Here Are Your Victoria Jackson Campaign Posters, You Liberal Commie Monsters

We asked you to help Wonkette frenemy Victoria Jackson with her inspiring run for alderthingie of her hometown in Tennessee (not Florida, stupid internet), and you came through! Our winning entry is from Gleem McShineys, and it is titled “V-Jack’s Secretz Revealed.” We were taken by the technical proficiency, as well as the metaphorical eloquence of Ms. Jackson being an empty husk being piloted by a stuffed cat — a veritable Ouroboros of puppetry. We suppose that in a technical sense, since it lacks any words like “vote” or “alderman” or “Victoria Jackson 2014” it may not actually count as a “campaign poster,” but then, maybe Gleem’s intent was to move beyond those shallow outward trappings and force voters to contemplate the inner workings of America’s political machinery. Discuss amongst yourselves. Read more on Here Are Your Victoria Jackson Campaign Posters, You Liberal Commie Monsters…

Nation Celebrates Roe v. Wade Birthday With Scary Videos, Hypocrisy, Balloons

Libruls really hit the holiday jackpot this week! First, we had Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and Inauguration Day at the same time, which appropriately coincided with the made-up Fox News holiday, “Sadness Day” (a holiday Olds celebrate by eating burnt pot roast and scowling at Wheel of Fortune). But the fun did not stop there! Yesterday marked the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, which is a Supreme Court decision that lots of people have heard of, yet as the New York Times points out, remains a mystery among the vast majority of America’s tween population, who recognize abortion as that thing that will get an episode of their favorite Canadian teen drama series banned on Nickelodeon.

Annnd … Shepard Fairey Remixes His Obama-Hope Poster For #OWS

People of a certain age (22?) may remember a distinct feeling of hope back in 2008, when a certain candidate for president symbolized a hoped-for end to the pent-up anger, disappointment and disillusionment of the Bush Junior years, the reduced-expectations era of Kerry and Gore and (gah!) Lieberman and Edwards, the reliably chaotic economic bubbles and collapses, the terrorism and consumerism, the disastrous foreign wars, the economic injustice, the willful ignorance of the environmental disaster, the brazen crime spree of the elites, the death of the American Soul, etc. The street artist Shepard Fairey’s now-famous HOPE poster made Barack Obama the living icon of that “okay let’s give it one more try” enthusiasm. And, uh, well, Obama couldn’t even be bothered to change the Defense Secretary, let alone anything in the Wall Street-run Treasury and Fed.

#OWS Says It Will Shut Down NYC Thursday

So what will Occupy Wall Street do now that it’s been run out of Zuccotti Park and another dozen encampments nationwide? Well, there’s this: Facebook event here, although we strongly caution against “liking” things on Facebook when these are the things that attract riot cops and weird acoustic DARPA ear-pain weapons, because the easiest way to find out what The People are doing (or sympathizing with) is to look on their Facebook pages.

John McCain’s EPIC New Ad Loves Barack Obama!

Oh man, this ad is so much better than “Celeb.” While that last one was creepy, this one is funny (or rather, “less creepy”), and expensive-looking, and has an upbeat soundtrack, and says all sorts of nice things about Barack Obama! Also, McCain *finally* admits that Barack Obama freed the Jews from Egypt back when he was a state senator in Illinois. Read more on John McCain’s EPIC New Ad Loves Barack Obama!…
