Over in a corner in a cage all by himself was the red-assed Karl Rove.
...
Every zoo has its specialty and Fox is no exception. They have the largest collection of blonde, bulemic middle school girls posing as reporters with names like Megyn, Gretchen, Cheryl and Dana... many of them openly wept as the election results came in causing a river of mascara that got all over everything.



I like her.

hammettman: Is this lady for real? Or is it a writers room full of 30 caffeinated Ivy leagued post grad lit majors out to Preston Sturges each other? This lady is throwing down buckets of awesome.


From their About page:

FAQ

Are you for real?
Why is that so hard to believe? Now I know what Santa Claus must feel like.

Have you really been friends for 60 years?
Some friendships last a lifetime. We just seem to be living a hell of a long time.

Is this a fake blog?
We got a few scary emails when I first wrote about Sarah Palin so my grandson told me to change our last names on the web page blog. Philpot was my grandmother's maiden name and Schmechtman is actually the name of a bird Margaret keeps as a pet. That bird shiats on everything, but she loves him.

Why doesn't Margaret write more?
She prefers to pick up the phone and call. I guess I am more the writer, but she is a wonderful artist. I have some of her paintings in my house. My grandchildren set me up on this computer, but Margaret always has problems getting on the Internet and says it is too slow. Maybe it is a Maine thing. She reads all of the comments and calls me when she sees a comment that she wants to talk about. Sometimes she offers witty lines that I add to my stories.

Is Margaret a Republican?
Her husband is.

Why did you go so long between blogs before now?
Actually we had several more things on the web page but when it began to get popular my grandson suggested that we take them off because they were personal between me and Margaret. I sometimes write short stories and would put them on here for Margaret to read. Some of it was racy. Much of it was just nonsense.

Will you keep doing this after the election?
Yes, but I don't know if everyone will keep coming back. There are lots of idiots out there who aren't running for office, but don't get me started on that shiat for brains Elisabeth from The View.

" As expected, they blamed the liberal media for handing the election to Obama while simultaneously chirping that Fox is the most watched news broadcast in the nation. I know. I know. It doesn't make a hell of a lot of sense but it's Fox News. It doesn't have to"

Old enough to know better: I admire you guys and your ability to watch that network. I swear if I tried, I'd be replacing my tv on a daily basis.


I once challenged myself to watching 90 minutes of Fox. I made it, however, I did have to urinate on the TV near the end.

(Of course I was drunk, no way I'd try that sober).

I love the picture on her blog too. Two old ladies on hoverrounds.. aww, how Rep..wait, are they on a battleship? That must double their Republicanism! Patriot, MERIKA. Then you read the blog and it's like members of that bygone era, where reason still prevailed, are reaching through time to smack you down like the fool you are. >.>

First off, this shiat is awesome!

Secondly: "I can't keep all of their names straight but one of them suggested that the majority of voters are like abused housewives who voted to stay with their abuser."

What that shiat really said? Really? Someone, please, farking tell me who.

Gather around, it's CSB time:

During my freshman year in college, I worked as costumer service/billing for DirecTV (in other words, Hell on a phone, the callers were never happy). I had a costumer that, weekly, complained that our 'liberal network' disconnected Fox News from his service. And every time he switched it, it was on, and with the O'Reilly Factor (I could listen through the phone), and then did a 20-minute tantrum on how 'liberals were gonna destroy America' (this is 2003 we're talking about), and when he figured out I was Mexican, all Hell broke lose.

[Ann Coulter] seemed pretty at ease in the zoo. I guess that comes from all the time she spent collaborating with monkeys on those personal therapy projects she calls books.

Pfffffffff

There were a lot of burns in there.
