Breitbart Fail

It looks like my old nemesis Andrew Breitbart is going to fail on his attempt to smear another well-meaning black person, in this case Shirley Sherrod. Breitbart's group, Whites for Getting Scary Black People Fired, or WGSBPF, keeps trying to prove how terrible all of these various black people are through misleading, selectively edited videos.

This time, though, it looks like Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack is backtracking on her ouster and she is becoming a symbol of the victims of hateful Tea Party gotcha operations against respectable black people.

Oh, and we're supposed to believe that these Tea Party types aren't racist? Bullshit.

The future of news

Has anyone else noticed this awesomely trashy web ad purporting to offer "BREAKING NEWS" relating to an expose of a berry of some sort?

It amuses me/makes me sadface that this image represents a lowest common denominator view of what "news" is: a hot chick on TV in a revealing tank top, urgently offering unimportant information that turns out to be an ad.

Also: in the future, will female newscasters actually start wearing less clothing? Fox already has a well-enforced porn aesthetic (for the women). How low will television news get?

Tea Party wackos holding a "Woodstock for conservatives"

"There will also be musical entertainment, from acts that have toured the Tea Party circuit, such as Lloyd Marcus. In addition to Palin, other speakers include Joe "The Plumber" Wurzelbacher, former Saturday Night Live actress Victoria Jackson, Andrew Breitbart and others."

I'm sorry, Lloyd Marcus?

Ah, yes, Lloyd Marcus the black Tea Partying singer! Yee haw!

Oh and look, he's also a talented artist.

I now use twitter. !, I guess.

I actually need it for work because apparently twitter is the new advertising or something.

But there are some laughs in the twitterverse:

Andrew Breitbart supporting fucking racists

I kind of suspected that Breitbart was crazy as well as angry, but Salon blows the lid off of his whole despicable charade this morning. Turns out Breitbart's golden boy James O'Keefe is just a little bit (a lot) white supremist-ey! Fuck you James O'Keefe. Fuck you Andrew Breitbart.

Fucking 'Lost'

It doesn't help that I fell asleep for the last 20 minutes last night, but this is the best thing I've read about last night's season 6 premiere on the internet so far today:

"Oh yeah, and John Locke is still dead in a coffin on the island, but then the still-living Locke, in the wake of manipulating Ben into killing Jacob, turned into a smoke monster and killed a bunch of annoying characters waving guns around. Then the smoke monster Locke scoffed at how pathetic the real Locke, who's dead on the beach, was, plus there's also the original Locke landing in Los Angeles and chatting with Jack in the baggage claim office. Three Lockes! I should've been annoyed by the whole thing, but all I could think was, "Who is this fake smoke-monster Locke, and where has he been all of our lives?""

The new permanent freakshow on the right side of your web browser

Has anyone else noticed this ultra-cheap looking ad sidebar that persists on the right side of a large portion of the internet now? Notice how the images don't necessarily have anything to do with what is being advertised. It seems that they just focus group tested high in distracting users from what they are reading. Can I have my old internet back please?
