Weekly Darwin 'dumbest of them all' awards for the week ending November 28, 2009


Although there were many contestants this week for our coveted award, one behavior followed by innocuous comments and more 'dumb' behaviors top all others.

Windermere, Florida: In the wee hours of the morning following Thanksgiving day, Mrs. Tiger Woods, in what appears to be an attempt to disfigure or kill the 'goose that lays the golden eggs' in a domestic violence episode, by 'going ghetto' on him easily deserves this weeks award. Along with her, honorable mention belongs to Tiger himself and all others advising the Woods' family in this matter.

We usually let events and comments stand alone for the Darwin Awards, but in this matter some comment is warranted.

Obviously, the Woods' advisers don't know about 'the up and over' in 24 hours formula in such matters......'tell the real story, do it quickly, so speculation does not go viral'........Kobe Bryant and David Letterman are examples of how to diffuse negative media attention.

Now, the Woods have a viral episode that threatens his sterling image and thereby threatens his considerable financial empire, mostly garnered from huge product endorsements.

Tiger? In this situation 'Silence is not Golden'. Your silence has become very loud and expensive while it tarnishes your public image. Now that celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred is representing 'the other woman', be sure you have your checkbook handy.

And, because of the way this 'no-story' has been handled so far, we predict that Tiger Woods etal. will be paparazzi bait for the next little while. Surely there is more to come and it will just get worse for our beleaguered Tiger.

JOHN FITZGERALD KENNEDY SHOT DEAD!


This was the WORLD WIDE headline on November 22, 1963, a headline that reverberated around the globe 46 years ago today. The President of the United States had been killed by assassin Lee Harvey Oswald in Dallas, Texas.

Today, on the anniversary of this memorable moment in history, not one mainstream media outlet even mentioned the passing of, the anniversary of the death of an iconic President who inspired hope and the values of freedom throughout the world that continue today.

This Sunday's so-called 'talking head' political 'shows' apparently 'forgot' all about JFK's assassination anniversary. At the same time 'the political seniles' in the 'forms without substance' whores Lieberman, Fienstein and others were on the TV screens today jawing under their plastic surgery jobs about health care and other things they have absolutely no clue about on these same 'shows'.

Pure and simple: THIS IS A MAINSTREAM MEDIA DISGRACE!

This MEDIA DISGRACE is exactly why this blog and so many others have been created. THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA DISGRACES not only our history but also our present.

On other mainstream outlets, the public heard about a vampire movie that made millions of dollars over the weekend, Sarah Palin's book tour and Jon and Kate's mediation talks (Kate refused the flowers Jon sent her, you know). THIS on ABC, CBS and NBC 'News'.

No thinking person would expect any big tribute to a fallen President after 46 years. But, at least a mention of the anniversary of it would have been in order.

Mainstream media? Your shallow and ignorant coverage of what you determine to be 'news' is why you have lost your credibility in delivering your 'commodity'.

To NOT give any acknowledgement to the anniversary of JFK's death is a DISGRACE TO YOUR 'PROFESSION', THE AMERICAN PEOPLE and THE NATION!

Weekly Darwin 'dumbest of them all' awards for the week ending November 21, 2009


Again this week there is a plethora of contenders for the weekly award that confound thinking people into questioning evolution. These 'throw-backs', through their behaviors and/or statements can boggle the mind.

Here they are:

Brownsville Texas: Anthony Carrazco, 19, who tried to sell marijuana by going door to door doing it. Of course he happened upon the apartment of a police officer who arrested him and hauled him off to jail.

The bevy of 14 year old girls who spent over $72 million on the opening day of the latest vampire movie, their parents who paid for it and the media that reported it.

Bob Brinker (possibly genetically related to Glenn Beck), the so-called radio 'money' talk show host who on his 'starship money' (Yes, 'The Starship' is what he calls his show) show enjoys revisionist history when he speaks of how the recent economic meltdown occurred and strongly supports new Wall Street executive bonuses for the crooks who put the country in it's current mess.

The revelation there may be a Palin/Beck ticket in 2012 on the GOP side for the presidency of the USA.

Joe the plumber, speaking in Logan, Utah who is not supporting Sarah Palin for president in 2012, since she 'dissed' him in her book.

The New Jersey woman who left her life savings in a plastic bag at a religious shrine for 'safe-keeping' and went on vacation. She returned a week later, a groundsman had found the money and she got it back.

Queen of media saturational-hype, Sarah Palin, speaking about foreign policy on the Sean Hannity show and repeatedly confused Iran and Iraq in convoluted thought processing. After Hannity corrected her at break time, she returned and continued to do it.....4 more times. Sarah chirped, "we need to stop our imports to IRAQ so 'Armajad' understands Americans are just not going to stand for this stuff anymore (by gosh)".

