Los Regressive Righties Want to Replace Obama with Putin or P.M. Cameron

Share

BumperStickerw234h202

In a pre-pimp for his own show Fox News Sunday, the disappointing Chris Wallace had a remarkably large heap of steaming Obama Blame to shovel in on Fox and Friends Weekend.

The Curvy Couch of Ick at Fox Noise urged him on and then proceeded to launch into their own non-truthiness and spin. Quelle surpreeze.

Video below, there's time to make a Bloody Mary - you're gonna' need it. We won't catch Wallace's own show until 2 p.m. EST, so watch this space. [As Maddow and GottaLaff say when wisely tipping us off.]

From Fox online, don your Wellies, further bloviation about both Iraq and the hallucinated lack of Feck. [Those feckers.]

The contrast between Friday’s press conference in London by British Prime Minister David Cameron and Thursday’s White House remarks by President Obama could not have been starker.

Mr. Cameron delivered a robust assessment of the scale of the Islamist threat to Great Britain and to the free world.

Well you know who was born swimming in feck … B Actor/Reagan and Dumbass DubDub-Dubbuyuh, that's who.

And how did that pair turn out for all of us normal folks? The poverty stricken and disappearing middle class sure need to be looked out by someone … these three excepted. (Nothing against Cameron, but he seems to have two full hands.

And I bet each had a section of their wardrobes dedicated to pristine tan summer wear.

Now the Rightie Putin love is almost implausible, but defying the plausible is part of their Fvx Platinum Denial Program.

Perhaps half-Governor Sarah Palin does spend a lot of time on her porch, cleaning long-guns in pumps.

Ronan Farrow on Sunday morning: 'How do you solve a problem like Putin?' Yes, out loud, and caught by TPC writer Hardybear!

Our wonderful friend Lauren Mayer ('Psychomom') then turned 'How do you solve a problem like Putin?' into the wonderful satirical song it was destined to be. Thanks, Lauren!

The despotic, shirtless tyrant is more unpredictable than a musical theatre character!

Two Wrongs Don't Make a Right

'He calls me neshama, I call him habibi. Love doesn't speak the language of occupation #JewsAndArabsRefuseToBeEnemies,'
Sulome Anderson tweeted.

If only the so-called leaders could be taken out of the equation, the people of the world might actually have a shot at world peace!

But only a shot because there are still citizens throughout the world who insist on placing all of the blame for this mess on one side or the other. As an American atheist of Jewish descent, I still consider myself a Jew - with all the history to comes with that heritage.

I have family members who escaped the concentration camps. That history doesn't go away because the powers that be in Israel seem to have forgotten their persecution. I sympathize with the Palestinian people who have no homeland and live in the open-air prison that is Gaza.

I can see both sides of the story, and know that both sides are right in some respects and wrong in many others.

But when a long-time listener and supporter of this program writes in the chat room "All Jews in Israel are Nazis," we have an even bigger problem than I realized. (Said listener left the chat room in a huff and canceled his monthly donation to the show. If you'd like to make up for the shortfall, your support is needed.)

Thank goodness I was able to read a sensible take on the situation with a sensible solution over at Slate: William Saletan's "How To Save Gaza and Keep Israel and Hamas from Fighting the Next War." I already emailed and invited him on the show tomorrow. I hope he accepts.

And thank goodness for the people who started the #JewsAndArabsRefuseToBeEnemies campaign.

Let me add myself and Keith Ellison to the mix who did the Jew/Muslim fist bump at Netroots Nation and shared a hug too!

Today on the show, Susie Madrak of Crooks & Liars joined in to show that even like-minded people can disagree, and do with without being assholes.

And Mario Piscatella, managing editor of Blue Nation Review, guested to tell us about that great new news website, the assault on premium subsidies in the Affordable Care Act by two Republican judges and more.. until a Florida lightning strike nearby knocked me off the air.

So, we'll be back tomorrow with another show... Amy Simon on Seneca Falls, Stephen Goldstein with another "No More Bullshit Minute" and whatever else the day throws our way... radio or not!
