Yeah, you read that headline right, apparently Fox News contributor Liz Trotta recently made headlines Sunday when she reacted on the air to a report that there has been a 64% rise in violent sexual assaults in the miltary. Her reaction was, “What did they expect? These people are in close contact.”
Than’s when our guy, Jon Stewart was so shocked by her nonchalance regarding women’s safety, and her implied view that men can’t help but assault their coworkers. that Stewart in turn commented “You know what they say, you can’t make a co-ed omelette without raping a few eggs,” he said, mimicking her audacity.
Stewart was even more “horror-tained” by Trotta’s next remarks regarding military spending. According to her, abuse counseling and response efforts are “bureaucracy” and a waste of money on women who are simply “being raped too much”
You may recall last month that the Fox Business Channel’s Eric Bolling went off the rails by suggesting that the universally loved anthropomorphic talking animal puppets were leftist, anti-capitalist Commies for the “negative depiction” of oilman, Tex Richman, played by Chris Cooper in their holiday-themed film.
We are reminded of when Then VP Dan Quayle cited fictional TV newswoman Murphy Brown (Candice Bergen) for having an non-traditional family lifestyle.
While in Boston (apparently at bunker Hill), Palin said the following about Paul Revere’s Ride
“He who warned uh, the British that they weren’t gonna be takin’ away our arms, uh by ringing those bells, and um, makin’ sure as he’s riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be sure and we were going to be free, and we were going to be armed.”
On the evening of April 18, 1775, Paul Revere was sent for by Dr. Joseph Warren and instructed to ride to Lexington, Massachusetts, to warn Samuel Adams and John Hancock that British troops were marching to arrest them. After being rowed across the Charles River to Charlestown by two associates, Paul Revere borrowed a horse from his friend Deacon John Larkin. While in Charlestown, he verified that the local “Sons of Liberty” committee had seen his pre-arranged signals. (Two lanterns had been hung briefly in the bell-tower of Christ Church in Boston, indicating that troops would row “by sea” across the Charles River to Cambridge, rather than marching “by land” out Boston Neck. Revere had arranged for these signals the previous weekend, as he was afraid that he might be prevented from leaving Boston).
On the way to Lexington, Revere “alarmed” the country-side, stopping at each house, and arrived in Lexington about midnight. As he approached the house where Adams and Hancock were staying, a sentry asked that he not make so much noise. “Noise!” cried Revere, “You’ll have noise enough before long. The regulars are coming out!” After delivering his message, Revere was joined by a second rider, William Dawes, who had been sent on the same errand by a different route. Deciding on their own to continue on to Concord, Massachusetts, where weapons and supplies were hidden, Revere and Dawes were joined by a third rider, Dr. Samuel Prescott. Soon after, all three were arrested by a British patrol. Prescott escaped almost immediately, and Dawes soon after. Revere was held for some time and then released. Left without a horse, Revere returned to Lexington in time to witness part of the battle on the Lexington Green.
Next up, she either can’t spell, or is incredibly stupid:
She recently mis-tweeted the name of Statue Of Liberty.
Here is the tweet:
Keep in mind that this is a woman wants Republicans to believe that she can become their next president. I honestly believe that somewhere in the morass that is her brain she keeps thinking “Hey, how tough can it be to be president, Morgan Freeman did it.”
Further, I feel that either she’s afraid of deciding on even the most simple of choices for fear of offending someone who chose the other thing, or she flat-out doesn’t know the answer.
Then, of course, she decided to bitch-slap fellow Republican Mitch Romney about his stance on Health Care on the very same day that Romney announced that he was running for President. In regards to her upstaging Romney, the thing is, when you’re a media whore, it never occurs to you that someone else deserves the spotlight for a moment or two, even if that person is ostensibly on your team.
Finally, it is no wonder that she would criticize Romney for his (nearly identical) version of “Obamacare” because, when Governatrix of Alaska, she signed a bill that would force raped women to pay for their own forensic rape kits.
Yeah, We totally want this ignorant, insensitive, crazy woman to be our next president.
A week or so back, State Representative Steve Cohen took the Republican party to task over their repeated lies about the Heath Care Bill. During that speech he compared their constant lies to the Lies the Nazis told about Jews which came to be believed as truth. Jon Stewart took him to task on this point, as did others (especially Faux News).
This started off a media firestorm that, well, follow the video clips of the Daily Show (after the jump) to see how it has played out thus far.
Yeah, we love Jon Stewart, and the fact that his liberal bias skewers the self-righteous, pompous, moral outrage and superiority of Faux news, but you really have to hand it to Jon when he gets it right.
As the year comes to a close and everyone (including the ass-hats we’ve elected to government) are spouting “Peace on Earth and goodwill towards men” the Republican Party (which has turned all things 9/11 into a rallying cry for force-feeding us their private agenda) has chosen as their legacy to stop all legislation until tax cuts for the WEALTHIEST 2% Americans are repealed (from 36% to 39%) while they allow 9/11 responders (the guys who actually spent a year or more actually digging in the rubble that used to be the Twin Towers) to (quite literally) die because the Republican party refuses to pass the Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act that would give them financial relief.
Last night, Stewart’s final show of 2010 was entirely dedicated to uncovering this travesty.
