Barney Frank tosses the Gay Card

October 29, 2008

Barney Frank now alleges that he is being picked on for his horrible oversight of the Housing/Financial Market, not because of his past performance…but because he’s gay.  That would make as much sense as Dubya claiming he is picked on because he’s straight…or a man…or right handed. 

Mr. Frank, you might want to look in the mirror and take some responsibility.  At least some responsibility for the housing crisis, some responsibility for wanting to cut military spending by 25%, and at least some responsibility for wanting to substantially raise taxes.

Not up to Whose Standards?

October 7, 2008

MM has reported on NBC’s reasoning for pulling a skit from its website.  NBC has reported that the skit will be edited and reposted as soon as the editing is complete.  In my eyes the only thing that deserves to hit the editor’s room floor is the line “People who deserve to be shot”.  I do believe the Sander’s have some ‘splainin to do, but they are real people.  The last thing we need is some psychopath finding these slime and shooting them.  If anything else is edited out, NBC has cemented themselves as a Corporation who has pledged their allegiance to the the Left Wing financiers, and will even censor themselves to retain their loyalty. 

MM reports

Peter Viles at L.A. Land reports that Saturday Night Live is rewriting its forbidden Soros/Sandler-bashing
bailout skit because it “didn’t meet their standards.”

Translation: It didn’t meet George Soros’s standards!

The scoop:

A “Saturday Night Live” skit that skewered President Bush, Democrats, homebuyers and subprime lenders for their roles in the mortgage meltdown was removed from the program’s website because it “didn’t meet out standards,” a spokesman for the show said Tuesday. An edited version of the skit will be re-posted online soon, the spokesman said.

The skit, a parody of a C-SPAN news conference, ridiculed subprime borrowers, housing speculators and Herbert and Marion Sandler, the real-life couple who built Golden West Financial into a subprime lending powerhouse and sold it to Wachovia before the subprime collapse. At one point in the skit, the Herb Sandler character says he made $24 billion off the subprime boom. Graphics then appear labeling the Sandlers as “People who should be shot.”

“Upon review, we caught certain elements in the sketch that didn’t meet our standards,” a spokesman for the program said in an E-mail message Tuesday. “We took it down and made some minor changes and it will be back online soon.”

O’Reilly Gets Frank with Frank

October 3, 2008

I saw this mess before the debate.  The audio was off, but it looked brutal.  Weird thing is that I listened to Glenn Beck two days ago for the first time and O’Reilly was on shilling his book. He told Glenn that he was about to take Frak apart and it looks like a self-fulfilling prophecy
