Today on his radio show, Rush Limbaugh praised the new book by Martin Eisenstadt, “I Am Martin Eisenstadt: One Man’s (Wildly Inappropriate) Adventures with the Last Republicans.”
Limbaugh spoke for more than an hour about the book, giving it extremely high praise.
“This Eisenstadt, he has written the best book on politics I’ve ever read,” said Limbaugh. “This book is way, way better than the Bible. You can quote me, Rush Limbaugh, on that.”
Limbaugh went on to say that the book has changed his life, and he demanded all his followers to buy it, immediately. [Read more]
NEW YORK - Showcasing once again that she’s an ideological maverick, Alaska ex-governor Sarah Palin has announced that she is throwing her support behind surprise candidate Leviticus in in a special U.S. House election in Upstate New York. Leviticus will be competing for the seat against Assemblywoman Dede Scozzafava.
“Republicans and conservatives around the country are sending an important message to the Republican establishment in their outstanding grassroots support for Leviticus: no more politics as usual,” said Palin. [Read more]
How will this ingenius piece of Web 2.0 software be used? My guess is however Fox wants. If they want to attack Obama on change, they have two ways to go. On the one hand, they can criticize him for not creating enough change, thus failing in his stated mission. On the other hand, they can criticize him for creating too much change by dragging real Americans into the shadowy, bi-curious world of Islamic socialism. Heads they win, tails they win!
When President Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize, many noted that it came with a $1.4 million prize. What would Obama do with it? Well, while a variety of charities will likely get the money, it’s apparent that the GOP could use some of the money so that they and Michael Steele can have a $1.4-million Web presence:
The recent relaunch of GOP.com featured a miniature animated Michael Steele begging for money and an appropriation of the ghost of Jackie Robinson and was the most comically awful thing in the history of the internet. The cost: $1.4 million. [Read more]
As the world’s foremost expert on Martin Eisenstadt, I’ve done quite a bit of snooping around to learn more about his upcoming book, “One Man’s Wildly Inapproriate Adventures with the Last Republicans.”
When I worked for a software company, a fellow computer programmer once lamented that the salespeople earned so much more than the coders, despite the fact that the coders were generally better educated, more intelligent, and more essential to the company's core value: its products. The reason for the disparity is straightforward. Salespeople are closer to the money. It is very difficult for executives to perceive the value good programmers, who represent cogs somewhere deep in the machine, but the value of good salespeople is obvious from their sales numbers. For instance, it is easy to justify paying $200,000 in salary and bonus to a salesperson who makes sales worth $500,000 in annual profits. [Read more]
Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne has been spending a lot of time on the Fox Business Network. A couple days ago, Byrne was on FBN’s Happy Hour, refusing to disclose that his company is being investigated by the SEC. But a few days before that, Byrne was on FBN’s “Scoreboard,” where host David Asman gushingly referred to Byrne as a “Swashbuckling Captain of Capitalism.” [Read more]
In a recent show, America's favorite ex-jock-turned-opinion-maker, Sean Hannity discusses his disgust for New Yorkers tolerance of anti-christian propaganda, or as some people call it: common sense.
If you’ve been riding the New York City subway lately, you may have seen some curious ads plastered on the walls, spreading the word that you can live a great life without God. [Read more]
Since the Obama Administration took the offensive against Fox News - breaking the nationwide ban on telling the truth about Fox - many have vociferously complained. Ok, aside from Jake Tapper, the only ones complaining vociferously are Fox Newsians, but there has been some push back. [Read more]
HOLLYWOOD - Star Celebrity Noteworthy Savvy Handsome Journalist Jake Tapper today defended Druidism from any that would attack the ancient mythology.
“It’s escaped none of our notice that many have decided to declare one of our sister religions “not a real religion” and to tell the rest of us not to treat them like a real religion,” said Tapper. “How’s my hair?”
Tapper’s involvement in druidism dates back to college. Tapper’s dormitory roommate, Timothy Johnson, said Tapper had several unsettling habits. [Read more]
William K. Wolfrum released this statement to his supporters at 3 p.m.
"Having seen the love and admiration pouring from Conservative circles following Newt Gingrich's conversion to Catholicism, I feel it is time for me to come forward with an admission - I am a Catholic. And I always have been. [Read more]
We all assumed that George W. Bush would spend the rest of his days clearing brush from his ranch in Crawford, Texas - much the way he spent his presidency. But because of global warming there is a world wide brush shortage and W has had to find other things to occupy his time. What you ask? I'm so glad you asked 'cause it's hilarious - he's become a motivational speaker!
That's right, for as little as $19 dollars you and your entire office can come hear our former fearless leader speak. Now that's a bargain! I don't know about you, but I'd like to go just to hear what he had to say.  [Read more]
Glenn Beck, America's favorite blathering talk show host, takes the time to discuss the evils of volunteerism. No, that's not a typo, in a painful 6 minutes he points out that Hollywood, the Obama Administration, and the media are trying to make people "work for free" by encouraging them to volunteer. He then points to Chairman Mao, who is in studio btw, and comments on how the push to get Americans volunteering is communist.  [Read more]
FORT COLLINS, Colo. — The parents accused of concocting a publicity stunt by pretending their young son had climbed aboard a homemade helium balloon and was hurtling through the Colorado skies will surrender to the authorities as soon as charges are filed, the lawyer for the father said Monday. [Read more]
In interest of full disclosure, I love to drink. I am in no way an unbiased party when discussing alcohol and alcohol consumption. Happy hour is not just a phrase, it’s the happiest hour of my day.
So when I heard of the World Health Organization (WHO) is launching a campaign to reduce alcohol consumption worldwide, I was not very happy about it. The WHO claims that the negative effects of alcohol impact a growing amount of people throughout the world. Obviously, the WHO has never had my patented Bugs Bunny (vodka and carrot juice) that improves ocular health or my Mao Tse Yum (ginseng tea and gin) that increases mental cognition.
My concerns with the WHO’s campaign are as follows: [Read more]
While I find it difficult to dislike Oprah Winfrey overall, her love of pseudoscience has often grated and seemed dangerous. And now, Oprah’s love of pseudoscience has killed three people and left nearly two dozen others needing serious medical help. And that’s a little more serious.

WASHINGTON — In a press conference by the nation’s business leaders and a smattering of government officials, it was announced that everything bought over the past seven years has been immediately recalled, and that all personal information held by all businesses had been lost.
“If we can just get everyone to form an orderly line outside of every store they’ve purchased things from, that would just be great,” said a government official. [Read more]
So last Sunday I was thinking: could Chris Berman be a political talking head in this country? And would he be any worse than the natterers on cable news, or the morning shows? I mean, Berman is clearly a silly and shallow blowhard, but that never stopped Tim Russert.
My suspicion, fully borne out this week by l'affaire Limbaugh, is that sports are treated far more seriously in this country than politics are, especially by our media. That a comment on the state of our political press and on our national priorities. [Read more]
In early August, I began working on a book to document a growing sense of paranoia among right-wing conservatives. At the time, the media was fairly quiet on the subject. With the exception of liberal blogs (ahem), no one paid much attention to the wild rhetoric of the tea parties and occasional paranoid outbursts from commentators like Rush Limbaugh and politicians like Michelle Bachman. Then Sarah Palin loosed her "death panels" broadside, and the floodgates opened. [Read more]
