Bill Maher Revives "Blacktracking" for the Bergdhalzi TeaNuts

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Blacktrack

 

Ponder this particular panel on Friday night's Real Time with the inimitable Bill Maher ...

Nicole Wallace, Bush The Dumber shill and (terrifyingly regular) bleating head on Schmoe Scarborough's morning roundtable of idiocy. A mediocre conservative National Review 'comic' whose name happily escaped. Baltimore's genius John Waters as the pop creative guest -- and Anthony Dicque Picque Weiner. In full NYC fighting mode.

We might just have to start loving us some Weiner again if he keeps decimating fools like Wallace.

The opening segment guest set the tone, it was a liberal wet dream. Holy Roller and Defender of Straight Families, Ralph Reed, actually had the stones to take on America's Best Atheist. I suspect Reed limped off stage afterwards for scrotum ice and a shot of moonshine before sprinting back to LAX.

When Reed tried to assign Christian religion value, boldly Bogarting “over half of the social capital” in the world.

Maher drawled, “Ralph, I could list so many things that are bad that religion has been responsible for: most wars, the Crusades, burning witches at the stake, 9/11–I could go on.”

Reed did the obligatory Chrrrrristian Charity Fallback Position, “Homeless shelters–90% of which are connected with a house of worship, many charities … " [yada yada yada] Maher then dropped the coup de grace: “Of course, but you can do those things without believing in magic. And people do.”
Enjoy for yourself.

On the Infamous Five Bearded Men that hypocrisy dispenser John McCain now fears more than Sarah Palin's mouth, Maher was in rare form.

On Open Carry, Maher quotably opined that the deadly Strap On penis-enhancers should stay out of stores and restaurants ... after all,  he doesn't go around randomly blowing bong hits at innocent diners at the Olive Garden. [Though Nicole Wallace was clearly in deep need.]

He skewered the GunNuttery as only Maher can. Bravo to Bill Maher for taking them on, how are we supposed to know that a guy with a military-style strap-on at Target isn't there to spray bullets in the Garden and Patio section?!

“You guys aren’t just firearm enthusiasts, you’re ammosexuals. And before you try and deny that you have some sort of unnatural romantic relationship with your gun, consider this: You’re taking it out to dinner. Because it completes you. Get a room.”

Maher Rules. Praise Jeebus he plays for our team.

Thanksgiving 2013: A political comic's list of thank-yous

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Today’s guest post by the one, the only, Will Durst:

THANKSGIVING 2013

Ahh. Thanksgiving. Best Holiday Ever! Love it all. The fact that a national holiday falls not on a Monday but a Thursday. How wacky is that? A regular Thursday in dead solid center fall. Where the weather could be 80 and sunny or 20 and snowing. Or, in certain parts of the Midwest, both.

Love the fact that its all about food, family, friends and football. 4 of the 5 Fs. Remain seriously amused by the winking obsessive conspiracy that binds an entire nation together concerning the specifics of the ritual burning of a large flightless bird. Free range. Brine. Air chill. To stuff or not to stuff. Seriously, is that the question?

You’d have to be a third stage tertiary Grinch not to love a parade featuring 80-foot helium filled balloons. Snoopy bouncing off a light pole. Ending with the season’s first appearance of the corpulent bearded one in the scarlet suit.

Don’t forget the silly creeping madness of Black Friday, which now begins early Thursday and threatens to encompass the entire week. People camping out for days. To save, what… six bucks? But for those tented hours, they are adventurous pioneers. Marvel Super Consumers.

And love the way that though this pageant of greed and gluttony lasts 4 whole days, when all is said and done, even amidst the drunken family brawling, sometimes moments for reflection can still be found. And you can bet that this round- headed political comic has much to be thankful for. Among them being:

--The 113th Congress, which has the unique ability to make hysterical lunacy seem so ordinary.
--Barack Obama for finally making the Presidency mock-worthy again.
--Sarah Palin who refuses to shut up no matter how tightly irrelevancy embraces her.
--Vice President Joe Biden for gaining immeasurable respect just by shutting up.
--The Cheney family who apparently feel about each other the same way the rest of us do.
--Ted Cruz for not only grabbing the national right- wing nut job baton from Michele Bachmann but waving it high.
--Pope Benedict for his inability to hide a scowl whenever Pope Francis does… anything.
--Chris Christie for so generously providing such a large target rich environment.
--The Tea Party for waving their arms in the air like they just don’t care.
--Alec Baldwin for truly embodying the phrase… “he who lives by the sword, dies swallowing the sword.”
--Mitt Romney for disappearing so completely, we’re left to wonder if he really ever existed at all.
--John Boehner, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and Mitch McConnell for their strict adherence to the musical advice, “don’t go changing.”
--ObamaCare because who can’t appreciate a website rollout that “could have gone smoother.” An anvil studded with titanium spikes could have rolled smoother.
--Walter White for altering the calculus of what it means to go out on your own terms.
--The NRA and the NSA for just being themselves.
--Anthony Weiner for his series of continuing comebacks. May he experience many more.
--Rob Ford for proving that California is not the source of all political wackiness in the world.
--The GOP, waging an internal war for it’s very soul. GOP Soul. Short book. Put it on the shelf right next to Barack Obama Leadership Skills. Paula Deen at the Apollo.
--Vladimir Putin for proving that Toronto is not the source of all political wackiness in the world.

