Republican scare tactics filter into the real debate on health care reform, taking their toll on President Obama’s sales pitch.

HILARIOUS!

Senator Sessions Look-Alike?

I happen to like Sen. Jeff Sessions. I think he’s a thoughtful politician who, I believe, will be a much more tempered leader during the Sotomayor hearings than Chuck Grassley would have been. BUT (and there’s always a caveat), it’s quite possible that his astonishing resemblance to another American icon may confuse and fluster viewers at home:

 

Senator Jeff Sessions  Keebler Elf                                                  VS.

Official Cramer-Stewart Interview, Pt. 1

Watch Jon Stewart take Jim Cramer down like a skilled big-game hunter. Can we consider Cramer big-game? Is there a minimum size requirement?

Would Somebody Please Translate Chuck Grassley (remote via Twitter) For Me?

I just received this Tweet (punctuation for punctuation) from the ever-comical Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA):

ChuckGrassley: Attention la legislative business lobbyists:I visit w many Repbli can REPs and Sntors. Don’t take ur frends 4granted. U spend all time w Dem

Did Sen. Chuck Grassley really just ask to be lobbied  (in what I believe to be some kind of Creole accent) via the public Twitter network? Isn’t that supposed to be a behind-the-scenes kind of thing? Wow. Wow.

Cramer vs. Stewart Duke It Out…And It’s A Thing Of Beauty

Cramer vs. Stewart. I’m so glad this happened.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Jon Stewart does such an amazing job with the Daily Show, and while I realize that it’s the format of the show + the nature of Comedy Central that allow it to be what it is, I sometimes feel like he’s wasting significantly greater talents (could he be the next Plouffe or Axelrod but HILARIOUS?). I hope that at least either he or Stephen Colbert soon makes an irreverent feature-length docucomedy. Or they could make one TOGETHER. And Tina Fey. Is that too much politihumor in one place?

More analysis on the actual clip to come later…

Dickipedia!

Dickipedia

Dickipedia

Very funny site from 23/6.

Of course, since it isn’t actually a real wiki, it isn’t publicly editable. Therefore, I challenge those of you out there who would like to expand this venerable project with the addition of  your very own choices for political/media dicks (ahem, Eric Cantor please?), to send a message to 236.com and their parent company huffingtonpost.com demanding editorial rights for the rest of us. Otherwise I’m starting douchebagipedia.com ASAP. Do you really want the competition Dickipedia? Huh?

And to be honest douchebagipedia.com just doesn’t have the same ring to it…
