This sounds like a Flight of the Conchords skit, it’s so hilariously absurdist. Wonder how his fellow comrades feel about this moron blundering around next to them. New-Zealand English teacher-turned-terrorist Mark Taylor, who shot into the public eye last year after publicly burning his Kiwi passport and then asking for a new one has blundered […]

Margaret Thatcher – As It Happens

I waited for hours yesterday to hear Billy Bragg’s reaction to Thatcher’s death. (He’s in Calgary and slept through all the cell phone messages relaying the news.)  Not disappointed in the final word, courtesy of As It Happens. Margaret Thatcher allowed cynicism and greed to come out from under its ugly stone and become part […]

Palins TV series a stage for political future? – Yahoo! News

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20101113/ap_en_tv/us_palin_s_alaska As if I didn’t hate her enough already, imagine my disappointment when I realised the Palin hosting this new TV show was Sarah, not Michael. In a promo for the show with a montage of outdoor scenes, she says, “I’d rather be doing this than in some stuffy old political office” and “I’d rather […]

Catching sharks by kayak | Pictures

http://www.theage.com.au/multimedia/environment/catching-sharks-by-kayak/20101106-17idg.html This guy will be EATEN one day, and the world will read, forward and repost his maudlin obit (Two young children! Life of an adventurer!) instead of the inevitable Darwin Award. To quote from a classic film, “SHARK! BAIT! OOH! HA! HA!”

Palins Reasons for Stepping Down | 44 | washingtonpost.com

http://voices.washingtonpost.com/44/2009/07/03/palins_remarks_in_stepping_dow.html?wprss=44 Sarah Palin’s remarks from today’s announcements, as taken from her website. I’m surprised someone had the forethought to remove the 😉 and LOLs, though the remaining text does give the impression it was written by one of her pre-teen daughters. In the words of General MacArthur said, “We are not retreating. We are advancing […]

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090703/ap_on_re_us/us_palin_resigning_25 Sarah Palin “resigns” (like she won’t come back in an even more annoying venue – talk show, anyone?), citing one of the least coherent political arguments ever: She said she had decided against running for re-election as Alaska’s governor, and believed it was best to leave office even though she had two years left […]

Pat Robertson – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pat_Robertson The flipside of Walter Cronkite is Pat Robertson. I had to look him up because I couldn’t remember if he was the annoying televangelist who’d died while I was newsless in Europe. (Sadly, no – it was the equally offensive Jerry Falwell.) Instead of a national treasure, Robertson’s a national disgrace, and avuncular only […]

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090612/ap_en_tv/us_tv_palin_letterman_25 Sarah Palin: Letterman owes women an apology If apologies are in order, I think Sarah Palin owes women one too. She’ll take any opportunity to grab a spotlight, even if it makes her look like an even bigger ass.
