Top-O'-The-Mornin' To Ya! The Nazi Pope has struck again! I read this story about the Pope that is just... well, wrong.
Condoms don't work, Pope? Really? I really don't understand many religious conservatives. It's one thing to advocate for something you don't believe in ("artificial contraception" in this case), but it's another thing to just ignore the facts. Hello! It's 2009, Pope. Do you really think people are going to stop having sex just because you said condoms don't work? Of course not! What's worse is that some of the people who listen to you who just happen to be having sex may stop using condoms because the Pope said they don't work. Clearly they're past the point of abstinence. Either that, or maybe they'll just stop listening to you in general. I don't know, but I do know that this story is flat out ridiculous...

Catching a 'tude with Tina Fey? Not cool.
Telling someone else that the world doesn't revolve around them? Hypocritical.
Sarah Palin must not like that D-Blag is striving so early in the year for taking the title of 2009's Biggest Douche. She must relinquish her title from last year. She must!
Here is my analysis of this article soaked in all of it's Paliny crapulence.
(Jan. 8) - Sarah Palin is credited with making Tina Fey a world-wide star and
boosting Katie Couric's ratings at CBS.
Sorry... what?! Tina Fey wasn't a star before Palin emerged on the screen like a turd in a swimming pool?? I guess the fact that she was SNL's first female head writer means nothing. She was one of the top ten entertainer's of the year for EW in 2001. Emmy's don't mean anything either, I suppose. Mean Girls? Who ever saw that? I mean, really... 30 Rock? What rubbish...
But in a recent interview with conservative John Ziegler, Palin said both "exploited" her twelve-week candidacy — a fact, she said, that "says a great deal about our society.”
I guess her exploitation of her children, Alaskans, animals (including wolves, polar bears, and turkeys), the environment, John McCain, the Republican Party, women, and any other facet of the American People means absolutely nothing. She was "exploited." Give me a friggin' break. What did she expect, running for the second highest post in all the land?
[photo caption of Palin and 20 members of her ill-named family]In a new interview with a fellow conservative, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin lashed out at actress Tina Fey and news anchor Katie Couric, accusing them of exploiting her and her family. She also suggested the press treated her more harshly due to background. Palin, center, with her family in 2007, has described herself as a "hockey mom" living a typical Alaskan lifestyle.
How many of her kids actually play hockey again? Doesn't she have a kid named Puck? Oh wait, that's Bristol. And I think she named her kid "Fuuuuuck."
Fey's widely-applauded portrayal of the Alaska governor boosted SNL's ratings, while Couric’s audience grew after a series of interviews during which Palin now-famously faltered.
Very true. SNL was getting pretty cruddy. It was basically clinging to Justin Timberlake (my fiance) and Andy Samberg (cute and oddly hilarious) for dear life.
“I did see that Tina Fey was named entertainer of the year and Katie Couric’s ratings have risen," Palin said in the interview. "I know that a lot of people are capitalizing on, oh I don’t know, perhaps some exploiting that was done via me, my family, my administration — that’s a little bit perplexing, but it also says a great deal about our society.”
Seems like the word of the day for the femmebot is "exploit." Does she even know what that means? Wait...her administration? You mean the one that fires people because they just don't like them? And again with the Tina fey hating. Don't hate, Sarahpoleon. It's not a good color on you. *And for the record, it says a great deal about our society that we DIDN'T take you seriously, bruh.
The Alaska governor was particularly upset with an SNL skit during which Fey's version of Palin said, "I believe marriage is meant to be a sacred institution between two unwilling teenagers."
One of the best lines during the election season, and the truest. Shot gun wedding, anyone?
The line was a clear reference to Palin's 18-year-old daughter Bristol and her fiancé Levi Johnston. The two announced shortly before the GOP convention that they were expecting a baby and had plans to marry.
Emphasis on the word "had."
"The mama grizzly rises up in me, hearing things like that," she said of a skit. "Here again, cool, fine come attack me. But when you make a suggestion like that that attacks a kid, it kills me."
Sarah doesn't like polar bears, but she likes their cousin, the Grizzlies? Also, I wouldn't refer to Bristol as a "kid." She's 18. She's a mom. And sadly she doesn't know that the pull-out method doesn't work.
In the wide-ranging interview, Palin also faulted the McCain campaign for agreeing to a series of sit-downs with Couric after the first one appeared to go so poorly.
For the record, it didn't "appear" to go poorly -- it DID!
“I knew it didn’t go well the first day, and then we gave her a couple of other segments after that," she said. "And my question to the campaign was, after it didn’t go well the first day, why were we going to go back for more…going back for more was not a wise decision either.”
Clearly she's not going to take responsibility for her own ignorance. The McCain people tried to prep you on using big words and smart people phrases, but it didn't work, Sarah. It's not their fault that you can't complete a thought or sentence.
During one of those follow-up interviews, Palin took heat for appearing to be unable to name the newspapers or magazines she reads: "Um of them, any of them that have been in front of me all these years," was the Alaska governor's response.
In the interview with Ziegler, Palin called that answer "too flippant" and suggested the question itself offended her.
Offended her because she obviously CAN'T read. DUH.
“To me the question was more along the lines of, ‘Do you read, what do you guys do up there, what is it that you read?’”
[photo caption of the amazing, breeding Bristol]Bristol Palin, daughter of former Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin, is now a mom. The 18-year-old gave birth Dec. 27 to a baby boy named Tripp Easton Mitchell Johnston. The baby's father is Levi Johnston, shown with Bristol on Sept. 3 at the Republican National Convention.
Another poorly named child. Let's break this down for a second. Tripp (after Linda, or after what Bristol told her mom happened when she asked her "how did this happen?"). Easton... wait... she really DID name him after a hockey brand! Mitchell - the name of the guy who is probably the real father of the baby hockey puck. Johnston - to keep up the lie.
"…Katie, you’re not the center of everybody’s universe," Palin added off-handedly.
"That's my job," muttered Palin.
Palin, who has long criticized media coverage of her campaign performance, also said she is interested to see if reporters are equally tough on Caroline Kennedy as she pursues the appointment to the likely-vacant Senate seat in New York.
“I’ve been interested to see how Caroline Kennedy will be handled, and if she will be handled with kid gloves or if she will be under such a microscope,” she said.
“It’s going to be interesting to see how that plays out and I think that as we watch that we will perhaps be able to prove that there is a class issue here, also that was such a factor in the scrutiny of my candidacy versus, say, the scrutiny of what her candidacy may be," she also said.
Clearly, it's not a class issue. It's an intellect issue.

