  Notorious RBG Meets Inglourious MSNBC

Behind The Black Robe: Ruth Bader Ginsburg On Wine, Abortion, And (Your) Tattoos

There's tributes and then there's weird
MSNBC ran a great big long interview with Ruth Bader Ginsburg Monday night, and she was as wonderful as ever. Irin Carmon talked to her for a good long while, and we learned that Ginsburg is not especially crazy about the current dysfunctional Congress, is reasonably sure that Roe v Wade will stand (though she makes no firm predictions), and is obviously delighted by her status as a nerd icon — but despite being pleased by the “Notorious RBG” stuff, is puzzled that anyone would get her face tattooed on their arm. T-shirts, sure, but a tattoo strikes her as a bit much. Here are a whole bunch of clips from the Rachel Maddow Show and a couple from Lawrence O’Donnell. At some point, MSNBC really should just put the whole uninterrupted interview up online, please. For now, we have the clips and Irin Carmon’s write-up of the interview.

You know how it works: Every weekend we see what horrible crud is stuck in our open browser tabs, bring you the stories that are too stoopid to ignore, but not quite worth a full post on their own, and then spend the rest of the day waiting for Heidi N.

Peggy Noonan Worries That Internet Writers Cannot Perform Five-month Undercover Journalistic Investigations In Newark!

Visit msnbc.com for Breaking News, World News, and News about the Economy Madame regina St. Peggintonia Noonanshire of the Wall Street Journal banking pamphlet guest-hosted a special version of Mornington Joeington today, and one of the topics was the Death of Newspapers and Journalism. In this snippetington, she interrupts a polite conversation between Mika and Arianna to declare an Official Sadness over how, in the future times, our greatest newspapers will not be able to afford sending a single reporter “undercover” to Newark, New Jersey for five months. “Oh well.” Then she calls everyone who does anything on the Internet an idiot, especially in San Diego. Just a very rude woman sometimes, Peggington is. [MSNBC] Read more on Peggy Noonan Worries That Internet Writers Cannot Perform Five-month Undercover Journalistic Investigations In Newark!…

Sarah Palin Interview Circuit Now Includes Wingnut Documentaries About MSM Lies

Here’s Sarah Palin being interviewed for some guy’s upcoming documentary about how the media stole her presidential victory and gave it to Barack Obama — TOO TRUE — by showing wholesale clips of her babbling embarrassing nonsense for minutes at a time, without interruption. This clip is over nine minutes long but we recommend watching it all, for hilarity. The best parts are when she’s watching old clips of herself being mocked on the interviewer’s portable teevee. She gets angry! [Big Hollywood] Read more on Sarah Palin Interview Circuit Now Includes Wingnut Documentaries About MSM Lies…

Keith Olbermann Gets Olbermann-y About Being Mocked On SNL

Here is one of the only non-Palin SNL skits we’ve enjoyed in recent decades: Ben Affleck mocks the crap (however inaccurately) out of that self-righteous silvery fraud, Keith Olbermann, who some of you people inexplicably enjoy. Whatever. But we can all agree that he opens himself to some friendly mockery, right, and that he could be a team player about it when and if it does happen? Well, Olbermann is of course a parody of himself in real life and has responded angrily about the evil conservatives that are bribing NBC to BRING HIM DOWN.

John McCain Throws Sarah Palin, John McCain Under The Bus

Here’s old Walnuts on SNL last night with Tiny Fey, as Sarah Palin. They mock their entire campaign, ha ha ha. It’s pretty funny! Especially near the end when McCain takes the floor out from under Palin’s 2012 chances. Awkward! And after the jump, another clip from Weekend Update with John McCain, because he was just bumming around that studio all night long. They probably offered him a hot meal.

The Couric/Palin Sexterview: It Just Gets Worse

OK Sarah LOOK: no one has any fun mocking you anymore. Just please go back to Alaska and continue firing your ex-brother’s sister’s aunt’s abusive husband’s police dog’s baby’s commissioner again, as you were until this dumb butt, McCain, put you on his ticket. Go back to being a GILF. You were so lovely, then. [Gawker] Read more on The Couric/Palin Sexterview: It Just Gets Worse…
 

