Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner

Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner is hot, her interventionist policies are not

In last month’s European elections, liberalism was rejected in one country after another. Now you can add Argentina to the list of countries going conservative.

Reuters reports: “Argentines cast ballots in congressional elections on Sunday and are expected to throw out allies of President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner in a rejection of her interventionist economic policies and combative style.”

Fernandez is a leftist often compared to Hillary Clinton because she succeeded her husband, ex-President Nestor Kirchner. Under her rule, Argentina’s economy has stagnated after a six-year expansion. As a result, Fernandez has seen her approval rating fall to a mere 30%.

It appears that Fernandez’ Peronist party will lose its majority in Argentina’s lower house and barely cling to a majority in the Senate.

And she didn’t even have an auto industry to nationalize.

Energy Czar is also Ignorance Czar

by editor on June 30, 2009

Energy Czar Carol Browner should be on Dancing With the Stars. Because this woman can dance around a question like nobody’s business. Fox News’ Steve Doocy asks her if she’s actually read the Cap-and-Trade energy bill and she starts with a mean paso doble, segues into a tango, and finishes off with a creditable tap dance.

But as Doocy points out, no, she hasn’t actually read the bill. Damn conservative media being unfair again.

Damn it. Just when we were ready to write off Morgan Freeman as a Hollywood wacko for having an affair with his step granddaughter, we run across this video. It shows Freeman telling an absolutely incredulous Mike Wallace why he’s against Black History Month.

Mike Wallace: Black history month you find ridiculous. Why?
Morgan Freeman: You’re going to relegate my history to a month?
Mike Wallace: Oh, c’mon.
Morgan Freeman: What do you do with yours? Which month is white history month? Well, c’mon, tell me.
Mike Wallace: I’m Jewish.
Morgan Freeman: OK, which month is Jewish history month?
Mike Wallace: There isn’t one.
Morgan Freeman: Oh, oh. Why not? Do you want one?
Mike Wallace:No.
Morgan Freeman: No, I don’t either. I don’t want a black history month. Black history is American history.
Mike Wallace: How we gonna get rid of racism until…
Morgan Freeman: Stop talking about it. I’m going to stop calling you a white man. And I’m going to ask you to stop calling me a black man. I know you as Mike Wallace. You know me as Morgan Freeman.

He made so much sense that 60 Minutes correspondent Mike Wallace is left damn near speechless.

And for that alone, Freeman is working his way back into our good graces.

William_Jefferson

Former Louisiana Congressman William Jefferson is accused of taking hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes from a Nigerian businessman in exchange for brokering deals between an American company and a Nigerian startup.

Jefferson’s undoubtedly a crook, but we have to give him a lot of credit.

He may be the only guy who ever got money out of one of those emails from Nigeria.

Everybody laughs at Vice President Joe Biden

Everybody laughs at Vice President Joe Biden

Joe “But-But-But-But” Biden is a never-ending source of amusement. And amazement. Not to the biased media of course, who liked to ignore all but Republican gaffes.

They sent the Vice President out to speak at a LGBT fundraiser the other night. He spoke for about twenty minutes and managed to cover all the gay bases. So far, so good. His keepers were breathing a sigh of relief as he came down the home stretch. Then disaster Biden struck.

He wrapped up his remarks by saluting Tim Kaine as the “great governor of New Jersey.” The only problem is, Kaine is the governor of Virginia, not New Jersey. One would think Biden would know this, because Kaine is also chairman of the Democratic National Committee.

Sending Joe Biden out to speak is becoming an exercise in sadism. But what the hell, this was the LGBT dinner, so a little sadism will probably go unnoticed.

Don't miss <s>Phish</s> Sea Kitten when they come to your town

Don't miss Phish Sea Kitten when they come to your town

“Jump the shark” is a Hollywood phrase that means “to undergo a storyline development which is so ridiculous that previous quality is considered to have been lost.” It comes from an episode of Happy Days in which Fonzie jumped his motorcycle over a tank of sharks.

