Through the Looking Glass

Harry Shearer calls it the Full Ginsberg — an homage to Monica Lewinsky’s lawyer, who once made the rounds of all five Sunday talk shows in a single day. And tomorrow, Barack Obama will be matching that feat.

Almost. One show got left out. Guess which?

“Even though we try to be fair to the President, he doesn’t like us very much,” says Known Socialist Bill O’Reilly. “I think that Fox News Sunday is a truly fair and balanced show,” agrees Chris Wallace. The White House, he adds, is “the biggest bunch of crybabies I have dealt with in my thirty years in Washington.”

But the best is near the end:

“When you have David Axelrod go on Face the Nation last Sunday and denigrate the million — er, I dunno, a hundred thousand — thousands and tens of thousands of people who came here into the streets of Washington to protest…”

Seventy thousand, Chris. Tops. But you’re forgiven — we only expect journalists to get their facts straight.


Obama should have gone on Fox and kicked Wallace’s kid to death, told him to go home and suck his mother’s tit and held up the bloody fucking shoe for the camera.

@al2o3cr: Awesome. My only question? Whether they left a 5% or 10% tip.

Simple – no one who watches him on Fox will vote for or support him, and a lot of people who see him on Telemundo will. Wallace and O’Reilly are clueless douchebags.

Funny, the only crying I’m seeing is Faux after getting slapped in their proverbial (tiny) sack.

@blogenfreude: GOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!! El Unicornio en la casa!!!

@SanFranLefty: Im stoked because three of the 27 over the air digital channels Im picking up in the new digs are Univision affiliates. Sabado Gigante!!

American family wins “Suckers of the Year” award:

Short version: family runs up $100k in credit card debt, mostly on medical expenses. Works like complete maniacs for 5 years straight to get clear, and the credit counseling association gives them a “Graduate Client of the Year” award.

I still can’t believe that the credit counseling people are allowed to advertise that they “help consumers” – the only ones being helped are the banksters, who would otherwise lose big on lending to deadbeats.

@al2o3cr: Sounds like the “Consorting Laws” that used to be used in New South Wales.

The laws were repealed because (and here’s a surprise) the police abused them to harass people.

@CheapBoy: In America, the police merely keep the peace. Unless they harass wingnuts, in which case they’re jackbooted Nazi thugs.

I don’t know. there are stories that give me hope. (Uh, Rapid Ligthenig Creek Road is sort of like Steve Earle’s Copperhead Road)):

@Jesuswalksinidaho: Wow, a judge who followed the law. That is newsworthy.

@SanFranLefty: Sabes que Don Francisco es judeo?

@Dodgerblue: Sabes que Don Francisco es judeo? Among other interesting facts.

@Dodgerblue: The Jews, they’re everywhere, even on SAAAAAAAAAABADO GIIIIIII-GANNTE!

@SanFranLefty: Remember that joke in the movie “Airplane” — where the passenger asks for some light reading and the flight attendant hands him a book on Jewish sports heroes.

@Dodgerblue: Sorry, you lost me, but I didn’t complete my thought either*. I saw an interview and retrospective of don Fernando a few years back; he speaks five or so languages, and is really quite the character.

*I blame it on this raging sinus headache, aggravated first by the hours I spent look at all the (expensive) health plan options I’m forced to choose from, and finally by the suckety suck suck of Da Bears eking out a win over my Pittsburgh footballers.
