Sunday Morning Coffee (or Tea) – 81

Just a few newsworthy items (and comments thereon) that have been making their way through the political universe this past week but may have escaped your attention. Please ponder and maybe chuckle a bit before enjoying a wonderful day!

BREAKING NEWS:  The Republicans have been correct all along. There is voter fraud. Unfortunately for the GOP however, it is their side that appears to be committing it. Firedoglake.com reports that in Wisconsin three of the recall elections against Republican state senators have been certified. Additionally, there is a hearing scheduled this week to deal with challenges to the other six – three against Republicans, three against Democrats. But the Government Accountability Board has delayed the decision on the Democratic recalls, because of allegations of faulty signature-gathering.

THIS JUST IN:  Conservative commentator George F. Will appeared on ABC’s “This Week” and said this about the possibility of Sarah Palin being trusted with nuclear weapons,

“The threshold question, not usually asked, but it’s in everyone’s mind in a presidential election. ‘Should we give this person nuclear weapons?’ And the answer [in Palin’s case], answers itself.”

Ouch! That is going to leave a mark.

BREAKING NEWS:  Question of the week. How many more innocent people must be gunned down in Arizona before that renegade state gets serious about gun control?

THIS JUST IN:  A California Federal court judge has ruled that the civil lawsuit filed by a former ACORN employee against propaganda film-maker James O’Keefe III and an associate can move forward. O’Keefe is the person who posed as a pimp and secretly recorded a conversation with the ACORN employee before publishing an extensively edited version. The California Attorney General’s Office investigated Acorn in 2009, but ultimately found that the conversations, while “highly inappropriate,” were not in violation of state criminal laws. In the case at bar, U.S. Judge M. James Lorenz ruled that the First Amendment does not protect the alleged illegal conduct of the two conservative activists.

BREAKING NEWS:  It was nice to see Fox News take a beating this week. Newscorpse.com reports that “This was a really bad month for Fox News which lost viewers in the demo for every primetime show. Bill O’Reilly dropped 9%, Sean Hannity dropped 6%, and Greta Van Susteren dropped 12%. These declines occurred while almost every primetime program for both CNN and MSNBC gained by double digits. The only good news for Fox is that Glenn Beck, which sunk 17% in the demo, has already been canceled so he can’t do too much more harm. An interesting wrinkle in this book is that MSNBC was also the number one cable news network among 18-34 year-olds in primetime, with a 7% advantage over CNN and a 14% lead over Fox News.”

THIS JUST IN: Sarah Palin quote of the week. While participating in the Rolling Thunder motorcycle rally last week in Washington DC, the former ex-quitting half-term governor of Alaska said, “I love that smell of the emissions!” ‘Nuff said.

BREAKING NEWS:  This week’s episode of “Publicity Stunts That Keep Repeating Themselves” features Donald Trump. The bankrupt billionaire now says that he has not ruled out running for President in 2012. This time however, The Donald states that he may run as an Independent. Let’s hope that he does and thereby splits the Republican vote!

THIS JUST IN: Mark your calendars and begin planning the party. it has been announced that Glenn Beck‘s Fox News program will finally be cancelled on June 30th. Can I have an “Amen”?

BREAKING NEWS:  Fox News comment of the week. Headline: “Los Angeles Police Nab ‘Main Aggressor’ In Giants Fan Beating”. Comment: “a thousand Mexocans should die for what happened to Mr. Stow. why do we continue to put up with this race of brown vermin.. why???”

THIS JUST IN:  The newest Republican Presidential candidate has put himself at odds with his party and its base yet again. Mitt Romney yesterday reaffirmed his view that global warming is occurring and that humans are contributing to it. This may spell doom for his election chances as conservatives do not believe in science.

BREAKING NEWS: Just in case you somehow missed it, here is Sarah Palin‘s version of Paul Revere’s ride which she gave while in Boston this week:

He was warning the British? He was ringing bells? Wouldn’t ringing bells defeat the whole purpose of quietly lighting the lanterns so as not to alert the enemy? Palin really should have Netflix send over those school-House Rock dvd’s before she makes any more public statements.

THIS JUST IN:  Just wondering, but has anyone heard from Ann “The Man” Coulter or Michelle “Anchor Baby” Malkin lately? Where have these two big mouths slithered off to? Their 15 minutes must have expired.

RIGHT WING RADIO

(sung to the Everclear song “AM Radio”)

Portions of this lame programming are reproduced
By means of electronical transcriptions or tape recordings.

