Olbermann Tea Party Special Comment Video

QUOTES OF THE WEEK – “It’s going to entail a discussion with my family [and] a real close look at the lay of the land, and to consider whether there are those with that common sense, conservative, pro-Constitution passion, whether there are already candidates out there who can do the job, and I’ll get to be their biggest supporter and biggest help-mate, if they will have me. Or whether there’s nobody willing to do it, to make the tough choices and not care what the critics are going to say about you, just going forward according to what I believe the priorities should be. If there’s nobody else to do it, then of course I would believe that we should do this.” – Republican Sarah Palin explaining (threatening – my word) why she would run for the presidency in 2012.

“With all due candor, appearing on your own reality show on the Discovery Channel, I am not certain how that fits in the American calculus of ‘that helps me see you in the Oval Office’. Being the vice-presidential nominee on the ticket is different from saying ‘I want to be the person at the top of the ticket. There are high standards that the American people have for it [the presidency] and they require a certain level of gravitas, and they want to look at the candidate and say ‘that candidate is doing things that gives me confidence that they are up to the most demanding job in the world.'”” – Republican strategist Karl Rove criticizing Sarah Palin for appearing on her own reality show about Alaska.

“This is not a time for compromise, and I can tell you that we will not compromise on our principles. To the extent the president wants to work with us, in terms of our goals, we’d welcome his involvement.” – House Minority Leader John Boehner, who will likely be elected House Speaker if Republicans win control.

“Look, the time to go along and get along is over. House Republicans know that. We’ve taken firm and principled stands against their big government plans throughout this Congress, and we’ve got, if the American people will send them, we’ve got a cavalry of men and women headed to Washington, D.C. that are going to stand with us.” – Rep. Mike Pence (Ind.), the chairman of the House Republican Conference.


Apparently Meg Whitman’s new Hispanic voter strategy is “Fire ‘Em, F**k ‘Em, Send Their A**es Home” Meg Whitman Says Former Housekeeper Nicky Diaz Santillan Should Be Deported which, if recent polls are true, is pretty much how most California voters feel about her campaign.

I’m not a paid political pundit, nor do I play one on TV, but me thinks Karl Rove doesn’t think much of Tea Party Queen Sarah Palin Karl Rove Jabs Sarah Palin’s Reality Show: It Doesn’t Help People ‘See You In The Oval Office’, and unlike most Republican operatives, isn’t afraid to publicly criticize her.

I want Sarah Palin to run in 2012 more than I wanted to have one night with Pam Grier in 1975, but I doubt that she’ll actually risk devaluing her “brand” by running in a primary against a possible field of Mitt “Mormon Magic Underpants” Romney, Tim “I’m Not Just The President of the Hair Club for Men” Pawlenty, Newt “F**k ‘Em and Leave ‘Em” Gingrich, Haley “Boss Hogg Jr” Barbour, Rick “Clueless” Santorum and whatever other GOP wacko throws his or her hat into the ring (Mike “Jesus Asked Me To Be With You Tonight” Huckabee).

Even before the Cubs managerial job was filled, did anyone with the sense God gave a seedless grape really believe that Joe Girardi wasn’t going to sign a new deal with the Yankees?

Whatever goodwill and respect John McCain earned with his gracious concession speech on November 4, 2008 is long gone, never to resurface again.

The more things change, the more they remain the same: Clippers open the season 0-2.

Aretha Franklin is the greatest singer I’ve ever heard.

Brett Favre is the biggest drama queen in the history of team sports.

Bill Clinton is like the old boxer who just can’t stay retired.

Just in case you haven’t noticed, and judging by the low ratings you haven’t, Undercovers is still on NBC.

If Charlie Sheen actually killed someone and there were several credible witnesses along with a studio quality videotape of the slaying, would THAT be enough for CBS to finally fire him or would that depend on whom the victim was? I mean, who in their right mind takes a porn star/hooker on a “family vacation” with their kids? By the way, I can’t wait to see how SNL treats this tonight.

Tom Selleck’s range of emotions and facial expressions on his new CBS show, Bluebloods, run the gamut from A to B.

The more David Arquette talks, especially on the Howard Stern Show, the more I understand why Courtney Cox wants a divorce. Maybe she and Jennifer Anniston will get married now. Hey, a man can dream can’t he?

I wonder if Clarence has restored Ginny’s phone privileges yet.
