To Mic(hel)e (and) (Bach)mann

From the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, appearing Tuesday night on Fox News’ show with Sean Hannity and Alan Colmes, derided President-Elect Barack Obama as “more of the same” over reports that many of his new appointments are recycled Clintonistas.

The Minnesota Republican also accused DFL Senate candidate Al Franken of trying to “stuff the ballot box” in his recount struggle with GOP incumbent Norm Coleman.

All the while, Bachmann managed to reserve enough ammo to dismiss as an “urban legend” reports that she had suggested on a pre-election episode of the “Hardball” show with MSNBC host Chris Matthews that Obama and other members of Congress were “anti-American,” and that the media should investigate them as such.

Kids, do you like movies about bloviators?

Chris Matthews in his own words and up his own ass (via Media Matters):

“I think a lot of people pick a president they figure would sort of like them if they knew them. And if you are overweight or have a problem with your diet — and I certainly did for years — you may figure Hillary doesn’t like people like me. She’s looking down on me. What do you think? Howie, she’s looking down on me, that woman. She thinks she’s better than me.”

No, Tweety, people don’t dislike you because of your fat ass. They dislike you because of your fat mouth.

When Good Toons Go Bad

Kids, I hope you are sitting down, because this is shocking news, via the Associated Press:

Tweety, Donald Duck Summoned to Court
ROME (AP) — Tweety may get a chance to take the witness stand and sing like a canary. An Italian court ordered the animated bird, along with Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and his girlfriend Daisy, to testify in a counterfeiting case.

What is this world coming to? Is the Disney Corporation so cheap that its employees have to counterfeit money in order to survive? Do cartoon characters like Italian food? Who else is involved? Why is Chris Tweety Matthews hanging out with Donald Duck, Mickey Mouse, and Daisy? So many questions. So few answers. So much tragedy.

Tony Snow in His Own Turds…I Mean Words

Faux News White House Press Secretary Tony Snow did quite a tap dance today while trying to defend Attorney General Alberto Gonazles. He said that Al Fredo did not lie about his visit to the ailing then-Attorney General John Ashcroft, but he can’t tell us how he didn’t lie because what was spoken about was classified. Huh? If it was classified, then didn’t Al Fredo and then-White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card break the law when they spoke about classified stuff in an unsecured hospital room? I’m confused, Tony!!

Just for the Halibut

Chris Matthews, host of MSNBC’s Slimeball Spitball Hardball, gave right-wing harridan, Ann Coulter, the entire hour to spew her venomous hate speech. Here’s a short synopsis from Media Matters:

Summary: Chris Matthews asked pundit Ann Coulter, “How do you know that Bill Clinton is gay?” — referring to her comment the night before on CNBC’s The Big Idea that Clinton “show[s] some level of latent homosexuality.” Coulter responded, “I don’t know if he’s gay. But Al Gore — total fag.” In concluding the interview, Matthews said of Coulter, “We’d love to have her back.”
