Quote of the year

“I worship the ground that Paul Ryan walks on. I hope he doesn’t run for president because that would ruin a good man who has a lot of work to do.”

– Former Vice President Dick Cheney, who apparently has a big man crush on Rep. Paul Ryan.

No doubt the wholehearted support of former VP Cheney will be a great thing for Rep. Ryan!

  1. Is this the beginning of the era of “Ryan Worship”? (Saint) Paul has the answers to our budget woes. Let’s all of us kiss his holy ring.

  2. Yuck. So…Mr. Pig-parts has a crush. What could be more disgusting. I never thought I’d feel sorry for Ryan but now I do.
    Dick’s hot hot BL is especially interesting considering his wife wrote lesbian love books (or maybe it was just one, I forget the details thank god) when she was young.
    And then you have Scalia going on about the rippling muscles of CA prisoners in his SCOTUS dissent and what they’re gonna do to ya when they’re back on the streets (and in Anton’s bedroom).
    Out the whole Right wing now. This is getting silly.

  3. Reminds me of Chris Matthews and the thrill he gets down his leg everytime he mentions President Chalaque, he has the biggest man crush I have ever seen on the “one”

    1. “President Chalaque”, Angelic Douchebag? Seriously?

      [See how I changed your name around like that? So very easy to do, but so fifth grade, don’t you think?

      He’s your President, mofo. Try showing a little respect, huh?

      In any event, IF you feel the need to hurl insults, at least make them good ones. “Chalaque”? What the f*ck? Kind of obscure, isn’t it, a little bit too “inside the wingnut”, don’t ya think? (*laughing*)

      Look, Angel of Death, we get that you don’t like President Obama, but, hey, big guy, an insult is only effective when people can understand it.

      That said, the jury is still out on whether the use of the code name by the British Secret Service was intended to be insulting, complimentary or just neutral.

      But, being of the wingnut/”Ditto-Head” persuasion, you clearly jumped right on the “insult” bandwagon, didn’t ya. Next time, do a little research first, all right, big guy? People already think that wingnuts are kinda stupid, in the first place. You don’t want to give them any more evidence do you?


  4. Anyway, Angel of Death’s wingnut snark, notwithstanding, wasn’t “Angel of Death” the British Secret Service’s code name for Dick Cheney? Or was it Darth Vader? Dark Lord [tip of the hat to Jeff Simpson]?


    Now that I think about it, Angel of Death? Hmmmmmmm. Dick is THAT you? Can I call ya, “DICK”?


    Look, Angel of Death, your “obscure reference” deflection doesn’t really change the fact that Dick Cheney’s “man crush” endorsement was probably the last thing that Paul (“Angel of Death, Junior”) Ryan wanted.

    I was reminded of the October 2008 Saturday Live sketch in which Will Ferrell played George W. Bush trying to give John McCain and Sarah Palin his endorsement. (*SPOILER ALERT*) They didn’t want it. (*laughing*)

    Hilarious, AND apropos.

    “Thursday’s “Saturday Night Live” election special welcomed Will Ferrell back playing President Bush in the opening sketch, with Ferrell’s Bush offering an unwanted endorsement for the McCain- Palin ticket. The sketch was cowritten by Adam McKay and also starred Tina Fey as Sarah Palin meeting Bush for the first time.

    As Ferrell’s Bush puts it, the election is between “the hot lady and the Tiger Woods guy” and “I’m out of here in a few months, so screw it.” He has also declared the White House a “bummer-free zone.”

    WATCH: (or scroll down for longer transcript)

    The last time America saw Will Ferrell as Bush was in April at an autism fundraiser. Ferrell is set to play Bush on Broadway next year.


    WILL FERRELL AS PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH – “Hello, my fellow Americans. I have chosen to schedule this impromptu address at night because quite frankly every time I speak during the day, the Stock Market goes in the crapper. So, sorry, Asian markets. You take the hit on this one. I come to you tonight in the midst of a very important election between two very qualified candidates: the hot lady and the Tiger Woods guy. Both candidates are heavily patriotized and display much characterization. And yes, I did have three Xanax and a Silver Bullet about a half-hour ago. I’m out of here in a few months, so screw it. But before I leave I wanted to help Sarah Palin and John McCain by giving them what every candidate wants most: a prime-time heavily publicized network endorsement from George W. Bush. Hey, don’t pinch yourself John, you are awake!”

    FERRELL AS BUSH (CONT’D) — “Now I tried to do this several months ago but somehow it kept getting pushed to a written press release or a shouted sentence as I walked to the helicopter. I began to suspect that they didn’t want my endorsement to be too public. But now with the country on a big upswing and my numbers on the rise, I thought it was time to give a proper, large scale ‘much love’ to McCain and Palin…”

    (WILL FORTE, as an AIDE enters and whispers in BUSH’s ear)

    FERRELL AS BUSH (CONT’D) – “What? Really? Why didn’t you tell me Jeff? I’ve just been told by my trusted aide Jeff, that the country is actually in a horrible downward spiral and that my approval numbers are lower than ever. That one’s on me. Four months ago, I declared the Oval Office a bummer-free zone. So… You know what, let’s bring on Senator McCain and Governor Palin.”

