Just a dozen please…

Here are a dozen things to ponder on this fabulous Earth Day 2009.

1. Comedian and actress/activist Janeane Garofalo revealed the depths of her intellect during a session with Keith Olbermann on MSNBC recently when the two mental titans held a sharing moment of disdain for all things truly American. If you missed it, check it out here.


Not only does Garofalo lay bare her vicious nature and pervading

sense of anger toward those who disagree with her, she also comes off as a woman intent on lacing her speech with high-brow terms to try and appear smarter than she really is.  

Her discussion included terms like the limbic brain, imperialism and foment but also included snappy little ditties like “A bunch of teabagging rednecks” and “This is racism straight up.”

Stop playing your sudo-intellectual game JG and tell us what you really think. All you can do is help our cause with your hate-mongering vitriol.

2. The disdain and the attempt to undercut the success of the tea parties by the mainstream press was expected and, I think, can only help to unite those disenfranchised by their government even more.

3. The Miss USA pageant has got me pretty upset too.




For those who might have missed it, Miss California, Carrie Prejean, a frontrunner to win the pageant, was asked her thoughts on gay marriage by openly gay blogger Perez Hilton. When Prejean answered that she thought marriage should be between a man and a woman, which wasn’t what he wanted to hear, Hilton responded by belittling her on his website and liberal activists across the country have been reaching for the torches and pitchforks ever since.

Then, Miss Prejean had the audacity to go on the today show and reiterate her answer to his question by saying that for her it was important to be “Biblically correct.” The media blitz since her non-politically correct response has been strong and steady. However, here is the rub. Why is it that the party of tolerance, the group of acceptance, the party of open arms is the first to not accept and be intolerant of those who disagree with them politically? Why can’t Miss Prejean believe as she sees fit? How can progressives hell-bent on creating a world of all grays suddenly see in black and white? Last time I checked you can believe as you please in our freedom-loving nation and should be entitled to do so. And unlike Garofalo who attacked millions of Americans who disagree with her in her rant on Olbermann, Prejean simply said that she believes that marriage should between a man and a woman. She didn’t go after a specific group politically opposed to her view by attacking them. She just answered a question honestly. It is a shame if those upset by Prejean’s comments can’t separate someone’s opinion of an issue from what they apparently believe is undue prejudice. God forbid you speak what you actually believe, I guess. And, outside of that, I think from now on it is a great idea to allow judges at Miss USA to ask questions that are specifically tied to their own emotions and personal convictions. Dumb idea, pageant people.

4. Isn’t it interesting that when they are not being spoon-fed sugar-coated glop always seem to reveal their true colors. Tell them how you feel and then watch the fireworks as they try to tell you why it is not correct to feel that way. Don’t actually make a coherent argument. Just berate and belittle. It really is cute.

5. Speaking of showing colors, don’t you find it interesting that liberals and progressives are always hung up on racial differences? I feel sorry for Garofalo that her fallback argument is centered around race. When I look at Obama, I see someone I don’t agree with, I don’t see a black man. Find a mirror Janeane and all of those who want to continuously play the race card.  Race had nothing to do with the tea parties.

6. Does anyone else think it is pretty cool that all three major Pittsburgh sports teams wear black and gold? Name another city with three professional sports teams with the same colors. I can’t.

7. While on the subject of sports, I have to say that Philadelphia fans are the most classless in all of major sports. Just watch one of the Penguin games in Philly and listen to the brilliant chants created by the Flyers fan base. I don’t know if you were aware, but Sidney Crosby, the NHL’s third top scorer and universal ambassador of the game…sucks. Philly fans will tell you about 1,500 times a game if you care to listen. Try getting a clue kids and actually root for something about your team instead of tearing down those opposed to you. Such a liberal mentality.

8. I’m getting pretty tired of watching Obama bow to foreign leaders and apologize for the strength and goodness of America. If you hate it so much, Mr. President, just leave. I’m sure there are some great cabinet positions in Cuba.

9. Rasmussen polling service reported this month that only 1/3 of Americans now believe that global warming is caused by man, down from 54 percent last year. A reason for hope? Maybe…

10. Plus, Rasmussen reports that more than half of Americans believe that the so-called global warming crisis has been over-hyped by the media. Huh? Are you serious? I would never have thunk it…

11. Don’t ever workout after getting a bad sunburn. Learned that lesson Saturday when my arms got extremely sunburned and then I worked out later that evening. I went to bed Saturday night with general discomfort (normal sunburn discomfort) but awoke at 3 a.m. and felt like my forearms had been crushed. Apparently, lifting weights drew blood to the sunburned area and caused my muscles to seize. My forearms were as hard as steel for about 24 hours and I had to sit with them elevated to try and drain the blood from them to keep the pain tolerable. Lesson learned. Sunburn plus workout = bad plan.

