Quién es Más Macho?


Oh, it’s on:

In a world exclusive, Oprah Winfrey will interview former Alaska governor Sarah Palin for an episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show to air Monday, November 16, 2009. Winfrey and Palin will meet for the very first time on the episode, which will mark Palin’s first interview to discuss her upcoming book, Going Rogue: An American Life and her first-ever appearance on the Oprah show.

Will Oprah break Talibunny into a million little pieces for all the inevitable lies in her memoir? Or will Talibunny trash Oprah for palling around with Obama? Who cries first?

Oprah Winfrey Talks to Sarah Palin on The Oprah Winfrey Show [Oprah]

No good will come of this, I tell you. None.

What I wish would happen is that Oprah would sit down on the couch across from her and just laugh for the full 40 minutes. I mean, talk about throwing someone’s weakness into sharp relief. Oprah makes Sarah Palin look like…well, just what she is: A well-dressed, snowbilly grifter.

great pic.

but this one might be closer to the event.

@JNOV: You’re absolutely right — reducing a dispute between two such respected women in American culture and politics to a cat fight is sexist. We would never depict a power-play between two gentlemen as dick-swinging.

Next time I’ll go with mud-wrestling.

@JNOV: Yes, we’re all about page hits, links and mentions. If not for the piles of filthy lucre pouring in from Google and Amazon, I doubt I would even go to the trouble.

@JNOV: I would also point out that the photo could depict our conversation.

@JNOV: The JNOV is a repudiation of jury verdict which is somewot . . . godlike, innit? *grins*

@redmanlaw: Sorry you got caught in the crossfire.

@JNOV: Whaaaaa?

My target pix are meant to be a throw back in the teabagger faces.

Political art. We take their iconography and run with it.

@JNOV: Four for four — you’re on a roll.

@JNOV:” . . . shooting at targets of men clad in keffiyehs . . . ”

“If you don’t know me by now, you will never never never know me. Ooooh Ooooh Ooo-ooh.” I’m thinking about sending a letter to Handguns magazine regarding their column this month on the need for US Americans to arm up to fight the Muslins and pointing out that we need to be mindful of the threat posed by Christian domestic terrraists. Stinquers are requested to help out with some research on that.

Something I sent to thefirearmsblog.com:

And when I saw this post all I thought was “OMG kitteh cuteness my head explodes!”

I for one have zero desire to see prick pics start showing up with the posts, either being measured or swung.

@SanFranLefty: Me too! Kitteh pics always put me in a good mood. Maybe we need some Maru?

@flippin eck: Really. However, I do kinda miss baked pics of Israeli soldiers. And for illustrating male arrogance, how could you go wrong with a shot of Don Draper (Mad Men), preferably shirtless? Oh well, that’s why I have Project Rungay.

@nojo: You’re absolutely right.

@All I’ve insulted: I’m sorry I’ve behaved badly. Carry on.

@All I’ve made uncomfortable: I’m sorry I’ve behaved badly.

@flippin eck:

Good thing you’re only speaking for yourself. Peen pics, please!

I’ll settle for kittehs, tho.


I thought the point of all this was being insulting, making people uncomfortable, exchanging ideas thereby, then kissing and making up at the end of it all. That’s what I come here for.

No apology needed, IMHO.

ADD: look at the shitty way I treat Benedick! And yet I feel no compulsion to apologize to him whatsoever. None.

@JNOV: I had a piece on suicide bombing, but I didn’t think it was funny enough.

@Tommmcatt is hunkered down in the trenches: You could go Claudine Longet Invitational on it, but it might be taken the wrong way.


The fact that you remember that stuff boggles the mind. We must sit down for trivial pursuit, sometime.

i want to play trivial pursuit with noj and tommie so bad!
i have trophies.
oh noj, got a jolt from the claudine remark. why and how did we come to know so much useless shit?

@baked: I would actually suck at Trivial Pursuit, unless the category was Seventies Comedy References. I grew up with more comedy albums than music.

As far as useless — never mind what I post here, you should see my emails…

dont crush that dwarf hand me the pliers because we are all bozos on THIS bus.

Hey! I’m banned from playing in family Trivial Pursuit games because I win too much.

I spent more acid time with Firesign Theater than I care to think about.
they have shaped my consciousness in major ways. which is probably obvious.

@Capt Howdy: Don’t get me started with my Rocky Rococo impression.

@Tommmcatt is hunkered down in the trenches: Hey! I have feelings. Brits are humans too. Well, the English not so much but the rest of us!!! Of course the Irish are nuts but us Welsh and Scots. We are caring people. Apart from the Welsh. Up to a point.

Damn! I think I’m out of vodka. I better get my ass up to Woodstock pronto.

