Hehe --- they funny ..... hehe .....

I've been of the opinion for quite some time that the right-wingers haven't much of a cognizant sense of comedy. I mean really -- show me the equivalent conservative version of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart that is just as successful.

Anyway, please watch this video clip. It is not satire, it is a real video trailer from a real documentary that the Tea-baggers think is just the fo' shizzle. Funniest doggone shit I've seen in a very long time.


Cat Fight!!

Some liberal "elitist" ladies have a few things to say about Queen Sarah.


Jesus Flu . . .

Maher making sense.


Sigh ..... the quest and the goal are always far ...

Please -- send me your best Glenn Beck sycophant, or Fox News cultural warrior bullshit -- I'm in in need of both comedic material and a good laugh . . .

The 2012 GOP Dream Ticket . . . .

Palin/Beck 2012!

Oh please oh please oh please oh please. Please oh please oh please oh please, please . . . . if there is a God, please oh please oh please oh please, please grant me this one wish. Lol.


The Fight Must Go On . . .

There are times when I tire of the battle against ignorance and hatred. Times when I feel it's all a big waste of time and effort and nothing will ever change so why worry or bother. And when those awful, defeatist feeling's hit me, I simply desire nothing more than to get up and walk away from it all and just say - Fuck it! Let 'em say what they want to say and let 'em do what they want to do - why should I care?

And then I see things like this [picture of billboard seen in Missouri this week]:

and this [picture of billboard seen in Colorado this week]:

. . . and I'm starkly reminded of why I fight them. And it also helps me understand much more clearly why it is that I must continue to face off against these bastards. And so with renewed vigor I renew my vow to keep exposing the true America haters and to never shut up about it.

Because it boils down to this -- the kind of future United States of America that the right-wing goons have in mind for this country is not the kind of future I want for my children and grandchildren. We saw a glimpse of that kind of future these past 8 years from the constitution shredding, war-mongering, disaster-capitalism, neo-con assholes and that alone was enough to make me want to get involved and do everything in my humble power to stop them.

Anyhow, I've obviously gotten over my temporary crisis of faith in the cause of Truth, Justice and The American Way and so I willingly and with great gusto throw myself back into the fray. Let's get it on!

And as far as those of you -- family, friend, anonymous reader, who are of the opinion that the 8 years of Bush/Cheney/GOP rule were the greatest thing to happen to America since sliced bread ---- well, I only have one thing to say to you all -- Fuck you and everyone who thinks like you. But as god is (purportedly) with his sinners -- I still love you. : )


Stewart vs. The Fear Mongerers

Thanks Jon for doing the job this country's mainstream media (along with the Democratic party leaders) is too gutless and craven to do.

The Rude one speaketh . . .

The Rude Pundit contemplates the unholy existence of Ann Coulter and Sarah Palin. Excerpts from each column:

On Ann Coulter:

And then the whole fucking column explodes into a mushroom cloud of bugfuck insanity the likes of which haven't been seen since William Safire kept writing love poems to an invisible marmoset in his later New York Times columns: "Next time you're at a cocktail party, just start saying, 'Chocolate pudding is dramatic irony' from time to time. Eventually other people will start saying it, without anyone bothering to consider whether it makes sense." You get the point? It's a nonsense phrase, like "diversity is a strength."

You don't? No, of course not. Because what you are actually witnessing is the pathetic last heaves of outrage-mongering by Ann Coulter, who is stumbling around like a coke-snorting heiress who's shoved her inheritance up her nose and is begging to still be let past the velvet rope into the club she helped build. She'll be blowing Glenn Beck for appearances any day now.

On Sarah Palin:

Yesterday, in a bookstore here in a very red town in the middle of Tennessee, the Rude Pundit stood aghast by a table stacked with Palin's book. It reads like a passive-aggressive Rick Warren tome, where the message is that you can self-actualize through Jesus if all those fuckers holding you back get out of the way. Two or three people grabbed copies and headed towards the cash register. People are lined up for hours to meet her in Michigan today. In the end, the facts of the the book don't matter. All that matters is that idiot America has its queen.

Sigh . . . back to my bat cave.

Stewart vs. Dobbs

I've really, really, really been trying to avoid watching cable tv (news and political shows) and really, really, really trying to stay away from politics on the internet, but as fickle fate would have it, I was watching one of my favorite Comedy Central shows, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, and saw an interview Stewart had with Lou Dobbs last night. And BAM! there it was.

In this brief 4 minute segment of that interview both Dobbs and Stewart summed up the right and left mind-sets, as it relates to the ideological and psychological condition of the American people today, and it was nothing short of a mini-revelation of sorts for me.

I'm sure it will come as no surprise that I ended up agreeing with what Jon Stewart had to say regarding the strength of America's representative Democracy as it stands presently, but in order to truly understand why I side with him, you really have to watch the clip. Dobbs made some decent points as well and Stewart did acknowledge them. Ultimately though, Stewart's final summary simply torpedoed Dobb's blanket pronouncement that America is a "fragile" country and that America can't handle a little dose of liberal leadership and legislative brinkmanship. Stewart made his case bluntly and coherently and it was a fitting exclamation point on a very entertaining and interesting interview.

The clip below is part 3 of a 3 part interview. You can catch the other 15 minutes of part 1 and part 2 on Comedy Central's website if you want to watch the whole thing from beginning to end.

And now -- back to my insanity sabbatical.

Time Out!

I need a little break from this stuff. There's times when the frustration, anger and feeling of powerlessness just overwhelms one's sentient equilibrium. I need to avoid my keyboard (and cable t.v.) for a couple of weeks maybe and then I'll be ok. Consider it a mind and soul rejuvenating process.

Might extend till after Turkey Day ... see how I feel in about a week.
