of her.' Right.

OK, we had a frost last night -- but the nasturtiums are still blooming! Up yours, weather! Mwahahahahaha.

A bone to pick with Boner

Rosanne Cash has a few words for John Boehner.

Senile-American can't remember shit

The mavericky ol' bootstrapper must have put his nine or ten well-appointed homes on the market, I guess...

Campaigning in Nevada for Senate nominee Sharron Angle, John McCain -- who himself lives in a Washington-area condo -- attacked Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's D.C. residence:

McCain told the crowd: "We are going to kick Harry Reid out of his penthouse at the Ritz-Carlton and send him back to [his hometown of] Searchlight!"

As Andrew Sullivan pointed out, this is the same John McCain who lost track of how many houses he owns during the 2008 presidential campaign.

ABC News dumps lying sack of shit Andrew Breitbart

For lying about his role in covering the election for the network, NOT because he's a serial liar and trouble-maker in general. Here's the letter they sent him:

We have spent the past several days trying to make clear to you your limited role as a participant in our digital town hall to be streamed on and Facebook. The post on your blog last Friday created a widespread impression that you would be analyzing the election on ABC News. We made it as clear as possible as quickly as possible that you had been invited along with numerous others to participate in our digital town hall. Instead of clarifying your role, you posted a blog on Sunday evening in which you continued to claim a bigger role in our coverage. As we are still unable to agree on your role, we feel it best for you not to participate.
Shit. Why the fuck did they even think it was a good idea to invite him to do anything in the first place???

Biggest stupe on earth driven by 'fierce stupidity'

Richard Cohen lays into the Bimbo of the Icebergs:

Palin's Sunday performance was instructive. This was the show in which she said that the CBS affiliate in Anchorage, KTVA, is staffed by "corrupt bastards." This demure protest from the Evita of the North was a response to a tape in which the station's staffers were overheard saying they would look for a child molester at a campaign stop for senatorial candidate Joe Miller, whom Palin endorsed. "You know that of all the people that will show up tonight, at least one of them will be a registered sex offender," one of the staffers said. Case closed.

But hold on. How do you find a sex offender in a crowd? Do you go from person to person asking, "S'cuse me, but are you a sex offender?" Because if that is not done, then I can't see how you can ever find one. Do sex offenders wear special uniforms? No. It's obvious then that these staffers were joking - playing into the Palin stereotype of them as liberal hacks who would do anything to destroy her. This is what she believes and she recited the story with such obvious conviction that when she ended with the "corrupt bastards" tag, it seemed downright appropriate.

The fierce stupidity of this woman is hard to comprehend. It is the well from which she draws her political sustenance. It explains why she did not pause to wonder about the tape and the sheer impracticality of finding a sex offender in a crowd. This sincerity, uncomplicated by any sophistication whatsoever, is what fuels her considerable charisma. The fact that KTVA is only a CBS affiliate and the staffers not CBS employees did not give Palin pause. To her, this was Katie Couric's CBS, the network she thinks so unfairly skewered her by asking, for instance, what newspapers she reads. It's all a seamless conspiracy of them - they and them and those and them and all those elites who . . . she'll show 'em.


Keith Olbermann suspends his ‘Worst Persons’ segment after Jon Stewart's comments at the rally over the weekend --

In his "Countdown" intro Monday night, the MSNBC host again slammed Stewart's "false equivalence" between his own network and Fox, but he acknowledged that "the overall message that the tone needs to change, that the volume needs to change, was not lost on any of us."
Son of a bitch. Faux Nooze isn't going to turn all mamby-pamby and reasonable over what Jon Stewart said -- or lay off being lying, partisan asswipes just because Olbermann won't be going all apeshit on their asses. Come on. Arrrggghhhhh.

Who's hating our freedoms again?

Thanks to our buds at Alternate Brain!

November 1, 2010

OMG, its November already! Its not time for snow pictures yet, thank God. We still haven't had a frost here. The 4 o'clocks and nasturtiums are still blooming, which is pretty cool, and the catnip is thriving -- all the kittehs line up in anticipation whenever I open the back door. : )

I know, I know, I only post once a month now (heh), but the family situation just drains me. When I do get a break I spend it laying on the couch in a stupor. Plus the times I've had the news on its been so infuriating, the smug levels through the roof, that I'm really loathe to watch it again.

Well, enough of this blathering. Let's see what's going on in the internets!

You're damn right I remember


Oh, go hibernate already

Noted stupe Sarah Palin says Prez Obama "blew it" by not fixing in two years what it took GW Bush and the repukes eight years to utterly destroy.

"They're going to say we gave you two years to get the economy rolling in the right direction," Palin said on Fux, adding that she believed the situation in the nation was "getting worse."
Um, we gave him FOUR years. You brainless twat. And it hasn't gotten worse, you stupid fucking piece of shit. And so, what's your plan for fixing it, you fucking quitter? Christ.

Rally to Restore Sanity turns crossfire on media

The Jon Stewart/Stephen Colbert rally draws 250,000 -- according to Comedy Central -- or just a few thousand, according to Faux.

"God Hates Rallies," declared one missive. "God Hates Snuggies," went another. Still a third: "I am pretty sure God Hates Us All Equally." There was a yellow Gadsden flag - the ubiquitous Tea Party emblem - but instead of "Don't Tread on Me," it read, "OMG, Snakes!"

Among the most devastating sections of the rally were a series of "fear montages" Colbert played during a mock-debate with Stewart, showing the role of cable news in particular in whipping up the state of alarm and antagonism that the rally was reacting against.

Again, the major target here was the media, or "the politico-pundit perpetual panic conflictinator," which, Stewart said, instead of using its magnifying glass to bring problems into focus, was using it "to set ants on fire."

Gabriel Snyder, formerly of Newsweek and Gawker, said on Twitter, “the Rally to Restore Sanity turns out to be history’s largest act of press criticism.”
And well-deserved, I must say.

Update: our bud Jon Ponder reports that the rally was 2.5 times larger than Glenn Beck’s ‘Sermon on the Mall’ in August.

Next for the Demoncraps: Stop that f*cking idiot!

Leading Democrats, frightened -- hell, utterly petrified -- of the popularity of Caribou Barbie, will be pulling out all the stops to derail ... wait, what?

Top Republicans in Washington and in the national GOP establishment say the 2010 campaign highlighted an urgent task that they will begin in earnest as soon as the elections are over: Stop Sarah Palin.

There is rising expectation among GOP elites that Palin will probably run for president in 2012 and could win the Republican nomination, a prospect many of them regard as a disaster in waiting.
In what respect, Charlie? Well, in that everyone may finally realize what a total fucking brainless nimrod she is and just hand the election over to Prez Obama on a fur-lined tray. Sweet.
