When Joe Biden fired back at the bullshit (I'm so glad he is back in the game), the Mayor backpedaled by saying that workers are the fundamentals of the economy. If you say so, Mayor, but I've never heard of people being described as being "fundamentals". I think it is definitely a sign of mental recession when the stock market drops 500 points after we learn that the financial sector is collapsing slowly but surely. By the way, The Runner Up was campaigning in La-la-land where she spouted off that she was glad that the government didn't spend any money bailing out Lehman today. Guess what? The stock market only dropped 500 points (the biggest drop since the markets opened after 9/11) because the government is releasing tax payer dollars to soften the blow, bitch.
And what a big week for Tina Fey, I mean Sarah Palin. Unless you have been asleep since Saturday night, you know that Tina Fey did an outstanding job of playing The Runner-Up. In fact, the dumbasses on Fox & Friends thought it was great, too. Were they not paying attention to what was going on? They think it was the best impression ever done on an episode on SNL. I just about fell over when "Hillary" started talking about how she is absolutely opposed to the "Bush Doctrine" to which "Sarah" giggles that she doesn't know what that is. No shit. And just in case you were wondering, the skit was deemed "sexist" by Mayor McCheese's advisors...
But speaking of the "Bush Doctrine", by god did The Runner-Up know who was interviewing her. Did anyone count how many times she said "Charlie"? I'm curious to know. Seriously, did anyone take a count? While she did a great job of pretending she was confident it was obvious that she does not know anything about anything outside of Alaska and all of her childhood friends she appointed to government positions. Certainly not Ireland, you know one of the places her staff had to retract as a place she had visited because she was merely on a plane that landed to refuel there and she never stepped of the plane. Also, she never went to Iraq as she initially claimed. Surprise! Another lie! And way to go Rudy Giuliani, trying to defend The Runner-Up by stating that there is more than one "Bush Doctrine" and that even Wikipedia lists more than the one Charlie Gibson cited. However, it seems that in the end even Wikipedia agrees with Charlie.
And the most baffling thing? Karl Rove! The day that Karl Rove says that you've gone too far is the day the world stops turning on its axis for a moment. And that day was Sunday when Karl Rove basically called the Mayor a liar.
