It’s the Cocktail Party!!!

Makers Mark

There is no east coast/west coast. No Democrat party or Republican party. No black, white, Asian, Latino, etc. Quite frankly, I was flummoxed to learn that Mary Matalin and James Carville were married, as Matalin is the Republican and Carville the Democrat. In the Cocktail Party — courtesy of our friends at Makers Mark (straight Kentucky bourbon, y’all) — everyone come together.

Party differences aside, the Cocktail Party is for everyone, and Carville and Matalin would like to invite you.

A Tale of Two Californias

Whaaaaaaaat?????? No one saw this one coming. California is destined to the splitting of the state to make South California the 51st state.

No joke. There are two Virginias, two Carolinas, and two Dakotas. And now, two Californias. It is all thanks to Bill Maze, a termed-out Assembly member turned rebel, who wants to separate the liberals on the coast from the conservatives inland.

AFAIK, that’s an a-Maze-ingly dumb idea, but I live in Connecticut, NOT California.

Free Speech or Hate Speech?

The Supreme Court voted 8 to 1 in affirming the Westboro Baptist Church’s right to protest against homosexuality in military funerals last Thursday. But where do we draw the line when it comes to free speech? What have we learned from Don’t Ask Don’t Tell — a policy that prohibits homosexual or bisexual soldiers from serving openly in the military?

Westboro, a Topeka, Kans. based “church”, is known for spewing

Westboro Baptist Church protesters.

controversial signs held by their protesters. Signs such as “God Hates Fags,” “You’re Going to Hell,” and the like are just a few that raise more questions than they answer when discussing the freedom of speech. They’re supposed to be a “church”, yet they spread hate rhetoric like peanut butter on toast.

Does God hate anyone? No! While I cannot argue with the Supreme Court’s decision to green light Westboro on protesting against homosexuality, I think the free speech should stop when it hurts someone.

Angle to Reid: “Man Up”

Can you believe it?!? Sharron Angle lays the smackdown on Sen. Harry Reid’s ass by telling him to, “Man up.”

Um… excuse me, “MAN UP?!!” Get the eff out of here, man!

With his manhood in question (BTW he is more a man than I’ll ever be ’cause Sharron Angle scares the shit outta me), he’d need to bring in in former President Clinton and current President Obama to assist in his campaign. 

Woah…. Next time, Angs, opt for decaf.

Trump for President!?

I wish I were making this stuff up, but billionaire Donald Trump is considering running for President of the United States of America to oust current President Barack Obama. He will be the republican candidate vying for the nomination bid, and that means going against the self-proclaimed Mama Grizzly herself, Sarah Palin, aka the Thrilla from Wasilla.

But before he can do that, who does he need to fire? Here is Bill Maher’s take on Donald Trump running for President. (Video Courtesy of CNN)

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.

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.
