Waterboardin’ USA
May 27, 2009

Will this damn Sith Lord just go away already? Every other day the man is on one show or another, or giving one speech or another, talking about what a great job he did and how awesome he is. This despite public polling showing him to be less likable than swine flu, Hitler and the “(insert genre) Movie” franchise. Alright, maybe not that last one, but the point is everyone hates him.

The worst best show ever
May 27, 2009

Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip was the other NBC show about the behind the scenes workings of a SNL-style live sketch show. Unlike 30 Rock it lasted only one season, 2006-2007. Recently having gone back to watch some of it, I’m still struck by what a unique (if minor) place it holds in the annals of entertainment history: it’s the best show ever that is almost unwatchable.

I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore!

Anyone ever see this guy Glenn Beck? He’s on Fox News every weekday at 5 PM and he does the greatest impressions you’ll ever see. Well, actually he’s only done one impression that I’ve seen so far, Howard Beale from Network, but man is it a good one.

The best show on TV comes back in August. I expect my loyal readers, all none of you, to be up to date by then. Mad Men is just too good to miss.

I know what you’re doing, Fox
May 13, 2009

I see what’s going on here. You guys padded last night’s 24 by having the recap at the beginning take up almost three whole minutes. That’s just cheating, plain and simple. And it’s not the first time I’ve caught you guys either; I remember when you’d use that extra long Simpsons couch gag at the start of episodes you aired that weren’t long enough to fill a whole half hour timeblock. You thought I forgot? You thought I wouldn’t notice? WELL?

Sadly, it’s come to this: juicing TV shows. Congrats, Fox, you are now the Barry Bonds of television networks (except you suck). I hope you’re proud, you sons of bitches.

That dumb bitch
May 12, 2009

I can’t take it. This stupid, stupid, stupid stupid stupid Miss California is killing me.

1. Nobody threatened her freedom of speech. She said what she said and then people called her stupid (which she is). That is not abridging her first amendment rights.

2. People called her a bigot because she is. You don’t have to say “I hate them damn niggers!” to be a bigot. She’s not hateful or mean-spirited, but she is unquestionably bigoted.

3. “Opposite marriage”. I don’t even know what to say.

And just to top it all off of course that Trump stooge just had to be involved in all of this somehow, because it wasn’t horrifically annoying enough already.

The only possible good that can come from this pseudo-event is that maybe more people will recognize the Christian right for the collection of stupid, stupid people they are, as they have now taken up the cause of this stupid, stupid, STUPID fucking girl just because in this one instance she parroted the same stupid, stupid shit they cling to.

I can’t believe that there could possibly be a more annoying conservative icon than Joe the Plumber but this mentally eroded cunt makes me wish he’d come back on the scene just to beat her silly after a night of heavy boozing.

Rush Limbaugh Is a Big Fat Idiot
May 11, 2009

Saturday was the White House Correspondents Association dinner, which is usually the annual event where whichever middle aged white guy who happens to be the US President at the time cracks the lame jokes written for him by his staff of middle aged white guys at a big group of reporters who are, by and large, surprisingly enough, middle aged white guys. Sounds like a blast, right?

But someone fucked up somewhere and some scruffy looking black guy showed up instead, and he actually wasn’t half bad. He also brought with him a follow up act in Wanda Sykes, who has caused controversy* by saying some not nice things about not nice talk show host/drug addict Rush Limbaugh.

I particularly like the kidney failure line, but we have to be fair here: he’s much more likely to die from something with his lungs, after all these years of inhaling smoke, or his heart, after all these years of inhaling cheeseburgers. Or, of course, he could simply OD after a night of too much booze and oxy.

The serious point here is that, regardless of how it happens, we can all come together and pray in solidarity for the day when that fucking blimp goes down like the Hindenburg.

*not really, just with Fox News and other stupid, ridiculous people
