She Who Lives In A Post-Apocalyptic Petrostate Shouldn’t Throw Stones

  • Sarah Palin has been making fun of bloggers for living “in their parents’ basement.” Twice she has said this thing without anyone reminding her that Alaska is America’s basement, with a dusty old tanning bed and a Treadmill or whatever, and Wasilla is like the crawlspace in that basement, filled with asbestos, middle school report cards and and some meth, from the 90s.

  • Obama campaign manager David Plouffe—you might recognize the name from your deleted mail folder—doesn’t want to be DNC Chairman, a dumb job that even maple-flavored hysteric Howard Dean won’t keep doing. [Marc Ambinder]

  • Rumors are swirling that Bill Clinton is in the tank for Joe Lieberman and has been offering phone sex to Dems (in the form of a dramatic reading of the Starr Report) in return for votes that would allow Lieberman to keep his chairmanships. [HuffPost]

    One of Paul Broun’s quotes begins, “It might sound a little bit crazy…”
    “A little bit.”
    I think it’s very nice that retarded people have their own Congressman. That’s very special.

  • Tommy Says Soooo

    I think Lieberman should keep his chairmanships if he sucks Rahm’s gefilte that has gone unwashed for three days. Or else the chair can be taken fromunda him.

    Make him squirm squeal. Everyone knows he will do it and there is no new low for him to sink to.

    Oh, and have Debbie Wasserman-Schultz knee him in the ‘nads to see if he flinches.

    “Alaska is America’s basement”

    Yeah, a basement that apparently contains a lot of uncounted votes.

  • hockeymom

    “Straight Outta Compton” takes on new meaning after looking at that map.

  • ManchuCandidate

    Hey, I work in my basement (only because I can.)

    Alaska’s more like the dimwitted cousin living in his parents basement who thinks that he’s independent despite the fact that mommy cooks, cleans and pays his bills.

  • Dreamer

    I don’t understand Bubba – does he like people who abuse him? Didn’t Lieberman despise him for his “moral failings”? Why is he helping him in his time of need when Lieberman kicked him when he was down (Monica episode)?

    On another note, check out this poster wingnuts made of glamorous conservative ladies and not so hot liberal women. Notice how they have the ugliest pictures of the liberal women.

  • dano

    Sigh, if Franken wins his recount and Uncle Ted loses because of the the “lost, now found” votes in Alaska, they’re gonna need Vinegar Joe to get a filibuster proof majority. Damn, I wanted them to fillet Lieberman alive for his disloyalty!

  • shanemcgowan

    The Texas state education-board member who wrote the screed about Obama planning a terrorist attack so that he could impose Marshall Law is the founding editor of the Regent Law Review.

  • Cathangover

    By the time I point out the two errors in this pos they will have been corrected and I will be the shitty curmudgeon that hates funny.

  • cal

    Wait, is Hopey supposed to be Hitler, Osama bin Laden, the Antichrist or a socialist?

    It’s so hard to keep up.

  • DemmeFatale

    Juli’s on fire today!

  • Serolf Divad

    I tend to think of Alaska as America’s dusty attic… you know, where we put that cot so crazy ol’ and Sarah could have a place to sleep, even though we know she never uses it, preferring instead to curl up into some old drapes in the corner.

  • hedgehog

    Ross Perot’s crazy aunt is a blogger? Must be where Sarah learned how to make “that giant sucking sound”.

  • blinky_twinkie

    The Angeles National Forest voted No on 8??? Guess they got out the bear vote…,0,5863152.htmlstory

  • Bring Back Anthony Mason

    [re=173505]cal[/re]: He is Osama bin Hitler, the socialist Antichrist. duh.

  • finallyhappy

    [re=173530]Bring Back Anthony Mason[/re]:
    No, I am Jewish and I am pretty sure the anti-christ has to be a Jew- maybe Rahm?

  • RaptorAvatar

    I’d wager that most of us have done a better job paying our own rent over the past few years than that freeloading Caribou Stacy doll has.

  • Mrs. Puddles

    I am delighted beyond all reason by “maple-flavored hysteric.”

  • InKnockYouUs

    [re=173530]Bring Back Anthony Mason[/re]: [re=173530]Bring Back Anthony Mason[/re]: Cool. I think we should all call him that now: Osama bin Hitler, the socialist Antichrist. Oh, I forget, irony is lost on them.

  • InKnockYouUs

    And I think we should bring back Anthony Mason, whoever that is.

  • Toomush Infermashun

    I think the condition for Lieberman to remain in the party is that, instead of saying ANYTHING the next few years, when called upon, he is only allowed to dance silently with a fish on his head. In case he cannot find a fish a feather boa will be an allowable substitute. Oh, and his voting card should automatically be credited as suporting any Democratic majority vote. Of course, this will make it probable that chairmanship of ANYTHING would be fairly difficult, and, that would be tough titty….

  • Toomush Infermashun

    Also, in re the Osama von Hitler allegations: the new youth brigade will not be brownshirts, just brownies….

  • Origami

    Juli, you are a gem.

  • CharlesRevere

    Sarah Palin continues to stab her mentors in the back.

    There is a blogger who lives in his mother’s basement, Adam Brickley, who started a blog two years ago to “draft Sarah Palin”.

    He is credited by some for getting her on the ticket. And this is how she shows her gratitude, by dissing bloggers who live with their mother.

    The least she could do to this terminally nerdish young man who has never been laid is send him some of her slightly soiled lingerie.
