Sunday Morning Coffee (or Tea) – 47

Just a few newsworthy events and comments thereon that have been making their way through the political universe this past week. Please ponder and maybe chuckle a bit before enjoying a wonderful day.

BREAKING NEWS: Mediaputz.com says, “It’s getting so competitive among the vast army of right wing media shills that it’s becoming increasingly hard to get attention as flavors of the month come and go.  Right now Glenn Beck is the corporate media darling, so you don’t hear much from Ann Coulter and Laura Ingraham, for in stance, or Michelle Malkin. Even Bill O’Reilly has become more of a right wing “senior statesman” as compared to the schizophrenic, psychotic, demagogic performance artist known as Beck.

So it must be hard for a B-team winger, such as Laura Schlessinger, to get attention and keep her radio show ratings up.  Maybe that explains why she said what is known as the “n-word” 11 times in 5 minutes to a black caller who was inquiring how to handle racial slights from relatives and friends of her husband, who is white.  Basically, Schlessinger told the caller to get a thicker skin and unleashed a barrage of the “N” word to firmly establish her point and garner a lot of publicity, which she did.  It was the right wing media outrage of the day as far as corporate mainstream media news coverage and the blogosphere.  Mission accomplished, Laura!” Let’s listen to the tape, shall we?

THIS JUST IN: This week’s episode of “The Numbers Do Not Lie” co-stars both Barack Obama and George W. Bush. The next time some crazy conservative tells you that Barack Obama vacations too frequently, repeat these facts. Dur­ing his first year in office, Barack Obama took 26 vaca­tion days. Dur­ing their first years in office, George W. Bush took 69, Bill Clin­ton 21, George H.W. Bush 40, Ronald Rea­gan 42 and Jimmy Carter 21. Trips to Camp David, which were not included as vaca­tion days, were: Obama 27 days, George W. Bush, 78 days.

BREAKING NEWS: Remember Republican Vice President Dan “Potatoe” Quayle? If you do not, here is a little refresher video.

Well, the apple does not fall far from the tree. Mr. Potatoe-Head’s son, Ben Quayle is a Republican congressional candidate in Arizona. In a televised campaign ad, the younger Quayle recently said that Barack Obama is “the worst President in history”. Those are awfully strong words coming from the little spud that claims he is an outsider and will be “a new generation in Washington” when the facts are that he has held three jobs in four years, posed for pictures in campaign literature with children who were not his and grew up in Washington with a famous father, former Vice President Dan Quayle, whose influential friends have given generously to the younger Quayle’s campaign. Oh, we almost forgot, he also lied about the fact that he had once been a contributing writer for Dirty Scottsdale, a raunchy, sex-themed website that covered the club scene in his adopted hometown before morphing into the national gossip site TheDirty.com.

But perhaps DNC spokesman Brad Woodhouse sized up the young Quayle best when he said,
The son of the worst vice president ever may think he has some wisdom on the job performance of political leaders, but if he thinks a president whose actions have saved the country from a second Great Depression, reformed a broken health care system and protected consumers from the risk and greed of Wall Street merits such mention, his analysis is only slightly less ridiculous than his candidacy for public office is.

Ouch! Take that, Ben “Spuds” Quayle!
THIS JUST IN: This week’s episode of “Why Do People Insist That Conservatives Are Violent” features shock jock Hal Turner. He was convicted on Friday of threatening to kill three federal judges in Chicago, Illinois, in retaliation for a ruling they made that upheld handgun bans, government officials said. In 2009 Turner posted the following on his blog, “Let me be the first to say this plainly: These judges deserve to be killed.” The post included photographs of the judges, their phone numbers, addresses and a map of the building where they work. Just another example of the deranged and dangerous mindset of the conservative movement.
