Newspaper Ad Hopes For Obama Assassination - I'm Not Joking, Believe Me I Wish I Was

The below ad appeared in the Warren Times Observer, a paper in Pennsylvania:

The Secret Service is investigating. But, here's a question, why would any newspaper agree to run such an ad? The publisher of the paper claims they didn't understand the sentiment of the ad. Really? That's the story the publisher is going with? I guess the publisher really can't say anything else . The publisher either has to claim ignorance or essentially say that they didn't think there was anything wrong with the ad. But, surely someone working at any newspaper would know what Presidents Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley and Kennedy have in common. Or maybe this publisher's ignorance is the exhibit "A" demonstrating why print media companies and newspapers in particular are going out of business.

Stay Fearful My Friends

He once had a nightmare so frightful that everyone sleeping within a 100 mile radius of him woke up screaming and afraid while he continued to sleep soundly.

When he tells a great, funny joke you don't laugh, you curl up in the corner of the room crying in the fetal position.

Dinosaurs didn't go extinct, they all committed mass suicide after he talked to them.

The grim reaper fears HIM.

He is........................

Those Below the Poverty Line Pay More for the Basics

This article illuminates what many already know, being poor has more disadvantages than most have ever considered. Consider the fact that those with less actually pay more for things that middle-class Americans, for the most part, take for granted. -article from the Washington Post-

Frivolous Giuliani Golf Lawsuit Booted Out of Court

There's been many an argument about frivolous lawsuits being filed, especially here in Texas, by those no-good trial attorneys. Well here's a story about a a frivolous lawsuit filed by a well-to-do youngster. I'd write "spoiled brat" but I don't know the kid personally, but, who else would file a lawsuit for getting kicked off the golf team at Duke for assault on a team member and insubordination?

Apparently, Rudy Giuliani's kid went to Duke and played for their golf team as a non-scholarship player. Then, he was kicked off the team. Next, he sued. Now, a magistrate judge has recommended that the suit be thrown out of court. In the opinion the judge mockingly used golf parlance and even quoted the classic comedy, "Caddy Shack". Essentially, the judge thought the suit lacked merit, in other words, it was frivolous.

People always point to the, "McDonald's coffee spilled in the lap" lawsuit as an example of a frivolous lawsuit. Well, the facts of that case might change your mind about it if you're one that thinks of it as frivolous. About the McDonald's coffee case I'll just state that there were 3rd degree burns, the injured person's lap, and skin grafts involved.

So much for frivolous lawsuits always being filed by ambulance chasing trial attorneys. Sometimes they're filed by the kids of former Republican presidential candidates. It should be interesting to hear Rudy Giuliani speak out against, "frivolous lawsuits," in the future given his son's adventures in the legal system.

I'm not sure but, someone please tell me that this is the same kid that acted like a brat up during a then-Mayor Giuliani's speech, a speech that was classically mocked by snl:

RNC Chairman Steele & GOP Trying Old Tricks

The RNC's chairman, Mr. Steele, rolled out some of the same talking points that McCain tried to use in last year's campaign. He referred to the celebrity of Obama, as well as a talking about "real Americans". Here's some of the speech if you're interested:

Lastly, and this is confusing, the RNC also has pending for a vote a resolution calling on the Democratic Party to rename/rebrand itself the "Democrat Socialist Party". To reiterate, the RNC is taking time and money to consider and vote on a resolution essentially asking the Democrats to change the name of their party. Brilliant. And remember, this is more of the same from last election when they attempted to brand Obama as a socialist.

Some claim or are worried that the Republicans have become the "No" party. Some are worried that all they do is call the Dems names and don't offer any tenable solutions to issues and problems that the nation faces. What is the GOP against, in other words what do they say "no" to? Here's an incomplete list of what many in the GOP are against:
1) gay rights
2) abortion
3) government regulation
4) immigration reform
5) health insurance reform
6) stem cell research
7) environmental law reform

Fewer and fewer people identify with the GOP and what they stand for or against. Maybe the GOP should change their name to the "White Male Christian Republican Party". I'm joking of course. But see, my joke illustrates the GOP's problem because it's exactly that, a joke. I'm making a joke by demanding or suggesting that the GOP change it's name. The GOP's problem is that the RNC is actually taking time and money to seriously consider whether it should "demand" that the Democratic Party change its name. That the GOP would take time and money to consider what amounts to official name calling of the opposing party isn't funny or a joke, it's just sad.

So Sarah Palin Is Writing a Memoir

Gov. Palin (AK) has announced her plans to release her memoir in 2010. I'll let you pick the punchline.

a) It's going to be released in two versions, coloring book or pop-up book.

b) Chapter 2: "How NOT to Teach Abstinence to Your Teen ".

c) Chapter 1: "The Beginning of the Universe, 6,000 Years Ago".

d) Chapter 3: "The Differences and Similarities In Answering Questions in a Beauty Contest Versus a Presidential Campaign (Miss California, I Feel Your Pain)".

e) Chapter 4: "How to Read ALL the Periodicals Released in Alaska".

f) Chapter 6: "A Guide to Shopping on the GOP Credit Card".

g) Chapter 7: "I Hate Katie Couric and Tina Fey".

h) Chapter 9: "How to Tell the Difference Between a Phone Call From the Real President of France and a Prank Call From a Montreal DJ".

i) Palin: "Do you think Ann Coulter will write it for me if I promise to be her best friend?"

j) If there's no ghostwriter an anonymous source says, "If Palin writes it herself all the "chapters" in the memoir are likely going to be more like paragraphs, and by paragraphs I mean more like sentences, and by sentences I mean more like phrases or sentence fragments." The same source reports that without a ghostwriter Sarah Palin has confessed, "It's not going to be so much a memoir, maybe more like a 3-fold-pamphlet. Gosh darn, writing is hard."
