TED People Nix Income Inequality Chat In Favor Of More Prissy Totebagging Social Media Efficiency Crap

Do you kids like the TED talks? They’re a series of conferences where David Brooks pretends to explain scientific innovation or a “social media pioneer” babbles about how clicking a new computer button on a computer program will save Africa or… well, let’s just see what the top video on their website is right now: “David Kelley: How to build your creative confidence.” We’d rather listen to John McCain sing Ke$ha. “Bart Knols: Cheese, dogs, and pills to end malaria.” Oh my god. “Reuben Margolin: Sculpting waves in wood and time.” Whatever, fraud. “José Bowen: Beethoven the businessman.” Each one is just a fresh new apocalypse. Why not post a talk about, say, the major socioeconomic issue of our era, income inequality and stability? Apparently this would have been too “political” for the TED folks, so they won’t post it online. This deserves some extraordinarily negative feedback.

Massachusetts Democrats Working Overtime To Lose Massachusetts For Elizabeth Warren

Everybody’s super favorite (not kidding) schoolmarm/Senate candidate, Elizabeth Warren, has had a rough week. She did not have a good answer to why she used to say she was Native American. (To us, “our family always thought we were,” which is true, they did, was a waaay better answer than what she eventually came up with, which was on the line of “I wanted to meet people!”). So she had a bad week. All candidates do eventually! It probably would have passed! Unfortunately, Massachusetts Democrats have decided to go on the offensive, with ethics complaints, because there are pictures of Scott Brown’s official events in his campaign ads. There are also several photos in Brown’s first TV ad, “Independent,” that are from Brown’s official events and are posted on his official Senate website — including one of Brown with children at a Boys and Girls club. Oh no, Scott Brown’s campaign website shows him doing his job! Have the Dems bitched about Fenway Park yet? Maybe talked about how gross it would be to have to shake voters’ hands?

OH COME ON: Dawn Johnsen, the nice lady who would’ve made an awesome head of the Justice Department Office of Legal Counsel (PEOPLE WHO WRITE TORTURE MEMOS), has are you kidding WITHDRAWN her nomination? To head the Office of Legal Counsel? Ugh, lame. She was appointed last year, and then her Senate approval stalled for a year, and then Obama reappointed her a couple of months ago, she made it out of committee, it looked like she had the votes, but no. All because Ben Nelson was upset that she’s pro-choice, like most of Ben Nelson’s Democratic party. [TPM] Read more on …

Hmm Could This Whole Anti-Government TeaBag Mob Backfire On Republicans?

It seems kind of crazy to think that encouraging a bunch of ignorant, racist, paranoid fucktards to hate the United States Government might actually backfire on the Republicans who would like to be in charge of that very same United States Government they’re encouraging a bunch of ignorant, racist, paranoid fucktards to rise up against, but facts are stupid things.

Enraged Teabaggers Now Posting Dumb Pictures On Scott Brown’s Facebook Page

First they typed some crazytime Twitter stuff, then they typed anger-bear Facebook messages, and now they’re posting poorly Photoshopped pictures on Scott Brown’s Facebook page. What could be next? Is there anything left to do, on the Internet, about this traitor motherfucker Scott Brown? Anything shy of getting up from the computer, we mean? How about attacking his daughter’s Facebook pages? Yeah why not, the fucking whores! [Gawker] Read more on Enraged Teabaggers Now Posting Dumb Pictures On Scott Brown’s Facebook Page…

Sarah Palin’s Pet Wingnut Concedes NY Congressional Race, Again

Doug Hoffman, the wingnut geek who forced the Republican out of New York’s 23rd congressional district special election but then lost that election to the Democrat and then proceeded to concede and later unconcede, finally admitted defeat (again) today, which caused the spontaneous pregnancy of Sarah Palin (again) and the immediate sale of 1 gazillion copies of Palin’s book, I’m Awesome.

White House Responds To Rich Tom Daschle’s Withdrawal

Here’s our main man, “Bob” Gibbs, responding to the lady’s question about Tom Daschle’s *sudden* withdrawal. Gibbs is hilariously evil, usually — you can tell sometimes that he wants to find a nosy reporter’s children, throw them over a cliff, and then chuck firecrackers at their bodies — but he just doesn’t seem to enjoy this job very much. Who can blame him! “Are there other nominees with tax problems?” these people ask! Jesus. Besides, the problem ultimately wasn’t that Daschle had forgotten to pay $128,000 in taxes; it was more that his life was so vulgar that he had to pay $128,000 in taxes for a private driver.

McCain-Palin Fire Sale Features $20 Blackberry Phones Full of VIP Emails & Numbers

This fantastic McCain Campaign fire sale doesn’t just provide gadgets and office supplies on the cheap — you can also buy enough Republican VIP personal information and incriminating emails to run your own failed presidential run! Local teevee station Fox 5 sent somebody over to the Everything Must Go sale, and while most of the good stuff was gone, there were still 10 Blackberry fancy-phones selling for $20 each. The teevee reporter bought as many as she could afford (two?) and raced back to the newsroom. Read more on McCain-Palin Fire Sale Features $20 Blackberry Phones Full of VIP Emails & Numbers…

Frumpy Rat Joe Lieberman Starts Hedging!

Joe Lieberman has been so mad at Barack Obama this election because… because Barack Obama campaigned for him in 2006 and Joe Lieberman hates black people? Mmhmm! Joe Lieberman’s gayness for John McCain has led him to call Obama “dangerous,” a traitor who doesn’t care about his Country, and yet he still holds a committee chairmanship from the very Democrats he’s constantly smearing in Republican newspapers. (Interesting fact about Joe Lieberman: he’s 66 years old and has never had sex — seriously, this is on the Internet.) You all are well aware that Joe Lieberman is little more than an alien shit-bastard, so it shouldn’t surprise you that he’s now pretending to be nice to Obama and the liberals, who will soon own Earth.

Andrew Giuliani Throws Apples At People

Over the summer we mentioned that Andrew Giuliani, the son of 9/11, was suing Duke University because “he was wrongfully kicked off the golf team,” because talent should have had nothing to do with whether he made the cut on a sports team. But maybe this stuff does: “Duke said in a court filing Wednesday that the 22-year-old Giuliani was properly suspended after throwing an apple in the face of another player, breaking a golf club during a tournament, injuring a teammate and becoming verbally abusive with a coach.” Andrew denies all of this, which brings us back to the original argument: that he sucks at golf.

Paultards Attack St. Paul!

Your Wonkette was just having some drinks at various patio restaurants in downtown Minneapolis yesterday when strange dorks began walking around, in bizarre costumes. Here we have, uh, “Ninja Hitler,” maybe? And he’s pulling a gimp in a wagon made of … household garbage? Like many other disheveled stringy-haired losers seen around town on Sunday, the gimp was wearing a green scary-face mask, possibly from the Scream movies? But they weren’t all so elaborately costumed. Read more on Paultards Attack St. Paul!…
