so much for hard hitting journalists! the media turns wussy for palin

The media has been sucking big time this election.  Sarah Palin has decided to end her media silence and sit down for an interview with Charlie "Looking for Knee Pads Now In Order to Kneel Before Her Majesty Palin" Gibson.  If I were you, I'd skip that crap just so that ABC won't get the ratings win they are hoping for.  I'm sure the toughest question Gibson will ask her is: What is your favorite gun for hunting?

It's funny how the Right accused the media of liberal bias when they accused journalists of drinking the Obama Kool Aid.  They all seem to be drunk on Sarah Palin.  Oh no! The media can't interview her until they are ready to show her some respect.   Yeah, honey.  I'm sure Hugo Chavez and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (in case Palin hasn't been prepped yet on these people, they are the leaders of Venezuela and Iran respectively) are ready to show you some respect should you become leader of the free world (God forbid). 

My co-worker and I recently noted that the only unbiased journalism we've seen as of late is on The Daily Show (their mockery of Obama's nomination video was awesome).  I don't know about you, but that's pretty pathetic.  Fortunately, I am knowledgeable about politics enough to be able to separate the fact from fiction on a comedy news show.  I'm not sure if I have enough confidence in the rest of the viewing public.  The following videos (although very funny) are pretty good at getting the facts down. 

Just skip to the 3 minute mark on this one.


Oooh...this one is REALLY good.


You know, one day this blog will go back to light-hearted fair instead of being a cheap imitation of Wonkette.  I promise.

But until then, I'm mad as hell and I'm not taking it any more.  I've decided to turn my negative energy into something positive.  I'm volunteering for the Obama campaign!  Tonight!  If you're pissed too, I encourage you to do something positive for the campaign.  I refuse to let McSame/Vagina '08 win.

lol wouldn't it be funny if we out to lunch one day - you wearing a Obama shirt, me wearing a McCain one or my old Giuliani t-shirt - I think we should do that.
If James Carville and Mary Matalin can be married - then anyone can be friends. :-)

instatick: i should trademark it.

you know, i've heard the mcsame thing before so i can't take credit for it. but since any ol' republican woman could've been the vp nominee, let's just reduce palin to how mccain sees her--just another vagina.
