Every new venture is going to have a rocky start, so why should the Republican foray into the mysteries and vagaries of the intertrons and teh google be any different:
“Our majority was emaciated by electoral liposuction, our bold rebranding initiative put speed freaks to sleep and our approval rating nose-dived faster than Bozo on a bender.”
—Republican House Policy Committee Chairman Thaddeus McCotter, who — help us — is “blogging” now for Andrew Breitbart’s “Big Hollywood”
So much fail.
Please leave analogy-butchering to experts like Thomas Friedman.
Thaddeus McCotter — wasn’t that the name of the prep school asshole from every John Hughes movie?
In any case, he’s about as good at metaphors as Ray Romano’s sportscaster character from that SNL sketch:
Is McCotter a cat? Only reason I can think of that you used the cat blogging tag is if McCotter is actually a "blogging" Republican cat. Meow.
The whole concept of the much hyped "Big Hollywood" blog is mind blowing. Change the politics of Hollywood with a blog composed of 3rd rate conservative blowhards? Uh, okay. Sure. And I’m going to change NASA through interpretive dance.
Over at Kung Fu Monkey, John Rogers has a brilliant takedown of the very premise of Big Hollywood.
And that Rogers post led me back to an even more classic takedown of a similar effort.
Joe the Plumber’s apparently so hot he’s got flames behind him in that ad. Did PJTV summon him from the pits of Hell?
Clueless is not just a movie. lol
WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN?!
maxbaer (not the original)
Couldn’t they at least start calling him Joe the ex-Plumber?
My God that explosion is beautiful.
Also, the photoshopping on that banner is atrocious. I’ve done better cropping than that and I suck at photoshop.
So when does Joe the Plumbing Tool actually start, y’know,
finding people who want to talk to himreporting from Israel?
The Grand Panjandrum
Your alma mater owes you (or your parents) a refund.
My gosh, that McCotter blog "entry" is almost Fellini-esque in its absurdity and surreality. What does it mean??????
It’s like Hunter S. Thompson, writing sober. Maybe. Who can say?
