March 2009

While she didn’t actually confirm that she wants to return on vacation, Miss Universe seems so impressed with Gitmo that she may already be packing her bags.

Dayana Mendoza of Venezuela, visited US troops stationed in Guantanamo Bay a couple weeks ago. Here are some highlights from her blog:

This week, Guantánamo!!! It was an incredible experience

We visited the Detainees camps and we saw the jails, where they shower, how the recreate themselves with movies, classes of art, books. It was very interesting.

We took a ride with the Marines around the land to see the division of Gitmo and Cuba while they were informed us with a little bit of history.

The water in Guantánamo Bay is soooo beautiful! It was unbelievable, we were able to enjoy it for at least an hour. We went to the glass beach, and realized the name of it comes from the little pieces of broken glass from hundred of years ago. It is pretty to see all the colors shining with the sun. That day we met a beautiful lady named Rebeca who does wonders with the glasses from the beach. She creates jewelry with it and of course I bought a necklace from her that will remind me of Guantánamo Bay 🙂

I didn’t want to leave, it was such a relaxing place, so calm and beautiful.

Ms. Mendoza didn’t mention if she had been waterboarded while she was there, but what the hell. The water’s beautiful. So why not.

angie_harmonActress Angie Harmon has had it up to here with Hollywood hypocrites who call her a racist just because she disagrees with Barack Obama.

“Here’s my problem with this,” Harmon said. “I’m just going to come out and say it. If I have anything to say against Obama, it’s not because I’m a racist. It’s because I don’t like what he’s doing as President and anybody should be able to feel that way. But what I find now is that if you say anything against him you’re called a racist. But it has nothing to do with it, I don’t care what color he is. I’m just not crazy about what he’s doing…”

“If I’m going to disagree with my President,” she concluded, “that doesn’t make me a racist…It has nothing to do with it. It is ridiculous.”

You are oh-so-wrong, Angie. Surely, anyone who disagrees with Obama is a racist. Anyone who says he’s a socialist is a racist. Anyone who thinks he isn’t the greatest president in history is a racist.

And while we’re at it, anyone who doesn’t admire Michelle’s finely-toned arms is a racist, too.

So there, you racists.

One British wit asked if "Clueless" was one of the 25 DVDs.

One British wit asked if "Clueless" was one of the 25 DVDs.

The DVDs President Obama gave British Prime Minister Gordon Brown are the gifts that just keep on giving. At least they keep giving us new stories.

First, the Prime Minister was offended that he had been given a gift he could get down at the corner Blockbuster. Then, the was offended that the Obama administration hadn’t bothered to learn that he’s not a film fan.

End of story, right? Wrong.

One night last week, Brown got home from a long day of doing whatever it is the British Prime Minister does, plopped down in his comfiest chair, and popped “Psycho” into his DVD player.

Instead of seeing Janet Leigh in the shower, he saw the words “Wrong Region” on his TV screen.

Turns out the diplomatic and technological geniuses in the Obama administration didn’t know the DVD format in the United States is different than in England. So those 25 DVDs Obama gave Brown were not only insulting, but worthless.

(As an aside, we didn’t know about the format difference, either. But we’ve never held ourselves out as glittering geniuses. Glittering smartasses, perhaps, but not glittering geniuses.)

Harold Koh, President Obama's frightening nominee for the Justice Department

Harold Koh, President Obama's frightening nominee for the Justice Department

President Obama just nominated a character named Harold Koh to be the State Department’s top legal advisors. He sounds more dangerous than unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers.

According to the New York Post, Koh believes:

Judges should interpret the Constitution according to other nations’ legal “norms.” Sharia law could apply to disputes in US courts. The United States constitutes an “axis of disobedience” along with North Korea and Saddam-era Iraq.

Until he was nominated for the State Department position, Koh was dean of the Yale Law School. He believes in a “transnational legal process.” That is, he believes the distinctions between United States law and international law should be eliminated.

What would this look like in a practical sense? Well, California voters have overruled their courts, which had imposed same-sex marriage on the state. Koh would like to see such matters go up the chain through federal courts — which, in turn, should look to the rest of the world. If Canada, the European Human Rights Commission and the United Nations all say gay marriage should be legal — well, then, it should be legal in California too, regardless of what the state’s voters and elected representatives might say.

Please click on this link and read the entire article. It will frighten you for the future of this country.

It’s a bad day today. Almost nothing in the news is funny.

But what if your depression is caused by the administration, not the economy?

But what if your depression is caused by the administration, not the economy?

Are you sad? Are your spirits lower than your bank balance? Are you as depressed as the economy? Fear not. It’s Obama to the rescue. Because as all good Americans know, there is nothing this 21st century Superman cannot do.

Our thanks to Drudge for breaking the news of this latest nanny state fiasco:

The U.S. government is set to offer an online emotional rescue kit!

“Getting Through Tough Economic Times” will launch Tuesday with a media push across all platforms.

The site is meant to help people identify health concerns related to financial worries.

The feds will warn of depression, suicidal thinking and other serious mental illnesses. It will raise warning flags for: Persistent sadness/crying; Excessive anxiety; Lack of sleep/constant fatigue; Excessive irritability/anger.

The only problem is trying to remember the government’s catchy URL:

samhsa.gov/economy

May we respectfully suggest some catchier, snappier, more memorable URLs?

How about ImMoreDepressedThanMyIRA.gov. Or My401KsNotOK.gov. Or CradleToGraveHappiness.gov. Or our personal favorite, NannyState.gov.

Feel free to use them, President Obama.

pope condom cartoon Thousands of Catholics rioted in London today, burning cars and battling police while protesting what they called a “blasphemous” portrayal of Pope Benedict XVI in a Times of London cartoon.

Other Christian leaders called for the death of the cartoonist Peter Brooks for his appalling caricature of the Pope wearing a condom instead of his normal triregnum.

Oh, wait. We got our stories slightly confused. It was the Muslims who rioted over a cartoon of Allah. The Catholic response was a bit milder. They wrote letters.

“I was appalled at the tasteless cartoon depicting Pope Benedict XVI,” Cardinal Cormac Murphy O’Connor wrote in a letter to the Times. “No newspaper should show such disrespect to a person who is held in high esteem by a large proportion of Christians in the world. To pillory the Pope in this way is totally unacceptable.

“We will not accept the Pope being made the object of mockery and offence, in the media or elsewhere,” said Angelo Bagnasco, an Italian Bishop. “He represents for everyone a moral authority, which this journey has made people appreciate even more.”

No word yet on whether cartoonist Brooks has gone into hiding to avoid a potential Catholic fatwah.

State department official attempting to discuss what used to be called "terrorism'

State department official attempting to discuss what used to be called "terrorism'

According to the Middle East Media Research Institute, Sunni Islamic scholar Sheik Yousuf Al-Qaradhawi recently delivered a sermon on Qatari TV. Here’s part of what he said:

A few days ago, a Muslim asked me if we were allowed to possess WMDs — nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons. I said to him: “Yes, we must possess such weapons, but not use them.” We must possess such weapons in order to strike terror in our enemies–“Strike terror in the hearts of the enemies,” and frighten them.

Obviously, the sermon must have been delivered prior to the Obama administration’s decision that terrorist acts are no longer to be called terrorist acts, but rather “man-caused disasters.”

Just as obviously, this new terminology will cause twisting of both logic and tongues. Because if the act is now called a “man-caused disaster,” what do you call the person who commits the act?

A man-caused disaster-er?

PETA euthanized 99.7% of the pets they were given.

PETA euthanized 99.7% of the pets they were given.

If you take your dog or cat to PETA, you expect them to get kind, loving treatment. But what they really get is euthanized at a shocking rate.

According to the latest statistics, the “so-called” animal rights organization killed 99.7% of the animals they receive.

The nonprofit Center for Consumer Freedom (CCF) published documents online showing that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) killed 95 percent of the adoptable pets in its care during 2008. Despite years of public outrage over its euthanasia program, the animal rights group kills an average of 5.8 pets every day at its Norfolk, VA headquarters.

According to public records from the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, PETA killed 2,124 pets last year and placed only seven in adoptive homes. Since 1998, a total of 21,339 dogs and cats have died at the hands of PETA workers.

To repeat, only seven out of 2,124 pets were adopted. And the rest were euthanized. That means they euthanized 99.7% of all the pets that were brought to them.

We don’t much like Obama, the IHateTheMedia.com office cat. But after reading this, we’d never turn him over to the animals at PETA.

No wonder Glenn Beck’s ratings are skyrocketing.

He’s probably the only guy on television willing to express the outrage we all feel. And express it he did when Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal was naïve enough to appear on his show tonight.

We regularly cover the booming ratings at Fox News.

Well, pardon us for being slow. We had never noticed how short the skirts are on the Fox News women anchors until someone sent us this video. With the hot TV anchor babes in their short skirts and beautiful legs (In the interest of full disclosure, we should also reveal that we used to buy Playboy just for the articles).

The note attached to the video postulated that there may be a direct relationship between the rise in ratings at Fox News and the rise of the Fox women skirts. If true, it’s an interesting programming strategy.

Will Fox News ratings dominance last? Can the skirts of Fox women go any higher? Can the Fox News legs get any better? Well, they certainly appear to have legs. And pay particular attention to Laurie Dhue. We’d sure like a 3D printer copy of her.

Update: If you like this article, you’ll love Courtney Friel is the hottest of Fox News women anchors.

More and more Americans are getting their news from satirical sources. This is the best news we’ve ever heard.

Here’s how Rasumussen Reports reports their report:

Nearly one-third of Americans under the age of 40 say satirical news-oriented television programs like The Colbert Report and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart are taking the place of traditional news outlets.

Thirty-two percent (32%) of adults ages 30-39 believe this to be true, while 42% disagree, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.

Thirty percent (30%) of those ages 18-29 say programs like the two Comedy Central shows that feature news reports with a comic twist are replacing traditional news outlets, but 35% disagree and another 35% are not sure.

The only problem these days is trying to figure out if you’re watching news that’s news, news that’s satire, satire that’s news, or satire that’s satire.

It’s a complex world we live in.

Big tobacco bad, big Taliban good.

Big tobacco bad, big Taliban good.

It’s always amusing–in a sick sort of way–to see the New York Times put its prejudices on display.

On one hand, the Times doesn’t like Kirsten Gillibrand, New York’s new senator, because they fret that she may be a closet conservative. So the paper ran a front page story attacking her work as an attorney for Philip Morris back in 1996.

On the other hand, the Times has been conspicuously silent when it comes to Anthony Walker, President Obama’s nominee to head the Justice Department’s Civil Division. West defended John Walker Lindh, the American Taliban nabbed in Afghanistan after 9-11.

Our theory is that the Times is upset at the difference in results the two attorneys produced.

“The industry beat back the federal perjury investigation,” the Times said about the tobacco litigation, “a significant legal victory at the time, but not one that Ms. Gillibrand is eager to discuss.”

Lindh, on the other hand, was sent to the Big House for 20 years.

Looks like John Walker Lindh hired the wrong lawyer. And so did President Obama. Lindh might want to start smoking and hire Gillibrand for his appeal.

Dutch politician Geert Wilders has been accused of telling the truth

French attorney Yassine Bouzrou has entered a complaint in Paris on behalf of the ”Collective Against Islamophobia.”

Horrors! Bouzrou accuses Dutch politician Geert Wilders of uttering these scandalous words these words during a speech in New York:

“Paris is now surrounded by a ring of Muslim neighborhoods” and “Many neighborhoods in France are no-go areas for women without head scarves.”

As MediaWatchWatch.org said, “The idea that a Dutchman can be prosecuted in France for saying something perfectly legal in the United States is simply too absurd to contemplate.”

“If this goes through, the United States should issue speeding tickets to every driver in France.”

You homophobic Americans just aren’t following the script that ABC News expects you to follow.

Once again, the network’s bigoted “What Would You Do?” program staged a phony scene designed to demonstrate that regular Americans as the worst sort of jerks. They set up their cameras in a sports bar and had two gay actors portray flaming homosexuals. Then they planted planted other actors to heckle them.

Uh-oh. Instead of proving that Americans hate gays, the bars patrons ejected the heckler and defended the gay couple’s right to be in “their” bar.

ABC had suggested anyone who objected to the gay displays of public affection were “intolerant of the gay lifestyle.”

Instead, their hidden cameras proved that the average American will come to the defense of anyone’s whose rights are begin taken away — straight or gay or who knows what.

Now give us a big kiss, ABC, and say you’re sorry.

Joe Biden's speechwriter pauses to write Romeo & Juliet. Believe it or not!

Joe Biden's speechwriter pauses to write Romeo & Juliet. Believe it or not!

How’s that open, transparent administration thing going for you, President Obama?

More than 92,000 people submitted questions for the President’s highly-hyped internet Town Hall. And in one of history’s most remarkable coincidences, all five of the fully-identified questioners have something in common.

Here’s how the Washington Post explains it:

But while the online question portion of the White House town hall was open to any member of the public with an Internet connection, the five fully identified questioners called on randomly by the president in the East Room were anything but a diverse lot. They included: a member of the pro-Obama Service Employees International Union, a member of the Democratic National Committee who campaigned for Obama among Hispanics during the primary; a former Democratic candidate for Virginia state delegate who endorsed Obama last fall in an op-ed in the Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star; and a Virginia businessman who was a donor to Obama’s campaign in 2008.

Quick. Somebody call Ripley’s Believe it Or Not.

This is about as likely as the guy who found his wedding ring inside a flounder ten years after he lost it on a fishing trip. Or the monkey who typed Shakespeare. Or Joe Biden going an entire day without putting his foot in his mouth.

During his increasingly rare moments of clarity, 77-year old Goofy hates being compared to aging Hollywood starlets.

Sarah Palin came out blasting in a recent speech.

She criticized the Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund and actress Ashley Judd, the organization’s celebrity spokesperson, for their campaign to halt aerial wolf hunting in Alaska.

According to CNN, Palin called on Republicans to “stand up to those goofy Defenders of Wildlife celebrity starlets who don’t even know about Alaska.”

This did not sit well with Goofy. When contacted at his home at the Disney Home for Retired Cartoon Characters, the show biz verteran antimatedly said, “Gawrsh, nobody compares me to Ashley Judd and gets away with it. I’ll have the last laugh on that Palin bimbo. Uh-hyuck-hyuck-hyuck.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s popularity is tracing the trajectory of the Hindenburg.

According to a new Rasmussen Reports poll, 60% of likely voters now view her unfavorably. And that’s the good news. The bad news for Queen Nancy is that 42% give her a “very unfavorable” rating. The trend is not her friend, either. Her favorability score has plummeted 7% in just two weeks.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid doesn’t fare much better. 45% give Reid thumbs down, but only 23% approve of his performance.

According to Rasmussen’s analysis, “Congress is feeling voter anger over executive bonuses paid by AIG after it received a massive taxpayer bailout.”

But wait. It’s not just congressional Democrats who are polling poorly. Two-thirds of Americans think President Obama is likely to hike income taxes on people earning less than $250,000 a year.

We did our own poll. 67% said Pelosi is full of crap. 54% said she should cut down on the botox. 39% said, “Nancy Who?”

MGM, the studio that featured the Stooges in a series of shorts and features, says it expects to begin filming this fall and the film should be released in 2010.

Introducing the latest style from Keith Olbermann's new fashion line.

Last week Keith Olbermann complained about a fake Twitter page and suggested that it was part of a nefarious plot by arranged by Fox News.

Oops. Media Bistro reports that the Olbermann Twitter page may have been run by MSNBC for “several months.” (In fact, the cable network admittedly operates a separate Olbermann Twitter site.)

“It turns out the account Olbermann may have been referring to @KeithOlbermann, which currently has 12,099 followers was set up by someone who was friendly enough to later give that account to MSNBC, which has had it for several months. But Olbermann wasn’t made aware of that not-so-minor detail, insiders tell us.”

“What’s bothering you this week,” his psychiatrist said. “Are you still having those bad dreams about Rupert Murdoch?”

President Obama lit up the room. But this time it wasn't with his smile. (Photo credit: Lisa Jack)

Last week’s high profile dipping of the presidential toe into cyberspace demonstrated the dangers of letting the people ask questions without the benefit of a teleprompter.

“There was one question that was voted on that ranked fairly high. That was whether legalizing marijuana would improve the economy and job creation,” Obama chuckled. “I don’t know what this says about the online audience.” 



“This was a fairly popular question. We want to make sure it was answered. The answer is no, I don’t think that is a good strategy to grow our economy,” he said to a laughing East Room audience. 



More than 90,000 questions were submitted to the White House website. Forget energy, the economy, terror, and healthcare. Seven of the 10 questions receiving the most votes revolved around the legalizing pot.

As usual, President Obama blew smoke. But for once his audience appreciated it.

Lies. Deceptions. Intrigue. Skullduggery. Everything except sex.

This is another one of those stories the media would be all over if it involved a president named Bush instead of one named Obama.

Nearly two months after President Obama named a high-level panel to help solve the economic crisis, the group still hasn’t held a public meeting. The Presidential Economic Recovery Advisory Board initially said it would meet every few weeks. That was changed to monthly. And that was updated to four times a year.

Here’s how Politico.com reports it:

(C)omments from board members and Obama himself indicate that some members of the panel are meeting, in smaller gatherings that have not been announced or opened to the public. And that raises the question of whether an administration that prides itself on openness and transparency is in fact finding it more convenient to conduct public business in private. 



Now, the administration finds itself in a Catch-22: It does not want to say that the president’s economic panel, announced amid much fanfare, is not meeting during the worst economic crisis in generations. But if it is meeting, where’s the announcement, the agenda, the minutes? In short, where’s the sunshine?

