It's amazing what is considered news these days. vol 2

Democratic Scandal! I knew Democrats were as bad as Republicans... A Wal-Mart Critic's staffer trying to get a PS3?

Bastard John Edwards (not the creepy psychic, the other one)!

Here's my favorite line (from Wal-mart's press release):

"While the rest of America's working families are waiting patiently in line, Senator Edwards wants to cut to the front," the Wal-Mart statement said.

Yes, that was their press release. They're making this news. They're fighting back against all that Anti-Wal-Mart vibe. Poor guys. Good thing the AP isn't falling for this helping them out. Oops.

Funny News?

Here's what's great about the idea that Faux News is looking to come up with anti-daily show to the Daily Show. Let them try it. It'll never work. Why? They're not funny.

This is not to say that conservatives aren't funny. I know a few that are. But, there's nothing that can come out of an organization like Fox News that's funny. It just can't happen. You know what will be funny? Watching them *try* to be funny. And the Monica Jokes. That will be sweet.

Plus, the key mistake is to think that the Daily Show is about democratic politics. It's foolish to think that you even need a response to the daily show. They're not partisan. They're iconoclasts. And the icons for the last few years have all been Republicans. They don't make fun of policy. They make fun of hypocrites and idiots. It's not the Dems' fault that most of them have had a little "R" after their name.

It's amazing what is considered news these days

Wal-Mart picks a side in the War on XMas. With the Walton bucks on their side, how can Bill O'Reilly not prevail? Time for us secular forces to circle the wagons. What time's the next meeting? I've lost my schedule.
