It Continues …

26 Sep

David Letterman continued beating up on John McCain last night. Enjoy!

Sorry to go all politics all the time all of a sudden, but this short clip of Sarah Palin’s recent interview with Katie Couric was just too good to let slide. If you support this woman, I’d like to know why. She can barely answer a question.

And just in case you missed it, here’s a transcript of the clip. (Thanks to David Poland.)

COURIC: You’ve cited Alaska’s proximity to Russia as part of your foreign policy experience. What did you mean by that?

PALIN: That Alaska has a very narrow maritime border between a foreign country, Russia, and on our other side, the land– boundary that we have with– Canada. It– it’s funny that a comment like that was– kind of made to– cari– I don’t know, you know? Reporters–


PALIN: Yeah, mocked, I guess that’s the word, yeah.

COURIC: Explain to me why that enhances your foreign policy credentials.

PALIN: Well, it certainly does because our– our next door neighbors are foreign countries. They’re in the state that I am the executive of. And there in Russia–

COURIC: Have you ever been involved with any negotiations, for example, with the Russians?

PALIN: We have trade missions back and forth. We– we do– it’s very important when you consider even national security issues with Russia as Putin rears his head and comes into the air space of the United States of America, where– where do they go? It’s Alaska. It’s just right over the border. It is– from Alaska that we send those out to make sure that an eye is being kept on this very powerful nation, Russia, because they are right there. They are right next to– to our state.

Jews for Obama!

This clip is NSFW and not kid-friendly either, so watch when you can turn this up and hear every word. Join me and Sarah Silverman on the Great Schlep. Get your bubby to vote for Barack Obama!

Where’s McCain?

25 Sep

I love David Letterman. Check out this clip from last night’s show. McCain was supposed to be Dave’s guest, but he bailed at the last minute, leaving Dave scrambling and not the least bit happy.

“Hey John, I’ve got a question: Do you need a ride to the airport?” Wow … Dave’s true colors really came out during the show, and he replaced McCain with my boy, Keith Olbermann. Continue reading

Best. Campaign. Slogan. Ever.

Just saw this at Jeff Wells’ site and wanted to repost here. Obama should have someone somewhere take this image and plaster it all over the country. This is awesome. Maybe I’ll make my own posters. Oh boy, I can’t wait until an unprepared McCain has his ass handed to him Friday night. Barack Obama is the man.

Oh, The Places He’s Gone

I’ve always had a fondness for Waldo.

You know, the bespeckled wanderer and star of the Where’s Waldo? series of books by Martin Handford.

Back in the day, I was a little obsessed. I collected the books. Most of my college admissions essays tackled the same theme: that I was very much like Waldo, an explorer who still hadn’t found what he was looking for. Freshman year (and maybe sophomore year too) of college I had a poster of Waldo in the Land of Waldos on my dorm-room wall.

And when my hair was longer and parted like so, people used to tell me I looked like Waldo. (No, I never did dress up like him for Halloween. I knew you were going to ask.) Continue reading

Here’s … Joshie!

If I had to pick a highlight of last night’s Emmy Awards — well, it probably wouldn’t be this. But Josh Groban’s medley of 30 TV show theme songs was just nutty and random enough to merit posting a clip here. After all, it’s not every day you see a serious singer like Groban reduced to such corniness.

He’s Back

Just a quick plug to let you know that Brad Meltzer, who I’ve written about here and here, will be in Boston Monday night to read from and sign copies of his new book, The Book of Lies. He’ll be at Brookline Booksmith in Coolidge Corner at 7 p.m. You know I’ll be in attendance. Will you be there too?

From last night’s Real Time with Bill Maher:

How some people can still be undecided in this race is beyond me.

Ahoy! ( yet again)

Hey there, Mateys!

It’s International Talk Like a Pirate Day. But you already knew that, didn’t you?

I’ve written about this glorious holiday in the past, so rather than be repetitive or redundant — lest you make me walk the plank — I’ll just link you to the old post.

Say it with me: Arrrrrrrgh!
