Oliver Stone’s “W” Is Good? Seriously?

leave a comment »

Courtesy of Shattermatch:


 “W.,” starring Josh Brolin as the 43rd president, is shaping up as a hit — if not a blockbuster, at least a moneymaker poised to score multiple award nominations. That’s joke, right?

Apparently not. People who have seen the film, and there are not many at this point, have said the most astonishing part of the movie is that Josh Brolin has positively nailed Dubya. Insiders say Brolin channels Bush’s very soul in the same way Jamie Foxx inhabited Ray Charles’ skin in “Ray,” or the way Joaquin Phoenix captured Johnny Cash in “Walk the Line”. Brolin is said to be so impressive that there has been discussion of using his performance to market the entire picture.

And oh yeah, the story contains info on how to win a free Apple laptop, Video Camera and other stuff via some kind of Lionsgate “W” promotion.

Bush Hiding Afghan Failures Until After the Election

leave a comment »

The original spoiled rich kid doesn’t want you to know how bad he’s fucked up the war in Afghanistan, so he’s going to keep it a secret until after the election.

Full story here.

Bush Dines on Lobster While Capitalism Melts

with 3 comments

Where the fuck is George Bush when the economy was melting into the ground? Why, dinning on Maine Lobster, late-summer corn pudding, ginger-scented farm lamb, and graham-fucking-cracker crumble with a cocoa pod shell. Hope he didn’t dribble any on his pearly white tuxedo.

Yeah, on Monday when the market crashed Bush was dinning with the President of Ghana as yuppies all over the planet were drowning in red ink. (I guess Kanye West was wrong. It ain’t black people Clown Shoes doesn’t care about— it’s everyone.)

And oh yeah, after dinner they all went down to the east lawn and in the moonlight watched eleven members of the Lion King sing a few fucking songs for them. (No lie.)

Here’s the best part: Bush’s toast for the president of Ghana was 383 words long. When he came out to address the financial crisis yesterday afternoon his statement was 263 words long. (Priorities and all that, I guess.)

Remember when those planes hit the World Trade Center on September 11 and this dickhead sat reading a children’s book? It’s kinda like that.

Remember when Katrina drowned New Orleans and this asshole didn’t do shit for days? It’s kinda like that too.

And this fucking political party seriously thinks they deserve four more years to further fuck up this nation, dine on Maine lobster, read fucking children’s books, and sleep like babies as our nation is ravaged by terrorists, biblical acts of God, and the end of capitalism as we know it? I don’t fucking think so.

Fuck these assholes.

It’s Official: Middle Class To Bail Out the Bush Years

with one comment

The financial house of cards that was the Bush economy’s “prosperity” met with a final and crashing deathblow  today as the government of The United States placed the nation’s largest mortgage giants into what amounts as a “conservatorship” (That’s right, the Bush economy is in the same straights as Britney Spears.)

Under the plan, which is to be announced Sunday prior to the Asian markets opening, shareholders of Freddie and Fannie Mac are to be completely wiped out, the boards of the two companies are to be let go and the two mortgage giants will be brought under government control. The giants will continue to function and honor all debt (something foreign governments have been increasingly wary about in past weeks) leaving the American tax payer to fund all debt obligations.

It is truly impossible to calculate the cost to the American tax payer. Suffice it to say the price tag will run into the tens of billions of dollars— making the rescue by far the largest bailout in American history.

John McCain, not knowing which of his seven houses he is currently located at, could not be reached for comment.
