wasn’t goingg to pay attention, but the creativity on Twitter compels me to collect

Todd Dracula takes us to the movies

others, remembered Hole

as others focused more on 🍊

others looked at the (very) big picture

as others looked at the small numbers (46.4% now for 🍊)

Seinfeld Today did their thing

while others made a movie out of it (leaving the Blanche du Bois lighting behind)

and simple is sometimes effective

Someone please help me with the referrence here

I watched it on TV and Tweeter – and there were some beauties appearing on my page.

Podhoretz was feeling in hell –

Seriously. This is comedy Hiroshima.

The appearance of Yusuf Islam – now only Yusuf produced some great comments.

Harry Shearer wondered where his last name went.

Alahpundit noted

I’ve seen video of that British TV segment abt Rushdie on YouTube. Stevens/Islam had it pulled down re: copyright claim. I wonder why.
He finally found it

Here’s the video of Stevens/Islam on Rushdie: http://is.gd/guDMB

.@digby56 @atrios Don’t worry – at least his name’s not Mohammed http://is.gd/guDSN
It was Depressed Darth who had the best one
I bet Yusuf hates being called Cat Stevens as much as I hate being called Anakin
I answered that at least he didn’t drop the “Vader”
Keith Olberman got his wittle feelings hurt
It wasn’t a big shark but Jon Stewart jumped one just now with the “everybody on Thr cable is the same” naiveté
Later on he defends himself to a follower
@littleleaf2 when did I say I loved Jon?
Salon seems to agree

Has Jon Stewart jumped the shark?

This might be useful if even one right winger gave a damn. Essentially he’s just telling the left to pipe down. They sure won’t.

Interesting Stewart and the White House echo the same critique of 24/7 news cycle. But isn’t that a function of blogs and online community?
Later on he tweets

Sort of amazing how far the irony/earnestness pendulum has swung back towards irony after just 2 years.

@DavidCornDC when are you going to start taking shots at the DNC for failing to get the base worked up instead of whining about the rally?

Midterm zeitgeist captured in 2 rallies: Beck/Palin claim monopoly on honor, faith & country while #rally4sanity does medley of SNL outtakes

Tragic fact: Sanity really right about where it was before 11 this morning.

Me, I was ecstatic about The Corbomite maneuver.

Tom Tomorrow does it again!

Chuck may have become the sensible woodchuck instead of the sensible liberal, but the cat food commission got its due

Some of my favorite panels:

for mentioning William Shatner

for making it clear it’s the POTUS commission

and for the cat food thinghy at the end

Of course, none of it comes even close to vast left’s

I have never been a fan of Tom Tomorrow. I don’t remember him being that lucid in 2008.

This however is one of those just right moments

Meet Chuckles, the Sensible Woodchuck

Complete with Bobotland woodchucks who fail to see what’s so funny

19. The joke is on you. Our political environment will never be the

utopia you dream of. Welcome to reality. You’re welcome.

I especially love this panel

Although, there’s nothing wrong with this one either

and this B0botland comment complete with new signature might make me change names

28. ChucklesUnderground

LOL! :rofl:
Rendition, Troop Escalation, Predator Drone Strikes, Wiretapping

They even asked – and one offered – a Chuckles avatar

10 minutes – the duration of the first meeting with McChrystal

Their first one-on-one meeting took place in the Oval Office four months later, after McChrystal got the Afghanistan job, and it didn’t go much better. “It was a 10-minute photo op,” says an adviser to McChrystal. “Obama clearly didn’t know anything about him, who he was.

20 minutes the duration of the first meeting with BP executives

President Obama also took part for 20 minutes at the start of the meeting. It was Obama’s first face-to-face confrontation with Hayward and BP chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg since the environmental disaster in the Gulf of Mexico began 57 days ago. Vice

20 minutes the duration of the last meeting with McChristal

And then, finally, the president ended General McChrystal’s command in a meeting that lasted only 20 minutes.

I have been wondering about that pattern. Finally, The Onion to the rescue! It explained everything to me

Obama’s Weekly Video Addresses Becoming Increasingly Avant-Garde

Hailed as a sign of renewed government transparency when they began airing last year, President Barack Obama’s weekly video addresses have grown increasingly experimental in recent weeks, raising eyebrows nationwide.Videos like the one that aired Tuesday morning, which begins with Obama outlining his new plan to provide healthier school lunches to the nation’s children, but soon devolves into frantic editing, unsettling imagery, and dissonant audio effects, have left many wondering about the president’s ultimate message.

Silly us!

My work speaks for itself,” Obama said as he applied blackface makeup to prepare for the shooting of a new video called Ask/Tell/Die. “I can’t tell the people of our great nation what to think or how to react. That’s up to the viewer.

Silly B0bots! All this time you were trying to learn multidimensional chess.

Said Kirk to Spock in The Carbomite Maneuver:

Not Chess, Spock. Poker.”

Said The Onion to the bewildered nation: Not chess, nation. Art. Avant-garde,.

Update

Psst! B0bots! Lay of it already!

Three-Dimensional Chess

With one move, President Obama was able to:

1. Get rid of McChrystal

2. Demote Petraeus (he was head of CentComm, now he’s a field General again)

3. de-fang any criticisms the right could have over the McChrystal firing

4. Remove a possible 2012 opponent.

5. boost troop morale

Damn… he’s better at this than even *I* thought.

That ought to be a whole lot of “better”.
