Excerpt: George W. Bush rescued the economy from collapse,
according to Karen Hughes.
She attacked Obama on NBC Sunday, defending the
record of her former Fuhrer boss on the economy.
Speaking about Obama's successes, journalist (ha
ha) Mark Halperin praised Obama's
handling of the economy.
"He's done, I think, an extraordinary job running
the government under difficult circumstances. He managed the
economic crisis, kept the world from going into
depression," said Halperin.
But Hughes quickly took objection to Halperin's
assessment. "I have to disagree with you, Mark, about rescuing
the economy," she said. "I think that happened
before President Bush left office when they took the action that they
did on TARP and the banks have now repaid much
of that money but that's what stabilized the economy and
prevented the collapse of the financial system."
That crazy ho knew David Gregory and Meet the Whore was the best
place to spew that crap.
Will NBC be as radically right-wing under Comcast?

We've seen another president who was selected
instead of elected in an orgiastic festival of Florida
and federal fraud. We saw an administration use
the darkest day in our history as an excuse to scare us,
spy on us, steal from us and start false wars
in our name. We've seen a vice president go on national
television and advocate the benefits and blessings
of torture. We came within an eyelash of seeing the
first woman president elected in this still-misogynist
nation, and did see the first African-American
president elected in this still-racist nation.
Those are just the big-ticket items. It is almost
impossible to quantify the political mayhem that has
broken loose during the last several years, and
after all of it, you start to think that maybe you've seen it all.
How much more deranged can it really get?...
The open US Senate seat for Massachusetts, held

If Ted's seat goes Nazi right, will Obama finally get the message?
Will that get him to come to work?

"Actually, 'never let a crisis go to waste'
should be the Republican motto these days. They have been relentless in politicizing
every single issue which has made the news. And if there is no crisis, they invent
one. Republicans have shifted so far to the right they now exist in a world where paranoia
is the norm and where demons and bogeymen inhabit every nook and cranny of their
demented minds. Pathetic does not begin to describe what the GOP has become." -- Mario Piperni, Link

"We see Obama react so rapidly on Haiti and
yet he couldnít react rapidly on Afghanistan. He couldnít react rapidly on Ft. Hood.
He couldnít react rapidly on our own airplanes with an underwear bomber...it doesnít make
sense...Three different events and Haiti is the only one." - Glenn Beck, Link
Hey, shit for brains, let me explain the difference to you.
Afghanistan is an ongoing war - what did you want Obama to say
Ft Hood was a mass shooting - what did you want Obama to say
The underwear bomber is in jail - what do you want Obama to say
But in Haiti, every minute counts.
You have 2M people with no water, no food, no homes and no hospitals.
That calls for immediate action that will save lives.
I know you're a walking handjob whose goal is to anger the stupid,
but even you should understand why Haiti needed immediately,
not in a few weeks.
BTW, you mentioned four events, not three.
Are you so stupid you can't count to four?
Excerpt: Only after Fox News announced that it had hired
Sarah Palin as an "news analyst" did I realize that I've been
subconsciously calling her Sarah Fox, Fox Palin,
or Sarah Palin-Fox for a while now. She seems to be both
the face that Fox wants to project and the audience
it wants to capture: Palin represents the natural next stage
in Fox's evolution from talking heads who pretend
to know things that aren't true to those who sincerely
believe things that aren't true.
You could even reverse the order of that old illustration
of evolution, that row of amphibian, monkey, and
human figures walking increasingly upright out
of the water, to show Fox's development, starting with Shepard Smith,
who really is some kind of journalist, to Bill
O'Reilly, then gently moving down through Sean Hannity to Steve Doocy
to Glenn Beck (an amphibian if ever there was
one), and ending in Palin, who's all fish.
That strikes me as a smooth progression, or at
least it did until I watched her debut last night on O'Reilly.
Her halting and deferential appearance--she even
called Bill "the big man on campus"--may actually undercut
her usefulness as a propaganda tool. She seemed
nervous with Papa Bear, who was rather snappish.
Opening with a video mash-up of TV personalities
calling her an "ignorant rightwinger" who "doesn't know anything"
--meant to outrage her fans, but demeaning nonetheless--O'Reilly
then weighed in with direct and often rapid-fire
questions about 'the perception...that you're
not that smart.'

Excerpt: Rotund, bald and ferocious, the Fox television
boss Roger Ailes is said to have two speeds Ė attack and destroy.
Every night under his watch, millions of Americans
are enthused, engrossed or appalled by a lively diet of angry
rightwing rhetoric served up on Fox's rolling
news channel. But the heady mix of hectoring, finger-pointing and
liberal-bashing may be proving too spicy even
for the strong stomachs of his employers, the Murdoch clan.
Last week, Murdoch's son-in-law, Matthew Freud,
delivered an astonishingly public broadside against Fox News.
Freud, a media-savvy London public relations
supremo married to Murdoch's daughter, Elisabeth, told the New York

That's just a sample of the myriad emotions that

afternoon by the Minnesota Vikings.
Dallas was yearning to make it to the conference
title game for the first time since 1965.
Cowboys coach Wade Phillips later said the abrupt
end to the season felt like being in
an elevator that reaches the top floor and then
suddenly plummets to the bottom.

Excerpt: Did the Minnesota Vikings run up the score on
the Dallas Cowboys in Sunday's ass-whooping?
Keith Brooking thinks so. A late Brett Favre
touchdown pass infuriated the crybaby whiner,
who charged over to the Vikings' sideline to
voice his displeasure.
If Brooking didn't want Minnesota to score then
maybe the Cowboys should have done something about it.
Just because the Cowboys quit doesn't mean the
Vikings needed to also.
Aw, poor baby!
