Simultaneously sad and hilarious:
This would be our Tweet of the Day:
Irene is a government plot to drive you out of your house and into a concentration camp so Obama can take all your money and give to women in Kenya who want abortions. Yeeeeeeeee.
Over and over today I saw references in the MSM to the Restore Sanity and/or Fear rally in D.C. as one spearheaded by two “comedians.”
The “liberal” American media didn’t know what to make of the rally, in its typically corporate-centered, out-of-touch way.
Thankfully, Al Jazeera still has an idea of what it means to be a journalist as opposed to a corporate hack:
Political satirists. That’s what they are. How hard is that?
While there is absolutely nothing to smile about in the Gulf, this send-up of BP executives’ incompetence and dithering is pretty amusing.
Look at this gaudy bag the Home Shopping Network is hawking tonight. My God. At $260 a pop, it’s sold out!
You have got to be kidding me.
Don’t know whether to file this under “Fashion,” “Financial Crisis,” “Don’t Get Ripped Off,” “Humor/Satire,” or a yet-to-be-established category called something like, Who-Would-Pay-Good-Money-in-This-Economy-For-a-Fly-in-the-Pants-Purchase-Like-This-That-Went-Out-of-Style-in-1200-BC?

(Calm down. This is filed under “Humor/Satire.” The point is to mock what’s happening in Louisiana tonight, sad as it is.)
Read the always spot-on Andy Borowitz: Decision to Stop Making Hummers Saddens Assholes.
Love that title.

Yesterday I read in my local paper that my state representative, Jack Pommer, a Democrat, has been fined $45,000+ for being 915 days late filing campaign finance reports. His excuse? “I’m just really bad at it.” And the dude sits on the Colorado state Budget Committee for God’s sake.
Today I read a transcript of CNBC’s Erin Burnett saying, “it your obligation in this country… [to] pay as little” in taxes “as you can.”
So what did I learn today? Well heck, I’m “just really bad” at filing out tax forms too but insofar as it’s my “obligation” to pay as little as I can, when it comes to filing my 2009 return, I’ll see what I can do to fulfill my “obligation,” but if I don’t get around to actually filing my return for oh, say 2-1/2 years, I’m sure the IRS will understand when I tell them “I’m just really bad at it.” And hey, maybe the government will bail me out and foot the bill for any penalties I might have to pay. Hey yeah, that’ll work.
Something funny coming out of one of the stupidest things to happen in a long time.
After decades as a Republican, Specter suddenly moved to the left.
Come on Karl. I know it’s early but you can come up with something better than that. How about it’s due to brain damage caused by his cancer meds?
And I felt it for eight long, dark years.
Sasha Obama appears before a Senate finance committee to explain how and why she took $136.00 in allowance money last year when so many Americans were suffering due to the recession.
(Given that the right is picking at every little itsy-bitsy thing the Obamas do, don’t do, say or wear, something like this just might come to pass before it’s all said and done.)