Radio
You can hear that bullshit on the right wing radio

There’s Ann Coulter and Sean Hannity
There’s lots of that Glenn Beck’s crap
Heavy on insanity

It’s simulcast along
The world wide webs

They’re pouring out pitchers full of Kool-Aid
Through the internets grid

Tea-Bagging clowns
On the air waves

Won’t talk to you if you’re black, young or gay

Limbaugh taught ‘em
The EIB chair
Is so toxic and vile
And it is unbalanced and unfair

Yo!
You must listen
To the poison on
That right wing radio (right wing radio, right wing radio)

Yeah… there’s no need for music
On right wing radio (right wing radio)

Savage is without a clue
Steers clear of every single neighborhood
In a state if that state is “Blue”

Malkin
Makes an ungodly sound
Crazy shit she’s into
Cruisin’ with that Glenn Beck clown

These nuts are broadcast across the nation
To the dumb and poor
Who mimic them like apes

They’re all right their at prime-time
Sean Hannity looks fried
Bill O’Reilly and that Sarah P. lie all goddamn night

Don’t lie in bed with the radio on
You will lose your sanity before long
When you hear Glenn Beck and his song

There’s lots of hate
And you can hear it
On that right wing radio (right wing radio, right wing radio)

Yeah… there’s no need for music
On right wing radio (right wing radio)

Listen to Limbaugh say
“Boy…Let’s bring Obama down!”

Oh no, “The Glenn Beck” show again.
I don’t wanna hear that show
Talk about “end times” and socialism, man, he such a fool
Turn it off
(Turn it off, turn it off, turn it off)

Sean Hannity is on at five
I feel like throwing up
When he spins
All that lame jive
Lives in a bubble where he is “the man”
Can’t be trusted
Cuz he lies
Like Glenn Beck and that’s a fact, man

Remember way back in two-thousand-seven
They said Romney and his cohorts
Would be leading us to heaven
If ol’ Rush Limbaugh
Could have had his way
“Operation Chaos”
Would have had Hilary Clinton
On election day
Hey!
Election day!
Hey!
No way!
Hey Rush, go away!

There must be a place we can tell them to go
A real hot place where they don’t have any snow
But they’re sure to have right wing radio

Huh-uh huh-uh huh-uh huh

Yeah, things get real stupid
On those stupid shows
The hosts are really daffy

There’s no need for music
On right wing radio (right wing radio)
There’s no need for music
On right wing radio (right wing radio)
There’s no need for music
On right wing radio (right wing radio, right wing radio)

Make it stop (right wing radio, right wing radio)…It grows old
Make it stop
Reminds me of bad disco

Palin To Arizona To US Senate… Hmmm

Julie Driscoll of Examiner.com has written a very interesting piece.

She speculates that Sarah Palin may have recently purchased a new home in Arizona. By the way, what is it with the Palins and Arizona? First, Sarah Palin ran on the same presidential ticket as an Arizona senator. Next, her sniper-sighted advertisement was associated with the shooting of Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. Not too long thereafter, we were told that former unwed teen mother Bristol Palin had purchased a home in Arizona where she would live while pursuing her college degree at Arizona State University. That whole story proved to be a false alarm of course, when Bristol announced last month that she was moving to Los Angeles to share an apartment with two men while filming (what else but) a reality television series. Now it’s Sarah Palin to Arizona? What gives?

The house in question is described as an “8,000-square-foot, dark-brown stucco home with a guard gate that can keep unwanted visitors away. It has six bedrooms, five bathrooms, a six-car garage, a swimming pool and spa, and a full basement with a home theater, billiards room and wine cellar. Safari Investments LLC paid $1.695 million cash for the home in a deal that appears designed to cloak the identity of a high-profile buyer.” Driscoll says that the “high profile buyer” is rumored to be none other than the former ex-quitting half-term governor of Alaska.

Reason for the change of locale? Driscoll opines that it is so Sarah Palin can run for the US Senate seat being vacated by fellow liar and Republican John Kyl. Kyl you might remember, is the guy who lied on the Senate floor when he said that that 90% of Planned Parenthood services were abortion-related, when in fact, the actual number is 3%. Palin of course, lies about everything from saying “Thanks, but no thanks” to that bridge to nowhere, to suggesting to Katie Couric that she was involved in trade missions with Russia, to proclaiming that the Democratic Party health care reform law included “death panels”. Hence, an Arizona senate seat is the perfect place for a liar.

So what will it be? A run for the presidency? A run for an Arizona senate seat? Or neither? Please do tell, Sarah. Enquiring minds want to know.

