  1. To be fair, Palin’s moose count is brought up by that night where she got blasted on White Russians, started writing freestyle moose-based rap on Twitter in a rap battle with Cindy McCain and then passed out in front of the TV watching Ice Road Truckers

  2. >>Rahm Emanuel’s shenanigans are getting worse than Karl Rove’s

    I don’t think so Sully. Hot Karl leads Rahmbo in outed CIA agents 1 to 0.

  3. How on earth did you miss the clip of Shatner reading Palin’s tweets immediately following the ThinkProgress post?!?! That’s MUCH more newsworthy!!

  4. A privileged white man was arrested here, in DC

    The world is broken up into cops and dirtbags. Dirtbags in descending order of how much violence they deserve are: White upstanding citizens, black upstanding citizens, economically questionables, and deaf constipated people using public restrooms.

  5. [re=374375]mattbolt[/re]: I’m thinking some of Palin’s kids were sired by moose, and I mean that in the best possible way.

  6. I gave a couple hundred bucks to Hopey’s campaign. Where’s my ambassadorship? I have no problem not getting a big country like England or France but if they give me a small Caribbean island that nobody cares about I’d be fine.

  7. Drunk belligerent frat-lawyer screams at police making a bust across the street. Problems ensue.

    Yeah, I’d hire this guy to defend me. He really knows how to work the strings of power. Sheesh.

  8. I go to Think Progress for more creative ways to spell the word republican (e.g. rethuglipican, repiglicans, repiglets, rethinknoticans ,etc)

  9. [re=374456]slithytoves[/re]: I don’t think it’s been here – this is becoming a regular feature on Conan’s show. Shatner recited tweets this time, not the resignation word salad.

  10. Little known fact: As a teenager Obama belonged to a slightly militant group known as the black penguins. They would use almost anything (molotov water balloons, frightful hand gestures, verbal barks, partial nudity, gravity bongs) to attain their ends.

  11. Oh, boy:

    Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) is responding sternly to Sen. George Voinovich (R-OH), who blamed Southerners for dragging the Republican Party’s fortunes down.

    “I’m on the side of conservatives getting back to core conservative values,” Vitter told the Washington Times. “There are a lot of us from the South who hold those value, which I think the party is supposed to be about. We strayed from them in the past few years, and that’s why we performed so badly in the national elections.”

    And, the response by the state’s Democratic Party:

    Louisiana Democratic Party spokesman Kevin Franck e-mailed us a fun comment. “Last time I checked, you don’t find core Southern values in the places David Vitter has been found,” said Franck. “If David Vitter can lead his party back to their conservative values, maybe Larry Craig can give them tips on bathroom etiquette and Mark Sanford can recommend a really good restaurant in Buenos Aires.”

    I snap! I love La.
