From THINK PROGRESS:

Late last week, the Ben Quayle for Congress campaign released a new YouTube video featuring the young Republican blasting the government for supposedly “loading massive debt on the backs of Americans so the politicians can keep spending money on their agenda.”

The video begins with Quayle saying that, while “numbers can be boring, every American can and must understand the numbers I’m about to describe.” He warns that “America is today spending well over 14.5 trillion dollars a year”:

I Don’t Think They’re “Friends”

From THE IMPROPER:

Fox News loudmouth Bill O’Reilly is taking on actress Jennifer Aniston, claiming her recent remarks about motherhood are damaging to 12- and 13-year-olds who may get the idea that they don’t need a husband to start a family.

O’Reilly was reacting to recent comments by Aniston in which she said there’s nothing wrong with an unmarried woman wanting to raise a child without a man.

The Party of Personal Responsibility…except when it comes to accepting responsibility

From Greg Mitchell at Editor & Publisher:

NEW YORK (Commentary) In the months after the November election, and then gaining even more attention as Barack Obama became president, are charges that the media helped elect him by attacking, of mocking, Sarah Palin. Numerous pundits and conservative activists have alleged that she had given John McCain a big boost in the polls when first named and that she would have help drive him to victory if not for the later treatment by Katie and Tina and Charlie Gibson and all the rest.

But this is not true.

Why not make it a pig roast, too?

WHITE HOUSE (CNN) – Whoops! A picture of a Christmas tree is not the first thing you would expect to see on an invitation to an event celebrating Hanukkah, but that is exactly what recipients of invitations to this year’s White House Hanukkah reception initially got in the mail.

She’s not much of a ‘Lerner’ but she is pretty ‘Loewe”

Hey kids! Remember My Fair Lady? It’s a musical about Sarah Palin, a moronic governor of one of the least populated states Eliza, a poor flower girl. She’s uneducated and unsophisticated. Hell, she can barely form a proper sentence! Well, Captain Underpants Henry Higgins gives her a crash course in speech and manners in hopes of passing her off as vice president material a lady.

Original DVD cover.

To the tune of I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face, music by Frederick Loewe and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner, performed by Nat King Cole:

I want to punch her in the face,
Each time I see her stupid grin,
I’m tired of that same old tune,
She babbles night and noon,
Vladimir, so near,
She has no fear.

Droppin’ a Doocy

From Think Progress:

Discussing Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s (R) prospects as Sen. John McCain’s (R-AZ) running mate this morning on Fox and Friends, Brian Kilmeade said Sen. Joe Biden (D-DE) “is going to capitalize” in a debate with Palin because “she has no international relations experience, she’s not the chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee.” Co-host Steve Doocy then jumped in to try to set the record straight.

DOOCY: But the other thing about her, she does know about international relations because she is right up there in Alaska right next door to Russia
