Hell on Wheels

It’s the 5oth anniversary of the Ford Edsel!

From the Washington Post:

Forget New Coke or the Susan B. Anthony dollar or the over-hyped Segway scooter or those pathetic dotcoms that went belly up in the late ’90s. The Edsel was the most colossal, stupendous and legendary blunder in the history of American marketing.

Hey, Washington Post! I think you forgot the Iraq War! On a happier note, kids, I think we found the official automobile of the Chimpy maladministration!!!

Original art.

You simply must read the article! Change Edsel to the Iraq War, and Ford to the Chimpy Administration. A perfect metaphor!

To the tune of Hey There, Lonely Girl written originally by Written by Earl Shuman & Leon Carr as Hey There, Lonely Boy, performed by Eddie Holman:

I’m a lonely guy, lonely guy,
I am so unhappy, I feel sick,

Shits and Giggles

Tuesday night on MSNBC Live with Dan Abrams, Dan, Joe Where-are-my-eyes Scarborough, and MotherTucker Carlson were discussing Sen. Larry Craig’s (R-IMNOTGAY) arrest for playing footsie in a public bathroom and eventual guilty plea. The three of them were sitting around in a scene reminiscent of Sex in the City, only with effete men who all probably pee sitting down. MotherTucker Carlson was trying to act all macho in front of his macho buddies and relayed a story about how he was once accosted in a men’s room and how he went and got his friend who accompanied him to the men’s room to beat up the offender. Oh, the giggles that ensued!!!! null Physcial violence in response to homophobia is sooooo funny!!!! You can see the clip over at Media Matters (for some strange reason, I can’t seem to find anything about it over at MSNBC!).
Poor MotherTucker Carlson! It must be tough being so desirable! I bet it will be even worse once he starts to shave!
