Trash Talk Radio

From the Los Angeles Times:

Why exactly is John Gibson still on the air?

Three days ago, the Fox News talk-show host opened his radio show with hate-filled, and prepared, mockery of actor Heath Ledger’s death. Auditory clips of Ledger’s most famous film, “Brokeback Mountain,” played with a background of funeral music, ending with his character’s lover, Jack Twist, saying, “I wish I knew how to quit you.”

“Well, he found out how to quit you,” Gibson chortled before launching into a show that repeatedly referenced the 28-year-old actor’s death as if it were some sort of joke.

Debate and Switch

The Florida water shortage was brought to an end when MSNBC anchor, Chris Matthews, spittled his way through an evening of presidential hopefuls bashing Democratic candidate, Hillary Clinton, in a Republican debate on the campus of Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton. Ooooh, Chris, smell that English Leather and Old Spice? Such manly men! The fragrance of testosterone wafting through the air! Okay, that was from Janet Huckabee, but still….
From MTV (yeah, I said MTV!!):

Unlike the Democrats at Monday’s contentious presidential debate, the Republican candidates spent more time piling on Senator Hillary Clinton than each other at Thursday night’s debate.

Tell me lies, tell me sweet little lies….

WASHINGTON (AP) — A study by two nonprofit journalism organizations found that President Bush and top administration officials issued hundreds of false statements about the national security threat from Iraq in the two years following the 2001 terrorist attacks.

The study concluded that the statements “were part of an orchestrated campaign that effectively galvanized public opinion and, in the process, led the nation to war under decidedly false pretenses.”

Oliver Stoned?

Yes, Oliver Stone is making a movie about Chimpy, and he has asked me to design the DVD cover!

Original DVD cover.
From The Celebrity Cafe:

Controversial filmmaker Oliver Stone announced this week that, once the Hollywood writer’s strike has ended, he would begin work on a film about George W. Bush, a project which would be tersely titled “Bush.”

Don’t worry, kids, when he sees the cover I made, he will change the title to GWB.

My mom can beat up your boyfriend!

MIAMI, Jan 21 (Reuters) – Republican John McCain threatened to call out his nonagenarian mother on Monday to get actor Chuck Norris to stop talking about him being too old to serve as president.

“I’m going to send my 95-year-old mother to just go over and wash Chuck Norris’ mouth out with soap,” McCain quipped at a new conference.

Trailer Trash

From the Washington Post:

Those trailers the Federal Emergency Management Agency bought to house Hurricane Katrina victims were at the center of the storm again yesterday — and not in a way that’s going to make folks at the beleaguered agency any happier.

FEMA hurriedly bought the 145,000 trailers and mobile homes via no-bid contracts just before and after Katrina hit the coast in August 2005. But the purchase quickly became problematic, with some communities refusing them for a variety of reasons.

FEMA was forced to put trailers on the market, selling them to anyone for 40 cents on the dollar.

Yesterday, however, the emergency agency offered to buy them back, for their original purchase price, because of concerns that the trailers are tainted with formaldehyde. The agency said it is making the offer because of concerns about “possible adverse health effects” associated with the trailers.

Mister Fix-it

From News Hounds:

Pat Robertson, who publicly endorsed Rudy Giuliani for president last fall, appeared on FOX and Friends to talk up his candidate this morning 1/17/08. Explaining why he supports Giuliani, he casually made mention that he expects Giuliani to make court appointments to his liking.

…snip…

Robertson supported Huckabee for governor of Arkansas, but Giuliani would be best suited for the job because he has experience in

“handling a complex organization.” He said Giuliani also “has experience in the Justice Department; he knows about judges. He’s got a good fix on who we want to put in.”

(video available at News Hounds)
Oh, Pat! You think you can fix things by erasing the separation between church and state, but the truth is…..
