Lo están haciendo mal, pendejos

In October, Fox News launched “Fox News Latino,” a site dedicated to attracting Latino readers. And within two months, they managed to find a way to insult their audience in an article about Spanish actress  Penélope Cruz’s announcement that she will have her baby in Los Angeles with an article entitled “Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem Are Having an Anchor Baby.”

UPDATE: Alert commenter MellBell noticed that the linque no longer works. Thank FSM for screenshots. And even the group ¡Somos Republicans! is pissed about it, though they wrap it in anti-choice rhetoric. (I shit thee not, that’s the name of the group.  Fellow Spanish speakers, shouldn’t it be Republicanos?)


Pfft. Like who’d want to be anchored to this sinking ship?

Trending: Anyone notice that in the Stinque ‘polls’ (as if) the ‘real’ answer is usually the last option? Does Anderson Cooper know?

@Benedick: I never win the poll. Rigged and shit.

@Dodgerblue: You’re welcome. Happy Holidays!

ADD: Awww. They look like implants. :-(

It will be the best-looking anchor baby in history. Talk about winning the genetic lottery.
@JNOV: I don’t think they’re implants.

@Dodgerblue: But Salma is all woman. Team Salma! Too much eye shadow, but that’s not what you’re looking at, eh?

Borked link fixed. I think.

@Mistress Cynica: Agree. Any time I see pictures of those two in the tabloids, I don’t know who to drool over first. Some people around here don’t find Penelope attractive. I’m not one of them. But I’m sure that much to Dodger’s chagrin, I didn’t run a hottie photo of her. Ergo the alt-text.

ADD: The daughter of Halle Berry and her ex the model is pretty damn gorgeous.

@JNOV: I don’t think they’re implants.* Nor do I think Salma Hayek has implants, or at least when she first got her start. They have gotten more pneumatic but I don’t know how much that’s related to having a baby.

*Implants in your linked photo. Pretty clear something happened to Cruz’s chest if you compare that old photo with this one.

@Mistress Cynica: @SanFranLefty: The reasons I think they are implants are because of the space between her breasts, and the right one (our left) seems to have a pretty defined line between her bewbs. (I spend too much time at awfulplastic surgery.com and mammoing implants is a bitch.)

ADD: Yeah, Salma’s look real.

@SanFranLefty: Your Fox link is broken. I wonder why that is…

@mellbell: Oh wow. I guess I need to update the post.

@SanFranLefty: It’s not that Penélope Cruz is unattractive — she’s an A-list female celebrity, after all — it’s just that I’ve never understood her particular appeal.

@JNOV: I was way bummed when she left 30 Rock.

@SanFranLefty: Yeah — for sure in your photo. She may just have gone bigger? Even though her arms are outstretched in the first photo (which could explain the space), she still shouldn’t have that hard curve line on the inside of her right breast. I’m betting she got her first set when she was pre-famous.

@mellbell: Yeah. I dunno. Maybe it’s because in Hollywood, There Can Only Be One Latina bombshell. I dunno. I don’t think Penelope is exactly unattractive, but something about her makes me think of ferrets. I like ferrets! She’s just kinda meh.

@mellbell: I have never seen 30 Rock. :-( Gotta check it out. Right now the kids are watching Skins. Um. I think I’m going to have to leave the room.

@JNOV: If you’re looking for Salma, you’ll have to skip to season 3, but I wouldn’t recommend skipping any of it.

Sad TJ: Ten dead U.S. soldiers highlighted at the end of News Hour tonight. Three of them were 20 or younger. That mean they were 11 when we attacked Afghanistan. 11!!! They looked like babies. They were babies.

And we can’t even count all the dead kids in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan.

Explain again why anyone would want to anchor a baby to this country, as JNOV noted….

@mellbell: Yeah. I don’t know why I never watched it — it probably conflicted with another show. Gotta start from the beginning for sure.

@SanFranLefty: This world. Has it always been like this? Maybe it has, and we just didn’t have the technology to inflict such harm and the ability to have (relatively decent) information at our fingertips. I dunno. That’s kind of my answer to everything now. I just don’t know.

Okay, so what’s this all about? Celebrities Who Once Were Undocumented. Two token white guys thrown into the mix.

Somos Republicans hasn’t been paying attention:

Since when do conservative networks use a demeaning term in connection with a baby?

Oh, for awhile now

@Benedick: Anyone notice that in the Stinque ‘polls’ (as if) the ‘real’ answer is usually the last option?

Yeah, about two years ago.

@SanFranLefty: Holbrooke was right, whether he said it or not. Time to get the fuck out.

@mellbell: I understand it. I think she’s more attractive than Salma. I’m hearing quacking noises from the direction of Santa Fe as I write this.

@SanFranLefty: Duck Face Girl?

@JNOV: What??? Never seen 30 Rock?

@redmanlaw: I respect Tina Fey, but every time I try to watch 30 Rock my blood sugar spikes the meter.

@TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ: The hospital was founded by the the Sisters of Mercy. Awesome. My law school garage band covered one of their songs.