Well, if some of PETA’s past concepts hadn’t already jumped the shark, it’s latest one has. They’ve asked the rock group Phish to change its name to Sea Kitten.

“In this way, people might come to view fish the way they see cats and dogs, as smart and sensitive animals worthy of care and protection, said Ashley Byrne, a PETA senior campaigner.



“We felt that fish needed an image overall,” she continued. “They don’t receive the sympathy of the more cuddly animals. We thought that by rebranding fish as sea kittens, they might receive the compassion they deserve.”

If this is successful, PETA has its work cut out. They’ll also have to get in touch with A Flock of Seagulls, Adam Ant, the Animals, Beatles, Beastie Boys, Black Crowes, Blue Oyster Cult, Boomtown Rats, Buffalo Springfield, Byrds, Country Joe & the Fish, Crazy Horse, Buddy Holly & the Crickets, Def Leppard, Eagles, Echo & the Bunnymen, Fishbone, Hootie & the Blowfish, Howlin’ Wolf, Iron Butterfly, Los Lobos, Monkees, Pet Shop Boys, Psychedelic Furs, Ratt, Scorpions, Snoop Dogg, Steppenwolf, Stray Cats, T. Rex, Three Dog Night, Turtles, Whitesnake, Wolfmother, and, of course, the Yardbirds.

The tough part is convincing your wife that this is research.

The tough part is convincing your wife that this is research.

Sue Williams, an English artist has been given a $35,000 grant from the National Lottery to look at women’s backsides. Williams was has been handed the cash to – and we quote – “explore cultural attitudes towards female buttocks”.

It gets better. In addition to merely observing the asses, Williams will be paid to “create plaster cast moulds of women’s behinds to try to understand their place in contemporary culture.”

Emma Geliot, a representative of the Arts Council of Wales, the organization that awarded the grant, said: “This produces a tee-hee response but there is a serious point.”

Liberal Democrat Member of Parliament Adrian Sanders, a member of the Culture Committee, questioned the wisdom of the grant and suggested that others would question it, too.

The editorial board at IHateTheMedia.com is outraged by this story. It’s just not right that someone else has figured out how to get paid to do something we’ve always been willing to do for free.

Republican leader John Boehner gave a refreshingly honest assessment of the Cap-and-Trade bill

Republican leader John Boehner gave a refreshingly honest assessment of the Cap-and-Trade bill

We’d like to thank Minority Leader John Boehner, the Republican from Ohio. Because we are sooooo damn tired of namby pamby Republicans who would rather be popular than honest.

Boehner didn’t mince words about the Democrats’ Cap-and-Trade fiasco. When asked why he took an hour to read portions of the bill aloud on the floor of the House prior to the vote, Boehner said, “Hey, people deserve to know what’s in this pile of shit.”

And that reminds us of a story about Harry Truman, one of the last honest men in Washington, DC. as related by Time magazine:

Always an earthy talker, Truman once offended a friend of his wife’s by referring repeatedly to “the good manure” that must have been used to nurture the fine blossoms at a Washington horticulture show. “Bess, couldn’t you get the President to say ‘fertilizer’?” the woman complained. Replied Mrs. Truman: “Heavens, no. It took me 25 years to get him to say ‘manure.'”

We hope Boehner continues to point out manure when he sees it.

Please, God, let there be no truth to the rumor that this woman is in a sex tape

Please, God, let there be no truth to the rumor that this woman is in a sex tape

Disgruntled former John Edwards aide Andrew Young now claims there is at least one tape floating around that shows his former boss engaged in sex with baby mama Rielle Hunter.

According to the book pitch Young has been circulating among publishers, he found a video that allegedly shows the former candidate taking positions that weren’t…shall we say…part of his official platform.

