Sarah Palin, meet Jean Poutine!

UPDATE: Found a mostly-usable form of the video from 22 Minutes, not on their site but at YouTube.  I dunno, but did anyone hear what Palin actually said the same way I did?  In fairness, I didn’t hear “dismantle,” only that the government should share the market with the private sector, IOW a single (big) step backwards, not the giant leap.  No difference though.  “Commonsense conservatism”?  Sweetheart, it left the U.S. during/after the Revolution, and remained among Canada’s Red Tories until they lost their party in the Harper/Reform takeover a couple years ago.  And Sarah and Steve ain’t it!

The other thing I noticed is that, while the lovable “Marg Delahunty” (OK, I really can’t take the voice, but admire her “all lies” review of the book!!) was woman-handled out of the library, her camera crew was allowed to stay.  PURE PHOTO-OP!  No questions, just pictures.  I hope Muscle-Melon wasn’t on the public payroll facilitating that ‘un-campaign’ appearance for Palin.

ORIGINAL: That’s right, the Canadians who ‘punked’ W. got last week what may be the only policy remarks Alaska’s disgraced, resigned, unqualified, eye-candy governor will allow herself to be drawn on involuntarily, unscripted, during her eternal, fluff book tour/photo-op … and her own country is not the subject (nor is Russia!): ‘Yup, yup,’ like most self-important Republican politicos, she’s now become an expert on Canada’s model single-payer healthcare system — and all she cares about is corporate profiteering instead, and RATIONING on the basis of wealth, Whiteness, suburban residence, non-Indigenous status, etc.

If that’s “going rogue,” then John McCain’s a maverick!  The free ride she’s been getting from the MSM ever since her (losing) nomination is a danger to America and the world, because the hard right wing will back her as their savior just to feel they get back in power, even if she doesn’t know what to do with it in any way that will benefit, apparently, anyone other than CEOs and wealthy stockholders … short-term, anyway….  TALK ABOUT “DEATH PANELS”!!!  ‘Whose plug would Jesus pull?’

Weekend Update: Obama-and-kids joke

President Obama gave a controversial speech to some children this week.

The day before that, he visited a high school in Virginia!

(NB: This has nothing to do with the Saturday Night Live sketch called “Weekend Update.”)

Why do ‘conservatives’ hate Kumbaya?

I’m just sayin’!

Sounds like somebody had his bed short-sheeted or something!

If memory serves, it’s even Christian!

“Paging Mr. Taj Mahal”

In the ’90s once I was connecting through Denver’s then-Stapleton International Airport. During both ends of the round trip I spent quite a while cooling my heels there, so long in fact that for years afterward I could recite their First Amendment p.a. message from memory!

What I still remember though was at one point somebody used the automated p.a. paging system many, many times to page “Mr. Taj Mahal” — pronouncing Mahal “MAY-hall” (like racer Bobby Rahal*).  With the mispronunciation(?) it took a few times to seep into my conscious brain and make me realize, OH! That’s a prank!  Ha ha, very funny, right up there with “Amanda Hugginkiss” and all those other Bart Simpson pranks.  As a HUGE fan of The Blues Brothers, and a very minor fan of blues in general, I should’ve remembered maybe it wasn’t a prank after all!

Congrats, sir, and Many Years.

(*–Hey, Rahal’s Lebanese-American.  Is he Orthodox?!!)

Discover “The Highlanderz”

They’re a paid bit(?) on The CBS Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, pushing “the new Ford Flex,” a supposed Scottish hip-hop group — the Highlanderz, not the Flex — featuring Craig’s “cousins Angus [himself] and Philip Ferguson,” and a cute Black woman who sometimes speaks Scottish-English and sometimes American — “Aye!”  It’s inspired lunacy.  Tonight (Thursday / early AM Friday) they aired a whole music video — adding a couple backup dancers — based on the “We Are the Highlanderz” ditty which is all you can hear on the website for the moment.

It’s over, Hornymanatee.com….

Bubbles, marry me!!!  (Love the hat!)  “We are the Highlanderz, mighty and strong, We’re packing so much heat that our kilts are extra long!”

New Exodus to Canada?! (satire)

A droll piece purporting to be from a Manitoba newspaperPLEASE!!!  VOTE FIRST, THEN  SPLIT!!!  I know it’ll be a month colder up there, but we can’t give up YET, and snatch defeat from the jaws of victory!!!  Besides, I’m disabled, I’d never make it, even if I was an English major!!! 😉

Then again, if Palin’s gonna get away with hinting about Rep. “Uncle” Barney Frank as a pedophile*….  Race-baiting, pedo-baiting, Red Scare / McCarthyism (I don’t mean Jenny!), bigotry, woeful judgment, a hot temper and violence, questionable health, corporatocracy, potential PTSD, faked assaults — If we let them steal this one, it might be hard to get it back from them.  So much for your vaunted rights and freedoms, “inventory and investments”**….  😦

(*–Honestly, that’s right up there with Dick Armey’s “Barney Fag” — as if a guy named Dick Armey has any right to talk!)

(**–Yeah, that’s Joe the Plumber, “inventory and investments”!  TOTALLY OUT OF TOUCH AND OUT OF CONTROL!)

Sorry I missed SNL!

Great open with help from “Tina Fey glasses“!!! “Sexy librarian thing”!!!!

(How come Palin has a Chicago-Milwaukee accent, anyway?!)
