The black Caribou Barbie
Of course, that reminded me of this old poster:
And that got me thinking that
Herb Hermie deserved his own action figure. Maybe he and Princess Sarah Palin will be hosting a show togther over at Faux News one day, and we don’t want Caribou Barbie’s doll to be lonely.
From am new york:
Get ready for a big surprise.
Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes did not hire Sarah Palin as an on-air commentator because of her lacerating wit or insight into domestic and foreign affairs.
“I hired Sarah Palin because she was hot and got ratings,” Ailes, 71, said of the former vice presidential candidate in an interview with the Huffington Post published Wednesday.
Yeah, kids, I know what you’re saying–Roger Ailes is a misogynistic pig. You might take that back, though, when you find out that he hired Glenn Beck for the same reasons!
From THE TICKET at YAHOO! NEWS:
When NBC’s Brian Williams asked former Gov. Mitt Romney at the most recent Republican presidential debate if he considers himself “a member of the tea party,” it may have been the toughest question of the night.
As anyone who aligns himself with the small-government movement will tell you, the question was overly simplistic–the tea party is more of an intellectual concept than an actual centralized organization–but Williams’ question clearly struck a nerve. It was one of the only questions during the debate that Romney hesitated before answering, and his meandering response took far more time and effort than what some of his contenders would have expended in the same exchange. Herman Cain, for instance, probably would have whistled by the query and just said, “Yes.”
From Dana Milbank at POST OPINIONS at The Washington Post:
Yes, [Rick] Perry is passionately anti-government, or at least anti-this-government. But the man who suddenly tops the Republican presidential polls is no libertarian. Rick Perry is a theocrat.
And he’s not the only one. I’m lookin’ at you
Botox Batshit Michele Bachmann and Princess Sarah Palin!
From the Los Angeles Times:
Sarah Palin still isn’t running for president, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t still want to stir up the race.
In a Tuesday appearance on Fox News, the former Alaska governor and 2008 GOP vice-presidential nominee took Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney to task for his silence during the recent debt-limit debate in Washington, accusing him of being a finger-in-the-wind politician.
“Bless his heart, I have respect for Mitt Romney, but I do not have respect for what he has done through this debt-increase debate,” Palin told host Sean Hannity.
Who knew that rats meowed?!
From Howard Kurtz at Newsweek:
The inquiry was grinding on, and Rupert Murdoch looked exhausted when he had trouble remembering what he’d said when he appeared with his loyal aide Rebekah Brooks. “I walked outside my flat,” Murdoch said, “and I had 20 microphones stuck in my mouth.”
That, of course, is the kind of hot pursuit his tabloids routinely employ against elusive celebrities. In the twilight of his career, Murdoch has gone from the hunter to the hunted, brought low by the crass culture he helped create.
And yet even in his apologetic testimony, the 80-year-old mogul couldn’t resist a shot at rivals with “dirty hands” for trying to “build this hysteria.” That theme has echoed across News Corp.’s many media outlets as it tries to turn the corner on the phone-hacking scandal. The empire, it would seem, is starting to strike back.