According to the New York Daily News, “Young’s proposal, which one editor said ‘was impossible to put down,’ also contends that Sen. Edwards frequently clashed with running mate John Kerry during their 2004 race for the White House. And before Edwards owned up to his affair with Hunter, Young says he told him that Barack Obama had promised he’d make him attorney general if he didn’t pick him as his 2008 running mate.”

We don’t need to see the tape to know what’s on it. We’re almost willing to guarantee that at the peak of their passion, John Edwards screams out the name of his most beloved.

“I love you, John. You’re the only one I’ve ever loved.”

Joe Biden answers the quesstion, "How many trillion will the President's health care plan cost?"

Well, now, don’t think we aren’t feeling pretty puffed up with pride today. We got an email from Vice President Joe Biden asking for our help to pass the president’s health care plan.

Finally, someone has realized that we are major movers and shakers and opinion makers. To that, we say, “It’s about damn time.”

From: Vice President Joe Biden
Date: Thu, Jun 25, 2009
Subject: You’ve got to read these
To: The Guys at IHateTheMedia.com

Guys —

A few weeks ago, President Obama asked you to share your personal story about how the health care crisis has affected you and the ones you love. Hundreds of thousands of stories poured in from every corner of the country. The President and I have read through many of them ourselves — and now I’m encouraging you to do so as well.

Read these powerful, personal stories from people in your area and around the country.

And after you do, please forward this note on to as many people as you can.

For folks who don’t yet understand why health care reform is such an urgent priority, these stories make the case far better than any statistics ever could.

For those who support health care reform but haven’t yet found the time to join our campaign, these stories provide more motivation than any speech any politician could ever give.

So please read these stories, pass this note on to everyone in your address book, and help us show everyone in America why fixing our broken health care system is a necessity that just can’t wait:

Thank you,

Vice President Joe Biden

Ron Paul has introduced a piece of legislation called H.R. 1207. It’s co-sponsored by a majority of the members of Congress.

It simply grants Congress the authority to audit the Fed. You know, to give the representatives of the people the right to find out what Ben Bernanke and the boys are doing with trillions of your tax dollars.

When questioned by Congressman John Hunter (R-TN), Federal Reserve Chairman Bernanke made it quite clear that the fate of the world depends on his ability to do whatever the hell he wants under complete cover of darkness:

“My concern about the legislation is that if the GAO is auditing not only the operational aspects of our programs and the details of the programs but is making judgments about our policy decisions that would effectively be a takeover of monetary policy by the Congress, a repudiation of the independence of the Federal Reserve which would be highly destructive to the stability of the financial system, the Dollar and our national economic situation.”

Surprisingly, Bernanke neglected to mention that it would also cause global warming, swine flu, and fraudulent elections in Iran.

obama-acorn

We’re sad to report that the Association of Community Organizers for Reform Now (ACORN) is changing its name.

The organization’s leaders say its fine, upstanding reputation has been tarnished by 14 pesky investigations and indictments for voter registration fraud plus charges of financial mismanagement.

“We’ve known for many months now that the name ACORN is going to be retired,” said Marcel Reid, a former ACORN leader who has formed a breakaway group. “The name has been so damaged to the point where the leadership knows it simply can’t go on as it has with the ACORN label out front and center, especially after all of the reporting.”

Wade Rathke, ACORN’s founder, announced on his blog that ACORN International has officially changed its name to Community Organizations International (COI).

We suggest that COI should lengthen its name to Community Organizations International Terrorizing the United States (COITUS), because they’re screwing every single one of us.

Jimmy Carter says Hamas should be taken off our terrorist list. They’re the moderates, he insists.

Here’s a clip of a moderate Hamas-produced children’s TV show in which Farfur, Mickey Mouse’s merry Muslim twin, is murdered by an evil Jew over a land dispute.

Might the Obama administration use this clip as evidence that Hamas is still a terrorist organization?

Nah. They’re more likely to be sued by Disney for copyright infringement.

