America’s Sweetheart Paul Ryan Will Lie Pathologically To Your Face, Stimulus Edition

We bet any minute Aaron Sorkin will come out with a Newsroom episode about the very special time in October 2010 when Zooey Deschanel’s younger twin sister, Paul Ryan, denied having asked for stimulus funds like Peter denied Christ. But — whoa! — would you guess that before flat-out denying that he’d lobbied for stimulus funds, Paul Ryan had in fact written five different letters to the Obama administration asking for stimulus funds? A Republican lying until his eyeballs fall out? That is so weird! Read more on America’s Sweetheart Paul Ryan Will Lie Pathologically To Your Face, Stimulus Edition…

Will Barack Obama Save America’s Newspapers, With Money?

The sad saga of America’s important newspapers has taken another downward turn, as it looks like the New York Times Company will maybe, probably, definitely shut down the Boston Globe, which it owns, for not making any money at all. A journalistic reporter at today’s White House press briefing asked Robert Gibbs about the Globe‘s demise, and what it all means, and whether Barack Obama will maybe bailout all of these newspapers? With more unicorn money?? Gibbs had one of those “How should I put this…” reactions. Read more on Will Barack Obama Save America’s Newspapers, With Money?…
 

Mittens Leading Exit Polls, Probably Will Lose Now

According to Drudge, Mittens will SURGE to a win in Michigan if exit polls have any say. Mittens leads said unsourced exit polls 34% to McCain’s 28% and Huckabee’s 16%. That sounds about right. But we’re not supposed to trust polls anymore, because of their various New Hampshire-contracted cancers. The Boston Globe, however, notes that independents only made up 25% of voters in this primary, compared with 35% in 2000. So less independents = more usual douchebags determining the outcome = a sparkling bubbly win for Mittens. But you must stay… or the boy dies?

Hillary Locks Up Major Iowa Endorsement, Stops Dying

The big news on the Internets this morning: The REQ-edited Des Moines Register issued its coveted endorsements last night, and it’s Clinton for the Demrats and McCain for the Republicans. REQ — real name Carolyn Washburn, which, if you google, will take you to various hate websites — was clearly impressed with the rapidly sinking quality of Hillary’s campaign and the non-existence of McCain’s in Iowa.

Tancredo to Eliminate Competition with Sports Bets

Although Colorado Rep. Tom Tancredo is totally a shoe-in to become the next president, the nativist speedaholic is selflessly willing to put it all on the line with a World Series bet against Soxy colleague Mitt Romney. A spokesman for the Tancredo campaign (probably his dog or something) called ABC News this morning with a wager for Mitt Romney: If the Rockies lose the World Series then Tancredo will drop out, if the Red Sox lose then Romney will. It’s a charitable offer to Romney, whose pathetic campaigning has only landed him in first place in both Iowa and New Hampshire polls. The fool can’t recognize a good opportunity when it hits him square in the magic pajamas, and his campaign has rejected the offer. A deflated Tom Tancredo will resume betting on cockfights in the Mexico City underworld. Read more on Tancredo to Eliminate Competition with Sports Bets…