The Palin 'fans' who stood for hours in bad weather waiting for a book store to open so they could buy 'going rogue', and every one else who paid good, hard earned money to buy it.

The burned out chandelier lite bulb, Sherry Johnston, Levi's mom, who in a plea deal was found guilty of an illegal drug sale (5 other charges were dismissed) and will do 3 years in prison in Alaska.

....and this weeks winner is:

.....drum roll................

Michael Prank, 40, from Lomita, California who upon his return from Australia was detained by customs agents at LAX after 13 live exotic lizards were found taped on his chest (2 monitor lizards and 11 skinks). Prank is in jail.

And that's it for another week, folks.

Sarah Palin and Carrie Prejean-- Secret Democratic Operatives?


Given recent mainstream media reporting, thinking people might get the idea that Sarah Palin and Carrie Prejean could very well be secret Democrat Party operatives while working the "celebrity without portfolio" circuit.

As the public grew tired of the antics of pop culture icons Paris Hilton, Linsay Lohan, Brittany Spears and others, new 'meat' was needed for carnivorous voyeurs to devour. So, now we have soul-sisters Sarah and Carrie taking center stage in the media-mud tank. And the Palin/Prejean Teams are milking it for as much as they can get for as long as they can get it.

Both Sarah and Carrie are at the mainstream media saturation point. Still, the media continues following them and seemingly the people love feeding on their carcasses. Both women must like it; or, at least they like the money that comes with it because they continue to do it.

But, could there be something else going on here. Something very different and insidious. Could it be that Sarah and Carrie are secret high level Democratic Party operatives? This question is asked because one BIG issue is standing out for all to see. With the exception of Barack Obama, Palin and Prejean have done more to embolden and increase the numbers of the Democratic Party than anyone or anything else, while at the same time systematically driving the Republican Party toward oblivion. For example, in September 2009, several respected pollsters found that less than 20% of voting citizens identify themselves as Republican, down 15 points from a year earlier.

Some recent facts and observations:

Sarah's book, Going Rogue has been met with not mixed, but across the board disdainful, negative reviews. Even from very conservative right wing quarters, Sarah's 'biography' has been called "fabrication", "total fiction" ...... "She's a joke" as one conservative critic put it. Associated Press 'Fact Checked' Sarah's accounts of the what she writes and finds gross misrepresentations of what she says. Even the tabloid FOX NEWS discounts her recollection of how her campaign as a Vice Presidential candidate was stated in her book.

Sarah dismisses all of the criticism by commenting that the vitriol is based on what she calls "opposition research" and does not support any of her contentions she wrote in her book with any substantive response.

Sarah continues her 'book tour' in rural areas of the country and always appears with a banner behind her blasting out 'COUNTRY FIRST' and in all presentations invokes 'God' and 'The Lord' and almost always accepts any 'nice things' that may be said about her on behalf of 'our troops serving in the military'.

All of this is vomit to any thinking person. But our Sarah seems to get away with it in the possum-pie eating/bible belt territories she frequents as she takes their money. This is a new sort of revival tent of salvation meetings of years past that went away when Marjoe busted the genre 50 years ago. It is a new mousetrap that brings in the bucks.

Country First? What is first in 'Sarah world' is SARAH. Not much else matters. If Sarah was so interested in 'the country' she would have better knowledge of it.

God? The Lord? Hey, this plays well in religious nut fundamentalist territory and even if Sarah's fans must do without medicine and/or food they will buy Sarah's book even if they can't read. Maybe one of the 'gran chiren' will read it to them.

But, is there more? Is Sarah also a Democratic operative?

Meanwhile, the queen of media these past few weeks, Carrie Prejean, is sticking to her guns as well. And big 'guns' they are since her implants.

It seems Carrie has taken Sarah's blueprint for media attention and taken it to a new depth while increasing her bank account along the way.

'God' and 'The Lord' seem to be big sellers with a certain small, but well paying population and Carrie seems to have found that financial formulaic magic.

Carrie burst onto the national scene when she won the Miss California title from an organization not associated with the Miss America pageant, but from a commercial project headed by Donald Trump. In her 'Q&A', Carrie wrapped herself in the flag, ate some apple pie and spoke of her 'christian values', instilled by her 'christian' family. Her answers became a subject of controversy when she disparaged the gay community. Seeing a niche audience to sell their products, Carrie won the contest. To better 'sell' products, pageant business officials suggested breast implants for 'miss california' to which Carrie complied. However, after being uncooperative with pageant hierarchy, she was fired and officials didn't pay for the breast surgery. Carrie sued, but settled out of court after her pornographic sex video surfaced. At the time Carrie said that 'the tape' was the biggest mistake of her life, happening a long time ago.....totally against her 'christian' values and apologized to her christian fans who hold the same values she has. (Fans???)

