Palin and Her Big Mouth

Just when I begin to think that Sarah Palin might actually have a brain, she opens her mouth and proves otherwise.  Her latest blunder...trying to outlaw the use of the word "retarded"...has irritated me to no end.

First of all, if you look up the definition of the word, you'll find that it is not, in any way derogatory.  In fact, a form of the word, the Italian "ritard" is used in music to indicate a slowing of tempo.  Should we omit that word from all our music?

Also, Palin slammed the show "Family Guy" for having a character with Down's syndrome in its Valentine's Day episode.  Bristol got in on it too, voicing her displeasure at the writers' introduction of the character and identify her with "a former governor of Alaska."  The voice actor who performed that part, who has Down's syndrome, said that she didn't have a problem playing the part and wasn't at all offended by it. 

The Terminator's take...We have enough political correctness, and we don't need to add to our list of words considered offensive.  Pretty soon, we'll have to stop talking altogether.  As for Palin, she might as well dress as a scarecrow and parade around singing, "if I only had a brain."

An Ode to The Angry Greek

I have to take a moment to talk about the absoultely fabulous Angry Greek.  She is so on top of Hollywood gossip that Perez Hilton is probably shaking in his computer chair (suddenly shuddering at that image...ewww!). 

With such creativity, she weaves the stories of Brangelina, Hohan, and the Trollsens (just to name a few) using her own flowery prose.  "Fuckery," abounds, and she finds it and shows it for what it is!  Loonies  (Wingnuts, Fundies, and the like) beware...if you choose to rant on her site, you'll be greeted by a barrage of supporters and a special little gift from the Greek herself, lol.

Check out her site, and lend your support!

I love your style, AG...keep up the great work!!

Concerned Women Mad About Biased Judge

You all are gonna love this one!!  In the Perry vs. Schwarzenegger marriage trial in California, some infuriating comments have come from wrtiters over at Concerned Women for America.  This article, written by a man, by the way, tries to imply that the judge involved is biased because of his sexual orientation.  See, he's gay! 

*insert exasperated gasp here*

The very concerned woman, Mario Diaz, writes,

"Judge Walker allowed same-sex "marriage" supporters to present hours upon hours of irrelevant emotional appeals but little legal substance. Any reasonable observer could see there was nothing there. Time after time, witness after witness, those present could not help but wonder why this debate was even happening in that courtroom? Why was the judge allowing this circus to continue?"
First, I find putting the word marriage in quotes offensive.  Allowing two people who are committed to each other to marry has no impact on heterosexual marriages and should be viewed on equal footing.  As to the questions about the testimony, I don't know why Mr. Diaz is so confused.  If he wished to marry someone...anyone...and was told he couldn't, he too would have some painful, heartfelt comments to make if given the chance.  If he were in the same situation, he wouldn't be referring to the painful testimony of others as a "circus."

Further, what does the sexual orientation of the judge have to do with anything?  Honestly, if we were to apply the same standard to divorce cases, would the sexual orientation or relationship history of the judge be called into question?  No...because part of being a judge is to look at each case through the eyes of the law, without personal bias.  The whole concept of drawing attention to this judge's sexual orientation is baffling to me.

The Terminator's take...Mr. Diaz, an obviously very concerned woman, is an idiot, and he proves it in one of his final statements...

"Now, I know that the judge's sexuality is not really important legally. His biased, activist and unlawful decisions are the real problem and not his motives. But it sure helps to explain a lot."

Yep, Mr. explains a lot!

Tea Party Hilarity

I waited and waited for the hoopla to begin in Nashville, and I wasn't disappointed.  Just take a look at this video from some of those lovable little nuts who attended...

Did you notice that when pressed about some of their fundamental issues, such as constitutionalism...they couldn't even come up with an example?  About the only thing they could come up with was that Obama shouldn't have been allowed to run for the presidency.  I suppose that no amount of documented evidence as to his country of birth will convice these wingnuts. 

That aside, did you notice how much these fundies paid to attend?  $550 bucks a head so they can get together and bash Obama, insult those who voted for and support Obama and whine about how much they are paying in taxes.  That reminds me...did you hear Tancredo?  Take a look at what he had to say about all who voted for Obama...

The Terminator's take...I don't know whether to laugh, cry or just punch Tancredo in the face.  That first video was hilarious, showing how idiotic some of these folks are, but the second one infuriated me.  You know as well as I do that if a Democrat questioned the literacy of a Republican, they'd never hear the end of it.  It would be the Republican battle cry until election day.  We should be used to it, though, since there is a constant double standard where these things are concerned.  In the words of Forrest Gump, "Stupid is as stupid does."
