Maybe I’m not looking in the right places…

...but how come more journalists, pundits or bloggers aren’t writing about how America saved the Supreme Court on Tuesday? In my mind, that’s huge.

BREAKING: The state of Alaska is bigger than Bobby Jindal

I’ve checked out Van Susteren’s “GretaWire” blog a few times this election cycle and every time I do, she’s serving up steaming bowls of stupid:

This picture is on the front page of FoxNews.com…I don’t want to have the role of the defender of women…or defender of any particular women…but what’s with this pic? Governor Palin has drawn bigger crowds than any of these men ….even her state (Alaska) is bigger than any of the three governors (Florida, Louisiana, Minnesota) whose pictures appears here…

GRETA FLASHBACK: This still cracks me up. One of funniest videos of this election season.

Drudged and Not Drudged

Currently Drudged:

Man wearing Obama haircut busted on way to election night party…

The link leads to a Smoking Gun post about a young black man who was arrested for blasting Lil Wayne in his 2002 Suzuki during an impromptu street celebration. That’s all he did. Played his car stereo too loud.

Not Currently Drudged:

A black Muslim teenager said he was beaten on Election Night by four white men furious that Barack Obama was elected the nation’s next President.

Ali Kamara, 17, was walking home when four white men leaped from a gold car and started kicking him and smashing him with a baseball bat at about 10 p.m. near his Staten Island home.

“I see the car coming. They looked at me and said, ‘Obama!’ They were not happy. They had hoodies on. They started hitting me with bats and my body started vibrating,” said the Curtis High School, S.I., student.

Granted, the crime is alleged and I’d like to hear more from the police, but, as we all know, that never stopped Drudge before...

A White House Press Secretary we can believe in

According to TPM, President Obama’s Press Secretary will be Robert Gibbs. Mr. Gibbs became a hero to many Obama supporters by reducing bully boy Sean Hannity to a sputtering pool of goo who had to be shop-vacced up by famous Fox invertebrate Alan Colmes.

Heh.

Gibbsy!

I’m not crazy about chatter indicating that Rahm Emanuel may be Obama’s Chief of Staff or that John Kerry will be Secretary of State, but Robert Gibbs as press secretary sounds perfect to me.

Fire away in the comments about who you’d like to see in top slots in the Obama administration…

UPDATE: Well, Emanuel is in and several people in the comments are making a good case for him. I’m just not a big fan because of his open dissing of Dean’s 50-state strategy and trying to take all of the credit for the ‘06 wins. Here’s a Politico article of possible picks including a Kennedy two-fer: Caroline Kennedy for U.S. ambassador to the United Nations and Robert F. Kennedy Jr. for head of the EPA.

Dullwinkle the Moose

Nothing at all between the ears. Who knew?

Good on Shep for smoking out the timing of McCain’s fall.

Stay Classy, Wingnuts

Tampa Bay’s NewsTalk 820 radio host Mark Larsen “penalized” himself for being wrong about Obama getting elected by doing his show in blackface. I guess his sidekick Roger P. Schulman just did it for fun. God, I hate these people.

The dull ache of reality

And by that I don’t mean that Obama will be lackluster president.  Not at all. I think he’s going to be a very good to great president.  I mean that, shit, can you believe this is finally over?

One thing I’ll be looking forward to in the dead space between now and January is that I get to do a little PUMA hunting. I held back after the convention because I wanted wingnuts to fall for their bullshit and, quite predictably, they did (that’s just one of many examples).

But coming soon (good christ, I think my hangover will last for days), we’ll be feasting on PUMA. I’m sure Betty and Poputonian will be joining me here tearing them to shreds. ts is guaranteed to delight in the coming weeks. Christina and crew should be on fire. And Farley started sharpening his knives last night:

I’m especially looking forward to writing a series of cruelly derisive posts about PUMAs, whose blogospheric movement has represented a previously unachieved nexus of the crazy and the stupid.

Oh, man, do I have a lot of pent-up snark to unleash on these fetid fuckheads. Buckle up. The guy who exposed Darragh McCainiac Murphy for being a fraud and the PUMA conference for being a sham is tearing the muzzle off. And, boy, am I ever hungry.

OMG:

Just think: Bill Clinton’s impeachment spawned moveon.org …Hillary Clinton’s destruction spawned justsaynodeal.com

Election Day Limerick Slam

I’ve long suspected the Rumproast community is brimming with heretofore untapped poetic talent. I say we harness that creative energy to get us through these antsy hours of waiting. (At least until we can respectably start drinking.) To start us off, here are a couple of Election Day Limericks about 2008 figures who will soon be but a distant, amusing memory.

The Dumber Plumber

There once was a plumber named Joe
Who starred in a debate TV show

McCain and Fox pimped his fake story
For votes, ratings and glory

But now he’s got no job, contracts or dough.

and…

The Roar Boor

There once was a PUMA named Will
Who lied on TV without much skill

He claimed he could raise big bucks
Squeezing money from bitter, stupid fucks

But Hillary is waiting for those millions still.

Hey, I didn’t claim I was brimming with poetic talent. I know y’all can do better…

Wow

Obama’s final rally last night in Manassas, VA: “You’ve enriched my life.”