12. White House press secretary Robert Gibbs 



has spent the last few days trying to convince the American people of the massive budget cut by the O-Admin of $100 million. This is a real savings, Gibbs and the O-Machine have claimed. Sure, but wasn’t it just last week Mr. Gibbs that you told the press that $8 billion in earmarks was miniscule? I think it was you…consistency guys. It could help your cause.

    Janeane Garafalo??? I couldn’t stand her when I first saw her on the MTV Half Hour Comedy hour many years ago and I still can’t. She has always been a bitter angry woman who, like you said JOsh, loves to use the big words. My question is this : why does anyone, especially an intelligent person like yourself, give a rat’s ass what this wacko has to say?? Anyone taking Garafalo at face value doesn’t really stand a chance in the world anyways, so who cares???
    However, I do fell there is some hypocrisy when you start your rant on Miss USA. You say she should be able to say anything she wants. I agree. But yet you attack Garafalo for expressing her feelings. The difference? Miss USA agrees with you. Then you bash the liberals for attacking Miss USA for her feelings. A paragraph after YOU bashed someone for the very same reason. And then you say “How can progressives hell-bent on creating a world of all grays suddenly see in black and white?” Weren’t these people attacking MISS USA’s view of NO gray area?? She stated marraige should be between a man and woman, a very non- gray stance. That is what was attacked. Just wanted to pint that out. Again, I could care less what Miss USA or Perz Hilton thinks about anything.
    Now for some agreement. Philadelphia fans are classless. Whether it’s the Eagles, Flyers, or Phillies. Let’s face it, there just jealous of the best city in PA 😉 Keep watching though, you will see Syd is hated in most cities. It’s one of the downsides to being “The Man”! Go Pens!!
    Asb for the black and gold thing, that is awesome and another reason the Burgh rocks! New York is close…the Knicks, Islanders, and Mets all wear blue and orange. Of course, when you have 2 or 3 teams for each sport that would be bound to happen.
    Lastly, thanks for the tip on the sunburn/workout thing. If I ever decide to workout I’ll keep that in mind.

    I wonder if PETA is going to attack Perez Hilton for that fur “he” is wearing.

    The difference between Garofalo and Miss California is that Miss California is taking all kind of heat in the media for what she said – Garofalo is NOT. Garofalo LABELED an entire group of people as “racist rednecks” – Miss California stated, “I believe marriage should be between a man and woman.” She did not label or attack anyone, as Garofalo did. Garofalo stated her peace of mind almost as fact, like she knew for sure that no one who participated in the Tea Parties knew anything about issues or even history (The Boston Tea Party). In fact, Garofalo DECLARED, “it’s racism, straight up.”

    The frustration does not come from what Garofalo said, it comes from her not taking any flack in the media for her comments, thus further proving that most media outlets are liberal. Just imagine for one second that Glenn Beck or Rush Limbaugh said such strong attacks as Garofalo, what would be the outcome? How much of a lashing would either one of them receive? The Double Standards are scary, and they are getting worse and worse.

    I personally applaud Miss California. I would hope that the judges would respect her honesty. What did they want from her? The Fluff that they WANTED to hear rather than a truthful answer? If you don’t want to know, or can’t deal with what the answer may be given, best not to ask the question!

    I think garafaolnot getting as much flack is more due to her irrelevance than the liberal media. 75% of Americans probably have no idea who she is. Whereas Miss USA is on antional television being watched by many more people than Keith Olberman.
    Another thing is this : Do you really not think this was set up to a degree? The pageant people had to know this young lady’s basic beliefs on marriage already. So they send Ms. Hilton out there to ask this question. This pageant is getting more pub than it has in years!

    I thought the race card would be vanished once Obama took office. After all, there are no more excuses to use this worn out, abused, and manipulated, plea anymore. Right?

    But it’s gotten worse. Even whites are calling white people racists! America is shifting into a two-fold nation. If I do not believe Obama has the conviction and fortitude to move this country out of the mess we are in, am I a Racist? If I think Obama should stay home, instead of bending over and kissing dignitary’s asses, while apologizing for the sad state of affairs back home, am I a Racist? If I think Obama should continue to uphold the Constitution Of The United States, and all of It’s amendments, am I a Racist? Mambee-pambee comes to mind. Not a black man, just a mambee-pambee. Yeah, I said it before, and I’m saying it again.

    What makes this situation so much worse is the glorifying media devotion to this Mambee-pambee and all of his Devotees. Why? Does this make me a Racist?

    The difference between Janeane Garofolo(yawn), and Prejean is simple. Janeane was allowed to voice her hateful opinion without any retribution. Prejean voiced hers, and lost the pageant as a result of it. Go figure. Maybe according to Ms. Perez, she’s a Racist too.
