EARLY DRAFT....I'm late to the party, but yeah, this is pretty funny. Still: what about the Christian Scientists?

I... guess.

Pretty funny for Republicans. But they just couldn't resist the "Obama Loves Muslims" line at the end could they?

Still: what about the Christian Scientists?

I love their unique insight on health care reform?

Still: what about the Christian Scientists?

Their unique ability to run a faith-based newspaper that is credible and readable?

Because there are too many goddamned Matts around here.

Funniest is the felt need to include the heading, "Parody." Really? Actual memos don't look like that?

Speaking of funny, from CNN.com just now:

"Still, it was Bonham who may have been the star of the show. At 41, he is older than his father was -- 32 -- when he choked to death on his own vomit in 1980."

His OWN vomit. We are all Stumpy Pepys now.

More skin on HBO.

Signing off & heading for the tub.

My favorite: "the passion of the Muslim people" (Yeah, right. KA-BOOM! No way!)

"H-E-Double Toothpicks" That writer knows his Mormons. Brilliant piece from an unlikely source. Credit where due.

His OWN vomit.

Say what you will about John Bonham--he was not a rightwing blogger. He choked on his own vomit, not Dan Bartlett's.

what about the tribal Africans and their gift of extending the holiday season by inventing Kwanzaa?

Or did Oprah already co-opt that vote? Aw raspberries!

They forgot the Wiccans! Their love of the Earth and Nature. Their Rule of Three. Some awfully good material in there.

What I'm waiting for is a repeat of the MTV interview with Romney similar to the one Clinton consented to in 1996 and answered the weighty question of "boxers or briefs?"

For Romney it would be, "Dog, what up with that weird underwear?"

This whole thread is hilarious.

Oh, dear. At first I thought that quote at the top was the "parody," and then (with some help from Google) I realized he really did say that drivel about "approachability" and "frequent prayer."

Still, as an Episcopalian, I'm offended that Romney mentioned neither our talent for calisthenics (sit/stand/kneel/repeat) nor our ability to love the Lord with a cocktail in hand.

Given how the WS otherwise takes itself waaay too seriously, I think poking fun at Romney suggests that they might already feel 2008 is lost.

The Rethug field has got to be one of the weakest in history - a Mormon, a Southern Baptist minister who never went to college (no a real college), a serial adulterer, a B-actor, and KKK closet case, a Bushie Butt-boy . . . Have I left anyone out who's polling more than 2%?

Posted by: JeffII on December 11, 2007 at 7:59 PM | PERMALINK

That was hilarious! :-D