    (TINA FEY as GOVERNOR SARAH PALIN enters smiling and waving and sits next to BUSH on the front the desk)

    TINA FEY AS GOVERNOR SARAH PALIN – “So nice to meet you, Mr. President. I’ve seen you on TV.”

    FERRELL AS BUSH – “Where’s McRage?”

    FEY AS PALIN – “You know, John McCain and I have been so busy travelin’ around this great country of ours talkin’ about change and energy independence and William Ayers, and doin’ a little shoppin’, but unfortunately Senator McCain, upon hearing you wanted to give him a super public endorsement, cannot be found. He was last seen travelin’ on foot through the Adirondacks. But my husband and two of his drinkin’ buddies are in pursuit on snowmachines.

    FERRELL AS BUSH – “Well, We’ll smoke him out. George Bush always finds his man save for one huge exception.”

    FEY AS PALIN – “We are gonna get ‘er done.”

    FERRELL AS BUSH – “My God you are folksy.”

    FEY AS PALIN – “Why thank you Mr. President. I like to think I’m one part practiced folksy , one part sassy and a little dash of high school bitchy.”

    FERRELL AS BUSH – “For a little while I was trying to be folksy but after a bit, it just came off douchey. All right, let me get into my endorsement for you as Vice President. As you know America, the office of Vice President is the most important office in the land. The Vice President decides when we go to war, how we tax the citizens and how we interpret the Constitution. The President can do nothing without checking with the Vice President. That is why Sarah Palin…”

    FEY AS PALIN – “Actually, Mr. President, I don’t want to go all Katie Couric on you, but I think it’s actually the other way around. I think the Vice President reports to the President.”

    FERRELL AS BUSH – “Really? That’s not what Dick Cheney told me when he sat me down on the first day.”

    (DARRELL HAMMOND as SENATOR JOHN MCCAIN is brought in, struggling with JASON SUDEIKIS as TODD PALIN in a snowsuit.)

    SUDEIKIS AS TODD PALIN – “We out-mavericked the maverick!”

    HAMMOND AS MCCAIN – “Good evening, my friends. Mr. President, always a pleasure.”

    FERRELL AS BUSH – “Good to see you, John. Hey let’s get a photo of this; it’ll really help your campaign out. Now let me do this: I, George W. Bush, endorse John McCain and Sarah Palin with all my heart…”

    (MCCAIN tries to drift out of frame but is pulled back by BUSH)
    FERRELL AS BUSH (cont’d) – “John was there for me ninety percent of the time over the last eight years. When you think of John McCain, think of me, George W. Bush. Think of this face. When you’re in the voting booth, before you vote – picture this face right here. A vote for John McCain is a vote for George W. Bush.
    (to MCCAIN) You’re welcome. So, I want to be there you, John for the next eight years.”

    FEY AS PALIN -The next sixteen years!

    FERRELL AS BUSH – (to an off-camera photographer) “Let’s get a safety. I think I blinked on that last shot. Thumbs up, everybody. But most of all I support them because…Live from New York…It’s Saturday Night!!!!”

  5. Have a great Memorial Day weekend everybody [even you, Angel of Death]!!!

    But, first and foremost, let’s remember those who gave their lives in the service of our great nation.

    See ya next week.

  6. I feel bad, I really am sorry to get you so worked up Mr Bound, I did not mean to do that. With that said President Chalaque IS NOT my president, I did not vote for him, I do not support him and I have no respect for the man.Sadly I am pretty sire this country will be cursed by him for 4 more years as all of the current opposition candidates are just as weak as President Chalaque.

    1. @ Angel of Death

      Are you really THAT thick? (*laughing*)

      Don’t confuse an intelligent, tongue-in-cheek response to your illiterate, wingnut drivel with “getting worked up”.

      Given what you wrote just above, you might actually want to re-read my original comment, not that I think that you’re intelligent enough to realize just how stupid it makes you look. But hope springs eternal.

      President Obama is YOUR President, little homey, whether you like it or not. You’ve got a black man in the White House. You need to learn how to deal with that with greater maturity.

      In any event, I’m glad to hear that you’ve reconciled yourself to the fact that President Obama will be YOUR President until 2016.

      You remind me of Notalib, but with less intelligence and insight. Ask around. Now THAT’S an insult. (*laughing*)

      “Chalaque” (*still laughing*), NOT so much.

      And I’m “pretty sire [sic]” about that.


    2. I think it’s pretty safe to say we all had figured out that you have no respect for President Obama, given the fact that you felt obligated to refer to him as “President Chalaque.”

  7. For my money, the quote of the year came a few weeks back on Friday Night Lights when Coach Taylor imparted this advice on his players:

    “Stay away from dumb.”

    Which also reminds me of another one of my favorites:

    “Stupid should hurt.”
