Some guy wants SNL to “Decimate” Sarah Palin

I think his name is Chevy Chase? I’m not quite sure who he is…

Maybe he was famous before I was born? and not since then…

From the video (included below) it seems maybe he was a comedian? I mean he seems to be trying to make jokes, I think.

Idk… he looks and sounds like hes about 90 years old. Yet I still can’t imagine how he became famous in the first place?

Maybe he was in silent films? Seems to me thats the only way that people could have bared him.

House passes drilling bill!!! Oh, wait…

Yea… we can drill now. The only problem is that we can only drill where there isn’t any oil.

Oh and in exchange for getting to drill where there isn’t any oil we have to pay more taxes. And I say we for a reason, sure the estimated 18 billion dollars in new taxes will be leavied on the oil industry but, as anyone with half a brain knows, those taxes will most certainly be passed right along to us. Of course the Democratically controlled congress doesn’t understand that because well… they’re working with a smidge less than half a brain… collectively.

But, despite the facts, I can see the headlines tomorrow:

“House passes drilling ledgeslation! Democrats deliver and America falls even more in love with them”

“Democrats in congress win on energy, Nancy Pelosi is hero of the day”

“Nancy Pelosi steamrolls Republicans on drilling, everyone happy”

“Pelosi and Dems save America from energy crisis”

But here’s one headline you wont see:

“House passes 18 billion in new energy taxes, leaves 88% of offshore oil untappable”

Did Greg Gutfeld plagiarize Catherine McNicol Stock? I say, yes!

What else could explain the identical structure, basic claims, and ultimate conclusions of their two latest pieces? Clearly Gutfeld is a sick maniacal scum bag!

How dare he steal work from the beautiful (I’m assuming) and brilliant (this one is self-evident) Catherine McNicol Stock!

But don’t take my word for it, check out their two articles yourself.

Here is the insightful and poetic masterpiece by Ms. McNicol Stock: Intolerance thrives in Palin’s Pacific Northwest

Here is the trashy and lowbrow crap-fest by Gutfeld (here’s the video): Sarah Palin’s Murderous Web Of Death

I’m just glad that Gutfeld’s plagiarizing punditry is relegated to 3am on some channel I’ve never heard of and no one who plagiarizes like him is in or running for a position of importance in this country!

Sharia law now enforced in… Britian?

How is this possible?

Here’s the story from the UK’s TimesOnline.

Now before we all get to hysterical over this it seems that this was less an act of the British government and more a bit of acrobatic loophole diving on the part of Muslim Arbitration Tribunal. And it seems that the court only has authority if both sides agree to give it authority.

But, none the less, “rulings issued by a network of five sharia courts are enforceable with the full power of the judicial system”.

A development that is quite disturbing.

Remembering that day

If you’ve visited my blog before you probably know that I try to post an article one or twice a day on the news surrounding political events of the day. However, on this day, I feel it necessary to forgo my usual routine and take this time to remember.

However, at the same time, I feel that anything I try and write here will inevitably fall short of what is required to honor those who gave their lives that day. Instead I will leave you with a video tribute. It is a simple slide show of pictures set to the song Believe by Yellow Card, a song which never ceases to strike the deepest chords within my heart.

And as we remember those lost on that day we must also remember to be vigilant because if there is one lesson to be learned it is that we are truly engaged in the most important struggle with evil that this world may ever see. That is why I encourage all of you to view the documentary Obsession.

Lest we forget what spawned the events of that day. Lest we forget what we are fighting. Lest we forget.

Is Obama dumb or does he just play dumb when it suits him?

When I look at this latest Gaffe that’s the question I’m left with.

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FPd4yk0x-eg

The important line to note in the video is “You know, you can put lipstick on a pig but it’s still a pig.”

Now, yes, that is a common saying in politics and, yes, even McCain has used it before (though he was calling a piece of legislation a pig and not people). So to someone who doesn’t follow politics in any way shape or form it might not seem like a big deal at all. But for everyone else in the world its obvious that this is intended to be an attack on Sarah Palin.

