ALERT: the content of this blog post is satirical in nature and is not based on actual events, news reports, or quotes from MSM news-makers. Granted, it is extremely difficult to distinguish satire from reality when it comes to the news anymore. Hence, the alert.

Mitt RomneyMitt Romney, at an 11:00 am rally with supporters in San Diego, California, opened his remarks with “Good morning my fellow Americans!” at which point the newswires lit up with expressions of disbelief.

Rachel Maddow: “Forget opening an airplane window, Mitt Romney doesn’t even know the difference between morning and afternoon. Doesn’t he know it’s 1 PM IN THE AFTERNOON in New York?”

Lawrence O’Donnell: “Romney is just trying to confuse the public and deflect from his failed potential future economic policies.”

Chris Matthews:”Can Mitt Romney even comprehend the magnitude of racial prejudice in telling someone to have a “Good Morning”? Millions of Americans DO NOT have good mornings every day! Besides, it’s afternoon here in New York. This guy is SO out of touch!”

What lunacy can I make up tomorrow that can rival and possibly mirror the actual News Cycle we’re seeing in the mainstream media?

Barney Frank Talks Out His Backside (as if that was news)

leave a comment »

Barney Frank, appearing on the Rachel Maddow show on MSNBC last night actually said something every American can relate to, except it didn’t come out of his mouth.  At the beginning of the video Frank appears to shift in his seat as he talks to Maddow and then at :04 seconds in, quite clearly leans to one side and lets one rip.  The buck-snort (that’s code word for fart here in the Rockies) was loud enough to be picked up by Frank’s mic.  I’m sure the DNC will have a presser on this explaining the sound as “just a squeaky chair cushion” but we all know better.

I’m hoping someone from the Republican side comes out and compliments the Senator for making one of the most intelligent remarks of his long political career…even if it was just a “slip of the bum”.

Sorry I couldn’t help myself.
