Comedy of Terrors

From The CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR:

Christine O’Donnell and Sarah Palin: Top 5 comedic comparisons

What do Christine O’Donnell and Sarah Palin have in common?

You mean, aside from the obvious? “Just give [O’Donnell] bangs and a pair of rimmed glasses and she’d be a dead ringer for…” Jon Stewart said on his show, flashing side by side photos of the two women after O’Donnell’s victory in the Delaware Senate primaries last week.

Political commentators can’t resist the comparison, not just on where O’Donnell and Palin stand on the issues, but in other aspects as well, especially considering Sarah Palin’s endorsement and mentoring of what many are calling her own “Mini-me.”

Why should comedians be any different?

Why did my doctor just take my temperature with a meat thermometer?

From the NEVADA APPEAL:

RENO — U.S. Senate candidate Sue Lowden said Thursday that Harry Reid is trying to make her look bad over remarks suggesting a return to the barter system with doctors.

“Harry Reid is trying to change the subject from his 2,700 pages of government-run health care,” she said after a breakfast meeting in Reno.

Lowden became a top story nationwide last week after Democratic Party figures, cable news shows, bloggers and even Jay Leno ridiculed her so-called “Chickens for Checkups” plan.

Chicken Wingnut

From THE HUFFINGTON POST:

Sue Lowden, a Republican candidate challenging Majority Leader Harry Reid for his Nevada Senate seat is refusing to back down from an earlier suggestion that America consider a medical barter system as an alternative to current health care solutions.

On Monday Lowden took the idea one step further.

“Before we all started having health care, in the olden days, our grandparents, they would bring a chicken to the doctor,” Lowden told a local news station. “They would say I’ll paint your house.”

If we could only breed chickens who are delicious and who could paint houses, that would be perfect!

All Other Grifters Palin Comparison

From THE HUFFINGTON POST:

Sarah Palin aligns her public image with the heartland, but it appears the former Alaska Governor has gone Hollywood. And when she leaves, she may be taking some of it with her.

On top of an appearance on the Tonight Show and rumors that she’s shopping around a TV show with reality producer Mark Burnett, Palin and her entourage were seen partaking in one of celebrity’s lushest rituals — the Oscar gifting suite.

While the group was loading up on freebies, the Los Angeles Times reported that, “Palin’s middle child, Willow, got her hair styled […].”

You kids know how I’m always anxious to help.  I’ve already thought of a name for Princess’s reality show!

Not Haiti, Just Hate

From MEDIA MATTERS:

As the full scope of the devastation in Haiti was just beginning to be understood Wednesday, MSNBC and CNN devoted extensive coverage to the crisis, including during their primetime coverage. Fox News did cover the aftermath of the earthquake in its dayside programming, but the Three Musketeers — Beck, O’Reilly and Hannity — couldn’t be bothered.

Beck devoted his entire show to an interview with Sarah Palin. He didn’t mention Haiti once but instead chose to read her his diary. To be fair, Beck’s interview may have been taped prior to the Haiti crisis, but he certainly wasn’t obligated to air it Wednesday. It’s not as if Fox News viewers won’t hear her views now that she’s a Fox News contributor.
