This one is pretty good too
(H/T Oliver Willis)
Luckovich rocks. Gets my office all in a tizzy when he put them big ears on Gee Dubya…he’s the best reason to look at the AJC.
I wish they would go ahead and call this damn Chambliss/Martin race…
Perfect. I adore Luckovich.
Michael Reagan on CNN: GOP sucks forever if they’re not Ronald Reagan.
This site has been updated also. http://www.palinaspresident.us/
I’ll miss President Palin. "I’m a maaaaverick!"
@JL: That’s the first response which really triggered a catch in my throat.
I don’t get it.
They’re waiting to see if Chambliss can clear 50%. If he can’t, he’s facing a December run-off.
@JL: Wasn’t sure what to
expect :-). Yes we can. We did!!!!
While even many of Lopez’s fellow wingnuts are finding it within themselves to attempt at least one moment of graciousness and declare – if hypocritically – their pride in America’s first black president, that was the best Kathryn Jean could come up with. Infanticide.
You stay classy, K-Lo.
That palinaspresident update is wonderful. Choked me right up all over again.
If that’s what you say you’re not getting, Scrooge, click on the "view original site" link.
@JGabriel: Let her screech. She was irrelevant before and she’ll become even more so. Look at Ann Coulter–she all but disappeared for the last six months of this cycle, popping up near the end on Fox but nowhere else. That schtick gets old real quick.
What do you suppose makes Buckley spin faster in his grave–her vapid thinking or her inability to craft a coherent sentence?
The wingnut reactions I’m finding most entertaining are posts on my local newspaper sites in response to articles detailing Obama’s win. I learned that we’ll now be a Muslim nation, we’ll now be a socialist nation, and because Obama wants to cut the military budget by 25%, we’ll now get attacked like on 9/11.
Can’t speak for anyone else, but I find those messengers to be highly irrelevant.
Several times I wondered what was happening with Annie. She was never shy about bulldozing her way to a mic and got off on people taking offense at her bullshit. I would have thought she’d be salivating over this prez cycle. Did she go through neocon menopause or something?
@Incertus: Personally, I’m glad to read The Corner today. They’re celebrating the win on Yes on 8 in California, for instance, while blithely ignoring the fact that the victories they’re getting are progressively narrower. They’re still in denial of the fact that they’re in retreat everywhere outside the South.
Her inability to craft a sentence – Buckley was a grammar Nazi. Those who lacked the ability to communicate in flawless English were …. "lacking".
Anyone in the mood for some schadenfreude? Go check out a PUMA blog.
My favorite quote from the front page there:
Clueless to the end.
Ann Coulter pissed of the conservative base in 2006 with her John Edwards is a fag comment. She’s still out in the cold for the most part.
I’m wondering what Joe the Plumber is gonna do now.
I think Ed Rollins had it right – he should get a truck with Joe the Plumber and a 1-800 number on it and start making money. That will pay way better than whining about socialism.
Hillbuzz is hilarious. PUMAs are now wondering if Hillbuzz has perpetrated a fraud upon them. Really though, the victims’ own astounding stupidity should be a defense to charges of fraud, at least in this case.
Slightly OT, but I’ve been lurking the message boards here at BU and one of the threads asked if that now Obama was president is whose football tickets is he going to take from in order to give to others. Someone said, Only if you’re a student at Howard University. They just don’t get it. They never will get it. They will always cling to their resentments and blame everyone else for their problems, while the rest of the nation moves forward.
I think the question everyone has forgotten to ask is "How is Obama’s victory good for John McCain?"
The Other Steve
Oh yeah, the sharp knives are out!
I already have a standard/preview for President Obama’s golden age of enlightenment.
Lets see if the Democrats can deliver
Good evening my fellow Americans. In 2000 when you overwhelmingly made the decision to elect me as your 43rd President, I knew the road ahead would be difficult. We have accomplished so much, yet challenges lie ahead.
In the last six years, we have been able to stop global warming. No one could have predicted the negative results of this. Glaciers that once were melting are now on the attack. As you know, these renegade glaciers have already captured parts of upper Michigan and northern Maine. But I assure you, we will not let the glaciers win.
Right now in the second week of May 2006, we are facing perhaps the worst gas crisis in history. We have way too much gasoline! Gas is down to nineteen cents a gallon and the oil companies are hurting. I know that I am partly to blame, by insisting that cars run on trash.
I am therefore proposing a Federal bail-out to our oil companies because hey, if it were the other way around, you know the oil companies would help us.
On a positive note, we worked hard to save welfare, fix Social Security, and of course, provide the universal health care we all enjoy today. But all this came at a high cost. As I speak, the gigantic National Budget Surplus is down to a perilously low 11 trillion dollars. And don’t get any ideas. That money is staying in the very successful lock box. We’re not touching it. Of course, we could give economic aid to China or lend money to the Saudis again, but right now we are already so loved by everyone in the world that American tourists can’t even go over to Europe anymore without getting hugged.
There are some of you would like to spend our money on some made-up war. To you I say, "what part of lockbox don’t you understand?" What if there’s a hurricane or a tornado? Unlikely I know, because of the anti-hurricane and tornado machine I was instrumental in helping to develop…but what if? What if the scientists are right and one of those giant glaciers hits Boston? That’s why we have the lockbox.
As for immigration, solving that came at a heavy cost, and I personally regret the loss of California. However, the new Mexifornian economy is strong and El Presidente Schwarzenegger is doing a great job.
There have been some setbacks. Unfortunately, the confirmation process for Supreme Court Justice Michael Moore was bitter and divisive. However, I could not be more proud of how the House and Senate pulled together to confirm the nomination of Chief Justice George Clooney.
Baseball, our national pastime, still lies under the shadow of steroid accusations. But I have faith in Baseball Commissioner George W. Bush when he says, "we will find the steroid users if we have to tap every phone in America."
In 2001, when I came into office, our national security was the most important issue. The threat of terrorism was real. Who knew that six years later, Afghanistan would be the most popular spring break destination, or that Six Flags Tehran is the fastest growing amusement park in the Mideast…
One of the best parts of this election was watching the Rove playbook fail so drastically. The Fox network became the "all Ayers, all the time" network, and nobody besides the 23%ers was fooled. They called the Democrats un-American, and it backfired. They called people "socialists", "Marxists", etc. and the public (besides the 23%’ers) just yawned. Happy days.
Nice to see that Paul L. will remain as irrelevant as ever.
I at least give him credit for being consistent, although I deduct points for failing to tie in Duke lacrosse.
A super-big FUCK YOU to this guy:
@The Other Steve:
Great stuff about Governor Palin’s wardrobe. Are they still planning to give the clothes to charity? If so, I suggest an auction. Invite Rich Lowry and you could pay off all the campaign’s debts with the proceeds from a single pair of panties.
So that is why the Credit Card AVS was disabled for donations on the Obama website?
And TOS missed this part.
This is worth a giggle. myiq2xu:

I’d rather not, thanks.
