Alabama Politician Inadvertently Exposes Nick Saban’s Lameness

Nick Saban has won a lot of “football,” according to Wikipedia, and that is why every Alabama politician lusts after The Nick Saban Endorsement, because it is some sort of football sports analogy for something really great that is sure to bring you victory. Sadly Nick Saban hates politics and never endorses anybody. But that didn’t stop Dorothy Davidson — a Bessemer, Alabama, mayoral candidate — who went ahead and got Nick Saban’s endorsement anyway, using a picture of him and Adobe’s “Photoshop.” The critics say Dorothy Davidson has no right to pretend that she stood next to Coach Saban and smiled with him as if they were best friends. Well, that’s not what we say. We say: Nick Saban is rich, according to Wikipedia, so why is it that every unphotoshopped photograph of Nick Saban shows him just standing around doing nothing with his wife, and not making out in a jacuzzi tub with hott coeds such as Dorothy Davidson? Are you a loser, Nick Saban? Read more on Alabama Politician Inadvertently Exposes Nick Saban’s Lameness…

Why Does Europe Hate American Freedom Christ?

Most Americans correctly believe that the Christ-child was born 400 years ago in a shitty barn behind Jethro’s Dogfight Shack in Arkansatucky, Missibama. Lo, betwixt her mighty labor pains, his unwed 14-year-old mother (who was just a little bit older than the average first-time mama in today’s South) said to her 20-year-old pervert fiance, “Um, it was God who done gave me the babytimes!” And her fiance, being stupid, said, “I believe you. I’ll be at the carport out back now, forever, listening to Papa Roach.” Then everyone said racist things and rewrote all the schoolbooks to reflect the fact that our nation’s greatest scholar-president was not in fact Thomas Jefferson, but Levi Johnston. And this is the story told in churches from sea to shining sea every Santa Day. Read more on Why Does Europe Hate American Freedom Christ?…

Katie Couric Mocks Sarah Palin For Being Illiterate

Here’s “gotcha journalist” Katie Couric getting quizzed by TMZ about her reading habits. She says the same exact thing that Sarah Palin said (“all of them, any of them”), except she says it to be funny. HOW DISRESPECTFUL. Katie also says she reads The Economist for the articles, and for the monthly compendium of slightly ribald jokes about oversexed blondes which she likes to tell at cocktail parties while John McCain is off raping gorillas.

Wonk’d: A Supremely Bad Hair Day

Washington people just never quit working. Bill Kristol rises early to have breakfast with congressmen, Michael Chertoff spends Friday nights securing the homeland’s movie theaters, and Valerie Plame reads political non-fiction on street corners cause she can’t get enough. And kindly father Alito (at right — ain’t he loveable?) spends his weekends carting his daughter’s luggage all over 37th street. This plus philandering soccer players, jaywalking TV gangsters, and mustachioed wrestlers, after the jump! Read more on Wonk’d: A Supremely Bad Hair Day…
