Sunday Morning Coffee (or Tea) – 31

Just a few news bits that have been careening around the cosmos this past week.

BREAKING NEWS: Sarah Palin and the Tea-Baggers teamed up in Searchlight, Nevada yesterday to rally against the re-election efforts of Democratic Senator Harry Reid. For his part, Reid was nonplussed. He said he was “happy so many people came to see my hometown of Searchlight and spend their out-of-state money especially in these tough economic times. Ultimately, though, this election will be decided by Nevadans, not people from other states who parachute in for one day to have a tea party.”

THIS JUST IN: Speaking of Sarah Palin, the former ex-quitting Governor of Alaska is teaming up once again with John McCain. No, they have not announced that they will once again be running for the nation’s top office. This time Palin is campaigning for McCain in his bid for re-election to the Senate. This proves that John McCain is clinically insane. No sane person who was drowning would ask for someone to throw him an anchor.

BREAKING NEWS: founder Dale Robertson brandished a sign with the (misspelled) word “niggar.” Listen, Tea-Baggers, if you insist upon being racists, at least be literate racists.

THIS JUST IN: What is it with Republicans and their obsession with having sex with animals? Sen. John McCain’s (R-Ariz.) primary challenger, former Arizona congressman J.D. Hayworth, warned this past weekend that the same-sex marriage decision handed down by the Massachusetts Supreme Court is so loose in its logic and wording that it could lead to a man marrying his horse.

BREAKING NEWS: A recent Harris Poll reveals that 14 percent of Americans say President Barack Obama may be the Antichrist. When split by political party, 24 percent of Republicans and 6 percent of Democrats viewed the nation’s leader in this way. Ok, I can understand the ignorant Republicans, but who are these 6 percent of Democrats?

THIS JUST IN: The Federal Elections Commission is investigating moonbat crazy Michele Bachmann yet again. How is it that this self described former “Tax Lawyer” cannot seem to add?

BREAKING NEWS: This week’s episode of “It’s About Time” features the mainstream media. This morning’s Boston Globe has finally printed an article which exposes the truth that Republicans want to hide. As we all know, since the passage of health care reform into law, every Republican has sought out the media outlet of his/her choice (generally Fox News) to rant about the unconstitutionality or outright illegality of the individual insurance mandate provision of the new law. The Globe reports the dirty secret however, that the G.O.P. was in favor of mandates before they were against them. Indeed, the whole idea of requiring individuals to purchase health insurance was floated by the uber-conservative Heritage Foundation in the 1990’s as a way to avoid a single payer system. The Globe also points out that two of the G.O.P.’s fiercest critics of the mandate, former Massachusetts Governor Mittwit Romney and recently elected nudist Senator Scott Brown, voted in favor of the mandate in MA and actually signed it into law back in 2006. The Boston Globe has revealed that the true basis for Republican opposition to health care reform is not the content of the law, but rather a blind obsession with opposing anything that the Obama administration hopes to accomplish regardless of merit. They have earned the moniker, “The Party of No”.

THIS JUST IN: Speaking of The Boston Globe and the clothing challenged Scott Brown, have you heard the latest? In an attempt to rake in dwindling out of state donations to his campaign coffer, Brown has recently shown up on many Fox News telecasts as well as on any nationally syndicated or local right wing radio programs to proclaim that he will be challenged in his re-election bid in 2012 by MSNBC host Rachel Maddow. This is news to Rachel Maddow. When she heard the rumor, she immediately declared on her television show that she would not be running for office. She also appeared as a guest on both Ed Schultz‘s radio and television programs to confirm the same. End to the rumor? Nope, Scott Brown continued to insist that Massachusetts resident Maddow would be the Democratic challenger to his seat. In an effort to quash the rumor and expose Brown’s lying ways, Maddow took out a full page ad in Friday’s edition of The Boston Globe. The ad ( a copy of which can be seen here) was a duplicate of the personal letter that she mailed to Brown. The citizens of Massachusetts are finally learning something about the dark side of the person that they just elected to fill Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat. Let’s hope they kick him out in 2012 regardless of the absence of Rachel Maddow.

BREAKING NEWS: This week’s edition of  “Alaskans, I Love You , But…” features the Boston College men’s hockey team. The Boston Globe reports this morning,

When it comes to the big stage, Boston College has a veteran presence. The Eagles brought their experience, talent, determination, and winning pedigree to the Northeast Regional semifinals at the DCU Center (in Worcester, MA) yesterday against an inexperienced Alaska-Fairbanks team that traveled more than 4,000 miles to compete in its first NCAA Tournament.

The Nanooks (18-12-9) showed remarkable poise and grit but the Eagles had more scoring touch and escaped with a 3-1 victory.

BC (26-10-3) improved to 11-0 all time in the first round of the NCAAs and will face Yale, a 3-2 winner over North Dakota.

As a tribute to the BC icemen, here are the Dropkick Murphy’s performing the Boston College fight song, “For Boston”.

Just a little Sarah Palin dittie to start your day. Remember to click on the song link below to familiarize yourselves with the tune and to have more fun singing along.

Born In The USA song link:


(sung to the Bruce Springsteen song, “Born In The U.S.A.”)

Born in an Idaho town
When my parents looked at me they could only frown
My dad he had a job that he sure did hate
So he loaded up the truck and we left the state

I wish I was…

Born in good old AK
Born in good old AK
Born in good old AK
Born in good old AK

We moved to the town of Wasilla
A bland place sort of like vanilla
I became a man killer
A temperament like Godzilla

Born in good old AK
Born in good old AK
Born in good old AK
Born in good old AK

I was soon running for the VP
John McCain said I was so “mavericky”
He bought me shoes and a real fine dress
Then he kicked me off the “Straight Talk Express”

Born in good old AK
Born in good old AK
Born in good old AK
Born in good old AK

I went back to state 49
Acted as if the whole place was mine
I did bitch, I did whine
Committed more than one ethics crime
I did the acts but I won’t serve the time

Up on the North Slope where the oil does flow
I cut some deals oughta make me some dough
Then I think I’ll write a book
You can make a lot of dough when you’re a crook

Born in good old AK
Born in good old AK
Born in good old AK
I’m a lipstick wearin’ pig in the U.S.A.
Born in good old AK
I’m a pocket hockey momma in the U.S.A.
Born in good old AK