Since this time, Carrie has gone on to media stardom.

But wait! Today, radaronline.com unveiled 7 subsequent and new Carrie Sex tapes plus countless pornographic nude photos. Apparently Carrie didn't learn from 'the biggest mistake of her life' and has seemingly, or unseemly as the case may be, made a cottage industry of porn with herself as it's star. We will suppose the Bible will approve of Carrie's 'christian values' as she pointed out very recently that the Bible allows for breast augmentation. Of course no one has asked Carrie for book, chapter and verse for her dismissal of any criticism from her 'fans'.

So, we see our 'soul-sisters', Big Hat-No Cattle Sarah and Big Tits-No brain Carrie playing to the same audience......an audience that has left the fundamentalist religious Republican base for other pastures because even they got the hypocritical message here.

But, the question remains......are Sarah and Carrie surreptitious Democratic Party operatives? If so, then we'll need to track the money......because certainly money would be involved because these girls understand what a dollar can do. If not, these two women have done more to destroy the Republican Party than any others in the history of our once great country and two party system.

Weekly Darwin 'dumbest of them all' awards for the week ending November 14, 2009


So many entries this week..... so little time to put them all into print. Certainly all these award contestants make any critical thinking person question evolution. Here they are:

-Bathing with Sarah Palin in the 'dumbest of them all' spotlight this week is media saturated Carrie Prejean, the dethroned 'christian' Miss California who lost her title earlier this year for lack of cooperation with pageant sponsors, and after denouncing the idea of gay marriage based on her faith while her self made 'X-rated' sex video floated in cyber world, then sued pageant officials to pay for her 'tit job' and touting her 'work for the Lord', says this week, "the Bible allows for breast implants and my hairdresser is gay".

-In an understatement, perennial contestant Sarah Palin saying, "many Americans don't take me seriously".

-Levi Johnston, the father of Sarah's grandson, in an appearance at the 'Fleshbot Awards', saying his nude photo shoot for 'Playgirl' "went well, I posed with a hockey stick".

-Pamela Anderson and other environmentalists expressing outrage about an high end Russian auto maker, Dartz Car Co., offering an option on their Pombron Diamond Edition SUV (selling at $1.45 mil.) of leather seats made from whale penis.

-Los Angeles resident Christopher Loomis, 39, who found himself in jail this week after dressing up in a Spider Man costume, congregating with 3 other 'spidys' and punching out street pedestrians.

-The Peruvian construction worker who's been ingesting coins, nails and other metal objects for over a year. 2 pounds of metal were removed from his stomach this past week. He is now convalescing in a mental institution.

-'Is Our Children Learning' (about the former U.S. misunderestimated President Bush) author Paul Begala, who on his blog this week wrote that Rush Limbaugh escaped draft into the Viet Nam war because Rush had a boil on his butt and then went on to describe Limbaugh's butt.

-Jon Gosselin saying, "Kate and I will have Christmas together".

-Singer Fergie saying, "I'm bisexual" and my husband Josh is well endowed". Fergie appears in the new Rob Marshall film 'NINE' which opens next week.

....and now, this weeks winner!

Second most senior member of the Republican National Committee, Blake Hall of Idaho, was fired from his Deputy Prosecutor job after his criminal conviction for stalking his ex-girlfriend and is doing 15 days in jail. It seems Blake dumped used condoms on his girlfriends lawn on at least 10 occasions after following her home. Hall has also resigned his position with the RNC.

More to come next week.

Coin Conspiracy Puts Palin's TiT in the Wringer with FOX NEWS!


Unbelievable! FOX NEWS fact checked one of their stories! Can you believe it? Is there a glimmer of hope for FOX NEWS?

Last Friday, in her speech to a Wisconsin 'right to life' organization, The Moose Mouth, Klondike Barbie Sarah Palin more than implied The Obama administration and the Democrat congress were in an anti-christian conspiracy to secularize U.S. coins by moving the "IN GOD WE TRUST" phrase from the middle of the coin to the edge of the coin.

"A disturbing trend!", she grunted......"Who makes a decision like that?"........."Who calls a shot like that?", Sarah mocked.

Answering these questions is FOX News anchor Bret Bair who fact-checked the redesign of U.S. currency. "President Bush" (called the shot), was Bret's answer. In 2005, when the Republicans controlled congress, the new coin design was planned and approved by President Bush.

