So O.J.’s in trouble again, big surprise.  A little older, a little less wiser.  I missed Rush this morning so I wasn’t able to hear his jowly booming tenor but I did manage to read the transcript on the O.J. arrest after surfing over to his website.  I enjoy the confused and irritated glances I get from the regulars at Crema  (my local coffee shop) when I download the Rush Limbaugh website.   I can just image the bewilderment running through these concerned liberal brains, “But she doesn’t look like a conservative lunatic…”  Anyway, I digress.  So the gravy is this.  Rush personally appealed to O.J. and offered his suggestion for a defense by saying that O.J. call it cultural.  It’s a cultural thing, you know, waving guns around at people.   Ha ha,  Rush made a funny.  Actually, I thought it was kinda funny.  Does that make me  a conservative asshole?  Well, I’m not!  Really.

Mike Savage and Ralph Nader…Batman and Robin?

Posted on September 13, 2007. Filed under: bizarre news, conservative, entertainment, humor, liberal, life, media, politics |

Yesterday I tuned into the Savage Nation after taking the rest of the summer off from my little blog project here only to hear Mike Savage politely introducing Ralph Nader with respect and humility and I have to say I was pretty blown away. Has our political environment become so polarized that the extreme left and the extreme right are now close enough to hold hands?

It’s interesting to note that Nader was on the Savage Nation promoting his new memoir and not necessarily invited to discuss politics although they did talk a little about how they agreed that having Mexican trucking companies gaining access to U.S. highways is a bad idea. They also briefly commiserated on the fact that a third party is distinctly lacking from American politics. None of this was a surprise to me knowing Savage’s libertarian leanings and Nader’s Green Party affiliation (which Savage admitting having “problems” with in an uncharacteristically non-confrontational manner for a man who regular uses the term “verminous liberal scum”).

Being a person who enjoys all things strange this broadcast was truly bizarre for several reasons. First, why was Nader on the show in the first place? Can you think of any Nader supporter that regularly listens to the Savage Nation? Can you think of any Savage listener that takes Nader seriously? What made Savage hold back any critique of Nader and his left-wing politics? Not only was he just super nice to the old bachelor he praised his efforts in consumer rights and for being a man of integrity. And what about Ralph? Does he know who Mike Savage is? Does he know that his millions of listeners deplore all things liberal? Are these two men just dedicated to self-promotion to the extent that they can put aside their political differences just to get themselves heard? Or is something weirder going on? Has corporate America made everyone so sick that even mortal enemies can come together in order to spear the beast? Stranger things have happened for sure.

“World Have Your Say” tiptoes towards farce

Do you remember way back when you were in college and you were forced to take that stupid senior seminar class in order to graduate? Remember it really didn’t have much point except to force you into class with people you hadn’t seen in four years just to discuss irrelevant politically correct bullshit? Remember that girl from that class who doesn’t ever shut up and she just keeps talking and offering her unending sermon on how the world is just so unfair and how everyone needs a break and how if everyone just spent a month hand feeding starving babies in Uganda like she did last semester that the world would be a better place? Well, in case you’ve forgotten how craptastic that class was tune into the BBC’s “World have your say.” Not every city in the US is graced with this waste of bandwidth-but Portland is! Yeah!

Now why would a respectable news organization like BBC numb my brain with over-excited, comically British hosts discussing the recent cock-fighting ban in Louisiana?! Big world news item, folks. Move over Iraq and Osama-we gots us a big story here! But it’s not just a story, folks. We got Johnny-two-teeth straight outta the bayou and he’s mad as hell that his cocks got done and banned and we got Ronny-do-gooder from the big city who thinks chickens should have equal rights and they’re gonna go at it on international radio and we’re gonna show the world how America’s talking about chickens with knives strapped to their ankles while the rest of the world goes to hell!

Normally I’m immune to conspiracy theories, but I wouldn’t be surprised to find out if Hamas had orchestrated this entire broadcast…and liberals wonder why conservatives make fun of them…