Update: See our later article, Welcome to “How Will He Die?” the Hamas mascot death watch guessing game.

The sad decline of #iranelection tweets

by editor on June 28, 2009

Iran iranelection tweets

Twitter is widely recognized for the role it has played in assisting the people of Iran in their struggle to regain their voice, lost in the 1979 Iranian Revolution. The tweets (Twitter messages) from supporters all around the world, particularly the United States, gave them hope, tactical and logistical information, and importantly, a megaphone to the outside world.

The volume of tweets was astonishing, producing never before seen numbers. It was so invaluable that our state department asked Twitter to postpone a critical scheduled system maintenance. Tens of thousands of tweets tagged with the hashtag #iranelection were being made each hour.

But, the chart (real-time here) above sadly tells the tale of the declining Twitter activity of this nascent second Iranian Revolution. We attribute part of it to the punishing crackdown by the Mullahs. The rest can be explained only by the short attention span of the media and its spectators. On to the next topic: Michael Jackson, which was enough to even snuff out most discussion of the Cap and Trade vote.

But, maybe, just maybe if our president would have “meddled,” and led a Reagan-like rallying cry, it might have kept the issue alive in the media, ignited the world beyond Twitter, to whole nations, to do more for the Iranian people. What could we have done more? We don’t know exactly. We never do. And we will never know.

The “hope” seems to be gone now, the once-in-a-generation chance for “change” gone. Inspiring, courageous leaders, who believe their words, make a difference.

Candidates

Rep. Yvette Clarke, a New York Democrat, told C-SPAN exactly why she voted in favor of the Cap-and-Trade bill. She’s either the most ignorant woman in Washington, DC or the most honest. Take your choice.

C-SPAN: What factors are you considering that would push you to vote yea or nay?
CLARKE: You know, there were a whole host of concerns that I had about whether we were really taking all the steps and measures we need to jettison us into the 21st century.

Yes, Rep. Clarke, Cap-and-Trade will definitely jettison us into the 21st century. We’re just not sure Rep. Clarke knows what jettison means.

So in an effort to educate, we proudly present the Merriam-Webster definition of jettison: “To throw away, of something encumbering.”

Synomyms include “get rid of, remove, discard, fling, toss, toss out, chuck out, cast aside, dispose, throw out, cast out, throw away, cast away, put away.”

So our deepest appreciation goes out to Rep. Yvonne Clarke, the only Democrat in Washington, DC willing to admit that Cap-and-Trade will throw away our future.

zahra

Zahra Rahnavard, wife of Iranian “reformist” candidate Hossein Mousavi, is often referred to as an agent of change. But this photo of Zahra stomping on homemade flags of Great Britain, the United States and Israel makes you wonder what kind of change they’re talking about.

CreepingSharia.com quotes Zahra as saying, “I and my husband are mujahids to the last drop of our blood – fighting side by side with the Muslims of the world for the sake of Islam and the Qur’an, and in confrontation of kufir and shirk embodied by the US, western imperialism and fellow travellers. My ambition is to see all Muslims rise on those lines until the day arrives when the world is transformed into an Islamic garden of faith, justice, and equality. They see it far away and we see it nearby.

We don’t often agree with President Obama here at IHateTheMedia.com, but he may have been right on when he said there wasn’t much difference between Achmadinejad and Mousavi. At least there doesn’t appear to be much difference between Achmadinejad and Mousavi’s wife.

So like your mother always said, “Be careful what you wish for, you stinking little imperialist, Zionist pig.”

super-seven-inche3er

Congratulations to Burger King. They’re the winners of this month’s award for most sexually-distasteful advertisement.

