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.

Obama Forced To Listen To People Sing About How Terrible He Is

President Obama held a fundraiser in San Francisco yesterday, and, would you believe it, some people don’t like the fact that he hasn’t honored his campaign promises! Slow-working security guys failed to wrangle a group of protestors at the $5,000 a plate gig, and they were able to complete a protest song. “That was a nice song,” the illegal-prison president responded. Nice in that he will stop violating civil liberties and such? No. Read more on Obama Forced To Listen To People Sing About How Terrible He Is…

Protestor Throws Crosses At Muslim Praying Near White House

According to TPM’s Ryan J. Reilly, a police officer at the scene said this Muslim man shows up at the White House “every couple days” to pray. That was lucky for anti-Sharia protestors who were there and couldn’t find any Muslims to yell at. Read more on Protestor Throws Crosses At Muslim Praying Near White House…

Fox News’ Mike Tobin Says He Was Attacked By Wisconsin Protester

Masses of people in Wisconsin have been peacefully protesting for weeks now, because of their governor’s decision to take away worker’s rights for no good reason; not a single protester in Madison haseven been arrested. But that hasn’t stopped Fox News from trying to convict them all. Witness this hilarious report from Fox’s Mike Tobin on Sunday, pretending a whole bunch of protesters were going to get violent, get shot by tear gas, and get arrested. These people are from the Midwest, so they’re spending their time at the protest kindly knitting with each other, but that won’t stop this Fox guy from saying they “hit” him. RIGHT-WING BLOGOSPHERE POWER RANGERS, IT’S MORPHIN’ TIME! Read more on Fox News’ Mike Tobin Says He Was Attacked By Wisconsin Protester…

Poor Obama Has Nowhere To Celebrate 9/11 This Year :(

We all know that 9/11 is the best holiday ever. It’s like Christmas and the Fourth of July and Halloween combined! Dick Cheney is alive right now just because he willed himself to see another 9/11. But according to Politico, who have labeled the situation “awkward,” like a 19-year-old coed, Barack Obama has nowhere to go this year. The site in Pennsylvania where that one plane ran into the ground? Michelle and Laura Bush are going to be there, so that 9/11 place is for girls. Eww! 9/11 cooties! Obama can’t go to the Pentagon, because he went there last year, and everyone knows that that one isn’t important enough to visit twice. As for the World Trade Center site, well, umm, there will be anti-mosk protesters there. Read more on Poor Obama Has Nowhere To Celebrate 9/11 This Year :(…

Lindsey Graham Finally Hanged, Beaten In Effigy In South Carolina

Last week, a “nationally-known pro-life supporter from Washington, D.C.,” Randall Terry, came to Greenville, South Carolina and hanged and beat up effigies of Sen. Lindsey Graham. There is a precious photo gallery of this historical event of lolz, which may prove to be the turning point in our nation’s history. Photo One: Bystanders look on in utter glee. Photo Three: Lindsey’s head appears to be taped to a stuffed duck’s ass. Photo Four: Some delinquent hits the Lindsey pinata. Photo Six: Said delinquent looks evil and also dubious as abortion guy puts his arm around him. ET CETERA. Read more on Lindsey Graham Finally Hanged, Beaten In Effigy In South Carolina…
 

Korea Has the Best-Dressed Protestors with the Prettiest Signs

All images: AP So I guess there’s totally something up in Korea, because I saw all these protestors on TV. I didn’t really pay attention to what they were demonstrating about, though, because I kept getting distracted by their beautiful modernistic signs and their snappy protest outfits. They wear ties! They’re clean! And then I got sad because I started thinking about our dumpy ol’ protestors with their ugly Sharpie-scrawled signs, like that dowdy mother lady and all those Greenpeace interns, and, who knows, maybe even sign-wavers sporting “miniskirts, stiletto heels, low-cut spandex tops” and, God forbid, flip-flops like the Washington Times tried to warn us about the other day. Let’s take a cue from our Korean friends and tighten-up a little, shall we? More good-looking signs and the people who wave (and burn) them after the jump.

Fucked Region Wants Cheney to Know How It Feels

Now we see why he wanted to stay so long in Wyoming: Dick Cheney gets what’s known as the Leahy treatment, when on a tour of the hurricane-devastated Gulfport, Mississippi, a protestor repeatedly yelled “Go fuck yourself!” When a reporter asked if whether Cheney was “getting a lot of that,” Cheney started to reply, “Must be a friend of John. . . ” and then broke off with a curt “Never mind.” People of course are speculating that the vice president was going to finish the sentence with “Kerry.” But that’s just unfair: The administration has made it plain that it will not stand for the politicization of this national tragedy. Our theory is that he recognized the heckler as an old friend of John Bolton–especially since, if you view the footage closely, the man is plainly preparing to hurl a stapler. — HOLLY MARTINS Read more on Fucked Region Wants Cheney to Know How It Feels…
