Grin and Colbert It

Stephen Colbert (in character, no less!) gave his opening statement before a Subcommittee panel Friday during a hearing on illegal immigration, border security, and citizenship. He explained his involvement with the United Farm Workers campaign to put agricultural jobs into the hands of unemployed Americans.

Did he break a leg? Or did he break someone’s heart?

Not everyone was easily amused by Colbert’s shtick. Utah GOP Rep. Jason Chaffetz, a member of the House Judiciary Subcomittee, called Colbert’s testimony “sad” and “unfortunate.”  Ouch! All them haters had their 15 seconds of fame; but in the end, Colbert got the last laugh.

Jersey Shored

I can’t believe this shit. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie lashed out on a heckler during Meg Whitman’s gubernatorial campaign in California. That heckler turned out to be Ed Buck, who shouted at her only to be laid the smackdown on his… well, that’s a whole ‘nother office. Anyway, take a look at the video and you fuckers guys’ll know what I mean:

Seriously, dude, grow the hell up. You are the governor of New Jersey. This is California. Shouldn’t you be smart enough to know better than to insult the intelligence — or lack thereof — of you supporters? I sure as hell hope so.

Fallin’ For Fall

The memories of summer slowly fade away as peals of brown, orange, and red fill the air. Dunkin’ Donuts started selling hand-held apple pie as well as the pumpkin muffin. The scents of cinnamon and french vanilla are taking over. Yep, fall is here.

It's apple picking time!

Apple picking, hay rides at the county fair, the World Series underway, freshed baked pumpkin pie (or sweet potato pie if you’re in the South), and that crisp, autumnal chill are just a few reminders of fall. Those and football. Enjoy it while it lasts, because, the *shudders* Christmas stuff is hitting stores soon. Seriously… why can’t we go through Halloween without having to listen to “Jingle Bells” blasting out of a 250,000 megahertz subwoofer?

Stewart v. Colbert

David v. Goliath. The Crips v. The Bloods. Yankees v. Red Sox. Democrats v. Republicans. Coke v. Pepsi. These all have one thing in common… they’re rivals. Why not add Stewart v. Colbert to the list?

Jon Stewart made his big announcement on The Daily Show Thursday night, to distill the anger that polluted the air from the 15-to-20-percenters, and stand up for the majority. His campaign “The Rally to Restore Sanity,” will take place on Saturday October 30, 2010, on the steps of the National Mall in Washington, D.C. It’s an attempt to restore reasonableness…um, if that’s even a word. His message is pretty simple: Take it down a notch… for America.

Stephen Colbert, however, made a counter-announcement on his show, “The Colbert Report,” (the “t” is silent on both words) on the “March to Keep Fear Alive,” also taking place in the nation’s capital on the same day as Stewart’s rally. Rather than taking it down a notch, Colbert vowed to “notch it up a skoach (sic).” He added that the government wants you to be scared and are trying to kill you. “‘Reason’ is just one letter away from ‘treason’,” Colbert said.

Why does it have to be an even-numbered year?

Meat Dress?

With her concert coming to the XL Center in Hartford tonight, Lady Gaga wore an outfit to MTV’s Video Music Awards this past Sunday, and it had everyone talking… even after the show. Her dress is made out of — don’t start laughing yet — raw meat. Yes, you heard me correct. Raw meat.

Kinda makes you wonder: how much meat has been used to make this kind of dress? And how much did it cost?

P.Nut Butter

Move over, Bow Wow. P.Nut, only seven years old, makes his debut in the rapping industry beyond Memphis. And the best part? He’s been rapping since he was four years old!

“Indepednence” Day

While we’re on the subject of sneaky misspellings, the sign on the overhead of Interstate 277 outside Charlotte reads “Indepednence Blvd.” You can’t make this mess up.

This sign should read INDEPENDENCE Blvd.
