Colbert, Christie, Climate & Christian Hypocrisy

(Ed note: I know the image above is not of a cow. It was the perfect image for today's show, where nothing is as it should be. Welcome to Opposite World, Bizarro World, or the world where a cow looks like a horse.) Let's begin with Colbert. Last week, Stephen Colbert showed what real satire is, and the right wing nuts in this country proved they haven't got a clue. Colbert pointed out the complete insincerity and blatant racism of Dan Snyder, the guy who owns the NFL team based in Washington DC, with this bit (starts at the 8:31 [...]

Wars, Lies, and Videotape

***Update added -- scroll down*** The only thing missing was the sex.  We learned a few things this week: War is NOT the way to combat terrorism.

That may be free speech, but it's not without consequences." You'll notice [...]

Rush Limbaugh is a Drug-Addled Racist Douchebag Pig

Did I say that clearly enough? Thanks to the good folks at Media Matters, who actually sit through his show so we don't have to, I've assembled a few of his comments which prove my initial statement. The man is a card carrying, no doubt about it, full blown racist.  All that's missing is the white hood.  It's probably in his gold plated closet along with his viagra.
