Today’s Quickies and…Rocket Babies

Levi Johnston is kind of an ass. Look, if you’re gonna scummily dish on your sex life, go all the way.  Be like, “Tyra, I always thought those Penthouse letters were made up…”

But seriously, dude! Your son is going to see that some day.

This is only funny in the abstract:  Rocket fuel in baby formula.  Aside from the obvious jokes, the article actually says this: “The formula also contains a compound that can counteract the rocket fuel chemical’s effects.”  I’ve never heard of simultaneous food poisoning and unpoisoning.

Rush Limbaugh Slam Poetry.

This site can suck it!

This headline sounds like a Wall Street Journal article written by Dr. Seuss.

I have a follower named Kristy Kaleal now.  Is she related to Superman?

Good day to be gay.

Obama is effin’ funny. “OBAMA TO CEOS: I’M “THE ONLY THING BETWEEN YOU AND THE PITCHFORKS”  Classic.

Cyberstalk Rahm Emanuel.

Ward Churchill wins a dollar.

Tenacious D meets Conchords meets Fellini.

You can’t breathe in Jello.

Quickies and…Mmmm…Squeeze Bacon

Caleb sent me this.  I don’t know how I feel about it.  Bacon is awesome.  Things that are supposed to be bacon, or bacon-y?  Not so much.  Update:  It is actual bacon.  I’m on board.

Birfers birth a new, weirder conspiracy:  Obama made up the controversy to distract everyone from…all the shit they wrote about anyway.  This is progress.

Allahpundit has a sickening Limbaugh story, and O’Reilly defending Rush on Letterman.  He also gets fished in by the iPod joke.

Tonight’s homework:  The GOP budget alternative.

From OhHellNawl: A prom dress for optimistic girls.

Weird.  I just called the RNC today about the clothes, and now, Todd is talking about them. He’s right, of course, the RNC went way overboard.  You don’t need even a dollar-fifty to make Palin look good.

Isn’t dissing Crocs so 5 minutes ago?

Yeah, EFF married people!

If you like TV, read this guy every day.

Redstate gets compared to a militia by Crooks and Liars.  My takeaway?  Those bastards quote Erickson more than they quote me!

Give us your quickies in the comments.

Ebony Editor Responds to Rush Limbaugh: Get Out of the Office More

I had a chance to speak with Ebony Senior Editor Kevin Chappell, in response to criticism levelled at him by kevin_chappellRush Limbaugh.  You can see that at AOL here: Rush Limbaugh Slams Ebony Magazine Reporter

Tommy Christopher: Do you have any reaction to Rush Limbaugh’s criticism of your question at Tuesday’s news conference? Continue reading

Today’s Quickies

“Today’s” implies that there will be quickies on other days.  We’ll see how that works out.

Caleb cursed me with the habit-forming ROLcats.

Is Greta Van Susteren a Xenuvian sleeper agent?

Smokin’ Smarties is not about hot chicks in glasses.  (Watch the video)  Catharsis or conditioning?

Aww, ain’t Rush cute?

The world’s biggest neck.

Palin Robocallypse Now.

Chris Matthews Repeats Lie That Rush’s Ratings Have Doubled

As I reported Saturday, not only is the claim that “Rush Limbaugh’s ratings have doubled” since January a lie, the Washington Post’s source for that claim refused to even characterize his estimate as equivalent to an industry “rating.”

That hasn’t stopped the lie from spreading, of course.  On “The Chris Matthews Show” Sunday, the host repeated the claim to his panel.  Why wouldn’t he?  He read it in the Washington Post!

Clarence Page does a nice job of taking on the idea that even if true, it somehow means a gain for Republican obstructionism, making pretty much the same point I did.
