Winks on the House!

1/11/10: Never forget the day when everyone in the blogosphere wet their pants with anticipation.

Sarah Palin to Contribute to Fox News [NYT]

It was destiny. Only thing people should wonder is why it took so damn long.

does this mean she will have to learn how to pronounce Bidens (OBidens) name correctly?

if Liz Cheney can be on ABC . . . .

it will keep her off the streets. ifyouknowwhatImean.

Does special appearance mean they’ll broadcast Glenn Beck dry humping her leg?

@Capt Howdy: No. Her target audience is not interested in truth or accuracy — only in hearing what they want to hear.

that would be special

I think the whole thing is gods will. simply had to happen.

Look on the bright side: she won’t have to dumb herself down nearly as much as Gretchen Carlson. She gets her dumb honest!

@Capt Howdy: Oh, yeah, the automessianist angle is a hoot. I am ordained by god to become president and gatekeeper of apocalypse!

@homofascist: I’m looking forward to the first Gretchen-Palin interview: the one pretending to dumb down, the other pretending to smart up.

i am curious about how this will affect ratings. if they go through the roof, advertisers will throw giant amounts of money at her from their soul less hearts. and we will know, mathematically, how much more stupid is out there than we already know about.

Also looking forward to Chris Wallace crying over the last shred of dignity he has, then flushing it down the toilet before interviewing Palin.

pourmecoffee on Twitter, who’s a good source for running patter:

It seems like most of the doors that God is opening for Sarah Palin lead to rooms full of money.

They could just have Palin and Coulter make out on camera for a half hour or so every other week.

@baked: Bear in mind that half of Beck’s audience is tuning in for the trainwreck. Everybody wins!

As log as it doesn’t take away from her helping fuck things up for the Repugs in 2010, I say “Bring it on”. It will be like one continuous blooper reel, and it will help focus attention on the intellectual side of modern conservatism ( and lack thereof).

@Tommmcatt is hunkered down in the trenches:
actually I think she may do pretty well. I think it is the job she was born to do.

she has even done it before

@Capt Howdy: Ah. I’ve been on the verge of calling a search party. Or just making an obscure musical-comedy reference. That usually draws him in.

how long before there is a site dedicated to nude airport pics?

Body scanners can store, send images, group says

In the documents, obtained by the privacy group and provided to CNN, the TSA specifies that the body scanners it purchases must have the ability to store and send images when in “test mode.”

That requirement leaves open the possibility the machines — which can see beneath people’s clothing — can be abused by TSA insiders and hacked by outsiders,


We should just talk about the difference between the songs in the New York version of Company vs. those songs that used in the West End production. That kind of talk is Show Queen catnip.

@Tommmcatt is hunkered down in the trenches: Well, there you go — despite the caricature, my knowledge is actually rather thin on the ground. That, plus I’m not much of a Sondheim fan, which pretty much excludes me from the club.

@Tommmcatt is hunkered down in the trenches: I just think Andrew Lloyd Webber is the most amazing talent of the century.

If that doesn’t activate some sort of spidey-sense, I don’t know what will.


I hope your’re washing your mouth out with soap after a sentence like that, lil’ mister. Even if it was limey-bait.

@nojo: @nojo:

Get the Assassins cast album and see if you change your mind about Sondheim…

@Tommmcatt is hunkered down in the trenches: My daughter played the witch in a youth theater production of “Into The Woods.” I cried when she sang “Children Will Listen.”


So beautiful. That and “Joanna” from Sweeny Tood are my favorites of his, followed closely by “Ladies Who Lunch” and “I Remember Sky”.

@Capt Howdy: She could pick a new fruit to peel every day before the sportscast and the agricultural association would be sure to pick up some sponsorship time. “This sportscast has been brought to you by the California Association of Kiwi Fruit Growers and Jenny’s writhing legs and pelvis!”

@Tommmcatt is hunkered down in the trenches: A good Boy Scout always has a bottle of mouthwash at the ready.

T/J: Tea Partiers allege that liberals have uploaded porn to Tea Party site: I’m sure no one here would do such a thing.

@Dodgerblue: I’m trying to sign up for a Tea Party Nation account, but it hasn’t been “approved” yet, even though I didn’t use “Rachel Maddow” as an alias.

Fun fact: The “captcha” confirmation text I needed to type says “mutated at”.

@Tommmcatt is hunkered down in the trenches: I am not a show queen. I am a theatre professional. There is a difference. I merely warned nojo about Happy Villagers. It was a humanitarian gesture.

And I’d just like to say that I am appalled to see Johhny Earle being mocked on another thread. As if he hasn’t suffered enough! Yet he keeps right on smiling. And doing that adorable crinkly/squinty thing with his eyes. I have nothing to say about Elizabeth. Let me not cast stones. Clearly she never deserved him.

Happy New Year. I’ve been trying to work.

@homofascist: Oh and you want hot boy scouts? Here’s what I call hot. Limey boy scout bringin da heat.

@Benedick is Danny Tanner:

They hammered their tent pegs into the frozen ground at Gilwell Park near Chingford and slept under canvas.

Beeb After Dark.

@nojo: When the Brits bring da hot. Uh huh. Oh yeahhhhhhhh.

@nojo: @Benedick is Danny Tanner:
I dunno
I think talking about hammering tent pegs and boyscouts in the same sentence is inviting a raid from our friends at the FBI.

@Capt Howdy: If Gilwell and Chingford aren’t in the slang dictionary, they oughta be.

@Dodgerblue: Really, I wouldn’t bother until I found the tape of Talibunny rutting a donkey, gripping its belly, swinging like a porch glider and taking god’s name in vain.

@Benedick is Danny Tanner: I knew that would work!

With all of your boy’s schools and tea, I didn’t think limeys were man enough to be Boy Scouts. I am certainly impressed with their tent peg hammering skills. Who would have known?

@homofascist: I didn’t think limeys were man enough to be Boy Scouts.

Robert Baden-Powell might take issue with that.

@homofascist: I got thrown out of the Scouts for laughing during the “Dib dib dib, dob dob dob, We pledge to thee, Arkela,” routine. But yes, I kept the shorts.

@Benedick is Danny Tanner:

I kept the shorts.

oh my. the places I could go with this.
