Karma’s a Bitch

TSA agents at LaGuardia were spotted last Friday giving the “Full Monty Patdown” (whatever the fuck that means) to notorious war criminal Henry Kissinger, as he sat in a wheelchair at security. Apparently none of the 9 buck an hour rent-a-cops recognized him or knew who he was, even after he told them who he was.



It won’t make up for the thousands murdered in Cambodia, Vietnam, or Chile, but it’s a start.

Rush Limbaugh said on Wednesday everything was “cool” with his show despite the mass exodus of close to 50 advertisers in the wake of Slutgate.  Yet on Thursday listeners were treated to five minutes of dead air during his show. Dead air. Radio silence. Crickets.  According to Think Progress:

There were four separate instances during this afternoon’s broadcast on WABC 770 AM in New York City where the network fell silent. During the lead in to the show, two and a half minutes of silence was broken up by a single, solitary ad before Limbaugh hit the air. Then, towards the end of the first hour of Limbaugh’s three hour program, a public service announcement was followed by an additional minute of silence before Limbaugh returned. Another minute of dead air came in hour two, and a fifth minute in hour three followed that. A spokesperson for WABC wouldn’t say whether the silence was caused due to a technical glitch or Limbaugh’s fleeing sponsors.

According to Media Matters, 77 of the 86 ads aired on Thursday were free public service announcements. Of the nine paid ads, seven were from companies who are in the process of withdrawing their ads from his show.

Couldn’t happen to bigger sack of shit.

From the Department of No Good Deed Goes Unpunished:

After President Obama declared much of the South a disaster zone after tornadoes killed close to 300 people, Texas Gov. Good Hair Perry stamped his foot, demanded federal assistance for parts of Texas fighting wildfires and wailed, “Why are you taking care of Alabama? Why are you taking care of other states and for some reason or another, the letter didn’t get lost in the mail.”

Guess it’s not just the big guy in the sky who’s ignoring little Ricky.
