You gotta be kiddin' me!

Come on people! you can do better than this! She has many more problems with being VP material than a magazine cover that shows a few stray hairs! Hey Barbie! You and Ms.Tantaros look like you are doing an SNL skit here! Unbelievable!

I thought the Young Turks had a great response to the above Fox dilemma!

I need to get off this political stuff for a little! It makes my blood boil!
Anyway, I wish I knew Spanish better! I would have loved to hear what this poor guy was saying to the reporter under his breath!

Jerome Corsi deported from Kenya-the (real) true story!

It has been reported on the Fox website that author Jerome Corsi has been deported from Kenya. Kenya Reportedly Deports American Author of Anti-Obama Book. Actually, the reasons that the story insinuates are just not the case. (Whoa! Fox News' reporting isn't accurate?!)

Some are reporting that Corsi was thrown out due to his recently published book, "Obama Nation-Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality. Obama's father is a Kenyan and some feel that the anti-Obama book is inflammatory to Kenyans.

Well, I have the real story on this. It's not due to the book and its anti-Obama rhetoric. It's due to the gas. The gas you say? What gas?! This is part of the story I brought to you a couple of months ago These revelations are noxious!

Other sources are saying that Corsi's grammaticist, Ted (Corsi will not give his last name due to "security reasons") is still having a lot of problems with what Corsi described in his book as "human gas." It seems Mr. Corsi is also having problems with foul odors emanating from his person in addition to Ted.

Joseph Angwenyi, a Kenyan police officer, reported that both Corsi and Ted were causing a "ruckus" in a small restaurant. "Some of the restaurant's patrons kept smelling something most foul" Angwenyi said through an interpreter. "The people kept smelling this horrible smell. As some walked near the table where Corsi and Ted were seated, they noticed that was the smell's strongest point." "It was them." (meaning Corsi and Ted) "They were giving off a sulfur-like smell...it was overpowering!" So overpowering was the stench that Corsi and Ted were asked to leave the restaurant. Soon after, due to the continuing "odor issues" at their hotel, they were politely asked to leave the country.

In response to the question that Corsi and Ted were asked to leave due to the book, Angwenyi replied, "No! Absolutely not! Kenyans do not concern themselves with comic books, or the rantings of those who are obviously unstable." "What Kenyans are concerned with is having clean, fresh oxygen to breathe." "These two individuals were actually making Kenyan citizens sick with their foul odors." "Sulfur." "Mr. Corsi and the other person, were literally engulfing anyone within a 10-15 foot radius with sulfur-like gas smells." "Let me personally say that I have never smelled such a horrible, disgusting odor in my life!" "No bathroom-probably in the world-has ever experienced the putrid smell that those two unleashed!"

So, the moral of the story is, if you want the real story on some issue, whether that be the Presidential election, the economy, politics, or some right wing nut jobs causing a stink in Kenya, don't trust Fox News! Trust me!

Nothing much...

Hey folks. Been really busy with work lately, and haven't felt like posting much anyways. I have been watching more TV news shows lately-interested in how things are turning out.
I haven't even been visiting other blogs very much lately. I want to get back into it soon! I need to catch up though, at least on my dumb comments sometime soon! So blogmates-I will be seeing you soon!

I was wondering what Fox News was lying about earlier, so I turned the TV on and saw the typical barbie anchor giving a report about Sarah Palin's jabs at Obama's acquaintance with Bill Ayers at a rally. The other anchor then said something like "...in the interests of fairness, since we already spoke with Obama's campaign manager, we now have Tucker Bounds, John McCain's campaign manager."
Now, if Fox News was actually fair and balanced, like they claim to be, this wouldn't be the punchline it is. I mean, come on! This network has been hammering away at Obama for every little thing ever since he was jumped into the race. They have had guest after guest, and show after show try to smear and malign Obama's campaign. To say that they have even tried to give airtime to Obama in a positive manner is truly insulting. And Fox "News" is truly a joke. (I know, I know-that's not groundbreaking news) I actually managed to laugh a little at the inanity.

Also, I just need to say something. There is a lot of divisiveness in America right now. As a progressive/liberal person, I see a lot of that divisiveness coming from the right-the right in our country is on alert right now, trying to play catch up now that Obama's lead in the polls is growing. Looking at comments in the blogs-Liveleak, or Youtube, it is clear that some on the right are afraid of a black President, even one who is, in my opinion, not very liberal at all. I would characterize Obama's platform and beliefs as a moderate to even conservative Democrat. I am more like a Kucinich (or more!) Demo, but I do think Obama would a great President. He would take us light years away from the mess we are in now, that's for sure!
I know that there are some on the left who say dumb things that can rub people the wrong way, but I think the right in this country is reactionary-(I guess that's why they are called reactionaries). Everything is a harsh, negative , and sometimes outright threatening reaction to change, or new ideas.
I was watching Fox later in the day, and guess what? They have hired Mike Huckabee to host his own show! Only on Fox! Fair and Balanced-yes indeed. Mike Huckabee!
It even shows up (a little) in one of my son's kids videos. Just recently, he had a birthday, and received a Veggietales video. Veggietales is produced by a conservative christian company, but I had never heard of anything, or thought that the company would be brazen enough to fill these particular movies with rightie beliefs that showed that particular bias. I was wrong. I was watching one of the movies with my son the other day, and an old west character was narrating, talking about traveling in the West, and he says "Indians" and then quickly corrected himself and said "oh, excuse me!" "Native Americans!" Personally, I don't think my Indian friends or neighbors mind being called Indians. I use that term. It was the way the character in the movie-a old west Yosemite Sam-like character- said it that got my goat. It was said in a snide, condescending way. I know this may sound silly to some, but taken with all the other crap, it gets to me sometimes. All this rightie claptrap!

Tina Fey does it again:

Nicholas Gurewitch's Perry Bible Fellowship has always been a favorite of mine!

I have had Don Asmussen's Bad Reporter comic on here before also! It's great!

I hadn't had any of Derf's The City comics here before! I am sorry that I hadn't!
