Sometimes a dog is just a dog

The New York Post issued a statement about the infamous chimp cartoon published Wednesday. (Here if you need to see it.) At the end they stated “Sometimes a cartoon is just a cartoon – even as the opportunists seek to make it something else.”

First, let me remind everyone that this is the New York Post we are talking about.

Now, a little bit of history about chimps and Obama. Just last summer.

I’m sure if the editors at the New York Post need access to YouTube, their IT people would probably relax the firewalls a bit. In the interest of credible journalism. Well at least in the interest of making up good apology statements anyway.

Once again, let me remind everyone that this is the New York Post we are talking about.

Sometimes a dog is just a dog.

Design by committee

This is really only funny to people who have never been in these kinds of meetings. Another reason to never, ever go into graphic design.

Be careful what you send people, they may just laugh at you with the world watching

This is just funny and clever stuff because it is in context. The dogs leaping into the pool isn’t bad viewing either.

And if you are a lawyer or a company with a lawyer and feel the need to send me a cease and desist letter, for anything I have done, said or will do and say, I will publicly ridicule it and you as well. I will probably pee on it instead of oven-toasting it!

Fight fair and write with care. And compete with your brain, not your lawyer. You’ll look smarter and less like a whiney-momma’s boy-cupcake-nancy-pansy.

Yup, that oughta get me at least ONE letter.

Barney, barney, barney

I won’t begrudge any dog his day, but what is the point of a Barney Christmas video every year? Is it some private joke I just don’t get?

Meanwhile, the economy is in the tank, we’re still mired down in the Middle East, gas prices are on the rise, oil production is being cut…. *sigh*

Truemors was being goofy.

So here are my comments to 

Palin Calls Bloggers “Kids in Pajamas…in Their Parents’ Home”

Here is the quote from the Fox News site:

–QUOTE–

VAN SUSTEREN: Is there anything else that has been raised or said about you in the media, either during the convention — I mean, during the campaign or since the campaign ended, that you think you need to address that has been, you know, an allegation about you?

 

PALIN: Well, unfortunately, early on, there are a tremendous number of examples that we can give regarding my record and things that could have, should have been so easily corrected if — if the media would have taken one step further and — and investigated a little bit, not just gone on some blogger probably sitting there in their parents’ basement, wearing their pajamas, blogging some kind of gossip or — or a lie regarding, for instance, the — the discussion about who was Trig’s real mom? You know, Was it one of her daughters or was she faking her pregnancy?

–UNQUOTE–

Yes, it is true that she does not say ALL bloggers blog in pajamas in their parents home, but she is stereotyping bloggers much like, oh, I dunno.. like what a GOP group did for Obama on what African-Americans eat, for example… 

http://www.dogwalkblog.com/2008/10/18/the-price-of-stupid-and-ignorance/  even though it may be true of SOME African-Americans… Couple that with the tone in her voice (check out YouTube) and her reference really is unmistakable.

Sarah Palin is just not that bright. My God, the sentence structure and subject-predicate agreement alone is horrifying! Lawyers would be endlessly employed trying to figure out which “is” meant “is” or “was” or what “is” really is. 

She is GREAT for energizing the DNC base to vote against her and non-stop entertainment for humans and canine alike, but presidential? Hmmm… no.
