Colbert County Values

If you didn't catch the Colbert Report last night then you better have TiVO. And if you don't have TiVO then, what, are you living in Colbert County?



Stephen had the first segment of the Colbert Report in Colbert County last night. Very funny stuff especially when the reporter asked the lady who runs the Helen Keller museum if she wants to hear a Helen Keller joke? She tells him no so he changes his approach by stating that a historian once told him of a Helen Keller occurrance in which she fell down a well and screamed her hands off.

The vid is not up on Comedy Central but I'll let you know when it is.

Don't likey San Francisco Values? Then you'll need to get rid of a few things....

San Francisco Values:
"Did you hear that O'Reilly invented the slur 'San Francisco values'? Yeah, he also thinks he invented sliced bread and fire.

But let's talk about 'San Francisco values', you know -- tolerance, entrepreneurship, and creativity.

Since O'Reilly boycotts everything he hates, I look forward to his boycott of all Bay Area-origin products. Same with every conservative who bashes San Francisco and the Bay Area. So no iPods or anything Apple. No HP computers. No Google. No Yahoo. No eBay. Those conservative bloggers using Blogspot, MovableType, or TypePad? Sorry. Those products are Bay Area-based.

Also no....... "
This list goes on and on and on and on.....

Daily reminder that Republicans, though neutered, are still dicks who bare watching.

President Dick. Virginia, you've got a great one in Webb:

Bush, Webb in testy exchange over Senator-elect's soldier son:
"President Bush and U.S. Senator-elect Jim Webb got into a testy exchange over the status of Webb's soldier son, who is serving in Iraq, The Hill is reporting.

Emily Heil writes that at a White House private dinner just after the election featuring 'newly elected lawmakers,' Bush asked Webb 'how his son, a Marine lance corporal serving in Iraq, was doing.' According to a person who was present at the dinner, Webb replied to the President that he 'really wanted to see his son brought back home.'

'I didn't ask you that, I asked how he's doing,' Bush replied, according to The Hill's source."
2nd Republican Dick. And they're seriously considering this POS as their nominee in 08? Fuck him and his divorced horse. Unbelievable. Anyone who agrees with this fool needs to take their ass to Russia.

Gingrich raises alarm at event honoring those who stand up for freedom of speech
"MANCHESTER – Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich yesterday said the country will be forced to reexamine freedom of speech to meet the threat of terrorism.

Gingrich, speaking at a Manchester awards banquet, said a 'different set of rules' may be needed to reduce terrorists' ability to use the Internet and free speech to recruit and get out their message.

Paris may of had the idea but a Bay Area firm is building this cool looking building.

A wind-powered skyscraper in Paris:
"PARIS — Developers have selected a design by an award-winning American architect for a bold new building nearly as tall as the Eiffel Tower — and powered partly by the wind."

Speaks for itself. U.S.A.! U.S.A.!:

Man Seeks Record for Arm Hair Length:
"Jon Sanford takes good care of his hair, washing it regularly and conditioning it occasionally. Now he might break a record for that hair — on his arms.

One particularly long strand measured 4.1 inches. If the measurement is ruled official by Guinness World Records, Sanford will have topped the previous record of 3.96 inches."

And in the 'no-shit' category:

Women talk three times as much as men, says study:
"It is something one half of the population has long suspected - and the other half always vocally denied. Women really do talk more than men.

In fact, women talk almost three times as much as men, with the average woman chalking up 20,000 words in a day - 13,000 more than the average man."

Hadn't been to the site in a while, but glad you picked up on how VA chose Webb over the pompous prick Allen.

Sadly, the Webb victory further polarized the state, as he carried NoVA with 70/30+ margins, but was hadled soundly by Allen in the South.

In what should come as no great surprise, his reaction to Bush was chastised in the WP. Personally, I appreciate the break from bureaucracy he will bring to the Senate.

Good to see you back, RRD.

Pompous prink Allen, Indeed! I love Webb. VA has almost become two states, then. Once they see Webb in action I believe SoVA are gonna love him to death.

Honestly, Fuck the WP and fuck George Will who cried about that encounter and misrepresented what actually happened. Will left out the part about Bush saying "That's not what I asked you". What a petulant little bitch. Will also lost whatever remaining credibility he had when he characterized Web as a 'boor' who 'mangles the english language'. ??? Will sure is projecting these days.

I wish Webb had of smacked Bush then and there. Bush will never be a fractin of the man Webb is.
