It Won't Be the Happiest Place on Earth if Glenn Beck Goes Disney

This is a total WTFBBQ(??!!??) situation.

Glenn Beck is full of (disgusting) plans for this great, patriotic, white, exceptional nation, and this time he's glommed onto Walt Disney. And adopted a propensity for the taste of 'Christian blood'.

I told you it was stamped and verified WTFBBQ.

Maybe he's all afternoon delight about the foul aroma of odeur of impeachment in the air, is Beck. He's clearly heading towards Shock Jock Black Belt qualification.

Catch this bit of inanity from Fvx Noise.

Glenn Beck appeared on CNN’s Reliable Sources for the second week in a row (why) and told host Brian Stelter that he was modeling himself less after Edward R. Murrow and more after Walt Disney. He specified that this did not mean Beckland theme parks, but did mean … whatever this next bit says:

“Disney was an innovator on everything. We went to space because of Walt Disney. You know, Walt Disney brought his animator that did the Seven Dwarfs and said ‘I’ve got this Nazi scientist that I need you to meet, Wernher Von Braun.’ The year is 1954 or ’55. He said, ‘He thinks we can put a man in space. I want you to tell that story.’

“In 1955 just before he opens the park he starts his TV show, Disneyland, he has a special called ‘Man in Space.’ The story goes that Eisenhower called him up and said, ‘Walt, you son of a bitch, you did it. I’ve been trying to convince the people at the Pentagon. I don’t need that. You just convinced the American people.’ A world without Walt Disney, America without Walt Disney, not just the parks, is a very different place. He affected our culture in a positive way.”

Course, now it's not even been a week since Glenn Beck put a bib on and mowed through a short stack of pancakes … drizzled not with Aunt Jemina or Vermont's Maple Syrup … but with 'Christian blood'. After, Eeeeeew, check out the Beck asshattery of the month.

Dude been sneaking True Blood binge-watching in?? Very similar to last season's finale, just sayin'. Tom Cruz may have got the gig, but Beck can dream.

Steve King Is at It Again - This Time Goes Absolutely Apeshite on Immigrants #RANPaul

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

steve king worst person in the world

Infuriating, knicker twisting, deplorably inept, xenophobic, a Major Faux Pas Pas Pas …  is the Representative from Iowa, Steve King.

Have a horrified couple of YouTube - huge tip o' the hat to GottaLaff for the story spotting and video linkage. [Laffy Note: Check out Rand Paul making a quick exit. Hence the hashtag... #RANPaul. More on this in Nicole Sandler's post and podcast later.]

Okoboji, Iowa (CNN) – Republican Rep. Steve King was confronted Monday night at his own fundraiser by an undocumented immigrant and activist who argued with the Iowa congressman over his stance on immigration.

Erika Andiola, who’s involved with the Arizona DREAM Act Coalition, mostly took issue with King’s vote last week to curb the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that allows certain young people - who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children - to delay deportation.

The very existence of flamethrowers proves that some time, somewhere, someone said to themselves, “You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I’m just not close enough to get the job done.”
– George Carlin

And on CNN and Youtubes Vids, below, you get a TMI closeup of King's execrable exploits.

steve-King-Of-Kings-210x300

For a refresher on past Steve King level excoriating, a 2013 high for him on the satanic Amnesty attacks.

I think we absolutely crown him … King of the GOP.Tea Asshattery … and I literally mean the more modern 'crowning the Dude".  A marble one ought to do -- the desperately needed for Iowa and America herself -- hat trick.

Bill Kristol Says 'Hogwash' To Any Iraq War Hawk Apology Possibilities

Bill Kristol, fresh from his Morning Joe pummeling by MSNBC pundit John Heilemann link here , spent a good deal of time last week fielding questions about his doubling down on the decision to go into Iraq.

And his call to action that slammed liberal peaceniks as lacking feck. Feck is becoming highly overrated among the BushCo NeoCon Senior Set.

Erin Burnett got a shot at Kristol over at CNN, and he (to our delight) included that prized intellectual conservative descriptive: 'Hogwash!'

She had a provocative Tweet from Senate leader Harry Reid to tweak Kristol's self-elevated nose with.

Have a gander.


"I'm not apologizing for something that I think was not wrong," Kristol opined firmly. "The war to remove Saddam was the right thing and necessary thing to do."

"Apologies would be in order for the neoconservatives who banged the war drums so disastrously, Bill," swiftly came from a neighboring Carl Bernstein, thank you Carl.

"Hogwash!" Kristol bellowed!

The Old White Guys UnCompassionate Conservative Club, headed by Cheney or Kristol or whomever is sick enough to want that chair, is clearly alive and disturbed. And increasingly loud and given to public hissy fits.

On MSNBC's Hardball Monday evening, Chris Matthews gave the Axis of Feeble his own unique shout-out. [Truly, pardon the quiet shouting, but Tweety means so well.]

Bring on 2014!

Paul Bremer Gets Reamed A New A**hole By Erin Burnett

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Burnett Bremer

Sometimes watching someone squirm makes us feel uncomfortable. But when they bring it on themselves, not so much. CNN's Erin Burnett had Iraq Warlord and Bush confident and liar-in-chief Paul Bremer on her show last night. He didn't last long. A bob, a weave and then Burnett landed blow after blow against this fraud masquerading as a man. Without any doubt, he's lucky Obama didn't prosecute him for war crimes and treason against this country. And how does he repay this generosity? He blames Obama for what he (Bremer) left behind.