And its obvious because the most famous line Sarah Palin has ever uttered in her public life came just a week ago when she said “What’s the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull? Lipstick”.

But despite how obvious it is to anyone with half a brain and access to campaign coverage, Obama and his campaign insists on asserting that the pig comments had absolutely nothing to do with Sarah Palin. You know, he just happened to use that lipstick line about pigs the week after Palin made her own famous lipstick reference and now he is shocked and appalled that anybody could make the connection.

Now, honestly, if you take the campaign’s explanation at face value than what else can you conclude than the fact that Obama is just dumb. Seriously. I mean how can you not make the connection between the two lines? Even if you didn’t intend for the connection to be made how can you not see that it would be made?

(I mean come on… even his supporters in the audience made the connection. Are they smarter than he is?)

To me, whats far more likely than the Obama camps explination is that Obama planned on making the pig remark as a twist on Palin’s words, which happens all the time in politics (you know those clever politicians), and I’m guessing he didn’t completely realize that the twist ends up referring to Sarah Palin (and George Bush) as a pig. And I’m also guessing they probably figured even if it was borderline offensive that it would get a lot of attention since it was at a small rally in front of supporters.

And then when it did blow up in their faces Obama and his campaign decided to play the “I’m an idiot and completely oblivious to practically everything” card. A card that the Obama camp has played over and over again with great success.

Think back to the situations around Reverend Wright, Rashid Khalidi, or William Ayres. It seems, at least to me, that Obama always seems to have a piggate/lipstickgate/whatevergate you wanna call it kind of response. In other words he always seems to claim that he was completely unaware of what he or his friends and associates were doing or saying. You know, the old “I wasn’t there when my pastor of 20 years was saying these insane things” or the classic “my friends who either are terrorists or support terrorists are actually “mainstream” and “respected” professors”.

(But, inevitably, the dumbest people involved with the playing of the idiot card are the ones who immediately fold after its played… that would be the media of course)

So, whether you go with my best guess of what happened or if you go with what the Obama campaign says happened their are really only two conclusions to draw from this. And those conclusions are, either Obama really didn’t make the connection before he said the pig line and is thus and absolute idiot or he knew exactly what he was doing and is just pretending to be dumb in order to escape the backlash like he has done time and time again throughout this election cycle.

UPDATE: New idiotic Obama response to the controversy…

Oprah pulls an “Us Weekly” and pisses off fans by dissing Palin UPDATE: (many) Others jump on the “Us Weekly” boat

Apparently Oprah Winfrey and Us Weekly (and now MTV) need to do a little more market research and figure out that their audience consists of more that Huffpo readers and Obamatons because today the Drudge Report broke a story which claimed that Oprah is ignoring fans and staff requests to book Republican Vice Presidential pick Sarah Palin.

And according to Oprah’s response Drudge was wrong. You see, Oprah didn’t block Palin from coming on the show… as Oprah tells it, she never even considered it. Way to tamp down the controversy, people were upset that you didn’t want to book Palin so you tell them “don’t worry, its not that I don’t want to book her, its that I never even considered booking her”.

Although, just judging from the statement Oprah released, it seems that she must have considered booking her since she explains why she isn’t going to book her…

And whats that explanation?

Well, apparently, Oprah doesn’t want to use her show as political platform… as Malkin would say “snort”.

So then… its time to see whether the Oprah fans are as pissed off as the Us Weekly subscribers are.

Yup. Looks like it. (I hope they don’t suffer the same comment “glitch” that Us Weekly happened to suffer)

P.s. Will Oprah follow in Us Weekly’s footprints and start begging people not to be mad at them? (The begging continues)(More Us Weekly free give aways… guess they aren’t gonna bother trying to sell them anymore)

UPDATE: Looks like MTV has pulled an “Us Weekly” and gone Palin bashing… the new sport of fancy on the left. Here’s what happened (here’s video of a Geico caveman bashing palin and her family) and here’s the reaction.