Is Sarah's tit in the wringer with her own party over this one? Our Looney Toon from Alaska was certainly off-key when she sang her newest Looney Tune. Yes?

Meanwhile, Sarah remains chirpy as she ponders the buffalo nickle trying to answer the question of what animal is depicted on it.

Sarah Palin and The Great Coin Conspiracy Disconnect


It seems Looney Toon Sarah Palin from Alaska is at it again.......while addressing a Wisconsin 'right to life' fundraiser banquet on her promotional book tour this week, Sarah has come up with still another Looney Tune.....The Great Coin Conspiracy of 2009!

It seems U.S.coins are being redesigned and Sarah is claiming an anti-christian conspiracy by moving the "in God we trust" phrase to the edge of the coin! "It's a disturbing trend", Sarah screeched to an audience of about 5000 people who paid $30. a head for rubber chicken and to hear rubber mouth Palin.

Do the math. A $150,000. take for 'the right to life' cause and Sarah gets 100k for being there. The 'cause' may have banked around 15k and Sarah got the rest. But, hey, Sarah is a capitalist.

Also during her speech, Sarah reincarnated her 'death panel' diatribe. No comment necessary on this one.

After her speech Sarah was asked to identify the animal depicted on the 'buffalo nickel', and she couldn't do it.

Hey folks, this stuff can't be made up. The scary part is that this is real stuff coming from a real person on the national political scene. Poor Sarah still doesn't know that Africa is not a nation!

Meanwhile, back in the Klondike, Levi, home from his nude photo shoots is using some of his celebrity take to file for custody of his son, Sarah's grandson.

Surely there is more to come............

Weekly Darwin 'dumbest of them all' awards for the week ending November 7, 2009

We had a lot of contenders this week for 'the dumbest of them all' Darwin award. Among them are:

-The New Jersey Hospital personnel who incorrectly operated 5 times on the same patient, 3 times on the brain, over a period of several years, and the patient himself for returning to the same hospital after the first botched surgery. After a State commission curtailed their work, news media asked hospital authorities what sanctions had been imposed and the hospital had lost 'the papers' on the matter.

-"dr." Bill Wattenberg of KGO News Talk Radio in San Francisco saying, "there is no cure for 'stupid'", and then validates his point every time he opens his mouth.

-John and Kate Goslin and the media who reports on them.

-The producers, director and anyone involved in making the flop film, AMELIA.

-The beauty contestant winner, Miss UK, formerly Miss London, who withdrew from the Miss World Beauty Pageant after getting into a bar brawl with Miss Manchester.

-Carly Fiorina who announced her candidacy for U.S. Senator in California, running in the primary against fellow (neocon) Republican Chuck Devore, one of which will face incumbent Democrat Barbara Boxer in next years general election. Fiorina, former CEO of Hewlitt-Packard, cites her organizational skills after being named one of the 20 worst CEO's of all-time by Money Magazine and after being drummed out of her CEO job by HP's Board of Directors.

-California U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer for being Barbara Boxer.

-Showboat independent U.S. Senator Joe Lieberman for his obstructionism in just about everything.

-Cross eyed Roman Catholic Benner Elk, North Carolina U.S. Representative Virginia Foxx illogically saying passage of health care reform is a greater national threat than terrorists.

-Former Ebay CEO Meg Whittman's self paid-obnoxious ad's that run every 5 minutes on radio and TV stations for her bid to be Governor of California. Whittman confesses she has not voted in most elections, saying, "shame on me".

And now, the winner:

Polygamist Raymond Jessop from the Yearning for Zion Ranch, a fundamentalist Church of Christ of Latter Day Saints organization Located in Eldorado, Texas was convicted of child sexual assault on a 15 year old girl, also a resident of Zion Ranch.

According to court records, Raymond, already married with 9 wives and having countless children (DNA Tests are continuing), was found guilty of sexual molestation after the girl was 're-assigned' from his brother to him under God's sanction. It seems Zion Ranch had it's own, living 'prophet' who governs such matters. Unfortunately for Raymond, his 'prophet' did not govern the justice system and Raymond will be doing significant prison time.

All of this brings question to evolution, doesn't it?

More next week.

Glenn Beck Hospitalized!

Yesterday, after his radio talk show, Glenn Beck said he was not feeling well and was rushed to an undisclosed hospital for what spokesmen say was an emergency appendectomy. "He's resting comfortably and will back at work soon", said Beck's spokespeople..........