If you want to see the Thrilla in Vanilla, The Battle of the B's, or The Bremer's Bash, here you go-- front row seats. Better put on some plastic clothing. Erin draws blood early. Watch the cut over Bremer's eye when Erin quickly attacks on this CNN clip:

"People, a lot of people are watching you right now and they're —they're hearing you give your ideas of what to do. And they're saying, 'but aren't you the guy who got us in this mess?'"

"Look, you're the guy who ran Iraq for George W. Bush."

Hillary Clinton Aces CNN and Fox "News" - Morning Joe: Not So Fast

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

benghazimeme
Whether you love or hate Hillary Rodham Clinton, and the term 'polarizing figure' may have had her iconic profile next to it in our collective political dictionary for over two decades … you have to cheer her as a non Neo-Con for trouncing the Asshat Nation at Fux Fantasy Central Fox News Channel.

Rather than inflict Fox video upon you, allow this disappointed Teabagger Tweet to inform you. To catch up on all the footage of the CNN and Fux interviews however, click this link to catch the handy summary video lineup over at Deadline.


The Benghazi culprit apprehension timing was so fortuitous it was of course a Conspiracy Thesis before actual tea-time yesterday. Everyone from Limpbaugh to eager Lipton Brigadiers tittered and finger-pointed and generally made even larger fools of their rabid Silly Season Selves.

As fellow Morning Schmoe addicts [shamleless one, here, still looking for that Twelve Step Program but in the meantime blogging about the idiots is sanity-saving, so thanks to m'cohorts out there] would have anticipated, Scarborough wasn't content to let HRC have a good ten minutes.

Scarborough even got on the 'suspicious timing' bandwagon, must have gotten a call from Bill Kristol with the talking points at 3:00 a.m. - and went on a rant about "how long it took to get the guy". [As opposed to BushCo's speedy successes.]

embarrassed

And Mika -- have ya' noticed (??) -- has a slight distaste for the former First Lady, Senator from New York and Secretary of State … whether it has anything or not to do with Papa Zbig not being in the Clinton White House; do feel free to speculate away with me. It's way too early and waaaay too obvious.

A couple shots about how 'poorly the book tour is going' were fired across the M.J. Bow before 6:02. P-pow. P-pow. By 6:03 Mika had made a sly reference to how HRC would have to answer to questions about Putin. Because Mika has already launched and begun tearing down her campaign.

Time for the good Orvis Waders, and Method™'s Antibacterial Troll Repellent, we're going in. First block.

The real action came when Nicole Wallace jumped on gleefully to offer her BushCo take on it all. Such a joy. [I need several size 7 1/2's lined up to hurl.] Happily Sam Stein was on for a voice of sanity.

Don't you just resign Mika to Madeleine Albright's Special Level of Hell at least twice a morning?!? Which is sad, she could be using that seat and platform for good. Not pseudo-modeling and mugging for the camera.

Nicole Wallace is no slouch at skewering HRC, either. She is headed for Peggy Noonan territory, that one. Just a tad of Clinton Derangement Syndrome lingering there.

Politics truly is a Carnival.

CNN No Longer Trusted -- Taken Hostage By Gun Advocates

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

School Shooting

Wow, thanks to the hard work and investigative klugers at CNN, I feel much safer now. All parents should. They've added a new chapter to Rachel Maddow's "Debunction Junction."

It started when earlier this week there was a map put out by Everytown For Gun Safety that indicated the locations of school shootings since Sandy Hook. There was an amazing number-- 74. Holy gunpowder, Batman! Put up the Bat Beacon! Not bacon, beacon. School shootings have become an epidemic.

Raw Story:

“After Tuesday’s shooting at an Oregon high school, many media outlets, including CNN, reported that there have been 74 school shootings in the past 18 months,” said the column. “So on Wednesday, CNN took a closer look at the list, delving into the circumstances of each incident Everytown included.”

Fortunately CNN isn't a lemming. They don't just print the news because it's news. They're fair and balanced. They investigate for themselves. They let nothing get in the way of truth and facts. Look, they even dedicated six weeks, 24/7 on a missing Malaysian Airliner and didn't get one fact straight except that one about the plane going missing. So certainly, this news organization was going to get to the bottom of these school shootings.

The news network CNN reportedly bowed to pressure from gun advocates when it redefined what constitutes a “school shooting” and lowered its estimate of the number of attacks since the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut from 74 to 15.

CNN

Breathing easier? I am. Phew. It seems the other news outlets had inflated the number of school shootings by nearly 400%.

Oh, curious how this number got adjusted downward from 74 to a much "safer" 15 school shootings? It wasn't hard. Just change the definition of school shooting. Of the 74 incidents reported since Sandy Hook, all of them took place on a school campus. That was just too  general for CNN. After consulting with the NRA and other gun proponent groups, they revised their definition.

CNN said that the gun safety group should not include “personal arguments, accidents and alleged gang activities and drug deals” in its numbers, which would drop the number of school shootings from approximately one per week since Newtown to one every five weeks.

So if the argument is personal, an accident, or a gang member or drugs are involved, it's not a school shooting, even if it takes place on a school campus, during classes? Why not just lower the number and say it's only a school shooting if it takes place as a ritual sacrifice or animals must also be harmed in the crime? Bet the numbers would drop drastically with that definition. Maybe it would even be down to zero.

CNN is a fraud, as we've all come to see it in recent years. They've strayed from once reporting news to full time coverage of tabloid fare. The fact is school shootings are out of control. And you're no less dead if you were shot and killed by a gang member or drug user during your school day on the facility.

Hang your head in shame, CNN. You've taken the NRA poison. It won't be long now before you're considered Fox News light! Come to think of it, you already are.
