This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things

Not Sarah Palin

This is a picture of pug puppies and a baby. At least, I think that’s what that is.

I don’t know if any of you watch Martin Bashir on a regular basis. We do because he can be funny and trenchant in about equal measure. And plus he’s not Chris Matthews. But yesterday, as you may already know, he suggested that someone should shit in Sarah Palin’s mouth.

This came about because she referred to…

You know what? I really can’t be bothered. No doubt he’ll either have to crawl or resign. I don’t know what he was thinking. Well, actually I do and if you have the patience to watch the video you’ll see the point he’s trying to make.

Trouble is: one can’t excoriate the former half-term governor for abusing a slavery metaphor then turn around and do the same thing yourself. Not unless you have the decency to get drunk first.

Video is here.


I think I would reserve that kind of treatment for war criminals like Henry Kissinger. Palin runs her mouth but has never done anything significant other than boffing Glen Rice.

I missed Martin’s comments . . . thanks for sharing. If you’re not getting fired or suspended from MSNBC you’re just not pulling your weight.
Thanks Martin and thanks Benedick.

I think Martin meant Sarah should be pickled, but I could be wrong.

TJ/ Kittens gained almost a pound in three weeks, and they received their first shots today. We won’t mention the litter box as they don’t think of it much.

Alec Baldwin has a show on MSNBC? Why? He must be hanging out with brother, Stephen.

Shitting down Sarah Palin’s throat would be as futile as act as trying to stuff a garden hose down an open fire hydrant.

Didn’t our very own Flying Chainsaw become fabulously wealthy by inventing and selling the George W Bush open-mouth toilet? Next to the guillotine and the iPhone, it’s the 21st century’s must-have accessory.

/oh and BTW/

Seattle just elected an actual socialist to the city council. Even here in the bluest of the blue states, this is the first time that’s happened in 100 years. Part of her victory statement:

“These exciting results show a majority of voters are fed up with the corporate politicians who have presided over the widening chasm between the super-rich and the rest of us.”

We also elected our first openly gay mayor almost as an after-thought, since we legalized both MJ and marriage equality last year. So proud of Washington, and that I can say that without irony.

And… he begins with a long and extremely well thought-out apology.