This site is absolutely splendiferous.
Here is a new story about it, in case you hadn't heard already.
Of course everyone HAS to see it again:
I think it's funny how Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki tried to protect him...

Wow! What an eye-opener! What a wake-up call! I almost felt guilty for laughing for the entire hour before watching The Office and 30 Rock (NBC has the best Thursday night lineup). I remembered when I was done watching the latter that Planet in Peril was supposed to be coming on at 9. I wondered whether I missed it. Much to my pleasure, the show was still on. I'd missed the first hour, but what I watched for the rest of the program left me with tears in my eyes, pain in my heart, and the desire to watch more.
What I first saw was the segment on shark fins. Sharks are pretty sinister-looking creatures, but one can’t deny the curiosity (and terror) they invoke in humans. I learned about chumming, tourism in South Africa, and some of the policies surrounding this Chinese delicacy.
It was pretty disgusting, actually. They kill thousands and thousands of sharks, most of the bodies seem to be MIA, and all for soup? Sharks are incredible creatures, and are crucial to the oceanic food chain. I understand that this is a part of culture, but there should at least be stronger policies and restrictions on this sort of fishing.
On a lighter note, it was pretty amazing to watch Anderson Cooper go diving with the sharks sans cage! He’s so pale and scrawny, but MAN, he’s got some cojones. Just another reason I love Anderson Cooper! You can check out the photos here.