@Benedick: I don’t have the quote down, but in the marathon Python documentary (tonight at 9 on IFC!), John Cleese remarks of Terry Jones that he didn’t understand the Welsh were put on this Earth to serve the English.

@Tommmcatt is hunkered down in the trenches: I think flippin eck is speaking for more than just herself. I’m happy enough with the complete dearth of cock-comparison pictures, thanks.

@JNOV: Sorry you feel that way, but I can’t think of any posts at Stinque that have been consciously sexist without also being completely tongue-in-cheek. If something like this is too much for you, then yes, you probably are better off dropping out.

Combined with the headline (“macho” and all), I didn’t even consider the word “catfight” and its negative/sexist connotations with the story at all until you raised the point.

@baked: @ManchuCandidate:

They force me to play against everyone in our family. Literally me against a team of about 6.

We really must have a tourney.

I sort of missed the whole cat fight thing. need to scroll up more often.
the pic I linked to was from riverdaughter.

we should have a stinquie tournie.
no one I know will play that game with me.


oh dream of dreams, to have a 7o’s comedy version!

came in second in my last tourney because i said woods and not nicklaus.
i suck at Sport. but a stinque dream team, all of us entered as a team playing our strengths! we’re such a bunch of smarty pants! get me chuck barris on the phone. benedick…wait up!

@Tommmcatt is hunkered down in the trenches: Prommie’s suggestion of renting a house somewhere + Trivial Pursuit = gen[i]us.


since YOU mentioned “useless” and “your emails”,

WTF is it with gravatar? yes folks, our hamster king cannot get my ass off that camel. i told you they hate me, amirite?

@baked: When we last left our saga, I triggered gravatar to send you a new password to your yahoo address. Did it arrive? Are you using a different address now? Bored hamsters at nojo@stinque need to know.

@mellbell: The corner drinking establishment does a Pub Quiz on Mondays. Should a team of Stinquers find themselves in Sandy Eggo, I’ll know what to do.

@nojo: Road trip to Sandy Eggo. Like Tommy, when I can find people willing to play Trivial Pursuit against me, they make me play alone.

Literature sometimes kicks my ass. I dominate in History.

@nojo: @SanFranLefty:

TOTALLY…San Diego or BUST!

I rule the Lit. category. My Achilles heel? Sport, nach.

@Tommmcatt is hunkered down in the trenches: For me it’s, oddly enough, the Leisure part of Sports & Leisure that’s tricky. I tend to do well at Science & Nature, Arts & Literature, and Entertainment, with History and Geography more so-so.

@mellbell: I call Show Tunes!!!! Capt H can do Hollywood.

@Tommmcatt is hunkered down in the trenches:
I’m pretty good at everything but Arts & Lit.

My answer to almost every question: Jane Austen.

@Capt Howdy: I’ve promising myself for ages to install a Rimshot Button.

@Benedick: Me too. It’s all family members vs. me.

am I the only one that thinks this is an oddly serendipitous confluence of know-it-all’s?

I’m flashing on the Usual Suspects.

@Capt Howdy: I don’t count myself among the Anointed, but the core crew here were the best commenters on Wonkette before we all left in a huff over Megan Carpentier’s firing. (My latter prominence is an accident of history.) The real serendipity is that we ended up with all the wheat and lost the chaff.

@SanFranLefty: Ditto but then again, I read Consumerist religiously and they’re contractually obligated to show cats in at least 40% of their posts.

Also, the “mas macho” line might have thrown me off.

Anyhoo, JNOV, it’s good to see you lookin’ all feisty and such.

@flippin eck: Amen.

@ManchuCandidate: My HS algebra class used to divide into teams and play one another. After I played the rest of the class (and teacher) solo and won, I was banned.

@nojo: Yeah but c’mon, I did give him quite the set-up. I’m well known as a straight-man.

@Capt Howdy: It’s an oddly comforting place here with a wide variety of interests and personalities. You seem to fit right in.


I agree. You all have a calming influence on me. A more genial group of know-it-alls you will never find.

Im a sucker for a set up.
and thank you.
that would explain both the awsumness and why wonkette now sucks.

of COURSE they never sent the new password you ‘allegedly’ triggered!
boring emails await you with lots of cursing…..

MOVIES…everyone stand back.
benedick…i’m your b’way musical back up.
LIT? pfft. there’s SOMEthing i can beat lefty at??? cyn, tommie you’re with me on this category.

and chuck insists that nojo, capt. and i recite firesign verbatim during commercial breaks.

@baked: I had a friend in college who could recite whole sides of Firesign. It loses its amusement the twentieth time or so.

@baked: There but for the grace of the comedy gods go I.

yes, we give thanks.
now to write you boring techy email…..

@Benedick: We couldn’t quote Python and SNL all the time.

So, how did the Oprah/Palin thing go?
