Politicians use Fox for visibility


Three of the top five choices in the Southern Republican Leadership Conference's recent straw poll on favorite 2012 presidential candidates had more than one thing in common: They're all on the Fox News Channel payroll.


Sex, Lies and Oil Spills

RFK,Jr - 5-5-10

A common spin in the right wing coverage of BP's oil spill is a gleeful suggestion that the gulf blowout is Obama's Katrina.
In truth, culpability for the disaster can more accurately be laid at the Bush Administration's doorstep

Ex-FEMA chief: Obama using oil spill to his advantage


Former FEMA director Michael Brown is not backing off his charge that the Obama administration wants to use the Gulf Coast oil spill as a plot to put an end to offshore drilling.


FYI: That's Bill O'Reilly of Fox News in the top toon. Gee, in 1998 when Hillary Clinton said there was a vast right wing conspiracy, boy, was she right, but you can't call it a conspiracy anymore. It's now a vast right wing coup d'état.



Every asshole who ever chanted "Drill Baby Drill" should have to report to the Gulf coast for cleanup duty. - Bill Maher

The real hero in this story was the T-shirt vendor who told the policeman about the smoke coming from the S.U.V. in Times Square. And for some reason, New York Mayor Bloomberg took the policeman to dinner but not the T-shirt vendor. Hey, you see the T-shirt he’s selling today? It says: “I saw the smoking S.U.V. first. All I got was this lousy T-shirt.”-

Our Money Was Hacked


A website of the US Treasury's Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) was suspended Tuesday after it was hacked, a BEP spokeswoman said.





But don’t you feel secure, ladies and gentlemen, knowing that the only thing standing between you and terrorism is a T-shirt vendor?- David Letterman



Disturbing News


Speaking of terrorism, two new videos from the Pakistani Taliban seem to show that their leader, Hakimullah Mehsud, is alive, even though the U.S. thought he was killed. So, either our intelligence is wrong or they’re just shooting the new movie, “Weekend at Hakimullah’s.”- Jimmy Fallon

Joe the Plumber Is Back!



 Joe the Plumber is plunging into party politics.

Samuel "Joe" Wurzelbacher (WUR'-zuhl-bah-kur), who was hailed by Republican John McCain's presidential campaign in 2008, has won one of nearly 400 seats on the local Republican Party committee in Ohio's Lucas County.


Yeah, they plucked a guy off a plane. His name is Faisal Shahzad. They say he was a moody loner. Last year, he vacationed in the tribal regions of Pakistan. Well, no red flags there.- David Letterman

Well, here’s something kind of embarrassing. The government has called off the Safety Awards for Excellence ceremony that was supposed to take place this week, in honor of outstanding safety and pollution prevention. And British Petroleum, the one that was responsible for the big oil spill in the Gulf, was one of the three finalists for the award. I believe the other two were China and the volcano in Iceland.- Jay Leno

The Rich Farmers Get Richer


Lawmakers crafting a sweeping farm bill in 2008 promised it would cut government payments to wealthy farmers. Two years later, little appears to have changed.

Data being made public Wednesday shows that the wealthiest farmers in the country are still receiving the bulk of government cash, despite claims from lawmakers that reforms in the bill would put more money in the hands of smaller farms.



Well, scientists are predicting that the oil from the BP spill will eventually reach the shores of Florida. So if you hated visiting your grandparents before, wait until you’re hosing down their oily bodies after a long day at the beach.- Jimmy Fallon

In this image released by Mexico's Attorney General's Office on May 3, 2010, gold-plated, diamond-encrusted weapons are seen after they were confiscated when the army seized a ranch in Zapopan, Mexico, Sunday, May 2, 2010. According to prosecutors, the weapons are believed to belong to the Valencia gang, allies of the powerful Sinaloa drug cartel, and most of the 31 pistols found in the raid had gold or silver-plated grips or glittered with diamonds. At the very least, there are two more guns off the streets.
