to have spent so much on her wardrobe.

Ok, I’ll admit it.

She really is a high-fashion Alaskan and does look good for a woman in her 40s. But just like John McCain being hot once upon a time and not being able to lift his arms due to years of torture…it doesn’t mean she’d make a good VP or Pres. However, I like her tied jackets and how she “breaks up the suit” (something I’m really scared to try).

A MySpace Bulletin from Dr. Steve Brule

Of course Dr. Steve Brule is in my top 8 friends… read up on his big news:subject: I’M GETTING MARRIED!

“And mummy​ said it’d never​ be so.

So long,​ “​Livin​g on Your Lones​ome.​”

I’d like to annou​nce that I asked​ one Miss Sarah​ Palin​ to marry​ me at a recen​t McCai​n-​Palin​ campa​ign stop here in Penty​ and she said HELL YEAH.​ No, make that SHIT YEAH.​ 

We took the Justy​ to the arcad​e and I showe​d her the diffe​rence​ betwe​en “​Morta​l Komba​t”​ and we playe​d air hocke​y.​ Thing​s got a littl​e frisk​y.​ I am start​ing to wonde​r what she’​s gonna​ say when she finds​ out I’m a virgi​n.​

Somet​imes,​ when it’s just me and her, she calls​ me “​First​ Dude”​ and I feel like so AWESO​ME.​ Somet​imes we get all lost in our words​ and forge​t what we’​re sayin​g.​ And somet​imes we just make stuff​ up so we can look all smart​ and words​ and fun and stuff​.​ 

And she total​ly gets the thing​ about​ eatin​g ants cuz they’​re made outta​ prote​in.​”

Now go watch Brule’s Rules cause it’s my favorite!

30 Rock is more liberal than 24

I like what Gawker says about The Hills being conservative – “Heidi Montag endorses McCain, he calls her “a very talented actress”, John Adams twirls in his grave. Plus it’s all about remorseless spending and there are no gays on the show and, actually, thousands of gays in LA, especially working in fashion for God’s sake.”

No wonder I hate that show.

That one

In case you missed it, McCain referred to Obama as “that one” in last night’s debate.  Here are some possible reasons why he did so, via Radar:

• He forgot Obama’s name.
• He didn’t want to say Obama’s name out of fear that he might make the “Osama” slip-up.
• He did want to say Obama’s name so that he could explicitly make the “Osama” slip-up, but forgot Obama’s name.
• He didn’t want to say Obama’s name because he has no respect for Obama and doesn’t believe they belong on the same stage.
• He didn’t want to say Obama’s name because he’s infuriated with Obama for not bending over and taking it like previous Democratic nominees.
• He was so busy channeling Ross Perot that he decided he might as well do an homage to the diminutive Texan’s “you people” moment.
• “That one” focus tested better than “the colored boy over there.”
• Old people have a harder time identifying discrete shapes and forms; McCain wanted to make clear that he was talking about Obama and not the bunting in the background.
• McCain has come to realize that his incredibly dishonest campaign, with its desperate use of fearmongering and racial animus, will go down in history as one of the ugliest attempts to win the presidency at the expense of honesty, comity, and basic human decency, and, worst of all, it won’t even be successful. This man, who spent five years under the most brutal conditions imaginable, has forever tarnished his legacy and when people one hundred years from now look back at the election of 2008 all they’ll remember him for is failed gimmicks, coded bigotry, and the disturbing way in which he doddered about the stage. His guilt—not only at destroying his own reputation, but at the low and poisonous way in which he’s tried to destroy Obama’s—is so overwhelming that McCain can barely shake Obama’s hand, meet his eye, or say his name.
• They all look alike.

We’ll all go to hell

This video is prettttty harsh on Palin.. but her “place in hell” quote is ridiculous.  Remember when Hil was running?  I bet Palin wasn’t so supportive.  Also, fuck you Sarah Palin.   Sorry, I’m sick, and that is my best summary.

Thanks Victoria for the clip.

An infuriating video

New buzzword: Gotcha journalism.

