marlboro man

Bill O'Reilly didn't wanna be a cowboy! But he was (allegedly) approached to be one, sort of. He claims he could have been a rough, tough, rugged, cigarette-smoking, cancer-peddling Marlboro Man.

Bill O'Reilly:

"While I was covering the News in Denver, I was approached by a modeling agency to be the Marlboro guy dressed as a cowboy! I'm from Long Island...

But smoking marijuana is quite the opposite. That’s on the rise, as pot use is considered cool in many circles, and above all it is political correct."

Who's kidding whom here? O'Reilly couldn't have been a Marlboro Man even if he wanted to. No cowboy hat would have ever fit over that big ego head of his.

Written by guest contributor, "hardybear" of the wonderful Free Range Talk site:

How to win back the liberal Liberal amorè of  '08 and  properly bitch-slap the Regressive Asshattery --- deliver one fell swoop of satire from Thirty Rock. Just picture it. A confident, relaxed Barack Obama takes the mic and croons a few bars of " I'm-m-m ... so fed up with you … killin' every damn thing the country needs me to do … it ain't nothin' but Boo-Hoo-Hoo … and not just from Bar-fly Bo(eh)ner ...

And is then joined by the dramatically back-lit, unprecedented musical host Fantasy Gaggle of Gaga, Bono, The Boss, Beyoncè,  Aretha, The (remaining) Beatles, Page & Plant, Jagger & Richards,  Madonna and Mister Wonder.

Web-snark gem 'Between Two Ferns' was a particular favorite of hipster Malia Obama, First Teen ... so when her Dad caved and delighted his daughters by being gamely swatted around by Zach Galifanekis, that whole 'Mom jeans' idiocy got returned to sender in A-lass-ka.

Cue Fvx News. Hair ablaze, the conservative punditry and media minions sang a scolding Greek chorus of 'The Dignity of the Office".  Are you effing kidding The Free World? You want to see undignified?  -- here you go --

The president is going to the wall to get the message to we hard-headed People that healthcare insurance reform IS underway and there's a REAL deadline at the end of this month to enroll via the ACA. Maybe Republicans can spend their days blocking unemployment insurance and debating the degree of Lindsey Graham's ambiguous gay-hood, but President Dude has a day job!

Enjoy Lizz Winstead et al on Up with Steve Kornacki  and their comedic convo on the topic.

This just in from Variety Thursday: President Obama Defends Doing Funny or Die’s ‘Between Two Ferns’

ESPN Radio’s Colin Cowherd on Thursday asked Obama about criticism that Abraham Lincoln would not have stooped to such humor. Obama replied that “if you read back on Lincoln, he loved telling the occasional bawdy joke and being out among regular folk.” He added that “one of the hardest things about being president is being in this bubble that is artificial and unless you make a conscious effort, you start sounding like some Washington stiff.”

The Grumpy Old Geezer Party and middle-schooler Lipton Brigade canonized Über-Con Ron Ron,  a B movie actor who did standup with (genuine talent) Bob Hope -- but damn and deride a man of principle going to the mat of self-embarrassment as a Dad and a leader. One who actually gives a phuque about The People to reach out to the generation that's literally our future. 

Keep right on that flight plan, Regressive Republicans of Yore. Your bloated hypocritical underbelly is about as attractive to the future Makers as the thought of reverting to dial-up.

A Birthday Gift For Our Late Best Friend, Paddy

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

paddy laughing

Today would have been our beloved Paddy's birthday. Since her untimely passing about two weeks ago, life has changed for all of us over here at The Political Carnival.

One thing I believe is that Paddy would have loved to celebrate this occasion. She loved life and birthdays are supposed to be fun. So in my personal way, and in honor of this being her day, I found a video that I think she'd have loved and demanded we share with all of our readers. It skewers so much of what's going on with politics today. And I KNOW that anything that shows up bully Bill O'Reilly for what he really is, would be something Paddy would be jumping up and down saying we had to put up there.

So here it is. A birthday present for Paddy from all of us here at TPC. She'd consider it a pleasure to give all of you an entertaining gift to help her celebrate. So, as you watch this, please remember the spirit of the woman who gave her all for this site.

Thanks to the Gregory Brothers, we have another installment of Songify -- the musical fantasm of song, news and snark.

the Gregory Brothers 2

From YouTube:

Congresswoman Jackie Speier debates diplomatic spending with Nice Peter & Kassem G while a variety of pundits & politicians bemoan the biggest dangers of 2014 - zoo closures, marijuana legalization, and texting.

Happy Birthday sweet Angel.

Laffy Note: Thank you David, this was perfect. Just perfect. Paddy would have loved it, and there is nothing left to add except for my deepest wishes that she could have been here to share her birthday with us. I-- we-- miss her beyond words, we ache inside, we will always love and remember her, and we will always celebrate her life and legacy on this day and every day.

i love you so much
