Sunday Morning Coffee (or Tea) – 61

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: This week Rush Limbaugh the drug-addled right wing radio host went on air and criticized Motor Trend magazine for naming the Chevy Volt as the 2011 Car of the Year. He said, “Motor Trend magazine, that’s the end of them. How in the world do they have any credibility?” Motor Trend then defended its reputation by firing back at Limbaugh. The editor posted this on the magazine’s website:

Assuming you’ve been anywhere near the biggest automotive technological breakthrough since … I don’t know, maybe the self-starter, could you even find your way to the front seat? Or are you happy attacking a car that you’ve never even seen in person?

Last time you ranted about the Volt, you got confused about the “range,” and said on the air that the car could be driven no more than 40 miles at a time, period. At least you stayed away from that issue this time, but you continue to attack it as the car only a tree hugging, Obama-supporting Government Motors customer would want. As radio loudmouths like you would note, none of those potential customers were to be found after November 2.

Back to us for a moment, our credibility, Mr. Limbaugh, comes from actually driving and testing the car, and understanding its advanced technology. It comes from driving and testing virtually every new car sold, and from doing this once a year with all the all-new or significantly improved models all at the same time. We test, make judgments and write about things we understand.
….
If you can stop shilling for your favorite political party long enough to go for a drive, you might really enjoy the Chevy Volt. I’m sure GM would be happy to lend you one for the weekend. Just remember: driving and Oxycontin don’t mix.

Don’t you just love the twist of the knife via the Oxycontin reference?

THIS JUST IN: The would-be next President of the United States who thought that Africa was a country has once again revealed her geographic and political ignorance. Sarah Palin appeared on Fox News host and BFF Glenn Beck‘s radio program this week and said, “But obviously, we’ve got to stand with our North Korean allies. We’re bound to by treaty –” Poor Sarah, she was born with a rotting mukluk in her mouth!

BREAKING NEWS: Speaking of Sarah Palin, this week’s episode of “Completely Missing The Point Of An Amazing Speech” features the former ex-quitting half-term Governor of Alaska. Seattlepi.com reports that in her newly released book, Palin lashes out at “a defining [John F.] Kennedy speech, the 1960 appearance where the Catholic presidential nominee discussed separation of church and state before the Greater Houston Ministerial Association.” Sarah Palin writes that Kennedy’s speech “essentially declared religion to be such a private matter that it was irrelevant to the kind of country we are,” and she said Kennedy “seemed to run away from his religion.” Here is what John Kennedy actually said:

“I believe in an America where religious intolerance will someday end — where all men and all churches are treated as equal — where every man has the same right to attend or not attend the church of his choice — where there is no Catholic vote, no anti-Catholic vote, no bloc voting of any kind — and where Catholics, Protestants and Jews, at both the lay and pastoral level, will refrain from those attitudes of disdain and division which have so often marred their work in the past, and promote instead the American ideal of brotherhood. I do not speak for my church on public matters — and the church does not speak for me.”

Does Sarah Palin have a problem with reading comprehension? You make the call!

THIS JUST IN: Is it just me or does anybody else agree that we really did not need to know that Barbara Bush‘s housekeeper put her (Bush’s) miscarried fetus in a jar and showed it to George W.?

BREAKING NEWS: Did anybody else find it humorous that the conservative right’s newest protest fizzled so miserably? All those national security hawks that heralded George W. Bush’s civil rights infringing Patriot Act are now up in arms at the body scanners and enhanced pat downs at airports. In an attempt to drum up another manufactured outrage ala Fox News’ annual “War on Christmas” the crazy conservatives and their Fox News cheerleaders concocted “National Opt Out Day.” Outraged airline passengers across the nation vowed to opt out of body scanning last Wednesday in favor of time consuming pat-downs in an effort to slow airline travel to a crawl and embarrass the Obama administration into doing away with both procedures. Unfortunately, the conservatives’ memo was not distributed very well because virtually everyone opted out of National Opt Out Day.

THIS JUST IN: Former Republican Speaker of the House Tom Delay was found guilty last Wednesday of money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering. He faces up to life in prison. Soon he will be dancing with the boys. ‘Nuff said.

BREAKING NEWS: This week’s episode of “I Do Not Have An Answer” features conservative pundit Ann “The Man” Coulter. Coulter of course, is aghast at the body scanners and enhanced pat-downs performed by the TSA at airports. He appeared as a guest on Sean Hannity’s program and debated the subject with conservative Peter Johnson Jr. Coulter promptly got himself in a hissy fit when he was unable to propose a workable alternative to the screenings and pat downs. In fact, he went so far as to ask Hannity to cut Johnson’s mike and then he said he would not appear on-air with him again.

M’ANN ON THE RUN

(sung to the Paul McCartney and Wings song “Band On The Run”)

Just a boy with no balls, thinking that he’s clever,
Never havin’ no fun nights again, quite true,
Coulter you, Coulter you.

(musical interlude)

Spreading his politics of fear,
Hating you if you’re Black or gay,
Not a hint of veracity,
Does not know any other way
A transsexual without peer.
A transsexual without peer.

Well the rain exploded with a mighty crash when the Coulters had a son,
And before you know it he was growing his hair but he put it in a bun
M’Ann on the run, M’Ann on the run
Coulter had a plan not to be a man. A sex change would be so fun

For the M’Ann on the run, M’Ann on the run, M’Ann on the run, M’Ann on the run,

Next he put mascara on his manly eyes, but he lacked a curvy bum
And as he was singing, he let down his hair. He was having so much fun
M’Ann on the run, M’Ann on the run
Coulter had a plan not to be a man. A sex change would be so fun

Yeah the M’Ann on the run, the M’Ann on the run,
Yeah the M’Ann on the run, M’Ann on the run, M’Ann on the run, M’Ann on the run

Well, Fox News was calling as the right-wing world produced another clown
And the sound he’s making, unbalanced not fair, rumbles through the underground
M’Ann on the run, M’Ann on the run

Always touting “Drudge” and loves to judge
Research reveals this bore

He’s a M’Ann on the run, M’Ann on the run, M’Ann on the run, M’Ann on the run,

  1. Everybody was Kung-Fu Fighting

    The grifter has previously mixed up Iran and Iraq, but what she actually had to offer Beck’s radio audience (aka “the American public”) was even more ridiculous than the confusion over Korea:

    “Well, North Korea, this is stemming from a greater problem, when we’re all sitting around asking, ‘Oh no, what are we going to do,’ and we’re not having a lot of faith that the White House is going to come out with a strong enough policy to sanction what it is that North Korea is going to do. So this speaks to a bigger picture that certainly scares me in terms of our national security policy. But obviously, we’ve got to stand with our North Korean allies – we’re bound to by treaty….”

  2. I just hope others start standing up to Limbaugh and others like Motor Trend did. And I hope $P gets permanently removed from the public in a straight jacket.

  3. Palin is clearly geographically challenged. But I think Mitchell Bard said it best:

    “Her supporters are right. Saying “North” instead of “South” is something that any of us could easily do.

    But here’s the thing: Any of us did not stand up two years ago and claim we were qualified to fill a job that is a heartbeat away from the American presidency. We haven’t written books, made speeches, endorsed candidates and spoken to the (mostly right-wing) media as if we were policy experts. And we haven’t been scouting office space in Iowa for a 2012 presidential run.”

  4. I understand there was a lot of speculation about Tom Delay (after his behind shaking debut on Dancing with the Stars)As you said” Nuff said” I have to add the thought you conjured of him in prison is hilarious. Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy!