Everything about this ad revolves around oral sex, starting with the name “Super Seven Incher.” Then it moves on to the man-sized sandwich itself, which is covered with creamy mayo and perfectly lined-up with the model’s open mouth. And, of course, just in case Burger King’s been too subtle about the oral sex references, the big, bold headline says, “It’ll Blow Your Mind Away.” (wink, wink)

And then we conclude with this suggestive copy:

“Fill your desire for something long, juicy and flame-grilled with the NEW BK SUPER SEVEN INCHER. Yearn for more after you taste the mind-blowing burger that comes with a single beef patty, topped with American cheese, crispy onions and the A1 Thick and Hearty Steak Sauce.”

Damn, we can’t wait for the ad when Burger King introduces tacos.

Eight so-called republicans voted “Yes” for the Cap and Trade (American Clean Energy and Security Act) tax bill that goes against the most basic of core conservative principles.

Massachusetts' plan to pay for housing the homeless in motels

Massachusetts' plan to pay for housing the homeless in motels

First Massachusetts gave ‘em welfare, then they gave ‘em food stamps, then they gave them free cell phones through Safelink Wireless, then they gave ‘em free cars. And now, they’re spending $2,000,000 per month to house the homeless in motels.

WPRI reports:

A record number of families are being put up in motels in Massachusetts. High unemployment and the rising number of home foreclosures is the reason the state is taking this action.

Housing Massachusetts’ homeless is costing tax payers around $2 million per month. It costs an average of $85 per night to have families, including nearly 1000 children, stay in motels.

The Interagency Council on Housing and Homelessness admits that the use of motels for the homeless is not ideal, but is the best that can be done at this time.

Homeless advocates are worried that families are not getting the support of shelters with living rooms, kitchens, and play areas.

This looks like a self-defeating proposition to us:

Give everything to those who have nothing by taxing those who do have something until they don’t have anything.

56-tattoos

Belgian teenager Kimberly Vlaeminck says she wanted three stars tattooed around here eyes. But she fell asleep during the procedure and woke up with 56 stars.

We suspect tattoo artist Rouslan Toumaniantz’ true goal was to give her 57 stars as a tribute to Barack Obama’s 57 states, but as a good liberal he intentionally omitted the star representing Sarah Palin’s Alaska.

Update: The truth comes out. Vlaeminck didn’t fall asleep. She made the whole story up because her father was furious when he saw what she’d done. So it turns out she’s the one who wanted the tribute to Obama’s 57 states.

You can count on Maxine Waters, the Democrat from California, to freak out at least once per session. Yesterday was the day.

Best of all, the altercation was between Waters and fellow Democrat Dave Obey, Chairman of the House Appropriations Committee.

It all started when Obey refused to fund an earmark Waters requested for an institute that bears her name. Obey commonly refuses to fund what he calls “monuments to me.”

(Video clip of another famous Maxine Waters moment – the day she revealed the true Democrat agenda)

After Obey turned her down, Waters tried another tack. How about, she proposed, if we give the money to a different school that could then funnel the money back the first school. Waters “became irate” when Obey also turned down that transparently fraudulent request.

Obey tried to walk away to let the situation cool down, but Waters hounded him around the House floor and continued her tirade.

“She was in his face,” one witness observed, and the dispute degenerated into a “shoving match.”

A spokesman for Obey said Waters “accosted” the Chairman and “made a scene.” As one might expect, Waters was unavailable for comment.

We would like to thank the people of California’s 35th Congressional District. If it weren’t for your ability to overlook Maxine Waters obvious lunacy, we would have far less material to write about here at IHateTheMedia.com.

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

If George Bush had done a 180 on any issue, he would have been skewered for his flipflop. But when it comes to Barack Obama, the Associated Press praises him for his remarkable “presidential flexibility.”

head-up-ass

The embedded video clip shows Obama excoriating Republican opponent John McCain during the campaign for saying he would tax healthcare.

And here’s how the Associated Press reports the President’s new position on the issue:

“At the White House, Obama sidestepped when asked if he was open to taxing health care benefits — a proposal he opposed vigorously in the campaign for the White House…It was the latest in a series of signs of presidential flexibility.”

The attached photo is proof of just how flexible the president is on this issue.
