Except for Mad Men, I don't even watch TV anymore. I don't need to because the news is so highly entertaining to me. Even thought the MSM is still doing it's best to make us believe what they write instead of what our brains and common sense tell us is true, there are some genuine nuggets that show up every day. So many in fact that it's hard to choose what to showcase here. I had to set aside Shelia Jackson Lee yakking it up on her cellphone while a cancer survivor was speaking to her at a Town Hall, the combative Barney Frank insulting his own constituents, and even the committed Christian president himself pulling out all the biblical references he had written down in the back of Rules for Radicals during a healthcare pitch with religious leaders.
We might have to revisit this category often because IT'S A GOLDMINE.
"Senator Edward M. Kennedy, in a poignant acknowledgment of his mortality at a critical time in the national health care debate, has privately asked the governor and legislative leaders to change the succession law to guarantee that Massachusetts will not lack a Senate vote when his seat becomes vacant." Boston Globe
I have a feeling that we're not hearing the whole story here. I would like the MSM to investigate if the envelope the letter was delivered in also held the keys to his sailboat and a receipt for a Portuguese Water Dog, delivery pending.
"Spy Agency Fiasco - an inexperienced CIA director, unfamiliar with how his vast, complicated agency works, unable to trust senior officials within his own agency, and desperate to keep his hands clean, screwed up.CIA Director Leon Panetta’s emergency testimony to Congress about an illegal assassination program has set off a crisis at the spy agency... Panetta has frantically tried to rectify his gaffe, but now faces increased Congressional oversight." Daily Beast
Yeah, not so much an asshole as a schlemieil. It's like having to put your wife's Uncle Leon in the a high-level managementspot just to shut her up, knowing full well he wasn't up to it and it's only a matter of time until he screws up. And by the way, that "increased Congressional oversight" is Nanny Pee up his butt forever.
"The Obama White House is abuzz with talk of witchcraft by first grandmother, 72-year-old Marian Robinson, who lives in the White House residence. A close friend of Michelle Obama says the president is furious at his mother-in-law after learning that she was practicing Santeria, an African spirit cult, in the White House." Wonkette
"Medical science cannot seem to stop the progression of multiple sclerosis, so I would not blame her if she did take up Santeria or any other kind of hocus-pocus." Foolocracy
Maybe this is why Barry doesn't need to go to church - he's got religion right there at home. I love this one for two reasons. First, because the defense of Mrs. Robinson perfectly captures the excuse-making for all things Obama, no matter what the story of the moment happens to be. Second, because the story itself is so totally believable. If you are thinking that it's just too far-fetched, how else can you explain Hillary's hairdo when she snapped that poor African student's head off?
