The definition of irony

education / politics

It’s just sad when old men try to hold on to their relevance. Case in point, this part of an interview where John Cleese describes Sarah Palin as a parrot. You know, where somebody just reads lines they’re given, acting them out…sort of like…actors?

In addition to not noticing he was just describing himself, he bolsters his argument by telling us what Europeans would do. If she were President. If she were elected as the President of the United States by an opinion poll of Europeans.

His argument (‘this isn’t an argument’ puns aside) is like letting the foxes decide who guards the henhouse. Who cares what some actor from a hit show from 40 years ago thinks about some other country’s politics. Unless he’s a naturalized US citizen, in which case he’s a traitor to his homeland.

This particular video is burning up Digg, so you know it’s crap.

Lay the smack down, Barak!

education / politics

This could be the leader of the free world.

Yeah.

Pie.

This is why I’ve been doing Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson catch–phrases after every Barak Obama sound–bite over the last year. He’s awesome on the mic, and terrible in the ring. And he likes pie.

If you smell…what Barak…is cookin‘…[cue theme music, cut to commercial]

Wash for Obama

Or McCain. Whatever.

What I want to know is, aren’t these backwards?

Bailout. All I have on the Bailout.

economics / politics

Not much, actually.

This does beg the question, though: which bank is the safest right now? The Bank of Folgers (what with the all–aluminum security features, impervious to squirrels) or First National of Maxwell House (what with the weatherproof security that only plastic can provide). Call me old–fashioned, but I think I’m going with Chock Full o’ Nuts.

“Chock Full of Nuts”? They should call it “Chock Full o’My Investment Portfolio”!

How to get me to watch the debates

politics

You know we got these presidential debates coming on (maybe?). I, for one, am interested in whatever’s on any other station at that time. Maybe that’s just me, but I feel I speak for a large number of Americans when I say there needs to be something added to attain our interest:
Bipartisan velociraptors.
Otherwise, it’s just a bunch of politicians saying the same thing they say all the rest of the time, right?

Biden Picked as Obama’s VP

politics

It’s like Team Obama was just trying to tick off Red State Update (and it worked):

And yes, Joe Biden. He’s the VP for the Democrats. I figure you didn’t know that.

Non–gotcha on the Bush Doctrine

politics / security


Just a minute ago, I was thinking about Sarah Palin’s gaffe over the Bush Doctrine. I was thinking about it, because I couldn’t tell you what the Bush Doctrine was. And I was part of it (got the Bronze Star Medal to prove it).
Seeing her answer again just shows me what I was thinking: she was describing the Bush Doctrine. And so was Charlie Gibson. The non–gotcha comes because they weren’t describing the same Bush Doctrine.
As Joshua Treviño points out, there have been at least ten versions of the Bush Doctrine floating about. And that’s just the ones that haven’t been diluted through the AP. So, while it may look like Gotcha Time!™, it ain’t.

Comment, sucker!