Born To Run song link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9wgnTU31z7s

BORN TO RUN

(sung to the Bruce Springsteen song “Born To Run”)

In the day she sweats it out on the streets, she’s a runner-up beauty pageant queen
At night she tears her hair out in worry atop Todd’s snow-machine
Hate filled rages at the five and dime
High heeled, misdirected and sporting a sixties beehive, Whoa
Wasilla town hopes she never comes back
She’s a dumb quack, a political hack
Sarah speaketh with a forked tongue
But tramps like her, baby they were born to run
(yes she will run)

Sarah’s got thin skin but she’ll run again
She can’t find work on television
SarahPAC will cater to her whims
Their dedicated to her mission
Together they will dish out crap
She’ll run till she drops, maybe from a heart attack, Whoa
All her friends, she’ll continue to hire
‘cause baby she wants to be the next “Decider”
But her wagon has lost all its wheels
She behaves like a little child girl, a pitbull refusing to heel
(full of baloney)

(Twitter break)

She’s filled with malice right down to the bones buried in her backyard
She casts no reflection in brand new mirrors
Like a vampire caught off guard
Her unfeeling heart, rises cold and dark
A dominatrix with an iron fist
She’s gonna try to befriend thee in the deep dark night
With a wink and a blown kiss, Huhh

(Facebook break)

(one two three four…)

She’s got a bunch of Fox News zeroes that fuel her hopes and drive
Sarah Palin likes you if you are white and have no use for gay pride
Every Wednesday she will give an address
That will reveal all the madness in her soul, Whoa
Someday girl, we don’t know when, you’ll learn that you’re a disgrace
Something we already know, her career will be done
But till then just like puss, Sarah will return to run

Oh, Sarah just like puss, baby we hope that you run

Please believe me, all of us baby, sure hope that you will run

Will Season 2 Be Titled “Sarah Palin’s Arizona”?

Sarah Palin celebrates New Year's Eve in Maricopa, Arizona

For those of you that just cannot get enough of Sarah Palin and the rest of her Wasilla Hillbillies, TLC has just announced that the first season of “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” will be released on DVD. Oh yes, for a mere $ 19.98 you can purchase the two disc set beginning on April 5, 2011. The Hollywood Gossip reports, ” The DVD features all 387 minutes of Sarah camping with Kate Gosselin, bashing Michelle Obama and embarking on various hunting and fishing trips.” Now you also too can relive the magic again and again as the former ex-quitting half-term Governor of Alaska brazenly executes animals before your eyes for no reason other than television ratings.

Speaking of “former” and “quitting”, it is also now rumored that the Queen of Quit may also be quitting on Alaska. Amy Andrews, the Gossip Girl of Irish Central tells us that all the Palins have had enough of snowy Alaska and therefore will be accompanying dancing daughter Bristol for the sun and good life in Arizona. Andrews says, “There are no ties that bind Sarah to Alaska any more and she will surely prosper in the warmer climate and with far more ease of travel to states like California, not to mention, early primary states in the Midwest and East Coast.” Yet , “It is ironic that Sarah will be ending up in the state where her presidential candidate running mate hails from. If Sarah had lived in Arizona in 2008 she could not have run for VP .”

A source told Robotceleb.com that “Both Sarah and Bristol are millionaires and have had enough of Alaska.” They go on to say that  “Sarah and Bristol raved about the sun and great weather in Los Angeles where Bristol Palin recently lived while appearing on the hit show “Dancing with the Stars”. Bristol Palin is planning on enrolling at Arizona State University in the fall.” Any guess how long the erudite Bristol will last at one of the “biggest party schools” in the nation or at any college for that matter? Then again, if she can’t cut it there, Sarah should be quite capable of helping Bristol fill out a transfer application inasmuch as mom matriculated at five different colleges before earning a mere bachelor’s degree.

As for Sarah Palin, Arizona seems the perfect fit. You might recall that her dad Chuck Heath once said that his daughter transferred out of Hawaii Pacific University because she was uncomfortable with foreigners. No problem with that in Arizona as the result of its racist profiling law and hate of immigrants. The Palins have such pasty white complexions that chances are slim they will ever be asked by an Arizona State Trooper to produce “their papers”. As an added benefit, Sarah Palin will be able to film season 2 of her reality television show in the Grand Canyon State. Palinbots nationwide will be thrilled to see their version of Annie Oakley reload and take aim at the most dangerous game of all, … Hispanics!

SAME OLD LAME WHINE

(sung to the Dan Fogelberg song “Same Auld Lang Syne”)

Met Sarah Palin at a Walmart store
She was shoplifting like a thief
There was no sign of kids or the “First Dude”
‘Cuz Sarah brings home the beef

I recoiled from her aging face at first
But then her eyes flew open wide
She knew I saw the moose meat in her purse
And then she just fibbed and lied

I said I was not a security man
And then Sarah Palin was glad
She lacked any sense of embarrassment
At the thought that she was bagged

I asked if we could have a drink or two
Cuz she was such a rising star
We met “Joe Sixpack” at the liquor store
And we three went to a bar

We drank a toast to ignorance
We drank a toast to Mao
She tried to explain her head’s emptiness
But she did not know how

She said she’s married to a derelict
Who can’t keep a job if he tried
She would have like to say she loved the man
But she couldn’t stand the guy

I said “death panels” were the end for her
That she could turn a Red-State Blue
And did she fear her would-be son-in-law?
She just said, “Lynn, F_ _ _  you”

She said she hated all the pro-choice whores
And that she hoped they’d go to Hell
I asked if Coulter was a “he” or “she”?
Palin said she could not tell

She toasted her omnipotence
And asked us all to bow
I said, “so long and good riddance,
I must be leaving now”

Then one last toast to ignorance
Cuz it was closing time
She lacks a sense of eloquence
But has that old lame whine

The beers were empty and our tongues were tired
Another book signing today
She put her hat on and hopped on her broom
And I watched her fly away

She graduated from a “safety school”
So she has no-one else to blame
There’s no intelligence inside her dome
That’s why she is so lame.