Biggest Moron On Earth Makes For Delicious ‘Hardball’ Comedy

We have seen some “chatter” about the second-straight brilliant episode of Hardball today, and hot damn, this is some seven-diamond comedy here. Matthews is interviewing Republican radio host “Kevin James,” who screams in some white-trash voice about Obama being an appeaser for a couple minutes, before — around 4:00 into the clip — Matthews annihilates him, calls him “pathetic,” says “you don’t know anything,” and does this for several minutes. Nice work. Do it again tomorrow! [MSNBC] Read more on Biggest Moron On Earth Makes For Delicious ‘Hardball’ Comedy…
 

Alan Keyes Loses Constitution Party Nomination!

newVideoPlayer("Keys2_Snapper.flv", 475, 376);In what pundits have described as “the most contentious” nomination battle in the Constitution Party’s 16-year history, famous nut Alan Keyes has lost the bid to radio host Chuck Baldwin in a blatant act of white racism. The party held its national convention in Kansas City over the weekend and selected Baldwin over the towering figure of Keyes by a vote of 384-126. Thus ends Alan Keyes’ winding path towards the White House in 2008, the highlight of which was this hilarious performance at a Republican debate in December, which we honor in the above clip.

It’s Hillary’s Friends, And Stephanie Tubbs Jones Shouting!

newVideoPlayer("hils.flv", 463, 387,"");Here is some video from last night’s Hillary Clinton rally at the University of Pennsylvania, including Stephanie Tubbs Jones getting fired up and having a verbal hernia. There’s a cappella and some cameraman giving Liz the middle finger. Then the Mayor of Philadelphia, Michael Nutter, says “MUST BE SOME VOTIN GETTIN READY TO HAPPEN UP IN HERE.” Then Chelsea comes on and says “my mom and my dad blah blah blah, I am the human in this family.” Then Bill Clinton lies, he lies a lot. You’ve never heard someone lie more in your life than you have Bill Clinton at a rally for his wife. But he sounds so nice, still. Then they play a song from the Ford commercials, the end.

Barack Obama Calls Chris Matthews (And Cable News) A Joke

Chris Matthews’ beloved Hardball show had been visiting yet another demographic that has no interest in political shows on cable television: College kids! But it was a lot of fun for everyone, especially when Matthews’ wacky light-hearted question ended up being a total setup for Obama to call him a jackass.

Civil War at Fox News Over Obama Bashing!

newVideoPlayer("whitegrandmama.flv", 463, 387,"");This Jeremiah Wright/Racist Grandma scandal has gotten so out-of-hand that it’s developed some strange new scandal aesthetic — Post-out-of-hand. This stage in scandal evolution can only happen when perennial twit Chris Wallace, of Fox News, criticizes his own network for smearing Obama unfairly. And that is exactly what happened on this morning’s Fox & Friends. So let’s try this out: Th-th-thank you, Chris… Chris Wallace? [Shudder]. And this wasn’t even the best part from this morning’s Fox & Friends! After the jump, watch the least-of-three-evils host, Brian Kilmeade, get so upset about the Obama bashing that he storms off the set, like a hobo! [UPDATE: The RedLasso player was crashing many browsers, so we have combined the two clips into one tour de force of hilarious Fox infighting! Brian Kilmeade walking off the set is first; Chris Wallace’s heroic stand begins with two (2) minutes left in the video]. Read more on Civil War at Fox News Over Obama Bashing!…
 

Barack Obama Will Unite Everything With His Speaking

newVideoPlayer("Obama_Speech.flv", 463, 387,"");The people on the teevee are saying this speech will define Barack Obama’s candidacy, because it is about race. Yes, his entire campaign is 100% about race. Or something? We’ll leave that to the Professional Experts like Joe Scarborough. Still, good job once again, Barry — this little number had some bite. And since he’ll lose Pennsylvania anyway, not a bad time to get this off his chest. Read more on Barack Obama Will Unite Everything With His Speaking…
 

Tracy Morgan Endorses Obama On Saturday Night Live

Over the years, Saturday Night Live has witnessed a dramatic evolution in its black acting talent: from a hilarious actor who happens to be a crack addict (Garrett Morris) to a hilarious actor who imitates crack addicts (Eddie Murphy) to an unfunny actor who happens to be drunk most of the time (Tracy Morgan). Here’s former SNL cast member Tracy Morgan endorsing Barack Obama and mumbling something about government cheese. We are looking forward to Inauguration Day 2009, when President John McCain personally bombs Saturday Night Live from his Space Rascal. Read more on Tracy Morgan Endorses Obama On Saturday Night Live…
