muppet show update

Steve Benen: … former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, whose 2008 presidential campaign was remarkable in its ineptitude, hasn’t ruled out trying again. “My major goal is to elect a Republican in 2012,” he said over the weekend. “If it turns out that I’m the best one to do that, I can probably be talked into doing it or convince myself to do it.”

Washington Post: Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich will announce his plans to pursue the presidency in 2012 on Wednesday, according to spokesman Rick Tyler.

President Obama reacts to the news:

    The combination of those two pictures is priceless. And I can’t wait to see who lines up to convince Rudi to run!

    And the news media continues to be in overdrive in an attempt to tamp down all that praise and admiration President Obama has been receiving. Boehner is Matt Lauer’s featured guest for the Today Show tomorrow and MTP, in keeping with their All Repub All The Time format, announced that Gingrich will be their featured guest next week. Our corporate media sure likes to give those Repubs lots of air time to share their “deep” thoughts. They don’t even try any more to appear to be “fair and balanced”.

    Afternoon, Ms. Chip

    I continue to LOVE the characterization of the Republicans as: “The Muppet Show”.

    Regarding this piece which, like PBO’s pic, had me doin’ the exACT same thing, a phrase came to mind my friends and I, and perhaps, some other older American black folk would use for JUST such a circumstance…

    “You ain’t right, girl”.

    Now, you have to appreciate the visual. And, I guarantee pretty much all the TODers will respond in the same way. So, as you have done here, and often do, you have delivered both a TRUTHFUL and BITING verbal and VISUAL decimation of an opponent. The result is peels and whoops of uncontrolled laughter and tears. Much like we see PBO doing. And, between struggling trying to get breath, that phrase is uttered.

    It is bestowed with HIGHEST compliment.

    And, I look forward to you not bein’ “right” for many years to come.

    Ms. Chip, you ain’t right, girl!

    And, this is STELLAR!!!!!!

      Love, love, love it Blackman! I’m going to proudly tell everyone I know “I ain’t right” …. they’ll probably agree, before I explain to them it’s a completely stellar compliment! 😆

      What happen to Bristol stupid Mother? I probably shouldn’t have said that.

        Given the other post about women being airbrushed out of all pictures, Bristol’s mother would lose the only “advantange” that she’s got… in the eyes of some. I swear, the ugly inside is definitely seeping out of that woman and showing up on the outside.