Wonder if that hospital is part of the Jesus and Mary Chain?

@redmanlaw: It’s not just you who calls her that. One of my friends was calling her that this morning when, for some reason, we were listing names of actresses whose charms we don’t get.

This Penelope woman. Very pretty but supremely untalented. A third rate Claudia Cardinale.

@Benedick: Oh! Purty! Wish my hair would do that, but it might be a fall.

TJ/ Oh! Yesterday I got a hair cut for the first time since 2007! w00t!

ADD: This PC hates me.

@redmanlaw: Yeah, it conflicted with Rob Dyrdek, My Supersweet 16 or some ole shit like that.

missed your question last night. they did indeed make the big announcment. the website is here and the press release is here.

described as a “lovecraftian, steampunk, horror, action/RPG”.

oooo baby.

@JNOV: Too bad about la computadora, otherwise you could watch ALL 42 ZOMBIE KILLS from “The Walking Dead.”

Ahhh. . . que lastima.

@JNOV: I have not had a haircut since about 1992.

@redmanlaw: Breaking: Bill Richardson going to North Korea, looking for asian pussypeace.

@Dodgerblue: Been in the news here for at least a few days. That dude has no more cred or capital here at all.

You saw that the NORKS have a lot more uranium enriching capacity than previously thought, right?

@redmanlaw: So they say. I’ll bet that makes the Chinese government really nervous.

@Dodgerblue: From the Danger Room blog at Wired:

On Monday, a South Korean intelligence official told the Chosun Ilbo that Washington and Seoul suspected “three or four locations” to be uranium-enrichment sites besides Yongbyon. An anonymous U.S. government senior official added to the Financial Times, “I think one has to assume that there are today additional undeclared enrichment-related facilities.” It’s doubtful that they know for certain, given the difficulties intelligence agencies have in penetrating hermetic North Korea, but that’s the working presumption.

Last month, Siegfried S. Hecker, a former Los Alamos National Laboratories director, recounted how North Korean officials unexpectedly showed him a 200-centrifuge uranium-enrichment operation at Yongbyon, a capability that he said “significantly exceeds my estimates.” Almost immediately, David Albright of the Institute for Science and International Security warned that the apparent speed with which the North built the enrichment facility suggests “this may not be the first gas centrifuge plant that North Korea has built.”

All this flies in the face of international sanctions to stop or even slow Pyongyang’s* nuclear efforts.


* only world capital whose name sounds like a boner sound effect

@redmanlaw and Dodgerblue: But we don’t need a stinkin’ START treaty! The North Koreans are also selling uranium and possibly nukes to the Burmese general/dictators. No wonder the generals lifted Aung San Suu Kyi’s house arrest — they want to be showered with money and attention like Pakistan, and not be treated like Cuba. Nukes are the quickest way for them to get some attention.

@SanFranLefty: They did it all for the nukies! For the nukies!

Why did it take so long?
Why did I wait so long, huh
To figure it out? but I did it
And I’m the only one underneath the sun who didn’t get it?


Re: The Lady: I though U2 freed her ass.

@redmanlaw: @SanFranLefty: Breaking: Pentagon shut down by blinking Christmas ornament in trash can: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/12/15/AR2010121505805.html. No word yet whether Santa was strip-searched.

@Dodgerblue: That same thing happened in NYC yesterday, I believe. Maroons.

@Capt Howdy: LOVE! Thank you!

@redmanlaw: Ahem. My computer is temporarily ill until I accidentally make the problem worse fix it. Until then I have to deal weirdness that happens when you try to use power keys that don’t exist, weird mice and windows that are bassakward. BUT I CAN STREEEEEEM, BABY!

Breaking: Mrs RML just interviewed lib radio host and another Secret GF of mine* Stephanie Miller, who is coming to Santa Fe at Christmas. I’ll post the column here and at De Face when it comes out.

* Rachael Maddow, Kari from Mythbusters, Shirley Manson from Garbage. Only half are gay.

@Dodgerblue: You watch smarter tv shows than I do.

Thursday – martini by the fire for Big Bang Theory and 30 Rock (a repeat of a not very good episode).

Fist snow of the winter in SF today.

@redmanlaw: We had a dusting last Friday, but today was the first snow that stuck.

@mellbell: Don’t lick the Festivus pole or you’ll end up like that kid in A Christmas Story.

Back to the iPhone. I has a sad. But I can streeeem Netflix on this fucker! Too bad I need bifocals.

@RML: If my last haircut were in ’92, I’d be stepping on this mess. I had about 4″ cut off. Lady Godiva has nothing on me. Except the horse. And the title. And the fame. The cats were nesting in it while I slept.

@JNOV: My pony tail hangs to my belt when I let my freak flag fly.

@redmanlaw: Well, we’ll just have to have a freak off. Longest hair is da winnah! When mine is wet, the back reaches my waist since it’s been cut. The hair framing my face reaches my underarms. I have to have long layers, or I look like Lilandra Neramani. I’m more a Kitty Pryde/Jean Grey/Rogue kinda chick. Now if I could rock the white mohawk…