Boycott Of Racist Arizona Is Succeeding

The Associated Press reports that a boycott of Arizona following a controversial immigration law has cost the state more than $140 million in lost meeting and convention business. “The economic impact analysis commissioned by the Center for American Progress put hotel industry losses during the first four months after the signing at about $45 million. Visitors would have spent an additional $96 million during their stays, said Angela Kelley, the group’s vice president for immigration and advocacy.” The report conducted by the respected Scottsdale-based economic firm Elliot D. Pollack & Co. also says that lost bookings will probably continue for more than a year, multiplying the effect of the boycott called by immigrant-rights activists after Republican Governor Jan Brewer signed the state’s new racist profiling law last April. That law required police-in enforcing other laws-to question the immigration status of those suspected of being in the country illegally. Portions of the law have already been struck down by the courts.

The success of this boycott is a strong indication of the power of community action. It proves that the community as a whole can right the wrongs of an insensitive governmental action. In short, the state of Arizona is being financially punished for its insensitive law by the citizens and businesses of other states that are refusing to vacation and conduct business in Arizona until the law is modified or abolished. A similar tactic was used against Arizona 20 years ago over its refusal to honor the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. with a holiday.

Good work people. Keep it up until this racist law is repealed.

ARIZONA

(sung to the Mark Lindsay song “Arizona”)

I sure do long for San Francisco
This Arizona day
They just pulled over ol’ Pedro and Cisco
Racism has its way
Police don’t believe in brotherhood or neighborhood
If your skin is brown, you’re prey
And Jan Brewer we all laugh at her
As she initiates the neo-Nazi ways

Arizona – take off your racist shades
Arizona – have another look at the world
My, my
Arizona – don’t follow John McCain
Arizona – hey, put down that Kool-Aid

Mmmm try as you might, you’ll never solve your problems by deporting a child
Coat them in red paint as you place them in shackled restraints
Arizona – you’ve made the evening news
Arizona – You’ll have pure white highways

Lock them both up, Pedro and Cisco
Make them sit there and wait
As the wheels of justice turn so slow
Just stare at them with hate
And you can tell them that brotherhood and neighborhood
Is the Arizonan way
But you and they know it’s an untrue fable
To justify locking them away

Arizona – now you resemble Hades
Arizona – you’ll soon be cut off from the world
My, my
Arizona – don’t follow John McCain
Arizona – wake up and use your brain

Hey, Arizona – discard your racist views
Arizona – you’ll soon be cut off from the world
My, my
Arizona – next will it be the Jews?
Arizona – wake up and use your brain

Come on, hey, Arizona – cast off your racist ways.

Sarah Palin Exposed As Classless, Unpatriotic And Ignorant

Jan Brewer's Cajones Are This Big

Remember the days immediately following 9/11, right on through the run-ups to both the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, when Republicans labeled any criticism of President George W. Bush as “unpatriotic”? They argued that during wartime, the President must be fully supported by both parties and that any negativism about his policies bordered upon treason. You might also recall that the most vocal solicitor of that mindset was none other than the wholly owned G.O.P. subsidiary known as Fox News. For years Fox hosts such as Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity and Glenn Beck broadcast on a nightly basis their newest addition to their list of Democratic traitors who dared to question the President’s tactics regarding national security. The G.O.P. and Fox blindly worshiped Bush and Co. and hailed the virtues of such civil rights restrictions as The Patriot Act, the warrantless wiretapping program and even the illegal torture of detainees. In short, the Republicans and Fox News unequivocally proclaimed that “You are either with us or against us and, if you are against us, you are a traitor”.

Well, something funny happened on the way to 2010. The wars in Afghanistan and Iraq continue, but a Republican is no longer the Commander in Chief. Suddenly, both the G.O.P. and Fox News have come full circle and believe that it is quite appropriate and, dare we say “patriotic”, to criticize the President on matters of national security. And damn the facts, their criticisms of Barack Obama are usually based upon fabricated falsehoods and unadulterated fear mongering.

