Advertisers Flee Fox News’ Chubby Racist Hate-Clown

Vile behavior is usually rewarded by Idiot America (see “Michael Vick”), but there is finally some sort of financial penalty for being a repulsive screaming nutbag racist bag of clown shit on a national cable-news station owned by one of the world’s biggest media companies: advertisers flee!

Guess Who’s Advertising In Arizona?

Pampered, carpetbagging playboy John McCain’s “home” state of Arizona has gone dangerously pink in the last few days, and the Obama campaign is so awash in cash that they decided enh, what the hell, why not throw up some ads on the teevees in John McCain’s seventeen Phoenix mansion condos. So Obama will be airing some POSITIVE commercials there, to be classy. [First Read] Read more on Guess Who’s Advertising In Arizona?…

Barack Obama Releases Ad With Words And Thoughts In It

The Democratic presidential candidate constantly condescends to Ordinary Americans by saying, “you’re smarter than Washington gives you credit for,” and “I have great faith in the intelligence of the American people,” and by asking voters to “read” and “think about” things. OH SNOOZE. Well, here is his latest bit of elitist propaganda: two minutes talking into a camera about how everybody’s poor but he has a Plan to fix it. This ad would have improved by at least 50 percent if he had worn a bear suit, talked to a parrot, or been “disrespectful” to whatserface, the one with the snow shoes.

John McCain Buried In Pile Of Angry ‘View’ Hosts

What is the world coming to when the ladies on The View ask John McCain the toughest questions he’s gotten in weeks? And yet even these hardened journalists don’t follow up on one of his most infuriating talking points of this whole infuriating campaign, which is that he had to start running ads that were complete utter laughable bullshit lies because Obama didn’t want to debate him as often as McCain would have liked. This is akin to saying, “I was forced to smother your house in a truckload of diarrhea because you wouldn’t answer my phone calls.” Anyhow, here he is, squirming despicably.

Bobblehead Pope Ad Offends Humorless Catholics

The DC Metro ran this ad on a bobbleheaded Pope riding the Metro to a big crazy Papal Mass at Nationals Stadium, and the Washington Archdiocese was like, Hey that is not funny, you are talking about the leader of our religion there, and he would never advise riding the DC Metro, furthermore he is not wearing the right Pope-hat.

WaPo.com: Fuck You, You Love the Redesign

Oh hey, do you read the Washington Post on the internets? If you do, you may have noticed that they quietly rolled out a new design last week — and if the 11 million responses to their announcement on the blog are any indication, it’s a hit! I suppose the objective was to make the paper itself as difficult as possible for the filthy liberals to read, and comment on all the lies and propaganda you publish. Posted by: newspaperman506 | April 1, 2007 12:36 PM That’s one randomly selected comment, and the rest of them are in almost complete agreement that everything about the new homepage is a terrible travesty on par with the massacre of the Indians and Shakespeare in Love’s Oscar. It turns out readers don’t like pointless click-thrus, more white space, and making more room for millions of ads (oh hi, Denton). More reader responses, after the jump.

Hillary: The Mind-Meld is Begun!

More Fun With Contextual Advertising

After we exposed the bathroom difficulties of the men of Media Matters, DCist published this helpful primer on ass-wiping protocols, as well as other matters of bathroom etiquette. We linked to it last night, and now we’d like to mention it again. A reader just pointed out that the contextual ads on the DCist page, generated automatically from the page content using a Google algorithm, “are even more disgusting than the article.” Read more on More Fun With Contextual Advertising…
 

Another Reason for Lackluster Military Recruitment?