From Wonkette: Because she’s masochistic, Sarah Palin went back for more inquisition with her MORTAL FOIL, the ancient fire dragon Katie Couric. Of course this time she brought her actual father, John McCain, to come and sit in and change the subject when Katie Couric starts getting mean. Palin sounds, uh, better(?), and is able to not completely mangle her 2002-era platitudinous bullcrap about “the terrorists.” On the other hand, Palin comes off as extremely pathetic because JOHN MCCAIN HAS TO DEFEND HER CONSTANTLY FROM KATIE COURIC.

Pretty Jewelry: Leslie Shershow

I just got back from a short visit to Boston. Whenever I stay, I usually crash at Emily’s place and get to hang with her cool posse.  We often hang out on her roof, which requires climbing though her roommates Leslie and Stacy’s jewelery workshop. I always love looking at their little creations and the stuff in production. So check out Leslie’s jewelry because it’s blowing up all over boutiques out here. I especially like the Alaska series (silver pipelines and bear rug cuffs!) and the name of the line is just as cute…Mouse House.

Amy Poehler: Leaving ‘Saturday Night Live’ will be ‘hard’

Tuesday, September 16th 2008, 2:16 PM

Amy Poehler is leaving “Saturday Night Live” after this season in order to focus on family.

The comedienne/actress, who expecting her first child with “Arrested Development” star Will Arnett, talked about parting with the show during an interview with Men’s Vogue.

“It’s gonna be really hard – Boyz II Men hard – to say goodbye to yesterday,” Poehler jokingly said of her nearly seven-year stint on the show.

“‘SNL’ was dangerous, late-night, last-minute and star-studded, but like any good drug, you need to know when to put it down.”

According to an SNL rep, the actress is staying with the show until her baby is born.

Though the mom-to-be makes no guarantee for a return to late-night TV, the star is reportedly working on her own show with “The Office” producers and writers at NBC.

Just last weekend, Poehler made headlines again for her spot-on portrayal of Senator Hillary Clinton in SNL’s season premiere.

I guess I have to cite The NY Daily News for the story, but jesus, Daily News, lay off the linking to your goddamn photos. Just report the fucking story.

Sarah Palin, will you please define the Bush Doctrine?

Skip to 7:00, “Do you agree with the Bush Doctrine.”

I thought this was a really good point, brought up by writers for Jezebel.

MOE: You know what is interesting, reading this interview? I feel like I sometimes err on the side of chalking up most Republican gaffes and idiocy re foreign policy to a kind of purposeful vagueness that buys them the license to invade whatever they want. But it should not be so hard to brief Sarah Palin. How could she come off so blindsided? How difficult is it, really, to grasp basic foreign policy? Why are so few politicians capable of giving a more accurate assessment in a television interview than i could? And I think to be honest, maybe it is tough for Sarah Palin to grasp. Maybe she just doesn’t absorb information about Sunnis and Shiites and Iran and Pakistan the way, you know, Barack Obama would. It isn’t that hard! And yet, it’s not like this shit gets taught in our schools, and that probably includes the communications curriculum at all six of Sarah Palin’s colleges.

MEGAN: My concern, though, is that it makes her just enough of a “regular” American that it’ll make regular Americans want to have a beer with her and mock us elitist Americans’ obsession with little things like the Bush doctrine and how starting an actual war with Russia might be bad. And that’s sort of what got George Bush elected. Twice.

Yeah, what Emily said.

Em brought up a good point in her mcdonald’s post. Why is it that all of a sudden jazz, a good education, community organizing and cosmopolitanism are considered bad, boo-worthy things? Roger Ebert (yeah, I didn’t know he wrote op-ed seither) thinks its ridiculous too, especially because we’re talking about the qualities we want to see from a future world leader here.

Intellectuals are the WORST..

so lets drink our coffee at McDonalds!  


McD’s is launching a new anti-Starbucks ad campaign.. it goes something like this: “In the 30-second “Intellectuals” spot, a woman sitting in a leather chair, sipping coffee in front of a fireplace with piano music playing in the background, tells her friend about McDonald’s new lattes, and says, “Now we don’t have to listen to jazz all day long.” The commercial ends with a voice-over saying, ‘Try McDonald’s McCafe coffees. All the coffee. Hold the attitude.'”

I’m not the biggest fan of Starbucks (except for one special Starbucks), but I have to say McDonalds is being a total dick here.. and sounds a lot like the GOP right now, to be honest. 