VIDEO: Weiner v. Hannity aka Baby v. Infant

kids fighting

Anthony Weiner, if you didn't want to be on Fox, then you shouldn't have accepted their eleventy-third offer. And if you've been even semi-conscious for the past decade and had some idea of the lunacy you'd be up against, then maybe you'd have realized what a colossal waste of time this was.

Seriously, when Sean Hannity spends a good part of the first four minutes of an eight minute segment asking if the rumors are true that Weiner "hates me," what's the point?

And when Weiner asks, "What am I, a potted plant?" then it doesn't take a mental giant to see that the interview is going straight downhill from there...

...including the part where Hannity deluded himself into thinking he had the upper hand by taunting:

"You're auditioning for MSNBC. You want Chris Matthews job! I can tell! You want to ask the questions! You wanna be Chris Matthews! You never shut up like Chris Matthews, either!"

neener nanner tv

To which Weiner retorted as any self-respecting toddler would:

"YOU always have patsies on!... Fox apparently has much lower standards!"

That little back and forth took up most of the final four minutes.

Moral of the story: Don't go on Fox unless you're prepared to be insulted, baited, and dismissed as nothing more than a novelty act. And if you still insist on crossing onto Hannity's turf, then don't stoop to his infantile behavior.

We're long overdue for our quarterly fundraiser, mainly because we are so reluctant to have our hands out, but, as Nickelodeon used to say, "A kid's gotta do what a kid's gotta do."

So if you are able, if you are so inclined, please donate. I'm currently using a just barely hanging on 10 y/o CRT monitor that is about to keel over. Gotta have the monitor to get the posts up! Site maintenance, and every day expenses add up and we can't do this without your help.

Thank you ahead of time for your consistent kindness and generosity. Without you, there would be no us.

PhotOH! Dep't. of Class Acts: Anthony Weiner ends campaign (and career) by flipping off reporter

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

stay classy

anthony weiner flips off reporterLink

Yesterday I posted a video of the most cringe-worthy interview in recent memory. That bizarre interview was conducted by Lawrence O'Donnell who managed to make his subject, Anthony Weiner, seem almost sympathetic.

Almost.

It was the perfect cap to an increasingly embarrassing series of increasingly creepy examples of Weiner's increasingly bizarre behavior.

Or so I thought. Leave it to Gracious Anthony to utterly demolish an already classless image.

Via The Hill:

Former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) ended his campaign for New York City mayor by giving a reporter the middle finger through his car window Tuesday night.

Weiner was caught on camera gesturing at local NBC reporter Shimon Prokupecz, who had been covering the candidate’s primary Election Day watch party.

make it stop smaller

Lawrence O'Donnell:

Anthony, I think there is something wrong with you.

And that concludes another in-depth interview with Anthony Weiner.

Did you see The Last Word last night? If not, please... Watch. The. Video.

That had to be the most worthless excuse for a conversation I've ever seen on a cable Tee Vee "news" show, with the exception of any given Sarah Palin Moment, of course. It had no value whatsoever, unless you consider humiliation a plus.

When I heard Lawrence repeatedly tease his Anthony Weiner segment, all I could ask was, "Why? Why was he invited on? He has no chance to win the mayoral race, he's a laughingstock, and nobody cares."

No, seriously, nobody cares.

I watch The Last Word nearly every night, and there are peaks and valleys, as there are on every show, but this particular segment... Seriously?

Pseudo, unintentionally comedic psychobabble trying to mimic analysis, followed by endless, self-indulgent rants intended to get ratings but accomplishing literally nothing else...

Seriously?

Not so much as allowing Weiner to answer a question? No, check that. Not so much as posing a question...

Seriously??

Interminable accusations, smackdown after smackdown, out and out bullying...

Seriously??

Lawrence sounded insane and Weiner sounded like an asshole. Or vice versa. Or both. Yet I somehow found myself rooting for Weiner. Now that's an accomplishment.

And after enduring seven minutes of meaningless, unproductive badgering, I never did find out who Weiner was lobbying for. That is, if he ever was a lobbyist.

Here's the superfluous, nearly as cringe-worthy online sequel that for some unknown reason, Weiner agreed to partake in. If you ignore it, I applaud you:

Weiner:

Bigger guys than you have tried to knock me down.

O'Donnell:

The ever-delusional Anthony Weiner.
