Fox News: Let's School The Lefties On Food Stamps

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Fox

Boy, when you want to tell a whopper of a tale, there's nobody better than the news writers over at Fox News. They can spin a simple getting a sliver in your finger into a conspiracy from the wood products industry along with the physicians and surgeons guild (if there really was one) to rampantly perform amputations to boost up the artificial limbs industry.

Face it, they never met a factual molehill they couldn't turn into a mountain. And there's no one better at pointing out these absurdities than Jon Stewart.

We all know that the recent, racial animus that our Republican House and Senate members have been espousing lately is well documented by their promotion department, aka Fox News. It's down with food stamps because it enables lazy Blacks (actually a majority or recipients are white) to sit home and eat well. Paul Ryan, of brown paper bag fame wants to eliminate school lunches altogether because we shouldn't be encouraging lazy urban (read minority) single parents not to look for jobs. And hey, what's with that awful extension of the long term unemployment bill the Senate voted on the other day? That's again so totally wrong. If the unmotivated, unemployed (in GOP talk, that's code for minorities) don't want to work, why should we reward them?

In response to The Daily Show's mocking of Fox New's biased and bigoted reporting, the Rupert Murdoch stooges chose to take on Jon Stewart and Comedy Central. They elected to "school" the comedian/satirist. Bad move, Fox. You had to know your outrageous 'response-to-the-response' was coming. And boy, did it ever. Stewart eviscerates Fox like he's dueling with an unarmed man. Watch:

Cheney's Big Bang Theory - 'The Military Hypocrisy Protocol'

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Cheney

Above is the cover for the upcoming book called, The Hypocrites Handbook. The author is the man who unintentionally makes me laugh more than anyone else, former Vice President, Dick Cheney.  Nixon may have been known as Tricky Dick, but Cheney, as Jon Stewart reveals, is just plain Dick. And if you've got a few minutes and missed this clip from last night, you'll kick yourself for not watching it now.

When's a Dick really a "dick?" When his name is Dick Cheney.

Hannity Threatens To Leave In A Huff, Or A Minute And A Huff

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

GoodbyeYellowWavingw351h244

When Jon Stewart's Daily Show takes on a pressing issue, they know how to do it right. They hold nothing back and, painful as it may be, give us the truth and nothing but.

Sean Hannity's threatened departure from New York is a perfect example of The Daily show laying all emotions bare, exposing raw nerves, revealing our true love, even if it's man-on-man love, for one of Fox New's most vaunted icons.

Please take a moment, let your senses savor Nathan Lane, the cast of The Jersey Boys and the many regular people on the streets of the Big Apple imploring Mr. Hannity to reconsider his threatened exile. Here's what this conservative giant among mankind means to them, the city of New York, and the rest of the world.

Chris Christie "goes out of his way to be a dick to other Republicans."

daily show chris christie bridge scandal

Check out this headline from the National Journal:

Conservatives on Chris Christie: Diva Getting What He Deserves

Rudy Guiliani's adviser: 'You're going to see conservatives returning the favor he gave them over the last year.'

oof

You ain't seen nothin' yet... hopefully:

Republican media strategist Rick Wilson, who worked on Rudy Giuliani's 2008 presidential campaign, argued that Christie "goes out of his way to be a dick to other Republicans" -- and will reap the payback if his fortunes start to head south.

oof 2

Wilson added the scandal threatens to tarnish Christie's luster with prospective donors because "they don't like scandals, and this makes him look like at best he lost control of his organization."

oof3

However, the National Journal also said that Christie "immediately [fired] deputy chief of staff Bridget Anne Kelly." Wrong. There was nothing "immediate" about it.

The article also reminds us that his base "has always been his New Jersey inner circle and Wall Street donors." 'Nuff said.

One clip that has been replayed a few times from Chris Christie's press conference was him expressing how *gasp!* "dismayed" he was by the "tone and attitude" of the emails. How about the intent, the content, and the end result? First responders were delayed, and a woman died. Not a word of dismay about that, eh Gov?

By the way, Governor "Heartbroken," many of us are "dismayed" by your "tone and attitude" on a regular basis.

P.S. Here’s Proof That Governor Christie Is Still Misleading The Public On Bridge Scandal. All our posts on why nobody ever should vote for Chris Christie again are here. Please scroll down.

And here's a bonus, because you've all been so patient during Paddy's and David's absence:
