Mitt Romney gave a speech at the annual NAACP event and was booed. REALLY? I thought a billionaire born into privilege with a wife who teaches horses to dance would really connect. Romney acknowledged that many barriers still exist for African Americans, especially in his neighborhood. Steve Rosenfield has a rundown of the entire speech.
2012 is the hottest year in recorded history, the 10 hottest years have all occurred in the last 12 years, and weather is going F’ing crazy! ( I hope you appreciated that I cleaned it up right there).
So we ask world famous climate scientist George Will who has studied the issue and has concluded that its hot because ” it is summer, get over it!”. Its that kind of inquisitive mind and hard nosed journalism that makes George Will so useful to the man.
Leon Panetta, like most Secretaries of Defense, lives by the credo “if you can’t enjoy invading countries and killing people, why even get up in the morning”. 60 minutes did a Puff -Piece on him and yet he still gets stumped by the first question: “how many countries are we actively fighting in right now”. He doesn’t’ know, which is very disturbing, but what really makes you feel horrible is that he laughed about it. Hey, maybe the guy in charge of all the killing doesn’t’ get to cavalierly laugh about it.
Luke Russert, the worlds most successful intern, has been our least favorite reporter for some time. If you read Huffington Post then you already know everything that Luke is about to tell you. He gets caught at being horrible at his job by Martin Bashir when he gets asked a direct question about the antics of the congressional republics. It is a pretty amazing example of EVERYTHING that is wrong with the 4th estate. LEts remember that he is being paid hundreds of thousands of dollars a year to be a “newsman”.
HAPPY 4th of JULY! Steve Rosenfield starts us off by reminding us that even though our fate is in the hands of largely corrupt sociopaths, America is still the greatest country in the world! (as far as we know, we really don’t know much about other countries)
Bill Oreilly , Mitt Romney and Chris Christie are on the phone and all sit in and comment on this weeks show!
Darell Issa is sure that Eric Holder has been giving guns to criminals to use in Mexico so that they can then pass gun laws in the United States. Do you follow that ? Me neither. And even though his theory has been debunked by Forbes magazine, he still hopes people don’t notice that he’s heading a political witch-hunt that amounts to nothing.
Plus Miss USA contest happened, and yes there still is a Miss USA contest. The new Miss USA thinks “Pretty Woman” is a great example of movies that show woman in a positive light, and yes we make fun of it.
David Feldman, the prodigal son of the Jimmy Dore Show, is back and treats us to much hilarity.
Hilarious phone calls from Mitt Romney and Drunk Bill Orielley as performed by the inimitable Mike MacRae and written by Frank Conniff, Robert Yasumura and Jim Earl. Why do I love Bill O’Rielley when he is drunk way more than sober? I don’t know, but if he was drunk on his show every bright I would never miss it.
“Rip Torn’s Hollwood Drunk Tank”! is back and better than ever! This week Rip takes on the Adam Corolla “women aren’t funny” scandal, and of course Rip has a completely unique take. Its another amazing job by Mike MacRae!
More and more young people are admitting that they question the existence of god. Now to me that sounds like a good thing, but to our good friend Bill O’Rieely and his panel, it is another sign of the godless public school teachers indoctrinating our kids into their liberal ideology. We break down the entire segment and add some much needed comedy to it.
Fast and Furious has turned out to be a big nothing. Daryl Issa has been trying to find a scandal somewhere and he just keeps
coming up with a big goose egg. The republicans in the congress voted to hold Eric Holder in contempt of congress. But thanks to some great investigative reporting from Fortune Magazine, we now know that there is no “there” there, and the congress ends up being the ones with egg on their face.
