Today’s Headlines

Stuff in teh nooz:

President Obama actually thinks before making decisions. The Right calls this a sign of weakness, of course.

Rumors say Lou Dobbs is planning to run for President. That’s funny enough, but here’s the punch line: He’s reaching out to Latino voters.

Mandated insurance probably is not unconstitutional.

Michelle Obama wears great dress to state dinner.

Why the Senate sucks

Update: Sarah Palin supporters — dumb as socks.

Thanks to joan16 for this one — Dana Perino says there were no terrorist attacks in America while George W. Bush was president.

  1. In the old days of Congress up through the 80s and into the 90s, we had reasonable in the Senate and the House. We no longer deal with reasonable people any more. I started the Palin video and saw that it was 8 minutes long; and, knew I could not endure 8 minutes of that. Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. The last guy in the video said “I think you’re gonna see crowds like this where ever she goes”.
    Sadly, we will…….
    Critical thinking be damned!
    Did I see Cheney in drag in the first part of the video?

  3. Eight minutes of listening to Palin supporters? I cant’ do it. I’d rather stick my private parts in a blender and put them on frappe, or mince. The pain would be the same as listening to their stupid $#!T! But, at least I’d learn something. Not only wouldn’t I do it again – I couldn’t… At least I know to stop self-mutilation, even if it’s only invloves the soul, not just the body. I hope that’s a sign of maturity.

  4. I watched that video yesterday. None of those people had a clue as to what she stood for. I’m glad my parents recently left Columbus to live near my brother in Pennsylvania. Now I never have to go there again!

  5. Check out the New Liberal Media youtube channel, some other good videos, not just lambasting these easy marks.

  6. I discovered the marvellous Gin and Tacos blog, which, in my mind, did the best review ever of Going Rogue. It starts out:

    Following American politics for the last two decades (and teaching about it for the last six years) I often feel like our political spectacles have taken on the air of an elaborate Dadaist performance piece, with each “Tea Party,” Fox News segment, and Republican Savior more egregiously blurring the lines between reality, farce, and surrealism. We watch each Sarah Palin or Bobby Jindal speech fully expecting Ashton Kutcher to appear and let us in on the joke, informing America that it has in fact been punk’d and laughing uproariously at our gullibility. Our collective capacity for credulity has been strained to breaking.

    Now we are faced with the daunting task of wrapping our minds around the Palin memoir Going Rogue, appearing atop a bestseller list near you. Millions of copies will be sold of a book written by someone who can’t write, intended for an audience that doesn’t read, about the thoughts of a person who doesn’t think.

    (my emphasis above). Obviously SP connects with her supporters on other dimensions than the intellectual. On an emotional level, they think she’s just like them, and so what’s not to like. The last one to pull off this glad-handling of the masses was GW Bush, but his ability to affect a “one of the guys” emotional connection with the commoners was nowhere as thorough as the Queen of Wasilla. Idiocracy indeed.

  7. Robert Palmer’s “Addicted To Love” video springs to mind. A wee bit ‘o lyrics changing , and the dancing girls fitted with Palin glasses would be a hoot.
    Are you listening, Mad Kane?
    Does that sound good on paper?

  8. That statement by Perino just makes me want to bang my head against the wall! It really hurts to see such intentional obliviousness, and to make it worse that clown Hannity just joined in with an equal amount of density. It makes me want to scream in disbelief at the level of stupidity that people can obtain!

  9. Is anyone else shocked that the beef industry hasn’t said anything about the dinner being vegetarian? I may have missed it since I haven’t been watching tv much, but I must say, if they will take Oprah to court over a comment on beef, my guess is they would not want people to start thinking about dinner without meat.

  10. re Perino, I have to wonder if she is on something. She certainly can’t be considered an unbiased reporter.