One of the most despicable purveyors of non-fact based Presidential criticism is none other than Sarah Palin. The former half-term ex-quitting governor of Alaska, failed Republican Vice Presidential candidate and current Fox News contributor cannot go a single day without tweeting, posting an indecipherable Facebook message or taking to the Fox airwaves to spew her uniquely incomprehensible form of anti-Obama rhetoric. Remember her lies about the fictitious “death panels” included in the health care reform law? How about her lie that President Obama would “ban guns if he could” despite the fact that his stated policy on gun ownership is “there’s nothing that I will do as President of the United States that will in any way encroach on the ability of sportsmen to continue that tradition (of owning guns)”. Another example is Palin’s Fox broadcast lie that the Obama administration was hampering the clean-up of the Gulf oil spill by failing to accept help from “the Dutch and the Norwegian (sic)”. Her fictitious accusations go on and on, but we digress.

Palin sank to a new low last Sunday while appearing as a guest on “Fox News Sunday”. While discussing the Obama administration’s partial judicial victory last week in the litigation over Arizona’s controversial immigration law, Palin said  that Arizona’s female Republican governor has “the cojones that our President does not” when it comes to securing America’s borders. You read that correctly, the verbally challenged Palin claimed, in essence, that Jan Brewer has more “balls” than Barack Obama. How is that for showing respect for the office of the President of the United States of America during a time of war? Here is her full quote:

And, Jan Brewer, bless her heart, she’s going to do all that she can to continue down the litigation path to allow secure borders because she’s – Jan Brewer has the cojones that our president does not have to look out for all Americans – not just Arizonans – but all Americans in this desire of ours to secure our borders and allow legal immigration to help build this country. . . . if our own president will not enforce a federal law, more power to Jan Brewer . . . to do what our president won’t do.

Sarah Palin has shown once again that she is a classless hillbilly. To publicly criticize the Commander in Chief by making reference to his genitalia is beyond contempt. What is it with Palin’s obsession with all things sexually related? Remember when in her ghost-written memoir she claimed that two of her daughters were threatened with gang rape at school (although “mama bear” never reported such to either the police or school officials)? There was also the time that she accused her grandson’s father Levi Johnston of being involved in the porn industry for modeling nude in Playgirl while ignoring the fact that she endorsed the  Republican Senate candidate and nude centerfold model Scott Brown.  How about when she accused author Joe McGinniss of peering into daughter Piper’s bedroom? Sarah Palin has sex on the brain and lacks the dignity to keep her thoughts to herself and not on the national airwaves. She is like that friend or relative that you are always afraid to invite to public gatherings for fear that she will embarrass you with some sort of inappropriate sexual remark better suited for the bedroom.

Furthermore, does Palin not realize that we are still at war and by her own standards it is unpatriotic to criticize the President? Additionally, she is ignorant of the fact that the Obama administration has done more to secure our borders and has captured more illegal aliens than the Bush regime. Yet, where was her criticism then? She doesn’t want you to know that there are more National Guard troops at the southern border than at any time in the past and more are on the way. She also doesn’t want you to know that this administration has deported more illegal aliens than did the Bush regime. She wants you to forget that her own running mate, John McCain advocated not only a forgiveness to illegal immigrants, but a path to citizenship. Can you recall her demeaning his cajones? By the way, let’s take a look at Sarah Palin unsuccessfully attempting to explain her policy on illegal immigrants. It is a real laugh to witness her complete lack of understanding how to address the issue.

So there you have it. Sarah Palin is classless because of her complete lack of respect for the office of the President which is exemplified by her vulgar genitalia language. She is unpatriotic (by her own terms) because she undermines a war time President by saying that his policies weaken our national security. She is ignorant because she has no coherent policy of her own. Hey Sarah, let’s put this in terminology you can understand. When you fall on your face during your next political campaign, let’s hope your tetas don’t deflate!

UN-AMERICAN GIRL

(sung to the Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers song “American Girl”)

Well, she’s an un-American girl
Breakin’ promises
Not much of a thinkin’ girl bear
We wish Palin would live life – somewhere else

After all it is a great big world
And she could take her gun too
And she could go on a –  lyin’ spree
Start one little foreign based new G.O.P.

Oh yeah, far right
She’s a sleazy lady
Makes us laugh all night
She’s an un-American girl

The truth may just unfold alright
Joe Mac stands alone on his balcony
Yeah, even though her fence is high, Sarah Palin can’t run
And she can’t stop Joe’s free speech

Palin’s one ornery mama bear
Yet she has many enemies
God, we’re so thankful she’ll never get those votes
Election’s far out of reach

Not wrapped, too tight
She’s a sleazy lady
Makes us laugh all night (makes us laugh all night)
She’s an un-American girl


Judge Smacks Down Portions Of Illegal Arizona Immigration Law

Federal District Judge, Susan Bolton has temporarily blocked the most contentious portions of Arizona’s new immigration law on the eve of its implementation. Yesterday, her court issued a preliminary injunction which prevents the State of Arizona from authorizing its police to question people about their immigration status. She also blocked provisions of the law making it a crime to fail to apply for or carry alien registration papers or “for an unauthorized alien to solicit, apply for or perform work,” and a provision “authorizing the warrantless arrest of a person” if there is reason to believe that person might be subject to deportation.