Remember when Rudy Giuliani, suggested that the reason Obama was anti-Palin was that Wasilla, AK wasn’t “cosmopolitan” enough for him?  I forget.. Giuliani was the mayor of which American city?  Certainly not one known for CULTURE, right? 

Just wondering when being intellectual became synonymous with being a douchebag.  Jazz is superlame, let’s get happy meals.

Putting lipstick on a pig.. literally

Palin rejected by Heart

My favorite woman fronted 70s classic rock band, Heart (no joke), isn’t down with Sarah Palin using their song Barracuda as her theme song. To be honest, neither am I. From Yahoo news.

Despite the Wilson sisters’ objections, one of the song’s co-writers said he was “thrilled” that the song was used.

In an e-mail to Reuters, the band’s former guitarist, Roger Fisher, said it was a win-win situation. Heart gets publicity and royalties, while the Republicans benefit from “the ingenious placement of a kick-ass song,” Fisher said.

But in a subsequent email, Fisher said he strongly endorsed the Democratic ticket, and would donate a portion of royalties he receives from the Republicans’ airing of “Barracuda” to the campaign of Sen. Barack Obama.

“With my contribution to Obama’s campaign, the Republicans are now supporting Obama,” he said.

Speaking of pigs … chill the F out McCain

Apparently any mention of lip stick is now an attack on Palin and women.  Note that Huckabee took Obama’s side. Also note that McCain himself used the phrase to refer to Hillary’s health care plan.

WTF RNC? part2

Good question Steph, why did they put a random mansion behind mccain during his speech? (jfyi- when i watched it on tv, it was just a blue screen…) I think a better question is though, why did they make the stage look like a penis?

From Wonkette…

That’s former Senator Bill Frist you see speaking on tonight’s redesigned RNC stage, with a lovely projection of the African plains at dusk as his backdrop. You know what else is a projection? The massive black cock on which he’s standing.

Talk about a low blow..

This can’t be real, can it??

here’s the about us section:

“Not to cut the story to short or anything but a bunch of us got bitter, disenchanted and crabs, so we wanted to put our college educations in biology to good use. We brought on an MBA guy (who says we can’t use his name, and he’s smart for it I’m sure) and today we’re right here. We may be the scum of the earth, but we’re making an honest living doing the very thing you wish you could do, which is give crabs to your ex.”

FYI – for $298 the Gold Package can be yours.. and those are the shampoo-resistant crabs. Zing!

hahaha.  It’s fake it’s fake.  that kind of got me.

America’s Next Top Dunk

Oh Tyra. You wooed us to stay up late tonight watching the season premiere of ANTM Cycle 410934873596 (that’s the exact number of “cycles” they’ve done). You won tonight, I’ll give you that. But whenever I look at you and your head full of thoughts of world domination and awareness-spreading intentions (see: this cycle’s contestant Isis), all I can think of is that time when Spencer and Heidi came to your show and said something so racist that the whole universe should had been shocked but you were too stupid to notice.

(I can’t find the clip anywhere else online except from The Soup, which is great, I effing love The Soup, but just skip to about 6:28 in…)

I’m sorry. That’s just ridic-ba-dunk-a-dunk-ulous.

I don’t mean to be rude, but these liberels are D-U-M-B.  On the site dailykos, there is some yahoo claiming that I am wrong about when the pledge of allegience was written.  I pointed out in 2006 that the pledge was written by our founding fathers in the 18th century.  Well, guess when it was written you dumba**es- in 1892.

Word of advice liberels- GET A BRAIN.

Sarah Palin can haz cheezburger?

I’ve been spending some time looking into the spunky Sarah P. and apparently many an internet meme has sprung up around her already. I’m trying my best not to rant about her, so I’m just going to include the ridiculous videos, pictures and memes I’ve found so far.  (i do believe though that McCain is going to ruin her life…)

Little known facts about Sarah Palin…

She named her children Bristol,  Piper, Track, Willow, and Trig.

btw- Wonkette is currently dedicated to covering Sarah P. so you should check them out too for continuous updates

oh yeah- and her 17 year old daughter is preggo (hence the juno pic)- congrats Bristol!