Good try guys, but since Glenn has had several previously reported appendectomy's over the years any reasonable, critical thinker might wonder what really happened. According to unreliable hospital sources here's the scenario:

Glenn Beck was admitted to the hospital at 4:20 PM EST, complaining of stomach pain......doctors, ignorant of Beck's history diagnosed appendicitis and scheduled immediate surgery. Given new surgical techniques, the procedure would be microscopic with entry through the anus. To the medics surprise Becks anus was located in Becks mouth. No wonder he pops all those breath mints.

Moving forward, medics excised what they thought was an appendix. However, the specimen looked to be an embryo in the image of fellow foxtrotter, scientologist Greta Van Susteren. An immediate DNA test was administered and the findings were astounding......Glenn Beck was carrying Greta's baby!

Needless to say, Greta and Glenn's audience would not be happy with what amounted to an (alien) abortion. Naturally, this news will be suppressed and of course the embryo destroyed. But, there is more...........

Glenn's medical insurance denied payment saying his condition was pre-existing. So, Glenn will be ponying up 150k from his own deep pockets to keep all this under wraps.

Did I miss something here? Or did L. Ron Hubbard's space cadets somehow meet Rosemary's Baby using our incomparable Glenn as the vessel a'la Mary and Joesph. We would bet the stem cells in THAT embryo carry a wallop.

NY-23.....NeoCons GO DOWN in FLAMES...Big Time


As an update to last Monday's article (23 RD Congressional District Special Election), yesterday, the extreme right NeoCon faction of the GOP was dealt a crushing blow in it's effort to take control of their party.

Hand picked, litmus tested, ultra-conservative ideologue activist Doug Hoffman was soundly beaten by Democrat Bill Owens to fill out the term left vacant by Republican Congressman John Mc Hugh who joined the Obama Administration as Secretary of the Army earlier this year.

NY-23 had not elected a Democrat to office in more than 150 years. Given this history and a truckload of money along with high profile endorsements from Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Dick Army and others during an in-party fight with moderate Republicans, the election of Democrat Owens is testimony to the mess the GOP now finds itself experiencing.

23 RD Congressional District Special Election-The Fight for Control of the GOP


When Republicans lost control of both the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives in the 2006 congressional elections, and with their stunning defeats in the 2008 Presidential elections, the GOP has been in floundering shambles. Since these defeats, there has been an internal battle for which faction of the party will control it's future. It has been and is moderate-republicans in mortal combat with neo-conservative republicans as to who will define and be the face of The Republican Party. Tomorrow's special election in the 23 rd Congressional district is a major showdown in the shaping and future of the GOP.

The 23 rd Congressional District is in upstate New York and has been a Republican stronghold for generations. This district has not elected a Democrat to Congress in more than 100 years.

Earlier this year, after President Obama selected sitting 23 rd District Republican Congressman John Mc Hugh to be Secretary of the Army, under New York State Constitutional Law, the governor called a special election with candidates chosen by the State Committees from each party.

The Republican choice was Dede Scozzafara, a former Mayor and current State Assembly woman in the 23 rd District. Scozzafara is a moderate Republican believing in the 'right of choice' in the abortion debate.

The Democrat choice is businessman/attorney Bill Owens who has not held elected office in the past. His stances on the issues are not too unlike Scozzafara's and in the beginning the race did not look all that exciting UNTIL.........

........the neo-con faction of the Republican Party took issue with the Republican State Party choice of Scozzafara and put their own candidate up for election. His name is Doug Hoffman, an accountant and ideologue of all-issues neo-conservative.

And the endorsements followed, as did the money----lots of it, mostly from the national neo-con coffers. Sarah Palin, (Joe the Plumber), Rush Limbaugh and the Cheney's endorsed neo-con Hoffman, while Newt Gingrich and RNC chair Michael Steele endorsed the moderate Scozzafara. Let the 'games' begin!

Neo-con operatives took control of Hoffman's campaign and the 'swift boat' type ads started running, against Republican Scozzafara. In public and private polls conducted last week, there seemed to be a near dead heat among the three major candidates, with Scozzara running last. This past weekend, Dede Scozzafara suspended her candidacy citing money issues and not having enough funds to combat the national neo-con political contingency and subsequently endorsed her Democrat opponent. Now, it's two-way race, although Scozzafara's name will remain on the ballot.

In still another twist, today VP Joe Biden is speaking directly to moderate Republicans and getting warm receptions. At the same time, neo-con Republicans are getting decent receptions from conservative Democrats. It's a circus!

Should the neo-con candidate win tomorrows election, it will embolden their ideology and serve as a tinplate for many future congressional elections. Should they lose, it will be an essential victory for moderate Republican philosophy and strengthen the faces of those representing it.

And so, we wait with interest to the outcome of the 23 rd Congressional District election.

Who thought special elections in an 'off' year would not be interesting?