The federal government opposed the Arizona law because it infringed upon the federal government’s exclusive jurisdiction over immigration laws. The Justice Department successfully claimed that a patchwork of state and local policies would seriously disrupt federal immigration enforcement and would ultimately be counterproductive.

The state of Arizona now has only two options available. It can ask the judge to reconsider her order after more fact finding or it can appeal the case to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. The latter is more likely.

So, for the time being,  legal immigrants and citizens of brown complexion can travel throughout Arizona without fear of being asked for “their papers” Thank goodness for that. But we can only wait to hear the reaction from Rush Limbaugh, Michele Bachmann, the Tea Party and Sarah Palin and her cohorts over at Fox News. Do you think Glenn Beck might summon a few crocodile tears for his country? Will Lou Dobbs spontaneously combust? Will John McCain flip-flop again? To learn the answers, tune in tomorrow to Lynnrockets’ Blast-Off; same time, same channel.

Sunday Morning Coffee (or Tea) – 39

Just a few noteworthy news satellites that have been careening around the blogosphere this week…

BREAKING NEWS: BP has still been unable to cap the massive oil spill triggered by its and Hailliburton‘s and Transocean‘s negligence. The “let’s try to fill the thing with golf balls” method indicates the lack of repair alternatives remaining. We have also learned that the spill is some four times greater than BP led the US Government to believe, making it the largest oil spill in history. Meanwhile, Republicans (or should we call them “BPublicans”) and Tea-Baggers continue to clamor for less corporate regulation.

THIS JUST IN: The racist State of Arizona has elected to by-pass its own Attorney General to defend the state against lawsuits filed in opposition to the state’s new racial profiling immigration law. Instead, the state will hire costly outside private counsel because the state legislature and Governor Jan Brewer have a “lack of confidence in the Attorney General’s willingness to vigorously defend” When your state’s very own Attorney General feels a law is unconstitutional, you’ve got a problem. Now in addition to all the revenue lost as the result of the increasing boycott of all things Arizonan, the state’s taxpayers will be forced to spend even more money on outside private counsel.

BREAKING NEWS: This week’s episode of “Give ‘Em Enough Rope And They Are Sure To Hang Themselves” features Kentucky Republican Senate candidate Rand Paul. The Sarah Palin endorsed candidate that told us last week that he believes that private business should once again be allowed to racially  discriminate, now tells us that he wants so called “anchor babies” (children born in the US with parents not legally in the country) to be stripped of their US citizenship and deported. Problem is, the US Constitution says, “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.” Rand Paul, we hardly knew ye.

THIS JUST IN: Progressive liberals have another good chance to defeat an incumbent DINO. Arkansas Lt. Gov. Bill Halter is outpacing incumbent Blanche Lincoln in raising funds for the Democratic Party run-off election for the Arkansas US Senate seat. Lincoln you may recall, tends to vote against progressive causes and with the Republicans far too frequently. Please donate what you can to Bill Halter in an effort to put a true progressive in office.

BREAKING NEWS: Seems this whole Obama/Sestak thing is just a whole lot of nothing. That is of course, so long as you are a Ronald Reagan admirer. Take a look at this little piece from the PA in 1981,

Sen. S.I. Hayakawa on Wednesday spurned a Reagan administration suggestion that if he drops out of the crowded Republican Senate primary race in California, President Reagan would find him a job.

How will the Republicans react to the fact that the almighty Reagan seems to have been involved in the same sort of rough and tumble world of politics  as was Obama?

THIS JUST IN: Sarah Palin hired Bob the Builder to erect spite fence.

BREAKING NEWS: This week’s episode of “How Low Can You Go” features Fox News’ very own village idiot, Glenn Beck. On his radio show, Beck alleged that Barack Obama’s 11 year old daughter, Malia was uneducated. Then while mocking the child’s voice, he asked the President, “Daddy, why do you hate black people”! Let’s see what Beck has to say the next time someone mentions one of Sarah Palin’s children.

