Palin does stand-up

March 7th, 2010 by Ian

This title is not a joke. I’m a big Sarah Palin fan. Some people say she has no knowledge of politics, foreign countries, science and has a shoddy grip on the whole human experience. Those people tend to be elitists (British translation: people with three-figure IQs). It’s a shame she never made it to VP. God, I love fireworks. Now she’s finally found something that everyone can agree she’s good at: stand-up comedy. Dems, Republicans, Libertarians, gays, Muslims, Jews and people who hold up “Jebus hates fagurts” banners at protests could all come together and enjoy some Palin stand-up. I don’t think it’s simply the top-flight jokes she tells, but the delivery. As Frank Carson said: “It is. The way. That you tell. Them.” The right wing in this country is in dire need of a proper comic since Bernard Manning went to the giant pie shop in the sky and Jim Davidson finally disappeared up his own backside (erm, I think. Either that or he lives in the UAE). I think she’d be honoring both the ‘special relationship’ and the needs of the British comedy circuit if she came over here and did a tour. We love you Sarah!

Even news-bots v1.4, v2, and 1.9(f) on Fox news agree with me. Great catch from v1.4 there as well: Palin isn’t “Our own”, she’s simply a contributor, silly! (In the same way ‘tea parties’ are in no way organized by the Murdoch ‘massive’). Just remember: Only Rush Limbaugh can make jokes about retards, so don’t expect that sort of humor from Sarah.

It’s not Christmas until we get another Barney the Dog video

December 19th, 2008 by Ian

The worlds most universally hated man and serial bastard, President George Bush, has a dog called Barney. Barney has stared in many of his own videos and this Christmas is no exception. The reason for Barney taking such a role at Christmas is probably because despite his support of the war and attacking journos, he’s probably the least unpopular living entity in the Whitehouse.

His latest video is painful, obviously. It’s nice to see the Bush twins  in a less slutty pose for a change. Watching the Bush family ‘interact’ is undoubtedly cringe worthy but like all good train-wrecks, you’ve got to watch.

Barney and the Bush family; Maybe a white fluffy cat would be more fitting.

The thing that disappoints me, as a non-American, is that the production of the video is actually rather good. Well; not ‘telly good’ (maybe ITV), but Barney the dog receives definitely better video production than most of our British politicians.