Rest assured, we’ll follow up on this story tomorrow. Or next week. Or in late spring. Or whenever this group actually meets. Or doesn’t meet. Or whatever.

President Obama daintily holding a beer as if he's at a tea party. Not to be confused with an anti-tax Tea Party.

President Obama daintily holding a beer as if he's at a tea party. Not to be confused with an anti-tax Tea Party.

While the rest of America is scrimping and saving and cutting back on unnecessary expenses, the Obamas are busily hitting the town as often as possible. In office just two months, the president and Mrs. O are already setting new records for socializing, wining and dining.

The New York Times, unofficial mouthpiece of the Democratic party, reports on the first couple’s busy social life outside of the White House: “‘Everywhere you go, you’re wondering whether or not you’ll run into them,’ said Washington’s mayor, Adrian M. Fenty, who has lunched with the president and first lady.”

The Times breathlessly describes the president “sitting courtside recently alongside astonished fans at the Verizon Center as he cheered on the Chicago Bulls…” Then details how the Obamas visited the Kennedy Center (twice!), The Alvin Ailey dance troupe, and “a musical tribute to Senator Edward M. Kennedy.” (The Unsinkable Molly Brown, perhaps?)

The Obamas are also dining out as often as possible, at both upscale restaurants and greasy spoons: Equinox, Bobby Van’s Steakhouse, B. Smith’s, Georgia Brown’s, Ben’s Chili Bowl and Five Guys Burgers and Fries have all fed the prez.

Letitia Baldrige, former White House social secretary to Jackie O, said of the Obamas’ socializing, “It’s a great bank of good will in which they’re making deposits every day.”

Actually, what she meant to say is, “Banking crisis, schmanking crisis. Every day’s a party!”

Please do not be shocked. We are about to use internet terminology we have never before used at IHateTheMedia.com:

WTF?

Sorry, but that’s the only possible reaction to the new commercial for Quizno’s new “Toasty Torpedo” subs. You know, the ones shaped like giant male genitalia. Watch the commercial. We’re pretty sure you’ll agree.

The commercial features a talking oven that seems to be the gay cousin of HAL, the computer from the movie “2001.” It starts with the gay oven talking to a Quizno’s worker about how much they “both enjoyed” something. We aren’t privy to what that something may have been, but the mere memory of it causes the worker to look down at his crotch.

Then the gay oven says “Put it in me, Scott,” referring to his tasty, toasty torpedo.

There’s just so much that’s wrong and tasteless about this commercial that you really wonder who it’s aimed at, who approved it, and why.

The whole commercial comes across like some strange homage to gay, sado-mechanical sex.

Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Keep your cotten pickin' hands off Jack DeSantis' AIG bonus.

Keep your cotten pickin' hands off Jack DeSantis' AIG bonus.

Don’t get on the wrong side of Jake DeSantis, an executive vice president at A.I.G. Well, to be more precise, Jack’s a former executive vice president, because he just publicly resigned in a scatching op-ed piece in Tuesday’s New York Times.

He said “we in the financial products unit have been betrayed by A.I.G. and are being unfairly persecuted by elected officials.”

“I take this action after 11 years of dedicated, honorable service to A.I.G. I can no longer effectively perform my duties in this dysfunctional environment, nor am I being paid to do so. Like you, I was asked to work for an annual salary of $1, and I agreed out of a sense of duty to the company and to the public officials who have come to its aid. Having now been let down by both, I can no longer justify spending 10, 12, 14 hours a day away from my family for the benefit of those who have let me down.”

He continued:

“We have worked 12 long months under these contracts and now deserve to be paid as promised. None of us should be cheated of our payments any more than a plumber should be cheated after he has fixed the pipes but a careless electrician causes a fire that burns down the house.”

But the part we loved most was when DeSantis said he would not return his $742,006.40 bonus. Instead, he said he’ll donate ever after-tax dollar to charity because he doesn’t “want to see them disappear back into the obscurity of A.I.G.’s or the federal government’s budget.”

When Jack is making those charitable donations, we hope he remembers the IHateTheMedia.com Fund for Undercapitalized Bloggers.

It’s for the children.

American protestors have a lot to learn from our European brothers. Or, to be more precise, from our European sisters.

Police officials say an Italian porn star stripped last Tuesday at the Milan stock exchange to protest the financial crisis. Laura Perego climbed on to a table inside the exchange covered only by her mutandines (BabelFish, don’t fail us now) and a painting of Italian flag

Why aren’t the American networks reporting this story 24/7? They should cover this brave, patriotic woman at least as much as Cindy Sheehan.

Or uncover her, as the case may be.
