Peggy Noonan Gets Her Feminist On. No, We’re Serious.

Did you watch This Week with George Stephanopoulos yesterday? Haha of course not. No big deal, because we have the clip that matters, where the roundtable discusses the ouster of Jill Abramson and we get to see Bill Kristol, nascent populist, and Peggy Noonan, budding socialist.

Jennifer Granholm Just Not Used To All The Stupid Things Rick Santorum Says

Why does Rick Santorum keep getting asked on the yap shows? He does not hold an elected office, has not held an elected office since 2007, and does not have anything remotely redeeming to say about much of anything, and yet, he is still treated as though he is Important and Serious and worth listening to. Like in this video clip, which begins with Jennifer Granholm asking Rick Santorum to defend the use of a gun magazine that can tear a “six year old to shreds,” and he is VERY HAPPY TO DO SO!

DNC Charades Winner Jennifer Granholm Was Once Sex-Kitten Dating Game Tramp

We are mildly late to this clip of former (uh, then-future?) Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm’s epic appearance on The Dating Game in 1978, when she was an absurdly chirpy 19-year-old wanna-be actress asking mildly suggestive questions of men who look like they belong in a skeevy porn video or a Bee Gees tribute band (OK, maybe not Bachelor Number 3, who looks more like a junior high school assistant principal from any era in history). But if you had a time machine, meeting 1978 Jennifer Granholm does seem like it should be the first order of business (post KILLING HITLER.)

Brave Michigan City Councilman Under Fire Just For Waving Poster Of Obama With Spear Through His Skull

Sterling Heights, Michigan is one of those blandly Caucasian suburbs filled with cul-de-sacs and Applebees franchises. Local wits are known to on occasion refer to this community as “Sterile Heights” or “Sterling Whites.” So one shouldn’t be surprised to learn that Sterling Heights City Councilman Paul Smith not only thinks some modern-day Robespierre should cold kill President Barack Obama for being worse than Hitler, but he has the guts to say it. Below, please find video of a 2009 Tea Party rally in Troy, and Smith waving signs showing former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm in a noose and Barack Obama with a spear through his skull, with the legend “shit on a stick.” “Hitler was a terrible guy but at least he wasn’t a traitor to Germany,” Smith said. “Obama is a traitor to America.” But here’s the really surprising part, you guys.

Everyone Drop Everything, Robert Gibbs Just Dropped a Tax-Cut Bomb On Twitter

A departing governor about to enter the political wilderness / looking for a job with the administration soon supports the tax-cut compromise? GAME, SET, AND MATCH. This is incredible news. Democrats in Congress are peeing themselves because they are powerless to stop the overwhelming legislative might of Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm. Peeing blood, that is.

Democracy Is Going To Die Tonight, But Your Wonkette Will Be There At the Deathbed To Hold Your Hand

Primary elections for both Democrats and Republicans tonight are said to be “crowded,” just like a hott nightclub, with lots of candidates to make us all sweaty. And luckily, your Wonkette will liveblog the whole affair so you can get all the Congressman Pete Hoekstra you can handle! Not to mention all the hott (Michigan Attorney General Mike) Cox! Both of those fellas are running to succeed term-limited Jennifer Granholm (seen at right with lightsaber) in America’s Worst Job, governor of Michigan. That should be an excellent race, and also gubernatorial and Senate contests are happening in Kansas and Missouri.

Car Lady Is In Town For Car Talks, But What About Supreme Court???

Jennifer Granholm, a woman who will never be elected president of the United States because she is a Snow Mexican, may have to settle for the Supreme Court instead. Rumors have been FLYING about her getting appointed to the bench, and today they fly ever more vigorously because OMG she’s in town. Coincidentally, was she involved in all this hullabaloo about fuel emissions and efficiency standards perhaps because she is the governor of Michigan, the state where all the cars (used to) come from? Nope, the whole “cleaner, gentler auto industry” announcement is clearly a FEINT to get Granholm into a secret back room with Obama where they can talk about Constitutional philosophy.

Sarah Palin Tried To Have Stand-In Take Her Place In Gubernatorial Debate

Someone just sent us this comical article from an October, 2006 edition of the Anchorage Daily News — a reputable journal if ever there were! — about how Sarah Palin had a “scheduling conflict” during a gubernatorial debate with her two challengers and — instead of canceling her dumb conflict, because who cares — she tried to get her running mate to debate for her. Her two challengers wouldn’t agree to this because… just… just NO. What the hell? NO LADY NO. Read more on Sarah Palin Tried To Have Stand-In Take Her Place In Gubernatorial Debate…
 

Kwame Kilpatrick Vetoes His Own Removal

Things haven’t gotten much better since we last checked in on Kwame Kilpatrick, the comical mayor of Detroit and a leading contender for Barack Obama’s black vice presidency. You may recall that his “woes” include bangin’ his chief of staff — the gal he seduced by texting racy notes about “Benz Chili Bowl” — and then firing a bunch of officials who found out about the affair, which he denied doing last summer until, of course, THE TEXTS CAME OUT. He also held sexy stripper parties at his mayoral mansion. So he’s the best mayor of Detroit since Eminem, and he’s under indictment for everything, and yesterday he basically vetoed his own ouster.

Jennifer Granholm’s Medical Emergency Drama!

Yoiks! Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm, the woman who could be president someday if she weren’t a secret Canadian, has undergone emergency surgery to remove “a bowel obstruction.” We don’t know much about bowel obstructions except that labrador retrievers get them when they eat pantyhose. The governor’s problem seems to stem from a 1993 car accident. But what will this mean for Michigan’s Democratic delegate mess? Read more on Jennifer Granholm’s Medical Emergency Drama!…
 

Guessing Game Results: The Unidentified Governor

We asked for your guesses as to the identity of this anonymous Democratic governor (as mentioned in this article from the Post): Governors privately scoff at the slogan [?Together, America Can Do Better?]. They also say the message coming from congressional leaders has been too relentlessly negative. ?They want to coordinate. They want to collaborate. That’s all good,? said one Democratic governor who declined to be identified in order to talk candidly about a closed-door meeting. ?The question is: Coordinate or collaborate on what? People need to know not just what we’re against but what we’re for. That’s the kind of message the governors are interested in developing at the national level.? So, which Democrat was playing the familiar game of carping about fellow Democrats? Your thoughts on this question, after the jump. Read more on Guessing Game Results: The Unidentified Governor…
