I was a little bit surprised at the speed with which the Obama campaign responded to Texas Governor Rick Perry’s formal entry into the 2012 race. Politico has the statement only minutes after Perry’s speech ended, which made me wonder how the President’s people could work so fast. Surely the President’s re-election staff is busy […]
The Delivery Presents – Republicans, Cell Phones, Sock Puppets, and Other Things That Will Hurt You!
Episode 96 had it all: 1) Not-so-gentle mocking of DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. 2) Mentions of Anthony Weiner that didn’t include body parts. 3) A special appearance by my good friend, Occasional Spokespuppet Socky the Sock Puppet. 4) A surprise #WeinerGate revelation. 5) An introduction to the matter of over-hyped college degrees. 6) A special […]
I’ve seen more than a few clips of Lady Margaret Thatcher’s public speeches. This one, by far, is my favorite. She drove a well-placed dagger into the heart of the opposition party with perfect timing and just the right note of sarcasm. I suspect she would have made a mean comedienne. After you’re finished laughing, […]
Were I the professional journalist who wrote this story, I would be pretty happy today. Not only did the story make the rounds of the blogosphere (start your tour with Moe Lane, I Own the World, and memeorandum) but it also could provide a bright and prosperous future for an ambitious writer. How so? Well, dig the headline […]
You just knew it was only a matter of time before word of Jim Joyce’s blown call reached Hitler’s bunker. Sadly, the video is not embeddable, so you’ll have to click the link to get to it. Your time will not be wasted, though. Also, if you want another reasonable, but wrong, opinion on instant […]
While watching this very good video on one of Saul Alinky’s Rules for Radicals, I made a sudden realization. Saul Alinksy looks a lot like the Nazi from Raiders of the Lost Ark whose face melted at the end of the movie. Seriously. Here is Alinsky. And here’s melty-face Nazi (played by Ronald Lacey). Separated […]
Dan Collins is easily one of the most talented writers in the blogosphere. I offer as proof this Seussian piece of satire that tells the tale of how a small fish became mightier than the entire population of California. So Eeyo stopped sipping. He looked towards the sound. “That’s funny,” thought Eeyo. “There’s no one […]
Why yes. Yes this is a link to the Ellen DeGeneris show, why do you ask? She interviewed the actor from the Old Spice “I’m on a horse!” commercial and it’s funny. Don’t judge me! At some point, the person or people who wrote that commercial will get some credit. Yes, Isaiah Mustafa does a […]
Lance Burri is running another Motivator contest and I think he may have won the thing right out of the box. However, that doesn’t stop me from trying. UPDATE: Smitty’s in with a musical throwback plus one.