UNDONE

(sung to The Guess Who song “Undone”)

Beck’s come undone
He didn’t know what he was headed for
And by the time that Fox shows him the door
It’s much too late

Beck’s come undone
He’s either drinking or he’s getting high
And now his sponsors have gone bye-bye
That is Glenn’s fate

It’s too late
Beck’s gone too far
He’s all but done
Beck’s come undone
Avoids the truth while he shouts out his lies
Now he has to realize
Redemption’s too late

Beck’s come undone
He’s like a little mouse that tries to roar
A TV host that most of us abhor
A victim of his fate

It’s too late
Beck’s no Bill Maher
He is no fun
Beck’s come undone

Too many branches, but not enough Christmas lights
Too many falsehoods and not enough truth
Too many people with too many eyes to see
Too many lies to tell, but not in prime-time

It’s too late
He’s over par
(that was a pun)
Beck’s come undone
(Doe-doe-doe-doe-doe-doe- un doe-doe-doe un doe-doe-doe)
(Doe-doe-doe-doe-doe un doe-doe-doe doe-doe-doe)
(Doe doe-doe-doe doe doe-doe-doe doe doe)

(musical interlude)

It’s too late
Feathered and tarred
He’s dazed and stunned
Beck’s come undone
He didn’t know what he was headed for
And now he’s much worse than the day before
It is too late

Beck’s come undone
He’s like a fountain spewing out just lies
And sometimes he just sits there and cries
Glenn Beck’s character traits

It’s too late
Beck’s gone too far
He’s a no-one
Beck’s come undone
(No no-no-no-no-no-no)
(Doe doe doe-doe)

Arizona Gets Becked By Boycotters

Just as Glenn Beck’s racist comments resulted in a massive advertiser boycott of his Fox News program to the extent that the show has virtually no sponsors, The State of Arizona is now facing a boycott of its own. In addition to the five pending lawsuits against the state’s recently enacted racial profiling law which may, on their own, prevent the law from ever being utilized, many municipalities have officially enacted boycotts against Arizona. This ever growing list of cities has each passed ordinances which prohibit city employees from traveling to Arizona and the municipalities have also prohibited any city contracts with Arizona businesses. Here is the list of boycotting cities to date:

-Seattle, Washington
-El Paso, Texas
-Austin, Texas
-Boston, Massachusetts
-St. Paul, Minnesota
-Boulder, Colorado
-San Diego, California
-West Hollywood, California
-San Francisco, California
-Los Angeles, California
-Oakland, California

Keep up the good work, fair cities!

ARIZONA

(sung to the Mark Lindsay song “Arizona”)

I sure do long for San Francisco
This Arizona day
They just pulled over ol’ Pedro and Cisco
Racism has its way
Police don’t believe in brotherhood or neighborhood
If your skin is brown, you’re prey
And Jan Brewer we all laugh at her
As she initiates the neo-Nazi ways

Arizona – take off your racist shades
Arizona – have another look at the world
My, my
Arizona – don’t follow John McCain
Arizona – hey, put down that Kool-Aid

Mmmm try as you might, you’ll never solve your problems by deporting a child
Coat them in red paint as you place them in shackled restraints
Arizona – you’ve made the evening news
Arizona – You’ll have pure white highways

Lock them both up, Pedro and Cisco
Make them sit there and wait
As the wheels of justice turn so slow
Just stare at them with hate
And you can tell them that brotherhood and neighborhood
Is the Arizonan way
But you and they know it’s an untrue fable
To justify locking them away

Arizona – now you resemble Hades
Arizona – you’ll soon be cut off from the world
My, my
Arizona – don’t follow John McCain
Arizona – wake up and use your brain

Hey, Arizona – discard your racist views
Arizona – you’ll soon be cut off from the world
My, my
Arizona – next will it be the Jews?
Arizona – wake up and use your brain

Come on, hey, Arizona – cast off your racist ways.

Sunday Mid-Morning Coffee (or Tea) – 35

Just a few noteworthy news satellites that have been careening around the blogosphere this week.

BREAKING NEWS:  This week’s episode of “Why Am I Not Surprised?” features Arizona state senator Russell Pearce who authored his state’s newly enacted racist immigrant law. Crooks and Liars has revealed that Senator Pearce is rather chummy with a guy named J.T. Ready, who also happens to be one of Arizona’s leading neo-Nazis. “May I see your papers, please?”

THIS JUST IN:  This week’s episode of “Rush To Judgment” features who else but Rush Limbaugh. Media Matters reports, “With a controversial immigration bill signed into law in Arizona and President Obama’s call ‘to make sure that the young people, African-Americans, Latinos, and women who powered our victory in 2008 stand together once again,’ it was little wonder that Rush would have a particularly racially charged show today (April 26th). Limbaugh pointed out that Obama didn’t specifically call on Democrats to ‘reconnect with white people’ and took off from there. Discussing the campaign video, Rush said, ‘This is the regime at its racist best,’ and that Obama ‘has purposely come to divide people” on racial lines’.”

BREAKING NEWS:  This week’s episode of “Boy, Do I Hope She Is Right” features Democratic Party candidate Tarryl Clark who is running against moonbat-crazy Republican Michele Bachmann for the US Senate. Of Bachmann, Clark said, “She’ll still be on Fox News after I defeat her”. Let’s hope so.

