Hillary’s Speech.

August 26, 2008

I listened to it on the radio on the way home. I gotta admit, I wasn’t sure what to expect. The first, what, quarter was setting the theme, “vote Obama”. The second part, was essentially her stump speech, and “me, me, me”. As it went on, I kept thinking, man, she needs to bring this back to Obama. The last third, was just what she needed to do. The “were you in it for me…” section was especially excellent. She really called out the dead-enders in that section. I suppose I could nitpick and say she spent too much time talking about herself, but realistically she needed to recap her campaign to make the last part work.

Aside from the orange pant suit (WTF? watching the Tivo as I write this) and the fact that her voice grates on me overtime, I have to say she gave a hell of a speech, she tied her campaign to Obama, smacked around McCain, listed her accomplishments. Home run in my book.

Thank you Hillary

Now I wonder if the media will drop the Clintons Vs Obama meme. HA! sorry…I know, I know, I’m such a kidder.

Fox finds out about freedom of speech.

August 24, 2008

Crooks and Liars has the video I read about earlier in the day and couldn’t wait for them to post.

A Fox reporter gets in the middle of a crowd of protesters, oh I’m sorry “Leftist” protesters* as the title card under the in house reporter reminds us, and asks one person what they are protesting. I’m sure the person saw the little FOX logo on his microphone and said “Fuck Off”. The reporter starts getting all Geraldo yelling about freedom of speech, wondering why no one will talk to him, missing the fact entirely that they were protesting (freedom of speech) and practicing they converse, freedom of not speaking to a Fox reporter. The reporter is eventually swarmed by by people who start chanting “Fuck Fox News”. Hilarity ensues.

Free speech at it’s finest, and I’m sure Fox will get a lot of play at the “look at the Obama liberals who are taking over this country”. Fine. I’m just waiting for the FCC to fine Fox for allowing obscenities on the air. I mean the NFL now includes a five second delay in case a mic picks up a stray comment. CBS was fined for Janet flashing her tit so quick that you had to Tivo it to see it. I look forward to the Malkins and moralists to start deluging the FCC with complaints.

* why is it you only see Democrats called leftists on Fox News? I don’t know of any other network that uses the term leftist unless it’s referring to say, Chavez or some other extremely radical group somewhere in a distant country.


Mark Halperin speaks on This Week…

August 24, 2008

…and all that comes out is “hmmf, hmmmf, hmmmf”

I’m wondering Mark, does McCain’s penis taste different than W’s?

Mark’s “performance” as it were, on This Week during the roundtable was one of the most shameful and transparent shilling for McCain I think we’ve seen in the the campaign yet. Apparently the McCain “Seven houses gaff” is a bad thing for one of the candidates, and that candidate is Obama. See apparently instead of tying in to the bad economy, the gaff instead gives McCain the go ahead to start sliming Obama with Wright, etc. Like he wasn’t going to do that anyway.

The McCain Penis is so far in Halperin’s mouth that John Cole has awarded his Golden McPenis to Mark Halperin. An award so presitegious, that this is only the second time it’s been awarded.

What a total fucking douche. How does he still have a job? Bill Kristol gets plenty of face time, but he doesn’t pretend to be a journalist. We all know he’s a Republican hack, he knows he’s a Republican Cheerleader. Halperin on the other hand pretends to be a “journalist”, and then spouts garbage like this.


McCain Has Seven Houses, Obama Eats Arugula

August 21, 2008

Who cares. Yeah I know what Obama’s doing he’s trying to reflect the “eliteism” charge on to McCain. Yes McCain couldn’t tell you how many houses he and Cindy own. Yes, by the current standards McCain is more “elite” (I will give props to Obama on the quick turn around).

However “elite” is what we should be aiming for in a president, and the problem is the whole definition of elite has been twisted so much we’re giving Webster an aneurism. Athletes aspire to be elite, better, stronger, faster than their competitors. Politicians should too, they should be smarter, more knowledgeable and agile than their opponents. In a perfect world, I suppose, they would be and would be elected for their skills.

I believe we’re entering what Obama once termed the “silly season”. When the candidates and media are arguing over who’s more “elite” (read: is more well off) and who’s the bigger patriot. It’s stupid, unproductive, uninformative and how Bush got elected, which got us into this mess in the first place.

If you’re voting based on who has the least amount of houses, or what their salad choices are you’re an idiot and should have your right to vote revoked. The media that pimps this garbage, well…that’s a whole other story. I’d appreciate it if we could stick to the issues, but apparently that’s too much to ask.


I admire Rush Limbaugh.

August 20, 2008

As a broadcaster he really is top notch. I say this as a radio nerd. I love radio and its history. He is however a very disgusting and lonely person, who I’d feel bad for if he wasn’t such a vile hypocrite.

Today:

Rush Limbaugh said that “it is striking how unqualified [Sen. Barack] Obama is and, and how this whole thing came about with, within the Democrat Party. I think it really goes back to the fact that nobody had the guts to stand up and say no to a black guy.” Limbaugh went on to say: “I think this is a classic illustration here where affirmative action has reared its ugly head against them.

I’d might be outraged, but instead I’ll sit smug, knowing how miserable his life actually is, and that it will remain that way until he dies.


Jack Cafferty asks a simple question…

August 19, 2008

Is McCain another George W. Bush?

Answer: Yes.

When Cafferty gets his own show, I’ll think about flipping on CNN again.

In other related bobblehead show news:

Rachel Maddow gets her own show. Good for her. Took long enough, although the should have axed Race For the Whitehouse instead of Dan Abrams. Race started out strong, but man has it taken a shit in the last month or so. I’ve removed it from my TiVo list. Dan on the other hand I was just starting to like.


Jessie Jackson…and..well nuts.

July 10, 2008

What I find most amusing about Jessie Jackson’s recent comments about wanting to “cut his nuts out”. is the fact that all the networks are bleeping “nuts”.

Morons.
