Nice Time: MRC Posts ‘Gotcha’ Video About California’s Transgender Locker Room Law, Accidentally Fills It With Nuance And Thoughtfulness

This fellow Dan Joseph, from Brent Bozell’s Media Research Center, posted a hilarious-so-funny video of himself pretending to be “a transgender” by talking like a BIIIIIIIG FAG and lisping things like “My name is Dan, I am a transgender, which means I have the Man Parts? Can I come in your locker room with you because I am a pretty lady too?” Read more on Nice Time: MRC Posts ‘Gotcha’ Video About California’s Transgender Locker Room Law, Accidentally Fills It With Nuance And Thoughtfulness…

Dick Armey Sorry He Dished To Most Sinister Far-Left Outlet On The Planet, ‘Media Matters’

Were any of you as surprised as we were when Dick Armey decided to dish about all the crimes going on at his “grassroots” Tea Party group to the most sinister far-left outlet on the planet, Media Matters, last week? It was awesome; he explained how the “grassroots” Tea Party group FreedomWorks, before it paid him $8 million to leave like two months early, also paid millions to Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh to say nice things about it, and not in any kind of “this is a paid promotion,” or “here is a message from our partners” way, because that is a thing that Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh do. It’s just called “ethics” you guys, and Limbaugh and Beck are full to bursting with it! Well Erick Erickson and stupidest man on the Internet Jim Hoft were as surprised as you were! But there is a simple answer. Dick Armey has picked up the phone again to set the record straight (again), and this time it was one-ringy-dingy, two-ringy-dingies to the Daily Caller, who are presumably Erickson- and Jim Hoft-approved! And it turns out it was all a big misunderstanding. Armey thought the whole time he was on the horn with Media Matters that he was actually spilling his guts to far-right lunatics at the Media Research Center. This is because he is an old man and, unlike your Wonkette, does not actually know who Brent Bozell is.

Wingnuts Furious: Washington Post Called A Thing By The Name That It Is Called

Hey Tim Graham of the Media Research Center writing in Newsbusters, how are you contributing to the education and enlightenment of the Internet today? “Tasteless: In Newtown Aftermath, WashPost Cites So-called ‘Saturday Night Massacre’ in First Sentence of Bork Obit.” Hold on … can’t type … WaPo can’t say the name that a thing is called by, because … well, because the Media Research Center says so.

Michelle Obama Spends More Time on Television Than Actual Actors, According to Vague Statement

We have been following Michelle Obama’s television escapades – most recently, an appearance on The Biggest Loser and Colbert – and we are not the only ones. Fox News would like you to know that Michelle Obama is now the “most televised” First Lady. When she’s not secretly plotting the Obama administration’s next move in the ongoing Battle of the Sexes (like the radio show/board game, except the prize is an unwanted pregnancy) our Michelle has been hitting every circuit, from late night comedy to mid-morning children’s to late afternoon tween. But since this is an election year, it is important, according to this article, to ask ourselves, “Was Michelle Obama being sincere with those muppets on Sesame Street, or just trying to get their votes?” Read more on Michelle Obama Spends More Time on Television Than Actual Actors, According to Vague Statement…

Amazing Magazine ‘The Conservative Teen’ Has A Lot To Say, None Of It By Teens

Today is a good day. Here is a magazine called The Conservative Teen, whose first issue is miraculously FREE and ONLINE for you to read in its entirety. The Conservative Teen appears to essentially be one of those “$4.99 ORDINARILY BUT FOR YOU, FREE!” fake magazines like Raw Life Today, or whatever, that sneak their way into your doctor’s waiting room. Except with The Conservative Teen, what we have is not product-touting, but idea-touting. IDEAS. Finally, some ideas. Like how to always have a baby at any time. And to never watch Glee. And of course, because the titular reader of this magazine doesn’t know anything because they are home-schooled in a patient manner, the articles in The Conservative Teen are written by grownups, who all happen to be involved with either The Heritage Foundation, Fox Business News, the Family Research Council or the Media Research Center. Fun fun fun! Read more on Amazing Magazine ‘The Conservative Teen’ Has A Lot To Say, None Of It By Teens…

Founder Of Media Research Center Brent Bozell Has No Idea What First Amendment Does

L. Brent Bozell III, the erudite and thoughtful fuhrer of rightwing hacktanks like the Media Research Center, proved his bona fides for leading anything that conducts “research” into “media,” by evincing via Twitterz a complete and total non-understanding of the Constitutional basis for our cherished American Free Speech. Jawing hacking on behalf of (who else?) poor beleaguered Rush Limbaugh, Bozell vomited forth this bit of utter nonsense: “Anti-free speech leftists despise first amendment, want Rush FIRED. Don’t let hypocrites win, sign MRC’s petition now!” There is then a link to MRC’s petition, which we are not pasting here because we would never let you sign something so lame.

Child With Slightly Painted Foot Infuriates Conservatives

“A J.Crew ad that shows a top designer painting her young son’s toenails neon pink has some parents and doctors seeing red,” reports Fox News. Why are America’s physicians and people who have no role in the life of the child in question suddenly concerned with a photograph on a clothing website of a small, smiling human with some paint on his foot? Well, they’re not. The “doctors” are Fox News columnist “psychiatrist Dr.” Keith Ablow and the “parents” are people on Fox Nation who don’t know how to spell. You know, a national controversy! Will this child suddenly think he has a vagina because his mom painted part of his foot this one time? Probably, this expert “doctors” says. And people who don’t have vaginas should not think they have vaginas. Read more on Child With Slightly Painted Foot Infuriates Conservatives…
 

Joe The Plumber Looks To Bone Someone At Anti-Media Dinner

There seemed to be a hilarious awards ceremony dinner in Washington last night thrown by the Media Research Center, which researches how liberal and gay the media is. It was called the “DisHonor Awards” — see what they did there? — and so a bunch of assholes came to make “Obamessiah” jokes. Joe the Plumber showed up is slob clothes as usual (because that’s his character!) and said, “God, all this love and everything in the room – I’m horny,” which appears to have scarred the entire Washington Post staff.

Update: Men at Media Matters Still Total Fucking Slobs

The good people are Media Matter for America: hard at work fighting conservative bias, still pissing off the janitorial staff: Subject: Men’s bathroom….againFrom: [Redacted]Date: Mon, March 27, 2006 12:51 pmTo: [Everyone with a penis]Priority: High I’m sorry to have to send another e-mail about the men’s bathroom, but Jenny was on the receiving end of an unfortunate tirade from the building engineer (wait….assistant building engineer) a few minutes ago about a clogged toilet from this morning. I know that none of you would intentionally “stuff” a toilet, but he seems to think that someone from this office is doing just that. I’m not sure how to suggest to you guys to be conscious of what’s going down there (and I know it sounds ridiculous), but please try. They already hate us, so let’s try to play nice.