THIS JUST IN: In a rare weekly twofer, this week’s episode of “Welcome To The Alternative Universe”  also features right wing radio comedian, Rush Limbaugh. Limbaugh’s understanding of the world which surrounds him is so distorted that this week he announced that the oil spill catastrophe in the Gulf was actually the fault of environmentalists and the Obama Administration. Yes, you read that correctly. He claimed that the initial explosion and fire at the rig was caused by explosives planted by environmentalists and then he blamed the resulting environmentally disastrous effects upon the federal government’s failure to step in sooner with remediation methods. Of course Limbaugh laid no blame upon the foreign BP corporation for failing to safeguard its own rig from malfunction, for downplaying the significance of its massive malfunction for nearly a week and for balking at assuming the costs of remediation. Rush Limbaugh is simply a propagandist buffoon.

BREAKING NEWS:  This week’s episode of “Boycott For Change” features the thousands upon thousands of American citizens that have elected to boycott the State of Arizona so long as its recently enacted racial profiling inspired anti immigrant law remains in effect. Conventions, hotel bookings and vacations galore to Arizona have been canceled or moved to other states in the last week by socially conscious Americans who can smell a stink when it stinks. Bravo!

THIS JUST IN:  Here is a little poem about Sarah Palin. Remember when “shrill baby, shrill” proclaimed on her “hill baby, hill” that we should “drill baby, drill” with no worry of “spill baby, baby spill”?

BREAKING NEWS:  This week’s episode of “Another One Bites the Dust” features Florida Governor Charlie Crist. As the result of of poor polling numbers against conservative Republican challenger Marco “Polo” Rubio, the moderate Republican Crist has elected to ditch the G.O.P. and run as an Independent ala Joe “Say It Ain’t So” Lieberman. The Republican herd is thinning by natural selection.

THIS JUST IN:  This week’s episode of “I couldn’t Have Said It Better Myself” features  Bill Maher who this week twittered, “Every asshole who ever chanted ‘Drill Baby Drill’ should have to report to the Gulf Coast today for cleanup duty”.

BREAKING NEWS:  In a very rare threepeat, this week’s episode of ” The Next Time You Say Something, Try To Have A Point” features who else but Rush Limbaugh. In response to former President Bill Clinton saying “right-wing, radio talk-show hosts” kept people in “white heat” nearly 15 years ago before the deadly Oklahoma City bombing, and warning against similar anger in the age of Obama, Limbaugh says,  the Clinton and the Obama “regime” are the ones that have “set the stage for violence.” he also says,”Bill Clinton … just gave the kooks out there an excuse to be violent. He just offered them an opportunity to be violent.” Huh? Has Limbaugh now modeled his ability to reason on that of Sarah Palin?

By the way Rush, when is your big move to Costa Rica?

In honor of Rush Limbaugh’s triple inclusion in today’s blog post it seems appropriate to feature him in today’s song parody. Please remember to click on the song link below to familiarize yourselves with the tune and to have more fun singing along with today’s parody.

TALKING TURD

(sung to the Carly Simon/James Taylor song “Mockingbird”)

Talk (yeah) ing (yeah) turd (yeah)
Yeah (yeah)
Talking Turd

Now, everybody sure has heard
Rush Limbaugh the big fat talking turd
That loudmouth talking turd is king
Of all those racists in the right-wing
But those in the right-wing front line
Are busy planning for their next hate crime
And that’s why I keep on tellin’ everybody
Say yeah, yeah whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, oh

Hear me now and understand
Rush lives only to hate and malign
And if ratings decline someday
Limbaugh will spread hate in another way
And if that other way makes dough
He’ll ride with the tide and go with the flow
And that’s why I keep on shoutin’ in your ear
Say yeah, yeah whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, oh

(musical interlude)

Now, everyone should doubt his word
Rush Limbaugh is just a talking turd
And when that talking turd does sing
We can tell he’s just a ding-a-ling
And when that ding-a-ling just whines
Yes, Republicans will still think he shines
And there’s a reason why I keep on tellin’ everybody
Say yeah, yeah no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no

Listen now and understand
Rush Limbaugh surely has lost his mind
And though he drugged his mind away
The right-wing nuts still listen everyday
Like Sarah Palin and that Plumber, Joe
He’s a dead fish that just “goes with the flow”
And that’s the reason why he keeps on spreadin’ all that fear
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, now, now, baby

Razing Arizona

John McCain receives a history lesson.

Here at Lynnrockets’ Blast-Off, we do not feel the need to expound any more on the ill-conceived new Arizona state immigration law which encourages racial profiling and reduces all legal residents and citizens with “brown” skin to second class status as the result of having to carry their “papers” at all times. The comparisons to another governmental entity that did the same thing are obvious.

Consequently, we will simply comment by means of lyric. Please enjoy.