UPDATE: Us Weekly manages to out “Us Weekly” themselves…

UPDATE: Who will be the first major “news organization” to run with this story? (I’m betting on CNN)

SHOCKING UPDATE: Even the nut bags over at the Democratic Underground have experienced Palin Bashing Backlash from pulling an “Us Weekly”… wow

YET ANOTHER UPDATE: Will the “Us Weekly” moments never stop? Here’s a new one from an author who I can only assume was on crack at the time he penned this masterpiece over at salon.com… and of course, the reaction. (more mixed but still exceedingly negative for a site like salon)

WILL THE UPDATES EVER STOP?: Who’s turn is it this time? looks like its Perez Hilton… Here’s the post and the reaction all at once this time. (on a side note… compare the picture of Perez in this Malkin post to the cartoon of Perez on his site, then compare both to the picture of Palin)

A REAL BITCH OF AN UPDATE: (sorry for the profanity but wow is it appropriate) The Washington Post and Newsweek have apparently decided to pull a collaborative “Us Weekly” by letting a woman who can only be described as an absolute bitch post this pile of excrement on their shared website. Here’s the reaction which is all too predictable, yet somehow unseen by anyone at either publication. (Hotair plucked this passage so you don’t have to torture yourself and read the entire thing…)

SICK UPDATE: Looks like the Palin bashing has hit the streets…

IF YOU THINK RAPE IS FUNNY THEN THIS IS HILARIOUS UPDATE: This disgusting insert-four-letter-word-here finally suffers the consequences for here gang-rape related US Weekly moment.

EVEN FOX NEWS UPDATE: Yup… Even Fox News pulls an US Weekly.

ANYBODY SURPRISED? UPDATE: NBC puts Olbermann on Football Night in America. Olbermann manages to pull an Us Weekly.

INEVITABLE UPDATE: Inevitably some one was gonna make up some idiotic claim that Palin is a racist for some idiotic reason. Here is that Us Weekly moment.

US WEEKLY MOMENT OR NOT, YOU DECIDE UPDATE: Its borderline at least… Newsweek does an extreme close up on Palin with no retouching.

NEWSWEEK USES FASHION IDIOT TO TRY AND BASH PALIN UPDATE: This dolt proves that she isn’t qualified to write about anything beyond Jennifer Lopez’s wedgies.

IN MY OWN BACKYARD UPDATE: Not surprisingly some people in Philly want to stone Sarah Palin…

ROSEANNE IS APPARENTLY STILL ALIVE UPDATE: Oh yea, shes also a nut job who thinks Sarah Palin is trying to incite a race war.

VIEW IDIOTS BEING VIEW IDIOTS UPDATE: They’re still laying it on thick…

ANYBODY WHO GOES TO COLLEGE SURPRISED BY THIS UPDATE: I’m certainly not… Nut job professor let off with a warning after forcing students to write Us Weekly-ish essays.

Is Bradley Jacobs of Us Weekly the new Dick Harper?

So, Bradley Jacobs, the senior editor of Us Weekly appeared on Fox News’ American Election HQ at 5:55 today to defend the hit piece they slapped on their increasingly worthless (and I mean by the minute) cover page. And as you may have already guessed, it was atrocious.

But, as the clearly unprepared, stumbling, and bumbling hack, Bradley Jacobs, fumbled his way through the first half of the interview… ok, actually the entire interview… I couldn’t help but be reminded of the scene in “Fun with Dick and Jane” where Jim Carey’s character is taken completely by surprise and gets utterly man-handled (or in this case woman-handled, gosh I’m so clever). I couldn’t help but laugh a little bit… (I can’t say the same of the rest of the content of the interview)

But don’t take my word for it… compare the videos yourself:

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_PvZjVnnTnk

UPDATE: Do my eyes deceive me or did Us Weekly wipe (looks like their comments section is back up and running now… simple glitch or something more?) their site clean of the 5600 (looks like there’s almost 6000 comments now) negative comments they received on their hit piece? (here’s a cached version of the page so you can get an idea of the comments, you know… in case the comments section suddenly goes down again)

UPDATE: More bumbling idiots from the left come out after Palin… Proof positive that her speech hit home!

UPDATE: MASSIVE backlash directed towards Us Weekly…
