You know, if you let John McCain be John McCain, he’s actually pretty funny. Here he is with his wife Cindy and with Tina Fey.
Tuesday morning, Jordan was assigned to draw a scary Halloween mask in art class.
By the end of the day, Jordan was being told he could not return to Pooler Elementary School until he passed a psychological evaluation.
Memo to the next presidential candidate who has an agreement to show up on David Letterman: don’t cancel!
This isn’t the worst political ad of all time but it will rank up there. The Michael Dukakis 1988 ads – which to this day no one can understand – are still the benchmark for awful. What makes the latest John McCain ad so terrible? In his latest ad he uses a speech from Obama in which he is praising McCain for his work in the Senate. The goal of the ad is to show voters that even Obama likes and respects McCain’s work and that McCain should be President. But, what voters take away from the ad is an entirely different perspective. They see Obama as someone who can reach across the aisle and work across party lines to get things done – exactly the image they want conveyed on McCain.
Perhaps he should borrow this spoof ad made by Bill Maher:
Goldman Sachs is on course to pay its top City bankers multimillion-pound bonuses – despite asking the U.S. government for an emergency bail-out.
The struggling Wall Street bank has set aside £7billion for salaries and 2008 year-end bonuses, it emerged yesterday.
Each of the firm’s 443 partners is on course to pocket an average Christmas bonus of more than £3million.
The size of the pay pool comfortably dwarfs the £6.1billion lifeline which the U.S. government is throwing to Goldman as part of its £430billion bail-out.
As Washington pours money into the bank, the cash will immediately be channelled to Goldman’s already well-heeled employees.
The popular Montreal comedy duo Marc-Antoine Audette and Sebastien Trudel, aka “The Masked Avengers” ( Les Justiciers Masqués ) are notorious for prank-calling heads of state and celebrities who take themselves a little too seriously. Surely none take themselves so seriously as Sarah Palin. She was pranked by the pair today when they social-hacked their way past security and convinced her she was speaking to Nicolas Sarkozy, the president of France.
Fake Sarkozy tells Palin that his wife is “hot in bed,” drops plenty of hints it’s a fake call, and suggests Palin would make a good president “one day you too.” She replies, “well, maybe in eight years!”
